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

11) Angelic Clarion

Crown of the Fire Festival, Mantle of the Avatar, Aurora Robe, Cord of Uncertain Devotion, Steps of the High Priest, Sigilback’s Smashshell, Ritual Bell
With the holidays over, a few item swaps convert Keliora’s previous outfit into one that can be worn year-round — and is perfectly suited to questing in Bastion, as well!

About a month ago, I got a bee in my bonnet about using the Hidden appearance of Tu’ure, Staff of the Lightborn, with the Kyrian gear.

Kaohana had the Rod of the Ascended in her bags already, so I loaded her up with +XP Heirlooms and sent her off to level up. Brewfest was just beginning, so I did the ram riding Brewfest dailies. I ran a few Island Expeditions, did the quests to open up the Stormsong Valley and Drustvar bases, and then got bored of Island Expeditions. RL stuff got in the way, too, so she was at level 116 — which converted into level 48 — when Patch 9.0.1 arrived. After the patch, doing a a few Hallow’s End dailies, about half a continent worth of Candy Buckets, and the Tiragarde Sound foothold were enough to get her to level 50. I kitted her out in Benthic gear and sent her off to Halls of Valor to bully Hyrja into giving her the Crest of the Lightborn. It took 7 tries on Normal.

That’s all I’m going to do with her at level 50, though. I didn’t get her a Shroud of Resolve; after doing that questline 8 times, I just don’t have it in me to do it again. If she goes to the Shadowlands at all, it won’t be until the tail end of the expansion.

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

10) Gaudy Clarion

Crown of the Fire Festival, Mantle of the Avatar, Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater, Cord of the High Priest, Pure Aspirant’s Leggings, Steps of the High Priest, Sigilback’s Smashshell, Ritual Bell
Like various of my other Gaudy Winter Sweater outfits, the sweater itself is the only truly holiday thing about it, and could easily be swapped out for another piece to make a year-round version of the kit.
Because the gold-toned version of this Bastion bell offhand is only available from the Venthyr Ember Court, but I wanted to use the gold-toned version of the Bastion mace, I mixed golds and silvers in the rest of the outfit as well.

9) Eternal Halo

Nightvale Cowl, Shoulders of Foaming Fluids (N), Eternal Traveler Raiment & Treads, Sash of the Unredeemed, Fen Spirit Handwraps + Messner’s Cuffs, Redemption
As I came across combinations with various Priestly items while working on Eternal Traveler outfits for other characters, I saved up the ideas to use for Keliora’s Eternal Traveler outfit.

8) Mystical Dragoness

Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Helm, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Hexweave Robe (stage 2), Nethershard Girdle, Volatile Walkers, Purifier’s Silken Cape, Staff of Trembling Will
Kazuligosa (whose ears are now the correct length) has to be an Alter-Ego of a Priest so that this crafted headpiece can be used to give her draconic horns similar to those of the humanoid forms of Alexstrasza, Ysera, and Merithria. This kit is a variation on an outfit I originally designed for Kaohana (#42).

It also looks splendid with the Cranewing Cloak.

7) Another Blue Dragon Princess

Frostwind Mantle, Recruit’s Robe*/Soulcloth Vest, Sprite Darter’s Sash, Celestial Kilt, Replica Sorcerer’s Boots, Spire of Coagulated Globules (LFR)
Now that blue hair is no longer restricted to Death Knights, well, something like this was more or less inevitable. This half-elf humanoid form of a blue dragon is named “Kazuligosa”, after Kazul from Patricia C Wrede’s Dealing With Dragons. She is supposed to have the shortest ears, too, but I didn’t realize that I’d forgotten to change her ear size until I was previewing the post — at which point I didn’t feel like going back to take another set of pictures…

