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

71) Hot Feet/Cold Feet



Fire: Jewel of the Firelord, Firelord’s Mantle (H), Master’s Vest, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Tabard of Summer Flames, Demonic Combatant’s Silk Handguards + Bracers of the Bronze Flight (H), Embereye Belt, Lava-Starched Britches, Searing Stompers, Wild Combatant’s Energy Staff (H)



Frost: Crown of Eternal Winter, Firelord’s Mantle (N), Master’s Vest, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Tabard of Summer Skies, Demonic Combatant’s Silk Handguards + Bracers of the Bronze Flight (N), Frostwind Cord, Lava-Starched Britches, Freezing Footguards, Wild Combatant’s Energy Staff (A)
I bought these shoes from Trial of Style pretty much just so I could use them for this outfit concept. Maybe I’ll think of some other uses later. The brightly colored soles showing while moving is neat.
Though none of the items in this pair of outfits are actually holiday-locked, Midsummer Fire Festival just seemed like the right time to make them.

It’s almost the end of June, Dragonflight is not yet in open beta, and Blizzard is already announcing that it will launch by the end of the year?

With that announcement, the pre-orders are open, of course.
So far, I’ve gotten the second-tier version of three expansions: Warlords of Draenor for the Dread Raven (fancier Anzu) mount, Battle for Azeroth for the Gilded Ravasaur mount, and Shadowlands for the Eternal Traveler Transmogrification set. I’ve been quite happy with those purchases.
The only thing I really want out of the second-tier version for Dragonflight is the bundled level 60 Boost, to use for my Tauren Mage — though let’s be honest: I’m probably going to make that character, Boost her, and then just faff around with Mogging her while continuing to actively play my Blood Elf and Void Elf Mages as co-mains.
The Mog stuff is in the third-tier version. The Diadem of the Spellkeeper headpiece just isn’t my style. I rather like the Dragon Wings backpiece Mog, especially since it comes in all five Classic dragonflight colours by default. I’m already imagining a revisit of the “Dragon Princess” series I did with my Blood Elf Priest using those wings.
If I got the third-tier version of Dragonflight, I’d essentially be paying $20 for the level 60 Boost and $20 for the Dragon Wings… I think that’s acceptable — I’ve been satisified with the $20 I spent for the Celestial Observer’s ensemble.
I don’t plan to make that purchase, however, until after I’ve 1) gotten my Fall classes ready to go, 2) done the Korthia Campaign, and 3) done the Zereth Mortis Campaign.

Now there’s a sentence I never thought I’d write!
With Mages and Rogues becoming available to Tauren in Dragonflight, that leaves only Warlocks and Demon Hunters as Classes unavailable to Tauren.
I’m cool with Demon Hunters remaining exclusive to Night Elves and Blood Elves.
But there’s precedent for Highmountain Tauren becoming Warlocks, and I can imagine a “reformed” one wanting to rejoin the herd, so to speak…
Destruction is my favorite Warlock spec, but a Highmountain Tauren Demonology Warlock surrounded by a flock of Wild Imps would look pretty awesome.
And if they could have that fel-green hand, hoof, and horn-glow that male Feltotem NPCs have as a Class-specific toggle option (kinda like the Nightborne hand-glow toggle) — and hey, while we’re thinking about that, how about a fel-green hand-glow as a Class-specific toggle option for all Warlocks, hmm? — that would be fabulous!
Now I’m thinking about all the Warlock-wannabe Mogs I’m going to want to make for my Highmountain Tauren Mage (who is going to have to be Fire)…

