A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Tauren Monks. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

71) Mist Globes

Warmongering Gladiator’s Ironskin Helm, Fierce Gladiator’s Ironskin Spaulders, Sunset Leather Tunic, Brown Belt of Humbling Gravity, Leggings of the Chosen Dead (N), Loamflake Bracers*, Grandmaster’s Footwraps, Staff of Ox-Hoof Thunder
This kit is all about these fabulous shoulders from the PvP recolor of the Antorus Monk set. While I was putting it together, I’d originally chosen a fancier chestpiece. After I’d assembled the other items, I reviewed chestpiece options again and this one jumped out at me as being the right shade of brown to coordinate with the other items I’d chosen, and its plain, practical style was perfect for allowing the shoulders to really stand out.

A collection of outfits actually worn in-game by my Blood Elf Death Knight. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

Some of the outfits in this collection are legitimate Transmogrification kits for a plate-wearing character. Others are RP-Clothes costumes intended to imitate the look of the blue-haired Kirin Tor-affiliated elves found in various locations. I’m not sure if these NPCs are actually supposed to be High Elves that have become blue-haired because of their exposure to arcane energy, or blue dragons in humanoid form. At any rate, the only way to achieve that appearance as a player character is to be a Blood Elf Death Knight.

12) Winter’s Kiss

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Symbolic Pauldrons, Iceguard Breastplate, Royal Qiraji Belt, Iceguard Leggings, Warleader’s Gauntlets & Greaves, Sonic Spear
The flower crown takes this outfit concept to eleven.

11) Everlasting Loveliness

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Lovely Blue Dress, Iceguard Leggings, Boots of the Fallen Hero, Decalcified Elven Spear
As of Lunar Festival in 2020, the flower crowns can now be Mogged year-round, making this Love is in the Air outfit possible!

Once, this was my tribe…
(and she’d still wear the arm paint, though not the face paint, if that option becomes available in Shadowlands)

What was that I said about not making any more Allied Races alts unless I liked their Heritage Armor enough to level from scratch for it?

Well, I’m not all that keen on the Lightforged Draenei Heritage Armor — not for a Mage, at least — but I just haven’t been able to get the notion of having a Lightforged Draenei among the Minor Mages out of my head.

Meet Krystaliza.

I don’t know much about who she is, other than that she is a long-lost relative of Kaprikka. As far as Kaprikka was aware, all of her progenitors had perished in one Legion attack or another by the time the Draenei arrived on Draenor; her parents, too, were killed in the Orcish rampage. I’m not sure at quite what point in the 25000 years of the Draenei’s flight from Kil’jaeden that Xe’ra arrived and took those who wished to follow her off in the Xenedar, so I don’t know exactly how many generations back Krystaliza is a sister of one of Kaprikka’s ancestors — but for each of them to find that they do, in fact, have a blood relative still living was a delightful shock.

Part of my desire to have this character on my roster came from wanting to pair the Lightforged tabard with the Draenic Silk Robes, as seen above.

Part of it comes from a couple of occasions when I’ve made a white and gold outfit and wished that I had a blonde Lightforged Draenei to model it in the Dressing Room.

And part of it is that with the Orb of Deception, a Lightforged Draenei can become a Highmountain Tauren (or a Gnome can be a Mulgore Tauren), thereby allowing me to pretend — for five minutes at a time, at least — that I have Tauren Mages!


Come on, Blizzard! Some of the Crazed Mages in Blackrock Caverns are Tauren, and they’ve been in the game since Cataclysm! Because they use ice and fire magic already, I think that Tauren becoming Mages as a divergence from Shamanism could be just as valid as Tauren becoming Priests and Paladins as a divergence from Druidism.
But as much as I’d like this to happen, it’s not likely to happen. I’ll just go sit in the corner with the folks who really really want to play Gnome or Night Elf Paladins…

A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Tauren & Highmountain Tauren Druids. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

77) We Are All Akunda

Crown of Infinite Prosperity, Demonic Gladiator’s Dragonhide Vest/Sentinel Breastplate, Vine Waistband, Noblewoman’s Skirt, Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Stormsky Greatcloak, Sethrak Warden’s Staff
The worshippers of Akunda are all named “Akunda the [adjective]” when you first meet them, which makes them seem like rather creepy cultists. After the corrupt cult leader is overthrown, Akunda’s worshipppers remain devoted to the loa himself, but they regain their own unique names.
The male NPCs wear Meowl’s Mane instead of the flower crown. The NPCs are wearing the Mythic coloration of the Antorus Druid Tier chestpiece. I only have access to the PvP version (Yay Legion BoA Marks of Honor!), so my version of this outfit is much too dark in the chestpiece when I use the correct style. Of the other options I had available in my collection, I thought that the Sentinel Breastplate was the best approximation of both the colors and the style.

76) Blossoming Wilds

Crown of Boundless Courage, Palm Frond Shoulderpads, Jinxed Hoodoo Skin, Moss Cinch, Jinxed Hoodoo Kilt, Jangdor’s Handcrafted Gloves, Staff of the Verdant Circle
Kasheena wanted to wear the pink flowers, too. These pastel green items seemed like the nicest things to wear with them from her current Transmogrification level bracket.

75) Dreaming Glory

Crown of Boundless Courage, Mantle of Autumn, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Headhunter’s Belt, Luminary Kilt, Gloves of the Fang, Spire of Coagulated Globules (N)
Kerisa got tired of being moody and gloomy and wanted to wear pink flowers and be bright and cheerful again.

74) Blood Moon

Crown of Eternal Memorial, Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Vest of Flowing Water, Feral Cord, Gloomtalon’s Spare Kilt, Rapscallion Boots, Talon Guard Staff
It must be the gloomy influences of Nazmir, Drustvar, and Darkshore that made Kerisa want to go dark for her Lunar Festival outfit this year.

73) Druid of the Cycle II

Antlers of Malorne, Thunderlord Shoulderguards, Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor, Ferocious Gladiator’s Dragonhide Belt, Savage Leggings, Gloves of the Flayed, Wild Gladiator’s Boots of Victory, Antiseptic-Soaked Dressing, Twin’s Pact
The rattling bones of the Tauren Heritage Armor chestpiece suggested a variation on the Drust/Kul Tiran Druid Forms-inspired outfit that I originally created for my Night Elf Druid (Kerithian’s kit #16).

72) Preened Feathers

Preened Tribal War Feathers, Preened Ironfeather Shoulders, Preened Ironfeather Breastplate, Preened Wildfeather Leggings, Nimble Leather Gloves, Swashbuckler’s Boots, Staff of Orgrimmar*
This hardly counts as a Mog at all because half of it is just the default appearances of the Intellect leather Heirloom items — but I am rather pleased with how I’ve found some gloves and boots that complement the pants so nicely.
Why are the Heirloom pants not the same color as the Heirloom shoulders and chestpiece? I suppose we will never know — but it does make wearing them un-Mogged look a bit odd.

71) Ancestral Ghostwalker


Ancestral Chieftain’s Headdress Mantle & Greatbelt, Boneshredder Jerkin & Britches, Ghostwalker Gloves & Boots, Darksnare Dagger/Twin’s Pact
The white furs wanted to go together.