6) Effulgent Sanctification

Empyrial Cosmic Crown, Conqueror’s Shoulderpads of Sanctification, Conqueror’s Robe of Sanctification, Sash of the Unredeemed (M), Fel-Flecked Grips (M), Shadow Council Boots, Cranewing Cloak, Argent Crusader’s Tabard, Spectral Censorite’s Staff
This outfit started with the hat, the shoulders, the tabard, and the staff. I hadn’t intentionally farmed for this robe, but now I’m glad that I got it along the way to getting the shoulders, because it’s just the thing to go with the tabard.
Here’s a darker variation with the Army of the Light Tabard and the Robes of the High Priest:

5) Bouganvilla III

Crown of Boundless Courage, Savage Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Vital Robes, Silkwood Cord, Resplendent Sarong, Gloves of the Hypnotic Flame, Ruby Slippers, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Vengeance Staff
An update/palette inversion of one of the earliest outfits I made for my Warlock (#3).
Kul Tiras has such pretty flowering vines!

4) Vol’dandy

Fen Spirit Headdress, Fen Spirit Mantle, Royal Blouse, Girdle of Nobility, Astralaan Pants, Sage’s Gloves + Celestial Bindings, Curate’s Boots, Flowing Sapphiron Drape, Formal White Shirt, Talanji’s Expedition Tabard, Fangcaller’s Staff
A blue variation on Kaelinda’s outfit #69. I also made a green variation; see Kalaneia’s #68.

Nazmiracle — red blood for Nazmir; Vol’dandy — blue sky for Vol’dun; Zuldazzling — green jungle for Zuldazar.

3) Sin’dorei Scarlet

Whitemane’s Chapeau, Sin’dorei Pauldrons Belt & Slippers, Scarlet Sin’dorei Robes, Shroud of Resolve (rank 6), Light’s Wrath (hidden, default tint)
This outfit is similar to Kaohana’s “Crimson Pilgrim” kit (Priest #71), with Sin’dorei Heritage items replacing the accessory pieces.

2) Sin’dorei Soulguide

Heritage of the Sin’dorei with Demonic Gladiator’s Satin Hood, Girdle of Prophecy, Pantaloons of Growing Strife, Boots of Prophecy, Shroud of Resolve (rank 6), and Rod of the Blazing Light
I used the Sin’dorei Leggings with a different chestpiece for my Warlock (#66), so I decided to use the Sin’dorei Tunic with different pants for my Priest. Instead of finding slimmer gloves, like I did with my Warlock, I found some bulkier boots.

1) Communal Regalia

Communal Regalia
These are the clothes that Boosted Priests are given. They are identical to the clothes given to newly created Allied Races Priests. This set can also be obtained from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.

I was telling BTH about Shadowlands and how I was leveling a relatively new character (Kaelyla) to play in it. Talking to BTH about the characters I had been actively playing, I realized that while I enjoy my Boomkin and my Mages and my Destro-Lock, I missed my Elemental Shaman.

I recalled Kamalia from Thunder Bluff and sent her off to acquire her Shroud of Resolve.

I looked at the Covenant armor sets again and began to consider recalling Karaelia (Tauren Paladin) from the Sanctum of Light to get her Shroud of Resolve, too, because dangit if that Kyrian plate set doesn’t look pretty (though she’d wear it with alternate helm and shoulders).

Still, neither Kamalia nor Karaelia will be in the first group of characters to go to the Shadowlands — unless BTH decides to give Shadowlands a look and I bring Kam out to play with him.

Looking at the Kyrian sets again, I thought how Priestly the cloth set looks. I hadn’t yet used the level 120 Boost that came with purchasing Shadowlands (something I did shortly after Kaelyla dinged 120), partly because I couldn’t decide which existing character to give it to. I thought, I have a Blood Elf Mage and a Blood Elf Warlock, so why not have a Blood Elf Priest, too, to go Kyrian? Golden-eyed and golden-haired, of course…

So, um, yeah.
Four Eversong Elves for four Shadowlands Covenants.

