Variations on chestpieces & leggings to go with the Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor for all of the classes available to Tauren.

Ancestral Chieftain’s Blessing

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor

~*~*~

Ancestral Totemic

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Replica Vest of The Five Thunders, Sanctified Frost Witch’s Legguards, and Staff of the Earthmother
After wearing the Heritage of the Shu’halo set as-is for awhile, it was time to mix it up a bit. For a Shaman, I wanted to use a kilt. I hadn’t thought of this combo of chestpiece and kilt until I happened across it while working on this outfit — and I rather like it!

Ancestral Naturalist

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Thunderheart Vest and Origin of Nightmares
The Heritage of the Shu’halo set is rather like a cross between Baine Bloodhoof’s armor and the immensely popular Black Temple Druid Tier set.

Ancestral Survivalist

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Bloodmail Hauberk*, Sunfury Legguards, and Spear of Rethu
Although I really liked the mail chestpiece & pants I’d chosen for Kawneiha, I didn’t want to just repeat that combination for Ketura’s kit. I’d tried these pants as an alternate for Kawneiha’s set, so I knew I liked them with the rest of the pieces, but it took a few iterations to find a chestpiece that worked. The chestpiece I’m using dropped from Old Scholomance; if you haven’t got it, I also liked the how the Stage 1 Wayfaring Tunic looked.

Ancestral Berserker

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Warlord’s Iron-Breastplate, Thorium Leggings, and Kadrak’s Axe
With the Heritage of the Shu’halo set appearing to be made of non-metallic materials, plate was the most difficult armor type to work with. This combination works well enough, I suppose.

Ancestral Protector

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Plate of the Shaman King, Runic Plate Leggings, and The Hand of Antu’sul + Sternhorn’s Shield
This chestpiece was a natural choice for this kit, as it is worn by Baine’s Honor Guards and by various Sunwalker NPCs. I liked how the blue knees on these pants picked up on the blue accents on the headdress and gloves.

Ancestral Seer

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Ancestral Robe, Neophyte’s Shirt, and Staff of Feral Furies
How could I not use the Ancestral Robe for this? I rather liked how certain low-level red vests looked, too, so Kaohana, at least, will get another Ancestral Chieftain’s outfit sometime in the future.

Ancestral Brawler

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Feral Harness, Prospector’s Woolies, and Teroclaw Talon
The Prospector’s Woolies aren’t much more covering than the Ancestral Chieftain’s Loincloth, but it’s enough to look better to me.

Ancestral Gravewalker

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Antiseptic-Soaked Dressing, Tarnished Fanatic’s Wargreaves, and Mighty Gorian Cleaver
This was the most difficult kit to get right. Eventually, I decided that the set bone chestpiece was the best for a DK, so I put in a shirt. Though these pants are Trollish in origin, they have the same bone aesthetic, plus those gnarly skulls on the knees.

~*~*~

Here are a few additional variations on the theme.

Ancestral Warchief

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Antiseptic-Soaked Dressing, Legplates of Feverish Dedication, and Beastkiller

Ancestral Hunt Leader

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Felstalker Breastplate, Scale Leggings of the Skirmisher, and Bow of the Great Hunter

In which a milestone (of sorts) is reached.

Ancestral Chieftain’s Blessing

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor
This will be outfit #100 of “Things My Shaman Wears”. It’s not really Kamalia’s 100th outfit, because she shares those pages with mini-Kam; and I’ve already made over 100 total Shaman outfits because of the ones on Kjerstin’s pages. Nevertheless, I wanted the official Outfit #100 to be something special. The Shu’halo Heritage Armor is perfect for that purpose.

I’m not all that fond of the chestpiece and leggings of the Shu’halo Heritage Armor, though, so I thought I’d try swapping them out for some other pieces.

Ancestral Hunt Leader

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Felstalker Breastplate, Scale Leggings of the Skirmisher, and Bow of the Great Hunter

And here’s a couple of other new kits I made this week.

Azsh’ari Stormsurger

Azsh’ari Stormsurger Benthic Mail Armor with Boggspine Knuckles and Wheel of the Lost Hope
After Kamalia obtained a complete Benthic armor set but didn’t want to wear it as her next outfit, I was rather delighted to find that Kjerstin, who is still level 110 and hasn’t been to Kul Tiras yet, could Mog it. I suppose I should have expected that, as all the armor in any given level bracket is now available to someone at the very beginning of that level bracket — but somehow I still thought that perhaps she might have to be level 120 to use it.
I prefer it without the hat, though. I think the starfish over the eye just looks silly.
I thought I’d take the pictures for this outfit in Vashj’ir… but having been Boosted, Kjerstin hasn’t actually opened that portal yet.

Red Suede Prom Dress



Chestguard of Insidious Desire, Illidari Belt, Gloomtalon’s Spare Kilt, Bard’s Gloves & Boots, Misery’s End
If I’m remembering correctly, two-piece formals started to come into style in the real world about a decade or so ago.
I tried this kit with Hidden gloves, but the chestpiece includes wrappings around the lower arms, and I decided that it just looked better with the matching gloves on.
The red version of the Glaive of the Fallen carried by the Illidari Enforcers on the Fel Hammer would be perfect for this outfit, but alas, it doesn’t seem to be available to players.

~*~*~

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.

72) Ancestral Survivalist

Kawneiha will probably wear this kit for a very long time.

I doubt that I will make many more such outfits in the future — but for the first week in which everything but Pants can be Hidden, why not join the party?

