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

94) Winter’s Hope



Winterborn Regalia with Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Winterwoven Bulb, Springrain Staff
Kaurinka finally collected enough Anima to buy this lovely recolor of the Night Fae armor set, which also requires Exalted reputation with the Court of Night. Though I’ve mostly preferred to stick with the “Archdruid” title, it seems appropriate to use the “Winter’s Envoy” title with this outfit.

93) Starlit Boughs



Phantasmal Headdress, Pauldrons of Malorne, Clefthoof Hidemantle, Supple Waistguard (stage 2), Bladedancer’s Pantaloons, Reaping Gloves of Aleifir, Cenarion Boots, Starshard Edge, Growthshaper Branch, Night Courtier’s Branches
This Night Fae backpiece, which can be obtained at Honored with Marasmius, is the most unique among the Night Fae backpieces because it is the only one in this style of the seven readily available from vendors. Between them, the Wild Hunt, Marasmius, Night Fae Renown, and Court of Night sell three colors of the backpack and three colors of the bulb with butterflies, leaving only the fourth color of those styles to be obtained from other activities. For this style, it is reversed: only one color is available from a vendor, and the other three must be obtained from other activities.

92) Brokers’ Business Buddy



Corpsehide set with Empyrial Deep Crown and Honortoll Spear
This handsome coloration of the leather second-tier crafted/World Quests & Dungeons set comes, somewhat surprisingly, from Maldraxxus.
The stripes on the pants and the styling of the shoulders and belt reminded me of the Brokers, though it’s not anywhere near as exact a match as the cloth set is for the Attendants.

91) Firebird




Jewel of the Firelord, Firekin Amice Robes & Gloves, Wild Gladiator’s Belt of Prowess, Spire of Coagulated Globules (H), Blazing Wings
On my Night Elf Druid, this set from Battle for Azeroth‘s Island Expeditions was “Leyara’s Legacy” (Night Elf Druid #29).
On my Tauren Druid, it is the glory of An’she at sunset.
This also seemed like a good opportunity to formally introduce Kessina, Kerisa’s daughter, who was born at the Grove of Aessina during the first year of Cataclysm. In the timeline, Kessina is still a small child, of course — but this is what she will look like when she is an adult.

I’ve been doing quite a bit of dungeon running recently, mostly Spires of Ascension and Plaguefall because those have been the Oribos dungeons of the week and for “Defend Bastion/Maldraxxus” Callings. Having gotten to Exalted with Court of Harvesters with Kaelinda and with Wild Hunt with Kaurinka, I’m now pushing Ascended and Undying Army rep so that I can get the Gilded Prowler mount and have the Undying Army tabard in my tabard wardrobe for Kalaneia to wear with her Necrolords armor.

I’ve been seeing a lot of Shaman healers, which is making me miss healing with Kamalia. I used to be a devotee of Grid + Clique, but I haven’t installed any addons whatsoever since I began playing WoW on a new computer about a year ago. What addon(s) are considered the best for healing these days?

Seeing Tauren of other classes in other roles is making me miss my Tauren. I’ve been thinking about how my Shaman would be Night Fae and my Death Knight would be Necrolords and my Warrior and my Highmountain Tauren Druid would be Venthyr and my Hunter and Paladin and Priest and Monk would be Kyrian, so that I could get all of the Covenant armor sets that I find acceptably attractive. I’d only get the Campaign and Renown recolors of the armor sets with these characters — going after the other variations would be too much work.

Most of these characters haven’t yet leveled through Zandalar, though, and there isn’t yet a skip for the introductory Maw experience of Shadowlands. So for now, I will just have to sigh wistfully, and focus on getting my Eversong Elves through the Covenant Campaigns and into their Campaign & Renown armor sets, and hope that an intro skip gets patched in sometime down the road, and plan to bring all my Tauren through the Shadowlands during the end-of-expac lull.

Shadowlands is worth getting just for all the wonderful new customization options!
Here’s how the appearances of my Tauren characters changed.