Kaylynda will still go to the Shadowlands, but now she doesn’t have to choose Kyrian if she decides that she’d be a better fit with the Night Fae or the Venthyr…

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

88) Dreamscale Ascendant

Wild Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Dreamscale Inlaid Vestments, Wild Gladiator’s Cord of Victory, T’uure (Hidden, first tint)
Having gone to the effort of obtaining this beautiful staff, naturally Kaohana wanted to use it. The robe from the LFR coloration of the Priest Tier set from Emerald Nightmare/Nighthold seemed like just the thing to go with it. Then I liked how the red ribbons with blue gems from the PvP recolor of the Hellfire Citadel Priest Tier set coordinated with the blue gem against a red background on the robe — and any opportunity to use this fun bell belt is marvelous!

87) The First Tauren Seers

Eternal Wraps, Willow Belt, Seer’s Cuffs, Gild’s Crewneck, Nimboya’s Mystical Staff*
This kit is my best approximation to the outfit worn by Tahu Sagewind as he first appeared in Patch 3.2.0 and now worn by Thunder Bluff Priest trainers Seer Kaya and Seer Beryl. Yes, I really have been waiting/procrastinating since Cataclysm to make this outfit for Kaohana.

86) Flaming Font/Frozen Font

Orange: Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of the Cleansing Flame (N), Consortium Combatant’s Robes, Braided Manastring Cinch, Tabard of Summer Flames, Staff of Endless Winter

Blue: Crown of Eternal Winter, Hydraxian Mantle, Warp Infused Drape, Braided Manastring Cinch, Tabard of Summer Skies, Icecore Staff
Kaohana gets to wear this pair of Midsummer Fire Festival outfits because there is no lookalike item for the Firelands Priest tier shoulders. The blue version (with the hat changed to Hidden) is what she is still wearing.

85) Zul’Aman’Dazar

Red: Saurifeather Crest & Mantle, Robes of Dissention/Faded Sprit-Wrencher Robe
Blue: Bloodhex Headdress & Mantle, Forlorn Loa-Binder Robe
Green: Skycaller Cowl & Mantle, Hexing Robes
All: Bloodhex Gloves, Stanchion of Primal Instinct

These robes, originally from Zul’Aman and later from the Isle of Thunder, coordinate nicely with the feathered hats and pauldrons from Zuldazar. My favorite combination, which Kaohana continued to wear after the Mog photoshoot, is the green one.

84) Ancestral Soothsayer

Ancestral Chieftain’s Headdress & Greatbelt, Mantle of Volatile Ice, Windshaper Robe, Frostwolf Wind-Talker Gloves, Ancient Measuring Rod, Beastskull Vessel
Ordinarily, I like to get an outfit posted before I change to another one. Kaohana was so excited about this outfit idea — especially after she remembered that the Artifact-centered weapon restrictions from the Broken Isles no longer applied — that I let her get away with having two outfits in the same Sunday Mog Show… this time.

83) Chromie Cosplay

Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Light-Mantle of the Incarnate, Runecloth Robe, Black Mageweave Gloves, Willow Boots, Keepers of Time Tabard, Key to the Planes
With the Priest T4 shoulders and the torso part of the Priest T2 robe, Chromie is something of a High Priestess of Time.

82) Miss Muriel

Hat of the Third Sister, Deadly Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Fire-Gizzard Robes, Ritual Belt, Embersilk gloves & boots, Mag’hari Chieftain’s Staff
Kaohana said, make me an outfit with this hat. So I did. It was a good opportunity to use these Wrath PVP shoulders, too!

81) Ancestral Ritualist

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Polychromatic Visionwrap*, Ritual Leggings, Acolyte’s Shirt, and Staff of Fiery Fate
Although there are several red tunics that look rather nice with the Tauren Heritage armor, I chose this no-longer-available item because it is a recolor of the same style that Tauren Priests start out wearing. I couldn’t quite find a skirt that I liked with both this chestpiece and the rest of the Heritage of the Shu’halo pieces. These shorts, however, work perfectly!

Will I ever do more with any of these characters than enter the world and maybe manage to get through the 1-5 zone and out to their racial capital city? Realistically speaking, probably not. Nevertheless, the collector in me still wanted to have a complete set of Classic Classes.