A new interview with Brian Holinka dropped the tidbit (recapped here by Wowhead and here by Blizzard Watch) that starting in 10.0, all races will be allowed to be Priests, Mages, and Rogues. I am so excited!
I have been arguing ever since Cataclysm that if Tauren Druids could develop into Priests and Paladins, then Tauren Shamans should be likewise allowed to develop into Mages.
My Blood Elf Mage runs Fire, my Void Elf Mage runs Frost, and my Human Mage runs Arcane… but I never got my Human Mage out to Shadowlands, in part because I could never quite decide which Covenant would be the best fit to be her “home” Covenant. Awhile ago, I started imagining that if Tauren could just be allowed to be Mages, I could have a Blood Elf Fire Mage, a Void Elf Arcane Mage, and a Tauren Frost Mage…
Now the question is, should she be Mulgore Tauren or Highmountain Tauren? Well, actually, I’ll probably create one of each, because that’s just the way I roll. And she’ll probably end up being Boosted. I’ll want to have her in the Dragon Isles alongside Kaelinda, Kaelyla, Kamalia, and Kerisa. Furthermore, given how long it’s been taking me to get my Highmountain Tauren Druid leveled the conventional way so as to earn that Heritage Armor, I am just not into the leveling lowbie alts game these days.
As for Rogues, I think I see a Race Change coming my Rogue’s way…

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 (*).

140) Hot Feet/Cold Feet



Fire: Jewel of the Firelord, Firelord’s Mantle (H), Master’s Vest, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Tabard of Summer Flames, Demonic Combatant’s Silk Handguards + Bracers of the Bronze Flight (H), Embereye Belt, Lava-Starched Britches, Searing Stompers, Wild Combatant’s Energy Staff (H)



Frost: Crown of Eternal Winter, Firelord’s Mantle (N), Master’s Vest, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Tabard of Summer Skies, Demonic Combatant’s Silk Handguards + Bracers of the Bronze Flight (N), Frostwind Cord, Lava-Starched Britches, Freezing Footguards, Wild Combatant’s Energy Staff (A)
I bought these shoes from Trial of Style pretty much just so I could use them for this outfit concept. Maybe I’ll think of some other uses later. The brightly colored soles showing while moving is neat.
Though none of the items in this pair of outfits are actually holiday-locked, Midsummer Fire Festival just seemed like the right time to make them.

139) Faith & Fortune II




Crown of Everlasting Fortune/Crown of the Righteous, Lightning Infused Mantle, Selfless Wings of the Ascended, Robe of Faith, Belt of Faith, Selfless Watcher’s Warboots, Soul Releaser/Greatstaff of Righteousness
On my third try of actively watching and bidding on a BMAH auction for a Belt of Faith, I finally managed to outlast and outbid the competition.
See also (Tauren) Priest #89/Blood Elf Priest #12.

138) Sin’dorei Schism





Cowl of the Grand Engineer, Mantle of the Elven Kings, Royal Cloak of the Sunstriders, Vestments of the Sea-Witch, Gauntlets of the Sun King, Veteran’s Silk Belt, Infernoweave Boots, Crystalheart Pulse-Staff
With previews from the PTR indicating that Salandria will be a featured character in a Patch 9.2.5 storyline, I felt like Kaelinda ought to go revisit Salandria’s Children’s Week story. So with a retro look to match the retro timeframe of the event, off she went. Apparently, I hadn’t actually ever done Children’s Week with Kaelinda before, because she got the “Aw, Isn’t It Cute?” Achievement when she turned in the quest to return Salandria to the orphanage. So I’m very glad that I did it now!
This set is a recolor of the Serpentshrine Cavern/Tempest Keep Mage Tier set; I think its colors look more Blood-Elfy than the actual Tier set, and the item names are certainly very Blood-Elfy — hence the name I gave the outfit.

137) Pure Moods

Cassandra’s Grace, Vicious Embersilk Shoulders, Drape of Twisted Loyalties, Aspiring Aspirant’s Robes, Gloves of Unfailing Faith, Belt of Divine Inspiration, Master’s Boots, Giorgio’s Caduceus of Pure Moods (LFR)
Between the golden feathers, the ball that is almost the same color as Bastion Anima, and the RP quality of the name, this staff was just what this outfit needed.

136) Icy Intent




Crown of Everlasting Fortune/Crown of Eternal Winter, Firewool Shoulderpads, Drape of Icy Intent, Fur Covered Robe, Cerulean Filigreed Shirt, Celestial Bindings, Willow Boots, Rod of the Broken Temple
This outfit was again built around the cloak. I am rather fond of the brown and blue color combination. The brown strap and blue feathers of these Pandaria shoulders made them a fantastic find for the kit, and I like how the beige interior of the shoulders lightens up the overall ensemble.