Most of the changes are small and subtle — just eye color, or the addition of jewelry.

~*~*~

Kamalia


skin color 4; face 4; horn style 4; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 2; eye color 2; headdress 2; earrings 5; necklace 3
My very first and best beloved character; my main until midway through Battle for Azeroth. Eldest of her siblings. Recently married to a Highmountain Tauren Shaman who is one of Jale Rivermane’s sons.

~*~*~*

Kerisa (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 8; face 4; horn style 2; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 4; eye color 2; necklace 4

Second child in Kamalia’s family. Married her childhood sweetheart after the conclusion of the Icecrown Citadel campaign. Her first child, a daughter, was born during the first year of Cataclysm. Her second child, a son, was born during the first year of Battle for Azeroth.

Kaiuna (Alter-Ego)


skin color 12; face 1; horn style 8; horn color 1; foremane 3; hair 2; eye color 4; earrings 4

This character was originally a “melee Druid” to complement Kerisa being a “caster Druid”. I dismissed the alt when Leigon eliminated spec restrictions, but kept her appearance as an Alter-Ego for Feral, Guardian, and white-themed Transmogrifications. In her RP-description, she has an extremely rare curly coat allele and has long ringlets instead of the long braids.

Kaurinka (new Alter-Ego)

skin color 13; face 3; horn style 18; horn color 3; foremane 3; hair 10; eye color 5; body paint 2; paint color 6

This is the character who will be going to the Shadowlands, to avoid traumatizing Kerisa’s young family. Her name is derived from “aurinko”, a Finnish word meaning “sun/sunlight” — an appropriate name for a sun-coloured Balance Druid!

Kessina (new Alter-Ego)

skin color 3; face 4; horn style 7; horn color 2; foremane 3; hair 6; eye color 7; earrings 3

This is what Kerisa’s daughter will look like when she is all grown up. She is named after the Shrine of Aessina, where she was born. While spending some of the formative years of her childhood in the Broken Isles, she became quite enchanted by the Owlcats.

~*~*~

Ketura (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 9; face 4; horn style 1; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 3; eye color 2; necklace 4
Third child in Kamalia’s family. Takes strongly after her mother. Fascinated by Trolls and their cultures. Has collected many pets, especially cats and raptors, but continues to prefer the Mulgore Mountain Lion that was her first solo tame.

Kawneiha (Alter-Ego)


skin color 9; face 4; horn style 1; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 3; eye color 2; headdress 3; necklace 4
Mother of Kamalia, Kerisa, Ketura, Keija, Karaelia, and Kaohana; wife of Kehontah. She uses the title “Elder” and wears a Gold Wedding Band and a Flawless Diamond Solitaire.

~*~*~

Keija


skin color 6; face 4; horn style 6; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 5; eye color 1; earrings 4; necklace 2
Fourth child in Kamalia’s family. Before going out adventuring, she served for several years as a Bluffwatcher, then an Honor Guard, in Thunder Bluff to support her parents during the childhood of the twins. First of her siblings to get married (to a fellow Bluffwatcher), but still childless by choice.

~*~*~

Kregga (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 1; face 2; horn style 9; horn color 3; foremane 1; hair 7; eye color n/a
A former member of the Grimtotem tribe, she was sent with several others to infiltrate the Cult of the Damned at Scholomance. After breaking free of the Lich King’s control at the Battle of Light’s Hope, she felt betrayed by Magatha and renounced her Grimtotem origins. Kamalia provided spiritual mentorship as she struggled to regain mental and emotional stability in the first years after regaining her free will.

Kaiopeqa (Alter-Ego)


skin color 7; face 2; horn style 13; horn color 1; foremane 2; hair 1; eye color n/a; earrings 2
Originally a Warrior of the Kalimdor tribe named “Highmountain”; a secondary Warrior alt with whom I was experimenting with tanking. I dismissed that alt when Legion did away with spec limitations. After her untimely death during an early battle on the Broken Shore, she was raised as a Death Knight by Kregga to be “the Deathlord’s Understudy”.