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

80) Legacy of the Emperor

Demonic Gladiator’s Satin Hood, Shoulders of Foaming Fluids (N), Legacy of the Emperor, Healer’s Belt of Final Winter (N), Nightvale Gloves, Kimbra Boots*, Communal Staff
I’ve long admired the Normal-mode coloration of the Priest Tier set from Terrace of Endless Spring/Heart of Fear. Because I only raid LFR at-level, however, I’ve had to wait a few expansions to get it.

79) Meditations Upon the Moon Lotus

Regalia of the Exorcist (LFR lookalike) with Suen-Wo (LFR)
Although most of the design of this robe is rather pretty, that heavy bell clanging against one’s shins all the time would get very tiresome very quickly!

78) Ancestral Seer

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Ancestral Robe, Neophyte’s Shirt, and Staff of Feral Furies
How could I not use the Ancestral Robe for this? I rather liked how certain low-level red vests looked, too, so Kaohana, at least, will get another Ancestral Chieftain’s outfit sometime in the future.

77) Ordon Pyresinger

Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Funeral Pyre Vestment, Sash of Mortal Desire, Glowing Magical Bracelets, Funeral Pyre (N)
I first designed this kit as a Yaungol RP outfit for Kaohana long, long ago. The gloves in the original outfit design were chosen to be as inconspicuous as possible; now, in Patch 8.2, they can be Hidden. I’ve kept the bracers visible, though, because they add to the barbaric, Yaungol-like image I intend to evoke.

76) Shrouded Moon

Furred Worgslayer Spaulders, Moonshroud Robe, Sash of the Unredeemed (LFR), Grips of Torrential Power, Apostle of Argus
I went to a certain amount of effort to collect the shoulders, robe, and gloves of this kit while Kaohana was leveling through Northrend, way back when, because this is my favorite coloration of this Northrend style. On the one hand, I really ought to have had her wear this outfit long, long ago. On the other hand, this BOE belt from Tomb of Sargeras LFR is simply perfect for the robe.

75) Effervescent Viridium

Wrathful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Robe of Effervescent Light, Telubis’ Binding of Patience, Tempest’s Touch, Shimmering Geta, Viridium Staff of Alacrity
I felt like Kaohana had been in her previous outfit long enough. Not having an idea in mind for her to wear next, I cast around for some inspiration and decided to build a kit around the other coloration of this Battle for Azeroth Jewelcrafted staff model.

74) Dreamscale Inlay

Demonic Gladiator’s Satin Hood, Primal Combatant’s Amice of Prowess, Dreamscale Inlaid Vestments (LFR), Girdle of Prophecy, Warmongering Gladiator’s Satin Gloves, Warm Red Woolen Socks, Rubellite Staff of Intuition
After Kaelinda finished collecting the Mage-lookalike set from Emerald Nighthold LFR, I kept going a little longer to pick up this lookalike of the Priest robe. I’m not a fan of the spikes on the elbows and hips, but otherwise I quite like this design.

73) Hai Hai Birdie

First Mate Hat, Buccaneer’s Vest, Captain Sanders’s Sash, Vileweave Leggings, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Buccaneer’s Boots, Stagheart Staff
I never quite caught on to the Pepe mania during Warlords. After being gifted a Cap’n Crackers, though, I had to find out if it was possible to have a bird on one’s shoulder and a bird on one’s head.

72) Eternal Vigil

Gossamer Headpiece, Vicious Embersilk Shoulders Robe & Belt, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Eye-Blinder Greatcloak, Light’s Wrath (PvP, default tint)
Calia Menethil is wearing this crafted set from Cataclysm. Like many other WoW clothing designs, it comes in three color variants. This one has always been my favorite.

71) Crimson Pilgrim

Whitemane’s Chapeau, Red Mageweave Shoulders, Scarlet Sin’dorei Robes, Girdle of Prophecy, Black Mageweave Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Light’s Wrath (hidden, default tint)
The Crimson Pilgrims seen in Legion Dalaran are a group of dissidents from the Scarlet Onslaught in New Hearthglen. They were scheduled to be executed for their heresy, but were rescued in the nick of time by the High Priest of the Netherlight Conclave.

