After I’d gotten Kaelyla, Kaelinda, Kamalia, and Kerisa fully kitted out in Primal Storms gear, I figured I might as well pick up the Plate set, too. So I dusted off my Warrior, who’d been sitting in Dazar’alor at level 46, for the job. I didn’t push it especially hard; I leveled her to 60 over five days of doing A Time To Reflect and Primal Storms. That puts me at 8 level 60s for Shadowlands.

Yo!, said Kaumaleia, why have you not put me in the blue dragon wings yet, eh?
But Kam already used this headpiece with these wings…
SO? You’ll probably do it again with Kaelyla, just wait and see!
You’re really going to go bikini plate for this?
Well, duh — it’s totally Dragon Lady style!
And she did have a point.

This series of posts began because I set myself a goal to document new Transmogrification outfits in a more timely fashion. As soon as I create a new outfit, I write it up in a draft post. As the weekend approaches, I start working on taking fashion screenshots, processing them, and updating “Things my [Class] Wears” posts. On Sunday — though not every Sunday — I publish the collection of my recent efforts. Then I begin the next “Sunday on the Promenade” draft post.

Occasionally, I have ideas for themed Transmogrification collections that take several months to completely assemble. Thus, some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of such a themed Transmogrification collection.

Here’s what my kiddo settled on (for now) for our Night Elf Druid once I showed him how to Save his outfit:

Eonar’s Breath

Totem Matriarch’s Headdress, Firebird’s Mantle (LFR), Emerald Wings of Awakening, Firebird’s Tunic (LFR), Jade’s Lovely Shirt, Binder’s Chain of Unending Summer (LFR), Talon Branch, Nettlehusk Barrier
The wood-textured sculpts of the shoulders and the panels on the skirt of the robe, along with the bright green feathers, made this Mists tier set an easy choice to go with the green wings. In fact, after I’d created this kit with Kam, I saw a Dark Iron Dwarf Shaman in Oribos who was also wearing these wings and this robe together. I chose wooden weapons to continue the Green Dragonflight thematic motifs.

Sailor Oribos



Radiant Court Hood, Celestial Observer’s Constellations, Celestial Observer’s Starshroud, Windchanneller’s Tunic, Winterborn Handwraps, Redeemed Inquisitor’s Sash, Choral Leggings, Radiant Court Slippers, Scimitar of Seven Stars (LFR), Heart of the Phoenix (Hidden, first tint)
An attempt to create an Anime Magical Girl style of outfit. Kateleina, with her hair bleached white to fit the Magical Girl motif, wanted to model.

I get why the third and fourth colors of the 9.0 Venthyr Cloth set are purple and yellow — for making Warlock and Priest kits, of course! — but I still kind of wish that Cloth was like the other Armor types, for which the third and fourth colors of the 9.0 sets are magenta/silver and green/brown and have coordinating colorations in the 9.1 Venthyr sets.

Harvest of Souls

Sinfall Venthyr Hood, Soulbreaker’s Burnished Mantle, Rogue Necromancer’s Drape, Robes of the Black Harvest, Soulbreaker’s Burnished Sash, Footfalls of Memories, Fandral’s Flamescythe (H)
Naturally, I needed to make a Warlock kit with the shoulders from the purple version of the 9.0 Venthyr Cloth kit.

Power Infusion

Collar of Cho’gall, Soulbreaker’s Court Mantle, Twisted-Ritualist’s Shawl, Conqueror’s Robe of Sanctification, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Felcast Gloves, Soulbreaker’s Court Sash, Treads of the False Oracle, Light’s Wrath (PvP, default tint)
Naturally, I needed to make a Priest kit with the shoulders from the yellow version of the 9.0 Venthyr Cloth kit.

About a year and a half ago, I began allowing my oldest to play WoW occasionally. I made him his own character, a male Orc Hunter. I also let him play with my Night Elf Druid, thinking that shapeshifting and birdie flying would be fun for him.

