Some good luck at the BMAH and a bit of thinking ahead when Trial of Style was up went into creating this installment’s outfits.

Faith & Fortune II




Crown of Everlasting Fortune/Crown of the Righteous, Lightning Infused Mantle, Selfless Wings of the Ascended, Robe of Faith, Belt of Faith, Selfless Watcher’s Warboots, Soul Releaser/Greatstaff of Righteousness
On my third try of actively watching and bidding on a BMAH auction for a Belt of Faith, I finally managed to outlast and outbid the competition.

Hot Feet/Cold Feet



Fire: Jewel of the Firelord, Firelord’s Mantle (H), Master’s Vest, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Tabard of Summer Flames, Demonic Combatant’s Silk Handguards + Bracers of the Bronze Flight (H), Embereye Belt, Lava-Starched Britches, Searing Stompers, Wild Combatant’s Energy Staff (H)



Frost: Crown of Eternal Winter, Firelord’s Mantle (N), Master’s Vest, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Tabard of Summer Skies, Demonic Combatant’s Silk Handguards + Bracers of the Bronze Flight (N), Frostwind Cord, Lava-Starched Britches, Freezing Footguards, Wild Combatant’s Energy Staff (A)
I bought these shoes from Trial of Style pretty much just so I could use them for this outfit concept. Maybe I’ll think of some other uses later. The brightly colored soles showing while moving is neat.
Though none of the items in this pair of outfits are actually holiday-locked, Midsummer Fire Festival just seemed like the right time to make them.

Druid of the Cycle III


Big Voodoo Mask, Thunderlord Shoulderguards, Osteowings of the Necrolords, Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor, Antiseptic-Soaked Dressing, Bat Fur Mitts, Ferocious Gladiator’s Dragonhide Belt, Warmongering Gladiator’s Leggings, Duskbat Exterminator’s Treads, Hozen Warrior Spear
I was looking at the Necrolords bone wings in another context and it suddenly occurred to me that they would look great with this combo of shoulders and chestpiece, previously seen in (Tauren) Druid #68.
I think this look works for an Ardenweald/Night Fae character because of Ol’ Bwonsamdi, hmmmmm?

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.

It’s almost the end of June, Dragonflight is not yet in open beta, and Blizzard is already announcing that it will launch by the end of the year?

With that announcement, the pre-orders are open, of course.
So far, I’ve gotten the second-tier version of three expansions: Warlords of Draenor for the Dread Raven (fancier Anzu) mount, Battle for Azeroth for the Gilded Ravasaur mount, and Shadowlands for the Eternal Traveler Transmogrification set. I’ve been quite happy with those purchases.
The only thing I really want out of the second-tier version for Dragonflight is the bundled level 60 Boost, to use for my Tauren Mage — though let’s be honest: I’m probably going to make that character, Boost her, and then just faff around with Mogging her while continuing to actively play my Blood Elf and Void Elf Mages as co-mains.
The Mog stuff is in the third-tier version. The Diadem of the Spellkeeper headpiece just isn’t my style. I rather like the Dragon Wings backpiece Mog, especially since it comes in all five Classic dragonflight colours by default. I’m already imagining a revisit of the “Dragon Princess” series I did with my Blood Elf Priest using those wings.
If I got the third-tier version of Dragonflight, I’d essentially be paying $20 for the level 60 Boost and $20 for the Dragon Wings… I think that’s acceptable — I’ve been satisified with the $20 I spent for the Celestial Observer’s ensemble.
I don’t plan to make that purchase, however, until after I’ve 1) gotten my Fall classes ready to go, 2) done the Korthia Campaign, and 3) done the Zereth Mortis Campaign.

Follow-ups to last week’s kits, sort-of.