70) Infusion of Clarity

Sage’s Mantle, Warp Infused Drape, Cord of the High Priest, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Communal Staff
Having just used these shoulders with the orange version of this robe for Kaohana’s Midsummer outfit, I thought that next I should use them with the blue version of the robe. I was going to Hide the belt, until I saw how nice the Priest Order Hall belt looked with the robe. Then using a Priest-exclusive staff, too, seemed like the thing this outfit wanted.

69) Midsummer Talespinner

Eye of Flame, Sage’s Mantle, Consortium Combatant’s Robes, Embersilk Cord, Black Mageweave Gloves + Nightvale Wristwraps, Sorcerer Slippers, Tabard of Summer Flames, Rod of the Broken Temple
Although monocles don’t look like much on Tauren, they do look good on Blood Elves and Gnomes!
This robe doesn’t have belled sleeves that the Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves can hide under, so I’ve had to be a little bit more clever than usual.

68) Between Light and Sha-dow

Gossamer Headpiece, Magician’s Mantle, Runecloth Robe, Fel-Infused Grips, White Linen Shirt, Jin’ya, Orb of the Waterspeaker (LFR)
This black-and-white weapon wanted a black-and-white outfit to go with it.
I have been sitting on this outfit idea for a ridiculously long time. As often happens when I’ve had a Mog idea for a couple of expansions before I finally get around to making it, the outfit is better for the wait. In this case, the Fel-Infused Grips are better than the Black Mageweave Gloves that I would have previously used, and this is a robe that benefits from being able to hide the belt.
(the spell effects, by the way, are Plea and Shadow Mend)

67) Scarlets’ Salvation

Whitemane’s Chapeau, Mantle of False Virtue, Robe of Power, Girdle of Prophecy, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Phoenix-Wing Cloak, Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade
Given the origin of Light’s Wrath, and the Crimson Pilgrims in Legion-Dalaran who comment upon it, it seemed appropriate to make this sort of a kit to complement it.

66) Thunder Bluff Talismans

Nimar’s Tribal Headdress, Silksand Shoulder Pads, Native Robe, Wise Man’s Belt, Heavy Linen Gloves + Featherbead Bracers*, Staff of Feral Furies, Thunder Bluff Tabard
I discovered recently that Kaohana isn’t Exalted with Thunder Bluff yet. Thus, it’s time to wear the tabard and run some old Heroics for awhile until she finishes up that last half of Revered.
Until Cataclysm, the Tauren had no cloth-wearing class. It seemed appropriate, therefore, to use this headdress style, which is usually leather but has this one cloth version; this robe, which is almost identical to that worn by a level 1 Tauren Druid; and this staff, which was originally intended for Feral Druids, in this outfit.
Although Enchanting has historically been a specialty of the Dawnstrider tribe, Kaohana is the only one of her immediate family who has chosen to pursue it.

65) The Twins: Mu’sha

Moonsoul Crown, Aurora Mantle, Mooncloth Robe, Warmongering Gladiator’s Satin Gloves, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Staff of the Faithful
This outfit was designed for me by Erinys. It represents Mu’sha, based on this text from the second of the Shu’halo creation myths:
The Earthmother, her heart heavy with her children’s plight, could not bear to watch them fall from grace. In her grief, she tore out her eyes and set them spinning across the endless, starry skies. An’she and Mu’sha, seeking to ease the other’s sorrow, could only chase each other’s faint glow across the sky. The twins still chase one another with every turning of the world.
At the time that Erinys designed this outfit, the Safeguard Gloves were the closest to all-white gloves that were available. I even farmed them up specifically so that I could later make this kit. In the interim, however, these bright white gloves became available.
This robe has always been difficult to find a good belt for because it really looks better without one. I think Erinys picked a great belt for her original design — but now that belts can be hidden, hiding the belt was definitely what this outfit wanted.

