The Sunday Mog Show goes golden!

You know what? There needs to be an “I like your Mog” emote. So many times I see folks wearing really awesome outfits, but none of the available emotes are really very good for telling them that. Cheer and smile and wave and highfive are a little too ambiguous, and whistle and grin and blow-a-kiss are too creepy.

Guardian of the Dream

Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Veil of Turning Leaves, Moonglade Robe, Shado-Pan Initiate’s Belt, Leggings of the Chosen Dead (N), Shining Buckle Gauntlets
Kerisa was finally ready to finish her Order Hall Campaign — and to do so, she needed to look the part of The Archdruid.
I left the Trial of Valor pants on because I liked the way their side panels looked on the robe.

Guardian of Hyjal

Nordrassil Headpiece & Wrath-Mantle, Merciless Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Tunic & Legguards, Girdle of Nefarious Strategy (LFR), Heth’Jatari Battlegloves, Leyman’s Boots, Staff of the Verdant Circle
Kerithian was one of the druids who tended Nordrassil during its recovery following the battle with Archimonde. She left Nordrassil to assist in the areas surrounding Shaladrassil after the defeat of Xavius in the Emerald Nightmare.

Purple Stormclouds

Snake Spaulders, Stormstrike Vest, Band of the Night Raven, Earthfury Legguards, Bramblemail Gloves, Treads of the Wasteland (N), Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Streamtalker Slicers, Cobalt Buckler*
I’ve wanted to make a kit with this chestpiece, a recolor of the Classic Shaman “Elements” set, for a very long time. When I was farming for T1 and T2 about a year ago, it occurred to me that the T1 pants would go quite nicely with it.
The belt, the shirt, and the shield pull out more of that turquoise accent color from the vest, making the kit more visually interesting than it would have been if it were all purple.
The Bastion of Twilight looming over Loch Modan freaks me out more than a little.

Radiant Glory

Battleplate of Radiant Glory (N) with Stormwind Vanguard Polearm or Archon’s Gavel + Masterwork Spiritguard Shield
The Valkyra shieldmaidens of Stormheim wear a unique recolor of the Dragon Soul Paladin set. It is most like the LFR coloration, except brighter and more golden. At present, though, I only have the Normal mode version of the set.
As NPCs, the Valkyra can wield a polearm as a 1H weapon together with a shield. Players have to choose one or the other. This particular polearm is awarded from the pre-Leigon Broken Isles scenario and is thus faction specific. The Alliance version is this one, golden with a blue gem. The Horde version is dark grey, like tarnished silver, with a red gem.

Infusion of Clarity

Sage’s Mantle, Warp Infused Drape, Cord of the High Priest, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Communal Staff
Having just used these shoulders with the orange version of this robe for Kaohana’s Midsummer outfit, I thought that next I should use them with the blue version of the robe. I was going to Hide the belt, until I saw how nice the Priest Order Hall belt looked with the robe. Then using a Priest-exclusive staff, too, seemed like the thing this outfit wanted.

Silver Hand Sunwalker Brave

Mantle of Winged Triumph (LFR), “Fireproof” Venture Co. Blastplate, Greatbelt of Living Waters (LFR), “Super Sterilized” Blastguard Legplates, Grips of the Fallen Council (LFR), Sabatons of the Humble, Lightborn Spire
The Sunwalker Braves at the Sanctum of Light are wearing the Normal mode Siege of Orgrimmar Paladin set, albeit with a different chestpiece. I only have the LFR version of the set, however, and the pants are the one item of the set that I didn’t get. So I have subbed in these Warlords items that are vaguely similar in color and design.
I don’t have the Tabard of the Lightbringer and probably never will, unless I decide to spend some time during Battle for Azeroth doing the Shadowmourne questline with my Death Knight. I tried to approximate the Tabard of the Lightbringer with my guild tabard, but the closest I could get was the rook chess piece icon, with the icon and border in light blue and the background color in light gray — the colors inverted because light gray is not an available color for the icon and border of a guild tabard. That wasn’t satisfactory, so I concluded that it would be better just to go without a tabard.

Reinforced Yak-Herding Apparel

Sunsong Armored Helm, Chilled Shoulderplates, Breastplate of Kel’balor, Dojani Girdle, Felsworn Legplates, Reinforced Hound-Handler’s Gauntlets (LFR), Lead-Soled Seabed Striders (LFR), Yak-Herder’s Longstaff
As promised, a more “everyday” sort of outfit using this combination of shoulders, gloves, and boots.

