Illidan’s Frenemies

Many of Illidan’s minions in Outland wear a distinctive tabard. A quest chain in Shadowmoon Valley — which was rather challenging back in the day of Burning Crusade — allowed players to obtain the Green Trophy Tabard of the Illidari or its purple variation to flaunt their victory over The Betrayer. Now, in the day of Legion and its aftermath, I suppose that wearing these tabards represents being an ally (of sorts) with the Jailer of Sargeras.

Eclipsion Sniper

Thelwater’s Steelwoven Eyepatch, Furious Gladiator’s Chain Spaulders, Fel-Chain Hauberk & Leggings, Bramblemail Belt Gloves & Boots, Purple Trophy Tabard of the Illidari, Starbolt Longbow

Shadowfury

Shadowmoon Cowl, Hatefury Mantle, Frostweave Robe, Voodoo-Woven Belt, Wooly Goat Punchers, Boots of Duress, Shroud of the Highborne, Terokk’s Shadowstaff, Green Trophy Tabard of the Illidari

Ata’mal Spectre

Horseman’s Horrific Helm, Crystalvein Pauldrons, Chromite chestpiece & leggings, Symbolic belt gloves & boots, Sword of Nefarian’s Hand, Purple Trophy Tabard of the Illidari

Almost all Legion Illdari NPCs wear an upgraded version of the Green variation of the Trophy Tabard of the Illidari. Patch 8.0 made the new Illidari tabard available to Demon Hunter PCs as well from their Order Hall armor vendor.

This week has been kind of crazy and working on a new outfit here and there has been a good way to relax.

Cyclops’ Ruin

Rune-Enscribed Hood, Fire-Chanter Shoulders, Decaying Herbalist’s Robes, Riplimb’s Lost Collar (N), Skygrip Handguards, Steppebeast Boots, Wild Wood Staff
Lord of Icecrown from WoWable requested a design for a Druid kit using the Mythic version of the Spur of the Great Devourer from Hellfire Citadel. I don’t have that weapon myself, so I chose an alternate staff with similar coloration and pointyness to actually make the kit with after I’d designed the outfit in the Dressing Room.
I thought that the creepiness of this Warlords Monk tier-lookalike hood would go well with the creepiness of the intended weapon. Then I built the outfit around the teal-contrasted-with-rust color scheme of the hood.
Here’s how the kit would look with the Spur of the Great Devourer:

I like how the overall effect of the ensemble has turned out — but now I’m having some totally different ideas for a Druid kit to go with this weapon…

Nether Devoured

Crown of the Forest Lord, Dreadleather Shoulderguard, Netherfiend Chestpiece, Relic Hunter’s Cord, Netherfiend Trousers, Cannonball Loader’s Grips, Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Malroc’s Staff of Command
This outfit went in a very, very different direction than I originally thought it would — nothing remains of the original idea that I started with.
Here’s how it would look with the Spur of the Great Devourer:

Grandma’s Kitchen Garden

Seer’s Padded Armor, Willow Belt, Scarecrow Trousers, Riding Gloves* + Revitalizing Wristguards, Riven Priesthood Slippers, Garden Shovel/Farmer’s Broom
When Kimorene existed as a separate alt, this was what she looked like, and this sweater was what she wore. In RP-space, Kimorene is one of the oldest of my characters by psychological age; she is Godmother to Kymberlea (and Kivrinne) and tends Kymberlea’s children while the Worgen Mage is out adventuring. Her previous appearance as “Princess of the Vir’naal” showed what she looked like when she was young.

Certain NPCs wear proper spectacles. I first noticed them on Sungshin Ironpaw at the Halfhill Market in Pandaria, but I’ve since spotted them on various others. If those spectacles ever become available for player characters to wear, not only would Kimorene always wear them but also most of my other Mage characters would probably end up wearing them as their default headgear, too.

Crimson Pilgrim


Whitemane’s Chapeau, Red Mageweave Shoulders, Scarlet Sin’dorei Robes, Girdle of Prophecy, Black Mageweave Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Light’s Wrath (hidden, default tint)
The Crimson Pilgrims seen in Legion Dalaran are a group of dissidents from the Scarlet Onslaught in New Hearthglen. They were scheduled to be executed for their heresy, but were rescued in the nick of time by the High Priest of the Netherlight Conclave.

Silver Hand Sunwalker Keeper

Rusted Bonespike Pauldrons (25H), Ornate Battleplate of the Master, Guardian’s Scaled Belt, Jade Tiger Legguards, Fallen Lord’s Handguards (25H), Vindicator’s Scaled Greaves, Tabard of the Lightbringer, Mace of Acrid Death, Sternhorn’s Shield
These Sanctum of Light NPCs are wearing the same NPC-only coloration of the ICC Paladin tier set that is worn by Highlord Fordring himself at Icecrown Citadel. I’m not sure what the NPC pants are, though — I couldn’t find them in my Paladin’s collection, either in her already-acquired items or in her not-yet-collected items. Maybe they’re a recolor of a Warrior or Death Knight item?

~*~*~

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.

Rusted Bonespike Pauldrons (25H), Ornate Battleplate of the Master, Guardian’s Scaled Belt, Jade Tiger Legguards, Fallen Lord’s Handguards (25H), Vindicator’s Scaled Greaves, Tabard of the Lightbringer, Mace of Acrid Death, Sternhorn’s Shield

I’m doing teaching Science, and I’m still alive. — GLaDOS

It is the beginning of the semester and I am drowning in work because I haven’t yet found the rhythm of the routine that will best manage my workload and workflow through the week.