64) Dalaran Nurse

Replica Devout Mantle, Noble’s Robe, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Communal Stave
This robe, now a drop from the Stockades, was once a reward from a low-level Blood Elf Priest class quest. The “Dalaran Nurse’s Gown” sold by Angelique Butler looks like this robe, but it is not Transmogrifiable.

63) A Cleansing Fire

Mantle of the Cleansing Flame (N), Watcher’s Tunic, Sash of the Burning Heart, Embersilk Leggings, Black Mageweave Gloves + Supplicant’s Discarded Bracer, Sorcerer Slippers, Red Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Kyparitic Staff
Oh, hey, I found a use for these shoulders — the only piece from the Firelands Priest set that I actually like.

62) Heavenly & Venerable

Warmongering Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Anacondra’s Robe, Nethershard Girdle, Regal Gloves, Permafrost Cape, August Celestials Tabard, Clear Crystal Rod*
The Twilight Mantle is a perfect color match for this robe, but that style is uncomfortably large on Tauren. Besides, wings are so much more awesome.

61) Pandaren Homespun

Cyno’s Mantle of Sin, Cat Lover’s Vest, Belt of the Night Sky, Leggings of the Night Sky, Shadowmoon Grips, Footfalls of Memories, Epoch-Mender
These pants are similar to the Homespun Leggings, a quest reward from the Wandering Isle. These NPCs are wearing the robes from that outfit style, which I wish were obtainable in Transmogrification-friendly versions.

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

60) Nightmares of Eternal Darkness

Faded Spirit-Wrencher Shoulders, Fireworm Robes, Gem-Inlaid Velvet Cinch, Gloves of Piscine Attraction + Bracers of Martyrdom, Brilliant Hexweave Cloak (3-670), Blood Weeper + Prophetic Cane*/Damnation/Twisted Visage
After doing the main storyline of Val’sharah twelve times to collect the Tears of Elune and unlock the “acquire a Pillar of Creation” Artifact tint with each class, I felt inspired to create a set of Nightmare-touched Transmogrification kits.
Dagger + off-hand for Shadow; Damnation for Holy; Twisted Visage for Disc. The Netherlord’s Staff of Summoning and Abracadaver also look great with this outfit.
Returning to Darkmoon Isle after having quested through Val’sharah, its gloomy Gilnean landscape struck me as being quite Nightmare-like.

59) Serene Lotus

Crown of the Fire Festival, Replica Virtuous shoulders robe & belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Drape of the Twins, Golden Lotus tabard
The Golden Lotus Tabard is one of my favorites not just from Pandaria, but from all the available tabards.
This is the blindingly obvious outfit for a cloth-wearer to use with this tabard.

58) Loa-Seeker

Tread-Bind Spaulders, Forlorn Loa-Binder Robe, Laughing Skull Waistguard, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sacrificial Blade + Steamscar Vessel/Stanchion of Primal Instinct
Kazithra makes another appearance because I wanted to make a kit using this Warlords off-hand model, and it seemed somehow more suited to a Shadow Priest than to a Fire Mage.
Although, being Shu’halo, she still primarily worships and draws power from An’she, Mu’sha, and the ancestors, Kazithra is nevertheless keenly curious about the mysterious Loa spirits venerated by the Trolls.

57) Oracle Moth

L-R: Vestments of the Oracle (Priest), Enigma Robes (Mage), Doomcaller’s Robes (Warlock)

Nightvale Mantle, Vestments of the Oracle, Apothecary’s Waistband, Gloves of the Messiah, Infernoweave Boots, Scarlet Filigreed Doublet
I’ve loved these insect wing robes from the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj class quests for years, so I got Kaohana hers not long after she reached level 90 in Mists. I only just recently finally got around to farming the Brood of Nozdormu rep to get them for my Mage and Warlock, however.
Although I made a kit using these robes for Kaohana as soon as she got them, I needed to dress her in them again to make a collection with the Mage and Warlock. This kit is quite similar to that first outfit.
For visual consistency in showing the collection of outfits for all three classes, I used the Orb of the Sin’dorei to take some of the screenshots of this oufit.

