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 (*).

122) August Celestial Observer

Celestial Observer’s Ensemble with Anacondra’s Robe, Cushy Cenarion Walkers, August Celestials Tabard, Starshard Edge, and Divine Companion
As I’ve mentioned before, I like the patterning on the sleeves and skirt of the Celestial Observer’s Robe, but I’m not a fan of its bulky dimensional chestplate. When I thought of substituting this robe, naturally I immediately had to do it.

121) Soothsayer




Mystical Headwrap, Sympathetic Amice, Foxhollow Drape, Initiate’s Necromantle Vestments, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Coalwalker Sandals (H), Jaina’s Staff
The coordination between the robe and the turban is the core concept of this kit.

54) Inquisitor at Court II

Court Inquisitor’s Vestments with Gleaming Crypt Keeper’s Mantle, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Mantle & Sash, Sandswept Sandals, Sinfall Ceremonial Blade, and Anima-Infused Muck
More playing around with mix-and-match of the 9.0 and 9.1 Venthyr cosmetics. See also Blood Elf Mage #116 and Warlock #78.

53) Empyreal Aspirations


Empyrial Cosmic Crown, Waylight Shoulderpads, Drape of Twisted Loyalties, Aspiring Aspirant’s Robes & Handwraps, Cord of Uncertain Devotion, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Spectral Censorite’s Staff
These gold and white shoulders from Bastion leveling are rapidly becoming one of my favorite pieces from this expansion.

52) Aspiring Attendant


Aspiring Aspirant’s Regalia with Shadowlace Mantle, Shadowlace Cord, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, and Warmage’s Spire
This set has no shoulders of its own; these ones look pretty good with it, don’t they?

51) Pearls and Diamonds


Court Inquisitor’s Hood, Waylight Shoulderpads, Sha’tari Anchorite’s Cloak, Astral Knot Robe*, Black Belt of Knowledge, Astralaan Boots, Aluneth (upgraded, 3rd tint)
I was thinking of this as a white and gold outfit while I was putting it together. When I got it finished, however, I realized that this robe is more silvery than white, which reminded me of pearls.

Darn it if that Celestial Observer’s set that just got added to the cash shop isn’t pretty. It might even be just the thing to encourage Kerisa to get her feathery Boomkin bum back into Horrific Visions of Orgrimmar to get Ashjra’kamas upgraded to its final appearance — that set and that cape look like they’d go together quite beautifully. If the ghastly news about Blizzard’s internal culture hadn’t broken open over the summer, I’d have bought the Celestial Observer’s set and be showing off new Mogs with it in this post already. Now, though, it seems like a money grab and an attempt to distract (or something) from the increasingly bad PR, and I feel rather conflicted about giving Blizzard anything more than my sub.

The “Baby Murloc Satch-Shells” that have also just been released seem like an attempt to ride the coattails of the popularity of The Child from The Mandalorian. Apparently they’re tied to a 6-month sub, so I’ll be getting them by default. I’d rather have the Celestial Observer’s set by default.

Wowhead has some early datamining of the Mythic Progenitor Tier set models. The Mage set looks really bland to me; I think I might be more interested in collecting the lookalike items for the Priest and Warlock sets (from the LFR colorations, of course). The Warlock robe I think looks especially nifty with the ribboned panel with the design that goes across all the ribbons on the front of the skirt.

Like the bloggers I read, I was not particularly impressed or excited by the Patch 9.2 preview announcement.

The realms of Death should be otherworldly, and the existing zones of Shadowlands are suitably otherworldly while still retaining some familiarity (at least the leveling zones are)… but Zereth Mortis is waaaay out there in strangeness. Pretty, yes, but also uncomfortably wierd.

Although I feel engaged enough by the Covenants and their stories, the grand story of this expansion lost me a long time ago. Thus, I’m not feeling motivated to explore Zereth Mortis for the story progression because it’s leaving the Covenants behind (or so it seems from what we know so far).

In another set of RL circumstances, I might be excited by the return of class-specific Tier sets and by the sets that were previewed. I am very checked-out of raiding right now, though. Even with a sort-of goal of having either the shoulders or the chestpiece of at least one of the recolors of every Mage Tier set (including PvP recolors, for Black Temple and most of the Legion sets, yay for being able to get Marks of Honor from PvE content during that expansion!), after I finally got the chestpiece for the Castle Nathria set back in late June/early July, I haven’t managed to drag myself into Sanctum of Domination LFR to get the chestpiece for that set.

