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 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.

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 week has been kind of crazy and working on a new outfit here and there has been a good way to relax.

Cyclops’ Ruin

Rune-Enscribed Hood, Fire-Chanter Shoulders, Decaying Herbalist’s Robes, Riplimb’s Lost Collar (N), Skygrip Handguards, Steppebeast Boots, Wild Wood Staff
Lord of Icecrown from WoWable requested a design for a Druid kit using the Mythic version of the Spur of the Great Devourer from Hellfire Citadel. I don’t have that weapon myself, so I chose an alternate staff with similar coloration and pointyness to actually make the kit with after I’d designed the outfit in the Dressing Room.
I thought that the creepiness of this Warlords Monk tier-lookalike hood would go well with the creepiness of the intended weapon. Then I built the outfit around the teal-contrasted-with-rust color scheme of the hood.
Here’s how the kit would look with the Spur of the Great Devourer:

I like how the overall effect of the ensemble has turned out — but now I’m having some totally different ideas for a Druid kit to go with this weapon…

Nether Devoured

Crown of the Forest Lord, Dreadleather Shoulderguard, Netherfiend Chestpiece, Relic Hunter’s Cord, Netherfiend Trousers, Cannonball Loader’s Grips, Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Malroc’s Staff of Command
This outfit went in a very, very different direction than I originally thought it would — nothing remains of the original idea that I started with.
Here’s how it would look with the Spur of the Great Devourer:

Grandma’s Kitchen Garden

Seer’s Padded Armor, Willow Belt, Scarecrow Trousers, Riding Gloves* + Revitalizing Wristguards, Riven Priesthood Slippers, Garden Shovel/Farmer’s Broom
When Kimorene existed as a separate alt, this was what she looked like, and this sweater was what she wore. In RP-space, Kimorene is one of the oldest of my characters by psychological age; she is Godmother to Kymberlea (and Kivrinne) and tends Kymberlea’s children while the Worgen Mage is out adventuring. Her previous appearance as “Princess of the Vir’naal” showed what she looked like when she was young.

Certain NPCs wear proper spectacles. I first noticed them on Sungshin Ironpaw at the Halfhill Market in Pandaria, but I’ve since spotted them on various others. If those spectacles ever become available for player characters to wear, not only would Kimorene always wear them but also most of my other Mage characters would probably end up wearing them as their default headgear, too.

Crimson Pilgrim


Whitemane’s Chapeau, Red Mageweave Shoulders, Scarlet Sin’dorei Robes, Girdle of Prophecy, Black Mageweave Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Light’s Wrath (hidden, default tint)
The Crimson Pilgrims seen in Legion Dalaran are a group of dissidents from the Scarlet Onslaught in New Hearthglen. They were scheduled to be executed for their heresy, but were rescued in the nick of time by the High Priest of the Netherlight Conclave.

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?

I’m doing teaching Science, and I’m still alive. — GLaDOS

It is the beginning of the semester and I am drowning in work because I haven’t yet found the rhythm of the routine that will best manage my workload and workflow through the week.

Seeing everyone’s picture posts and discussions about Battle for Azeroth, I’m getting increasingly antsy to just go to Kul Tiras already with one or more of the Blue Team — but I really must get my feet underneath me at school first.

Although I don’t really have time for even that much, I’m still logging into WoW every day to do trivial, trite, little legacy content things — the Northrend fishing quest with my Paladin, who wants that “Tiffany Cartier original” Jeweled Fishing Pole not just because it is TEH SHINEY but also because she is herself a Jewelcrafter — clearing H Magister’s Terrace with Kaelinda because I’ve decided that she needs to be Exalted with the Shattered Sun for RP reasons (to be explained in a story post sometime in the future) — checking the Broken Isles Emissary and doing it with Kaelinda if it is Suramar (just give me the darn carpet already, Thalyssra!) or with Kiralaira if it is Argussian Reach or with both Kaelinda and Kiralaira if it is Kirin Tor.

Nevertheless, I’ve managed to make some time for Mogging, too…

Alunaria’s Adornments


Conquerors Nightsong Cover, Mantle of Gnarled Overgrowth, Shaladrassil Tunic, Hozen-Speed Waistband, Kilt of Immortal Nature, Shardtooth Gloves, Dreadlord’s Tattered Wingcover (LFR), Embroidered Shirt, Tabard of the Dreamweavers, Warmongering Combatant’s Battle Staff
This beautiful Dreamweavers outfit was originally designed by Alunaria. I couldn’t make it with Kerithian because she doesn’t have the rep for the tabard yet. As I thought about it, I liked how doing it with Kerisa instead (with a few substitutions for items I don’t have) would show some cross-faction we-all-weep-for-a-World-Tree-in-the-Moonglade-and-the-Dreamgrove Druid solidarity.

