“By the way,” said Kaelyla, “It’s fine that you want to send the Druid to Covenant with the Night Fae first — but you know that eventually you’ll want a Mage to Covenant with them, too, so you can have all four cloth Covenant Mog sets. That Mage should be me, because my aesthetic and the Ardenweald aesthetic are harmonious.”

In previous years, Kaelinda camped out at the Crooked Tree and managed to get three of the four Hats of the N-th Sister; the Hat of the First Sister eluded her. This year, she finally got it.


Hat of the First Sister with Hyldnir Runeweaver’s Garb
Hat of the Second Sister with Bloodspore Robe
Hat of the Third Sister with Frostsavage Robe
Hat of the Youngest Sister with Layered Frost Robes

Miss Aria

Hat of the First Sister, Ravencourt Formal Mantle (N), Ravencourt Formal Robes (N), Mana-Cord of Deception (N), Handguards of Defiled Worlds, Sorcerer Slippers, Barrage Dodger Cloak, Baleful Spire

Miss Lyanna

Hat of the Second Sister, Sanctified Dark Coven Shoulderpads, Vileweave Robes, Quilboar Crone Gloves, Shattrath Jumpers, Demon Commander’s Drape, Darktide Summoner Staff

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

74) Timewalker Archivist

Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Wound-Cauterizing Spaulders, Princess Poobah’s Dress, Cord of the Slain Champion (N), Zaetar’s Gloves, Kul Tiran Tidespray Linen Sandals, Keepers of Time Tabard, Lordbane Scepter, Dungeoneering Guide
A slightly fancier variation on this theme.

73) Bartered Vrykul Baubles


Bartered Vrykul Hood, Tread-Bind Spaulders, Bauble-Woven Gown, Frosthowl Cinch, Zaetar’s Gloves, Kul Tiran Tidespray Linen Sandals, Drape of the Chosen Dead, Vile Branch
I’ve long thought that this is the most handsome of the generally drab Northrend robes and have been wanting to build a kit around it. Getting this hood from the Tortollan pilgrimage scrolls quest seemed like a good opportunity to finally do that.

72) Miss Aria

Hat of the First Sister, Ravencourt Formal Mantle (N), Ravencourt Formal Robes (N), Mana-Cord of Deception (N), Handguards of Defiled Worlds, Sorcerer Slippers, Barrage Dodger Cloak, Baleful Spire
At level 115, Kinevra was just barely able to solo the first boss of Black Rook Hold to get this robe for this outfit.

71) Ice Sapphires

Fierce Gladiator’s Silk Armor with Wild Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Merciless Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Boots of Incantations, and Ebonchill (upgraded, first tint)
This kit is named and styled in parallel with the “Fire Rubies” kit that I made with the Horde recolor of this set for Kaelinda (Blood Elf Mage #57). Perhaps in another two or three expansions I’ll feel up to soloing Normal Antorus to collect the purple version of this set for “Arcane Amethysts”.

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

84) Ancestral Soothsayer

Ancestral Chieftain’s Headdress & Greatbelt, Mantle of Volatile Ice, Windshaper Robe, Frostwolf Wind-Talker Gloves, Ancient Measuring Rod, Beastskull Vessel
Ordinarily, I like to get an outfit posted before I change to another one. Kaohana was so excited about this outfit idea — especially after she remembered that the Artifact-centered weapon restrictions from the Broken Isles no longer applied — that I let her get away with having two outfits in the same Sunday Mog Show… this time.

83) Chromie Cosplay

Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Light-Mantle of the Incarnate, Runecloth Robe, Black Mageweave Gloves, Willow Boots, Keepers of Time Tabard, Key to the Planes
With the Priest T4 shoulders and the torso part of the Priest T2 robe, Chromie is something of a High Priestess of Time.

82) Miss Muriel

Hat of the Third Sister, Deadly Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Fire-Gizzard Robes, Ritual Belt, Embersilk gloves & boots, Mag’hari Chieftain’s Staff
Kaohana said, make me an outfit with this hat. So I did. It was a good opportunity to use these Wrath PVP shoulders, too!