And with no new non-raid PvE Mog stuff to chase after — except maybe a questing/zone drop set which might show up from datamining/testing by Wowhead folks on the PTR? — I just am not feeling a great need to be ready to go running off to Zereth Mortis as soon as it becomes available.

I dunno, maybe the puzzle aspect of the Cipher of the First Ones will be an intriguing enough game to play? If I don’t let myself get spoilt by the datamining, etc, from the PTR?

I think the most interesting thing to come out of the Patch 9.2 news is the idea that the end of the Shadowlands story “closes a book” on the overall story of Warcraft/Azeroth. This makes me quite curious to find out how 10.0 will change what we know about Warcraft/Azeroth to “open a new book”, so to speak, of its story.

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

101) Avatar



Tasteful Eyeglasses, Stylish Blue Shirt, Squallshaper Leggings, Stickyfoot Sandals, Fighter Broadsword + Tome of the Dawn
An attempt to make my Human Mages look like I do in the Real World, sort of. I wear my hair in a tail like Kaylynda most of the time, but it curls like Kayliddia’s hair when I wear it loose. My hair color is somewhere in between the orange of Kaylynda’s hair and the reddish-brown of Kayliddia’s hair. My body shape is definitely more Boralus than Stormwind.
The sword I chose is meant to represent these play swords that my husband spent much of the last year or two making.

They have an aluminum bar core encased in cardboard and/or foam, held together with wood glue or caulk or sewn cord, and, obviously, duct tape.

Like my four year-old who is so excited for Halloween, I “can’t wait” for Patch 9.1.5 because I’m so excited to be able to bring Kamalia to the Shadowlands without having to go through that introductory Maw experience one more time. As I’ve played with my Mages, Druid, Priest, and Warlock, I’ve found myself missing slinging Flame Shocks and Lava Bursts and Chain Lightnings and Earthquakes as an Elemental Shaman. I also just miss being Kamalia because she’s my oldest and “flagship” character.

With Kamalia in the Shadowlands, I’ll have three of the four armor classes there. That makes it tempting to also bring out my Paladin, Karelia. Then I’d want to bring my Tauren Priest, Kaohana, so that I’ll have all four armor classes as Tauren, and because the twins don’t like to be separated. But I know that that’s more alts than I can really manage, so I am telling myself quite firmly that I am only going to advance Kamalia.

I plan to matriculate Kamalia with the Night Fae and then slowly level her with my favorite no or minimal combat World Quests. After Kamalia has acquired all of the Night Fae stuff I’d like her to have, I’ll covenant swap her to the Kyrian to get their gorgeous set — at least the Campaign coloration; I may or may not also go for the Renown coloration — then swap back to the Night Fae.

In thinking about what kind of Covenant hopping I might want to do with my other characters, I began to think about which characters I might want to bring ahead to 10.0. Which characters will need to cycle through all the Covenants so that they’ll have access to all the things to Mog with in the future? Over the past few expansions (Shadowlands included), I’ve figured out that I can handle about four active characters at a time. The four characters I want to keep actively playing for as long as I keep playing WoW are Kamalia, Kerisa, Kaelinda, and Kaelyla. Kamalia only wants Night Fae and Kyrian stuff, and Kerisa only wants Night Fae stuff. It’s just the Mages who really want stuff from all four of the Covenants. So, after Kaelinda has reached 80 Renown and unlocked unlimited Covenant hopping, and after I’ve completed all of the 9.0 Covenant Campaigns with the designated characters, I’ll want Kaelinda and Kaelyla to each take turns with all of the Covenants. I’m imagining having them work together to collect the sets from the Korthia daily quests…

12) Tide Witch



Shirakess Headdress, Charlotte’s Chastizing Pauldrons, Squallshaper Vestments, Frost-Touched Cord, Sirensong Handwraps, Sirensong Slippers, Ebonchill (PvP, default tint)
To finish off this series, Kayliddia returns once more to her familiar, comfortable Tidesage robes. And it wanted the Nazjatar pirate hat, it just did.

