Some good luck at the BMAH and a bit of thinking ahead when Trial of Style was up went into creating this installment’s outfits.

Faith & Fortune II




Crown of Everlasting Fortune/Crown of the Righteous, Lightning Infused Mantle, Selfless Wings of the Ascended, Robe of Faith, Belt of Faith, Selfless Watcher’s Warboots, Soul Releaser/Greatstaff of Righteousness
On my third try of actively watching and bidding on a BMAH auction for a Belt of Faith, I finally managed to outlast and outbid the competition.
See also (Tauren) Priest #89/Blood Elf Priest #12.

Hot Feet/Cold Feet



Fire: Jewel of the Firelord, Firelord’s Mantle (H), Master’s Vest, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Tabard of Summer Flames, Demonic Combatant’s Silk Handguards + Bracers of the Bronze Flight (H), Embereye Belt, Lava-Starched Britches, Searing Stompers, Wild Combatant’s Energy Staff (H)



Frost: Crown of Eternal Winter, Firelord’s Mantle (N), Master’s Vest, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Tabard of Summer Skies, Demonic Combatant’s Silk Handguards + Bracers of the Bronze Flight (N), Frostwind Cord, Lava-Starched Britches, Freezing Footguards, Wild Combatant’s Energy Staff (A)
I bought these shoes from Trial of Style pretty much just so I could use them for this outfit concept. Maybe I’ll think of some other uses later. The brightly colored soles showing while moving is neat.
Though none of the items in this pair of outfits are actually holiday-locked, Midsummer Fire Festival just seemed like the right time to make them.

Druid of the Cycle III


Big Voodoo Mask, Thunderlord Shoulderguards, Osteowings of the Necrolords, Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor, Antiseptic-Soaked Dressing, Bat Fur Mitts, Ferocious Gladiator’s Dragonhide Belt, Warmongering Gladiator’s Leggings, Duskbat Exterminator’s Treads, Hozen Warrior Spear
I was looking at the Necrolords bone wings in another context and it suddenly occurred to me that they would look great with this combo of shoulders and chestpiece, previously seen in (Tauren) Druid #68.
I think this look works for an Ardenweald/Night Fae character because of Ol’ Bwonsamdi, hmmmmm?

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.

Follow-ups to last week’s kits, sort-of.

Lana’thel’s Gift


Sanctified Bloodmage Shoulderpads 25H/25N-10H, Mantle of Crimson Blades/Mantle of Burnished Blades, Sanctified Bloodmage Robe 25H/25N-10H, Court Inquisitor’s Handwraps/Sinful Inquisitor’s Handwraps, Eternal Traveler’s Treads/Slippers of the Forgotten Heretic, Dying Light/Quel’delar, Lens of the Mind + Anima-Infused Muck
The “Dark Ranger” customization is also excellent for San’layn cosplay — though the actual Darkfallen Archmage NPCs in the Blood wing of ICC who wear the 25H version of the ICC Mage Tier set have blue DK/Domination-magic eyes, not blood red eyes. I chose Dying Light for this version of the set because I remembered that it dropped in ICC — and when I looked it up on Wowhead while assembling this item list, I found that it drops from Lana’thel, making the name I chose for the ensemble even more appropriate!
Because Void Elves have a hair color that is a near match, I show as a variation the 25N-10H version of the set, which uses the same color scheme as Blood Queen Lana’thel herself. I chose Quel’delar because of Lana’thel’s role in that story. Alas, I haven’t actually got the Mantle of Burnished Blades because I haven’t yet begun doing Venthyr Travel Network Broken Mirrors.

Night Glaive

Celestial Observer’s Constellations, Broodmother Armor, Grips of the Chosen Dead, Misthide Belt, Bladedancer’s Pantaloons, Boots of the Chosen Dead, Archon Glaive
I couldn’t leave Kerithian in the Nightmare for very long, so here she is with the original special questline-granted Night Elf-exclusive appearance, the Night Warrior (which is really only the eyes, Night Elf eye color 10, but I like to use skin color 13 and hair color 16 with it). This ensemble — hairstyle included — is loosely inspired by Tyrande’s Night Warrior visage.

Druids just wanna have fun.