~*~*~

Kaumaleia


skin color 15; face 1; horn style 14; horn color 3; foremane 3; hair 14; eye color n/a
Kaumaleia, otherwise known as “the Underpowered Death Knight”, primarily exists so I can have a blue and white Tauren. Occasionally, she uses the other DK-exclusive skin colors. In her RP-description, she is a Taunka of the Winterhoof tribe.

~*~*~

Karaelia


skin color 11; face 4; horn style 3; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 4; eye color 5
Elder of the twins borne late in life by Kawneiha. The difficulty of the pregnancy, birth, and infancy left a lasting psychological effect on the twins, causing them to turn toward the new teachings of the Sunwalkers and Seers when they came of age just before the Cataclysm. Being more inclined toward physical action, she chose the path of the Paladin. Did her early leveling as a tank in LFG, then switched to healing for raiding in Mists. Currently favors Protection as an open-world questing spec, but she hasn’t tanked for a group in ages.

~*~*~

Kaohana (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 10; face 4; horn style 5; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 3; eye color 7
Younger of the twins borne late in life by Kawneiha. The difficulty of the pregnancy, birth, and infancy left a lasting psychological effect on the twins, causing them to turn toward the new teachings of the Sunwalkers and Seers when they came of age just before the Cataclysm. Being more inclined toward thoughtful study, she chose the path of the Priest. Recognizing the need for balance between Light and Shadow, she considers Discipline to be her DPS spec; she occasionally switches to Holy for LFG/LFR.

Kazithra (Alter-Ego)


skin color 1; face 2; horn style 10; horn color 1; foremane 1; hair 2; eye color 3; face paint 2; earrings 2; body paint 3; paint color 2
Kazithra is Kregga’s mother; she defected from the Grimtotem tribe in the aftermath of the Grimtotem attack on Thunder Bluff following Cairne’s death in the rigged mak’gora against Garrosh Hellscream. She originally existed as a separate alt in late Mists and Warlords, which was a time when I thought that the semi-transparent Glyphed appearance of Shadowform looked really cool. Then Legion changed both the appearance of Shadowform and the lore of Shadow Priests in ways that I didn’t like. I lost interest in playing a Shadow Priest to experience the spec itself and dismissed the alt. During Legion, however, Artifact weapons restricted Transmogrification possibilities, and I discovered that sometimes I still wanted my Priest to be Shadow-specced so that I could make a dagger + off-hand Transmogrification kit.

~*~*~

Katewatha (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 2; face 1; horn style 15; horn color 1; foremane 1; hair 5; eye color 6; body paint 4; paint color 3
Kate is obsessed with all things Pandaren; although I use this hair style for her in-game, in her RP-description she uses the Pandaren “Twin Loops” hair style (Pandaren hair style #14).

Kaobeka (Alter-Ego)


skin color 7; face 1; horn style 20; horn color 3; foremane 3; hair 1; eye color 4; earrings 2; nose ring 4
This character began her existence as “Koralyra the Pet-Battling Monk”; I later renamed her “Kaobeka” as an homage anagram of Akabeko of Red Cow Rise. In her RP-description, she is a Yaungol who abandoned her clan to join the Horde.

~*~*~

Kasheena


skin color 3; face 3; hair 4; eye color 1; horn style 5; body paint 3; paint color 2

My Highmountain Tauren had to be a Druid to be able to use all the Highmountain versions of the Druid shapeshift forms!

~*~*~

Kehontah


skin color 6; face 5; horn style 2; horn color 2; foremane 1; hair 10; facial hair 10; eye color 5
Father of Kamalia and her sisters; husband of Kawneiha. He uses the title “Elder” and wears a Gold Wedding Band.

