I’ve gotten the Highmountain gals added to my Characters page now. As mentioned previously, however, I won’t be giving them their own “Things my Characters Wear” pages.

Mulgore-Highmountain Liason

Willow Spaulders, Farseer’s Harness & Gauntlets, Lifecycle Waistguard (H), Infection Resistant Legguards, Tabard of the Highmountain Tribe, Battlehammer of the Sunwalker, Fel-Iron Shield, Highmountain War Harness
Kamalia chose this outfit, a variation on her earlier Highmountain Spirit-Guardian kit (#70), to wear to Baine’s grand feast for Mayla and the other Highmountain Tauren leaders.

Rivermane Rockbreaker


Whitewater set with Marksman’s Girdle, Highmountain Tabard, Rivermane War Harness, and Doomhammer
This is simply the Highmountain coloration of the Legion leveling mail set, with a plainer belt swapped in to allow the whole tabard to be seen.

Skyhorn Shapeshifter


Feathermoon Headdress, Preened Ironfeather Shoulders & Breastplate, Headhunter’s Belt, Stormrage Legguards, Hewn Kodo Gloves + Bristlebark Bindings, Ogre Mage Staff
I suspect that Kashina will end up wearing a lot of green to coordinate with her green warpaint.

Bloodtotem Basher


Warbringer’s set with Drake Talon Pauldrons, Belt of the Sand Reaver, Replica Blood Guard’s Cleaver, and Sternhorn’s Shield
I acquired the Warbringer’s set piecemeal, getting bits of it at different times for different outfits, so I was somewhat surprised — but glad — to find out that I had almost the complete set for Kounaqiwa to wear.

Vengeance for the Aldrachi

Soulstarve Hood, Wild Gladiator’s Chestguard, Arinor Keeper’s Belt, Leggings of the Immortal Night, Fingers of the Loneliest Monk, Warhide Footpads, Valarjar Tabard, Aldrachi Warblades
I have always played Kiralaira as Havoc, but I felt like doing at least one kit with the Vengeance Artifact weapon. I included the Valarjar tabard because the designs on the blade reminded me of Vrykul patterns.

Vivacious Val’sharah Violet

Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Heroes’ Dreamwalker Mantle, Tranquil Bough chestpiece leggings & boots, Girdle of Lenience, Grips of the Chosen Dead (LFR), Dreamweaver Initate’s Tabard, Springrain Staff
A little something purple with this alternate coloration of the Dreamweavers tabard, for Alunaria.

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.

If any of you, my dear readers, have kits that you’d like to share, I’d be happy to add you to the show! Just email me your picture(s), along with a list of the items in the outfit. I don’t regularly check my blog email, though, so if you’ve sent me an outfit, please make a comment on the most recent Sunday Mog Show post so that I know to check my blog email for your contribution.

Last year, I felt cranky about having to re-craft the Winter Clothes and Winter Boots to be able to Mog with them, so I poured all my effort into making Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater kits instead. This year, I figured I might as well fill in that gap in my Wardrobe — I knew I already had the patterns, and I had all the necessary materials squirrelled away in my Guild Bank, too.

Because the Winter Clothes automatically hide whatever pants are being worn and helms, cloaks, shoulders, and belts can now be Hidden, it’s almost possible to make a just-Winter-Clothes Mog. Something must still be done about the gloves though, whether that is Mogging them into something vaguely coordinating or simply not wearing them.

Father Winter’s Helper

Red Winter Hat & Red Winter Clothes with Rotting Handwraps + Jessera’s Fungus Lined Cuffs, Warm Red Woolen Socks, Green Linen Shirt, and Thaumaturgist Staff/Green Winter Hat & Green Winter Clothes with Shimmering bracers gloves & boots, Red Linen Shirt, and Whelp Keeper’s Staff
Who else but a Gnome to show off the best cloth accessories to wear with the Winter Clothes?
I am rather fond of the effect created by using the contrasting colored shirt.