81) Ancestral Ritualist

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Polychromatic Visionwrap*, Ritual Leggings, Acolyte’s Shirt, and Staff of Fiery Fate
Although there are several red tunics that look rather nice with the Tauren Heritage armor, I chose this no-longer-available item because it is a recolor of the same style that Tauren Priests start out wearing. I couldn’t quite find a skirt that I liked with both this chestpiece and the rest of the Heritage of the Shu’halo pieces. These shorts, however, work perfectly!

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

75) Bronze Chronomancer

Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Time Lord’s Mantle (N), Robes of Fate, Archivist’s Gloves, Gnomish Inventor Boots, Keepers of Time Tabard, Key to the Planes
Have you ever noticed how bronze dragons seem to prefer High/Blood Elves for their humanoid forms?
Kaelinda isn’t secretly a bronze dragon… but sometimes she fantasizes about it.

74) Timewalker Historian

Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Kodo-Repellant Shoulders, Princess Poobah’s Dress, Archmage Belt, Zaetar’s Gloves, Elementalist Boots, Groady Goblin Wand, Ironmender
The Timewalker NPC tabard isn’t available to players, so the Keepers of Time tabard will have to do.

73) Do You Want to Build a Snowman?



Elsa: Arachnidian Pauldrons, Robes of the Exalted, Sage’s Boots, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Flowing Sapphiron Drape, Icicle Rod*
Anna: Woundsealer Spaulders, Banshee Armor*, Mindfire Waistband, Simple Kilt, Sorcerer Slippers, Chaos Mender Cloak, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Stillpine Shocker, Eerie Stable Lantern
For a high level character, the LFR version of the Corrupted Mantle of the Felseekers would complement the “Elsa” outfit perfectly. If you haven’t got the Banshee Armor, which was rewarded from a quest that was removed in Cataclysm, the Black Mageweave Vest is a suitable alternate piece for the “Anna” outfit.

72) Skald of Skold-Ashil


Vestments of the Chosen Dead with Shoulderpads of Twisted Fate (N), Invoker’s Belt of Final Winter (N), Shuurt’s Precious, and Nurturing Touch + Heartbound Tome
A “skald” is a lore-keeper in Nordic cultures.
I’m not particularly fond of the set shoulders and belt for the Trial of Valor gear, so when I began collecting the Normal-mode Terrace of Endless Spring/Heart of Fear Mage-lookalike set, this combination suggested itself almost immediately.

71) Winds of Neverest

Snowblind Helm, Rime-Rift Shoulders (LFR), Mantid Vizier’s Robes (LFR), Warmongering Gladiator’s Cord of Victory, Felcast Gloves, Buccaneer’s Boots, Staff of the Hallowed
I love this little bell, a lookalike of a Warlords Priest Tier item, but it’s a bit difficult to work with because it’s not actually a full belt.
Between the names of the hat and shoulders and the overall chilly look of the silver and blue color scheme, Kaelinda felt like she needed to be in Frost spec while wearing this outfit.

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

19) Apprentice Timewalker Historian

Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Kodo-Repellant Shoulders, Princess Poobah’s Dress, Willow Belt, Zaetar’s Gloves, Willow Boots, Loremaster’s Colors, Dryad’s Wand, Tome of the Dawn
The Loremaster’s Colors seemed like a highly appropriate item to sub for the NPC tabard.

18) Reveling in Time

Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Gild’s Crewneck, Padre’s Trousers, Kurkenstoks, Spider Frier, Flesh and Bone
This shirt from Free T-Shirt Day is the best approximation of the shirt these chicks at the WoW’s 15th Anniversary Celebration are wearing; the dudes are wearing the Azure Silk Vest. Their pants are the Goblin level 1 Shaman pants.

17) Do You Want to Build a Snowman?