The Demon Hunter’s New Clothes

Rageclaw Leggings, Fel-Etched Glaive
Showing off fancy torso tattoos is one of the primary reasons why, as of Patch 8.2, chestpieces can be Hidden.

Beefcake/Cheesecake

Orgrimmar Leggings, Scalping Tomahawk + Sternhorn’s Shield/Dustwallow Impaler
Kamalia’s parents were quite the lookers in their youth.
This fashion suits Tauren particularly well, I think 😉

I have one more idea for a bare-chested outfit, but it will have to wait until Lunar Festival comes around again because I want to use a flower crown with it.

Anyhow, although I doubt that I’ll make many more bare-chested outfits, I probably will make kits that Hide the chestpiece so as to display a shirt. I kept all of my earliest characters’ Level 1 clothes, so when Cataclysm made all new Level 1 clothing soulbound and changed the shirts into chestpieces of the appropriate armor type, I still had all those original Level 1 shirts around. Then when Legion made shirts soulbind so that they could be Transmogrified, I was able to bind them into my Appearances collection.

Eversong Lookout

Lookout’s Tunic*, Lookout’s Pants, Bonechewer gloves & boots, Stung
While I’ve Hidden Kelisanna’s equipped chestpiece so as to show off the no-longer-avaliable pre-Cataclysm shirt version of the Level 1 chestpiece, I’ve actually put on the Level 1 pants. A more fully Mogged kit would use the Bonechewer pants. Kelisanna’s just sitting around in town for now, though, and I do love that unique lilac color in the Lookout’s items.

I’m definitely happy about the change to being able to Hide gloves & bracers!

Ordon Pyresinger

Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Funeral Pyre Vestment, Sash of Mortal Desire, Glowing Magical Bracelets, Funeral Pyre (N)
I first designed this kit as a Yaungol RP outfit for Kaohana long, long ago. The gloves in the original outfit design were chosen to be as inconspicuous as possible; now they can be Hidden. I’ve kept the bracers visible, though, because they add to the barbaric, Yaungol-like image I intend to evoke.

The last outfit in today’s collection doesn’t make use of any of the new things we can Hide.

Nazmiracle

Zanchuli Crest, Saurifeather Mantle, Red Mageweave Vest, Apothecary’s Waistband, Astralaan Pants, Rotting Handwraps + Earthmender’s Bracer of Shattering, Infernoweave Boots, Dragon’s Blood Cape, Formal White Shirt, Talanji’s Expedition Tabard, Wild Combatant’s Battle Staff
A striking ensemble that is hauntingly reminiscent of the blood trolls that Talanji’s Expedition seeks to contain.

Now that we can go bare-chested, you know what we need? A Cosmetic GRASS SKIRT for the Pants slot. I’ve Suggestion Boxed it.

The Suramar Paragoning crew change their clothes, and so do a couple of other characters.

Dazar’Alor Special Investigator

Zanchuli Crest, Wild Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Goldweave Tunic, Serenity Belt, Astralaan Pants, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess + Loa Speaker’s Cuffs, Gnomish Casting Boots, Ragged Azsharan Sail Fragment, Wild Combatant’s Battle Staff, Formal White Shirt, Talanji’s Expedition Tabard
A mostly white and gold outfit to coordinate with the mostly white and gold Talanji’s Expedition Tabard.
Might be perceived as blue and black under certain lighting conditions.

Nemesis

Nemesis Raiment with Horns of the Left Hand Path, Hatefury Mantle, and Scepter of Sargeras (upgraded, first tint)
A classic, though not entirely Classic, Warlock look.

Dawnchaser Gladiator

Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Scaled Armor with Relentless Gladiator’s Ornamented Spaulders, Wild Gladiator’s Gavel, Masterwork Spiritguard Shield, and Thunder Bluff Tabard
Once, I thought Karaelia would never be able to wear the PvP Paladin set worn by Teya Dawnchaser. Fortunately, Legion‘s BOA Marks of Honor from the insta-WQ items available as a perk from certain Order Halls changed that for me. This outfit doesn’t perfectly mimic Teya’s gear, as she is wearing the Elite version of the Cataclysmic Gladiator set, but it’s close enough.

Emberwyrm

Jewel of the Firelord, Blackrock Pauldrons Gauntlets & Greaves, Carapace of Imbibed Flame (H), Foundry-Fired Plate Girdle, Legplates of Frenzied Devotion (H), Blades of the Fallen Prince (upgraded, third tint)
Darkness and ice get so boring sometimes, so let’s try darkness and fire for a while.
The imminent return of the Midsummer Fire Festival may also have had something to do with choosing a firey outfit.

Firewater

Wild Gladiator’s Ironskin Helm, Shoulderpads of the Chosen Dead (LFR), Dokebi Chestguard, Supple Waistguard (Stage 2), Duskwatcher’s Leggings, Murkblood Gloves, Drogstitch Boots, Fu Zan (Hidden, first tint)
The helm, shoulders, and staff of this kit are an orange/red variation on my earlier Romulan Ale kit (#64).

Jungle Instincts

Headdress of the Sleeper, Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Sunglow Vest, Thatch Eave Vines, Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Dragonhide Legguards, Brutohide gloves & boots, Stanchion of Primal Instinct
The gloves & boots are my favorite pieces from the Horde Battle for Azeroth leather quest gear because they have such lovely gilded details and nice smooth background colors — perfect for using them as accessory items.
One of the things I like about Zuldazar is how quickly Dazar’Alor disappears once you get out of the city and into the jungle.