Lana’thel’s Gift


Sanctified Bloodmage Shoulderpads 25H/25N-10H, Mantle of Crimson Blades/Mantle of Burnished Blades, Sanctified Bloodmage Robe 25H/25N-10H, Court Inquisitor’s Handwraps/Sinful Inquisitor’s Handwraps, Eternal Traveler’s Treads/Slippers of the Forgotten Heretic, Dying Light/Quel’delar, Lens of the Mind + Anima-Infused Muck
The “Dark Ranger” customization is also excellent for San’layn cosplay — though the actual Darkfallen Archmage NPCs in the Blood wing of ICC who wear the 25H version of the ICC Mage Tier set have blue DK/Domination-magic eyes, not blood red eyes. I chose Dying Light for this version of the set because I remembered that it dropped in ICC — and when I looked it up on Wowhead while assembling this item list, I found that it drops from Lana’thel, making the name I chose for the ensemble even more appropriate!
Because Void Elves have a hair color that is a near match, I show as a variation the 25N-10H version of the set, which uses the same color scheme as Blood Queen Lana’thel herself. I chose Quel’delar because of Lana’thel’s role in that story. Alas, I haven’t actually got the Mantle of Burnished Blades because I haven’t yet begun doing Venthyr Travel Network Broken Mirrors.

Night Glaive

Celestial Observer’s Constellations, Broodmother Armor, Grips of the Chosen Dead, Misthide Belt, Bladedancer’s Pantaloons, Boots of the Chosen Dead, Archon Glaive
I couldn’t leave Kerithian in the Nightmare for very long, so here she is with the original special questline-granted Night Elf-exclusive appearance, the Night Warrior (which is really only the eyes, Night Elf eye color 10, but I like to use skin color 13 and hair color 16 with it). This ensemble — hairstyle included — is loosely inspired by Tyrande’s Night Warrior visage.

Druids just wanna have fun.

Malorne’s Nightmare II


Gladiator’s Dragonhide Armor with Cloak of Blade Turning and Scythe of Elune (PVP, first tint)
Naturally, I had to play around with the “Dark Ranger” customization introduced in Patch 9.2.5 with a Night Elf — and since I did it with Kerithian, of course it made her into a Nightmare Druid.

If you are 1337 like I’m not, The First Satyr’s Spaulders would be an awesome addition to this look.

Flames of Duty


Flame Healer’s Shoulderguards (N), Winterwoven Bulb, Deceitful Agent’s Vest, Gloves of the Hidden Temple, Windflame Girdle (N), Celestial Observer’s Leggings, Hive Tunneler’s Boots, Lakali’s Spire of Knowledge
I obtained the Normal-mode Siege of Orgrimmar shoulders and belt from the BMAH some time ago. I wanted to see what kind of combo I could make with Shadowlands items. This is what I ended up with, and I’m rather pleased with it.
This also happens to be the big #100 for “Things my Druid Wears”.

By the time I was able to log in yesterday night, I’d decided to save doing the new Blood Elf-exclusive questline until after I’ve finished the Kyrian Campaign, so that Kaelinda can be herself and so that my screenshots won’t be all cluttered up with other players. Instead, Kamalia went to see what was up with Calia Menethil and Lordaeron. It felt good to have Kamalia take the lead on a world-story-advancing questline again. The questline was consistent with current WoW storytelling, with a fairly shallow story and a rather silly big showpiece moment leading to “yay we won!”.

Lillian Voss is probably my favorite Forsaken character. I was pleased to see, when we went to find Lillian Voss in Brill, that she had Amalia Stone and Derek Proudmoore with her. I appreciated that continuity with the BfA story, even though those two characters didn’t do anything in the remainder of the questline. With Calia and Derek we see a Menethil-Proudmoore alliance… just not the one those families originally imagined. But what, then, of Calia’s secretly-wedded husband and infant daughter who were killed by the Scourge — a part of her backstory described in the Before the Storm novel, but never referenced in-game? **sigh**

The part in Maldraxxus seemed like it was made with the expectation that everyone doing it would already have flying (which I don’t). I managed not to die while kodo-charging through perilous terrain to get to the NPCs we needed to consult, but I was sure glad that as a Shaman, I’d be able to Reincarnate if I did. It also helped that I use the Comfortable Rider’s Barding as my standard mount equipment. Protection against daze-and-dismount while riding through hostile territory is much more valuable to me than water walking!