135) White Rabbit

Spring Circlet, Destroyer’s Mantle, White Linen Robe/Acolyte’s Robe*, Suspicious Slippers, Telmor Soupriest Staff
Hippity Hop.
The Acolyte’s Robe is the original level 1 Draenei Priest chestpiece.
See also Void Elf Mage #64.

134) Spring Violets

Court Inquisitor’s Hood, Replica Sorcerer’s Mantle, Cloak of the Makers, Disciple’s Robe, Green Holiday Shirt, Silent Slippers of Meditation, Terokk’s Shadowstaff
I think this cloak design is wonderful, but somehow I had to set out to design an outfit around the cloak itself as the signature item, rather than choosing it as the cloak for an outfit designed around some other key item, to actually use it at last.

133) Mooncloth Pennant


Mountainsage Hood/Crown of the Champion, Primal Mooncloth Shoulders, Pennant Cloak, Primal Mooncloth Robe, Rhie-Ay’s Clutching Gauntlets, Primal Mooncloth Belt/Corpse-Stitcher’s Cord, Sandswept Sandals, Apostle of Argus
Since I’d used the other coloration of this cloak, now it was time to use this one. Searching for coordinating robes, I was wowed by this one!

132) Fading Reality


Mag’hari Ritualist’s Horns/Dazzling Spectacles, Devouring Pellicle Shoulderpads (N), Shawl of the Old Maid, Coldtouch Phantom Wraps, Choral Slippers, Handmaiden’s Longstaff
I went to the AH to buy Zereth Mortis zone-drop BOEs for my Druid and Shaman. After I’d done that, I decided to browse around in Cloth to see what sort of Tier-lookalike BOEs might be coming out of Sepulcher of the First Ones. Sure enough, there was a BOE lookalike of the Normal-mode Warlock shoulders — and even better, it was for a price I could actually afford! And what have I been accumulating all this gold for but to spend it when interesting things show up on the AH? So I bought them. And then, of course, I needed to make an outfit with them.
I knew pretty much right away that this robe was what I wanted to use, and I was delighted to finally have a good opportunity to use this cloak. But I had such a hard time choosing a hat for this outfit! Although I ultimately chose the Warlock-T1-lookalike horns to go along with the shoulders being a Warlock-lookalike item, this ensemble also looks smashing with:

Duskwoven Turban, Katoom’s Mask, Collar of Cho’gall (a more Mage-like option), Azerothian Champion’s Crown, or Deeptide Cover.

131) Embroidered Runes of Knowledge

Nightvale Cowl, Nightsky Mantle, Obsidian-Flecked Cape, Runecloth Robe, Embroidered Shirt, Black Belt of Knowledge, Sorcerer Slippers, Lakali’s Spire of Knowledge
Poking around trying out a half-formed idea that was going in a different direction, I happened upon this robe and then the outfit went this way instead.

70) Faith & Fortune II




Crown of Everlasting Fortune/Crown of the Righteous, Lightning Infused Mantle, Selfless Wings of the Ascended, Robe of Faith, Belt of Faith, Selfless Watcher’s Warboots, Soul Releaser/Greatstaff of Righteousness
On my third try of actively watching and bidding on a BMAH auction for a Belt of Faith, I finally managed to outlast and outbid the competition.
See also (Tauren) Priest #89/Blood Elf Priest #12.

