A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Blood Elf Rogue. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).
28) Omen of the Dark Hour
Blighthound Master’s Hood, Shoulderpads of the Forgotten Gate (N), Tunic of the Dark Hour, Refurbished Demolisher Gear Belt, Warpscale Leggings, Ironpelt Mitts, Ghost Walker Treads, Cobra Shortblade
The combination of medium and dark blues and maroons shading to browns in this chestpiece and pants really appealed to me.
I wanted to do a daggers kit for a change, so I set up Kelisanna’s Subtlety spec. Subtlety was her specialization of choice right up until the announcement that Combat would be reworked & renamed into Outlaw; the idea of being a spy or a sneaky thief who only kills when necessary & unavoidable appeals to me more than being an outright Assassin does.
27) Girl Genius
Tactical Headgun, Gypsy Tunic, Felshroud Belt, Bladefang Legguards, Softfinger Grips, Vision-Tainted Treads, White Linen Shirt, Skullstone Hammer* + Supposed Mace/Arclight Spanner + Tork Wrench*
Scanning through my 1H weapon collection with other characters, seeing this wrench-styled mace reminded me that I’d been wanting to make my Rouge an outfit loosely modeled after Agatha Heterodyne for ages — I first imagined this outfit concept as
a “Girl Genius” Hallow’s End Costume for my Mage way back in 2009.
26) Gold Digger
Stylin’ Jungle Hat, Prospector’s Chestpiece, Ruffian Belt*, X-52 Pilot’s Leggings, Pirate Sinker’s Gloves + Cranefeather Bindings, Rapscallion Boots, Shovel of Mercy, Garden Hoe
Having done a kit with the one Stylin’ leather hat, now I needed to do a kit with the other.
25) Stylin’ Songbird
Stylin’ Purple Hat, Songbird Blouse, Ruffian Belt*, X-52 Pilot’s Leggings, Rope-Grip Gloves, Rapscallion Boots
This hat and chestpiece are an obvious combination, perfect for when one’s Rogueish purpose for being on the prowl is to break as many hearts as possible.
The red stripes on the pants do detract from the effect, but at least they’re not very visible in a straight-on front or back view.
24) Sin’dorei Duelist
Terokk’s Mask, Silvermoon Tunic, Pilgrim’s Belt, Ghostclaw Leggings, Bonechewer gloves & boots, Dazzling Mithril Rapier
A very classic look for a Blood Elf Rogue.
23) Vrykul Swordmaiden
Blighthound Master’s Hood, Hateful Gladiator’s Leather Spaulders, Overgrowth Cutter Vest & Breeches, Belt of the Raptor, Oilrag Handwraps* + Cranefeather Bindings, Kafa Leather Boots, Dragonsaw Boneblade
There are so many good piratey swords that aren’t the Dreadblades that I was having trouble choosing which one to use next. So instead of doing something piratey, I decided to build an outfit around this combination of shoulders & chestpiece. The rich brown Overgrowth Cutter variation is my favorite color of this particular style of Warlords quest reward leather, and I’d previously noticed how nicely these shoulders matched it.
During Warlords, I concluded that the Shadowmoon Cowl was my favorite hood style so far, and I wished that it were available in brown or black leather. This Legion leather hood matches the style of the Shadowmoon Cowl pretty closely, and it is available in both brown and black. Hurrah!
I’ve specified the bracers because these gloves are so short on the wrist that they need the tiniest possible bracers for the bracers not to show.
22) DeMeza’s Rival
Netherstorm Eyepatch, Burnt Leather Vest, Burning Blade Devotee’s Cinch, Bluegill Breeches*, Ranger Gloves* + Bracers of Determined Resolve, Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Revilgaz’s Cutlass
Oh, it is a lovely thing to be a Pirate Queen!
21) Dread Admiral
Fleet Commander’s Hat, Dread-Rider Shoulders, Nobleman’s Coat & Pantaloons, Burning Blade Devotee’s Cinch, Bandit Gloves, Rapscallion Boots
This rather formal outfit will be just the first of many pirate-themed kits inspired by the Outlaw Rogue Artifact weapon, the Dreadblades Fate & Fortune.
Although the outfit looks nice without shoulders, it somehow didn’t feel quite right for an Admiral to not have epaulets.
20) Pumpkin Carver
Bonechewer Skincloak, Relentless Gladiator’s Leather Spaulders, Hardened Tongue Tunic, Ruffian Belt, Scouting Trousers, Bandit Gloves, Rapscallion Boots, Blade of the Prime, Electrowing Dagger (N)
Many of the Wrath PvP shoulder designs are quite nice. Fortunately for the PvP-averse, such as myself, the various currency redesigns that have occurred in the patches and expansions since then have resulted in those items now being available for gold.