An evening or two ago, he wanted to change how his Orc looked, so I took him to a Barbershop and let him play with it. He thought the different hairstyles and especially the tattoos were very funny! Then he wanted to play with changing his clothes, since he has occasionally watched while I’ve been making a new Mog for one or another of my characters. Problem was, his Orc has no money. So the next time he was playing with the Night Elf Druid, he wanted to change her clothes. I let him have at it, and this is what he came up with:

Some of these pieces are what she was already wearing; he mostly played around with the helm, cloak, and shoulders.

It’s been about two months since I finally got started on Korthia.
Today, I finished collecting the Korthia questing versions of all of the 9.1 Covenant sets.
I’m about halfway through Revered with Death’s Advance.
I have 14K Stygia, which is enough to buy both of the Death’s Advance Venthyr sets as soon as I ding Exalted… but I also want the Death’s Advance Night Fae set. I am dreading having to just flat out grind the remaining 4K Stygia for it.

The worst part of Shadowlands, for me, has been the punishing Stygia mechanics. Even with completely ignoring Ve’nari as I did, Stygia is so agonizingly slow to get, and you need so much of it for the Death’s Advance Cosmetic sets, and you lose so much of it when you die in the Maw that it is very, very, very discouraging. Before Patch 9.1, you got 20 Stygia every time a soul entered the Soulkeeper while doing Return Lost Souls, so you could get 400 Stygia per week and that felt like a decent reward for the time invested doing the quest. Then Patch 9.1 removed that, and although I understand why the introduction of the repeatable version of the Return Lost Souls caused the devs to make that change, I still haven’t forgiven them for doing it.

At the time that I first went to Korthia, I wrote, “I think I’ll go do the 9.0 Covenant Campaigns for Night Fae and Necrolords with Kaelinda — putting Chapters 5-9 of Korthia on hold until I do — so that I can do each of the Covenant story-advancing chapters of Korthia as a member of the appropriate Covenant”. Then I spent the past two months feeling completely psychologically blocked about playing through the 9.0 Necrolords and Night Fae Campaigns again. It took being halfway through Revered and realizing that if I wanted to get any Death’s Advance reputation from doing the rest of the Korthia Campaign, then I needed to start working on it for me to finally push past the block. I did Chapters 3 & 4 of Necrolords, then swapped Covenants and did Chapter 3 of Night Fae yesterday night. Now if I can just keep going…

So, I’ve still got to do the Korthia and Zereth Mortis story Campaigns. I’d like to get a few pieces (definitely belt & robe, perhaps also cloak pants and boots?) of the Sepulcher of the First ones set via items purchased with Sandworn Relics and upgraded using the Creation Catalyst. I have 54K Anima left of Kyrian Cosmetics to acquire. I’ve also got to finish the 9.0 Night Fae Campaign with my Druid (she’s stalled out at the beginning of Chapter 5).
Of course, my current state of lagging has arisen almost entirely from my own play decisions, which have in turn been influenced by the circumstances of my out-of-Azeroth life. I’ve learned from the last several expansions, though, that I’ll need to stay in Shadowlands until these goals are Done, because if I leave, I won’t come back later to complete them.

But then, it might not be so bad to already have the first round of catch-up mechanics in place by the time I finally get to the Dragon Isles 😛

BTH has decided to come back to WoW for a little while to check out Dragonflight. It was fun to run around with him as he leveled through Shadowlands using Party Sync — even with the times when I had to sit idle while he was in a different phase — and to try to remember how to heal with a Resto Shaman. There was much fiddling with my UI to try to figure out the optimal place for my party frames.

Covenant Alliance


Aspiring Aspirant’s Hood, Korthian Caretaker’s Mantle, Halo of the Selfless, Azure Dusk Vestments, Faewoven Handwraps, Korthian Caretaker’s Sash, Faewoven Leggings, Wild Gladiator’s Treads of Cruelty, Replica Lion’s Fang, Newly Departed Codex
With the lore segue phase of Patch 10.0 set to begin this week, I decided to bring Kaelyla home from the Shadowlands. She will experience the Alliance RP for and collect Cloth Cosmetics from the Dragonflight pre-patch events. She will, with Kamalia, be one of my first toons to embark for the Dragon Isles. For the occasion, it seemed appropriate to make an “Alliance Blue” ensemble using mostly Shadowlands items.