The surprise of the new “Dark Ranger” customization for Blood, Void, and Night Elves (Delaryn Summermoon is also present at Brill) is a fun little thing, good on the devs for sneaking that past the PTR. I was somewhat disappointed to find that the new skin tone and the red eyes are linked, rather than separate options — if you choose the skin tone, you also get the red eyes; if you choose the red eyes, you also get the skin tone; you can’t have purple skin and red eyes or the new skin tone and silver eyes.

As a Mage, I see the “Dark Ranger” customization as a way to finally make the perfect San’layn cosplay with the 25H ICC Mage Tier set:

(though upon checking, the Darkfallen NPCs in the Blood wing of ICC have blue DK/Domination-magic eyes, not blood red eyes)

Or, with the shortest ear length option, the perfect Venthyr cosplay:
All My Sins II


Sinful Inquisitor’s Vestments with Sinfall Venthyr Hood & Slippers, Soulbreaker’s Ebony Mantle, Silver-Thread Sash, Kael’s Dark Sinstone Chain, and Damnation
A variation on an outfit I originally made for my Warlock (#78).

I keep looking at the chestpieces and pants from the leather Castle Nathria and Venthyr 9.0 sets and thinking dang, those look hawt. All the pieces I want from the Castle Nathria set drop from the first LFR wing, so that might not be too bad to start trying to farm… sometime later this summer or fall, perhaps. I could get the Renown coloration of the Venthyr 9.0 set easily enough after I’ve got more Anima coming in from Korthia and Zereth Mortis. I could get the Ember Court coloration of the Venthyr 9.0 set after my Mages have done Ember Court and unlocked the account-wide fast upgrades for that activity. Those are my favorite colorations of the Venthyr 9.0 set; I won’t bother with the other two. In the meantime, here are a couple of new outfits for Tauren wearing other armor types.

Mini-Mayla


Stonecrag Pauldrons + Hidden Shoulder, Tribal Unification Cloak, Hidden Chestpiece + Brawler’s Harness*, Grash’s Fireproof Handguards, Iron Beltguard of Fuufuu, Stonecrag Legplates, Stonecrag Sabatons, Brunnhildar Harpoon
Thinking about rolling a Highmountain Tauren Mage come 10.0 reminded me of my little Highmountain Tauren Warrior (previously seen in Warrior #65), and how I could now make for her the Mayla-lookalike outfit that I hadn’t been able to back in Legion.
Mayla’s actual chestpiece is the Ceremonial Leather Harness; I’ve used the original level 1 Horde Warrior shirt to mimic that look.

Tideshaper II


Blue Tricorne Hat, Crosswind Shoulderguards, Runewarden’s Greatcloak, Circuit-Linked Chainmail, Fletcher’s Nimble Grips, Girdle of the Scroll-Sages, Kilt of Rolling Thunders, Sharas’dal (upgraded, first tint), Coldscale Shield
Kamalia wanted a new kit, and she wanted to wear this outfit, which is a slight modification of a kit that I originally created for my Dwarf Shaman (#15) about two years ago.

I almost didn’t post these two purple outfits in this Sunday Mog Show since I showed them recently as part of Pretty Dress Collections. But they are newly created outfits, not old ones that you’d just forgotten that you’d seen before, so here they are again.

Incarnation of Light

Crown of the Fire Festival, Light-Mantle of the Incarnate, Aspiring Aspirant’s Drape, Robes of the Incarnate, Warmongering Gladiator’s Satin Gloves, Cincture of Will, Light’s Wrath (PvP, default tint)
I have fond memories of Karazhan, and I have always thought that this set is very pretty.

Violet Ice

Shoulderpads of Twisted Fate (H), Drape of the Violet Tower, Frostweave Tunic, Soulguard Girdle, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Eelskin Flippers, Ebonchill (upgraded, 3rd tint)
I wanted to make an outfit with this chestpiece so that I would have done something with all four colors that this style comes in. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do, though, until I thought of pairing it with this kilt. I liked how the black in this cloak coordinated with the black in the chestpiece.
