This installment features the third and final outfits in the series I’ve been doing using the plate and cloth quest reward gear from Zandalar, plus my take on the Eternal Palace LFR cloth set.

Dunecrawler

Exiled Veteran’s set with Nazmani Warplate helm & shoulders, hidden belt, Pennant Cloak, and Skycaller’s Ceremonial Mace
The Zandalar quest plate sets have the shoulders and helm in a contrasting color to the rest of the items, so one has to mix-and-match sets to get a monochromatic color scheme. This combination, which is not quite so monochromatic as the other possibilities, uses the Nazmir helm & shoulders with the rest of the set from Vol’dun.

Desert Thunderstorm

Nightvale Cowl, Nightvale Mantle, Sandspinner Vestments, Imbued Silkweave Cinch, Scrollbound Arachnid Gloves, Marshfang Boots, Akunda Adherent’s Cloak, Master Builder’s Shirt, Sethrak Warden’s Staff
The skies darken suddenly over the desert. Lightning flashes and thunder rumbles. Rain pours down. Gullies and washes roar with flash floods. Just as suddenly, everything is calm again. The desert plants unfurl fresh leaves and bright flowers.
This coloration of the Zandalar cloth quest set is obtained from Vol’dun.
Although the Dustwind Cowl matches the colors of the robe perfectly —

— I’m not a fan of the blinded eyes style.

Under The Sea


Pearlescent Spaulders, Siren Mystic’s Vestments, Belt of Blind Devotion, Gloves of Unshackled Arcana, Eelskin Flippers, Tabard of the Dreamweavers, Plundered Oracle Fin Staff
These are the pieces I wanted out of the Eternal Palace LFR set, so when I’d gotten them all, I was done. I like the design of the skirt of the robe but not the blouse, so it’s a good thing that this pretty tabard has just the right coordinating color to cover it up. It’s fun that the dimensional pearl brooch still shows over the tabard.
Nazjatar has some pretty spots, but it can’t beat Vashj’ir for gorgeous undersea scenery.

This series of posts began because I set myself a goal to document new Transmogrification outfits in a more timely fashion. As soon as I create a new outfit, I write it up in a draft post. As the weekend approaches, I start working on taking fashion screenshots, processing them, and updating “Things my [Class] Wears” posts. On Sunday — though not every Sunday — I publish the collection of my recent efforts. Then I begin the next “Sunday on the Promenade” draft post.

Occasionally, I have ideas for themed Transmogrification collections that take several months to completely assemble. Thus, some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of such a themed Transmogrification collection.

Another week, another set of new clothes.

Tidesage

Tidespeaker/Sagehold set with Squirgle’s Deepstone Wand and Tortollan Traveling Lantern
It was this robe that, when datamined in a Legion patch PTR, gave the first clue that we’d be going to Kul Tiras in the next expansion.
Fittingly, this set is obtained by questing in Stormsong Valley, where the Tidesages have their major settlement.

Deep Tides

Deeptide set with Stagheart Staff
This is the Nazjatar zone drop recolor of the Benthic cloth set. As with the leather Nazjatar armor, I prefer the grey and softer green of the zone drop version of the set to the red and brighter green of the Benthic version of the set.
I love how this hat is a combination of a wizard hat and a tricorne!

Blood of the Chosen

Cowl of the Grand Engineer, Mantle of the Chosen Dead, Loa Speaker/Bloodhex robe & gloves, Cord of Unhinged Malice (N), Wild Gladiator’s Treads of Cruelty, Zardax’s Tattered Drape, Sawbones Shirt*, Korthek’s Staff
This brighter coloration of the Zandalar cloth quest set is obtained from Nazmir.

Zul’Aman’Dazar




Red: Saurifeather Crest & Mantle, Robes of Dissention/Faded Sprit-Wrencher Robe
Blue: Bloodhex Headdress & Mantle, Forlorn Loa-Binder Robe
Green: Skycaller Cowl & Mantle, Hexing Robes
All: Bloodhex Gloves, Stanchion of Primal Instinct

These robes, originally from Zul’Aman and later from the Isle of Thunder, coordinate nicely with the feathered hats and pauldrons from Zuldazar. My favorite combination, which Kaohana continued to wear after the Mog photoshoot, is the green one.

Malachite

Direbone Frill set with Exiled Veteran’s helm & shoulders, Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Clasp of Meditation, Pterroleather Cloak, and Sethrak Warden’s Scimitar
The Zandalar quest plate sets have the shoulders and helm in a contrasting color to the rest of the items, so one has to mix-and-match sets to get a monochromatic color scheme. This combination uses the Vol’dun helm & shoulders with the rest of the set from Zuldazar.