Elsa: Arachnidian Pauldrons, Robes of the Exalted, Sage’s Boots, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Flowing Sapphiron Drape, Icicle Rod*
Anna: Woundsealer Spaulders, Banshee Armor*, Mindfire Waistband, Simple Kilt, Sorcerer Slippers, Chaos Mender Cloak, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Stillpine Shocker, Eerie Stable Lantern
For a high level character, the LFR version of the Corrupted Mantle of the Felseekers would complement the “Elsa” outfit perfectly. If you haven’t got the Banshee Armor, which was rewarded from a quest that was removed in Cataclysm, the Black Mageweave Vest is a suitable alternate piece for the “Anna” outfit.

16) Three Variations on Casual Blue

Azure Silk Vest & Pants/Mistscape Armor & Royal Trousers/Blue Linen Vest & Simple Kilt, Arcane Sash, Archaeologist’s Quarry Boots*, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Staff of the Unknown Road
Because all of these outfits use the same accessory pieces, I’ve grouped them together as a mini-collection rather than making a separate entry for each one.

15) Blue Bonnet


Blue Brewfest Hat, Regal Armor, Belt of Unsolvable Problems, Archaeologist’s Dungarees/Eternal Sarong, Brewfest Slippers, Pot Stirrer + Seer’s Fine Stein
A Blue Brewfest Hat outfit for my blue elf to wear while she collected holiday XP and tokens to exchange for a Garland of Grain and the Brewfest Hearthstone.

(And what’s this? A glimpse at what Kaelyla looked like before the Telogrus Incident?)

14) See-er of Signs

Moonsoul Crown, Ternary Mantle, Seer’s Robe, Grasp of the Old God, Royal Boots, Binding Staff
I’m happy with how this kit came together.

13) Blue Linen

Feline Mantle, Blue Linen Robe, Faith Healer’s Boots*, Nasmira’s Soup Stirrer
I am fond enough of this combination of robe and shoulders to keep the shoulders, even though I could Hide them (along with the other accessory pieces) and wear the robe as a simple dress.

12) Royal Wizard

Windchaser Coronet, Arachnidian Pauldrons, Royal Gown, Sutarn’s Ring, Treads of the Survivor, House Wrynn Staff
Although this robe style doesn’t need a belt anymore, I liked how this belt looks with it.
The colors of the Replica Virtuous Mantle complement this robe very nicely —

— but that shoulder model clips so badly into the bust of the Blood/Void Elf model… *sigh*

11) Fine Day For Fishing

Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat, Almost New Shoulderpads, Blue Overalls, Willow Belt, Durable Gloves, Duskwoven Sandals, Blue Lumberjack Shirt, Darkspear Shamanic Staff
A recent conversation with Coffee Cakes & Crits about the utility of the Angler’s Fishing Raft for waterwalking purposes reminded me of the Mage-exclusive equivalent thereof, Bipsi’s Bobbing Berg. Whereas the Raft became a toy that requires only Pandaria Fishing (1) and no Angler’s rep to use, the Berg is still an object-in-inventory that requires Revered Angler’s rep to obtain and Pandaria Fishing (1) to use. Anyhow, all of that reminded me that I really ought to train Fishing with my Void Elf Mage. As soon as Kaelyla had learned Fishing, the Stormwind fishing daily popped up. So off she went, merrily, to do it. Then she wanted to get all of the Alliance capital city “Fish or Cut Bait” achievements. And then, of course, she needed a fishing kit to wear while she does it.

70) Master of Mogu Mysteries

Regalia of the Chromatic Hydra (LFR lookalike) with Amaranthine Cowl and Cloudscorcher Greatstaff
This is another example of a tier set where the LFR coloration is, to my eye, the most handsome.

69) 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.

68) 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.