11) Charlotte’s Extensive Mind


Charlotte’s Chastizing Pauldrons, Robes of Rasped Breaths, Deeptide Cinch, Gloves of the Arcane Purge, Ikeyen’s Boots, Jaina’s Staff
Here we have these shoulders with the matching robe and gloves for the Northrend style set of which they are a part. The outfit name comes from Mantle of the Extensive Mind, which is identical to Charlotte’s Chastizing Pauldrons.

120) Murex and Oxxein


Warmongering Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Initiate’s Necromantle Shoulders & Vestments, Hexweave Belt (stage 1), Elder’s Gloves & Boots, Death Fetish, Staff of Beasts
I initially liked the concept of this Necrolords backpiece as “Soul Shards” for my Warlock. This color, which matches the oxxein ore of Maldraxxus, is probably the only one of the four which I will obtain. Two of the other three are rewards from the Abomination Factory, an activity which I have no interest in doing, and the last is a drop from a tricksy rare spawn.
Murex is the genus of sea snails that produce the dye known as Tyrian purple — which is actually a red-violet rather than this bluish-violet, but I liked how the “x”s in the names went together.

119) Plagues and Poisons

Fel-Proof Goggles, Shawl of the Penitent (LFR), Barbarous Osteowings, Robes of the Cursed Commando (LFR), Twisted Sisters Handwraps, Slippers of the Forgotten Heretic (LFR), Journey’s End/Staff of the Plague Beast
Journey’s End matches the color of the robe so nicely, but Staff of the Plague Beast makes the overall ensemble look better — and works for a thematic naming motif, too.

118) Honorbound Wizard



Darckli’s Dragonfire Diadem, Honorbound Artificer’s Amice & Robes, Fearless Gladiator’s Silk Cord, Slippers of the Forgotten Heretic (LFR), Argent Conscript’s Drape (H), Bloodfire Greatstaff
More loyal to The Horde as an organization than many of my other characters, Kateleina’s ambition, might, insight, guile, and relentless desire for the success of those to whom she gives her loyalty make her an ideal candidate for the Necrolords.

117) Sin’Venthyr IV

Court Inquisitor’s Hood & Robes, Sin’dorei Pauldrons Belt & Slippers, Cuffs of Unrelenting Anguish, Fine Crimson Cloak, Golden Staff of the Sin’dorei
The wraps around the forearms are part of the Court Inquisitor’s Robes. These lovely Legion bracers dress them up even more nicely than the set bracers do.

116) Inquisitor At Court

Court Inquisitor’s Vestments with Hidden Shoulders & Cloak, Cord of Unhinged Malice (H) and Avowed Arcanist’s Staff
This set does come with shoulders — though I think they look better with the trousers outfit — and also looks quite smashing with a variety of other red and gold shoulders. For a ball, though, the shoulders really should just be bare. I’m not a great fan of the wiggly belt of the set itself; for cloth-wearers, this Hellfire Citadel piece substitutes quite nicely.

115) Crooked Soulbreaker

Soulbreaker’s Ebony Vestments with Hat of the Youngest Sister, Repression Belt, Noble’s Fancy Boots, Waycrest Guard’s Cloak, and Damnation
I had intended to do another iteration of the Sin’Venthyr concept next, but then it was Hallow’s End and I thought that one of the Crooked Tree hats might look good with the Campaign coloration of the Venthyr cloth gear.

114) Sin’Venthyr III


Harvester’s Court Attire with Sin’dorei Pauldrons Gauntlets & Cloak and Rod of the Blazing Light
The Harvester’s Court boots are just the bulky gold-trimmed boots I’ve been wanting to go with the bulky gold-trimmed gloves of the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor.

113) Harvester At Court


Harvester’s Court Attire with Arcanoshatter Mantle (H), Hidden Belt, and Gilded Sineater’s Staff
This set has no shoulders of its own. In addition to the shoulders shown here, it also looks fabulous with:

the Court Inquisitor’s Mantle, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Mantle,

Shoulderpads of Knowledge’s Pursuit, Mantle of the Elven Kings, and Duskhallow Mantle.

112) Noblesse Oblige


Chief Architect’s Monocle, Duskhallow Mantle, Nobleman’s Coat & Pantaloons, Black Mageweave Gloves, Slippers of the Forgotten Heretic (LFR), Parrotfeather Cloak, Suen-Wo (LFR)
Although I seem to recall reading somewhere that the blood magic Anima of the Mogu is not the same thing as the Anima of the Shadowlands, Suen-Wo still makes a great weapon for a Venthyr-themed outfit.
I originally designed this ensemble with the monocle, but it also looks great with

the Duskhaven Top Hat or the LFR Crown of the Seducer.

