Although this iconic Classic robe style is quite pretty on the computer screen, I think its multiple layers might be rather fussy to put on and to keep attractively arranged if it were a real life garment.

This style is available in both cloth and leather. In leather, it comes in only two colors, green and orange. I think it makes a much better leather style than a cloth style, so I have made several outfits using the leather version, which I have previously posted.

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 (*).

122) August Celestial Observer

Celestial Observer’s Ensemble with Anacondra’s Robe, Cushy Cenarion Walkers, August Celestials Tabard, Starshard Edge, and Divine Companion
As I’ve mentioned before, I like the patterning on the sleeves and skirt of the Celestial Observer’s Robe, but I’m not a fan of its bulky dimensional chestplate. When I thought of substituting this robe, naturally I immediately had to do it.

121) Soothsayer




Mystical Headwrap, Sympathetic Amice, Foxhollow Drape, Initiate’s Necromantle Vestments, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Coalwalker Sandals (H), Jaina’s Staff
The coordination between the robe and the turban is the core concept of this kit.

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 (*).

54) Inquisitor at Court II

Court Inquisitor’s Vestments with Gleaming Crypt Keeper’s Mantle, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Mantle & Sash, Sandswept Sandals, Sinfall Ceremonial Blade, and Anima-Infused Muck
More playing around with mix-and-match of the 9.0 and 9.1 Venthyr cosmetics. See also Blood Elf Mage #116 and Warlock #78.

53) Empyreal Aspirations


Empyrial Cosmic Crown, Waylight Shoulderpads, Drape of Twisted Loyalties, Aspiring Aspirant’s Robes & Handwraps, Cord of Uncertain Devotion, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Spectral Censorite’s Staff
These gold and white shoulders from Bastion leveling are rapidly becoming one of my favorite pieces from this expansion.

52) Aspiring Attendant


Aspiring Aspirant’s Regalia with Shadowlace Mantle, Shadowlace Cord, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, and Warmage’s Spire
This set has no shoulders of its own; these ones look pretty good with it, don’t they?

51) Pearls and Diamonds


Court Inquisitor’s Hood, Waylight Shoulderpads, Sha’tari Anchorite’s Cloak, Astral Knot Robe*, Black Belt of Knowledge, Astralaan Boots, Aluneth (upgraded, 3rd tint)
I was thinking of this as a white and gold outfit while I was putting it together. When I got it finished, however, I realized that this robe is more silvery than white, which reminded me of pearls.

Kaelinda and Kaelyla both reached Renown 80 last week.

I ran them both through setting their Renown to 40 with each of the other three Covenants using Broker Marks of Distinction. Much to my disappointment, I discovered that the Renown 40 Covenant titles require you to be currently a member of that Covenant to use them. I also sent Broker Marks of Distinction to Kalaneia and Kamalia. Kalaneia is thrilled to now be able to style herself Baroness Kalaneia; Kamalia prefers to remain Farseer Kamalia.

Everyone who is at least level 50 — I checked with my Paladin and Priest, who are level 50 but haven’t been to the Shadowlands yet — now has access to all armor-type-appropriate Venthyr and Night Fae cosmetics that I have collected thus far. To get the rest, Kaelinda (as Kateleina) will need to get to Renown 80 with the Necrolords, and Kaelyla (as Kaelyra) will need to get to Renown 80 with the Kyrian.

In the process of getting to Renown 80, Kaelyla completed the 9.0 Night Fae Campaign. Although there were a couple of times when I kept dying, I quite enjoyed it — it was nicely very different from the Venthyr Campaign, and I liked the visits back to Azeroth locations (the visits to the Maw, not so much!). Getting that goal completed left me feeling energized to jump into the remaining two 9.0 Covenant Campaigns. So with this week’s reset, before I did anything in the Shadowlands, I took Kaelinda and Kaelyla to the Hall of Curiosities in Oribos, and Kateleina

and Kaelyra

emerged to begin gathering Anima, Souls, and Renown for the Necrolords and the Kyrian, respectively. I intend to build up those Sanctums to level 3 Travel Network, level 2 Anima Conductor with treasure box and extra world quest reinforced, and the other features activated but left at level 1.