Malorne’s Nightmare II


Gladiator’s Dragonhide Armor with Cloak of Blade Turning and Scythe of Elune (PVP, first tint)
Naturally, I had to play around with the “Dark Ranger” customization introduced in Patch 9.2.5 with a Night Elf — and since I did it with Kerithian, of course it made her into a Nightmare Druid.

If you are 1337 like I’m not, The First Satyr’s Spaulders would be an awesome addition to this look.
See also (Tauren) Druid #42.

Flames of Duty


Flame Healer’s Shoulderguards (N), Winterwoven Bulb, Deceitful Agent’s Vest, Gloves of the Hidden Temple, Windflame Girdle (N), Celestial Observer’s Leggings, Hive Tunneler’s Boots, Lakali’s Spire of Knowledge
I obtained the Normal-mode Siege of Orgrimmar shoulders and belt from the BMAH some time ago. I wanted to see what kind of combo I could make with Shadowlands items. This is what I ended up with, and I’m rather pleased with it.
This also happens to be the big #100 for “Things my Druid Wears”.

I keep looking at the chestpieces and pants from the leather Castle Nathria and Venthyr 9.0 sets and thinking dang, those look hawt. All the pieces I want from the Castle Nathria set drop from the first LFR wing, so that might not be too bad to start trying to farm… sometime later this summer or fall, perhaps. I could get the Renown coloration of the Venthyr 9.0 set easily enough after I’ve got more Anima coming in from Korthia and Zereth Mortis. I could get the Ember Court coloration of the Venthyr 9.0 set after my Mages have done Ember Court and unlocked the account-wide fast upgrades for that activity. Those are my favorite colorations of the Venthyr 9.0 set; I won’t bother with the other two. In the meantime, here are a couple of new outfits for Tauren wearing other armor types.

Mini-Mayla


Stonecrag Pauldrons + Hidden Shoulder, Tribal Unification Cloak, Hidden Chestpiece + Brawler’s Harness*, Grash’s Fireproof Handguards, Iron Beltguard of Fuufuu, Stonecrag Legplates, Stonecrag Sabatons, Brunnhildar Harpoon
Thinking about rolling a Highmountain Tauren Mage come 10.0 reminded me of my little Highmountain Tauren Warrior (previously seen in Warrior #65), and how I could now make for her the Mayla-lookalike outfit that I hadn’t been able to back in Legion.
Mayla’s actual chestpiece is the Ceremonial Leather Harness; I’ve used the original level 1 Horde Warrior shirt to mimic that look.

Tideshaper II


Blue Tricorne Hat, Crosswind Shoulderguards, Runewarden’s Greatcloak, Circuit-Linked Chainmail, Fletcher’s Nimble Grips, Girdle of the Scroll-Sages, Kilt of Rolling Thunders, Sharas’dal (upgraded, first tint), Coldscale Shield
Kamalia wanted a new kit, and she wanted to wear this outfit, which is a slight modification of a kit that I originally created for my Dwarf Shaman (#15) about two years ago.

I almost didn’t post these two purple outfits in this Sunday Mog Show since I showed them recently as part of Pretty Dress Collections. But they are newly created outfits, not old ones that you’d just forgotten that you’d seen before, so here they are again.

Incarnation of Light

Crown of the Fire Festival, Light-Mantle of the Incarnate, Aspiring Aspirant’s Drape, Robes of the Incarnate, Warmongering Gladiator’s Satin Gloves, Cincture of Will, Light’s Wrath (PvP, default tint)
I have fond memories of Karazhan, and I have always thought that this set is very pretty.

Violet Ice

Shoulderpads of Twisted Fate (H), Drape of the Violet Tower, Frostweave Tunic, Soulguard Girdle, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Eelskin Flippers, Ebonchill (upgraded, 3rd tint)
I wanted to make an outfit with this chestpiece so that I would have done something with all four colors that this style comes in. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do, though, until I thought of pairing it with this kilt. I liked how the black in this cloak coordinated with the black in the chestpiece.

My Alliance Mage had finished up the Necrolords Campaign and purchased the last item on my (rather short) Necrolords Renown Vendor shopping list, so it was time to get my Horde Mage going on the Kyrian Campaign. I dressed her up in a suitable kit — and then Children’s Week came along. I’ve ignored that Holiday for several years — I didn’t even go do the new Zandalari and Kul Tiran orphan quests in Battle for Azeroth — but this year, with previews from the PTR indicating that Salandria’s story will be continued in Patch 9.2.5, I felt like I ought to revisit it.

