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

51) Vestment of the Chosen Dead

Vestment of the Chosen Dead (N) with Gossamer Belt and Staff of the Plague Beast
At last, the perfect set of armor to wear with this staff from Naxxramas!
My favorite thing about this set is the horns on the hip. Although they appear over the robe, they’re actually part of the pants. I could wear the horns with any robe I want to!
Confusingly, the Ensemble for this set is called “Vestment of the Chosen Dead”, but it is called “Regalia of the Chosen Dead” in the Sets tab of the Appearances collection.

The first character for whom I made a Sunreaver outfit was my Warrior. I made a rather dark kit, then had an idea for a brighter kit. When I made Sunreaver outfits for other characters, I decided to do a darker outfit and a brighter outfit for each of them, too.

At the time that I made my Warrior’s outfits, the (Tournament) Sunreaver and Sunreaver Onslaught tabards were identical. At some time before Patch 7.0, the Sunreaver Onslaught tabard was changed to look somewhat different from the (Tournament) Sunreaver tabard.

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

63) Seeker for the Tribe


Stormforged Shoulders, Shamblehide Chestguard, Sash of the Grand Hunt, Barbaric Legstraps, Murkblood Oven Mitts, Marauder’s Boots, Kodo Mallet + Sternhorn’s Shield/Tribute Gun, Thunder Bluff Tabard
Kamalia and Kawneiha do the “Mom & Me” thing to show off weapons to coordinate with this kit for both of the mail-wearing classes.

62) Arrowsplitter of the Silver Covenant or the Blue Flight



Shoulders of Lightning Reflexes, Blue Dragonscale Breastplate, Doc’s Belt, Blue Dragonscale Leggings, Finder’s Keepers, Star-Strider Boots, Lohn’goron/Crypt Fiend Slayer
A modified version of an outfit originally designed for mini-Kam — but elves can’t be Shaman, so I’ve re-envisioned it for a Hunter.

61) Zealous Houndkeeper

Helm of Affinity, Ravager’s Mantle, Inferno Forged Hauberk, Scarlet Belt & Gauntlets, Oronok’s Old Leggings, Bloodmail Boots*, Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade, Ashjre’thul, Crossbow of Smiting
I know there’s a full Scarlet Crusade mail set, which can be purchased at the Darkmoon Faire by a mail-wearer wearing the Scarlet Crusade tabard — but I’d rather build my own kit.
I wasn’t feeling quite satisfied with any of the gun or bow options available to a level 60 character, so I looked at crossbows, which I rarely use. Huh, when did I get this crossbow? Ah, it drops in Blackwing Lair. I must have picked it up while I was farming BWL with all my alts about a year ago, but I didn’t pay much attention to it because I prefer guns or regular bows.

One of the more intriguing things to have come out of the Battle for Azeroth beta is these golden-eyed variants of the first three Blood Elf faces:

image from Wowhead
It’s being speculated that Lady Liadrin’s model might be updated to use one of these faces, as her Hearthstone incarnation has golden eyes.

Although it’s tempting, therefore, to roll a golden-eyed Blood Elf Paladin in Battle for Azeroth, when would I have the time and energy to actually play & level her?

As much as I would like to have Kaelinda become a Sunwell-purified Sin’dorei with golden eyes, alas, none of these faces is her face.

I don’t have characters who use the face on the left or the face in the middle, but that face on the right is Kelisanna’s face… I suspect that sometime between now and the beginning of Battle for Azeroth, my Rogue is going to have some kind of profound experience at the Sunwell — and she’s probably not going to tell me exactly what it is, because whatever it is, it’s not going to stop her from continuing to be an Outlaw… Or maybe it’s just the exposure to all that treasure in the Vault of the Uncrowned that will have turned her eyes that color 😛

~*~*~

Battle for Azeroth launches on August 14th?!

I guess I’d really better start hustling on getting the rest of the Twelve Classes leveled and through their 7.0 Order Hall Campaigns, then, while there will still be lots of people in Legion content for them to run all of those required dungeons with…

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

53) Aspirant’s Garb of the Chosen Dead

Garb of the Chosen Dead (LFR) with Nibelung
Kerisa was fortunate enough to have the Ensemble for the LFR version of the Trial of Valor set drop for her while she was working on the quest to get the Normal version.

52) Shu’halo Furs

Bristlebark/Lupine set with Chieftain’s Headdress, Sentinel Girdle, Cape of Thunder Bluff, Thunder Bluff Tabard, and Agamaggan’s Quill
Because of the Lionfur Armor — a brighter, more golden version of the chestpiece of this set which is a rare drop from a Mulgore rare spawn (and is therefore hideously expensive on the AH) — I think of this style of leather armor as being characteristically Tauren.
Kerisa happened to be wearing this outfit when she did Highmountain. I liked how it looked with the baby basket, and she is the only one of my Tauren characters who has marriage and a child already established in her RP story.

