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

61) 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?

52) 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.

51) Acherus Captain


Wapach’s Spaulders of Solidarity, Breastplate of the Imperial Joust, Dragonslayer’s Brace, Legplates of Relentless Onslaught, Cliffbreaker Gauntlets & Sabatons, Master Builder’s Shirt, Icier Barbed Spear/Blades of the Fallen Prince
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.

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.

1) Purple Plate Robe

Imperial Plate Shoulders, Breastplate of Many Graces, Girdle of the Righteous Path, Cassock of the Loyal, Jouster’s Gauntlets, Waterwalker Greatboots (LFR), Gale-Proof Cloak, Warmongering Combatant’s Mageblade
I know, I know, Purple Judgment is so cliche for a Death Knight. She’s not wearing it because she’s trying to be a Dark Paladin or somesuch nonsense, though. She’s wearing it because it’s a purple robe and she’s trying to be a Mage or somesuch nonsense 😉 The blue accessories help with that, don’t they?

4) Silvermoon Paragon

Judgment Spaulders, Bloodforged Chestpiece, Girdle of the Silver Hand, Hyperion Legplates Gauntlets & Greaves, Scarlet Filigreed Doublet, Silvermoon City Tabard, Blood Tempered Ranseur*/Hammer of the Penitent + Bayeaux Shield/Ashbringer (default, original tint)
I like to use the Hyperion set with the Silvermoon tabard because of the colors. Rather than just doing the same things I’ve done before with the Hyperion set, I decided to put on the Judgment shoulders. Then I was delighted by how nicely the Order Hall belt coordinated… which really shouldn’t have surprised me, given that the Judgment set and the Silver Hand set use similar red-black-gold color schemes.

3) Redeemed Blood Knight III


Fearless Combatant’s Scaled Shoulders Girdle Gauntlets & Sabatons, Liadrin’s Plate chestpiece & legplates, Blood Knight Tabard, Wild Gladiator’s Mageblade, Blood Knight Defender
I acquired the PvP recolor of the crafted Leystone set specifically so that I could make this combination with the Liadrin’s Plate set. I wonder… does the blue Alliance PvP recolor work equally well with the Turalyon’s Plate set?
Before I faction transferred her, I’d gotten my original Blood Elf Paladin up to about level 63 or 64, which was high enough to solo the pre-Cataclysm Blood Elf Paladin mount quest chain. Because by that point in Wrath the Paladin mounts were learned automatically with riding skills at level 20 & 40, I did the quest chain primarily to get the auxiliary reward of the Blood Knight Tabard — which then got transmuted into a generic guild tabard when I faction transferred her. I was relieved to see that my new Blood Elf Paladin had access to the Blood Knight Tabard in the Appearances collection.
For “Redeemed Blood Knight II” see “Things my Paladin Wears”, outfit #8.

2) Sunwell-Purified Soul

Sunsoul Battleplate
I never quite stopped missing my Blood Elf Paladin, so when Battle for Azeroth gave us golden-eyed Blood Elves, I re-rolled and Boosted her.
Boosted characters receive this armor set. It can also be obtained from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.

1) Redeemed Blood Knight I

Bloodscale pauldrons, Ursa’s Embrace, Leggings of the Ursa, Hyperion belt gloves & boots, Tranquillien Champion’s Cloak, Sin’dorei Warblade
Once upon a time, I had a Blood Elf Paladin. When Cataclysm gave us Tauren Paladins, I faction-transferred her into a Dwarf.
This set is a slight iteration of an outfit I originally described in “The Well-Dressed Paladin, Revisited” guest post I wrote for Manalicious.

Sunsong Armored Helm, Chilled Shoulderplates, Breastplate of Kel’balor, Dojani Girdle, Felsworn Legplates, Reinforced Hound-Handler’s Gauntlets (LFR), Lead-Soled Seabed Striders (LFR), Yak-Herder’s Longstaff
As promised, a more “everyday” sort of outfit using this combination of shoulders, gloves, and boots.

61) Funerary Plate of the Chosen Dead

Funerary Plate of the Chosen Dead (N)
Although my Paladin is the one who did the quest to get this set of armor, it seemed like my Warrior ought to be the one to wear it, to use it with the Fury Artifact swords.

16) Turalyon’s Victory


Turalyon’s Plate shoulders chestplate & legplates with Demonic Gladiator’s Scaled belt gloves & boots, Wild Gladiator’s Gavel, and King’s Bulwark
After making a kit for my new Blood Elf Paladin that combined Liadrin’s Plate with the red Horde PvP recolor of the crafted Leystone set, I wondered if Turalyon’s Plate would work equally well with the blue Alliance PvP recolor of the Leystone set. It didn’t, not at all — but it does look fabulous with the Alliance PvP recolor of the Antorus raid set.

15) Radiant Glory

Battleplate of Radiant Glory (N) with Stormwind Vanguard Polearm or Archon’s Gavel + Masterwork Spiritguard Shield
The Valkyra shieldmaidens of Stormheim wear a unique recolor of the Dragon Soul Paladin set. It is most like the LFR coloration, except brighter and more golden. At present, though, I only have the Normal mode version of the set.
As NPCs, the Valkyra can wield a polearm as a 1H weapon together with a shield. Players have to choose one or the other. This particular polearm is awarded from the pre-Leigon Broken Isles scenario and is thus faction specific. The Alliance version is this one, golden with a blue gem. The Horde version is dark grey, like tarnished silver, with a red gem.

14) Summer Sky-Guardian

Circle’s Stalwart Helmet, Embossed Plate Pauldrons Gloves & Boots, Icebane Chestguard, Girdle of Unity, Legplates of the Destroyer, Tabard of Summer Skies, Coldsinger Scepter, Skyguardian’s Shield
I could very easily have made this outfit all in blue… but because it’s for the Fire Festival, it needed to have some orange in it, too. Maybe I put too much orange in it? Oh well, I like it like this. The overall effect does look rather more balanced between orange and blue when I unsheathe the weapons.

13) Vindictive Highlord of the Alliance

Vindictive Gladiator’s Scaled Armor with Lightbringer Greathelm, Gladiator’s Salvation, and Maximillian’s Shield
It’s so nice that when I purchase a PvP appearance with a Horde-side character, I also get the corresponding Alliance appearance. 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.

12) Silver Covenant Spellbreaker

Imperial Plate Shoulders, Breastplate of the Lost Paladin, Lurker’s Girdle, Plates of Aku’mai, Warsong Gauntlets*, Icebane Treads, Silvermoon War-Mace, Spellbreaker’s Buckler
This outfit is a revision of a kit I originally created in mail for mini-Kam. The shoulders, chestpiece, and leggings are plate lookalikes of the crafted mail Blue Dragonscale set. The Bellipotent Gloves are a good alternate for the gloves.
I haven’t done Silver Covenant rep with Kyraleia, so looking at the outfit with the tabard on in the Dressing Room will have to suffice.

11) Boastful Humility

Crown of Boastful Words (LFR), Turalyon’s Spaulders of Conquest, Chestguard of Illumination, Truesteel Waistguard (3-670), Legguards of the Emerald Brood (H), Replica Gauntlets of Heroism, Sabatons of the Humble, Blue Linen Shirt, Mace of the Order, Azure-Shield of Coldarra
I originally designed this kit for the “Make Me Laugh” theme at the Trial of Style; I made a mostly-coherent kit with a somewhat silly hat and one wildly out-of-place item: the Bloodscale Belt.

It placed second, and I liked it enough to swap in a better-coordinating belt and keep wearing it.