Echo of Winter Veils Past


Green or Red Winter Clothes, Winter Boots, Pirate Sinker’s Gloves + Boneshredder Wristguards, Muramasa, Wine Glass
A Demon Hunter can, if they choose, look almost completely normal — no horns, no tattoos — allowing us to glimpse the person Kiralaira was in years gone by — before the orcs, before Arthas, before Illidan — when she was still an ordinary quel’dorei, living in Silvermoon and occasionally visiting Dalaran on business. The eyes, though… even with the Barbershop, there is no going back from that part of the Demon Hunter transformation. This veil, however, would have been fashionable for a Winter Veil masquerade party.

Elements of Holiday Cheer

Green Winter Clothes with Bog Epaulets, Unyielding Fists, Brackwater Boots, Zangarra Scepter, and Emerald Shield/Red Winter Clothes with Engraved Pauldrons, Gauntlets of Divinity*, Boots of the Skybreaker, Firecrystal Mace, and Crest of Supremacy
The red version of this outfit turned out much better than the green, I think. The gloves I used are from the original version of Scarlet Monastery; if I didn’t happen to have them, I would have used the Bloodlust Gauntlets.
Unless I have some fabulous idea for a new kit, Kjerstin will go right back to wearing her Ironforge livery when the holiday is over.

Airsick Lowlander “Winter” Clothes

Red Winter Hat & Red Winter Clothes with Emerald Gauntlets & Sabatons/Green Winter Hat & Green Winter Clothes with Bloodforged Gauntlets & Sabatons, Darkmoon “Sword”
Once, Kaumaleia would have thought that these southern continental folk have very nonsensical and totally impractical ideas about what to wear in snowy weather. Ever since her time at Acherus, however, she doesn’t seem to notice cold at all — and these silly clothes do look cute.

Conqueror’s Carapace



Conqueror’s Battlegear with Booty Bay Helm, Burden of Mortality (H), and Mighty Gorian Greatsword
If I ever happened to create a purple elf Warrior — whether a ren’dorei or a dark-eyed kaldorei — perhaps she might wear something very similar to this.

Destroyer’s Fury


Destroyer Armor with Mantle of Fury and Worldcarver
These shoulders are my favorite bladed plate shoulder armor design. The Pauldrons of Resounding Rings from Heart of Fear are my second-favorites. All the rest, to my eyes, look rather silly.

It was time for a few more of the Twelve Classes to get their Hearts of Azeroth.

I’ve showed these sets in previous installments of the Sunday Mog Show:

Here are the new sets I’ve assembled over the past few weeks:

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.

Fighting Fel With Fel: Brains & Spells



Horns of the Left Hand Path, Robes of the Black Harvest, Felcast Cord, Scorpid Handler’s Gloves (LFR) + Shining Cicada Bracers, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Fandral’s Flamescythe (H)
The Warlock Order Hall robe creates Demon Hunter tattoo-like patterns on the Warlock’s arms, which inspired me to create a set of paired outfits — one for a Warlock and another for a Demon Hunter with purple tattoos.
The patterns are best displayed by hiding shoulder armor and using the smallest possible gloves and bracers.

Fighting Fel With Fel: Brawn & Blades


Cursed Vision of Sargeras, Chestguard of Insidious Desire, Girdle of Nefarious Strategy (LFR), Illidari Leggings, Frostwolf Scout’s Gloves, Sapfly Shoes, Twinblades of the Deceiver (PvP, default tint)
The Warlock Order Hall robe creates Demon Hunter tattoo-like patterns on the Warlock’s arms, which inspired me to create a set of paired outfits — one for a Warlock and another for a Demon Hunter with purple tattoos.
Of the various Demon Hunter chestpiece designs, I think this one gives the best view of the chest and upper arm tattoos, though it does obscure the bottom edges of the patterns at the elbows and lower torso.

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.”

Empyrial Bastion

Empyrial Titan Crown, Demonic Combatant’s Scaled Shoulders, Chestguard of Exile, Uktar’s Belt of Chiming Rings, Magistrate’s Greaves, Gauntlets of Radiant Glory (N), Pillarfoot Greaves (N), Sunsoul Scepter, Aldori Legacy Defender
The chestpiece of this outfit is an early Outland quest reward that is very similar to the Paladin T4 Justicar chestpiece — only with the dangly chain to make it fancier.

