This time and the last time that the Alliance was on the offensive in Darkshore, I ran it as many times as I could with Kinevra — at least once per day in the previous cycle, once during naptime and twice after bedtime for the past couple of days during this cycle. My goal was to obtain the Moonpriest’s Vestments and Sentinel’s Branch. I got the last couple of pieces of the armor set that I needed early in this cycle, and on my third run of the day yesterday, I finally got the staff.

Hooray, now I’m done! That marks off one of my remainder-of-BfA/pre-Shadowlands goals!

Along the way, I also picked up the Sentinel’s Spellblade and the cloaks for all three of the other armor types.

Looking at the Apothecary Spellstaff, the Horde counterpart of the Sentinel’s Branch, I think I might actually use it, eventually. I’m envisioning my Warlock using it with the Necrolords stuff from Shadowlands.

I’ve so far ignored the Arathi Warfront, as that set can be obtained in other ways. Maybe next time the Alliance is on the offensive there, though, I’ll do it once just to see how it compares to Darkshore.

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

62) Epic Wicked Witch

Wicked Witch’s Hat, Magnificent Aeroglide Shoulderpads, Plaguebringer’s Robe, Mana Cord of Deception, Plaguebringer’s Gloves, Pulverizing Felsoles, Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve (rank 1), Electrowing Dagger (H) + Ledger of Revolting Rituals (H)/Baleful Spire
I refused to participate in the Darkshore Warfront on the Horde side. Collecting the Alliance version of the Darkshore Warfront set, however, also awarded me the Horde version. The only pieces I really like out of the Horde version are the robe and gloves, so I thought I’d see what I could do with them for my Warlock.
See also “Classic Wicked Witch” (Human Mage #32), “Fancy Wicked Witch” (Blood Elf Mage #25), and “Miss Aria” (Human Mage #72).

61) Helya Couldn’t Hold Me

Shirakess Headress & Mantle, Ivycloth Tunic, Belt of Unsolvable Problems, Rowdy Reveler’s Legwraps, Gloves & Sandals of the Chosen Dead, Scar-Shell’s Scintillating Staff
This kit was built around the combination of this Classic tunic and the pants from the Normal Zandalar dungeon set. It turned out more… piratey than I anticipated.

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 (*).

84) Flames Like Feathers/Frost Like Feathers/Mana Like Feathers

Orange: Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Silksand Wraps, Lava-Starched Britches, Noble’s Fancy Boots, Tabard of Summer Flames, Wild Combatant’s Energy Staff

Blue: Crown of Eternal Winter, Frostwind Mantle, Sage’s Robe, Lava-Starched Britches, Noble’s Fancy Boots, Tabard of Summer Skies, Warmongering Combatant’s Energy Staff

Purple: Mantle of Closed Doors (H), Raincaller Robes, Lava-Starched Britches, Noble’s Fancy Boots, Order of the Awakened Tabard, Emanating Staff of Shadow
This robe style is available in both cloth and leather, and both cloth and leather have firey, feathery shoulders to wear with it. Compare Druid #82 for the leather version.

83) Queen of Blood and Embers

Crown of the Seducer, Honorbound Artificer’s Amice, Sanctified Bloodmage Robe (25H), Embersilk Cord, Primal Combatant’s Gloves of Prowess, Noble’s Fancy Boots, Vindictive Gladiator’s Ironskin Cloak, Stylish Black Shirt, Starrgo’s Walking Stick
While I was working on Kinevra’s outfit for the Dazar’alor LFR crown, I thought that the combination of this robe with the crown looked magnificent. It wasn’t quite right for Kinevra, but it would be great for Kaelinda!
If only it didn’t use a number of Horde-specific PvP items, this outfit would look fabulous on a Dark Iron Dwarf.

82) Jeweled Serpent


Headdress of the First Empire, Brood Cleanser’s Amice, Robes of the Reborn Serpent, Excavator’s Safety Belt, Handwraps of Oscillating Polarity, Sandswept Sandals, Drape of the Loyal Vassal, Legacy of Arlokk
This set, collected from Normal Zandalar dungeons, is so pretty. Serendipitously, I saw a dude at the Great Seal who was also wearing the set, allowing me to capture the gender dimorphism in the design of the robe.
I think that this staff from Zul’Gurub looks better with it than the Staff of the Lightning Serpent from Temple of Sethraliss does, though.