Meanwhile, WoW’s Anniversary is on. Kasheena is once again camping out in the Caverns of Time for easy XP from Historian Ju’pa’s daily trivia quiz; for the last couple of years, Kaelyla was her companion in that endeavor, but this year it is Kamalia.

Darn it if that Celestial Observer’s set that just got added to the cash shop isn’t pretty. It might even be just the thing to encourage Kerisa to get her feathery Boomkin bum back into Horrific Visions of Orgrimmar to get Ashjra’kamas upgraded to its final appearance — that set and that cape look like they’d go together quite beautifully. If the ghastly news about Blizzard’s internal culture hadn’t broken open over the summer, I’d have bought the Celestial Observer’s set and be showing off new Mogs with it in this post already. Now, though, it seems like a money grab and an attempt to distract (or something) from the increasingly bad PR, and I feel rather conflicted about giving Blizzard anything more than my sub.

The “Baby Murloc Satch-Shells” that have also just been released seem like an attempt to ride the coattails of the popularity of The Child from The Mandalorian. Apparently they’re tied to a 6-month sub, so I’ll be getting them by default. I’d rather have the Celestial Observer’s set by default.

Wowhead has some early datamining of the Mythic Progenitor Tier set models. The Mage set looks really bland to me; I think I might be more interested in collecting the lookalike items for the Priest and Warlock sets (from the LFR colorations, of course). The Warlock robe I think looks especially nifty with the ribboned panel with the design that goes across all the ribbons on the front of the skirt.

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

26) A Blue Dragon Princess, Again








Windchaser Coronet, Slaughterhouse Spaulders, Celestial Observer’s Starshroud Buckle & Astral Walkers, Glacial Robe, Tempest’s Touch, Rod of the Broken Temple/Frostbitten Staff
Another Blue Dragonflight kit for Kazuligosa to complete this set of outfits representing the Classic dragonflights.
The Celestial Observer’s Starshroud is perfect for Blue Dragonflight RP because it evokes their ancient seat of power at the Eye of Eternity.
This kit has a fancy version and a plain version because I couldn’t decide which version I liked better.

25) A Black Dragon Princess




Circle of Flame, Ravencourt Formal Mantle, Shroud of Resolve (stage 1), Robe of Volatile Power, Wild Gladiator’s Cord of Cruelty, Ruby Slippers, Shadow Wing Focus Staff
Kazulyxia is the Black Dragonflight counterpart of Kazuligosa. She is, of course, wearing the robe made famous by Onyxia in her guise as Katrana Prestor. The rank 1 version of Wrathion’s Battle for Azeroth Legendary Cloak also seemed highly appropriate for this outfit.

24) A Red Dragon Princess


Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Helm, Mantle of the Elven Kings, Butcher’s Wrap, Cindercloth Vest, Veteran’s Silk Belt, Crimson Silk Pantaloons, Harvester’s Court Slippers, Archmage’s Staff*
Kazulistrasza is the Red Dragonflight counterpart of Kazuligosa.

23) A Green Dragon Princess


Dreamweave Circlet, Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Gladiator’s Mooncloth Robe, Sandswept Sandals, Inscribed Serpent Staff
Kazuliryssa is the green dragonflight counterpart of Kazuligosa.

22) A Bronze Dragon Princess


Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Robes of the Battleguard, Serenity Belt, Astralaan Pants, Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Fang of Nemaeus, Mawsworn Darkcaster’s Orb
Kazulidormi is the Bronze Dragonflight counterpart of Kazuilgosa.
See also Blood Elf Mage #99 for the pink glasses & robe version of this outfit.