51) Darkmoon Flower Seller

Songbird Blouse, Dervish Belt, Leggings of the Fang, Inscribed Leather Gloves, Dark Leather Boots, Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Staff of the Verdant Circle
“All I want is a place somewhere,
Far away from the cold night air,
With one enormous chair —
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly?
Lots of coal making lots of heat!
Lots of chocolate for me to eat!
Warm [face (?)], warm hands, warm feet!
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly!
Someone’s head resting on my knee
[Nice and cozy (?)] as it could be
Who takes good care of me —
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly…”
My Fair Lady
(If you’re going to wear the Darkmoon Top Hat to get that sweet 10% XP and rep buff, you might as well own the look.)

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

43) Crimson Pugilist

Adventurer’s Bandana, Tribal Vest, Feral Cord, Wolf Rider’s Leggings, Bard’s Gloves & Boots, Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade, The Horseman’s Sinister Slicer
Although my Rogue is limited to using daggers or swords, a Monk ought to use an utterly simple fist weapon such as these classic brass knuckles with this kit.

42) Silvermoon Torch Runner

Bloody Bandanna, Silvermoon Tunic, Burning Blade Devotee’s Cinch, Ghostclaw Leggings, Bonechewer Spikegloves & Shredboots, Yaungol Fire Carrier
Shortly after Transmogrification debuted, I participated in an Olympics-themed Transmogrification contest hosted by JD Kenada of Amateur Azerothian. Each contestant was assigned a faction to represent, though they only had to use the colors & thematic motifs of that faction in their first outfit, a kit for their flag-bearer in the opening parade of nationsfactions. I got Silvermoon, and designed a kit very much like this for my flag-bearer/torch runner.
I’ve made a few outfits that were very similar to this for Kelisanna in the past, but with the most recent Winter Olympics fresh in memory, I thought it an opportune moment to make this particular variation on the theme.

41) Omen of Plunder

Crown of Dark Blossoms, Bonechewer Shoulderguards, Festival Suit, Rope-Grip Gloves, Felshroud Boots
The black tint of the upgraded appearance of the Outlaw Artifact swords or the base red tint of the Mage Tower Challenge rapiers would also be fabulous with this outfit.

It’s time for another Transmogrification + creative writing challenge from WoWable!
WM3 Episode 2 asks:

What is World of Warcraft’s most romantic place?

I immediately thought of this spot in eastern Gilneas

which looks like it was designed with RP weddings in mind

…if it weren’t for the minor detail that it always seems to be raining in Gilneas.

Next, my thoughts turned to the Cathedral in Gilneas City, which is made especially romantic by the stained glass windows and the warmth of polished wood instead of stone for the rest of the construction of the building.


Crown of Prosperity, Noblewoman’s Finery & Skirt, Gloves of the Messiah, Sandals of Ritual
Kymberlea and her husband Bertie are middle-class tradespeople, so they probably would have been married in a smaller church in their own neighborhood rather than in the Cathedral itself — but of course in the abbreviated version of the City that exists in the game world, the Cathedral is all there is.

~*~*~

This little gazebo in Stormshield also seems to have been placed with romance in mind.


~*~*~

Suramar as a whole is a very romantically-designed place. I don’t remember exactly where in the city I found this gorgeous indoor garden.

Despite being in a cemetery, this balcony with its view overlooking Suramar City is one of the most romantic spots in the zone.

Another is the “Fountain” teleport location of the Occuleth’s Workshop complex.

It doesn’t have quite as wide of a view of the City below, but the little tables with food set out are just perfect for a tete a tete.

Pretty Posies
Crown of Courage, Scholarly Robes/Gorestained Garb, Mana-Cord of Deception (LFR), Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Ruby Slippers, Pilfered Ethereal Blade, Suntouched Flowers
I didn’t come up with this robe + belt combo myself; I saw someone else wearing it several months ago.

~*~*~

A few years ago, I participated in a series of Transmogrification challenges for which one of the prompts was “married”. These outfits are updated and adapted from the outfits I put together for that prompt.

The locations in these pictures are on Sunstrider Isle, where brand-new Blood Elves begin their adventures.

Blissful Bride


Crown of Good Fortune, Aurora Mantle & Robe, Mana-Cord of Deception (LFR), Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sage’s Boots, Mardenholde Staff
The little knife on the belt may have some sort of ceremonial function or symbolic meaning — or it might be purely decorative.

Weeping Widow



Crown of Dark Blossoms, Silver-Thread Amice, Black Velvet Robes, Mana-Cord of Deception (N), Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Chillwind Staff
Considering that 80 – 90 % of the Quel’dorei population is supposed to have perished in Arthas’ attack on Eversong Woods and the Sunwell, very few Sin’dorei are likely to have their families fully intact. Kalaneia’s husband was among those who gave their lives attempting to defend Silvermoon.
Kalaneia believed that her estranged daughter had been lost, too, until Kishalla showed up at Dreadscar Rift demanding that the Netherlord help her find her missing mistress, Shinfel Blightsworn. That both mother and daughter have become Warlocks has not made their relationship any less complicated…

~*~*~

A well might be a traditional location for a Tauren wedding — for a migratory or semi-nomadic people, a good well might become an anchoring location for their journeys, a resting place, and a gathering place where different tribes would meet and trade.



Unfortunately, my ideal Tauren bridal attire isn’t truly Moggable — the Crown of Courage can only be Mogged during Lunar Festival, and the Spring Robes can only be Mogged during Noblegarden. At other times, the actual items must be equipped.