69) Lana’thel’s Gift


Sanctified Bloodmage Shoulderpads 25H/25N-10H, Mantle of Crimson Blades/Mantle of Burnished Blades, Sanctified Bloodmage Robe 25H/25N-10H, Court Inquisitor’s Handwraps/Sinful Inquisitor’s Handwraps, Eternal Traveler’s Treads/Slippers of the Forgotten Heretic, Dying Light/Quel’delar, Lens of the Mind + Anima-Infused Muck
The “Dark Ranger” customization is also excellent for San’layn cosplay — though the actual Darkfallen Archmage NPCs in the Blood wing of ICC who wear the 25H version of the ICC Mage Tier set have blue DK/Domination-magic eyes, not blood red eyes. I chose Dying Light for this version of the set because I remembered that it dropped in ICC — and when I looked it up on Wowhead while assembling this item list, I found that it drops from Lana’thel, making the name I chose for the ensemble even more appropriate!
Because Void Elves have a hair color that is a near match, I show as a variation the 25N-10H version of the set, which uses the same color scheme as Blood Queen Lana’thel herself. I chose Quel’delar because of Lana’thel’s role in that story. Alas, I haven’t actually got the Mantle of Burnished Blades because I haven’t yet begun doing Venthyr Travel Network Broken Mirrors.

68) All My Sins II


Sinful Inquisitor’s Vestments with Sinfall Venthyr Hood & Slippers, Soulbreaker’s Ebony Mantle, Silver-Thread Sash, Kael’s Dark Sinstone Chain, and Damnation
With the shortest ear length option, the “Dark Ranger” customization for Blood, Void, and Night Elves introduced in Patch 9.2.5 is perfect for Venthyr cosplay! This outfit is a variation on an outfit I originally made for my Warlock (#78).

67) Violet Ice

Shoulderpads of Twisted Fate (H), Drape of the Violet Tower, Frostweave Tunic, Soulguard Girdle, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Eelskin Flippers, Ebonchill (upgraded, 3rd tint)
I wanted to make an outfit with this chestpiece so that I would have done something with all four colors that this style comes in. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do, though, until I thought of pairing it with this kilt. I liked how the black in this cloak coordinated with the black in the chestpiece.

66) Fangs in the Shadow Keep

Sinfall Venthyr Hood, Sinful Inquisitor’s Mantle, Shroud of the Penitent, Robes of Arugal, Soulbreaker’s Ebony Handwraps, Sinful Inquisitor’s Sash, Master’s Boots, Void-Warped Oshu’gun Staff
I wanted to try this belt with this robe, so here we are.

65) Primus’s Master Conjurer





Onyx Glare-Reducers, Mantle of the Skyterror (LFR), Osteowings of the Necrolords, Black Mageweave Vest/Divine Fury Raiment (LFR), Master Builder’s Shirt, Prime Conjurer’s Gloves, Prime Conjurer’s Cinch, Legwraps of the Master Conjurer, Prime Conjurer’s Slippers, Staff of Deserved Tranquility/Staff of Earned Tranquility
These are all the pieces I wanted out of the Prime Conjurer’s set (Necrolords 9.0 Renown), so then I had to figure out what to do with them. Any future uses of these items will most likely be for Hallow’s End-themed outfits.
I never thought I’d use the shoulders and robe from the Battle of Dazar’alor set (which I picked up while trying for the crown from Opulence), but whaddayaknow, they work really well with the Necrolords pieces.

64) Blue Rabbit

Blue Spring Circlet, Pauldrons of Arcane Rage, White Linen Robe/Recruit’s Robe*, Sprite Darter’s Sash, Slippers of the Twilight Prophet, Auchenai Staff
The robe + sash combo was the spark of this outfit.
The Recruit’s Robe is the original level 1 Draenei Mage chestpiece.
See also Blood Elf Mage #135.

63) Zen Trial Style


Beige: Contender’s Satin Amice, Sunset Cloak, Growing Robe, Amaranthine Cord, Initiate’s Necromantle Slippers, Staff of the Hidden Master


Pink: Deadly Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Dusklight Drape, Silkwood Robe, Silkwood Cord, Initiate’s Necromantle Slippers, Rain Poppy Staff


Blue: Nayeli Regalia with Waterfall Drape and Plundered Waterbearer’s Staff
Trial of Style was up, and there were new prizes! Kaelyla was the one who already had some Trial of Style tokens in her bags, so off she went. The first two times I did it, the theme was “Zen”. I did the beige outfit for the first one and it took second place; I did the pink outfit for the second one and it didn’t place. The third time, the theme was “Dark and Deadly”, but I did the blue outfit anyway just because I wanted to use the third coloration of this robe, and of course it didn’t place. But that didn’t matter; I got plenty of tokens to purchase all six pairs of new shoes.