Pure Moods

Cassandra’s Grace, Vicious Embersilk Shoulders, Drape of Twisted Loyalties, Aspiring Aspirant’s Robes, Gloves of Unfailing Faith, Belt of Divine Inspiration, Master’s Boots, Giorgio’s Caduceus of Pure Moods (LFR)
Between the golden feathers, the ball that is almost the same color as Bastion Anima, and the RP quality of the name, this staff was just what this outfit needed.

Sin’dorei Schism





Cowl of the Grand Engineer, Mantle of the Elven Kings, Royal Cloak of the Sunstriders, Vestments of the Sea-Witch, Gauntlets of the Sun King, Veteran’s Silk Belt, Infernoweave Boots, Crystalheart Pulse-Staff
With previews from the PTR indicating that Salandria will be a featured character in a Patch 9.2.5 storyline, I felt like Kaelinda ought to go revisit Salandria’s Children’s Week story. So with a retro look to match the retro timeframe of the event, off she went. Apparently, I hadn’t actually ever done Children’s Week with Kaelinda before, because she got the “Aw, Isn’t It Cute?” Achievement when she turned in the quest to return Salandria to the orphanage. So I’m very glad that I did it now!
This set is a recolor of the Serpentshrine Cavern/Tempest Keep Mage Tier set; I think its colors look more Blood-Elfy than the actual Tier set, and the item names are certainly very Blood-Elfy — hence the name I gave the outfit.

Fangs in the Shadow Keep

Sinfall Venthyr Hood, Sinful Inquisitor’s Mantle, Shroud of the Penitent, Robes of Arugal, Soulbreaker’s Ebony Handwraps, Sinful Inquisitor’s Sash, Master’s Boots, Void-Warped Oshu’gun Staff
I wanted to try this belt with this robe, so here we are.

Combat Meditation


Aspiring Aspirant’s Hood, Eternal Traveler’s Spaulders, Purifier’s Silken Cape, Cruel Executioner’s Chestplate, Intimidating Initiate’s Crushers, Eternal Traveler’s Waistwrap, Cruel Executioner’s Legguards, Kul’Tiras Dress Sabatons, Blade of the Silver Hand, Kudebeh’s Remarkable Targe
Although the bronze was fun for a bit of a change, in general Karaelia likes gold better.
Maldraxxus has the environment I prefer the least, but its leveling and World quest reward sets have the colorations I prefer most! I almost wonder if the black and charcoal colorations of the Bastion sets were really intended for Maldraxxus, and the golden and navy blue colorations of the Maldraxxus sets were really intended for Bastion.

Going back to more normal clothes after the Holiday, plus a new outfit for a dormant alt.

An’she’s Warmth



Unwavering Stare, Living Wood Spaulders (N), Phaelia’s Vestments of the Sprouting Seed, Grips of the Unbroken, Ogre Mage Staff
The Sun Priests at the Horde entrance to the Legion Priest Order Hall (also found within) are wearing the cloth Whisperwind Spaulders with the leather Valorous Nightsong (Ulduar 10) robe and gloves. This works well from a lore perspective because the Tauren priesthood is a relatively recent offshoot of Tauren druidism, but it doesn’t work so well for Transmogrification. See also Priest #52.
Kerisa farmed up the Ulduar 25 Druid Tier set, but it seems that she never got around to collecting the 10s version. These items from the BoE recolor set will do, though.
Seeing Hunaka Greenhoof striding around New Dalaran wearing the Living Wood Spaulders — the only piece out of that particular Warlords Druid Tier set that I genuinely like — was what really made me want to get them.

Icy Intent




Crown of Everlasting Fortune/Crown of Eternal Winter, Firewool Shoulderpads, Drape of Icy Intent, Fur Covered Robe, Cerulean Filigreed Shirt, Celestial Bindings, Willow Boots, Rod of the Broken Temple
This outfit was again built around the cloak. I am rather fond of the brown and blue color combination. The brown strap and blue feathers of these Pandaria shoulders made them a fantastic find for the kit, and I like how the beige interior of the shoulders lightens up the overall ensemble.