56) Silver Shadows

Demon Warding Halo, Mantle of the Unknowing, Royal Apothecary Robe, Belt of the Night Sky, Cobalt-Threaded Gloves + Wristwraps of the Grieving Prophet, Communal Stave
And it’s back to the shadowy version of the Communal staff because in the process of making Kaohana’s previous kit, it occurred to me that these Ulduar Priest Tier recolor shoulders would coordinate very nicely with it. Then I liked how these Azsuna quest set items looked with the shoulders and staff.

55) Moonbeam

Crown of the Fire Festival, Pauldrons of Sufferance, Mooncloth Robe, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Wristguards of Subterranean Moss, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Communal Staff
I finally got around to acquiring these beautiful bracers! They’re a lookalike of the original T3 Priest bracers — and probably the only item out of that set that I will ever acquire, because I don’t have the gold-making chops to compete for the Priest T3 items when they show up on the Black Market Auction House.
The other inspiration point for this kit was that after having used the more Shadowy-toned version of the Communal staff, I wanted to use the more Holy-toned version for awhile.
As a whole, this outfit is a very classical Priest look; races that wear shoes will probably want the Sage’s boots.

54) Whispering Winds

Crown of the Fire Festival, Mantle of Time, Whisperwind Robes, Communal Sash, Safeguard Gloves, Communal Stave
This outfit is the white/beige version of the cloth Hour of Twilight dungeon set from late Cataclysm. I considered using the Cowl of Benevolence with this outfit because its colors coordinate very nicely… but dangit, I like to see my characters’ faces.
The Communal pieces are Priest-only items from the Garrison Salvage Yard (or making a Class Trial character). I thought about using Telubis’ Binding of Patience for the belt, but it clips rather badly on the Tauren model. Simply hiding the belt would also work just fine — the set belt matches the belt area on the robe. There are a number of nice alternatives for the staff.

53) Grimtotem Shadowtwister

Mantle of the Tribunal, Highborne Padded Armor, Ranger’s Sash, Colorful Kilt, Vonica’s Gauntlets, Staff of the Four Golden Coins/Tarnished Gutgore Ripper + Aboriginal Rod
This outfit for the ex-Grimtotem Shadow Priest Kazithra is inspired by that of the Grimtotem Geomancers, who are wearing the same chestpiece with the leather Mystic Sarong.
The Aboriginal Rod is one of a small selection of off-hand items that look like staves, thus allowing a caster to emulate Gandalf’s sword/dagger + staff combat mode.
After Alonsus Faol initially presented to Kaohana the three Artifact weapon choices, she made an agreement with Kazithra that the older woman would be the one to collect the Shadow Artifact.

52) Netherlight Sun Priest

Whisperwind Spaulders, Spelltwister’s Grand Robe, Sash of Mortal Desire, Brewer’s Gloves*, Ogre Mage Staff
The Tauren Sun Priests at the Netherlight Temple conclave are wearing the Ulduar Druid tier robe & gloves. This works well from a lore perspective because the Tauren priesthood is a very recent offshoot of Tauren druidism, but it doesn’t work so well for Transmogrification. This Mists crafted robe seemed to me to be the most similar aesthetic in cloth; its colors recall the Phaelia’s Vestments of the Sprouting Seed recolor of the Valorous Nightsong robe.

51) Kamaei’s Noble Heritage

Firewool Shoulderpads, Noblewoman’s Finery, Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle, Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Bracers of the Black Dream
I was playing around with ideas for other outfits to make using this skirt, and this combination caught my fancy.

50) Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt

Lightning Infused Mantle, Arachnidian Armor, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Runed Spell-Cuffs, Captain Sanders’ Shirt
Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt and the Lightning Infused Mantle are the only pieces of this lovely recolor of the classic Vanilla “Devout” set. I came up with the core concept for this outfit — combining this kilt & shoulders with this chestpiece — as a “Warlock Fashion Disaster” about four and a half years ago.
It is a delightful coincidence that this outfit coordinates so perfectly with the default appearance of Light’s Wrath!

