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

72) Ancestral Survivalist

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Bloodmail Hauberk*, Sunfury Legguards, and Spear of Rethu
Although I really liked the mail chestpiece & pants I’d chosen for Kawneiha, I didn’t want to just repeat that combination for Ketura’s kit. I’d tried these pants as an alternate for Kawneiha’s set, so I knew I liked them with the rest of the pieces, but it took a few iterations to find a chestpiece that worked. The chestpiece I’m using dropped from Old Scholomance; if you haven’t got it, I also liked the how the Stage 1 Wayfaring Tunic looked.

71) Ancestral Hunt Leader

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Felstalker Breastplate, Scale Leggings of the Skirmisher, and Bow of the Great Hunter
I’m not all that fond of the chestpiece and leggings of the Shu’halo Heritage Armor, so I thought I’d try swapping them out for some other pieces.
Kawneiha will probably wear this kit for a very long time.

Although I’ve shown the colors of this set in rainbow order (more or less), I think that “Symbolic” is the best description of the style. The patterns have a runic quality that I think is particularly appropriate for Death Knights, especially in the red, blue, and black colorations.

The Runed Copper set is one of the first sets that an apprentice Blacksmith can learn to craft, and, interestingly, it was not changed from mail to plate at the beginning of Legion.


Bloodforged, Sunscale, Symbolic, High Chief’s, Darkrune Breastplate (shown with Symbolic set), Runed Copper (mail)

This is another style for which the gloves and boots are among my favorite accessory pieces, so for this collection, either the chestpiece or the leggings of the set had to be used (and be visible, not hidden by a tabard) for the outfit to qualify for inclusion.

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

14) On the Rim of the Sky II

Headguard of Vast Destruction, Dragonrider’s Harness Legguards & Grips, Wild Combatant’s Waistguard of Cruelty, Battlebound Treads, Chagan’s Cheery Chopper, Kaskala Buckler
This chestpiece looks cooler on Kjerstin than it did on Kamalia, partly because Kjerstin’s paler skin tone allows greater contrast with the tattoo markings and partly because Kamalia’s mane obscured much of the tattoo pattern on the back.

13) Azsh’ari Stormsurger

Azsh’ari Stormsurger Benthic Mail Armor with Boggspine Knuckles and Wheel of the Lost Hope
After Kamalia obtained a complete Benthic armor set but didn’t want to wear it as her next outfit, Kjerstin got to wear it instead.
I prefer it without the hat, though. I think the starfish over the eye just looks silly.
I thought I’d take the pictures for this outfit in Vashj’ir… but having been Boosted, Kjerstin hasn’t actually opened that portal yet.

12) Whispering Woods

Crone-Seeker’s Chainmail with Wheel of the Lost Hope
Interestingly, doing Battle for Azeroth quests on a character of one faction automatically awards the corresponding quest reward appearances to a character of the other faction. Thus, by the time Kamalia had quested all the way through Zandalar, Kjerstin’s wardrobe had filled up with the Kul Tiras quest mail armor.
After Winter Veil ended, Kjerstin wore her Ironforge Magma-Shaper kit until Kamalia had quested all the way through Zandalar and she could don a full set of Kul Tiran chainmail before even setting foot on the fabled island nation. This coloration of the Kul Tiras quest mail armor is obtained in Drustvar. Horde characters wishing to obtain this appearance should look for the Barrowknoll set on the AH.
I love the plaid-patterned padding under the leather and mail in this armor design!

11) Elements of Holiday Cheer

Green Winter Clothes with Bog Epaulets, Unyielding Fists, Brackwater Boots, Zangarra Scepter, and Emerald Shield/Red Winter Clothes with Engraved Pauldrons, Gauntlets of Divinity*, Boots of the Skybreaker, Firecrystal Mace, and Crest of Supremacy
The red version of this outfit turned out much better than the green, I think. The gloves I used are from the original version of Scarlet Monastery; if I didn’t happen to have them, I would have used the Bloodlust Gauntlets.
Unless I have some fabulous idea for a new kit, Kjerstin will go right back to wearing her Ironforge livery (#10) when the holiday is over.

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

100) Ancestral Chieftain’s Blessing

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor
This isn’t really Kamalia’s 100th outfit, because she shares these pages with mini-Kam; and I’ve already made over 100 total Shaman outfits because of the ones on Kjerstin’s pages. Nevertheless, I wanted the official Outfit #100 to be something special. The Shu’halo Heritage Armor is perfect for that purpose.

99) Venerated of Zandalar


Pauldrons of Venerated Spirits (LFR), Stormstrike Vest, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Links of Accuracy, Isle Watcher’s Leggings, Torcali’s Grips of the Bounty, Gral Worshipper’s Waders, Tabard of the Zandalari Empire, The Fist of Ra-den/Doomhammer (Hidden appearance, 200 WQ tint)
The Troll-themed Antorus shoulders and Hidden appearances of the Elemental and Enhancement Artifact weapons were the natural choices to complement the Zandalari Empire tabard.