Empyrial Key to the Cosmos


Empyrial Cosmic Crown, Dominant Combatant’s Silk Amice, Vicious Embersilk Robe, Nightvale Waistwrap, Pyrotex Ignition Cloth, Sage’s Boots, Key to the Planes
I *almost* wish I had a golden-haired Lightforged Draenei to wear this outfit.

Tirisgarde Magus of the Three Schools

Warmongering Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Mantle of Tirisgarde, Vengeful Gladiator’s Silk Raiment, Girdle of Tirisgarde, Scarab-Caller Grips, Sorcerer Slippers, Archmage’s Staff*
I’m not particularly fond of the Tirisgarde Robe, so when it occurred to me that the Vengeful Gladiator’s Silk Raiment has very similar colors, I had to try the combination.
I wasn’t able to complete this outfit until after Patch 8.1 dropped, however, because the shoulders required Nightfallen-Exalted rep to wear as well as to purchase. Although Kinevra has made contact with Thalyssra at Shal’Aran, she hasn’t done much else for the Nightfallen.
She hasn’t quested in Val’sharah, either, which is why Khadgar is pestering her using his crystal ball.

The Pilgrim’s Dress first appeared in the game on the Blood Elf Pilgrim NPCs at Thrallmar. I was pleased when it was made available to players when the Pilgrim’s Bounty holiday was introduced in 2009. The Pilgrim’s Attire was also introduced at that time.

Although I like having the Pilgrim’s Dress and the Pilgrim’s Attire around for RP-wear, I don’t find them particularly inspiring as a centerpiece for a Mog — so the outfit shown below is rather on the boring side.

Outland Pilgrimage

Pilgrim’s Dress with Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Pilgrim’s Boots, and Staff of Hale Magefire
Some time after her mother passed through Thrallmar and helped clear and mark the path through the canyon to Falcon Watch, Kishalla arrived in Outland with her unsuitable beau of the moment.
That relationship fell apart when the couple reached the “promised land” of Netherstorm. Kishalla was awestruck by what Kael’thas’s Sunhawks had accomplished and wanted to join them, whereas the young man was appalled by the thought that Eversong Woods might suffer the same fate as Farahlon.
The Dimensius Incident at Manaforge Ultris was Kishalla’s first major encounter with the power of the Void…

Eternal Vigil


Gossamer Headpiece, Vicious Embersilk Shoulders Robe & Belt, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Eye-Blinder Greatcloak, Light’s Wrath (PvP, default tint)
Calia Menethil is wearing this crafted set from Cataclysm. Like many other WoW clothing designs, it comes in three color variants. This one has always been my favorite.

World Tree Guardian


Antlers of Malorne, Spaulders of the Unseen, Umbrafen Tunic & Britches, Forest-Lord’s Waistwrap (LFR), Forest Leather Gloves, Padded Running Shoes, Tabard of the Guardians of Hyjal, Wildfury Greatstaff/G’hanir (upgraded, first tint)
This had to be a pants outfit because this belt is so fun — but oh, it clips so badly with a skirt on a Tauren!
When the class trainers were added to Shattrath, the alcove for the Cenarion Expedition was given a banner with a symbol more like that of the Guardians of Hyjal tabard than like that of the actual Cenarion Expedition tabard.

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!

Charskin


Cursed Vision of Sargeras, Cruel Gladiator’s Felskin Spaulders, Chestguard of Insidious Desire, Taut Halyard Waistband, Charskin Legguards, Raven’s Veil Gloves, Vindictive Gladiator’s Felskin Boots, Twinblades of the Deceiver (upgraded, first tint)
There are four Legion chestpiece styles that have different appearances for Demon Hunters than for the other leather-wearing classes. This one comes from the Legion dungeons. I didn’t get around to collecting all of that set, but these PvP pieces fill in nicely because a lot of the Legion Demon Hunter class sets use that blood-red color.
The Monk “Shado-Pan Legacy” set exhibited in the previous installment of Sunday on the Promenade shows how this chestpiece looks on the other leather-wearing classes.

I think I might finally be to the end of my Silver Hand series in this installment.