111) Municipal Functionary



Tasteful Eyeglasses, Mystical Armor/High Councillor’s Tunic, Dreamer’s Belt, Darkweave Breeches, High Councillor’s Boots, Formal White Shirt, Ancient Measuring Rod + Bureaucrat’s Handbook/Befouled Staff
This handsome fellow is Kaelinda’s “special someone”, Ianestin. Less adventurous than Kaelinda, he works in the Silvermoon City Ministry of Finance and pursues esoteric mathemagical research on the side. He has previously appeared, uncredited, as a male model for Kaelinda’s outfits 92, 88, and 72. This outfit is the in-game kit that I was imagining when I drew Kaelinda and Ianestin here and here, except for the boots, which are more like the leather Slippers of the Unruly Fairies in my drawings. The items in the wand + off-hand version of the kit were chosen not for their coordination with the rest of the ensemble but rather for the RP value of their names!
In the top row of pictures, the haircut & facial hair in the left picture are closest to how I have drawn Ianestin; they are apparently the default male Sin’dorei appearance in my brain. The haircut & facial hair in the middle picture are the result of using a Transmorphic Tincture on Kaelinda’s appearance; the haircut is serendipitously the same as Fabulor‘s hairdo (though not his facial hair), which makes it the epitome of fashionable male Sin’dorei grooming. The haircut & facial hair in the right picture are the appearance he chose after Sin’dorei men got new grooming options in Patch 9.0.
This one’s for you, Fabulor.

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 (*).

50) 7th Legion Wizard



Arathi Warfront Alliance Cloth with Hidden Gloves, Crafted Cloak of War and 7th Legionnaire’s Stave
Patch 9.1.5 introduced natural hair colors for Void Elves, allowing me to at last create a character who is a never-left-the-Alliance High Elf! Kaelyra’s ideals of purity, humility, courage, wisdom, and loyalty draw her to the Kyrian.

49) Azure Dawn

Argent Conscript’s Circlet Mantle & Cord, Azure Dusk Vestments & Leggings, Faewoven Handwraps, Wild Gladiator’s Treads of Cruelty, Royal Blue Cloak, Pillar of the Dreamgrove
The Alliance version of the Argent Conscript’s set has just the right hues of blue and bronze to complement the Garb of the Azure Dusk.

48) Pure Spirit, Pure Sight


Garb of Pure Spirit with Expeditionary Cloth Hood (A), Cloak of Cheerful Flowers, and Ebonchill (upgraded, default tint)
The ensemble name for this set is “Pure Spirit”, but all the individual item names are “Pure Sight”. Seems to me like there must have been a name change decision that didn’t get fully propagated before Patch 9.1 went live…
The little pipes on the hip are a marvelous detail that I didn’t discover until I saw her on her flying disc!
Gaea’s Circlet or the Moonsoul Crown are nice alternative headpieces for Horde characters.

47) Winter Moon

Winterborn Regalia with Snowblind Helm and Quarterstaff of Discordant Ethic
Kaelyla had just obtained the Winterborn Regalia when she reached Renown 60 and acquired the Garb of Pure Spirit. She decided to wear the Winterborn set first.
The tunic version of this outfit looks amazing with the Wild Hunt, August Celestials, Lightbringer, or Silver Covenant Tabards.

46) Dreaming Wisteria


Moonpriest’s Visor, Hateful Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Robes of the Shadowcaster, Cord of Uncertain Devotion, Darkweave Breeches, Shadowlace Cuffs, Noble’s Fancy Boots, Moon Guard Drape, Night Courtier’s Spire
I acquired this staff for my Druid, thinking I wasn’t particularly interested in it for my Mage. Then I thought of pairing it with this robe and Khrysanthemina’s purple hair, and here we are.
A nice alternate hat for a Horde character would be the Fae Revel Masque:

45) Wild Hunt Messenger



Sorcerer Drape, Bridenbrad’s Sash, Squallshaper Leggings, Pure Aspirant’s Gloves + Fireflash Bracers, Pure Aspirant’s Treads, Winterwoven Bulb, Tabard of the Wild Hunt, Staff of Radiance
This Classic chestpiece and these BfA pants were just the thing to coordinate with the Tabard of the Wild Hunt — and with each other. I love it when I find items from such widely disparate expansions that go together so nicely!
Although the Frost-Touched Cord coordinates wonderfully with the rest of the ensemble —

— it doesn’t line up properly with the waistline of the tabard, so a different belt is needed when the tabard is worn.