21) Royal Guardian Serpent

Crown of the Righteous, Shoulders of Foaming Fluids (N), Royal Gown, Healer’s Belt of Final Winter (N), Eelskin Flippers (LFR), Fang of Nemaeus, Nathrian Tabernacle
This combo of Classic robe with Mists shoulders and belt is another of those ideas that has been in my Notebook for ages. Like most such ideas, the lengthy delay in creating the outfit has given me much better choices for the other pieces of the outfit than were available when I first had the idea.

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 (*).

101) Avatar



Tasteful Eyeglasses, Stylish Blue Shirt, Squallshaper Leggings, Stickyfoot Sandals, Fighter Broadsword + Tome of the Dawn
An attempt to make my Human Mages look like I do in the Real World, sort of. I wear my hair in a tail like Kaylynda most of the time, but it curls like Kayliddia’s hair when I wear it loose. My hair color is somewhere in between the orange of Kaylynda’s hair and the reddish-brown of Kayliddia’s hair. My body shape is definitely more Boralus than Stormwind.
The sword I chose is meant to represent these play swords that my husband spent much of the last year or two making.

They have an aluminum bar core encased in cardboard and/or foam, held together with wood glue or caulk or sewn cord, and, obviously, duct tape.

12) Tide Witch



Shirakess Headdress, Charlotte’s Chastizing Pauldrons, Squallshaper Vestments, Frost-Touched Cord, Sirensong Handwraps, Sirensong Slippers, Ebonchill (PvP, default tint)
To finish off this series, Kayliddia returns once more to her familiar, comfortable Tidesage robes. And it wanted the Nazjatar pirate hat, it just did.

11) Charlotte’s Extensive Mind


Charlotte’s Chastizing Pauldrons, Robes of Rasped Breaths, Deeptide Cinch, Gloves of the Arcane Purge, Ikeyen’s Boots, Jaina’s Staff
Here we have these shoulders with the matching robe and gloves for the Northrend style set of which they are a part. The outfit name comes from Mantle of the Extensive Mind, which is identical to Charlotte’s Chastizing Pauldrons.

120) Murex and Oxxein


Warmongering Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Initiate’s Necromantle Shoulders & Vestments, Hexweave Belt (stage 1), Elder’s Gloves & Boots, Death Fetish, Staff of Beasts
I initially liked the concept of this Necrolords backpiece as “Soul Shards” for my Warlock. This color, which matches the oxxein ore of Maldraxxus, is probably the only one of the four which I will obtain. Two of the other three are rewards from the Abomination Factory, an activity which I have no interest in doing, and the last is a drop from a tricksy rare spawn.
Murex is the genus of sea snails that produce the dye known as Tyrian purple — which is actually a red-violet rather than this bluish-violet, but I liked how the “x”s in the names went together.

119) Plagues and Poisons

Fel-Proof Goggles, Shawl of the Penitent (LFR), Barbarous Osteowings, Robes of the Cursed Commando (LFR), Twisted Sisters Handwraps, Slippers of the Forgotten Heretic (LFR), Journey’s End/Staff of the Plague Beast
Journey’s End matches the color of the robe so nicely, but Staff of the Plague Beast makes the overall ensemble look better — and works for a thematic naming motif, too.

118) Honorbound Wizard



Darckli’s Dragonfire Diadem, Honorbound Artificer’s Amice & Robes, Fearless Gladiator’s Silk Cord, Slippers of the Forgotten Heretic (LFR), Argent Conscript’s Drape (H), Bloodfire Greatstaff
More loyal to The Horde as an organization than many of my other characters, Kateleina’s ambition, might, insight, guile, and relentless desire for the success of those to whom she gives her loyalty make her an ideal candidate for the Necrolords.

117) Sin’Venthyr IV

Court Inquisitor’s Hood & Robes, Sin’dorei Pauldrons Belt & Slippers, Cuffs of Unrelenting Anguish, Fine Crimson Cloak, Golden Staff of the Sin’dorei
The wraps around the forearms are part of the Court Inquisitor’s Robes. These lovely Legion bracers dress them up even more nicely than the set bracers do.