98) Roiling in the Deep

Mrgglurggl Spaulders & Grips, Dragonkiller Tunic, Axeclaw Belt, Legguards of Sleeting Arrows, Moccasins of Verdurous Glooms, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Sharas’dal (upgraded, first tint)
I have long wanted to pair Sharas’dal with the lookalike version of the Naga/Murloc-themed Bastion of Twilight/Blackwing Descent Hunter Tier set. Alas, there was no lookalike item for the key piece of the set, the shoulders. The Mrgglurggl set from Battle for Azeroth‘s Island Expeditions solves this problem handily.

97) On the Rim of the Sky


Headguard of Vast Destruction, Dragonrider’s Harness, Industrial Lifting Belt, Charger’s Pants, Battlebound Grips & Treads, Ironsoul
I acquired this chestpiece and designed this outfit more with future use by a Dwarf or Kul Tiran Shaman in mind than for Kamalia herself.

96) Resilience of the Dunes

Resilient Outcast’s set with Fel-Chain Spaulders, Girdle of the Chosen Dead (LFR), and Sethrak Warden’s Staff
This is the Vol’dun coloration of the Zandalar leveling mail armor. Alliance characters wishing to obtain this appearance should look for the Bonepicker set on the AH.

95) Torcalin Teal

Torcalin Chainmail with Barrage Shoulders, Fel-Chain Cinch, Reliquary Explorer’s Drape, and Grave Watcher’s Longstaff
This coloration of the Zandalar leveling mail set is obtained in Zuldazar. The Horde appearance of the Shimmerscale Armor, the Battle for Azeroth crafted mail armor, matches this set. Alliance characters wishing to obtain this appearance should look for the Ravascale set on the AH.

94) Rivermane Rockbreaker


Whitewater set with Marksman’s Girdle, Highmountain Tabard, Rivermane War Harness, and Doomhammer
After Kamalia had recruited the Highmountain Tauren to join the Horde, mini-Kam got a makeover to become a Highmountain Tauren.
This is simply the Highmountain coloration of the Legion leveling mail set, with a plainer belt swapped in to allow the whole tabard to be seen.

93) Mulgore-Highmountain Liason

Willow Spaulders, Farseer’s Harness & Gauntlets, Lifecycle Waistguard (H), Infection Resistant Legguards, Tabard of the Highmountain Tribe, Battlehammer of the Sunwalker, Fel-Iron Shield, Highmountain War Harness
Kamalia chose this outfit, a variation on her earlier Highmountain Spirit-Guardian kit (#70), to wear to Baine’s grand feast for Mayla and the other Highmountain Tauren leaders.

92) Feathered Serpent

Totem Matriarch’s Headdress, Fel-Chain Spaulders, Willow Band Hauberk*, Vintage Duskwatch Cinch (N), Ulfgor’s Greaves of Bravery, Gauntlets of the Windreacher, Green Iron Boots, Axe of Rin’ji
This hat is super nifty because it’s a mail lookalike of an awesome cloth hat design. When Kamalia Prime picked it up from the corpse of a vignette creature in Nazmir, it didn’t fit with her current outfit very well — so mini-Kam gets to wear it instead.

91) Dazar’alor Daze

Death-Pledged Armor with Battleforge Shoulderguards, Fel-Chain Cinch, Zardax’s Tattered Drape, Mambo Hex Axe, and Loa-Binder Disc
I wasn’t initially a fan of the Zandalar mail leveing gear when I saw it in preview images, but now that I’ve seen it up close, I rather like it — as long as I swap out the helm, shoulders, and belt, that is. This coloration of the set comes from Nazmir.
Alliance characters wishing to obtain this appearance should look for the Zalamar set on the AH.

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

5) Emberhawk

Vindictive Gladiator’s Chain Armor with Crown of Flame (N), Ebon Filigreed Doublet, and Emberhawk Crossbow
With its elvish styling, the Horde PVP recolor of the Emerald Nighthold Hunter tier set is especially well-suited to Blood Elves.

4) Windrunners’ Torn Hearts

Fox Grove Spaulders, Fuselight Chainmail, Doc’s Belt, Traveling Leggings, Edgemaster’s Handguards, Fox Grove Sabatons, Lohn’goron, Bow of the Torn-Heart
Karolissa had been wanting a “Quel’dorei” outfit using the blue and silver recolor of the Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix.