Primus’s Master Conjurer





Onyx Glare-Reducers, Mantle of the Skyterror (LFR), Osteowings of the Necrolords, Black Mageweave Vest/Divine Fury Raiment (LFR), Master Builder’s Shirt, Prime Conjurer’s Gloves, Prime Conjurer’s Cinch, Legwraps of the Master Conjurer, Prime Conjurer’s Slippers, Staff of Deserved Tranquility/Staff of Earned Tranquility
These are all the pieces I wanted out of the Prime Conjurer’s set (Necrolords 9.0 Renown), so then I had to figure out what to do with them. Any future uses of these items will most likely be for Hallow’s End-themed outfits.
I never thought I’d use the shoulders and robe from the Battle of Dazar’alor set (which I picked up while trying for the crown from Opulence), but whaddayaknow, they work really well with the Necrolords pieces.

Unicorn Hunter

Snake Spaulders, Stormstrike Vest, Cerulean Filigreed Shirt, Dragonstalker’s Gauntlets, Band of the Night Raven, Expedition Forager Leggings, Treads of the Wasteland, Thalassian Compound Bow
According to the dates on the image files for Ketura’s previous outfit, she’d been wearing for a little over two years. I finally got tired enough of seeing it to put forth the effort to make her something new. This outfit is adapted from one I originally made for my Dwarf Shaman (#8).
I gave the outfit this name because its colors are similar to the color scheme associated with the resurgence of unicorns as a motif in popular culture in recent years.

Outfits I’ve made this week, some with Spring Circlets and some without.

Noblegarden Wolpertinger


Blue Spring Circlet/Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Living Wood Spaulders (H), Sprite Darter’s Shawl, Celestial Observer’s Leggings, Frostbitten Hammer
Bunny Ears + Antlers + Feathery Wingish Things = Wolpertinger Cosplay, amirite?

Gilded Corruption

Horns of the Left Hand Path, Pauldrons of Vile Corruption, Heroes’ Plagueheart Robe, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Imbued Silkweave Cinch, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Slippers, Grave Watcher’s Longstaff
The colors on this robe are really quite a nice combination, and the belt coordinates with the robe so delightfully that I almost — almost — wish I could use it with characters other than just my Warlock.

Celumbra, the Night’s Dichotomy




Celumbra, Runespeaker’s Robes/Snowblind Vestments, Goliath Wraps of Hridmogir/Hagfeather Handwraps, Snowblind Cord/Electrified Stormwing Cord, Leywalker Pants, Snowblind Footwraps/Runespeaker’s Sandals, Warpcaster’s Staff

Celumbra, Robes of the Nightborne Ambassador, Mana-Cord of Deception, Withered Slippers, Warpcaster’s Staff
This Legion Legendary shoulderpiece matches the Stormheim quest set item on one side and the Highmountain quest set item on the other — so naturally I had to make mix-and-matches of those sets to go with it.
Then I discovered how nice it looks with this coloration of the Broken Isles World Quest set robe…

Winterborn




Winterborn Regalia with Winterborn Staff/Winterborn Spear/Winterborn Shillelagh + Winterborn Harp
After many months of slowly and patiently collecting Anima tokens, Kaurinka at last accumulated 30K Anima and was able to purchase the Winterborn Arsenal.

Blue Rabbit

Blue Spring Circlet, Pauldrons of Arcane Rage, White Linen Robe/Recruit’s Robe*, Sprite Darter’s Sash, Slippers of the Twilight Prophet, Auchenai Staff
The robe + sash combo was the spark of this outfit.
The Recruit’s Robe is the original level 1 Draenei Mage chestpiece.

White Rabbit

Spring Circlet, Destroyer’s Mantle, White Linen Robe/Acolyte’s Robe*, Suspicious Slippers, Telmor Soupriest Staff
Hippity Hop.
The Acolyte’s Robe is the original level 1 Draenei Priest chestpiece.

I’m glad that I shelled out for the Celestial Observer’s set. As you might have noticed, I’ve become very fond of the cloak.