116) Inquisitor At Court

Court Inquisitor’s Vestments with Hidden Shoulders & Cloak, Cord of Unhinged Malice (H) and Avowed Arcanist’s Staff
This set does come with shoulders — though I think they look better with the trousers outfit — and also looks quite smashing with a variety of other red and gold shoulders. For a ball, though, the shoulders really should just be bare. I’m not a great fan of the wiggly belt of the set itself; for cloth-wearers, this Hellfire Citadel piece substitutes quite nicely.

115) Crooked Soulbreaker

Soulbreaker’s Ebony Vestments with Hat of the Youngest Sister, Repression Belt, Noble’s Fancy Boots, Waycrest Guard’s Cloak, and Damnation
I had intended to do another iteration of the Sin’Venthyr concept next, but then it was Hallow’s End and I thought that one of the Crooked Tree hats might look good with the Campaign coloration of the Venthyr cloth gear.

114) Sin’Venthyr III


Harvester’s Court Attire with Sin’dorei Pauldrons Gauntlets & Cloak and Rod of the Blazing Light
The Harvester’s Court boots are just the bulky gold-trimmed boots I’ve been wanting to go with the bulky gold-trimmed gloves of the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor.

113) Harvester At Court


Harvester’s Court Attire with Arcanoshatter Mantle (H), Hidden Belt, and Gilded Sineater’s Staff
This set has no shoulders of its own. In addition to the shoulders shown here, it also looks fabulous with:

the Court Inquisitor’s Mantle, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Mantle,

Shoulderpads of Knowledge’s Pursuit, Mantle of the Elven Kings, and Duskhallow Mantle.

112) Noblesse Oblige


Chief Architect’s Monocle, Duskhallow Mantle, Nobleman’s Coat & Pantaloons, Black Mageweave Gloves, Slippers of the Forgotten Heretic (LFR), Parrotfeather Cloak, Suen-Wo (LFR)
Although I seem to recall reading somewhere that the blood magic Anima of the Mogu is not the same thing as the Anima of the Shadowlands, Suen-Wo still makes a great weapon for a Venthyr-themed outfit.
I originally designed this ensemble with the monocle, but it also looks great with

the Duskhaven Top Hat or the LFR Crown of the Seducer.

111) Municipal Functionary



Tasteful Eyeglasses, Mystical Armor/High Councillor’s Tunic, Dreamer’s Belt, Darkweave Breeches, High Councillor’s Boots, Formal White Shirt, Ancient Measuring Rod + Bureaucrat’s Handbook/Befouled Staff
This handsome fellow is Kaelinda’s “special someone”, Ianestin. Less adventurous than Kaelinda, he works in the Silvermoon City Ministry of Finance and pursues esoteric mathemagical research on the side. He has previously appeared, uncredited, as a male model for Kaelinda’s outfits 92, 88, and 72. This outfit is the in-game kit that I was imagining when I drew Kaelinda and Ianestin here and here, except for the boots, which are more like the leather Slippers of the Unruly Fairies in my drawings. The items in the wand + off-hand version of the kit were chosen not for their coordination with the rest of the ensemble but rather for the RP value of their names!
In the top row of pictures, the haircut & facial hair in the left picture are closest to how I have drawn Ianestin; they are apparently the default male Sin’dorei appearance in my brain. The haircut & facial hair in the middle picture are the result of using a Transmorphic Tincture on Kaelinda’s appearance; the haircut is serendipitously the same as Fabulor‘s hairdo (though not his facial hair), which makes it the epitome of fashionable male Sin’dorei grooming. The haircut & facial hair in the right picture are the appearance he chose after Sin’dorei men got new grooming options in Patch 9.0.
This one’s for you, Fabulor.