Silver HandFist of Argus

Vicious Gladiator’s Scaled Armor with Tabard of the Lightbringer, Cerulean Filigreed Shirt, and Draenic Ribsmasher
I’m not quite sure why I have this fixation with wanting to look like all (or at least many) of the NPCs at the Sanctum of Light, when I don’t have a corresponding desire to try to look like the NPCs in the other Order Halls. Maybe it’s just because Paladins are Teh Shiney?
The Defenders of Argus are wearing the Justicar (Karazhan) set and the Argus Purifiers are wearing the Radiant Glory (Dragon Soul) set.

Silver Hand Frostbringer

Truesteel Pauldrons (stage 3), Empyrial Breastplate, Girdle of Valorous Deeds, Legplates of the Argent Armistice, Grips of the Fallen Council (LFR), Life Force Chargers (H), Royal Cape, Tabard of the Lightbringer, Icy Ebon Warsword
Waaaaitaminnit… Nice try, Ebon Blade, but you’re still not welcome at the Sanctum of Light.
In a departure from my usual aesthetic preference for having matching gloves and boots, every item in this kit comes from a different set. That’s not why I’ve saved this outfit to use for the “Mismatched” theme the next time Trial of Style comes around, though. But is the class-based incongruity too subtle for the average Trial of Style group?

Shado-Pan Legacy

Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Supple Shoulderguards (stage 2), Chestguard of Insidious Desire, Vindictive Gladiator’s Ironskin Belt, Charskin Legguards, Ironpelt Mitts & Boots, Fists of the Heavens (PvP, default tint)
The Shado-Pan-themed name of the PvP appearance for the Windwalker Monk Artifact demanded a Shado-Pan-themed kit to go with it.
How many Shado-Pan Monk kits have I made now? Seven… Perhaps it is time to split out all of the specifically Monk outfits from “Things My Characters are Wearing with the Shado-Pan Helmet” into their own separate “Things my Monks are Wearing with the Shado-Pan Helmet” post…

Empyrial Legacy II






Empyrial Elemental Crown, Demonic Combatant’s Chain Spaulders, Bramblemail Hauberk, Skettis Belt, Manaburst Legguards, Mojo-Mender’s Gloves, Lifestep Treads, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Thas’dorah (upgraded, first tint)
A modification of a kit that I originally designed for Kamalia. Although the grey-and-purple gloves and boots that I used with this outfit for Kam — which worked for her because of her gray fur — looked very nice with the grey feathers of Thas’dorah, they didn’t work at all with the rest of the outfit for Karolissa.

Mountain Trails

Bearzerker’s Spaulders, Trailseeker Vest Gauntlets & Greaves, Marksman’s Girdle, Veteran’s Legguards, Cloak of Enthralling Darkness, Eagletalon Spear
Another take on an Unseen Path outfit.

Hyjal Warden

Pauldrons of the Wardancer, Krakken-Heart Breastplate, Fel Iron Plate Belt, Greaves of the Bloodwarder, Royal Gauntlets of Silvermoon, Emerald Sabatons, Tabard of the Guardians of Hyjal, Slavemaster Axe
Here’s a kit that’s what, three expansions overdue?

Feathered Serpent

Totem Matriarch’s Headdress, Fel-Chain Spaulders, Willow Band Hauberk*, Vintage Duskwatch Cinch (N), Ulfgor’s Greaves of Bravery, Gauntlets of the Windreacher, Green Iron Boots, Axe of Rin’ji
This hat is super nifty because it’s a mail lookalike of an awesome cloth hat design. When Kamalia Prime picked it up from the corpse of a vignette creature in Nazmir, it didn’t fit with her current outfit very well — so mini-Kam gets to wear it instead.

In mid-October, BTH decided that he was bored of all the games he had been playing, and the games he’s been looking forward to aren’t out yet, and so he might as well give Battle for Azeroth a spin. He’s already leveled his Bear Tank main to 120 solo, but we’ve found a couple of evenings to go questing with Kamalia and his Hunter. So Kam got to be the first to go to Zandalar, after all, and is now level 111.