62) Vapors of Victory


Initiate’s Necromantle Shoulders Drape & Slippers, Felfume Robes, Handguards of Defiled Worlds, Sly Mojo Sash, Aluneth (PvP, 1st tint)
The shoulders and robe combo was the inspiration for this kit. Although I looked at several other purple staves, the PvP appearance of Aluneth just felt right for a Maldraxxus Mage.
If you like hoods, this looks great with the Navigator’s Crown, Shadowmoon Cowl, or Replica Dreadmist Mask.


The last, in combination with the purple tint of Scepter of Sargeras, would make this outfit perfect for a Maldraxxus Warlock.
In the beginning of planning out how to proceed through the 9.0 Covenant Campaigns, I was going to do Kyrian with Keliora the Priest and Necrolords with Kalaneia the Warlock. Then 9.1.5 came along and made Covenant-swapping a whole lot more convenient, and I decided to narrow my bandwidth and do Kyrian with Kaelyra the alter-ego of Kaelyla and Necrolords with Kateleina the alter-ego of Kaelinda. But I didn’t get around to doing the Covenant Campaigns while those characters were in those Covenants. Then when Kaelinda and Kaelyla were in their final covenants — having swapped places so now Kaelinda was in Kyrian and Kaelyla was in Necrolords — a Patch 9.2 hotfix greatly increased the amount of Renown awarded from doing the 9.0 Covenant Campaigns. With Void Elves having access to almost all of the same natural skin tones and hair colors as Blood Elves, however, there’s considerable potential to blur which toon (character file on the server) can express which character appearance identity…. So here we have Kateleina now as an alter-ego of Kaelyla, ready to skip a big chunk of Renown-grinding via Callings and just go do that 9.0 Necrolords Campaign already. The hairstyle, earrings, and eye color (because Blood Elves don’t have violet and Void Elves don’t have green) give away which version of Elf is the base model for the character.

61) Celestial Cyan



Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Faewoven Amice, Celestial Observer’s Starshroud, Celestial Tunic, Tabard of the Wild Hunt, Celestial Bindings, Faewoven Sash, Celestial Observer’s Leggings/Celestial Kilt, Celestial Observer’s Astral Walkers, Sentinel’s Branch
The glowing cyan of the Celestial Observer’s shoes reminded me of the turquoise of the Classic Celestial set.

I’m just not feeling the Renown grind this week. I look at the base zone WQs — what can I do for Anima? what can I do to complete Callings? — and I don’t feel like going out and doing them.

I want to go to Zereth Mortis. I want to explore and scout the place out for pretty locations for Mog photoshoots. I want to do the 9.2 Campaign. I want to get whatever the most easily-obtained coloration of the zone set is. I want to do whichever category of Cipher of the First Ones research it is that gives buffs for world activities, and whichever one opens up the Zereth Mortis puzzle minigames — I enjoyed the puzzle minigames in Legion and Battle for Azeroth — and ignore all the other categories.

But I haven’t yet gotten the breadcrumb quest to even start Zereth Mortis. I think it’s because I’m currently in Covenants for which I haven’t completed the 9.0 Campaigns and because I haven’t done the opening chapters of the 9.1 Campaign. I should go do the opening chapters of the 9.1 Campaign because I’m getting tired of being ground-bound; it would be nice to be able to fly again. And I just read on Wowhead that there’s been a hotfix that “Each of the four original Covenant campaign questlines now reward a total of 20 additional Renown.” So I should do the Kyrian Campaign with Kaelinda and the Necrolords Campaign with Kaelyla, because those are the Covenants that they aren’t maxxed out in Renown already with. Which is all scrambled up from my original plans, but at this point, eh, whatever….

The Zereth Mortis zone set reminds me of the Vulpera aesthetic, so I tried it out on Khariba, and sure enough, it looks super cute on her:

Choral set with Shadowmoon Cowl and Mok’Morokk’s Beat Stick

Why is it that the LFR coloration of raid sets always seems to be the green one?