These outfits were fun to put together.

Port Authority

Grey Tricorne Hat, Bloodbough Mantle, Nobleman’s Coat, Standard Issue Airborne Belt, Nobleman’s Pantaloons, Archaeologist’s Quarry Boots*, Nola’s Shawl, Hacksaw Skinning Knife, Crow’s Nest Spotlight
When I first discovered how small the average amount of Seafarer’s Doubloons awarded for a single Island Expedition run is, I thought I’d just settle for getting this faction-neutral version of the Tricorne Hat. By the time I’d gotten this hat, though, I was really quite enjoying the relatively mindless run-around-and-smash-things gameplay of Island Expeditions — so I think I’ll eventually collect enough Doubloons to get the other two colors of the Tricorne Hat, too.

Zanchuli Dreamer

Nimar’s Tribal Headdress, Night Dreamer Mantle, Zanchuli Raiment, Shadra Silk Gloves, Wild Gladiator’s Treads of Cruelty, Sawbones Shirt*, Golden City Greatcloak, Grave Watcher’s Longstaff
This coloration of the Zandalar cloth quest set comes from Zul’dazar. The robe also looks spectacular with the stage 1 Hexweave Mantle and the Illidari Shoulderpads

— though ultimately I preferred the more subdued look of these Broken Isles shoulders.
Although I frequently toggle Kalaneia’s hair color between black and silver, I rarely change her hair style. This headdress, however, needed a hairstyle that would show it off more cleanly.

Blood Champion of Zandalar

Rastari helm & shoulders, Nazmani Warplate chest legs gloves boots, Abandoned Zandalari Bucklebreaker, Fallen Spider Handaxe, Loa-Bound Defender, Crimson Silk Cloak
The Zandalar quest plate sets have the shoulders and helm in a contrasting color to the rest of the items, so one has to mix-and-match sets to get a monochromatic color scheme. This combination uses the Zuldazar helm & shoulders with the rest of the set from Nazmir.

Nether Tempest

Netherwind Mantle, Manaweave Robe, Netherwind Belt, Netherwind Boots, Ethereum Life-Staff
When my oldest child was a little baby, I spent a great deal of time farming Molten Core and Blackwing Lair. I collected most of the Netherwind set — then got tired and decided that, you know what? I wasn’t that fond of the Netherwind Mantle anyway, and maybe I’d try that robe with some different shoulders.
Recently, I found myself looking at the set and thinking, you know what? I’m not really all that fond of that robe, and maybe I ought to try the shoulders with a different robe… So back to Blackwing Lair I went, until I’d gotten the Netherwind Mantle.

Valorous Dreamwalker




Valorous Dreamwalker set with Unwavering Stare and Scythe of Elune (default, 4th tint)
This seemed like an appropriate set for Kerisa to wear while doing the “A Fresh Trauma” and “In Darkness, I Dream” questlines for the Heart of Azeroth.

Some cheerful outfits for Noblegarden Sunday, some wintery outfits because we’re still getting occasional snow where I live, and some Nazjatar outfits for recently-dinged-120 alts.

Queen of Spring

Crown of Boundless Courage, Elegant Dress, Sea Sculptor’s Cuffs, Eelskin Flippers, Crystalheart Pulse-Staff
Pretty pretty princess! These golden accessories from the Eternal Palace raid are the perfect accompaniments for the pink gown.

Spring Sunshine


Yellow Spring Circlet/Fen Spirit Headdress, Fen Spirit Mantle, Robe of Solomon*, Girdle of Nobility, Blessed Gloves of Undead Cleansing*, Slippers of Serenity, Gorian Staff
Kaelinda wanted an outfit with the yellow bunny ears. The quest that awarded it having vanished in the Shattering, this particular robe is no longer available —

— but the very similar Bright Robe also looks good.

Noble’s Spring Celebration


Pink Spring Circlet, Noble’s Robe, Gnomish Inventor Boots, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Wand of Happiness, Suntouched Flowers
The combination of colors created by using this shirt with this robe is like the hyacinths in the flower beds around the front steps of my house.

