Archive for the ‘Transmogrification’ Category

Late in 2010, when we were finishing up our first stay in Dalaran and anticipating the coming Cataclysm, I assembled “The Essential Dalaran Wardrobe”, a survey of the clothing worn by Dalaran-affiliated magic-users in and around Dalaran Crater and the satellite community of Ambermill, in Silverpine.

With Dalaran once again the hub city in Legion, I thought it appropriate to revisit the Dalarani and give their robes a proper Transmogrification treatment.

The Dalarani

Dalaran Wizard: Lesser Wizard’s Robe
These NPCs became Ambermill Witchaloks post-Cataclysm


Darkmist Wizard Hat, Elder Wizard’s Mantle, Lesser Wizard’s Robe, Serenity Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Mountainsage Sandals, Shadowvine Cloak of Infusion, Kirin Tor Tabard, Staff of Dominance
Other than the fancy staff, this is the basic wizard-on-the-street-corner look. The NPC shoulders are not available to players; the closest matches for players are the Elder Wizard’s Mantle I am wearing here or the Elder’s Mantle. Some of the NPCs are also wearing Heavy Linen Gloves.

Dalaran Mage: Darkmoon Robe
These NPCs became Ambermill Magisters post-Cataclysm


Researcher’s Mantle, Darkmoon Robe, Gossamer Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Elementalist Boots, Whelp Keeper’s Staff
Some very simple shoulders dress this outfit up just a little bit.

Dalaran Apprentice: Chromatic Robe/Manaweave Robe
These NPCs are absent post-Cataclysm


Manaweave Robe*/Chromatic Robe, Circle of Ossus, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Suspicious Slippers, Ley Staff*
This outfit is a bit of a cheat. The NPC outfit uses the leather Songbird Blouse with the skirt of the Chromatic Robe. The Chromatic Robe is common quality and thus non-Transmogrifiable. The nearest Transmogrifiable item is the Manaweave Robe — which was rewarded from a pre-Cataclysm Mage class quest chain and is no longer availabe (except perhaps for Blood Elves?).

Dalaran Watcher: Robes of Antiquity
These NPCs became Ambermill Watchers post-Cataclysm


Robes of Antiquity, High Councillor’s Sash, Zaetar’s Gloves, Replica Magister’s Boots, Helcular’s Other Rod, Kirin Tor Tabard
I tried some shoulders with this kit — I particularly liked the look of the Stiffened Corpse Shoulderpads — but in the end decided to leave them off.

Dalaran Summoner: Robe of the Magi
These NPCs are still present as Dalaran Summoners post-Cataclysm and can also be seen as a “Dalaran Citizen” in Legion Dalaran


Cyno’s Mantle of Sin, Robe of the Magi, Telubis’ Binding of Patience, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Slippers of Serenity, Ice Cream Churner, Kirin Tor Tabard
I don’t think the NPC outfit is particularly attractive, so I wanted to make a kit with this robe that I wouldn’t be embarrassed to be seen wearing.

Dalaran Theurgist: Black Mageweave Robe
These NPCs are absent from the Dalaran crater area post-Cataclysm, but can be seen as a “Dalaran Citizen” in Legion Dalaran


Hallowed Pauldrons, Black Mageweave Robe, Wizard’s Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Chelley’s Staff of Dark Mending
The NPC robe resembles the Necrology robe on the top and the Black Mageweave Robe on the bottom. Because the tabard covers much of the top of the robe, the Black Mageweave Robe is the best choice to endeavor to match these NPCs.
If I am remembering correctly, these NPCs not only carried a Priest-like staff, they also had Priest-like abilities.

Dalaran Spellscribe: Robe of the Moccasin
NPC image from Wowpedia; This NPC is absent post-Cataclysm


Magnificent Aeroglide Shoulderpads, Robe of the Moccasin, Nesingwary’s Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Warpstaff of Arcanum, Tabard of the Kirin Tor
This rare spawn NPC used to be the source of the Black Tabby pet. Now, that pet can only be found on the Black Market Auction House.
I thought about using these shoulders with the other black robe Kirin Tor outfits; they seemed the most appropriate for this one, though. The NPC belt isn’t available to players; Nesingwary’s Sash seemed to be the best replacement.

