Priest Tier set items from Burning Crusade‘s fabled Karazhan raid.

Incarnate Raiment; Gladiator’s Satin Armor
Because the shoulder style is the same, for a long time I thought the PvP style was just a recolor of the raid style. I didn’t realize how different the robes were until I put them next to each other!

~*~*~

Incarnation of Light

Crown of the Fire Festival, Light-Mantle of the Incarnate, Aspiring Aspirant’s Drape, Robes of the Incarnate, Warmongering Gladiator’s Satin Gloves, Cincture of Will, Light’s Wrath (PvP, default tint)
I have fond memories of Karazhan, and I have always thought that this set is very pretty.

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

A Green Dragon Princess


Dreamweave Circlet, Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Gladiator’s Mooncloth Robe, Sandswept Sandals, Inscribed Serpent Staff

Touch of Ruby

Rhinestone Sunglasses, Aurora Mantle, Mankrik’s Old Wedding Garments, Silver-Thread Sash, Stoneweaver Leggings, Widow’s Clutches + Bands of Indwelling, Boots of the Incorrupt, Thousand Bandage Drape, Staff of Divine Infusion
The Karazhan Priest Tier bracers and boots are important enough components of the overall look of this kit that I felt like it merited inclusion in this collection.

~*~*~

Vestments of Transcendence

Crowned Transcendence


Vestments of Transcendence with Nightvale Cowl, Cloak of Tranquil Clouds, and Light’s Wrath (upgraded, 4th tint)
The Transcendence set fits in with the Bastion aesthetic so nicely!
I love how the Broken Isles halo looks framed by the curves of the Transcendence shoulders.
The colors of this set also look beautiful with the Crown of the Righteous, Empyrial Cosmic Crown, and Crown of Everlasting Fortune.

The beautiful crafted Primal Mooncloth set from Burning Crusade is a recolor of the Classic Prophecy set from Molten Core.

~*~*~

Book of Prophecies



Vestments of Prophecy with Gossamer Headpiece and Light’s Wrath (Hidden, 1st tint)
Some combinations of Tier set and Legion Artifact weapon were just meant to be.
I have always been covetous of the NPC-exclusive recolor of the Prophecy Mantle worn by Kosta Dawnchaser at Thunder Cleft in Krasarang Wilds — but I didn’t know the robe details well enough to recognize the differences in the robe style until I stood them side-by-side to take the pictures.

Thanks to easy PvE ways to gain Marks of Honor during Legion, I was able to obtain the PvP versions of the Attire of Piety, the Warlords of Draenor Hellfire Citadel tier set.

Wild Gladiator’s Satin Armor, Warmongering Gladiator’s Satin Armor
The shoulders are available in a version that can be used by any of the cloth-wearing classes, so I have used them quite a bit.
I am also very fond of the little bell on the waistband, though since it is not a complete belt, it is somewhat challenging to use. Because I consider the belt to be another signature item from this set, I’ve also included outfits featuring the belt in this collection.

During Mists of Pandaria, I made a goal of healing at least some of each raid tier with a character of each of the healing classes. I accomplished that goal — though with my Priest I only healed as Holy; Discipline is her “DPS” or “questing” spec.

Guardian Serpent Regalia (N), Regalia of the Exorcist (LFR), Vestments of the Ternion Glory (LFR)
I did all of my actual raiding in LFR; in later expansions, I went back to solo-farm the first tier on Normal.