81) Deep Tides

Deeptide set with Stagheart Staff
This is the Nazjatar zone drop recolor of the Benthic cloth set. As with the leather Nazjatar armor, I prefer the grey and softer green of the zone drop version of the set to the red and brighter green of the Benthic version of the set.
I love how this hat is a combination of a wizard hat and a tricorne!

85) Orome

Crown of Infinite Prosperity, Willow Vest, Councillor’s Sash, Elunarian Sarong, Goldenvine Wraps, Kurkenstoks, Torch of Austen, Suntouched Flowers
This festive summer beach ensemble is named after a song by European ethnopop star Oonagh.

84) Topaz and Peridot

Crown of the Seducer, Imbued Silkweave Epaulets, Opulent Robes, Night Dreamer Handwraps + Fen Spirit Wristwraps, Shattrath Jumpers, Crystalfire Spellstaff (stage 3)
Fortuitously, and fittingly, Kinevra won the crown from Opulence straight up — without using a Seal — when she went to defeat King Rastakhan for the Alliance War Campaign quest.
I couldn’t resist the pun of using the Opulent Robes with an item dropped by a boss named Opulence. I also liked how the green moderated the brightness of the orange, which led to my choice of shoulders. Overall, I’m very happy with how this turned out.

83) Duskhaven Lupin


Blue Tricorne Hat, Duskhaven Dress, Duskhaven Boots, Lupine Longstaff
The Duskhaven Top Hat is generally ridiculously expensive when it shows up on the AH, so I’m happy that this hat coordinates so nicely with the Duskhaven Dress.

82) Under The Sea


Pearlescent Spaulders, Siren Mystic’s Vestments, Belt of Blind Devotion, Gloves of Unshackled Arcana, Eelskin Flippers, Tabard of the Dreamweavers, Plundered Oracle Fin Staff
These are the pieces I wanted out of the Eternal Palace LFR set, so when I’d gotten them all, I was done. I like the design of the skirt of the robe but not the blouse, so it’s a good thing that this pretty tabard has just the right coordinating color to cover it up. It’s fun that the dimensional pearl brooch still shows over the tabard.
Nazjatar has some pretty spots, but it can’t beat Vashj’ir for gorgeous undersea scenery.

81) Tidesage

Tidespeaker/Sagehold set with Squirgle’s Deepstone Wand and Tortollan Traveling Lantern
It was this robe that, when datamined in a Legion patch PTR, gave the first clue that we’d be going to Kul Tiras in the next expansion.
Fittingly, this set is obtained by questing in Stormsong Valley, where the Tidesages have their major settlement.

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

Some of the outfits in this collection are legitimate Transmogrification kits for a plate-wearing character. Others are RP-Clothes costumes intended to imitate the look of the blue-haired Kirin Tor-affiliated elves found in various locations. I’m not sure if these NPCs are actually supposed to be High Elves that have become blue-haired because of their exposure to arcane energy, or blue dragons in humanoid form. At any rate, the only way to achieve that appearance as a player character is to be a Blood Elf Death Knight.

13) Long Bitter Night

Crown of Eternal Winter, Razorfin Shoulderguards, Battleplate of Ancient Kings (N), Swordhook Slingbelt, Legguards of the Emerald Brood (N), Magma Plated Handguards (N), Treads of Savage Beatings, Chromatically Tempered Sword
Kandrista gets to wear this outfit because, at level 111, she can use the Razorfin Shoulderguards, whereas Kaumaleia, at level 104, cannot.
I dithered for some time between this sword and Hailstorm.

I ultimately chose the Chromatically Tempered Sword because felt like its black detailing pulled the ensemble as a whole together more nicely.

12) Winter’s Kiss

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Symbolic Pauldrons, Iceguard Breastplate, Royal Qiraji Belt, Iceguard Leggings, Warleader’s Gauntlets & Greaves, Sonic Spear
The flower crown takes this outfit concept to eleven.

11) Everlasting Loveliness

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Lovely Blue Dress, Iceguard Leggings, Boots of the Fallen Hero, Decalcified Elven Spear
As of Lunar Festival in 2020, the flower crowns can now be Mogged year-round, making this Love is in the Air outfit possible!

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 (*).