67) Troll Action Battle Princess


Bloodhex Hood, Warmongering Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, High Councillor’s Tunic, Cord of Unhinged Malice, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Pyrotex Ignition Cloth + Loa Speaker’s Cuffs, Kurkenstoks, Cloak of Everburning Knowledge, Warmongering Combatant’s Battle Staff, Talanji’s Expedition Tabard
I pushed Kamalia to Exalted with Talanji’s Expedition primarily so that I could do this with its tabard.
Here are a couple of variations:

Alanna’s Embrace (from Old Scholomance; no longer available)

Vestments of the Shifting Sands + Astralaan Pants

66) Tidespray Linen


Tidespray Linen set with Fangcaller’s Staff (H)/Tidespray Linen set with Lord Aldrius’ Greatstaff (A)
The crafted gear from Battle for Azeroth has faction-dichotomous appearances. For Horde characters, the tailored Tidespray Linen set has the same appearance as the Loa Speaker quest set from Nazmir. For Alliance characters, the Tidespray Linen set has the same appearance as the Wickerwoven quest set from Drustvar. If Horde characters want the Alliance appearance, they should look for the Heartsbane set on the AH. If Alliance characters want the Horde appearance, they should look for the Bloodhex set on the AH.

65) Flames of Fate

Firehawk Hood (N), Mantle of False Virtue, Robes of Fate, Mage-Fury Girdle, Archivist’s Gloves, Oilfoot Slippers, Felo’melorn (default appearance, original tint)
I’ve used the beige and purple versions of this set (with my Priest and my Void Elf, respectively), so now it’s time to use the red version.
The End Time dungeon version of this location would be somewhat more appropriate, but I didn’t feel like playing the lottery with whether Baine would be up when I went into the dungeon.

64) Sunsworn Soulwarden



Hood of Misplaced Dreams, Swiftheal Mantle, Robe of Glowing Stone (N), Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle, Gloves of Piscine Attraction + Bracers of the Black Dream, Saltarello Shoes, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Mardenholde Staff
After spending a number of years as a curator of the renewed Sunwell, Kaelydia travelled with Lady Liadrin’s Sunsworn to Auchindoun on Draenor-of-the-alternate-timeway. During her time there, she became good friends with Soulbinder Tuulani.
There are very few cloth-wearers among the Sunsworn, and the most interesting item of clothing they wear is a yellow recolor of the Scarlet Sin’dorei Robes that isn’t available to players, so I have instead taken inspiration for Kaelydia’s Sunsworn outfit from Tuulani’s gear.

63) Coalition Wizard

Helm of Arcane Purity, Duskhallow Mantle, Wizardweave Robe, Astralaan Belt, Black Mageweave Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Grand Magister’s Staff of Torrents, Golden Filigreed Shirt, Tabard of the Shattered Sun
After the Scryers had joined with the Aldor to reclaim the BlackTemple of Karabor, a holy site for the Draenei, Kaelydia was glad to see the Aldor joining with the Scryers to reclaim that most holy of sites for the Sin’dorei, the Sunwell.

62) Scryer Luminary

Elegant Mantle, Black Ash Robe, Serenity Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Nimboya’s Mystical Staff*, Scryers Tabard
Following the destruction of Eversong Woods, Silvermoon City, and the Sunwell by Arthas Menethil, and the rejection of the elves by Garithos of Stormwind, it seemed to Kaelydia a good idea to follow Prince Kael’thas and his new allies, Illidan Stormrage and Lady Vashj, to Outland. When Kaelydia observed the devastation of Farahlon caused by the construction and ignition of the manaforges, however, she began to doubt the Prince’s plan for providing his suffering people with the supply of mana they needed. She was not alone in these doubts, of course, and when Lord Voren’thal defected to Shattrath, she was among those who went with him.

61) Dreamscale II

Starfire Tiara*, Primal Combatant’s Amice of Prowess, Dreamscale Inlaid Vestments, Primal Combatant’s Cord of Prowess, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Infernoweave Boots, Rubellite Staff of Intuition
A variation on an outfit I originally designed for my Priest. Given its red and gold color scheme, Kaelydia thought that her vibrant red hair and golden eyes would look good in it.