3) Empyrial Legacy II






Empyrial Elemental Crown, Demonic Combatant’s Chain Spaulders, Bramblemail Hauberk, Skettis Belt, Manaburst Legguards, Mojo-Mender’s Gloves, Lifestep Treads, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Thas’dorah (upgraded, first tint)
A modification of a kit that I originally designed for Kamalia. Although the grey-and-purple gloves and boots that I used with this outfit for Kam — which worked for her because of her gray fur — looked very nice with the grey feathers of Thas’dorah, they didn’t work at all with the rest of the outfit for Karolissa.

2) 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
Karolissa made her Sunday Mog Show debut wearing an Illidari Trophy Tabard kit because making a mail outfit to go with this tabard had 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.

1) Seeking the Windrunners’ Trail

Trailseeker set with Thas’dorah (default, Pillar of Creation tint)
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.
Boosted characters receive this gear. It can also be obtained from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.

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

10) Ironforge Magma-Shaper


Volcanic Pauldrons, Wayfaring Tunic (stage 1), Lightning Well Belt, Sanctified Frost Witch’s Legguards (25H), Erupting Volcanic Handwraps (N), Decimation Treads (N), Ironforge Tabard, Ironfoe, Royal Treasury Courier’s Shield
Usually I name outfits after I create them, while I’m writing them up to post. In this case, however, I had the idea for what I wanted to call Kjerstin’s Ironforge Tabard kit before I started designing it. These shoulders worked perfectly for that thematic motif, and then I built the rest of the outfit around that item.

9) Bright Brewmaiden


Captain’s set with Green Brewfest Hat, Golden Scale Shoulders, Knuckle Down, and Professor’s Sandwich Plate
An outfit mimicking the appearance of the Bright Brewmaiden summoned by the Bubbliest Brightbrew Charm dropped by Coren Direbrew. The NPC wears shoulders that are a unique recolor of the Priest T5 model, but the rest of her outfit is just the mail Captain’s set. Not having any decent maces to hand to Mog into tankards because I haven’t gotten around to doing the Doomhammer questline with Kjerstin yet, I chose the most inconspicuous fist weapon and the simplest platter-like shield from my collection to Mog over the Elemental Artifact.
A more accurately Brewmaiden-like hat would be the Thunderbringer’s Guard

— but I wanted to wear the Brewfest Hat.

8) 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.

7) 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!

6) 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.

5) Vindictive Farseer of the Alliance

Vindictive Gladiator’s Ringmail Armor with Helmet of Ten Storms and Sundered Waistband
It’s so nice that when I purchase a PvP appearance with a Horde-side character, I also get the corresponding Alliance appearance. Whenever there is gear with faction-dichotomous appearances, I almost always like the Alliance version better.
I looked at some other options for weapons, but the base appearance of the Elemental Artifact complements this armor so well that nothing else was better.

4) Stream Talker

Streamtalker Set with Squire’s Shirt
Boosted characters recieve this set of gear. It can also be obtained from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.

3) Darkmoon Daredevil

Sparkleshell Mantle, Darkmoon Breastplate, Belt of the Gladiator, Soldier’s Leggings, Wastewalker’s Gauntlets*, Sabatons of the Flamewalker, Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Tremendous Tankard O’Terror, Driftmire Shield*
Don’t be fooled by the huge tankard — it’s just for show. Whether the mount is animal or mechanical, she’s one of the sharpest stunt riders at the Faire.
One thing the Transmogrification interface doesn’t tell me is if an item I’ve chosen is something that isn’t available anymore… /headdesk.

The Ice Cream Mitts are an excellent alternative for the gloves. The Shield of the Barrens is the most comparable shield design.

2) Glittering Prize

Glimmering Mail Pauldrons & Girdle, Lambent Scale Breastplate & Legguards, Mail Combat Gauntlets & Boots, Competitor’s Tabard, Thun’grim’s Mace*, Glyphed Buckler
An outfit using the Competitor’s Tabard from the in-game Battleground participation event celebrating the 2008 Summer Olympics, in honor of the 2016 Summer Olympics. At level 30, Kjerstin was able to use the chestpiece & leggings from my original Competitor’s Tabard mail designs, but she had to choose different gloves & boots. Although the cloth and leather kits looked complete without shoulders, I felt like the heavier appearance of the mail items was more balanced with shoulders included.
This mace was one of the possible rewards from a pre-Cataclysm low-level Horde Warrior questchain.

1) Element-Speaker

Mystical Pauldrons Vest & Kilt of Elements, Stormbringer Belt, Defender Gauntlets, Mail Combat Boots, Spell Axe of the Farseer, Royal Treasury Courier’s Shield
Kjerstin spent most of her early existence wearing variations on this outfit.