Amisi’s Amiga

Nightvale Cowl, Mantle of the Champion, Vestments of the Shifting Sands, Amaranthine Leggings, Nightvale Wristwraps, Kurkenstoks, Eye-Blinder Greatcloak, Rolfsen’s Ripper, Symbol of Transgression
Amisi Azuregaze and her husband Arille are the proprietors of the Legerdemain Lounge in Dalaran. Since their introduction in Wrath, I’ve been quite fond of them for being a mixed-race couple not only as in High Elf + Human but also as in fair + dark.
Ha, I didn’t even realize until I went to take the pictures how much Kimmellyn looks like Amisi!

Moonfrost


Crown of Eternal Winter/Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Shoulderpads & Leggings of the Chosen Dead, Lo’ap’s Tunic, Briarback Cinch, Trickster’s Handwraps, Boots of the Forked Road, Jaded Crystal Dagger
I designed this outfit some time ago, but decided to delay using it until I’d unlocked the Night Warrior appearance because I thought it would look even more awesome against that complexion.

Long Bitter Night

Crown of Eternal Winter, Razorfin Shoulderguards, Battleplate of Ancient Kings (N), Swordhook Slingbelt, Legguards of the Emerald Brood (N), Magma Plated Handguards (N), Treads of Savage Beatings, Chromatically Tempered Sword
Kandrista gets to wear this outfit because, at level 111, she can use the Razorfin Shoulderguards, whereas Kaumaleia, at level 104, cannot.
I dithered for some time between this sword and Hailstorm.

I ultimately chose the Chromatically Tempered Sword because felt like its black detailing pulled the ensemble as a whole together more nicely.

Fathomstalker/Slithershell


Fathomstalker/Slithershell set with Plundered Oracle Fin Staff
The Fathomstalker set is the leather Benthic armor set from Nazjatar. The Slithershell set is the Nazjatar zone drop recolor of the Fathomstalker set. I prefer the soft grey and muted green colors of the Slithershell set.

Crashing Waves

Bloodcraver Pauldrons, Wavecrash Chestplate & Greaves, Vim’s Scalecrusher Girdle, Bleakweald Handguards & Stompers, Flanged Mace, Dockyard Targe
The Wavecrash set is the Nazjatar zone drop recolor of the Benthic Zanj’ir Scaleguard set. I particularly like the soft blue color of the chestpiece.

I made the first four outfits in this collection two or three weeks ago. I didn’t post them immediately, however, because I didn’t anticipate wanting to change those characters’ clothes again anytime particularly soon.

Pink Petals II


Commander’s set with Crown of Boundless Courage, Blood-Stained Pauldrons, Bloodscale Belt, Cloak of the Hollow, and The Hammer of Destiny
The pink flower crown prompted me to revisit this outfit concept (Underpowered Death Knight #31), which would be appropriate for either Noblegarden or Love is in the Air. I’m particularly fond of how this particular green cloak complements both the green Tauren DK fur color and the red tones in the armor.

Falling Petals II

Crown of Boundless Courage, Brigade Pauldrons & Boots, Wrathfin Armor & Legguards, Merciless Belt, Scarlet Gauntlets, Snowfall Shawl, Wild Gladiator’s Gavel
The pink flower crown prompted me to revisit this outfit concept, previously seen in Shaman outfits #4 and #37.

Russet Dragon

Orgrimmar Spaulders, Sunsoaked Vest, Cruel Gladiator’s Ironskin Belt Gloves & Slippers, Hemet’s Leather Legguards, Improvisational Historian’s Cloak, Fu Zan (PvP, default tint)
I thought that these Mists leveling items would coordinate nicely with these Legion PvP items; the Orgrimmar shoulders were a pleasant surprise.

Gilded Farstrider

Totem Matriarch’s Headdress, Green Iron Shoulders, Tribal Hauberk, Vintage Duskwatch Cinch, Ulfgor’s Greaves of Bravery, Green Iron Gauntlets, Captain’s Boots, Green Linen Shirt, Thas’dorah (default, Pillar of Creation tint)
A combination I wanted to try with this chestpiece. I’ll grant that the headdress is a little over the top (pun intended), but I just couldn’t resist how pretty the green feathers of the hat looked next to the green feathers of the arrows in Thas’dorah’s quiver.

I wanted to get Karaelia’s previous kit published last week because I knew I’d be dinging her to 120 and putting her in the Benthic set very soon.

Brine & Barnacles

Zanj’ir Scaleguard set with Zanj’ir Scaleguard Greatcloak, Reactive Waraxe and Deepwarden Redoubt
This is the Benthic plate armor set from Nazjatar. For some reason, wearing it is making Karaelia feel rather… pickled.

I haven’t changed my Human Mage’s outfit yet, but seeing the addition of darker skin tones to several races in the Shadowlands alpha datamining inspired me to see what the kit would look like on Kimmellyn.

