I like everything in this set except the chestpiece and leggings. So when I get it, I’ll wear it with some alternate chestpiece and leggings swapped in.

One of these months/years, I’ll manage to get my Highmountain Tauren Druid, Void Elf Mage, and Blood Elf Mage leveled and get their Heritage Armors, too.

As for other schtuff from the Patch 8.2 infodump today, the piece of mount equipment I am most excited about is the Barding. I can deal with falling damage, I don’t use my Waterstrider by default so I’ll still just use it when I actually want to do some serious waterwalking, but getting dazed and knocked off my mount when I’m just trying to get from here to there drives me nuts.

I finished the 8.0 part of the War Campaign. Now I need to find out what’s up with Saurfang and go run Atal’dazar so I can continue finding out what’s up with Vol’jin. When I’ve completed The Fate of Saurfang and The Shadow Hunter, I’ll do the 8.1 part of the War Campaign.

Getting to Revered with Champions of Azeroth is now the only thing I have left to do for Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder Part 1 — in the past week or two, I’ve gotten to Revered with all the other BfA factions. So when I saw a Champions of Azeroth contract on the AH for relatively cheap, I decided to get it. I think I’ll continue to use Champions of Azeroth contracts until I’m Exalted with Magni. Then I’ll do Zandalari contracts (if I’m not already Exalted with them just from Emissaries by then) so that I can do the Zandalari recruitment scenario and see Talanji’s coronation.

For someone whose playtime is as limited as mine has been this academic year, there is a wealth of BfA story content to do!

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 (*).

63) Mana-Infused Lagomorph

Brown Spring Circlet, Boulder Pads, Loch Croc Hide Vest*, Thick Qirajihide Belt, Cenarion Leggings, Gloves of the Hidden Temple, Hive Tunneler’s Boots, Staff of Radiance
The blue lining of the Brown Spring Circlet wanted other pieces that are brown with blue accents to go with it. Then her face paint and hair doodads needed to be blue, too, to match. The glowing blue markings reminded me of Suramar’s manasabers.

62) Together, We Are

Ranger Shoulders, Loch Croc Hide Vest, Bal’lal Belt, Huntsman’s Leggings, Loramus’ Gloves, Smart Shoes, Carved Ashwood Stick, Highmountain Tabard
The color scheme of this outfit — brown and green with accents of blue and red — reflects the restored unity of the Highmountain tribes.

61) Archdruid of the Dreamgrove


Dreamgrove Raiment with Unwavering Stare and Staff of the Earthmother
The Druid Order Hall set has a rather autumnal feeling to it.

When Legion was still in beta, I RP-designated mini-Kam as a Highmountain Tauren, similar to how I’d RP-designated Kaumaleia as a Taunka and Kaobeka as a Yaungol.

I wonder if I would have been as excited about the concept of Allied Races if the Highmountain Tauren hadn’t been among the first group of Allied Races to be introduced? Anyhow, I immediately made plans to race-change mini-Kam into a Highmountain Tauren after I’d recruited them.

When the Allied Races were introduced at Blizzcon 2017, I already had both the questing achievement and the reputation to be able to recruit the Highmountain Tauren. But mini-Kam hadn’t quested in Highmountain yet, and I felt that it would be odd to go through the quests in Highmountain, being treated as an outsider, if she was already a Highmountain Tauren. So I wanted to wait until I’d done the Highmountain storyline with mini-Kam to do the recruitment scenario. What with one thing and another, however, it wasn’t until yesterday that I was at last able to quest through Highmountain with mini-Kam. This afternoon, I took Kamalia Prime to do the Highmountain Tauren recruitment scenario.

I’d heard that the Highmountain Tauren recruitment scenario was longer and more involved than any of the others in the first group of four. It was, and it was awesome.

Here are my Highmountain Tauren gals:

Kamalita the Rivermane Shaman

(I am crossing my fingers that she’ll be able to use the Heritage Armor after one of the other two has earned it by leveling from the bottom up)

Kashina the Skyhorn Druid

(These horns seem like they would significantly obstruct the peripheral vision of their bearer, but they are the best shape match for the horns of the various Druid forms)

Kounaqiwa the Bloodtotem Warrior

(Some Bloodtotem did not succumb to the Legion and become Feltotem; these Bloodtotem Survivors can be found in the big tent on the outlying bluff where Ethel Waterwise lives)

I’ll make them proper portraits and add them to my Characters page sometime in the near future.
I don’t think I’ll make them separate “Things my Characters Wear” pages though; because they are the same faction as the core race Tauren, there won’t be faction-based differences in the outfits I can make for them, as there are for my Void Elves vs my Blood Elves. Kamalita’s outfits will continue to be intermingled with Kamalia’s; Kashina’s outfits will be intermingled with Kerisa’s, and Kounaqiwa’s outfits will be intermingled with Keija’s.

Yay, I finally have my Highmountain Tauren! Happy Dance Time!

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

99) Venerated of Zandalar

Pauldrons of Venerated Spirits (LFR), Stormstrike Vest, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Links of Accuracy, Isle Watcher’s Leggings, Torcali’s Grips of the Bounty, Gral Worshipper’s Waders, Tabard of the Zandalari Empire, The Fist of Ra-den/Doomhammer (Hidden appearance, 200 WQ tint)
The Troll-themed Antorus shoulders and Hidden appearances of the Elemental and Enhancement Artifact weapons were the natural choices to complement the Zandalari Empire tabard.