Death by a Thousand Cuts

Black Rose Amice, Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Felweave Raiment, Catalcysmic Gladiator’s Cord of Accuracy, Junglepicker Gloves, Withered Slippers
When Kalaneia dinged 110, the next stage of her Order Hall Campaign was to rescue Shinfel Blightsworn. Because rescuing Shinfel was what Kishalla came to Dreadscar Rift to demand that The Netherlord do, Kalaneia promptly assigned her to do it.
This robe is suitably melodramatic for the “life is pain” mindset of an Affliction Warlock, though it has never particularly appealed to me. It looks terribly uncomfortable. Kishalla, however, insisted upon wearing it, perhaps to prove to Shinfel that she had not “gone soft” in her erstwhile tutor’s absence.

Fierce Combatant’s Felskin

Fierce Combatant’s Felskin Armor
I managed to collect all of the pieces of this armor set from using my insta-WQ item on PvP WQs, so I figured I might as well wear it for awhile. This helm also has a cowl in the back that requires the high ponytail hairstyle to fit over it, so I guess Kira will be wearing her hair that way for a little while longer.
It would have been more thematically appropriate to go to Argus for these pictures — but Kira still has her primary hearthstone set at Sanctum of the Stars, so going to Black Temple was easier.

Arcane Inquisitor

Arcane Singed Mantle, Manawracker Vestments, Warmongering Gladiator’s Cord of Victory, Zaetar’s Gloves, Seawitch Sandals, Telmor Soulpriest Staff
Have you noticed that the robe for the cloth gear awarded from Broken Isles World Quests is the same style as the robe worn by the Inquisitor race of demons?

Dark Before Dawn


Fierce Combatant’s Silk Cowl Amice & Treads, Robe of Glowing Stone (N), Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle, Nightvale Gloves, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Staff of Immaculate Recovery
A Priestly sort of kit, to be sure — but Kaelinda is the one who has the Legion PvP items, thanks to her insta-WQ Order Hall perk.

Farseer of the Earthen Ring

Battlebound Spaulders, Nexus-Strider Breastplate, Tol’Vir Hereditary Girdle, Frozen Forest Kilt, Farseer’s Gauntlets, Tabard of the Earthen Ring
An update of an earlier Earthen Ring kit (Things my Shaman Wears #15), to wear while doing the Artifact retirement quest chain in Silithus.

~*~*~

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.

A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by the Underpowered Death Knight. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

51) Reinforced Yak-Herding Apparel

Sunsong Armored Helm, Chilled Shoulderplates, Breastplate of Kel’balor, Dojani Girdle, Felsworn Legplates, Reinforced Hound-Handler’s Gauntlets (LFR), Lead-Soled Seabed Striders (LFR), Yak-Herder’s Longstaff

A collection of outfits for the Midsummer Fire Festival featuring the tabards rewarded from the quest to defeat Frost Lord Ahune. Although the tabards, unlike the other Festival items, are usable for Transmogrification all year round, I chose to make outfits using the holiday color combination of orange and blue.

Beach Bonfire

Circle of Flame, Corrupted Mantle of the Felseekers (LFR), Robe of Crystal Waters*, Arachnidian Girdle & Gloves, Kurkenstoks, Amber Filigreed Shirt, Tabard of Summer Skies, Crystalfire Spellstaff
Sometimes I feel like maybe it’s a bit unfair to use items that are no longer available in my outfits — but if I’m not using them, then why did I go to all the trouble of getting them? A very similar appearance can be obtained by using the Robes of the Guardian Saint or the Robes of the Exalted.

Midsummer Talespinner

Eye of Flame, Sage’s Mantle, Consortium Combatant’s Robes, Embersilk Cord, Black Mageweave Gloves + Nightvale Wristwraps, Sorcerer Slippers, Tabard of Summer Flames, Rod of the Broken Temple
Although monocles don’t look like much on Tauren, they do look good on Blood Elves and Gnomes!
This robe doesn’t have belled sleeves that the Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves can hide under, so I’ve had to be a little bit more clever than usual.

Frost-touched Flamestrider

Shoulderpads of the Chosen Dead (LFR), Flamestrider Robes, Supple Waistguard (stage 3), Trickster’s Leggings, Supple Gloves (stage 2), Warmongering Gladiator’s Boots of Victory, Tabard of Summer Skies, Frostbitten Staff
The cloth Silksand Wraps is identical to this leather robe. The rest of the outfit would look quite different in cloth, though!

