Once, this was my tribe…
(and she’d still wear the arm paint, though not the face paint, if that option becomes available in Shadowlands)

I was putting together a new plate outfit and the gloves I liked best for it were the ones from the Nazmir quest set. I tend to like like having matching gloves and boots.. but I didn’t yet have the Nazmir quest set boots. This wasn’t the first time I’ve wanted to use that particular set of gloves and boots — and because this coloration is red & gold, I know I’ll want them for my Blood Elf Paladin at some point or another. So I looked them up on Wowhead, and the quest chain to get them didn’t seem to be too deep into the swamp, from what I remembered from doing the zone with Kamalia. So one evening, I took my Paladin out to get those boots. It didn’t take very long at all.

Briefly, I wondered, Should I really spend playtime doing this? It doesn’t advance my primary game objectives
But I knew it would make me happy to have those boots in my collection, so I did it.
Then I thought, oh, I’ll go pick up the chestpiece, too — even if I have to quest through most of the zone to get it. But when I looked up Nazmani Warplate on Wowhead, no source was listed for the chestpiece… which means it probably drops from Azerite Armor caches from WQs at level 120. So I looked on the AH for the BOE lookalike (Torgashell) and was fortunate enough to find one for a price I could afford — but I’ll still have to level to 120 to wear it. And that will still have to wait until Kaelinda and Kaylynda and Kerisa have reached 120. Ah, well.

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

12) Aethrynn’s Judgment

Vindictive Gladiator’s Scaled Armor with Ferocious Gladiator’s Scaled Helm, Judgment Spaulders Belt & Gauntlets, Hyperion Vambraces, and Sin’dorei Warblade
The name for this set comes from Aethrynn’s Everwarm Chestplate, the BOE lookalike item for the Normal mode raid equivalent of this PvP chestpiece.
This combination only works for Horde characters because the Alliance version of the Vindictive Gladiator’s set is blue.

11) Indomitable Vows

Ferocious Gladiator’s Scaled Helm, Pauldrons of Roaring Flame, Breastplate of Solemn Vows, Crimson Girdle of the Indomitable, Honorary Combat Engineer’s Burnished Legplates, Conqueror’s Aegis Handguards, Master Cannoneer Boots, Cataclysm’s Edge
This kit started with the helm, shoulders, and boots, and then I had to figure out what went in the middle.

The leather lacings on the chestpiece of this set are an interesting and unusual design feature.

The Enchanted Thorium coloration is the most difficult to collect because the crafting pattern for the chestpiece is no longer available and the gloves used to be unavailable until they reappeared on the Dragons of Legend during the WoW’s Nth Anniversary event — so I chose “Imbued” as the most distinctive descriptor of the style.


Enchanted Thorium, Hyperion, Commander’s, Imbued Plate

Once again, I often use the gloves & boots from these sets as accessory pieces, so either the chestpiece or the leggings of the set had to be used for the outfit to qualify for inclusion in this collection.

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.

I’ve chosen to call this style “Runic”, even though the breastplate is smooth and the other pieces are decorated with a pretty filigree instead of runic patterns, because the crafted Runic Plate coloration is my favorite variation.


Emerald, Revenant, Thorium, Templar, Runic Plate, Lost Chestplate of the Reverent (shown with Runic Plate pants)

Although I use the belts, gloves, and boots of these armor sets frequently as accessory pieces, the outfits I’ve chosen for this collection focus on the signature piece of the armor design, the breastplate.

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 (*).

70) Sunwalker’s Warplate

Drake Talon Pauldrons, Plate of the Shaman King, Ogre Beater’s Belt, Legguards of the Fallen Crusader, Nazmani Warplate Gauntlets, Nazmani Warplate Treads, Warsword of the Ebon Blade, Skyhold Bulwark
Alas, the Grunt’s Plate items that match the chestpiece — and make up the outfit worn by Aponi Brightmane and Sunwalker Saern — are common quality (non-Moggable).
Because the shield comes from the Warrior Class Hall and the sword comes from the Death Knight Class Hall, this is an outfit I couldn’t have made if I hadn’t had a character of every Class at level 110 during Legion.

69) Sun Rock Sunset

Ferocious Gladiator’s Scaled Helm, Ancestral Chieftain’s Mantle Grasps & Totem, Plate of the Shaman King, Belt of the Sand Reaver, Legguards of the Fallen Crusader, Salt-Scorched Greaves, Swiftsteel Bludgeon, Fel-Iron Shield
“It is said that long ago, An’she himself kissed the mountain where [Sun Rock Retreat] now stands” — Spiritwalker Ussoh
The combination of the hat and the mace made me think of the red sun just before it goes down.

68) Ancestral Protector

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Plate of the Shaman King, Runic Plate Leggings, and The Hand of Antu’sul + Sternhorn’s Shield
This chestpiece was a natural choice for this kit, as it is worn by Baine’s Honor Guards and by various Sunwalker NPCs. I liked how the blue knees on these pants picked up on the blue accents on the headdress and gloves.

67) Dawnchaser Gladiator

Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Scaled Armor with Relentless Gladiator’s Ornamented Spaulders, Wild Gladiator’s Gavel, Masterwork Spiritguard Shield, and Thunder Bluff Tabard
Once, I thought Karaelia would never be able to wear the PvP Paladin set worn by Teya Dawnchaser. Fortunately, Legion‘s BOA Marks of Honor from the insta-WQ items available as a perk from certain Order Halls changed that for me. This outfit doesn’t perfectly mimic Teya’s gear, as she is wearing the Elite version of the Cataclysmic Gladiator set, but it’s close enough.

66) Night Knight

Booty Bay Helm, Replica Soulforge Pauldrons & Legplates, Breastplate of Many Graces, Uktar’s Belt of Chiming Rings (N), Sunstrider’s Gauntlets, Fen Strider’s Footguards, Pilfered Ethereal Blade, Revenant Deflector, Nightfallen Tabard
Karaelia quickly began to feel silly in the Zandalari plate armor. Having returned to the Broken Isles, she chose a Suramar outfit next. I kind of wanted to use the Hammer of Atonement for this kit, but it just didn’t feel Shaldorei enough.

65) Zandalari Monel-Hardened Armor

Monel-Hardened Armor with Thunder Caressed Waistguard, Monel-Hardened Cutlass and Monel-Hardened Shield
The Horde version of the Battle for Azeroth crafted plate armor matches the Zuldazar quest set.
I’ve swapped out the enormous set belt for something more trim.
Alliance characters wanting the Horde appearance should look for the Direbone Frill BOEs.

64) Highlord of the Silver Hand


Battleplate of the Silver Hand with Lightbringer Greathelm, Fearless Gladiator’s Greatcloak of Faith, Tabard of the Lightbringer, and Truthguard (upgraded, first tint)
Karaelia reached Exalted with Suramar at last, and now she can wear the Paladin Order Hall set.

63) Silver Hand Knight

Dojani Armor with Lighthammer Pauldrons, Crazy Cenarion Cloak, Tabard of the Lightbringer, and Ardent Warhammer
The Silver Hand Knights are the default 3-vitality troops of the Paladin Order Hall. I’d upgraded them to Templars… so then I had to switch to the upgrade for the 2-vitality troops to get them back to take pictures with this kit.

62) Silver Hand Templar

Truesteel Battleplate (stage 3) with Windfire Legplates (LFR), Vicious Fur Cloak, Tabard of the Lightbringer, and Gilded Warhammer
The pants the NPCs are wearing are more like a pants version of the robe skirt from the Siege of Orgrimmar set than the actual pants of that set.

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?