Dalaran Conjuror: Necrology Robes
These NPCs are absent post-Cataclysm


Amice of the Convoker, Necrology Robes, Wizard’s Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Battle Mage’s Baton, Kirin Tor Tabard
This outfit was one of my primary reasons for wanting the Necrology Robes.
For all that the portal to Dreadscar Rift is hidden away in the tunnels leading to the Underbelly, the wizards of Dalaran aren’t all as opposed to dark magics as they might outwardly claim. Prior to the Shattering, Dalaran Conjurors accompanied by voidwalkers could be found in the area near Ambermill and Dalaran Crater.

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.

Other Kirin Tor Outfits
Although these kits don’t specifically attempt to mimic the look of any Dalaran-associated NPCs, they do make use of the Kirin Tor tabards.

Kirin Tor of Dalaran

Theramore Arcanist’s Hat*, Mantle of Nimble Thought, Buccaneer’s Vest, Oracle Belt of Timeless Mystery, Khadgar’s Kilt of Abjuration, Soulcloth Gloves, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Drape of the Lithe, Cold Convergence, Kirin Tor Offensive Tabard
The more exact match between Dalaran’s banners and the Kirin Tor Offensive tabard, and the idea of making a purple and white Kirin Tor outfit, was my primary motivation for doing Isle of Thunder with Kaylynda.
I borrowed the idea of wearing these crafted white and purple shoulders from the Kirin Tor Quartermaster in Wrath-Dalaran.
The tabard and the staff make this an Alliance-only kit.

Magistrix of the Kirin Tor

Arcanist Crown, Elder Wizard’s Mantle, Sketh’lon Survivor’s Tunic, Magister’s Belt, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Jumanza Grips, Marshfang Boots, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Ward of the Violet Citadel, Tabard of the Kirin Tor
It was hard to get a good clear shot of the off-hand because of how badly it clips into the skirt in the idle standing pose.

Kirin Tor Outfits for the Other Armor Types

Dalaran Courier

Headhunter’s shoulders & belt, Darkmoon Vest, Cinderweb Leggings (H), Expedition Gloves, Bonechewer Shredboots, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Rolfsen’s Ripper
Some messages should not be transmitted magically and must still be carried by hand from the sender to the recipient.

Kirin Tor Element-Bender

Glimmering Mail Pauldrons, Skettis chestpiece belt & leggings, Battlecaller Gauntlets, Sparkleshell Sabatons, Cloak of Seething Hatred, Kirin Tor Tabard, Cudgel of Furious Justice, Protective Barricade of the Light
When Kamalia answered Khadgar’s summons to attend him at Dalaran-above-Karazhan, she wished to express her previous affiliation with and allegiance to the Kirin Tor.

Guardian of the Violet Tower


Jade Tiger Shoulders/Burden of Mortality (H), Glowing Breastplate of Truth, Uktar’s Belt of Chiming Rings/Girdle of Truth, Eldritch Reinforced Legplates, Sunsoul Gauntlets, Treads of the Penitent Man (H), Drape of the Violet Tower, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Bloodmaw Magus-Blade, Protective Barricade of the Light
I like the way this belt interacts with the tabard; the Girdle of Truth looks nice if you’d rather see the whole tabard.
With Uktar’s Belt, the Heroic Burden of Mortality was a little too much for the overall ensemble. With the Girdle of Truth, however, it looks quite nice.
The Sunsoul Gauntlets are the only Paladin-specific item in this kit. The Shattered Hand Gauntlets are a decent alternative for other plate-wearing classes.

