Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

— Burt Bacharach & Hal David, sung by The Carpenters

I was sitting in a long meeting earlier this afternoon and this wandered out of my pen and onto my notebook page. Apparently Kaelinda’s relationship with her Special Friend back in Silvermoon City is at the stage of mutual longing, yet mutual trepidation about actually expressing the feeling.

Now that I’ve reached my primary Patch 8.2 goal of obtaining the Tauren Heritage Armor, what next?
Securing flying in Battle for Azeroth zones ought to be the next major goal, right?

I am currently about a quarter of the way from Honored to Revered with the Unshackled, and I’m about 2/3rds done with the “get 3000 XP for your Kelfin buddies” quest.

I prioritize my Kelfin buddy’s quests, because that’s the gate on the zone story questchain. I do those, plus whatever Mardivas puzzle chests are up, and whatever WQs I pass through on the way to my Kelfin buddy’s quests and the Mardivas puzzle chests. I don’t try to do all the WQs in the zone. Although I pick up the Requisition and Bounty quests, I mostly ignore them because even with the nerfs, I rarely manage to complete them “as I go along” while doing my higher priority objectives, and I don’t ever feel like running around the zone looking for those things after I’ve completed my higher priority objectives. I’ve picked up an Unshackled Contract, so I’ve been doing the Zandalar Emissaries again, too — if I feel like I have the time and energy.

I’ll figure out a Mechagon routine when I get there, which won’t be until after I’ve reached Revered in Nazjatar.

Besides various RL events and the uncomfortable realization that the beginning of Fall semester is only about 5 weeks away, so I really need to get back to work on getting my courses set up, I’m getting distracted again by other things I want to accomplish in Azeroth.

Now that I’ve got my (Kalimdor) Tauren Heritage Armor, part of me wants to abandon BfA content for awhile and just level my Highmountain Tauren Druid up to 110 so she can get her Highmountain Tauren Heritage Armor.

Thinking about that reminds me that I want to get Kaelinda up to 120 to get the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor. (There’s my Void Elf to be leveled, too, but she’s much lower priority because I am less interested in the Void Elf Heritage Armor.)

And what about Kaylynda and the whole Alliance side of the story — not to mention recruiting the Kul Tirans?

And then there’s my Tauren Druid, for whom I’ve been collecting a bunch of leather Island Expeditions stuff off of the AH, and my Night Elf Druid, who would like to give being dark-eyed a try…

…But, flying

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

41) Red Suede Prom Dress



Chestguard of Insidious Desire, Illidari Belt, Gloomtalon’s Spare Kilt, Bard’s Gloves & Boots, Misery’s End
If I’m remembering correctly, two-piece formals started to come into style in the real world about a decade or so ago.
I tried this kit with Hidden gloves, but the chestpiece includes wrappings around the lower arms, and I decided that it just looked better with the matching gloves on.
The red version of the Glaive of the Fallen carried by the Illidari Enforcers on the Fel Hammer would be perfect for this outfit, but alas, it doesn’t seem to be available to players.

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

12) Aethrynn’s Judgment

Vindictive Gladiator’s Scaled Armor with Ferocious Gladiator’s Scaled Helm, Judgment Spaulders Belt & Gauntlets, Hyperion Vambraces, and Sin’dorei Warblade
The name for this set comes from Aethrynn’s Everwarm Chestplate, the BOE lookalike item for the Normal mode raid equivalent of this PvP chestpiece.
This combination only works for Horde characters because the Alliance version of the Vindictive Gladiator’s set is blue.

11) Indomitable Vows

Ferocious Gladiator’s Scaled Helm, Pauldrons of Roaring Flame, Breastplate of Solemn Vows, Crimson Girdle of the Indomitable, Honorary Combat Engineer’s Burnished Legplates, Conqueror’s Aegis Handguards, Master Cannoneer Boots, Cataclysm’s Edge
This kit started with the helm, shoulders, and boots, and then I had to figure out what went in the middle.

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 (*).

69) Nazmiracle

Zanchuli Crest, Saurifeather Mantle, Red Mageweave Vest, Apothecary’s Waistband, Astralaan Pants, Rotting Handwraps + Earthmender’s Bracer of Shattering, Infernoweave Boots, Dragon’s Blood Cape, Formal White Shirt, Talanji’s Expedition Tabard, Wild Combatant’s Battle Staff
A striking ensemble that is hauntingly reminiscent of the blood trolls that Talanji’s Expedition seeks to contain.

68) Dazar’Alor Special Investigator

Zanchuli Crest, Wild Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Goldweave Tunic, Serenity Belt, Astralaan Pants, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess + Loa Speaker’s Cuffs, Gnomish Casting Boots, Ragged Azsharan Sail Fragment, Wild Combatant’s Battle Staff, Formal White Shirt, Talanji’s Expedition Tabard
A mostly white and gold outfit to coordinate with the mostly white and gold Talanji’s Expedition Tabard.
Might be perceived as blue and black under certain lighting conditions.