44) Fae Darter


Sprite Darter’s Shawl, High Councillor’s Pants, Tinkmaster’s Spare Shoes, Night Courtier’s Branches, Meadow Guardian’s Staff
The Sprite Darter chestpiece and this Night Fae backpiece just seemed like they ought to go together.
I love the extended tunic design of this chestpiece, and would like to see this rigging used for other extended tunic chestpieces in the future.

43) Weald Wanderer


Shadowbrim Travel Hat, Hateful Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Blue Overalls, Willow Belt, Elder’s Gloves & Boots, Green Workman’s Shirt, Faewoven Pack, Meadow Guardian’s Staff
For whatever reason, it seemed like my first outfit to go with this particular Night Fae backpiece style should be an outdoorsy hiking-type kit.

42) Effervescent Night


Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Wrathful Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Robe of Effervescent Light, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Tempest’s Touch, Slippers of the Twilight Prophet, Night Courtier’s Bulb, Viridium Staff of Alacrity
The key concept of this ensemble is the combination of the Night Fae backpiece, the robe, and the shoulders. It is also an interation of Kaohana’s outfit #75.

41) Stars’ Grace



Vestia’s Pauldrons of Inner Grace, Ren’dorei Mantle & Belt, Bonecaster’s Sarong, Gloves of Penitence, Willow Boots, Periwinkle Cloak, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Starshard Edge + Decanter of Distilled Shadows
Playing around with more shoulders that look fabulous with the void wings from the Ren’dorei Heritage Armor chestpiece.
I love how the lavender shirt coordinates with the shoulders and the kilt — but I also rather like how this particular kit looks without the shirt.

110) Minerva



Dazzling Spectacles, Mantle of the Tribunal, Labor Camp Frock, Mana-Cord of Deception, Sorcerer Slippers, Drape of the Loyal Vassal, Cauldron Dredger
Minerva McGonagall hits many of the same character notes as Morwen. I caught the Harry Potter wave just before Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was released in the US; I was about nineteen at the time. Professor McGonagall soon became another of my favorite literary role models. Aspiring to be like Professor McGonagall is perhaps a little more within my grasp in my RL role as a Professor, though I still don’t really come close.
See also Human Mage #43.

109) None of This Nonsense, Please



Dazzling Spectacles, Black Velvet Robes, Shadow Council Boots, Tower of Theramore
Patricia C Wrede is my favorite author; The Enchanted Forest Chronicles are my favorite of her works; Morwen is my favorite character in that series. I was thirteen or fourteen when I first met Morwen, and I wanted to be like her when I grew up (spoiler alert: I’m not as much like her as I thought I wanted to be). When I was first venturing onto the internet over twenty years ago, I used “Morwen” as my screenname. So somehow it was no surprise that my primary Mage character ended up with an appearance very much like Morwen’s description. The Dazzling Spectacles are what I needed to finally complete that look!

108) Duel of Frost and Fire






Jewel of the Firelord/Crown of Eternal Winter, Frostwind Mantle/Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Cloudscorcher Robe, Frostwind Cord/Embereye Belt, Adept’s Gloves, Slippers of Serenity, Tabard of Summer Flames/Tabard of Summer Skies, Ebonchill (Hidden, first tint)
It’s Midsummer Fire Festival and I’ve had a note in my “Notebook” perpetual draft post that when Midsummer Fire Festival came around again, I should make a Mage kit with the Hidden appearance of Ebonchill — and I didn’t want to wait a whole ‘nother year to do it.
This outfit is derived from a Midsummer Fire Festival kit that I made several years ago for my Draenei Mage.