The Battle for Azeroth may be coming, but for now, we are still dealing with the Legion. I still have lots to do in the Broken Isles — and even more Transmogrification ideas. Hallow’s End is over, so everyone who got dressed up for the holiday needed to change their clothes. It had been long enough since I changed some of the others’ clothes that I was getting bored of what they’d been wearing. Once I’d changed everyone else, I did the last two or three just so they wouldn’t be left out.

Illidari Matron

Illidari Shoulders & Boots, Prospector’s Chestpiece, Waistclasp of Unethical Power (LFR), Gloomtalon’s Spare Kilt, Fuzzy Gloves + Flame Juggler’s Armbands, Blade of Savagery
Because of this sword, I wanted to do a “Shivarra Matron” outfit for my Demon Hunter. The NPC outfit is quite unique, however — only the sword and shoulders are available as drops for players, and the shoulders are plate — so my PC outfit is a series of approximations at best.
I’ve had this outfit planned for quite awhile, but I had to wait until she was level 110 to make it because of the belt.

Dalaran Watcher

Robes of Antiquity, High Councillor’s Sash, Zaetar’s Gloves, Replica Magister’s Boots, Helcular’s Other Rod, Kirin Tor Tabard
I tried some shoulders with this kit — I particularly liked the look of the Stiffened Corpse Shoulderpads — but in the end decided to leave them off.

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.

Serendipitous Seraph

Warmongering Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Robes of the Guardian Saint, Astralaan Pants, Pyrotex Ignition Cloth + Cuffs of Unrelenting Anguish, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots
I’d made outfits for Kaelinda with the other three colors of this robe style, but I hadn’t used this color yet because I wanted to use The Stars’ Design, the Hidden appearance for Felo’melorn, with it. I’d been hoping that it would just drop for me in the course of ordinary Suramar zone and World questing, without having to “go back” to farm for it after I’d completed the zone storyline (including the 7.1 Insurrection story) — and lo and behold, it dropped.

Maleficent

Fel-Infused Helm, Hatefury Mantle, Robes of Necrotic Whispers, Enumerated Handwraps, Saltarello Shoes, Iceward Cloak
It struck me that this helm looked rather like the headdress of the villain from the Classic Disney rendition of Sleeping Beauty.

Ymirjar Battlelord

The Crusader’s Resolution, Raging Behemoth’s Shoulderplates (N), Carapace of Imbibed Flame (N), Verdigris Chain Belt, Legguards of Lost Hope (N), Taldaram’s Plated Fists (N), Blood-Soaked Saronite Stompers (N)
If Keija is going to be the Battlelord of the Valarjar, she might as well look the part (for a little while, at least).

Nifflevar Berserker

Brutish Shoulders, Barbaric Iron Breastplate, Earthswell Belt, Legplates of Dominion, Gauntlets of Enforcement, Loam-Stained Greaves, Nifflevar Bearded Axe, Lifeforce Hammer
This axe, a Northrend Vrykul Archaeology rare find, and this mace, which is crafted, have sufficiently similar styling that I’ve long thought that they ought to be used in a dual-wield kit together.

Justicar

Justicar Armor with Void-Warped Oshu’gun Mace, Aldori Legacy Defender, and Aldor Tabard
I finished the whole Draneor!Nagrand main storyline with Karaelia just so that I could have photo-ops with Yrel in the future.

Freezing Rain

Salt-Scorched Shoulderguard, Field Plate Armor, Replica Soulforge Belt, Legguards of the Emerald Brood (H), Flash Freeze Gauntlets (H), Life Force Chargers (H), Saber of the Ebon Blade
The Saber of the Ebon Blade is surprisingly bright and pretty, for a Death Knight weapon. The original appearance of the model was as the weapon wielded by Al’Akir in the Throne of Four Winds; it’s also used as the Sunsoul Sword that Paladins get from the Warlords Salvage Yard.