Endless Summer

Warmongering Gladiator’s Ironskin Helm, Shoulderpads of the Chosen Dead (N), Bladed Chaos Tunic, Supple Waistguard (stage 2), Primal Combatant’s Legguards, Supple Gloves (stage 3), Mud Encrusted Boots, Tabard of Summer Flames, Staff of Endless Winter
This outfit didn’t have quite the right balance of orange and blue until I added the hat. Yowzah, this hat and these shoulders make a fantastic combo! I should remember to use them together again in a non-silly-holiday outfit…

Lingering Embers

Otherworldly Pauldrons, Mountain Stream Ringmail, Warmonger’s Belt, Expedition Forager Leggings, Fletcher’s Nimble Grips, Warmongering Gladiator’s Footguards of Prowess, Tabard of Summer Skies, Amun-Thoth (LFR), Zom’s Crackling Bulwark
I thought about using the orange and red Rocket-Chief Pauldrons to bring some more orange into this outfit, but the gold and silver Otherworldly Pauldrons looked better with the tabard. So only a touch of orange, then, from the belt and the orb on the fist weapon… Oh hey, when I zoom in to get a closer look, these pauldrons have an orange band on them that complements the belt quite nicely!

Burning Ice

Rocket-Chief Pauldrons, Formidable Chestpiece, Girdle of Living Flame, Defender Leggings, Engraved Gauntlets & Boots, Tabard of Summer Flames, Steelhawk Crossbow
A more subtle blue seemed like the right way to go for this outfit.

Summer Sky-Guardian

Circle’s Stalwart Helmet, Embossed Plate Pauldrons Gloves & Boots, Icebane Chestguard, Girdle of Unity, Legplates of the Destroyer, Tabard of Summer Skies, Coldsinger Scepter, Skyguardian’s Shield
I could very easily have made this outfit all in blue… but because it’s for the Fire Festival, it needed to have some orange in it, too. Maybe I put too much orange in it? Oh well, I like it like this. The overall effect does look rather more balanced between orange and blue when I unsheathe the weapons.

Unseasonable Chill

Jewel of the Firelord, Chilled Shoulderplates, Embossed Plate Armor & Leggings, Dojani Girdle, Reinforced Hound-Handler’s Gauntlets (LFR), Lead-Soled Seabed Striders (LFR), Tabard of Summer Flames, Zoid’s Firelit Greatsword (N)
A few years back (see below), I made a Midsummer Fire Festival kit for my other Death Knight that featured the Embossed chestpiece leggings & boots with the Chilled Shoulderplates and Symbolic belt & gloves. I was certain that these gloves and boots from Trial of Valor LFR would coordinate better with the Chilled Shoulderplates. They do, so after the holiday is over, I should swap out all the other items in the outfit to make a more everyday sort of kit.

~*~*~

I made this set of outfits, not using the tabards, in 2014. I’m reposting them here to have all my Midsummer outfits in one place.

Scorched Clouds


Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors, Cloudscorcher Robe, Angkhal Cord, Feralfen Mystic’s Handwraps, Ogre Slayer’s Cover, Funeral Pyre
Under most circumstances, I Transmogrify over the lurid Cloudscorcher Robe as quickly as I can. During the Midsummer Fire Festival, however, that orange and blue color combination is right in season.

Torch of Summer Flames


Jewel of the Firelord, Spaulders of the Ring, Lo’ap’s Tunic of Muck Diving, Serene Yellow Belt, Warchief Kilt*, Barrel-Aged Gloves, Cloak of the Frigid Winds, Torch of Noon
A similar look could be obtained by using the Flamestrider Robes with a Stylish Blue Shirt. For non-Monks, I suggest Ogron’s Sash, Belt of Never-Ending Agony, or the Mighty Girdle.

Dancing With Fire


Jewel of the Firelord, Rocket-Chief Pauldrons, Engraved set, Cloak of Cheerful Flowers, Cerulean Filigreed Shirt, Carapace Breaker
I originally designed this set to go with the Crown of Destruction from Ragnaros 1.0 or the Crown of Flame from Ragnaros 2.0, but it works just as well with his Jewel.

Embossed Symbols


Jewel of the Firelord, Chilled Shoulderplates, Embossed Plate chestpiece leggings & boots, Symbolic belt & gloves, Illskar’s Greatcloak, Hatred’s Vise
Although Kregga has mostly resigned herself to being put into absurdly colored outfits during the holidays, if there was an animation for the /facepalm emote in the game, she would be using it.