Azure Foliage

Phantasmal Headdress, Hide of Chromaggus, Celestial Observer’s Starshroud, Azure Dusk Vestments, Trickster’s Handwraps, Azure Dusk Sash, Azure Dusk Leggings, Polar Boots, The Lifebinder
I saw another Tauren Druid wearing the full Stormrider set, and in an instant, I knew that I needed to put those shoulders with the Celestial Observer’s cloak and the Azure Dusk armor.

Spring Violets

Court Inquisitor’s Hood, Replica Sorcerer’s Mantle, Cloak of the Makers, Disciple’s Robe, Green Holiday Shirt, Silent Slippers of Meditation, Terokk’s Shadowstaff
I think this cloak design is wonderful, but somehow I had to set out to design an outfit around the cloak itself as the signature item, rather than choosing it as the cloak for an outfit designed around some other key item, to actually use it at last.

Oribos Bronze


Stoneforged set with Doomed Crown of Lei Shen (LFR), Improvisational Historian’s Cloak, Kaal’s Gloomblade, and Ceremonious Shield
Plate Shadowlands leveling gear. This version comes from Revendreth. Although the hues of the Throne of Thunder hat don’t quite match, I still couldn’t resist the combo.
Other colorations:

Waylight (Bastion), Cruel Executioner’s (Maldraxxus), Grove Warden’s (Ardenweald), Ceremonious (Crafted)

Kamalia has come to the fore again in the past week or so.

Dreamthorn

Dreamthorn Armor with Dazzling Spectacles, Runewarden’s Greatcloak, Duskwarder Gavel, and Duskwarder Shield
One evening, I spontaneously decided to level Kamalia instead of playing with my Mages. I guess I was missing her. Soon, she’d gained four levels and a mishmash of gear from WQs in all four zones. She’d chosen Threads of Fate and the Night Fae at level 50, so I unified her look by Mogging everything to the Ardenweald leveling quest set. I was so glad when I discovered that choosing Threads of Fate automatically grants the appearances of all the skipped leveling storyline quest rewards!
Other colorations of this set:

Waylight (Bastion), Flesh Architect’s (Maldraxxus), Soul Hunter’s (Revendreth), Desolate Scale (Crafted)

Mooncloth Pennant


Mountainsage Hood/Crown of the Champion, Primal Mooncloth Shoulders, Pennant Cloak, Primal Mooncloth Robe, Rhie-Ay’s Clutching Gauntlets, Primal Mooncloth Belt/Corpse-Stitcher’s Cord, Sandswept Sandals, Apostle of Argus
Since I’d used the other coloration of this cloak, now it was time to use this one. Searching for coordinating robes, I was wowed by this one!

Devouring Plague

Onyx Glare-Reducers, Devouring Pellicle Shoulderpads, Heroes’ Plagueheart Robe, Imbued Silkweave Cinch, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Slippers, Ulthalesh (PvP, 1st tint)
As these are Warlock Tier lookalike shoulders, naturally my Warlock insisted that she get to wear them, too.
Sure, yeah, “Devouring Plague” is actually a Shadow Priest spell — but it was the right name for this Warlock outfit.

Riven Sepulcher

Cowl of the Ternion Glory (LFR), Devouring Pellicle Shoulderpads, Robes of Riven Dreams (LFR), Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Sincollector’s Sandals, Lightning Rod
I happened across this combination of shoulders and robe while browsing robes to go with the shoulders for my Warlock — but it didn’t seem quite right to use it for her, so I made the outfit idea for an actual Priest instead.

Another milestone for the Sunday Mog Show!

The Trial of Style was on last week, with new prizes again! This time, the new rewards are shoes (Conjuror’s Slippers (blue); Patroller’s Footwear (brown)) that have as their selling point of spiffiness that they fully cover the feet of races which don’t usually have their feet covered by shoes*.
I am not particularly impressed by how these new shoes look on Tauren, Draenei, and Worgen —


— but I am quite pleased with how they look on Pandaren, Trolls, and Vulpera.
I did get the fancier versions of the shoes, as well, but I have uses in mind for those that will require holidays later in the year to be active.

White and Purple Clouds

Cat Lover’s Vest, White Cloud Belt, White Cloud Leggings, Patroller’s Footwear
A very simple kit using the high-level Pandaria Tailoring versions of a belt and pants that are among the earliest quest rewards obtained by Pandaren cloth-wearers during their adventures on the Wandering Isle, plus foot-covering shoes from the Trial of Style.