Storm Light

Warmongering Gladiator’s Ironskin Helm & Legguards, Poison Protocol Pauldrons (N), Spell Fencer’s Jacket, Brown Belt of Humbling Gravity, Frostwolf Mitts, Warmongering Gladiator’s Boots of Victory, Sonic Spear
I got this new chestpiece and thought it would look great with these white pants. It looks rather different on my Monk than it does on my Demon Hunter, who was the one who actually acquired it, though. If I tried the same combo of chestpiece, pants, and hat with my Demon Hunter, the rest of the items in the ensemble would probably end up being entirely different.

Dunestrider

Mask of the Unforgiven, Broodmother Armor, Eighty Silver Links, Warmongering Gladiator’s Leggings, Runic Leather Gauntlets, Marius’ Soles of Slaying, Cloak of the Shrouded Mists, Keen Marshfang Slicer
I’m not too fond of the pants that are in the set with this chestpiece — but these pants look great with it!

Guardian of Cenarius and G’Hanir

Cenarion Raiment with Belt of Cheapened Lives, Cloak of Enthralling Darkness, and Wildfury Greatstaff
The Cenarion belt has always seemed too bright, somehow. I like the overall effect better with this darker belt.

Finder of Unseen Paths

Gorrog’s Serene Gaze, Stormforged Shoulders, Trailseeker Vest & Greaves, Replica Beaststalker’s Belt & Pants, Talhide Lined-Gloves
I love the pretty gilded edging on this hood.
I wanted to use a long green cloak with this kit, but it clipped too badly with the quiver — as in, it almost completely covered it!

Runed Copper

Runed Copper set with Mantle of the Golden Forest and Engraved Boots
This is one of the first armor sets that a Blacksmith can learn to craft. It is mail, but the rest of the color schemes for this armor style are plate.

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.

If any of you, my dear readers, have kits that you’d like to share, I’d be happy to add you to the show! Just email me your picture(s), along with a list of the items in the outfit. I don’t regularly check my blog email, though, so if you’ve sent me an outfit, please make a comment on the most recent Sunday Mog Show post so that I know to check my blog email for your contribution.

Charlotte’s Robes

I like the netted sleeves and the gradient stripes on the skirt of this robe. I’m not so fond of the giant spider. I’ve used the tunic version quite a lot for Hallow’s End outfits, though.


Arachnidian Robe, Hibernal/Venomshroud Robe, Chan’s Imperial Robes, Watcher’s Tunic

~*~*~

Arachnidian Robe

Cloud Spinner

Arachnidian Robes, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Replica Virtuous Gloves + Leywalker Bracers, Slippers of Serenity, Used Bar Rag, Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard, Staff of Athen’a

First Mate Hat, Death Speaker Mantle*, Watcher’s Tunic, Clutch of Andros*, Nobleman’s Pantaloons, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Buccaneer’s Boots, Orange Martial Shirt, Dying Light

Fire Witch

Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Watcher’s Tunic, Braided Manastring Cinch, Vileweave Leggings, Black Mageweave Gloves + Elastic Wristguards, Saltarello Shoes, Amber Filigreed Doublet, Teebu’s Blazing Longsword, Igniter Rod

Bonfire Watcher

Last year at Hallow’s End, I went crazy making Horseman’s Helm kits for all of the plate-wearing characters in the Big Fourteen.

I love the Watcher’s Tunic for Hallow’s End, so this year, I’ve made Watcher’s Tunic kits for all of the cloth-wearing characters in the Big Fourteen.

Festival Corsair

First Mate Hat, Death Speaker Mantle*, Watcher’s Tunic, Clutch of Andros*, Nobleman’s Pantaloons, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Buccaneer’s Boots, Orange Martial Shirt, Dying Light
Although I like how black sleeves look with the rest of the design of the tunic, black shirtsleeves underneath do obscure the lacy design of the sleeves of the tunic itself.
I’d been trying to decide between these boots and plain black shoes; when I remembered that I had this hat, then these boots were the obvious choice.