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

70) Beefcake/Cheesecake

Orgrimmar Leggings, Scalping Tomahawk + Sternhorn’s Shield/Dustwallow Impaler
Kamalia’s parents were quite the lookers in their youth.
This fashion suits Tauren particularly well, I think 😉

69) Breaker of Polluted Shrines

Shrinebreaker set with Dragon-Quake Shoulderguards, Tracker’s Belt, and Huntmaster’s Rifle
This is the mail Broken Shore WQ set. Although Kamalia collected it, she hadn’t gotten around to wearing it. So when Ketura wanted a new kit, I thought, eh, why not use this one? Too often I collect a set and then two or three expansions go by before I actually use it.
I don’t usually swap out Ketura’s pet to match her clothes — she’s too attached to the Mulgore cougar she’s had since level 10 — but something about this outfit wanted a darker colored pet to go with it.

68) Mulgore Huntmaster

Annihilator’s Mantle, Chestguard of Relentless Storms, Veteran’s Ringmail Girdle, Gryphon Mail Legguards, Talhide Lined-Gloves, Wild Stalker Boots, Bow of the Great Hunter, Thunder Bluff Tabard
Ketura had been wearing her previous outfit for a rather long time, but I hadn’t had any inspiration for a new kit. So I took her to the Trial of Style, hoping that I might come up with something worth keeping. I threw this outfit together for the “Tabard Time” theme, and it won the round.

67) Mountain Trails


Bearzerker’s Spaulders, Trailseeker Vest Gauntlets & Greaves, Marksman’s Girdle, Veteran’s Legguards, Cloak of Enthralling Darkness, Eagletalon Spear
Another take on an Unseen Path outfit.

66) 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.
After the holiday ended, I wasn’t feeling any particular inspiration for a new outfit, so I put Kawneiha back into her “Great Tauren Hunter” kit (#54).

65) Triumphant Flame

Triumphant set with Helm of the Fire Festival, Mantle of the Fire Festival, Masterwork Leggings, and Emberhawk Crossbow
A silly outfit for the Midsummer Fire Festival.
There are other plate-like golden mail sets (Masterwork, Radiant, Sparkleshell) and a handful of scale-like golden mail sets (Burnished, Dreamwalker, Captain’s, Glimmering). I like the Triumphant set best with the festival helm and shoulders, but you may like one of these other sets better.

64) Unseen Path Blues

Warmongering Gladiator’s Chain Helm & Armor, Stained Shoulderguards, Wild Combatant’s Waistguard of Cruelty, Spider Venom Legguards, Trailseeker Gauntlets & Greaves, Wolfsfur Greatcloak
Several Unseen Path NPCs are wearing an outfit consisting of the chestpiece from the normal mode HFC Hunter Tier set with the Bearzerker’s Spaulders, Warmongering Combatant’s Waistguard of Cruelty, Trailseeker gloves & boots, Marshwater Mantle, and a pair of leather pants that don’t have a mail equivalent.
I’m so very very fond of the blue-white-gold color scheme that whenever there is gear with faction-dichotomous appearances, I almost always like the Alliance version better. Warlords did an interesting thing with the Gladiator PvP sets in Seasons 2 & 3: for both seasons, the gear models were the same as the HFC Tier sets, but in Season 2, each faction got their own color (red-tinted for Horde, blue-tinted for Alliance), and in Season 3, the set was now the other faction’s color (blue-tinted for Horde, red-tinted for Alliance).

63) Seeker for the Tribe


Stormforged Shoulders, Shamblehide Chestguard, Sash of the Grand Hunt, Barbaric Legstraps, Murkblood Oven Mitts, Marauder’s Boots, Kodo Mallet + Sternhorn’s Shield/Tribute Gun, Thunder Bluff Tabard
Kamalia and Kawneiha do the “Mom & Me” thing to show off weapons to coordinate with this kit for both of the mail-wearing classes.

62) Arrowsplitter of the Silver Covenant or the Blue Flight



Shoulders of Lightning Reflexes, Blue Dragonscale Breastplate, Doc’s Belt, Blue Dragonscale Leggings, Finder’s Keepers, Star-Strider Boots, Lohn’goron/Crypt Fiend Slayer
A modified version of an outfit originally designed for mini-Kam — but elves can’t be Shaman, so I’ve re-envisioned it for a Hunter.

61) Zealous Houndkeeper

Helm of Affinity, Ravager’s Mantle, Inferno Forged Hauberk, Scarlet Belt & Gauntlets, Oronok’s Old Leggings, Bloodmail Boots*, Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade, Ashjre’thul, Crossbow of Smiting
I know there’s a full Scarlet Crusade mail set, which can be purchased at the Darkmoon Faire by a mail-wearer wearing the Scarlet Crusade tabard — but I’d rather build my own kit.
I wasn’t feeling quite satisfied with any of the gun or bow options available to a level 60 character, so I looked at crossbows, which I rarely use. Huh, when did I get this crossbow? Ah, it drops in Blackwing Lair. I must have picked it up while I was farming BWL with all my alts about a year ago, but I didn’t pay much attention to it because I prefer guns or regular bows.