67) Troll Action Battle Princess


Bloodhex Hood, Warmongering Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, High Councillor’s Tunic, Cord of Unhinged Malice, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Pyrotex Ignition Cloth + Loa Speaker’s Cuffs, Kurkenstoks, Cloak of Everburning Knowledge, Warmongering Combatant’s Battle Staff, Talanji’s Expedition Tabard
I pushed Kamalia to Exalted with Talanji’s Expedition primarily so that I could do this with its tabard.
Here are a couple of variations:

Alanna’s Embrace (from Old Scholomance; no longer available)

Vestments of the Shifting Sands + Astralaan Pants

66) Tidespray Linen


Tidespray Linen set with Fangcaller’s Staff (H)/Tidespray Linen set with Lord Aldrius’ Greatstaff (A)
The crafted gear from Battle for Azeroth has faction-dichotomous appearances. For Horde characters, the tailored Tidespray Linen set has the same appearance as the Loa Speaker quest set from Nazmir. For Alliance characters, the Tidespray Linen set has the same appearance as the Wickerwoven quest set from Drustvar. If Horde characters want the Alliance appearance, they should look for the Heartsbane set on the AH. If Alliance characters want the Horde appearance, they should look for the Bloodhex set on the AH.

65) Flames of Fate

Firehawk Hood (N), Mantle of False Virtue, Robes of Fate, Mage-Fury Girdle, Archivist’s Gloves, Oilfoot Slippers, Felo’melorn (default appearance, original tint)
I’ve used the beige and purple versions of this set (with my Priest and my Void Elf, respectively), so now it’s time to use the red version.
The End Time dungeon version of this location would be somewhat more appropriate, but I didn’t feel like playing the lottery with whether Baine would be up when I went into the dungeon.

64) Sunsworn Soulwarden



Hood of Misplaced Dreams, Swiftheal Mantle, Robe of Glowing Stone (N), Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle, Gloves of Piscine Attraction + Bracers of the Black Dream, Saltarello Shoes, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Mardenholde Staff
After spending a number of years as a curator of the renewed Sunwell, Kaelydia travelled with Lady Liadrin’s Sunsworn to Auchindoun on Draenor-of-the-alternate-timeway. During her time there, she became good friends with Soulbinder Tuulani.
There are very few cloth-wearers among the Sunsworn, and the most interesting item of clothing they wear is a yellow recolor of the Scarlet Sin’dorei Robes that isn’t available to players, so I have instead taken inspiration for Kaelydia’s Sunsworn outfit from Tuulani’s gear.

63) Coalition Wizard

Helm of Arcane Purity, Duskhallow Mantle, Wizardweave Robe, Astralaan Belt, Black Mageweave Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Grand Magister’s Staff of Torrents, Golden Filigreed Shirt, Tabard of the Shattered Sun
After the Scryers had joined with the Aldor to reclaim the BlackTemple of Karabor, a holy site for the Draenei, Kaelydia was glad to see the Aldor joining with the Scryers to reclaim that most holy of sites for the Sin’dorei, the Sunwell.

62) Scryer Luminary

Elegant Mantle, Black Ash Robe, Serenity Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Nimboya’s Mystical Staff*, Scryers Tabard
Following the destruction of Eversong Woods, Silvermoon City, and the Sunwell by Arthas Menethil, and the rejection of the elves by Garithos of Stormwind, it seemed to Kaelydia a good idea to follow Prince Kael’thas and his new allies, Illidan Stormrage and Lady Vashj, to Outland. When Kaelydia observed the devastation of Farahlon caused by the construction and ignition of the manaforges, however, she began to doubt the Prince’s plan for providing his suffering people with the supply of mana they needed. She was not alone in these doubts, of course, and when Lord Voren’thal defected to Shattrath, she was among those who went with him.

61) Dreamscale II

Starfire Tiara*, Primal Combatant’s Amice of Prowess, Dreamscale Inlaid Vestments, Primal Combatant’s Cord of Prowess, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Infernoweave Boots, Rubellite Staff of Intuition
A variation on an outfit I originally designed for my Priest. Given its red and gold color scheme, Kaelydia thought that her vibrant red hair and golden eyes would look good in it.

Having had the good fortune to obtain a Lovely Black Dress, I made an outfit with it for my Void Elf.

Little Black Dress

Forever-Lovely Rose, Lovely Black Dress, Stonecloth Britches, Silver-Thread Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Clear Crystal Rod*/Diamond Tipped Cane

Then I got to thinking about how there are three other colors of the Lovely Dress, and three other Elf races, and these outfits practically made themselves:

Lady in Red

Forever-Lovely Rose, Ferocious Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Lovely Red Dress, Stonecloth Britches, Night Dreamer Handwraps + Nightvale Wristwraps, Boots of the Tempest, The Sunbreaker, Penelope’s Rose*
Meet Kaelydia, a new alter-ego whose story I might get around to telling one of these days.

Arcwine

Ternary Mantle, Lovely Blue Dress, Royal Trousers, Gloves of the Infernal Nocturnal, Shimmering Geta, Staff of Haunted Memory
Koralythria is too young and not of a high enough social class in Suramar City to have the glowing tattoos permanently, but she went and got a temporary set for this special occasion.

Moonshimmer

Orchid Amice*, Lovely Purple Dress, Stonecloth Britches, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Kurkenstoks, Mok’Morokk’s Beat Stick
Imagine the original Ashenvale music playing…