Sunken Garden




Crown of the Seducer (LFR), Deeptide Amice, Vileweave Robes, Deeptide Cinch, Shattrath Jumpers, Plundered Oracle Fin Staff
A combination I passed through on the way to Khrysanthemina’s Hallows End outfit and liked enough to jot down for later.

Battle Magistrix of Quel’Thalas



Brutal Gladiator’s Silk Armor with Squire’s Shirt, Junglestrider Sandals, and Grand Magister’s Staff of Torrents
As well as being a renowned botanist (see her first appearance in Blood Elf Mage #127), Kaelinda’s mother was also a Mage of moderate power and skill who came quickly to her homeland’s defense when the Scourge invaded.
While doing the Heritage of the Sin’dorei questline, Kaelinda’s clothing temporarily changed into the Brutal Gladiator’s Silk Armor when she was participating in the illusions of past events.

I picked up the last item I wanted from the Soulbreaker’s Burnished Vestments set last week. I don’t have the full set, but I do have all the pieces I most wanted for Mogging mix-and-match. So now I am Done with Venthyr Travel Network Broken Mirrors. Hooray!
I only need two more pieces from the Night Fae Korthia set and two more pieces from the Necrolords Korthia set. In other words, I only need a Cosmetics quest to show up one more time for each of those Covenants, because with both Kaelinda and Kaelyla on the job, I can get two pieces each time one of those quests is available.
Kaelinda and Kaelyla paid back earlier gifts of Anima from Kaurinka to help them finish upgrading Covenant Sanctum features, thus allowing Kaurinka to get her Queen’s Conservatory fully upgraded to Tier 5 and to purchase the Queen’s Conservatory recolor of the Oakheart set. Now I just need to push Kaurinka through the rest of the 9.0 Night Fae Campaign…

Doing the Korthia Cosmetic dailies and Venthyr Travel Network Broken Mirrors with both Kaelinda and Kaelyla has definitely helped me acquire Cosmetics faster. I’ve got three of the five Korthia sets completed — Kyrian and both Venthyr — and I’ve acquired 3/9 of the Soulbreaker’s Burnished Vestments, plus the Burnished versions of all three of the Venthyr backpieces. I’m glad that I waited until I had flying to begin doing Broken Mirrors, because even with the shortcuts of the Mirrors of the Travel Network itself, fighting through the mobs to get from the closest Network Mirror to each Broken Mirror location would have been so tedious.
Kaelyla also just completed the Night Courtier’s Regalia — Hooray, I am Done with Cloth 9.0 Night Fae Cosmetics! Now I just need 64K more Anima for my Kyrian Cloth & Mage Weapons shopping list…
And then whenever I manage to get done in Korthia, it’ll be off to Zereth Mortis to grind the Sandworn Relics and Cosmic Flux for getting Sepulcher of the First Ones items via the Creation Catalyst. I’ll get the belt just from doing the Zereth Mortis Campaign, of course. Of the rest of the set, I definitely want the robe; maybe also the cloak, boots, and pants.

Miss Lyanna II


Hat of the Second Sister, Vir’naal Spaulders, Demon Commander’s Drape, Vileweave Robes, Sailing Master’s Sash, Virulent Gravetreaders, Scepter of Celebras*
Modified version of an outfit I originally designed three years ago for Kalaneia (see Warlock #56).
Serendipitously also works surprisingly well as a Sinfall Venthyr kit.
This sash is Alliance-only; for Horde characters, the Normal version of Aqu’sirr’s Swirling Sash works almost as nicely.

Professor of Transfiguration II


Dazzling Spectacles/Hat of the First Sister, Mantle of the Tribunal, Horde Expeditionary Cloth Robe, Aqu’sirr’s Swirling Sash, Duskhaven Boots, Arcanist’s Wand, Shadowtome (stage 3)
While recording a new outfit idea in my Notebook perpetual draft post, I rediscovered this idea that I needed to do now because of its holiday item requirement. This kit is an update of Human Mage #43.
It would have been great to take pictures with the Magic Broom, but until the devs convert it into an item that can be learned into the Mount Journal, but only summoned during the holiday, like how holiday clothes are only usable during the appropriate holidays, I’m not going to bother with grinding it from either Tricky Treats or Headless Horseman satchels.