They all have silly hats; the Warlock hat is thankfully not offensive anymore, but is rather the silliest of the lot. The Warlock shoulders, robe, and belt are the most interesting. The other two robes are handsome enough, I guess, but feel… plain, somehow. Still, if I can get Kaelinda and Kaelyla’s iLevels up enough, I might eventually go do Sepulcher of the First Ones LFR. Fortunately for me as a Mage, the Priest robe, Warlock shoulders, Warlock robe, and Warlock belt all have lookalike pieces– but the Mage robe does not have a lookalike piece.

~*~*~

Even though I don’t intend to do anything with her in the Shadowlands for a long time yet, I brought Karaelia out to Bastion for the sake of having a character of every armor class positioned to prep for 10.0 — and wherever Karaelia goes, her twin Kaohana goes, too. Both of them have activated Threads of Fate and pledged to the Kyrian.


Karaelia has been wearing her outfit since November of 2020, and Kaohana has been wearing her outfit since February of 2021! They are both rather anxious for some new clothes!

The Omnia are the cloth-wearing caster division of the Shado-Pan — their Mages and Priests. They are concerned with the activities of the Mogu on Shan’ze Dao.

I’ve posted many of these outfits before in an earlier Shado-Pan collection post; now I wanted to specifically pull out all of the cloth kits so that I could list them with my cloth “Pretty Dress Collections”.

The LFR version of Warlords of Draenor‘s Hellfire Citadel raid awarded different clothing than the Normal, Heroic, and Mythic versions. Furthermore, it only had one set for each armor type, rather than tier sets for each class — a forerunner of the raid gear model used in Battle for Azeroth and the first two tiers of Shadowlands. Also during Warlords of Draenor, Horde and Alliance got access to the same Combatant’s (lower tier PvP) appearances on alternating PvP seasons — the Horde’s Wild Combatant’s gear has the same appearance as the Alliance’s Warmongering Combatant’s gear, and vice versa.

Felfume Robes (Hellfire Citadel LFR), Wild Combatant’s Silk Robe (H)/Warmongering Combatant’s Robe (A), Warmongering Combatant’s Robe (H)/Wild Combatant’s Silk Robe (A)

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 (*).

130) Elation and Anguish



Helm of Arcane Purity, Magician’s Mantle, Cloak of the Red Flight, Goldweave Tunic, Formal White Shirt, Galaxyfire Girdle, Astralaan Pants, Gnomish Casting Boots, Jin’ya (LFR)
In the harsh brilliance of Bastion, the manifestations of emotion from Kyrian Aspirants struggling to follow the Path reminded Kaelyra strongly of Pandaria’s Sha.
In the beginning of planning out how to proceed through the 9.0 Covenant Campaigns, I was going to do Kyrian with Keliora the Priest and Necrolords with Kalaneia the Warlock. Then 9.1.5 came along and made Covenant-swapping a whole lot more convenient, and I decided to narrow my bandwidth and do Kyrian with Kaelyra the alter-ego of Kaelyla and Necrolords with Kateleina the alter-ego of Kaelinda. But I didn’t get around to doing the Covenant Campaigns while those characters were in those Covenants. Then when Kaelinda and Kaelyla were in their final covenants — having swapped places so now Kaelinda was in Kyrian and Kaelyla was in Necrolords — a Patch 9.2 hotfix greatly increased the amount of Renown awarded from doing the 9.0 Covenant Campaigns. With Void Elves having access to almost all of the same natural skin tones and hair colors as Blood Elves, however, there’s considerable potential to blur which toon (character file on the server) can express which character appearance identity…. So here we have Kaelyra now as an alter-ego of Kaelinda, ready to skip a big chunk of Renown-grinding via Callings and just go do that 9.0 Kyrian Campaign already. The hairstyle gives away which version of Elf is the base model for the character.