98) Roiling in the Deep

Mrgglurggl Spaulders & Grips, Dragonkiller Tunic, Axeclaw Belt, Legguards of Sleeting Arrows, Moccasins of Verdurous Glooms, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Sharas’dal (upgraded, first tint)
I have long wanted to pair Sharas’dal with the lookalike version of the Naga/Murloc-themed Bastion of Twilight/Blackwing Descent Hunter Tier set. Alas, there was no lookalike item for the key piece of the set, the shoulders. The Mrgglurggl set from Battle for Azeroth‘s Island Expeditions solves this problem handily.

97) On the Rim of the Sky


Headguard of Vast Destruction, Dragonrider’s Harness, Industrial Lifting Belt, Charger’s Pants, Battlebound Grips & Treads, Ironsoul
I acquired this chestpiece and designed this outfit more with future use by a Dwarf or Kul Tiran Shaman in mind than for Kamalia herself.

96) Resilience of the Dunes

Resilient Outcast’s set with Fel-Chain Spaulders, Girdle of the Chosen Dead (LFR), and Sethrak Warden’s Staff
This is the Vol’dun coloration of the Zandalar leveling mail armor.
Oddly, the Resilient Outcast’s Hauberk (chestpiece) is not a reward from any of the leveling zone questlines. Wowhead lists its source as Azerite armor caches. Fortunately, beginning in Warlords, the random drop greens that primarily exist for Enchanters to disenchant into dust have been duplicates of the leveling sets. So I just looked on the AH for the chestpiece of the random drop greens set that matches the Resilient Outcast’s set.

95) Torcalin Teal

Torcalin Chainmail with Barrage Shoulders, Fel-Chain Cinch, Reliquary Explorer’s Drape, and Grave Watcher’s Longstaff
This coloration of the Zandalar leveling mail set is obtained in Zuldazar.

94) Rivermane Rockbreaker


Whitewater set with Marksman’s Girdle, Highmountain Tabard, Rivermane War Harness, and Doomhammer
This is simply the Highmountain coloration of the Legion leveling mail set, with a plainer belt swapped in to allow the whole tabard to be seen.

93) Mulgore-Highmountain Liason

Willow Spaulders, Farseer’s Harness & Gauntlets, Lifecycle Waistguard (H), Infection Resistant Legguards, Tabard of the Highmountain Tribe, Battlehammer of the Sunwalker, Fel-Iron Shield, Highmountain War Harness
Kamalia chose this outfit, a variation on her earlier Highmountain Spirit-Guardian kit (#70), to wear to Baine’s grand feast for Mayla and the other Highmountain Tauren leaders.

92) Feathered Serpent

Totem Matriarch’s Headdress, Fel-Chain Spaulders, Willow Band Hauberk*, Vintage Duskwatch Cinch (N), Ulfgor’s Greaves of Bravery, Gauntlets of the Windreacher, Green Iron Boots, Axe of Rin’ji
This hat is super nifty because it’s a mail lookalike of an awesome cloth hat design. When Kamalia Prime picked it up from the corpse of a vignette creature in Nazmir, it didn’t fit with her current outfit very well — so mini-Kam gets to wear it instead.

91) Dazar’alor Daze

Death-Pledged Armor with Battleforge Shoulderguards, Fel-Chain Cinch, Zardax’s Tattered Drape, Mambo Hex Axe, and Loa-Binder Disc
I wasn’t initially a fan of the Zandalar mail leveing gear when I saw it in preview images, but now that I’ve seen it up close, I rather like it — as long as I swap out the helm, shoulders, and belt, that is. This coloration of the set comes from Nazmir.

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

64) Highlord of the Silver Hand


Battleplate of the Silver Hand with Lightbringer Greathelm, Fearless Gladiator’s Greatcloak of Faith, Tabard of the Lightbringer, and Truthguard (upgraded, first tint)
Karaelia reached Exalted with Suramar at last, and now she can wear the Paladin Order Hall set.

63) Silver Hand Knight

Dojani Armor with Lighthammer Pauldrons, Crazy Cenarion Cloak, Tabard of the Lightbringer, and Ardent Warhammer
The Silver Hand Knights are the default 3-vitality troops of the Paladin Order Hall. I’d upgraded them to Templars… so then I had to switch to the upgrade for the 2-vitality troops to get them back to take pictures with this kit.

62) Silver Hand Templar

Truesteel Battleplate (stage 3) with Windfire Legplates (LFR), Vicious Fur Cloak, Tabard of the Lightbringer, and Gilded Warhammer
The pants the NPCs are wearing are more like a pants version of the robe skirt from the Siege of Orgrimmar set than the actual pants of that set.

61) Silver Hand Sunwalker Keeper

Rusted Bonespike Pauldrons (25H), Ornate Battleplate of the Master, Guardian’s Scaled Belt, Jade Tiger Legguards, Fallen Lord’s Handguards (25H), Vindicator’s Scaled Greaves, Tabard of the Lightbringer, Mace of Acrid Death, Sternhorn’s Shield
These Sanctum of Light NPCs are wearing the same NPC-only coloration of the ICC Paladin tier set that is worn by Highlord Fordring himself at Icecrown Citadel. I’m not sure what the NPC pants are, though — I couldn’t find them in my Paladin’s collection, either in her already-acquired items or in her not-yet-collected items. Maybe they’re a recolor of a Warrior or Death Knight item?