Fire Witch

Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Watcher’s Tunic, Braided Manastring Cinch, Vileweave Leggings, Black Mageweave Gloves + Elastic Wristguards, Saltarello Shoes, Amber Filigreed Doublet, Teebu’s Blazing Longsword, Igniter Rod
I kept the Flame Orbs of Felo’melorn toggled off for most of Legion — but for this outfit, they were just what was needed to amp it up to eleven.

Watcher of the Dark Coven

Shoulders of Mercy Killing (25H), Watcher’s Tunic, Ritual Belt, Plaguebringer’s Stained Pants (25H), Mir’s Enthralling Grasp, Saltarello Shoes
Kishalla makes another appearance to wield Ulthalesh for this spooky Hallow’s End outfit.

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.

Jolly Jade Giant

The Horseman’s Horrific Hood, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Dreadplate Shoulders, Jade-Skull Breastplate, Felforged Waistplate, Greaves of the Shatterer, Thatia’s Self-Correcting Gauntlets, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Warboots of Cruelty, Shawl of the Old Maid
I thought I’d use the green tint of the Blades of the Fallen Prince for Kregga’s Horseman’s Helm kit this year, but it was not quite as bright a green as I had expected it to be. The greens of this particular armor set work rather well as a more saturated version of the green of the swords, though.

Evil Pumpkin King V

Hallowed Helm, Pauldrons of the Wardancer, Silithid Carapace Chestguard, Girdle of the Endless Pit, Greaves of the Shatterer, Ooze-Ridden Gauntlets, Boots of the Colossus, Blade of the Prime
I wished, a year or two ago, that the Hallowed Helm would be made Moggable. Now it is! Well, at least for the duration of the Hallow’s End holiday, which is quite enough.
These big orange Klaxxi swords just begged to be used in a DW Hallow’s End outfit. I tried the outfit first with the Horseman’s Helm, but it just didn’t click until I used the pumpkin helm instead.

Stormwind Costume

Imperial Plate set with Pauldrons of the Promise, Girdle of Uther, Jouster’s Gauntlets, Crazy Cenarion Cloak, Blade of the Silver Hand, and Maximillian’s Shield
Before Warlords, when the Stormwind Set was made available through the Dwarven Bunker Garrison building, the crafted Imperial Plate set was the favored way to imitate the look of the Stormwind Guards.
These shoulders were mail before patch 7.0. I wish that plate lookalikes had been added instead of converting the mail items to plate, because I would still like to be able to use the blue and black versions of this shoulder style for my mail-wearers.

Illidari Warp-Storm

Cursed Vision of Sargeras, Bladefang Spaulders, Shroud of Nature’s Harmony, Shifting Sash of Midnight, Cinderweb Leggings (N), Fuzzy Gloves + Bracers of Shattered Stalactites, Zierhut’s Lost Treads, Green Trophy Tabard of the Illidari, Warp-Storm Warblade
Certain Legion structures bear a remarkable resemblance to this Burning Crusade dungeon-drop weapon…

22) Illidari Matron

41) Magistrix of the Kirin Tor II

Arcanist Crown, Elder Wizard’s Mantle, Sketh’lon Survivor’s Tunic, Magister’s Belt, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Jumanza Grips, Marshfang Boots, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Ward of the Violet Citadel, Tabard of the Kirin Tor
An upgraded version of Kaelinda’s earlier Kirin Tor kit, worn while finishing the Legion Mage Order Hall Campaign.
It was hard to get a good clear shot of the off-hand because of how badly it clips into the skirt in the idle standing pose.