107) Scryer Illuminator



Helm of Arcane Purity, Elegant Mantle, Imbued Netherweave Robe, Black Belt of Knowledge, Adept’s Gloves, Shadow Council Boots, Scryers Tabard, Staff of Dominance
Having lost everything except each other when the Scourge invaded, Kaelyla and her husband, Ishaleron, travelled with Prince Kael’thas and Lady Vashj to join forces with Illidan Stormrage in Outland. Eventually, observing Kael’thas’ actions, they defected with Lord Voren’thal and became Scryers in Shattrath. Kaelyla had her first significant experiences with the Void at the beleagured Manaforge Ultris in Netherstorm. This piqued her interest, and, as a Scryer seeks the truth in all things, she began to investigate what was known of the Void.

106) Young Maiden


Journeyman’s Robe, Omnicast Boots, Wound Dressing, Expeditionary Staff
When Kaelyla was very young, her hair was lighter in color; it darkened rapidly during her early adulthood.
This appearance concept is mostly an excuse to use this Blood Elf hair color, which is new in Shadowlands, and this robe, which I’ve been wanting to make an outfit with for awhile.

105) Sin’Venthyr II


Crown of the Champion, Sin’dorei Pauldrons Belt & Slippers, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Vestments, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Mantle of Crimson Blades, House Renathal Ceremonial Dagger + Red Crane Scepter
Another mix-and-match of the Sin’dorei Heritage and Venthyr Renown sets.
The dimensional pieces on the sleeves of the robe took layering priority even over the bulky, showy design of the Sin’dorei gauntlets, so I had to choose some different gloves.
Although the crane off-hand is a Pandaria item, its colors are very Sin’dorei, and its rather phoenix-like shape is also appropriate for the Sin’dorei.

104) Sin’Venthyr



Sin’dorei Helm & Tunic, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Mantle Leggings & Slippers, Corpse-Stitcher’s Cord, Primal Combatant’s Gloves of Prowess, Shadowfeather Shawl, Gilded Sineater’s Staff
A first go at mashing up the Heritage of the Sin’dorei and Venthyr Renown armor sets.
My Blood Elf Paladin is currently wearing this hat with this hairstyle, and they just suit each other so well. Using this hairstyle was too much of a change for Kaelinda, however. It works for Kaelydia, though — maybe because she has golden eyes, like the Paladin?
I thought I was done with Venthyr Anima collectibles, but apparently I needed just one more — the Renown recolor of the staff — and I had the Anima on hand, so I got it.

103) Crimson Soulbreaker



Soulbreaker’s Crimson Vestments with Resplendent Circlet and Twisted Visage
The Renown tint of the Venthyr Covenant armor set.
Kaelinda farmed Anima pretty intensively to collect this set and the two Venthyr Renown backpieces. Those were all the Anima collectibles she wanted, though, so now she can relax and let some of my other characters take the spotlight for awhile.
I chose Venthyr for Kaelinda partly because I thought that the red & gold variation of that Covenant’s armor set would be fun to play mix-and-match with the Heritage of the Sin’dorei set, so expect outfits along those lines to be showing up sometime soon!

102) Countess of Blades


Resplendent Circlet, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Mantle/Hidden Shoulder, Ferocious Gladiator’s Silk Robe, Illidari Bindings, Kavan’s Forsaken Treads, Shroud of Resolve (rank 6)/Mantle of Crimson Blades, Ebonchill (default, fourth tint)
There were two combinations of shoulders and cloak that looked simply amazing with this robe. Although I’ve included them both in this listing, the Mantle of Crimson Blades variation is what I ran around in.

101) Penitent’s Pilgrimage






Pilgrim’s Cover, Fireworm Robes, Black Mageweave Gloves + Wraithcloth Bindings, Windshaper Treads, Acolyte’s Shirt, Kael’s Dark Sinstone Chain, Hardened Root Staff*
Kaelinda feels no need to lug around a Sinstone.
Kaelydia, however, still keenly feels guilt for the actions of the Sin’dorei in Outland because she went to Outland with Prince Kael’thas and participated in some of his operations there prior to defecting to Shattrath City with Seer Voren’thal and the Scryers.
With the hood covering her hair, this character is primarily recognizable as Kaelydia by her golden eyes.
This outfit is all about the RP, which is why I took so many pictures of it — but I quickly discovered that in addition to not being particularly fond of the Sinstone as a static design, I also really don’t like how it bounces and jostles and wobbles and whips the loose end of the chain all over while she is moving. In fact, I disliked the movement of the Sinstone so much that this outfit only lasted for a few days; as soon as I’d finished taking the screenshots for this posting, I went and changed to a new outfit.