Conjuror’s Sky

Sorcerer Drape, Sorcerer Bracelets, Belt of the Night Sky, Leggings of the Night Sky, Conjuror’s Slippers
A very simple kit using the high-level Pandaria Tailoring versions of a belt and pants that are quest rewards obtained by Pandaren cloth-wearers during the middle of their adventures on the Wandering Isle, plus foot-covering shoes from the Trial of Style.

Zen Trial Style


Beige: Contender’s Satin Amice, Sunset Cloak, Growing Robe, Amaranthine Cord, Initiate’s Necromantle Slippers, Staff of the Hidden Master


Pink: Deadly Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Dusklight Drape, Silkwood Robe, Silkwood Cord, Initiate’s Necromantle Slippers, Rain Poppy Staff


Blue: Nayeli Regalia with Waterfall Drape and Plundered Waterbearer’s Staff
Trial of Style was up, and there were new prizes! Kaelyla was the one who already had some Trial of Style tokens in her bags, so off she went. The first two times I did it, the theme was “Zen”. I did the beige outfit for the first one and it took second place; I did the pink outfit for the second one and it didn’t place. The third time, the theme was “Dark and Deadly”, but I did the blue outfit anyway just because I wanted to use the third coloration of this robe, and of course it didn’t place. But that didn’t matter; I got plenty of tokens to purchase all six pairs of new shoes.

Book of Prophecies



Vestments of Prophecy with Gossamer Headpiece and Light’s Wrath (Hidden, 1st tint)
Some combinations of Tier set and Legion Artifact weapon were just meant to be.
I have always been covetous of the NPC-exclusive recolor of the Prophecy Mantle worn by Kosta Dawnchaser at Thunder Cleft in Krasarang Wilds — but I didn’t know the robe details well enough to recognize the differences in the robe style until I stood them side-by-side to take the pictures.

Embroidered Runes of Knowledge

Nightvale Cowl, Nightsky Mantle, Obsidian-Flecked Cape, Runecloth Robe, Embroidered Shirt, Black Belt of Knowledge, Sorcerer Slippers, Lakali’s Spire of Knowledge
Poking around trying out a half-formed idea that was going in a different direction, I happened upon this robe and then the outfit went this way instead.

Fading Reality

Mag’hari Ritualist’s Horns, Devouring Pellicle Shoulderpads (N), Shawl of the Old Maid, Coldtouch Phantom Wraps, Choral Slippers, Handmaiden’s Longstaff
I went to the AH to buy Zereth Mortis zone-drop BOEs for my Druid and Shaman. After I’d done that, I decided to browse around in Cloth to see what sort of Tier-lookalike BOEs might be coming out of Sepulcher of the First Ones. Sure enough, there was a BOE lookalike of the Normal-mode Warlock shoulders — and even better, it was for a price I could actually afford! And what have I been accumulating all this gold for but to spend it when interesting things show up on the AH? So I bought them. And then, of course, I needed to make an outfit with them.
I knew pretty much right away that this robe was what I wanted to use, and I was delighted to finally have a good opportunity to use this cloak. But I had such a hard time choosing a hat for this outfit! Although I ultimately chose the Warlock-T1-lookalike horns to go along with the shoulders being a Warlock-lookalike item, this ensemble also looks smashing with:

Duskwoven Turban, Katoom’s Mask, Collar of Cho’gall (a more Mage-like option), Azerothian Champion’s Crown, or Deeptide Cover.

Staccato

Staccato set with Crown of the Forest Lord, Marshwater Mantle, and Umbranse’s Staff; variation with Traveler’s Gloves & Boots
Kaurinka had been getting somewhat bored of what she’d been wearing, but I didn’t have any exciting new ideas for her. Then Kaelinda bought her the Zereth Mortis zone-drop BOEs, so she figured she might as well see if she liked those well enough to wear them as-is. And she did, more-or-less; the Classic items in the variation coordinate beautifully!

~*~*~
*Though they aren’t, in fact, the first shoe models to do that. For a Pandaren Mage, at least, their feet are also fully covered by the Sandals of the Severed Soul, Scent-Soaked Sandals, Whisperstep Runners, Vile Manipulator’s Footwraps, and Sprite Darter’s Galoshes