Between baby and school, I’ll probably going to continue have very little time for Azeroth at least until the end of this semester. It’s a situation of my own making, so I’m trying not to complain too much about it.. but I nonetheless feel like making a wistful lament. Though there’s often one or two evenings a week when I have too much work to do after baby goes to bed to feel like I can afford to log on, I’ve still usually been able to log on for fifteen to thirty minutes a day, which is enough time to turn over Champion missions with Kamalia and Kaelinda (yes, I know I could do this with the mobile app), do a few WQs with Kaelinda if Suramar or Kirin Tor Emissary is up, and do August Celestials rep with the Underpowered Death Knight. I’m managing to make progress, of a sort; between the 7.3 changes to Artifact Knowledge and prioritizing Artifact Power Champion missions, Kaelinda has reached Concordance on all three of her Artifact weapons, and Kamalia has reached Concordance on both Sharas’dal and the Fist of Ra-den. But when will I finish Suramar? Or go to the Broken Shore? Or go to Argus? I don’t know. I feel like getting to Argus is so far away that I’ve long since given up on trying to avoid spoilers about the storyline there.

Anyhow, here are some outfits I’ve made in the past few weeks. As you might guess, I’m working on making outfits in all the armor types to go with some of my favorite tabards — so you can expect to see most of these outfits show up again in themed collection posts somewhere down the line.

~*~*~

Child of Blood and Fire

Crown of Woe, Supple Shoulderguards & Waistguard (2-655), Primalstorm Breastplate, Illidari Leggings, Ironpelt Mitts & Boots
This Artifact tint is awarded for completing the level 103 stage of the Order Hall campaign.
For this outfit series, I had planned to use each blade color with the corresponding tattoo color. This magenta/purple-red is the red tattoo color that female Demon Hunters get. Unfortunately, it clashes somewhat with the scarlet/orange-red of the blades. The red tattoo color that male Demon Hunters get would be better for this outfit.

Dalaran Mage

Researcher’s Mantle, Darkmoon Robe, Gossamer Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Elementalist Boots, Whelp Keeper’s Staff
Some very simple shoulders dress this outfit up just a little bit.

Ebon Sunreaver Battlemage

Cowl of the Grand Engineer, Mantle of the Elven Kings, Cindercloth Vest, Black Belt of Knowledge, Pantaloons of Growing Strife, Gloves of Tyri’s Power, Saltarello Shoes, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Angerstaff, Sunreaver Tabard
As I was putting together this kit, I looked for pieces that were black and red and gold and went well with the tabard. When I went to take pictures of this outfit, I realized why this combination seemed so natural for a Sunreaver…

Dusky Sunreaver Herald

Bonechewer Shoulderguards, Raging Spirit Harness, Murkblood Belt, Fel Leather Leggings, Blacksting Gloves, Goat Hide Boots, Wind-Reaver’s Dagger of Quick Strikes, Amber Slicer of Klaxxi’vess, Sunreaver Tabard
I’ve long thought that the Mantid-styled daggers from Pandaria would look great with the Sunreaver tabard. I didn’t get around to doing the Argent Tournament with my Rogue until just recently, though.

The Good Earth

Straw Hat, Reporter’s Shoulderguards, Shaladrassil Tunic, Belt of Cheapened Lives, Overgrowth Cutter Breeches, Gloves of the Afterlife, Boots of the Flowering Earth, Garden Pitchfork, Yellow Lumberjack Shirt, Tillers Tabard
This is at least the third “farmer” kit I’ve made for Kate, but I hadn’t made one that used the Tillers tabard yet.

Khan of Knowledge

Khan’s set with Battleforge Shoulderguards, Golden Saronite Dragon, Turpster’s Sonorous Shield, and Lorewalkers Tabard
I’d started building a rather different outfit to go with this tabard, but when I put on these shoulders, it suddenly seemed fitting to go for the full Khan’s set.

August Sentinel

Pauldrons of the Argent Sentinel, Light-Touched Breastplate, Jade Tiger Girdle, Legplates of the Bold, Faith Bearer’s Gauntlets, Nar’thalas Sabatons, Starshatter (LFR), August Celestials tabard
The Underpowered Death Knight had to be the model for a plate August Celestials kit because blue-and-white.
I picked these glowing white shoulders with the floating shards to echo the stars in the tabard design. When I got to choosing boots, I liked how the black of these boots contrasted with the white of the shoulders, and how both items are tied into the rest of the kit by their gold trim.