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

90) Spring’s Envoy


Crown of Boundless Courage, Sprite Darter’s Flutterers, Elegant Dress, Staff of the Verdant Circle
Kaurinka has reached Renown 40 and earned the Winter’s Envoy title, but she’d rather be Spring’s Envoy.
She is still wearing her warpaint; she’s just changed the color scheme to white & yellow because that looked better with the dress.
If I had the Spirit Tender’s Bulb, I’d use it with this ensemble —

— but it’s a drop from the Queen’s Conservatory, which I haven’t even started yet.

89) Pyrrhuloxia



Rhinestone Sunglasses, Nightcloaked Spaulders, Nightcloaked Chestpiece, Replica Wildheart Belt, Depraved Darkblade’s Breeches, Bard’s Gloves & Boots, Wild Combatant’s Battle Staff
Revendreth leveling (and its equivalent BOE set) provided some nice new magenta pieces in leather.
Kaiuna thought she’d look better in this set than Kaurinka would, so here she is.
I named this outfit for a bird in the cardinal family which has similar coloration. The location I chose for the photoshoot is similar to that of the real world habitat of this bird.

88) Rite of Passage



Ferocious Gladiator’s Dragonhide Helm, Ceremonial Leather Harness, Fallen Runelord’s Belt, Ceremonial Leather Loincloth, Hozen Warrior Spear
A Tauren-style iteration of the barely-clothed tribal warrior concept.

87) RAWR



Thunderlord Chestguard, Wild Gladiator’s Belt of Prowess, Thunderlord Leggings, Raging-Earth Wranglers, Treads of the Den Mother, Highmountain Hammer
I collected the Thunderlord set during Warlords mostly for the sake of having all the Garrison sets. Kaurinka saw it and thought it would be perfect for showing off her warpaint even better.

86) Fading Forest

Antlers of Malorne, Runetender Shoulderguards & Pants, Swindler’s Vest, Misthide Belt, Cenarion Bracers, Starshroud Boots, Kihrawr’s Scratching Post
Kaurinka was getting a little bored of wearing the Runetender set as-is, and she’d been wanting to show off her warpaint.

85) Runetender

Runetender set with Duskwarder Censor
This is the Ardenweald recolor of the second-tier crafted/World Quest & Dungeon set from Shadowlands.

84) Desolate Leather Variations



Desolate Leather (crafted), Selfless Bearer’s (Bastion), Deceitful Agent’s (Maldraxxus), Starshroud (Ardenweald), Nightcloaked (Revendreth)
These are the first-tier crafted and leveling zone quest reward sets from Shadowlands.

83) Eternal Cycle of the Moon



Unwavering Stare, Supple Shoulderguards Waistguard & Gloves (stage 2), Eternal Traveler Raiment, Intensity
I tried some more iconically Druidy shoulders, but they all bumped into Kaurinka’s horns too much. The more streamlined profile of these shoulders just looked better.

82) Sprite Darter’s Friend



Sprite Darter’s Wings with Sparkburnt Welder’s Cloak and G’Hanir (default, 3rd tint)
I’d been contemplating what Kaurinka should wear to make her Sunday on the Promenade debut. Then this set came out and was the obvious choice.

81) Lightning Striking Twice

Warmongering Gladiator’s Helm Chestguard & Leggings, Mantle of Wicked Revenge, Windflame Girdle (N), Gloves of the Hidden Temple, Hive Tunneler’s Boots, Twin Strike Polearm (M)
I acquired this polearm, my favorite of all the Sethrak-themed weapons, from a Dungeon World Quest some time ago but hadn’t thought of a good outfit concept to use with it. When I obtained this belt, it immediately suggested a combo with the Sethrak polearm.

The new Tauren female customization options that will be coming in Shadowlands just keep getting better!

The latest Wowhead preview shows bangs, earrings, eye colors, hairstyles, headdresses, horns, necklaces, and nose piercings.

There are eight eye colors and I just know that somehow or other, between my regular characters and alter-egos, I’ll have to find a way to use them all.