129) Troll Action Battle Princess II







Fen Spirit Headdress, Fen Spirit Mantle, Cloak of Everburning Knowledge, any sleeveless tunic, Talanji’s Expedition Tabard, Aspiring Aspirant’s Handwraps/Loa Speaker’s Cuffs, Sash of the Chosen Dead, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Aspiring Aspirant’s Slippers/Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Warmongering Combatant’s Battle Staff
Every time I looked at the original Troll Action Battle Princess (Blood Elf Mage #67), I wished that I’d used the shoulders that match the headdress. So I decided to just do it, and maybe change a couple of other things about the outfit, as well. And this time, I could do it with my actual Troll Princesses, too!
With Kilauea, I Hid both gloves and bracers to show off her golden arm tattoos. With Kikimaia, I used the Loa Speaker’s Cuffs to emulate Kilauea’s golden arm tattoos. And with Kaelinda, I used the Aspiring Aspirant’s Handwraps to emulate Talanji’s own gloves.

128) Restless Dreams








Court Inquisitor’s Hood, Nar’thalas Scrollmantle, Dreamscale Inlaid Vestments, Demonic Gladiator’s Silk Handguards, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Sash, Wild Gladiator’s Treads of Cruelty, Soul Keeper’s Column/Staff of Immaculate Recovery
As soon as I saw the Nar’thalas Scrollmantle, I knew that I wanted to pair it with the Dreamscale Inlaid Vestments for Kaelydia to wear when she came to the Kyrian.

127) Eversong Gardener




Vital Headband, Nature’s Embrace, Jade’s Lovely Shirt, Delaris’ Gloves + Mistyreed Bracers, Chloromesh Girdle, Master’s Boots, Aluneth (default, 4th tint)/Rejuvenating Scepter + Growthshaper Branch/Garden Shovel
Kaelinda learned her love of plants and most of her knowledge of the plant life of the Eastern Kingdoms from her mother, a skilled botanist and horticulturalist.

There are a number of nice botanical off-hands: Evergreen Branch, Blossom of the Earthen Ring, Dreamseeker Dandelion, Suntouched Flowers

126) Mugambala Mystique

Fen Spirit Headdress, Fen Spirit Mantle, Flowing Sapphiron Drape, Lovely Blue Dress/Windchanneller’s Tunic, Celestial Kilt, Celestial Observer’s Astral Walkers, Warmongering Combatant’s Energy Staff

Shadra Silk Headband, Shadra Silk Mantle, Butcher’s Wrap, Lovely Red Dress/Simple Blouse, Colorful Kilt, Infernoweave Boots, Wild Combatant’s Battle Staff

Cobra Priest’s Headdress, Sandspinner Mantle, Finely Woven Cloak, Lovely Black Dress/Lovely Purple Dress/Willow Vest, Elunarian Sarong, Kafa Silk Treads, Warmongering Combatant’s Battle Staff
A Lovely Green Dress would be totes hawt — but then, for just about every monochrome item in the wardrobe that is available in two or three or four colors, I wish that I could have it in All The Colours.

125) Fancy Festival Suits


Crown of Eternal Memorial, Exquisite Sunderseer Mantle, Ruby Drape of the Mysticant, Festival Suit

Crown of Eternal Memorial, Duskhallow Mantle, Brilliant Hexweave Cloak, Festive Black Pant Suit

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Azure Dusk Mantle, Flowing Sapphiron Drape, Festive Blue Pant Suit

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Slaughterhouse Spaulders, Celestial Observer’s Starshroud, Festive Teal Pant Suit
All Outfits Include: Duskhaven Boots, Crescent Wand, Kobold Candle
The wand represents Elune, of course, and the off-hand, the festival firecrackers. If you are wearing pants with dimensional pieces on the hips, the dimensional pieces will show up over the Festival chestpieces, so unless you like that look, you’ll want to Mog to a plainer pair of pants.
For the corresponding Festival Dress outfits, see Void Elf Mage #57.

124) Burnt Mana Buns


Crown of Endless Knowledge, Arcanoshatter Mantle (H), Je’neu’s Robes, Demonic Gladiator’s Silk Cord, Sorcerer Slippers, Ebonchill (upgraded, 4th tint)
Looking at the colors of this robe, trying to come up with a name for this kit, all I could think of was deeply caramelized sugar.
In olden times, this robe would have been worn with the Geomancer’s Spaulders —

— but this Warlords raid piece coordinates beautifully and looks so much cooler.