Eclipsion Sniper

Thelwater’s Steelwoven Eyepatch, Furious Gladiator’s Chain Spaulders, Fel-Chain Hauberk & Leggings, Bramblemail Belt Gloves & Boots, Purple Trophy Tabard of the Illidari, Starbolt Longbow
So, I had two cloth-wearing Blood Elves and two leather-wearing Blood Elves. Recently, I created two plate-wearing Blood Elves. It was somewhat inevitable that I would want to have a mail-wearing Blood Elf to complete the set.
Karolissa makes her debut wearing an Illidari Trophy Tabard kit because making a mail outfit to go with this tabard has been on my Mogging to-do list for quite a while now, so why not? It must be said, though, that I’m much happier with the kit I was able to make using these Legion-era items than I would have been with a kit made from Burning Crusade-era items.

Hand of Illidan

Cursed Vision of Sargeras, Demon-Rend Shoulderblades, Shaladrassil Tunic, Illidari belt bracers & boots, Bladefang Legguards, Fuzzy Gloves, Slayer’s Tabard, Warglaives of Azzinoth/Twinblades of the Deceiver (upgraded, first tint)
Many of Illidan’s minions in Outland wear either the Green Trophy Tabard of the Illidari or its purple variation. Almost all Legion Illdari NPCs wear an upgraded version of the Green variation. Patch 8.0 made the new Illidari tabard available to Demon Hunter PCs as well from their Order Hall armor vendor.

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.

Silver Hand Sunwalker Dawnchaser

Battleplate of Immolation (N, lookalike) with Barbaric Iron Breastplate, Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Embroidered Shirt, Tabard of the Lightbringer, and Talon Guard Wingsmasher
I’m not quite sure what weapon the NPCs are wielding — though I’m fairly certain that it’s a PvP model — so I just picked something from my collection that had similar coloration and somewhat similar aesthetics.

Princess of the Vir’naal

Mountainsage Hood, Mooncloth Robe, Demonic Gladiator’s Silk Cord, Riding Gloves* + Orphic Bracers, Kurkenstoks, Tabard of Ramhaken, Torth-Slayer’s Staff
I had an idea in mind to change Kaylynda into from her previous outfit, but I didn’t do it right when I thought of it. Then this idea ambushed me and now I’ve forgotten what the other one was. Maybe it will come back to me in a week or two.
This alter-ego character is named Kimorene. She once existed as an actual alt who was a Priest. As a Priest, she’d wear this variation on the outfit —

— which uses the Nightvale Cowl, Primal Mooncloth shoulders and belt, Hammer of the Astral Plane, and Heartbound Tome.

This post marks two years of the Sunday Mog Show!
There are 52 weeks in a year, and this is Episode 52, so that averages out to a Sunday Mog Show post every two weeks.

These first two outfits were created specifically for the War of Thorns.

Horde Scout

Fireguard Shoulders, Bladed Chaos Tunic, Aitokk’s Belt, Tough Mushanhide Leggings, Warhide Gloves, Black Featherlight Boots, Orange Martial Shirt, Scout’s Tabard, Wild Combatant’s Slicer
The boldness of this outfit in proclaiming “as a Horde Scout, I am exactly where I am supposed to be” was good cover for Kelisanna as she poked her nose into every aspect of Sylvanas’s operation in Ashenvale and Darkshore to make a full report for Regent-Lord Theron.

Drassil Defender

Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Furious Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Malfurion’s Vestments of Conquest, Girdle of Lenience, Mana-Saber Hide Gloves, Dark Leather Boots, Darnassus Tabard, Kihrawr’s Scratching Post
Kerithian was wearing this outfit (without the tabard) when she went to meet with High King Wrynn in Stormwind. Athough she is personally not particularly fond of Teldrassil and Darnassus, after she arrived in Kalimdor and began to understand the situation there, she put on the Darnassus tabard to express her support for her beleagured kin.

Lordaeron, Lost




Azure Silk Hood, Enumerated Shoulderpads, Mindwrack Robes, Clutch of Andros*, Cobalt-Threaded Gloves, Apprentice Boots, Mantle of Undercity, Undercity Tabard, Wand of Qiraji Nobility, Light-Imbued Lantern
In the interest of faction parity, here is an outfit for the other racial capital city that was lost at the outset of Battle for Azeroth. I have never liked Undercity, though, so the chances of me asking Zidormi to turn back time in Tirisfal Glades are quite small indeed.