I’m kind of meh on the curly new horn styles. I like the really long new horn styles, though; Kaurinka will probably choose one of them instead of the current style that I was considering using for her, and Kaobeka will probably choose the other new longhorn style to be more Yaungol-like than her current style.

I want to use the feathered earrings, but I haven’t figured out who wants them yet. Although I’m glad that the other earring styles exist, I don’t have any immediate ideas for characters who’d want to wear them — but who knows, maybe over the coming months someone will ask for one of them. As for the nose piercings, probably not.

The headdresses are cute; I like the feathers version better than the tuft of fur version. I can see Kamalia adopting that as a permanent (or at least semi-permanent, depending on what hat I want with her current outfit) change to her look.

The necklaces are nifty. The first style might be fun for Keija, the second style I think will definitely be a permanent addition to Kamalia’s look, and the third style would be fitting for Ketura.

Looking at the bangs options, Kaumaleia (aka the Underpowered Death Knight) has already asked to have the parted bangs with the flower. Kerisa/Kaiuna/Kaurinka will probably go for the option that just adds a flower to the current bangs look. I’m not a fan of the option that covers the eyes.

The new hairstyles, though — that’s what I’m really excited about in this update! I like the two braids on the side. I think the two braids joined under the chin looks silly. Kregga currently has the “maned” style (no hair on the side of the face); she might switch to the new style that has loose hair on the side of the face. I love the single braid on one side or the other, with or without flowers. The single braid without flowers might become Kaumaleia’s default look. I also really like the double braids with flowers — that might be Kaurinka’s signature style — and the medallion with feathers. Kamalia and Keija will probably want to try that one out for awhile.

… Dang, I’m going to have to re-make all of the character portraits for my Characters page, won’t I? 😛

Palomino Tauren!

I had been feeling sad that there hadn’t been any new Tauren customizations previewed yet. The newest version of the Shadowlands alpha has them in, though — women, men — and I’ve got to say, palomino Tauren are lookin’ goooood!
I’m glad to see that it looks like face warpaint and arm/chest warpaint are separate options, rather than being a single customization like they are for Highmountain Tauren. Although I’m not that excited about any of the face designs, I do like the second and third arm/chest designs. I like the red-and-blue, turquoise, and gold colors.
Now I’m beginning to dream up an Alter Ego for Kerisa — so that Kerisa herself can stay home with her two little ones and not go to Shadowlands, and I don’t have to stress myself about getting Kasheena leveled in time, either — who is palomino with red-and-blue arm/chest warpaint…

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 (*).

74) Serene Glow

Demonic Gladiator’s Ironskin Spaulders, Pamela’s Muuscat Wrap, Thick Qirajihide Belt, Grips of Slicing Electricity (LFR), Torch of Dawn
After my Druid acquired this robe from a lucky uncontested bid on the Black Market Auction House, of course my Monk had to wear it!

73) Kul Tiran Swashbuckler

Blue Tricorne Hat, Extravagant Epaulettes, Vest of the Azerothian Champion, Fairweather Belt, Flame-Seared Leggings, Antiquity Handler’s Gloves, Ooey-Gooey Galoshes, Gol Osigr Handblade
This is mostly one of the variations of the leather Kul Tiras dungeon set, with a few substitutions.

72) Russet Dragon

Orgrimmar Spaulders, Sunsoaked Vest, Cruel Gladiator’s Ironskin Belt Gloves & Slippers, Hemet’s Leather Legguards, Improvisational Historian’s Cloak, Fu Zan (PvP, default tint)
I thought that these Mists leveling items would coordinate nicely with these Legion PvP items; the Orgrimmar shoulders were a pleasant surprise.

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 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 (*).

80) Kul Tiras Plate




Harbormaster (Tiragarde Sound)/Shoalbreach (Stormsong Valley)/Bleakweald (Drustvar) armor with Coldscale Saber and Gnarlwood Barrier
The handsome Kul Tiras plate armor sets have these names when they are rewarded from World Quests, which is probably the best way for a Horde player to acquire them. I’ve put the version that I think is the most handsome, and that I wanted to continue wearing after the photoshoot, last.
I think this is some of the nicest plate armor in the game. At first, I didn’t quite understand the early Battle for Azeroth information and thought that this armor would only be available to Alliance characters. I was greatly relieved to learn that BOE greens versions existed, and even more so that the World Quest versions were also available to Horde characters!