26) Karabor’s Shadow


Blood-Cursed Shoulderpads, Anchorite’s Robes, Sage’s Gloves & Boots, Apostle of Argus; Tabard of Summer Skies/Aldor Tabard
When this combination of shoulders and robe was originally suggested several years ago by WoW Roleplay Gear, I planned to use it for my Tauren Priest. This was because the robe required Aldor reputation both to buy and to wear, and Kaohana was the only one of the cloth-wearers among my major characters to have chosen the Aldor rather than the Scryers. Because these shoulders are a recolor of a Warlock tier set, however, the combination never felt quite right for her (or for my Draenei Mage, when she was one of my active characters during late Mists and early Warlords). Eventually, the reputation requirement to use the robe for Transmogrification was lifted. When Kaelyla joined my roster, I knew that this outfit would be fabulous on her.
On a whim, I decided to see if the Aldor and Scryer tabards were reputation-locked. They aren’t, so to my amusement, my Scryer character can thumb her nose at the Aldor by wearing their tabard along with their robe.

25) Nether Tempest

Netherwind Mantle, Manaweave Robe, Netherwind Belt, Netherwind Boots, Ethereum Life-Staff
When my oldest child was a little baby, I spent a great deal of time farming Molten Core and Blackwing Lair. I collected most of the Netherwind set — then got tired and decided that, you know what? I wasn’t that fond of the Netherwind Mantle anyway, and maybe I’d try that robe with some different shoulders.
Recently, I found myself looking at the set and thinking, you know what? I’m not really all that fond of that robe, and maybe I ought to try the shoulders with a different robe… So back to Blackwing Lair I went, until I’d gotten the Netherwind Mantle.

24) Noble’s Spring Celebration


Pink Spring Circlet, Noble’s Robe, Gnomish Inventor Boots, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Wand of Happiness, Suntouched Flowers
The combination of colors created by using this shirt with this robe is like the hyacinths in the flower beds around the front steps of my house.

23) Sweet Summer

Crown of Boundless Courage, Vestments of the Shifting Sands, Native Pants/Red Silk Trousers, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Golden Filigreed Doublet/Amber Filigreed Doublet, Relentless Gladiator’s Cloak of Dominance, Wand of Happiness, Symbol of Transgression
This variation on the flower circlet + filigreed doublet + Slinky Leia Robe combination had to be done with an Alliance character so as to use this Alliance-exclusive off-hand from Trial of the Crusader.
There are four colors of the robe and five colors of the shirt. I couldn’t quite decide which of the two colors of the shirt that I hadn’t used yet I liked better, so I’ve shown both versions of the outfit. The yellow shirt makes this kit an inversion of sorts of my earlier “Queen of Sheba” outfit (Priest #46); the cuffs of the orange shirt look really beautiful in combination with the goblet.

22) Tranquillien Twilight

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Robes of the Guardian Saint, Azure Silk Pants, Twilight Boots, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Relentless Gladiator’s Cloak of Subjugation, Grand Scepter of the Nexus-Kings
Once I thought of this palette-swap for Kaelydia’s “Eversong” outfit (Blood Elf Mage #78), of course I had to do it.

21) Arcane Torrents

Pauldrons of the Solace Giver, Carapace Robes/Mordant’s Travel Tunic, Laughing Skull Waistguard, Arcane Leggings, Gandling’s Gloves, Sigil-Laced Boots, Grand Magister’s Staff of Torrents
After making several outfits with the brown version of this robe during the 15th Anniversary event, I wanted to use one of the other colorations.
This outfit definitely benefitted from Kaelyla having leveled up enough to use Outland items.

“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

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

Miss Lorrayne

Hat of the Youngest Sister, Deadwalker Mantle*, Tranquil Spiritbind Robes, Belt of False Promises, Cobalt-Threaded Gloves + Paper Roll Bracers, Suspicious Slippers, Chillwind Staff

80) Port Authority

Grey Tricorne Hat, Bloodbough Mantle, Nobleman’s Coat, Standard Issue Airborne Belt, Nobleman’s Pantaloons, Archaeologist’s Quarry Boots*, Nola’s Shawl, Hacksaw Skinning Knife, Crow’s Nest Spotlight
When I first discovered how small the average amount of Seafarer’s Doubloons awarded for a single Island Expedition run is, I thought I’d just settle for getting this faction-neutral version of the Tricorne Hat. By the time I’d gotten this hat, though, I was really quite enjoying the relatively mindless run-around-and-smash-things gameplay of Island Expeditions — so I think I’ll eventually collect enough Doubloons to get the other two colors of the Tricorne Hat, too.