Silvermoon Paragon

Judgment Spaulders, Bloodforged Chestpiece, Girdle of the Silver Hand, Hyperion Legplates Gauntlets & Greaves, Scarlet Filigreed Doublet, Silvermoon City Tabard, Blood Tempered Ranseur*/Hammer of the Penitent + Bayeaux Shield/Ashbringer (default, original tint)
I like to use the Hyperion set with the Silvermoon tabard because of the colors. Rather than just doing the same things I’ve done before with the Hyperion set, I decided to put on the Judgment shoulders. Then I was delighted by how nicely the Order Hall belt coordinated… which really shouldn’t have surprised me, given that the Judgment set and the Silver Hand set use similar red-black-gold color schemes.

Turalyon’s Victory


Turalyon’s Plate shoulders chestplate & legplates with Demonic Gladiator’s Scaled belt gloves & boots, Wild Gladiator’s Gavel, and King’s Bulwark
After making a kit for my new Blood Elf Paladin that combined Liadrin’s Plate with the red Horde PvP recolor of the crafted Leystone set, I wondered if Turalyon’s Plate would work equally well with the blue Alliance PvP recolor of the Leystone set. It didn’t, not at all — but it does look fabulous with the Alliance PvP recolor of the Antorus raid set.

While Legion was the active expansion, I hadn’t bothered to annotate my Mog listings with which Artifact & tint I was using in my outfits. Now that we’re moving on into Battle for Azeroth, I’m thinking that I’d better go back through and add that information to the “Things my [Class] Wears” pages. Not right now, though. Too much to do before school starts…

The Legion Must Fall

Fel-Proof Goggles, Demon-Rend Shoulderblades, Dominant Combatant’s Felskin Tunic, Felshroud Belt, Scouting Trousers, Cranefeather Gloves, Interrogator’s Bloody Footpads, Shroud of the Final Stand, Legionfall Tabard, Illidari Warglaive
I think this tabard looks pretty awful. Nevertheless, Kiralaira insisted that she needed to get Exalted with the Armies of Legionfall and make a kit with their tabard — something about the fall of the Legion being the destiny and purpose of existence of a Demon Hunter, et cetera, et cetera. She achieved this feat predominantly through rep tokens from Champion missions and Kirin Tor Emissaries — and I probably won’t ever actually complete the Legionfall campaign with anyone.
With appropriate substitutions for shoulders and weapons, this outfit would work for any of the leather-wearing classes.

Grove Keeper

Garb of the Astral Warden (LFR-lookalike) with Nordrassil Headpiece, Runesworn Grips, and Scythe of Elune (Pillar of Creation tint)
There weren’t very many Legion raid sets that I wanted enough to LFR for them. This was one of them.
The hat I would love to use with this outfit is the Crown of Courage from the Lunar Festival.

The T5 hat is almost as good, though — I only noticed recently that it has those little leaves wrapping around the head!

Fel Heart


Felheart Raiment with Cloak of the Untamed Predator and Scepter of Sargeras (Light’s Heart tint)
It must be the crimson with gold trim and green accents that make this set seem the most Sin’dorei of all the Warlock Tier sets to me.

Quel’dorei at the Sunwell


Brutal Gladiator’s Leather Armor with Blue Linen Shirt and The Dreadblades (Pillar of Creation tint)
This ensemble, the Rogue PVP counterpart to the Sunwell raid set, is the outfit worn by Vereesa Windrunner.

Jade Guardian


Jade set with Talonguard Helmet, Expedition Defender’s Shoulders, and Darkened Broadsword/Qon’s Flaming Scimitar (LFR) + Shomi’s Ward
Although this set has gorgeous colors, I don’t like how the chestpiece and leggings look on female characters. Thus, the Male Tauren Warrior gets to wear it, instead.

Redeemed Blood Knight III


Fearless Combatant’s Scaled Shoulders Girdle Gauntlets & Sabatons, Liadrin’s Plate chestpiece & legplates, Blood Knight Tabard, Wild Gladiator’s Mageblade, Blood Knight Defender
I acquired the PvP recolor of the crafted Leystone set specifically so that I could make this combination with the Liadrin’s Plate set. I wonder… does the blue Alliance PvP recolor work equally well with the Turalyon’s Plate set?

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 Sunday Mog Show goes golden!

You know what? There needs to be an “I like your Mog” emote. So many times I see folks wearing really awesome outfits, but none of the available emotes are really very good for telling them that. Cheer and smile and wave and highfive are a little too ambiguous, and whistle and grin and blow-a-kiss are too creepy.

Guardian of the Dream

Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Veil of Turning Leaves, Moonglade Robe, Shado-Pan Initiate’s Belt, Leggings of the Chosen Dead (N), Shining Buckle Gauntlets
Kerisa was finally ready to finish her Order Hall Campaign — and to do so, she needed to look the part of The Archdruid.
I left the Trial of Valor pants on because I liked the way their side panels looked on the robe.