61) Endless Summer

Warmongering Gladiator’s Ironskin Helm, Shoulderpads of the Chosen Dead (N), Bladed Chaos Tunic, Supple Waistguard (stage 2), Primal Combatant’s Legguards, Supple Gloves (stage 3), Mud Encrusted Boots, Tabard of Summer Flames, Staff of Endless Winter

I sat on this one for an extra week so that I could get all of the rest of the Trial of Valor sets in it. I considered sitting on it for another week because of the Midsummer Fire Festival Holiday — but didn’t want to wait that long.

Garb of the Chosen Dead

Garb of the Chosen Dead (N) with Icecore Staff
I finished the quest and now I have these awesome shoes in two colors!

Chains of the Chosen Dead

Chains of the Chosen Dead (N) with Stained Shoulderguards, Edge of the Tuskarr, and Ritualistic Shield
As much as I like the scrolling fire runes on the left side of the set shoulderpads, I dislike the huge dragon skull on the right side.

These simpler shoulderpads that I’ve chosen instead do allow the cool helm of this set to stand out more.

Funerary Plate of the Chosen Dead

Funerary Plate of the Chosen Dead (N)
Although my Paladin is the one who did the quest to get this set of armor, it seemed like my Warrior ought to be the one to wear it, to use it with the Fury Artifact swords.

Airspark

Meowl’s Mane, Felstalking Shoulders, Broodmother Armor, Waistclasp of Unethical Power (LFR), Warmongering Gladiator’s Ironskin Legguards, Windslayer Wraps, Llothien Boots
I have already made a handful of similar white leather kits using these PvP pants and pieces from one coloration or another of the Legion leather quest set — but I hadn’t made this exact combination yet!
The yellow tint of the Fists of the Heavens reminded me of the icon for one of the reagents that Spiritwalker Ebonhorn requests to facilitate the vision of Huln in the War of the Ancients; hence, the name I gave this kit.

The Vestment of Summer can be purchased for 100 Burning Blossoms, a relatively easy amount to acquire. The subdued brown and bronze colors of this robe make it rather interesting to work with.

Wildfire

Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Vestment of Summer, Vicious Embersilk Belt, Warmongering Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess + Nightvale Wristwraps, Kurkenstoks, Mistyreed Torch
If one happens to be a Mage, the Flame Orbs of Felo’melorn provide the perfect finishing touch for this outfit.

Druid of the Summer Flame

Jewel of the Firelord, Passive Resistor Spaulders (H), Vestment of Summer, Manimal’s Cinch, Murkblood Gloves, Dragonhawk Boots, Funeral Pyre (N)
Although I used Firelands shoulders in the outfits I made with this robe for all the other armor types, the Druid Firelands shoulders just weren’t right for it. I made up for it by using a Firelands weapon. I was going to call this outfit “Leyara’s Legacy”… until I saw on Wowhead that in BfA there will be a set that closely resembles the Druids of the Flame.
If I had it, I would use the Hidden appearance for the Scythe of Elune, Sunkeeper’s Reach, with this outfit.

image from Wowhead
Acquiring it requires Exalted rep with the Dreamweavers and getting a rare drop from the first boss of Darkheart Thicket. I’ve been feeding Kerithian Dreamweavers rep tokens, but she’s nowhere close to Exalted, and she hasn’t done any dungeon running. Kerisa has the rep, but she hasn’t run Darkheart Thicket often enough to see the item drop.

Bonfire’s Blessing

Crown of Flame, Craterflame Spaulders, Vestment of Summer, Veteran’s Ringmail Girdle, Arrowflick Gauntlets, Radiant Boots, Claw of the Black Drake, Drillborer Disk
Between being a Hunter and a Miner, Kjerstin thought, when she became a Shaman, that she would find it easiest to commune with the elements of air and earth. She was surprised to find that she had the greatest affinity for fire.

Spark of the Titans

Crown of the Fire Festival, Spaulders of Manifold Eyes (N), Vestment of Summer, Ghost-Forged Belt, Leystone Gauntlets, Blade of the Titans
I wondered how I would get a plate outfit to work with this robe — until I thought of these shoulders. Voila!
Taeshalach would be perfect for a Midsummer Fire Festival Outfit.

image from Wowhead
I haven’t got that weapon, though, so the Blade of the Titans will have to do.

Keep watching this space for even more fabulous Fire Festival outfits!