79) Frozen Light

Salt-Scorched Shoulderguard, Field Plate Armor, Shellbuckle Girdle, Legguards of the Emerald Brood (H), Flash Freeze Gauntlets (H), Fogtide Warboots, Sunsoul Sword, Platinum Shield of the Valorous
This outfit is adapted from an outfit I made some time ago for the Underpowered Death Knight (#40), but brings in some of the beautiful Kul Tiras plate pieces from Battle for Azeroth.

78) Dunecrawler

Exiled Veteran’s set with Nazmani Warplate helm & shoulders, hidden belt, Pennant Cloak, and Skycaller’s Ceremonial Mace
The Zandalar quest plate sets have the shoulders and helm in a contrasting color to the rest of the items, so one has to mix-and-match sets to get a monochromatic color scheme. This combination, which is not quite so monochromatic as the other possibilities, uses the Nazmir helm & shoulders with the rest of the set from Vol’dun.

77) Malachite

Direbone Frill set with Exiled Veteran’s helm & shoulders, Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Clasp of Meditation, Pterroleather Cloak, and Sethrak Warden’s Scimitar
The Zandalar quest plate sets have the shoulders and helm in a contrasting color to the rest of the items, so one has to mix-and-match sets to get a monochromatic color scheme. This combination uses the Vol’dun helm & shoulders with the rest of the set from Zuldazar.

76) Blood Champion of Zandalar

Rastari helm & shoulders, Nazmani Warplate chest legs gloves boots, Abandoned Zandalari Bucklebreaker, Fallen Spider Handaxe, Loa-Bound Defender, Crimson Silk Cloak
The Zandalar quest plate sets have the shoulders and helm in a contrasting color to the rest of the items, so one has to mix-and-match sets to get a monochromatic color scheme. This combination uses the Zuldazar helm & shoulders with the rest of the set from Nazmir.

75) Crashing Waves

Bloodcraver Pauldrons, Wavecrash Chestplate & Greaves, Vim’s Scalecrusher Girdle, Bleakweald Handguards & Stompers, Flanged Mace, Dockyard Targe
The Wavecrash set is the Nazjatar zone drop recolor of the Benthic Zanj’ir Scaleguard set. I particularly like the soft blue color of the chestpiece.

74) Brine & Barnacles

Zanj’ir Scaleguard set with Zanj’ir Scaleguard Greatcloak, Reactive Waraxe and Deepwarden Redoubt
This is the Benthic plate armor set from Nazjatar. For some reason, wearing it is making Karaelia feel rather… pickled.

73) Brite Knight

Version 1: Conqueror’s Helmet, Pristine Lightforge Spaulders, Emerald Breastplate, Truesteel Waistguard (stage 3), Murkblood Avenger’s Legplates, Swamp Gas Gauntlets, Lavawalker Greaves, Jeweled Coronation Sword, Zom’s Crackling Bulwark

Version 2: Conqueror’s Helmet, Mantle of the Desert Crusade, Murkblood Avenger’s Chestplate, Truesteel Waistguard (stage 3), Brackwater Leggings, Swamp Gas Gauntlets, Conqueror’s Greaves, Jeweled Coronation Sword, Zom’s Crackling Bulwark

Version 3: Talonguard Helmet, Pristine Lightforge Spaulders, Embossed Plate Armor, Thorium Belt, Murkblood Avenger’s Legplates, Bloodforged Gauntlets, Enticing Sabatons, Eternally Folded Blade, Crest of Supremacy

Version 4: Talonguard Helmet, Imperial Plate Shoulders, Murkblood Avenger’s Chestplate, Thorium Belt, Embossed Plate Leggings, Bloodforged Gauntlets, Conqueror’s Greaves, Eternally Folded Blade, Crest of Supremacy
This was, of course, what had to come next. Rainbow Brite Plate has been a staple of Mogging since Transmogrification was introduced, but I hadn’t personally done it yet. As you can see, I tried a series of variations; Version 4 was what I actually wore out and about in the world for awhile.

