This installment features the third and final outfits in the series I’ve been doing using the plate and cloth quest reward gear from Zandalar, plus my take on the Eternal Palace LFR cloth set.

Dunecrawler

Exiled Veteran’s set with Nazmani Warplate helm & shoulders, hidden belt, Pennant Cloak, and Skycaller’s Ceremonial Mace
The Zandalar quest plate sets have the shoulders and helm in a contrasting color to the rest of the items, so one has to mix-and-match sets to get a monochromatic color scheme. This combination, which is not quite so monochromatic as the other possibilities, uses the Nazmir helm & shoulders with the rest of the set from Vol’dun.

Desert Thunderstorm

Nightvale Cowl, Nightvale Mantle, Sandspinner Vestments, Imbued Silkweave Cinch, Scrollbound Arachnid Gloves, Marshfang Boots, Akunda Adherent’s Cloak, Master Builder’s Shirt, Sethrak Warden’s Staff
The skies darken suddenly over the desert. Lightning flashes and thunder rumbles. Rain pours down. Gullies and washes roar with flash floods. Just as suddenly, everything is calm again. The desert plants unfurl fresh leaves and bright flowers.
This coloration of the Zandalar cloth quest set is obtained from Vol’dun.
Although the Dustwind Cowl matches the colors of the robe perfectly —

— I’m not a fan of the blinded eyes style.

Under The Sea


Pearlescent Spaulders, Siren Mystic’s Vestments, Belt of Blind Devotion, Gloves of Unshackled Arcana, Eelskin Flippers, Tabard of the Dreamweavers, Plundered Oracle Fin Staff
These are the pieces I wanted out of the Eternal Palace LFR set, so when I’d gotten them all, I was done. I like the design of the skirt of the robe but not the blouse, so it’s a good thing that this pretty tabard has just the right coordinating color to cover it up. It’s fun that the dimensional pearl brooch still shows over the tabard.
Nazjatar has some pretty spots, but it can’t beat Vashj’ir for gorgeous undersea scenery.

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.

Another week, another set of new clothes.

Tidesage

Tidespeaker/Sagehold set with Squirgle’s Deepstone Wand and Tortollan Traveling Lantern
It was this robe that, when datamined in a Legion patch PTR, gave the first clue that we’d be going to Kul Tiras in the next expansion.
Fittingly, this set is obtained by questing in Stormsong Valley, where the Tidesages have their major settlement.

Deep Tides

Deeptide set with Stagheart Staff
This is the Nazjatar zone drop recolor of the Benthic cloth set. As with the leather Nazjatar armor, I prefer the grey and softer green of the zone drop version of the set to the red and brighter green of the Benthic version of the set.
I love how this hat is a combination of a wizard hat and a tricorne!

Blood of the Chosen

Cowl of the Grand Engineer, Mantle of the Chosen Dead, Loa Speaker/Bloodhex robe & gloves, Cord of Unhinged Malice (N), Wild Gladiator’s Treads of Cruelty, Zardax’s Tattered Drape, Sawbones Shirt*, Korthek’s Staff
This brighter coloration of the Zandalar cloth quest set is obtained from Nazmir.

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.

Malachite

Direbone Frill set with Exiled Veteran’s helm & shoulders, Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Clasp of Meditation, Pterroleather Cloak, and Sethrak Warden’s Scimitar
The Zandalar quest plate sets have the shoulders and helm in a contrasting color to the rest of the items, so one has to mix-and-match sets to get a monochromatic color scheme. This combination uses the Vol’dun helm & shoulders with the rest of the set from Zuldazar.

These outfits were fun to put together.

Port Authority

Grey Tricorne Hat, Bloodbough Mantle, Nobleman’s Coat, Standard Issue Airborne Belt, Nobleman’s Pantaloons, Archaeologist’s Quarry Boots*, Nola’s Shawl, Hacksaw Skinning Knife, Crow’s Nest Spotlight
When I first discovered how small the average amount of Seafarer’s Doubloons awarded for a single Island Expedition run is, I thought I’d just settle for getting this faction-neutral version of the Tricorne Hat. By the time I’d gotten this hat, though, I was really quite enjoying the relatively mindless run-around-and-smash-things gameplay of Island Expeditions — so I think I’ll eventually collect enough Doubloons to get the other two colors of the Tricorne Hat, too.