79) Amisi’s Amiga

Nightvale Cowl, Mantle of the Champion, Vestments of the Shifting Sands, Amaranthine Leggings, Nightvale Wristwraps, Kurkenstoks, Eye-Blinder Greatcloak, Rolfsen’s Ripper, Symbol of Transgression
Amisi Azuregaze and her husband Arille are the proprietors of the Legerdemain Lounge in Dalaran. Since their introduction in Wrath, I’ve been quite fond of them for being a mixed-race couple not only as in High Elf + Human but also as in fair + dark.
Ha, I didn’t even realize until I went to take the pictures how much Kimmellyn looks like Amisi!

78) Wrathful Moonpriest




Ceremonial Crown of Karabor, Wrathful Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Imbued Netherweave Tunic, Felcast Cord, Moonpriest’s Legwraps, Sunfrost Handwraps, Inferno Breath Sandals, Moonpriest’s Cloak, Steel Bladebreaker, Urn of Lost Memories
Kinevra’s first trip to the Darkshore Warfront rewarded her with the pants and cloak from the Moonpriest’s Vestments. I thought I’d see what I could come up with to show off these fancy pants.
Seeing the addition of darker skin tones to several races in the Shadowlands alpha datamining inspired me to see what the kit would look like on Kimmellyn.
Azshara’s palace in the Well of Eternity dungeon — and the surrounding Kaldorei city that can be seen from her balcony — seriously needs a renovation now that the art team have established what Highborne architecture really looked like. But of course, the devs will never actually go back and do that.

77) Shirakess Lieutenant

Shirakess Raiment with Freeport Falchion and Tortollan Traveling Lantern
This is the Benthic cloth armor set from Nazjatar. The name of it makes me think that the coat ought to have a second set of sleeves hanging limp below the normal sleeve location, as if it had actually been something worn by a Naga woman.

76) Blessed Waters

Khadgar’s Shoulderpads of Conquest, Sanguine Silk Robes (25H), Mindfire Waistband, Saltarello Shoes, Seafury Tamer, Chalice of Benedictus
I farmed Trial of the Crusader 10 for several months before this beautiful Alliance-specific off-hand finally dropped. This Kul Tiran wand (the first new wand style I’ve really liked for a long, long time) and this robe seemed like good items to go with it. I played around with a few different shoulders; these ones won out because of how their little orange gems coordinate with the orange gems decorating the Chalice, thus making the ensemble as a whole more coherent.

75) Ye Merry Gentlefolk

Finely-Tailored Green Holiday Hat, Swoop-Tail Shoulders, Councillor’s Tunic, Captain Sanders’ Sash, Willow Pants, Saltarello Shoes, Sawbones Shirt*, Drape of the Loyal Vassal, Stoneguard, Lantern of Hope
I wanted to make a holiday outfit with this vest, using trousers. It occurred to me that the colors and design of this cloak were quite festive, and I really liked how it looked with these shoulders.

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 (*).

86) Flaming Font/Frozen Font

Orange: Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of the Cleansing Flame (N), Consortium Combatant’s Robes, Braided Manastring Cinch, Tabard of Summer Flames, Staff of Endless Winter

Blue: Crown of Eternal Winter, Hydraxian Mantle, Warp Infused Drape, Braided Manastring Cinch, Tabard of Summer Skies, Icecore Staff
Kaohana gets to wear this pair of Midsummer Fire Festival outfits because there is no lookalike item for the Firelands Priest tier shoulders. The blue version (with the hat changed to Hidden) is what she is still wearing.

85) Zul’Aman’Dazar




Red: Saurifeather Crest & Mantle, Robes of Dissention/Faded Sprit-Wrencher Robe
Blue: Bloodhex Headdress & Mantle, Forlorn Loa-Binder Robe
Green: Skycaller Cowl & Mantle, Hexing Robes
All: Bloodhex Gloves, Stanchion of Primal Instinct

These robes, originally from Zul’Aman and later from the Isle of Thunder, coordinate nicely with the feathered hats and pauldrons from Zuldazar. My favorite combination, which Kaohana continued to wear after the Mog photoshoot, is the green one.

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!