72) White Knight

Overlord’s set with Steel Plate Helm, Pauldrons of the Argent Sentinel, Gleaming Celestial Waistguard, Gladiator’s Salvation, Highlord’s Favor
Karaelia had had enough of being dark; it was time to let her bright true nature shine again.

71) Dark Knight

Blackwing Helm, Obsidian Stone Spaulders, Breastplate of Vaulted Skies, Bogslayer Belt, Direwing Legguards, Boneclenched Gauntlets, Ribsteel Footguards, Stylish Black Shirt, Mass of McGowan, Infiltrator’s Shield
Don’t worry, it only *looks* like Karaelia has gone over to the Dark Side…

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

64) Courageous Flutterer

Crown of Boundless Courage, Sprite Darter’s Flutterers, Burnished Breastplate of Might, Sprite Darter’s Sash, Burnished Legplates of Might, Gauntlets of Annihilation, Boots of Courage Unending, Draenic Ribsmasher
Kaumaleia always wants to look pretty, so of course she had to do something with the Sprite Darter’s Flutterers at once!

63) High Society Dress Armor

High Society Top Hat, Noble Plate Pauldrons, Enchanted Thorium Breastplate, Belt of the Soul Saver, Felforged Legplates, Fel Commander’s Vambraces + Hidden Gloves, Jade Tiger Warboots, Tuxedo Shirt, Guardian Blade
Several months ago, I found a High Society Top Hat for a reasonably decent price. I couldn’t decide which character to give it to, so my bank alt just held onto it. A week or so ago, I found a Duskhaven Top Hat for a reasonably decent price. Now that my cloth-wearing characters have access to a Moggable top hat, the bank alt got to keep the RP-Clothes item.

62) Pink Petals II



Commander’s set with Crown of Boundless Courage, Blood-Stained Pauldrons, Bloodscale Belt, Cloak of the Hollow/Snowfall Shawl, and The Hammer of Destiny
The pink flower crown prompted me to revisit this outfit concept (Underpowered Death Knight #31), which would be appropriate for either Noblegarden or Love is in the Air. I’m particularly fond of how this particular green cloak complements both the green Tauren DK fur color and the red tones in the armor.
Eventually, Kaumaleia reverted to her “natural” blue & white, and the green cloak didn’t work anymore. Fortunately, there is another cloak in the same style with colors that do.

61) Rose Knight



Crown of Boundless Courage, Blood-Stained Pauldrons, Darkrune Breastplate, Bloodscale Girdle Gauntlets & Sabatons, Direwing Legguards, Master Builder’s Shirt, Obsidium Executioner
Kaumaleia wanted to wear the pink flowers, and this is what she thought would go best with them.

62) Herald of Shadows

Frostforged Greathelm, Razorfin Shoulderguards, Breastplate of Vaulted Skies, Shellbuckle Girdle, Acherus Knight’s Legplates, Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Dreadplate Gauntlets, Runescribed Blade
Now what this set needs as a finishing touch is the dark version of the Kyrian wings…
It proved much easier than I anticipated to make for Kregga a kit using these shoulders that is very different from the one I had made for Kandrista (see Blood Elf Death Knight #13). Something I particularly like about this kit is how the diamond pattern on the shoulders is echoed by the diamond pattern on these Mists crafted PvP gloves.

61) Grim Totem

Reaver Epaulets, Drakescale Breastplate, Foundry-Fired Plate Girdle, Direwing Legguards, Boneclenched Gauntlets, Ribsteel Footguards, Ancestral Chieftain’s Totem, Warmongering Combatant’s Slicer
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)