In moments of procrastination/taking a break from the sisyphean workload of creating the extra materials needed for putting my courses online, I made several outfits during the past week — but putting a Sunday Mog Show post together is quite a lot of work, so for this installment I’m only showing the outfits of characters whose kits I expect to change again fairly soon. The others will be delayed to a future installment.

Brite Knight

Version 1: Conqueror’s Helmet, Pristine Lightforge Spaulders, Emerald Breastplate, Truesteel Waistguard (stage 3), Murkblood Avenger’s Legplates, Swamp Gas Gauntlets, Lavawalker Greaves, Jeweled Coronation Sword, Zom’s Crackling Bulwark

Version 2: Conqueror’s Helmet, Mantle of the Desert Crusade, Murkblood Avenger’s Chestplate, Truesteel Waistguard (stage 3), Brackwater Leggings, Swamp Gas Gauntlets, Conqueror’s Greaves, Jeweled Coronation Sword, Zom’s Crackling Bulwark

Version 3: Talonguard Helmet, Pristine Lightforge Spaulders, Embossed Plate Armor, Thorium Belt, Murkblood Avenger’s Legplates, Bloodforged Gauntlets, Enticing Sabatons, Eternally Folded Blade, Crest of Supremacy

Version 4: Talonguard Helmet, Imperial Plate Shoulders, Murkblood Avenger’s Chestplate, Thorium Belt, Embossed Plate Leggings, Bloodforged Gauntlets, Conqueror’s Greaves, Eternally Folded Blade, Crest of Supremacy
This was, of course, what had to come next. Rainbow Brite Plate has been a staple of Mogging since Transmogrification was introduced, but I hadn’t personally done it yet. As you can see, I tried a series of variations; Version 4 was what I actually wore out and about in the world for awhile.

Wrathful Moonpriest



Ceremonial Crown of Karabor, Wrathful Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Imbued Netherweave Tunic, Felcast Cord, Moonpriest’s Legwraps, Sunfrost Handwraps, Inferno Breath Sandals, Moonpriest’s Cloak, Steel Bladebreaker, Urn of Lost Memories
Kinevra’s first trip to the Darkshore Warfront rewarded her with the pants and cloak from the Moonpriest’s Vestments. I thought I’d see what I could come up with to show off these fancy pants.
Azshara’s palace in the Well of Eternity dungeon — and the surrounding Kaldorei city that can be seen from her balcony — seriously needs a renovation now that the art team have established what Highborne architecture really looked like. But of course, the devs will never actually go back and do that.

Every now and then, I look through the characters whom I’m not actively playing and ask myself “Am I tired of what she is wearing? Does she need some new clothes?”

White Knight

Overlord’s set with Steel Plate Helm, Pauldrons of the Argent Sentinel, Gleaming Celestial Waistguard, Gladiator’s Salvation, Highlord’s Favor
Karaelia had had enough of being dark; it was time to let her bright true nature shine again.

Mist Globes

Warmongering Gladiator’s Ironskin Helm, Fierce Gladiator’s Ironskin Spaulders, Sunset Leather Tunic, Brown Belt of Humbling Gravity, Leggings of the Chosen Dead (N), Loamflake Bracers*, Grandmaster’s Footwraps, Staff of Ox-Hoof Thunder
This kit is all about these fabulous shoulders from the PvP recolor of the Antorus Monk set. While I was putting it together, I’d originally chosen a fancier chestpiece. After I’d assembled the other items, I reviewed chestpiece options again and this one jumped out at me as being the right shade of brown to coordinate with the other items I’d chosen, and its plain, practical style was perfect for allowing the shoulders to really stand out.

Green and Gray

Thick Scale Shoulder Pads, Soldier’s Armor, Helbrine, Der’izu Legguards, Grips of the Fel Destroyer, Soldier’s Boots, Taut Driftwood Bow
I’ve collected a fair amount of green mail, which makes a good fallback for when my Hunter wants a new kit but I don’t have any burning inspiration.

Woodcraft

Morningscale Cowl, Tortoise Armor, Barrowknoll Cinch, Web Coated Leggings, Winning Mail Gloves + Steel-Clasped Bracers, Runesworn Boots, Ranger Cloak, Thas’dorah (default, Pillar of Creation tint)
This pushed-back hood style looks kind of silly on Tauren, so I wanted to try it on a character of another race. I picked this chestpiece to go with it, and then the rest of the outfit wanted to look like leather, rather than mail, too.