49) Communal Regalia

The Communal set is the gear that a Priest is shown wearing on the new character selection screen. It is obtained in-game from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.

48) Hallows Chamberlain

Duskhallow Mantle, Consortium Combatant’s Robes, Black Belt of Knowledge, Silver-Thread Gloves, Starrgo’s Walking Stick
It’s really only the orange and black color combination that makes this outfit sort of Hallow’s End-ish. This robe style also comes in red, green, blue, and purple (I wish that it came in yellow and pink, too!), and these accessories (except the staff) would look just as good with any of the other colors.

47) Forbidden Knowledge

Shoulderpads of Twisted Fate (LFR), Fel-Infused Hauberk & Cinch, Wandering Healer’s Kilt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Terokk’s Shadowstaff
I like the cloth Demon Invasions tunic and belt, but I needed some different shoulders — to my eye, the set shoulder model just doesn’t look good on Tauren. I’d been wanting to use these T14 Mage-lookalike shoulders in a kit for my Priest, and the colors are perfect! I also wanted a skirt instead of trousers, and of the options I had avaliable, this was what I liked best.

46) Queen of Sheba

Tenderheart Shoulders, Robes of the Battleguard, Sash of Mortal Desire, Darkweave Breeches, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Glowing Magical Bracelets, Rich Purple Shirt, Telmor Crystal Staff
Another variation on the bright robe against a dark background theme. With the option to hide shoulders having become available in Patch 7.0, I tried hiding the shoulders for this kit — but it just looked better to me with these shoulders than with no shoulders.

45) Miss Starshine

Starfire Tiara*, Ternary Mantle, Blue Linen Vest, Astralaan Belt, Crimson Silk Pantaloons, Rotting Handwraps + Sage’s Bracers, Buccaneer’s Boots, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Wand of Arcane Potency, Regal Star
This hat, alas, is no longer available, having disappeared when Warlord Zaela took over Upper Blackrock Spire. Perhaps it might show up on the Black Market Auction House eventually? I didn’t spend all that time farming for it before Warlords launched to not ever use it, though, and stars are always in style for summer celebrations.

44) Misty Morning

Heroes’ Crown of Faith, Rebirth Spaulders, Fireflash Robes, Repurposed Twilight Girdle, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Splintering Greatstaff
I discovered the core concept of this kit, the shoulders + robe combination, when I was designing an outfit to go with the Warlords-crafted mace & off-hand book as part of the original Savage Blood Fashion Parade. When I got around to actually making the kit though, I decided to use this staff instead of the Warlords-crafted weapons.

43) Sumptuous Ceremony

Elementalist Skullcap, Duskhallow Mantle, Sumptuous Robes, Contender’s Satin Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Arakkoa Divining Rod, Shadowtome (1-630)
That the Duskhallow Mantle was the perfect set of shoulders to wear with this robe was immediately obvious. The rest of the kit took a bit of trial and error. It does look fantastic with the Shado-Pan hat, but pairing anything red and black with that particular hat is finally starting to feel cliche to me.
Only chestpiece, leggings, and helm pieces exist for this coloration of the Draenor-crafted armor. The primary use of the patterns for these items, which are not upgradable, is leveling the crafting skill itself. I like this dark coloration of this robe style better than the dark coloration of the stage 3 Hexweave robe, though.

42) Mystical Dragons

Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle (Priest only), Hexweave Robe (2-655), Abandoned Zandalari Firecord (LFR), Replica Virtuous Gloves, Ice Cream Churner
I love the soft colors of this version of the robe — it’s definitely my favorite of the three. It also makes a great combination with these fun crafted shoulders from Mists.

41) Hex’d Solace

Pauldrons of the Solace-Giver, Hexweave Robe Belt & Cloak (1-640), Black Mageweave Gloves, Staff of Athen’a
I picked up these shoulders while farming Karazhan for something else. I almost just vendored them, as I’m not all that fond of the set they actually belong to. The colors reminded me of the stage 1 Hexweave items, though, and when I tried the combination, I liked it.