Dazar’alor Daze

Death-Pledged Armor with Battleforge Shoulderguards, Fel-Chain Cinch, Zardax’s Tattered Drape, Mambo Hex Axe, and Loa-Binder Disc
I wasn’t initially a fan of the Zandalar mail leveing gear when I saw it in preview images, but now that I’ve seen it up close, I rather like it — as long as I swap out the helm, shoulders, and belt, that is. This coloration of the set comes from Nazmir.

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.

Silver Hand Blood Knight

Inferno Tempered Armor with Helm of Infinite Visions, Darksoul Shoulders, Goblin Girdle, Cloak of Blade Turning, Tabard of the Lightbringer, Blade of Exotic Magic, and Blood Knight Defender
Wouldn’t it be nifty if Blood Elf Paladin players could also get the black-and-red recolor of T1 worn by some of these Blood Knight NPCs? I wouldn’t want it instead of the classic white-and-yellow T1 look, though — I’d want it as a race-specific additional look.

Silver Hand Protector

Relentless Gladiator’s Scaled Armor with Tabard of the Lightbringer, Ardent Gavel, and Ardent Defender
Dwarves and Humans have the closest connection among the Paladin races; at the Sanctum of Light, Dwarf and Human Silver Hand NPCs are wearing the same gear, whereas all the other races have their own unique gear.

Ironforge Magma-Shaper

Volcanic Pauldrons, Wayfaring Tunic (stage 1), Lightning Well Belt, Sanctified Frost Witch’s Legguards (25H), Erupting Volcanic Handwraps (N), Decimation Treads (N), Ironforge Tabard, Ironfoe, Royal Treasury Courier’s Shield
Usually I name outfits after I create them, while I’m writing them up to post. In this case, however, I had the idea for what I wanted to call Kjerstin’s Ironforge Tabard kit before I started designing it. These shoulders worked perfectly for that thematic motif, and then I built the rest of the outfit around that item.

Empyrial Windblade

Empyrial Deep Crown, Arinor Keeper’s Spaulders, Wild Draenish Vest, Arinor Keeper’s Belt, Salamander Scale Pants, Mountainscaler Leather Gloves, Overgrowth Cutter Boots, Mana Wrath
I chose to use swords — and specifically this sword — for this kit so that it would be an outfit that could realistically be worn by a Draenei Windwalker Monk.

This semester is still keeping me exhaustingly busy, though that’s not why I was so quiet for the first half of October. At General Conference at the beginning of October, President Nelson challenged the women of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to take a 10-day fast from social media.
I’m kind of a social media hermit. Although I have a Facebook account, I haven’t logged into it for so long that I’ll probably have to jump through all sorts of ridiculous identity verification hoops the next time I do try to log in. I made a deliberate decision when Twitter debuted to not do it — I didn’t need another digital distraction in my life — and I have avoided other forms of social media — Snapchat, Pinterest, Instagram, etc — for the same reason. So this blog is pretty much the only social media thing I do — and I debated with myself for a bit if it even counted as the sort of social media President Nelson was talking about. But we indoctrinate our kids to “follow the prophet” — and have a rather earwormy children’s song with that phrase as the title and chorus — so I figured I’d better walk the walk instead of just talking the talk. So I took some time off from the blog. I also abstained from reading Blizzard Watch and Wowhead during those two weeks.
Unsurprisingly, I found that I was more focused and got more done at work when I wasn’t checking my blog Reader and Blizzard Watch and Wowhead for updates all the time — so I’ve continued to avoid doing that while I’m on campus.

Anyhow, It’s Hallow’s End, so let’s start off with my Death Knights’ traditional holiday shenanigans before showing off all the other new outfits I’ve accumulated over the past few weeks.

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!

Pumpkin Head, Kraken Heart or Evil Pumpkin King VI

Hallowed Helm, Crystalvein Pauldrons, Krakken-Heart Breastplate, Veteran’s Scaled Belt, Greaves of the Bloodwarder, Royal Gauntlets of Silvermoon, Kraken Greaves, Yal’s Leafwrap Cloak, Blades of the Fallen Prince (upgraded, third tint)
I wasn’t quite sure what weapons I was going to use for a Hallow’s End kit this year — and then when I looked at the “Legion Artifacts” options, it was instantaneously obvious that these flaming blades were exactly the weapons I needed.

