61) Funerary Plate of the Chosen Dead

Funerary Plate of the Chosen Dead (N)
Although my Paladin is the one who did the quest to get this set of armor, it seemed like my Warrior ought to be the one to wear it, to use it with the Fury Artifact swords.

There is among the tauren of Kalimdor a tribe named “Highmountain”, perhaps in distant memory of Huln and his kin. Along with the Bloodhoof, the Ragetotem, and the Grimtotem, the Highmountain are renowned as warriors who led out against and bore the brunt of the constant attacks from centaurs, harpies, quilboars, and gnolls. The most well-known members of this tribe are Jerrik, Melgromm, and Trag.

When, following Eitrigg, the warriors of the Horde assaulted the Broken Shore, not all of them were snatched away by Odyn’s Val’kyr. Among those left behind, fallen, was Kaiopeqa of the Highmountain tribe.

~*~*~

After raising General Nazgrim as the first of the new Four Horsemen, The Deathlord wondered if the Lich King had given her this power just to fulfil his ends… or if she could perhaps use it for her own, as well. For all of the tolerance and kindness that had been shown her by The Farseer and others, the friendships she had managed to forge — and despite having managed to locate and regroup several of the Grimtotem Ningha during her time at Frostwall Garrison* — she still felt lonely, somehow. Now, the burdens of being Deathlord weighed heavily upon her, and she desired an apprentice. Knowing of the warriors’ catastrophe from her friend The Battlelord, The Deathlord sent one of Dread Commander Thalanor’s aerial patrols to do some reconnaissance of the area and bring her back a test subject — preferably a tauren female, if they could find one. They brought her Kaiopeqa.

The Deathlord raised the Blades of the Fallen Prince over the corpse of the young tauren warrior and Kaiopeqa arose into undeath filled with horror and hatred and unholy bloodthirst.

The Deathlord promptly assigned her to collect the Maw of the Damned and Apocalypse. When her new apprentice had departed on these errands, The Deathlord heard the Lich King’s hoarse whisper in her mind: Very well, I shall let you have this one indulgence. But no more. This power is mine, to be used for my purposes and mine alone. You will use it only as I command.
The Deathlord replied: You are indulgent, my liege. I know how you allowed me to obtain these blades. I know how you permitted The Archmage to take Felo’melorn. I am satisfied.

The Deathlord watched and waited, patiently, as Kaiopeqa went through the same sequence of emotions as she herself had after being released from the Lich King’s grasp at Light’s Hope Chapel all those years ago. Horror and hatred sank into despair and depression. From those emerged, in time, a desperate need to control the sadism that had been inextricably imbued into the soul by the process of being raised as a Death Knight by channeling it into useful service to society**. When Kaiopeqa reached that stage, The Deathlord assigned Kaiopeqa and her tribesman Trag to respond to Archmage Khadgar’s request for heroes to aid the tauren of Highmountain.

The two Highmountain returned from Highmountain filled with more questions than answers concerning the origin of their tribe. More significantly, the experience had given Kaiopeqa a form of… not exactly peace… but consolation, perhaps.

“When I was in Tanaan Jungle”, Kaiopeqa told The Deathlord, “I saw the Eredar, and I saw the Draenei, and I felt sorry for what the Eredar had allowed themselves to become. It is better to be this and be able to continue to fight against the Legion, than to lie idle in the Earthmother’s Embrace and be unable to prevent all of our people from becoming like the Feltotem.”

* Aurochs Grimbane, Kaasa Blighthoof, Kilga Mourningsong, Tigar Frosthoof, and Tipa Rimehorn — all of them had taken new surnames that renounced their Grimtotem origins and embraced their identities as Knights of the Ebon Blade.
And then there was that taunka woman, Kaumaleia — though she hardly counted, either as a fellow Death Knight or as a friend. Kaumaleia had somehow managed to shake off almost all of the qualities of being a Death Knight except the unfortunate condition of being undead — and she managed to ignore even that most of the time, too. Kregga suspected that Kaumaleia had been one of the ice-shaman of her people before her death and raising, and that the similarity of that magic to the way in which a Death Knight wielded frost was what had allowed her to elude most of the corruption from the Lich King. Or perhaps the Lich King had never truly gotten ahold of Kaumaleia because she was so remarkably silly… Kregga could barely tolerate her.

** Death Knights love Dailies because those tasks give them ample opportunities to cause the suffering and death they require to quell their own pain.

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 (*).

54) Dark Before Dawn


Fierce Combatant’s Silk Cowl Amice & Treads, Robe of Glowing Stone (N), Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle, Nightvale Gloves, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Staff of Immaculate Recovery
A Priestly sort of kit, to be sure — but Kaelinda is the one who has the Legion PvP items, thanks to her insta-WQ Order Hall perk.

53) Wildfire

Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Vestment of Summer, Vicious Embersilk Belt, Warmongering Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess + Nightvale Wristwraps, Kurkenstoks, Mistyreed Torch
If one happens to be a Mage, the Flame Orbs of Felo’melorn provide the perfect finishing touch for this outfit.

52) Dusty Petals

Snowblind set with Chillwind Staff
This coloration of the Legion cloth questing set is obtained in Highmountain.

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 (*).

66) Burning Ice

Rocket-Chief Pauldrons, Formidable Chestpiece, Girdle of Living Flame, Defender Leggings, Engraved Gauntlets & Boots, Tabard of Summer Flames, Steelhawk Crossbow
A more subtle blue seemed like the right way to go for this outfit.
After the holiday ended, I wasn’t feeling any particular inspiration for a new outfit, so I put Kawneiha back into her “Great Tauren Hunter” kit (#54).

65) Triumphant Flame

Triumphant set with Helm of the Fire Festival, Mantle of the Fire Festival, Masterwork Leggings, and Emberhawk Crossbow
A silly outfit for the Midsummer Fire Festival.
There are other plate-like golden mail sets (Masterwork, Radiant, Sparkleshell) and a handful of scale-like golden mail sets (Burnished, Dreamwalker, Captain’s, Glimmering). I like the Triumphant set best with the festival helm and shoulders, but you may like one of these other sets better.

64) Unseen Path Blues

Warmongering Gladiator’s Chain Helm & Armor, Stained Shoulderguards, Wild Combatant’s Waistguard of Cruelty, Spider Venom Legguards, Trailseeker Gauntlets & Greaves, Wolfsfur Greatcloak
Several Unseen Path NPCs are wearing an outfit consisting of the chestpiece from the normal mode HFC Hunter Tier set with the Bearzerker’s Spaulders, Warmongering Combatant’s Waistguard of Cruelty, Trailseeker gloves & boots, Marshwater Mantle, and a pair of leather pants that don’t have a mail equivalent.
I’m so very very fond of the blue-white-gold color scheme that whenever there is gear with faction-dichotomous appearances, I almost always like the Alliance version better. Warlords did an interesting thing with the Gladiator PvP sets in Seasons 2 & 3: for both seasons, the gear models were the same as the HFC Tier sets, but in Season 2, each faction got their own color (red-tinted for Horde, blue-tinted for Alliance), and in Season 3, the set was now the other faction’s color (blue-tinted for Horde, red-tinted for Alliance).

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.