Zanchuli Dreamer

Nimar’s Tribal Headdress, Night Dreamer Mantle, Zanchuli Raiment, Shadra Silk Gloves, Wild Gladiator’s Treads of Cruelty, Sawbones Shirt*, Golden City Greatcloak, Grave Watcher’s Longstaff
This coloration of the Zandalar cloth quest set comes from Zul’dazar. The robe also looks spectacular with the stage 1 Hexweave Mantle and the Illidari Shoulderpads

— though ultimately I preferred the more subdued look of these Broken Isles shoulders.
Although I frequently toggle Kalaneia’s hair color between black and silver, I rarely change her hair style. This headdress, however, needed a hairstyle that would show it off more cleanly.

Blood Champion of Zandalar

Rastari helm & shoulders, Nazmani Warplate chest legs gloves boots, Abandoned Zandalari Bucklebreaker, Fallen Spider Handaxe, Loa-Bound Defender, Crimson Silk Cloak
The Zandalar quest plate sets have the shoulders and helm in a contrasting color to the rest of the items, so one has to mix-and-match sets to get a monochromatic color scheme. This combination uses the Zuldazar helm & shoulders with the rest of the set from Nazmir.

Nether Tempest

Netherwind Mantle, Manaweave Robe, Netherwind Belt, Netherwind Boots, Ethereum Life-Staff
When my oldest child was a little baby, I spent a great deal of time farming Molten Core and Blackwing Lair. I collected most of the Netherwind set — then got tired and decided that, you know what? I wasn’t that fond of the Netherwind Mantle anyway, and maybe I’d try that robe with some different shoulders.
Recently, I found myself looking at the set and thinking, you know what? I’m not really all that fond of that robe, and maybe I ought to try the shoulders with a different robe… So back to Blackwing Lair I went, until I’d gotten the Netherwind Mantle.

Valorous Dreamwalker




Valorous Dreamwalker set with Unwavering Stare and Scythe of Elune (default, 4th tint)
This seemed like an appropriate set for Kerisa to wear while doing the “A Fresh Trauma” and “In Darkness, I Dream” questlines for the Heart of Azeroth.

Some cheerful outfits for Noblegarden Sunday, some wintery outfits because we’re still getting occasional snow where I live, and some Nazjatar outfits for recently-dinged-120 alts.

Queen of Spring

Crown of Boundless Courage, Elegant Dress, Sea Sculptor’s Cuffs, Eelskin Flippers, Crystalheart Pulse-Staff
Pretty pretty princess! These golden accessories from the Eternal Palace raid are the perfect accompaniments for the pink gown.

Spring Sunshine


Yellow Spring Circlet/Fen Spirit Headdress, Fen Spirit Mantle, Robe of Solomon*, Girdle of Nobility, Blessed Gloves of Undead Cleansing*, Slippers of Serenity, Gorian Staff
Kaelinda wanted an outfit with the yellow bunny ears. The quest that awarded it having vanished in the Shattering, this particular robe is no longer available —

— but the very similar Bright Robe also looks good.

Noble’s Spring Celebration


Pink Spring Circlet, Noble’s Robe, Gnomish Inventor Boots, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Wand of Happiness, Suntouched Flowers
The combination of colors created by using this shirt with this robe is like the hyacinths in the flower beds around the front steps of my house.

Amisi’s Amiga

Nightvale Cowl, Mantle of the Champion, Vestments of the Shifting Sands, Amaranthine Leggings, Nightvale Wristwraps, Kurkenstoks, Eye-Blinder Greatcloak, Rolfsen’s Ripper, Symbol of Transgression
Amisi Azuregaze and her husband Arille are the proprietors of the Legerdemain Lounge in Dalaran. Since their introduction in Wrath, I’ve been quite fond of them for being a mixed-race couple not only as in High Elf + Human but also as in fair + dark.
Ha, I didn’t even realize until I went to take the pictures how much Kimmellyn looks like Amisi!

Moonfrost


Crown of Eternal Winter/Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Shoulderpads & Leggings of the Chosen Dead, Lo’ap’s Tunic, Briarback Cinch, Trickster’s Handwraps, Boots of the Forked Road, Jaded Crystal Dagger
I designed this outfit some time ago, but decided to delay using it until I’d unlocked the Night Warrior appearance because I thought it would look even more awesome against that complexion.