Although the Combat Rogue Artifact weapon is a pair of swords, Kelisanna has not yet been to the Broken Isles, and her best weapon is still a dagger. I’ve put her dagger in her off-hand for this kit, though, because the Blade of the Prime is such a big honking Final Fantasy-esque weapon that having it in her off hand, with the smaller dagger in her main hand, seemed terribly improperly balanced.
19) Shadow Insurgent
Bloody Bandanna, Shadow Heart Spaulders (LFR), Nether Shadow Tunic, Shifting Sash of Midnight, Ceremonial Leather Loincloth, Fuzzy Gloves + Insidious Bands, Sandals of the Insurgent, Dagger of the Horde Vanguard, Quickblade of the Horde Vanguard
This kit owes a great deal to an outfit contributed by Zhau@Hellfire-EU to my “These Boots were Made for Mogging” event three years ago. Zhau’s idea was better than my own designs!
18) Teal Farstrider
Clefthoof Cover, Fizzy Spaulders, Rigid Tunic, Pilgrim’s Belt, Explorer’s Leggings, Clefthoof Gloves, Cenarion Expedition Boots, Dreadblade, Stung
The bottom half of this kit is a collection of Outland quest rewards; alas, the leather chestpiece and belt worn by the Farstrider NPCs are not available for players. The chestpiece and shoulders I’ve chosen have accent stripes that pick up on the blue-green color, and if the brown isn’t quite right to match the pants, at least they coordinate well with each other.
Mantle of Autumn, Sentinel Breastplate & Girdle, Earthsoul Britches, Ranger Gloves + Vendetta Bindings, Bonechewer Shredboots, Heavenly Breeze, Quicksilver Blade, Razorcrystal Blade
When this sword fell out of a Salvage Yard box, I almost immediately wanted to pair it with this lovely Cataclysm-era cloak. I’d been wanting to use this cloak in a kit for some time, but there didn’t seem much to pair it with beyond the obvious similarly-colored Replica Vestments of the Virtuous or Lawbringer Armor. The Razorcrystal Blade is an agility sword, so I decided that my Rogue should get it because it would actually be useful to her. She also happened to have this nicely matching dagger, and these coordinating bracers. The shoulders from the BC recolor of Druid T1 were a pretty natural choice. What surprised me, though, was that I also wanted the pants from that set to bring in more of the light green from the cloak.
16) Supple Bard
Swashbuckler’s Eyepatch, Spaulders of Determined Resolve, Supple Vest & Leggings (1-640), Wolf Rider’s Belt, Bard’s gloves & boots, Tura’aka’s Clipped Wing, Lightning Dagger
Warlords brought us a few more options for maroon leather with the stage 1 Supple chestpiece and pants.
Savage Blood required: 0
15) Silver Covenant Razor
Supple Shoulderguards Waistguard & Gloves (all 3-670), Lo’ap’s Tunic of Muck Diving, Leggings of the Sly, Crafty’s Gaiters, Steelforged Dagger (1-630)
This kit is an expression of my fervent, yet likely never-to-be-fulfilled wish that High Elves would become a playable race for the Alliance.
Savage Blood required: 90
14) Femme Fatale
Rhinestone Sunglasses/Swashbuckler’s Eyepatch, Shoulderpads of the Silvermoon Retainer, Scouting Tunic, Indomitable Belt, Dellot’s Leggings, Fuzzy Gloves + Scouting Bracers, Rapscallion Boots, Stylish Black Shirt, Dawnblade, Skettis Curved Blade
Sometime during the first half of 2015, I found a pair of Rhinestone Sunglasses on the AH for the surprisingly reasonable price of 500 gold. There’s not much in the way of pink in leather; only the maroon Bard’s set and the mauve Bonechewer set come even close. After contemplating those options, I decided that it would be better just to let the Rhinestone Sunglasses sparkle against a background of sleek black.
We all know that the Exodar is a disco (right?), but Sin’dorei are not exactly welcome there, so I boogied down in the Shattrath Residential District instead.
13) Shadow Fox
Dreghood Cowl, Frostwolf Scout’s Spaulders, Ghost Fox chest gloves & boots, Pyramid Embossed Belt, Shadow-Gorged Legguards, Scavenged Rotor Blade, Rune Sword
This kit was so dark and sneaky-looking that it just didn’t feel complete without the hooded mask.
12) Shado-Pan Assassin
Replica Shado-Pan Helment, Shoulderpads of the Silvermoon Retainer, Scouting Tunic, Ruffian Belt*, Nightslayer Pants, Bandit Gloves, Defiler’s Lizardhide Boots, Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Amber Slicer of Klaxxi’ves, Wind Reaver’s Dagger of Quick Strikes
The shirt is an essential component of this outfit because it fills in a gap between the sleeves and the gloves.
The Bandit Belt would be a suitable replacement for the Ruffian Belt.
Why, yes, I did do Klaxxi rep with my Rogue just so that I could have both styles of Mantid trophy dagger to use in this kit.