Seeing everyone’s picture posts and discussions about Battle for Azeroth, I’m getting increasingly antsy to just go to Kul Tiras already with one or more of the Blue Team — but I really must get my feet underneath me at school first.

Although I don’t really have time for even that much, I’m still logging into WoW every day to do trivial, trite, little legacy content things — the Northrend fishing quest with my Paladin, who wants that “Tiffany Cartier original” Jeweled Fishing Pole not just because it is TEH SHINEY but also because she is herself a Jewelcrafter — clearing H Magister’s Terrace with Kaelinda because I’ve decided that she needs to be Exalted with the Shattered Sun for RP reasons (to be explained in a story post sometime in the future) — checking the Broken Isles Emissary and doing it with Kaelinda if it is Suramar (just give me the darn carpet already, Thalyssra!) or with Kiralaira if it is Argussian Reach or with both Kaelinda and Kiralaira if it is Kirin Tor.

Nevertheless, I’ve managed to make some time for Mogging, too…

Alunaria’s Adornments


Conquerors Nightsong Cover, Mantle of Gnarled Overgrowth, Shaladrassil Tunic, Hozen-Speed Waistband, Kilt of Immortal Nature, Shardtooth Gloves, Dreadlord’s Tattered Wingcover (LFR), Embroidered Shirt, Tabard of the Dreamweavers, Warmongering Combatant’s Battle Staff
This beautiful Dreamweavers outfit was originally designed by Alunaria. I couldn’t make it with Kerithian because she doesn’t have the rep for the tabard yet. As I thought about it, I liked how doing it with Kerisa instead (with a few substitutions for items I don’t have) would show some cross-faction we-all-weep-for-a-World-Tree-in-the-Moonglade-and-the-Dreamgrove Druid solidarity.

Eclipsion Sniper

Thelwater’s Steelwoven Eyepatch, Furious Gladiator’s Chain Spaulders, Fel-Chain Hauberk & Leggings, Bramblemail Belt Gloves & Boots, Purple Trophy Tabard of the Illidari, Starbolt Longbow
So, I had two cloth-wearing Blood Elves and two leather-wearing Blood Elves. Recently, I created two plate-wearing Blood Elves. It was somewhat inevitable that I would want to have a mail-wearing Blood Elf to complete the set.
Karolissa makes her debut wearing an Illidari Trophy Tabard kit because making a mail outfit to go with this tabard has been on my Mogging to-do list for quite a while now, so why not? It must be said, though, that I’m much happier with the kit I was able to make using these Legion-era items than I would have been with a kit made from Burning Crusade-era items.

Hand of Illidan

Cursed Vision of Sargeras, Demon-Rend Shoulderblades, Shaladrassil Tunic, Illidari belt bracers & boots, Bladefang Legguards, Fuzzy Gloves, Slayer’s Tabard, Warglaives of Azzinoth/Twinblades of the Deceiver (upgraded, first tint)
Many of Illidan’s minions in Outland wear either the Green Trophy Tabard of the Illidari or its purple variation. Almost all Legion Illdari NPCs wear an upgraded version of the Green variation. Patch 8.0 made the new Illidari tabard available to Demon Hunter PCs as well from their Order Hall armor vendor.

Deathlord of the Ebon Blade

Warchief’s Mantle, Breastplate of Retribution, Bogslayer Belt, Legguards of the Resolute Defender, Death Grips, Boots of the Unwavering Will, Master Builder’s Shirt, Tabard of the Ebon Blade, Blades of the Fallen Prince (upgraded, first tint)
This outfit is a minor variation on one of the very first Transmogrification kits I made for Kregga.

Silver Hand Sunwalker Dawnchaser

Battleplate of Immolation (N, lookalike) with Barbaric Iron Breastplate, Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Embroidered Shirt, Tabard of the Lightbringer, and Talon Guard Wingsmasher
I’m not quite sure what weapon the NPCs are wielding — though I’m fairly certain that it’s a PvP model — so I just picked something from my collection that had similar coloration and somewhat similar aesthetics.

Princess of the Vir’naal

Mountainsage Hood, Mooncloth Robe, Demonic Gladiator’s Silk Cord, Riding Gloves* + Orphic Bracers, Kurkenstoks, Tabard of Ramhaken, Torth-Slayer’s Staff
I had an idea in mind to change Kaylynda into from her previous outfit, but I didn’t do it right when I thought of it. Then this idea ambushed me and now I’ve forgotten what the other one was. Maybe it will come back to me in a week or two.
This alter-ego character is named Kimorene. She once existed as an actual alt who was a Priest. As a Priest, she’d wear this variation on the outfit —

— which uses the Nightvale Cowl, Primal Mooncloth shoulders and belt, Hammer of the Astral Plane, and Heartbound Tome.

Boosted characters receive this gear. It can also be obtained from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.

The set from which the shoulders, chestpiece, and legplates of this outfit come is the armor of the Death Knight Captains in the Military Wing of Naxxramas. When it was made available to players via the Trial of the Champion dungeon, a bluish-silver recolor (sadly lacking shoulders) that is more suitable for Paladins and a bronze recolor that is more suitable for Warriors were added.