Long Bitter Night

Crown of Eternal Winter, Razorfin Shoulderguards, Battleplate of Ancient Kings (N), Swordhook Slingbelt, Legguards of the Emerald Brood (N), Magma Plated Handguards (N), Treads of Savage Beatings, Chromatically Tempered Sword
Kandrista gets to wear this outfit because, at level 111, she can use the Razorfin Shoulderguards, whereas Kaumaleia, at level 104, cannot.
I dithered for some time between this sword and Hailstorm.

I ultimately chose the Chromatically Tempered Sword because felt like its black detailing pulled the ensemble as a whole together more nicely.

Fathomstalker/Slithershell


Fathomstalker/Slithershell set with Plundered Oracle Fin Staff
The Fathomstalker set is the leather Benthic armor set from Nazjatar. The Slithershell set is the Nazjatar zone drop recolor of the Fathomstalker set. I prefer the soft grey and muted green colors of the Slithershell set.

Crashing Waves

Bloodcraver Pauldrons, Wavecrash Chestplate & Greaves, Vim’s Scalecrusher Girdle, Bleakweald Handguards & Stompers, Flanged Mace, Dockyard Targe
The Wavecrash set is the Nazjatar zone drop recolor of the Benthic Zanj’ir Scaleguard set. I particularly like the soft blue color of the chestpiece.

As you might have already seen, Wowhead has previews up for the Covenant-specific armor sets: Kyrian/Bastion, Night Fae/Ardenweald, Venthyr/Revendreth, Necrolords/Maldraxxus.Update: this WoWhead post on April 28 is a hub for all the colors of all the armor types of all the Covenants — 4 armor types x 4 colors x 4 Covenants = 64 Covenant sets in all

Of the cloth sets, I think my favorite is the Night Fae. It will be beautiful on my Void Elf Mage! The Venthyr cloth set has turned out to be the least exciting of the Venthyr sets to me; it doesn’t look like it will play mix-and-match with the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor as well as the plate and leather sets will. I do like that it has both robe and tunic options, though… and I am already imagining how I could use its pieces to play mix-and-match with various items of existing gear. So my Blood Elf Mage will get it. The Kyrian set looks very Priestly, which isn’t really all that surprising. I’m finding myself wondering if might look more awesome on a Kul Tiran rather than my Eastern Kingdoms Human Mage. And my Warlock is thinking, yeah, there might could be some mix-and-match things she could do with the Necrolords set (and all my Mages are still going nope-nope-nope about it).

My Druid — whichever one of the three it ends up being — will go Night Fae, of course, so it’s a good thing that I like the set (especially the glowy acorn-shaped flasks on the belt). The Venthyr leather sets have my Rogue and Demon Hunter clamoring to be leveled to go to the Shadowlands. My Monk would be the one to choose Kyrian. As for the Necrolords set… nope, Nope, NOPE.

Only the Night Fae and Maldraxxus collections currently have mail sets available. I definitely like the Night Fae set (minus the silly shoulders), so that’s good because that’s almost certainly the Covenant that Kamalia would choose from an RP perspective. That would leave it to one of my Hunters or other Shaman to pick up the Kyrian or Venthyr sets. While T13 did do feathers for Shaman successfully, the metallic nature of the Kyrian mail set makes it seem more suited to a Hunter to me.

In plate, the Kyrian set is the choice of my Tauren Paladin, and the Venthyr set is the choice of my Blood Elf Paladin. My Warrior isn’t excited about any of them, and even my Death Knight is saying “meh, I guess, maybe?” about the Necrolords set.

Looking at the backpieces, I like all three of the Kyrian backpieces and all three of the Night Fae backpieces. I like the first two of the Venthyr backpieces; I’d probably only use the first one (with the lanterns) for a Mage and I’d use the second one (with the knives) for a Paladin, a Rogue, or a Demon Hunter. Of the Necrolords backpieces, the only one my Warlock wants is the third one, but my Death Knight admits that the second one would be kind of a neat look for her Wardrobe.

All this analysis is really just pie-in-the-sky daydreaming, though, considering that I’ve already decided to restrict my adventures in Shadowlands to four cloth-wearers + a Druid, and that even getting those five through will probably end up being a challenge, given the way Battle for Azeroth has gone for me due to RL circumstances.