11) Desert Fox
Red Cartographer’s Armor with Tawnyhide Cape, Rustic Workman’s Shirt, Bangalash’s Claw, and Business Finisher
Kelisanna is the only character other than Kamalia who has completed the entire Harrison Jones questline in Uldum — everyone else has stalled out at Schnottz’s Landing, unable to countenance working for these particular bad guys. As a result, she managed to collect a full set of late-Cataclysm quest reward armor — something very few of my other characters have done, because I don’t usually do much of Twilight Highlands, either.
10) Falcon Watch Lookout
Bonechewer set with Pilgrim’s Belt, Dreadblade, and Rune Sword
Why such an obviously Sin’dorei-styled set is named after a clan of orcs completely baffles me.
I adore the unique mauve color of this chestpiece and leggings.
9) Farstrider Sentry
Cutthroat’s Mantle & Boots, Burnt Leather Vest, Sentinel Girdle, Ghostclaw Leggings, Fletcher’s Gloves, Scarlet Filigreed Shirt
It didn’t take long for Keli to tire of being a punk. I didn’t feel like just putting her back into her default Ninja set, and I hadn’t made her a set with these fancy Ghostlands quest reward pants yet.
8) Hit the Road, Punk
Cutthroat’s Mantle, Grizzly Jerkin, Batskin Belt, Tribal Pants, Nimble Leather Gloves + Plaguehound Armbands, Treads of Banshee Bells
Rogues are very much the punks of Azeroth, delighting in making trouble for everyone else. At first, I thought I’d use the “jeweled hairband” style for a Blood Elf punk, as it looks quite wild and unkempt to me. As I flicked through the stylebook at the Barbershop, however, this super-short hairstyle seemed even more punky — especially in combination with the bright cherry-red haircolor. Goblins and Gnomes really have the best “punk” hairstyles in the game.
7) Ninja III
Cloaked Shoulderpads, Dusky Leather Armor, Ruffian Belt*, Scouting Trousers, Bandit Gloves & Boots, Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Balanced Heartseeker, Dazzling Mithril Rapier
Kelisanna got over her dislike of how the Bandit Boots looked on her legs, acquired some new shoulders, and leveled up enough to use the rapier. This will probably be her default outfit from now on, though it will pick up a couple more variations as she levels up enough to use different sneaky-looking hats.
The “stealth stand” pose of most races looks pretty cool, but it’s hard to see and take pictures of because of how “stealth” in WoW is really an invisibility spell. Fortunately, the Red Flying Disc (and Flying Carpet) mounts use the same pose.
See the Druids page for the “Ninja II” variation of this outfit.
6) Gypsy Bandit
Cloaked Shoulderpads, Gypsy tunic & pants, Ruffian Belt*, Bandit gloves & boots
The Bandit or Imposing belts would be good substitutes for the Ruffian Belt.
5) Festival Minstrel
Cutthroat’s Mantle, Gypsy Tunic, Bard’s trousers gloves & boots, Sentinel Girdle, Tranquillien Champion’s Cloak, White Linen Shirt
A Bard’s set variation for the Winter Veil holiday.
4) Blood and Ashes
Cutthroat’s Mantle, Burnt Leather Vest, Ruffian Belt*, Nightscape Pants, Bard’s gloves & boots, Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Balanced Heartseeker, Stung
After having spent all that gold to acquire these shoulders for Kelisanna, I definitely wanted to use them in another outfit.
The Bandit Cinch is a suitable replacement for the Ruffian Belt.
3) Deadly Minstrel
Cutthroat’s Mantle, Bard’s set, Batskin Belt, Pink Mageweave Shirt
During October 2012, JD Kenada invited us to join him in observing Breast Cancer Awareness Month by putting together our best pink Transmogrification Template Kits. There isn’t much in the way of pink in leather, so it was fortunate that Kelisanna already had most of the maroon Bard’s set. Acquiring the Cutthroat’s Mantle nearly bankrupted House Dawnstrider, but it is one of the best sets of shoulders to wear with the Bard’s set.
2) Ninja I
Green Tinted Goggles, Stained Shadowcraft Spaulders, Dusky Leather Armor, Ruffian Belt*, Scouting Trousers, Bandit Gloves, Scouting boots, Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt
The Scouting Tunic is a nice enough piece, but the Dusky Leather Armor is a little sexier 😉 I’m not sure if the Leatherworking pattern to make the Dusky Leather Armor is still available in the game or not, but Leatherworkers who already have the pattern can certainly still craft it.
I think the Bandit Boots look a little odd on Blood Elves, so Kelisanna’s stuck with the plainer Scouting boots.
1) Light Drinker
The Light Drinker set is the gear that a Rogue is shown wearing on the new character selection screen. It is obtained in-game from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.
Kelisanna is also wearing the Bloody Bandanna.