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.

Shu’halo Raincaller


Mystical Pauldrons of Elements, Stormbreaker Chestguard, Warmongering Gladiator’s Waistguard of Victory, Infection Resistant Legguards, Praetorian’s Tidecallers, Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Sharas’dal (PvP, default tint)
This Tauren totem-themed appearance of the Restoration Artifact is one of my favorites, but I never expected to get it because it required PvP.
I collected Marks of Honor with the insta-WQ perk that about half of the classes had, though, and whenever the Bareback Brawl PvP World Quest rewarded Marks of Honor, I’d go do it. Apparently all of that accumulated enough Honor for my account to qualify for the PvP appearances of my Artifacts when the Battle for Azeroth PvP changes rolled out in Patch 8.0.

Bronze Val’kyr

Shoulderplates & Treads of the Chosen Dead, Bloodfist Breastplate & Legplates, Gleaming Celestial Waistguard, Fists of Thane Kray-Tan, Lotrafen, Blazing Wings
A half-baked attempt to look like a Val’kyr. I initially thought to use the Glorious Breastplate, but when I tried that, I just couldn’t get the rest of the kit to work out at all. This chestpiece has a slightly better shape match to the Val’kyr metal bustier, anyway.
The effect is a little better on one of the more human-like races.

And yes, I put my Demon Hunter through the effort of getting this toy from the Darkmoon Faire many moons ago specifically for the purpose of using it in this kit.

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.

Carmine Dashing Scoundrel

Fierce Gladiator’s Leather Armor with The Dreadblades (upgraded, default tint)
This set has so many fabulous little details — and the hat was a Must Have!

Occultist of the Green Flame

Bloodstained Surgeon’s Shoulderguards, Robe of the Thousand Needles, Cord of the Patronizing Practicioner, Nemesis Gloves, Apprentice Boots, Shimmershell Cape, Scepter of Sargeras (default, original tint)
Those pathetic Cult of the Green Flame idiots have decent fashion sense, at least. I discovered the handsome combination of these ICC Priest tier lookalike items and the tunic version of this robe myself several years ago — but it’s taken seeing it in-game on these NPCs for me to finally get around to wearing it.

Void Researcher




Replica Sorcerer’s Robes Belt & Boots with Buoyant Shoulderpads, Gandling’s Gloves, and Staff of Haunted Memory
These shoulders from a leveling set introduced in Cataclysm are just perfect with the Sorcerer’s Robes.

Cold is the Void

Replica Deathmist Mantle Robe & Bracers with Replica Virtuous Belt, Royal Gloves, Conspirator’s Slippers, and Frostscythe of Lord Ahune
Blue Warlock clothes for a chilly Alliance Warlock.

In the Shadows of the Shadows

Replica Darkmantle Armor with Wicked Leather Headband and Vibro Knife
I’d thought about getting this set for my Demon Hunter — and indeed I have seen it on other Demon Hunters — but it wasn’t until I made a Void Elf Rogue that I had to have it to Mog over her heirlooms.
Kyrieana is a double agent — though she now appears to be working for the Alliance, her true loyalty remains with Silvermoon. On assignment from the Regent-Lord’s intelligence corps, she infiltrated Magister Umbric’s group. Her reports contributed to Regent-Lord Theron’s judgment that their research into the Void was too dangerous. She remained with the group after they were banished from Silvermoon to continue monitoring their activites; thus, she found herself trapped with all the others when the Incident occurred at the Telogrus Rift. When Alleria at last allowed her to leave Telogrus, Kyrieana made her way to the Ghostlands as quickly as she could and pledged renewed loyalty to Silvermoon, and her intention to keep reporting the activities of the ren’dorei to the Regent Lord, to Halduron Brightwing.

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.

If any of you, my dear readers, have kits that you’d like to share, I’d be happy to add you to the show! Just email me your picture(s), along with a list of the items in the outfit. I don’t regularly check my blog email, though, so if you’ve sent me an outfit, please make a comment on the most recent Sunday Mog Show post so that I know to check my blog email for your contribution.
