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 (*).

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?

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

59) Pestilence



Deathlord’s Battleplate with The Horseman’s Horrific Hood, Truesteel Waistguard (stage 1), Blackrock Legplates, Demon Commander’s Drape, and Apocalypse (default, original tint)
I wanted to do this outfit concept for Hallow’s End last year, but at the time, I was still way too far behind on the Suramar rep I needed for the shoulders.

58) Ancestral Gravewalker

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Antiseptic-Soaked Dressing, Tarnished Fanatic’s Wargreaves, and Mighty Gorian Cleaver
This was the most difficult kit to get right. Eventually, I decided that the set bone chestpiece was the best for a DK, so I put in a shirt. Though these pants are Trollish in origin, they have the same bone aesthetic, plus those gnarly skulls on the knees.

57) Emberwyrm

Jewel of the Firelord, Blackrock Pauldrons Gauntlets & Greaves, Carapace of Imbibed Flame (H), Foundry-Fired Plate Girdle, Legplates of Frenzied Devotion (H), Blades of the Fallen Prince (upgraded, third tint)
Darkness and ice get so boring sometimes, so let’s try darkness and fire for a while.
The imminent return of the Midsummer Fire Festival may also have had something to do with choosing a firey outfit.

56) Nightwell Liberator

Doomplate Shoulderguards, Darkrune Breastplate, Bogslayer Belt, Weaponmaster’s Legplates, Lucidity Handwraps, Thunderpeak Greatboots, Edge of the Cosmos/Black Ice, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Nightfallen Tabard
Having set Kregga to (very slowly) gathering Nightfallen Paragon chests, I decided she should dress the part. The “of the Nightfall” title completes the look for this Nightfallen Tabard outfit.
I tried the Lavender Mageweave Shirt, as well. It matches the color of the design on the tabard nicely — but I also felt that it distracted too much from the tabard.

55) Crown of Frost and Shadow


Jandvik set with Crown of Eternal Winter, Girdle of Eternal Memory, Tabard of the Ebon Blade, and Slayer of the Lifeless
Kregga wanted to get in on the spooky frost crown fun, too. I took the hat off when she visited the Chamber of the Heart, though, lest it be in the wrong phase of its animation at the crucial screenshot moments.

54) Blood Furnace

Bloody Bandanna, Shoulderplates of the Eternal, Heavy Mithril Breastplate, Fleshless Girdle, Greaves of the Martyr, Blackrock Gauntlets & Greaves, Bloodied Ebon Warsword
I’d made kits with the green and blue versions of this sword, so I figured I might as well make an outfit with the red one to complete the set.
It’s a bit confusing how the term “greaves” is sometimes used for legplates and sometimes used for boots. This outfit has examples of both!

53) Unholy Rooksguard

Rooksguard Armor with The Horseman’s Horrific Hood, Veteran’s Scaled Belt, and Unholy Ebon Warsword
I initially thought the nubbly texture of the Legion plate leveling sets was kind of neat — until I looked closely, and then it became entirely too creepy. This coloration, which is obtained in Val’sharah, is perfect for a DK during Hallow’s End, though!

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.

9) Magesmith

Light Magesmith Robe*, Vindicator Boots, Decalcified Elven Spear
It occurred to me that Kandrista could also play the role of a blonde pseudo-High Elf.
This is a pure RP-Clothes outfit. This non-Moggable recolor of the White Linen Robe style was a rare drop from the Frostmane Trolls in pre-Cataclysm Dun Morogh. Kaelinda collected it during her Alliance adventures.

8) Ulduar Strike Force

Mana-Sphere Shoulderguards, Robe of the Great Dark Beyond, Windroc Greaves, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Rimefang’s Claw
No belt is needed because the belt design is part of the robe.
This is the last of the Blue-Haired High Elf NPCs I wanted to imitate with my Blue-Haired Blood Elf Death Knight. I’m not quite sure what Kandrista will do after this. Revisit some of my favorite blue kits from the Underpowered Death Knight’s wardrobe, perhaps?

7) Dalaran Quel’dorei

Elder Wizard’s Mantle, Lesser Wizard’s Robe, Serenity Belt, Windroc Greaves, Shadowvine Cloak of Infusion, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Decalcified Elven Spear
This RP-Clothes set is the same as the “Dalaran Wizard” outfit I’ve made previously for my Mages.

6) Kirin Tor Conjurer


Pauldrons of Arcane Rage, Robes of the Augurer, Manaspark Gloves, Misshapen Boots, Decalcified Elven Spear
This kit was originally inspired by Conjurer Awlyn and her associates (the NPCs who summoned the Insta-WQ item for the Mage Order Hall in Legion). The Kirin Tor Emissary who now appears in the new Orgrimmar portal room shares Awlyn’s appearance.
This polearm has the same model as a set of staves, which makes it perfect for a DK pretending to be a Mage.

5) Shards of a Scorned Heart

Forever-Lovely Rose, Mantle of the Resolute Champion, Truesteel Breastplate & Greaves (stage 2), Bloodscale Belt, Darkcrest Gauntlets, Thorium Boots, Shard of Scorn
I was feeling like I might have drawn the well of inspiration for Love is in the Air kits featuring the Bloodscale Belt dry, but Kandrista insisted that she needed a Bloodscale Belt outfit, too. I’d kind of been wanting to try using the deep maroon of the stage 2 Truesteel items in a Bloodscale Belt kit. I think this works rather well.

4) Frozen Heart

Crown of Eternal Winter, Night Commander’s Pauldrons, Chestplate of the Great Aspects, Shieldguard Girdle, Bone-Inlaid Legguards, Flash Freeze Gauntlets (N), Lead-Soled Seabed Striders (LFR), White Linen Shirt, Fang of the Leviathan
It was significantly cheaper to use a white shirt than to use the Barbershop to change Kandrista’s skin tone from the palest pink available to a normal Blood Elf to one of the deathly blue-white or blue-gray tones available only to Death Knight Blood Elves.

3) Crystalline

Pauldrons of the High Requiem, Iceguard Breastplate & Leggings, Rainbow Girdle, Gauntlets of Annihilation, Boots of Courage Unending, Life and Death
This outfit would also look magnificent on a Night Elf, Nightborne, or Void Elf Warrior.
Kandrista shakes her head at me as if to say, “you don’t need any of these other elves as Warriors, silly, you have me.”

2) Blue Dragon Princess



Recruit’s Robe*, everything else hidden (or taken off), Dragonscale-Encrusted Longblade
This RP-clothes outfit mimics the appearance of Stellagosa. The dress is the level 1 Draenei Mage robe; Kaelinda brought it home from her faction-change adventure just before Cataclysm. Sadly, that trick can no longer be done, because Mists made the level 1 starter clothes soulbound. The Astralaan Robe is the same style, though in white and purple instead of blue and purple, and the Anchorite’s Robes from the Aldor is similar colors, though a different Draenei style.

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?