Guardian of Hyjal

Nordrassil Headpiece & Wrath-Mantle, Merciless Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Tunic & Legguards, Girdle of Nefarious Strategy (LFR), Heth’Jatari Battlegloves, Leyman’s Boots, Staff of the Verdant Circle
Kerithian was one of the druids who tended Nordrassil during its recovery following the battle with Archimonde. She left Nordrassil to assist in the areas surrounding Shaladrassil after the defeat of Xavius in the Emerald Nightmare.

Purple Stormclouds

Snake Spaulders, Stormstrike Vest, Band of the Night Raven, Earthfury Legguards, Bramblemail Gloves, Treads of the Wasteland (N), Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Streamtalker Slicers, Cobalt Buckler*
I’ve wanted to make a kit with this chestpiece, a recolor of the Classic Shaman “Elements” set, for a very long time. When I was farming for T1 and T2 about a year ago, it occurred to me that the T1 pants would go quite nicely with it.
The belt, the shirt, and the shield pull out more of that turquoise accent color from the vest, making the kit more visually interesting than it would have been if it were all purple.
The Bastion of Twilight looming over Loch Modan freaks me out more than a little.

Radiant Glory

Battleplate of Radiant Glory (N) with Stormwind Vanguard Polearm or Archon’s Gavel + Masterwork Spiritguard Shield
The Valkyra shieldmaidens of Stormheim wear a unique recolor of the Dragon Soul Paladin set. It is most like the LFR coloration, except brighter and more golden. At present, though, I only have the Normal mode version of the set.
As NPCs, the Valkyra can wield a polearm as a 1H weapon together with a shield. Players have to choose one or the other. This particular polearm is awarded from the pre-Leigon Broken Isles scenario and is thus faction specific. The Alliance version is this one, golden with a blue gem. The Horde version is dark grey, like tarnished silver, with a red gem.

Infusion of Clarity

Sage’s Mantle, Warp Infused Drape, Cord of the High Priest, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Communal Staff
Having just used these shoulders with the orange version of this robe for Kaohana’s Midsummer outfit, I thought that next I should use them with the blue version of the robe. I was going to Hide the belt, until I saw how nice the Priest Order Hall belt looked with the robe. Then using a Priest-exclusive staff, too, seemed like the thing this outfit wanted.

Silver Hand Sunwalker Brave

Mantle of Winged Triumph (LFR), “Fireproof” Venture Co. Blastplate, Greatbelt of Living Waters (LFR), “Super Sterilized” Blastguard Legplates, Grips of the Fallen Council (LFR), Sabatons of the Humble, Lightborn Spire
The Sunwalker Braves at the Sanctum of Light are wearing the Normal mode Siege of Orgrimmar Paladin set, albeit with a different chestpiece. I only have the LFR version of the set, however, and the pants are the one item of the set that I didn’t get. So I have subbed in these Warlords items that are vaguely similar in color and design.
I don’t have the Tabard of the Lightbringer and probably never will, unless I decide to spend some time during Battle for Azeroth doing the Shadowmourne questline with my Death Knight. I tried to approximate the Tabard of the Lightbringer with my guild tabard, but the closest I could get was the rook chess piece icon, with the icon and border in light blue and the background color in light gray — the colors inverted because light gray is not an available color for the icon and border of a guild tabard. That wasn’t satisfactory, so I concluded that it would be better just to go without a tabard.

Reinforced Yak-Herding Apparel

Sunsong Armored Helm, Chilled Shoulderplates, Breastplate of Kel’balor, Dojani Girdle, Felsworn Legplates, Reinforced Hound-Handler’s Gauntlets (LFR), Lead-Soled Seabed Striders (LFR), Yak-Herder’s Longstaff
As promised, a more “everyday” sort of outfit using this combination of shoulders, gloves, and boots.

Death by a Thousand Cuts

Black Rose Amice, Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Felweave Raiment, Catalcysmic Gladiator’s Cord of Accuracy, Junglepicker Gloves, Withered Slippers
When Kalaneia dinged 110, the next stage of her Order Hall Campaign was to rescue Shinfel Blightsworn. Because rescuing Shinfel was what Kishalla came to Dreadscar Rift to demand that The Netherlord do, Kalaneia promptly assigned her to do it.
This robe is suitably melodramatic for the “life is pain” mindset of an Affliction Warlock, though it has never particularly appealed to me. It looks terribly uncomfortable. Kishalla, however, insisted upon wearing it, perhaps to prove to Shinfel that she had not “gone soft” in her erstwhile tutor’s absence.

Fierce Combatant’s Felskin

Fierce Combatant’s Felskin Armor
I managed to collect all of the pieces of this armor set from using my insta-WQ item on PvP WQs, so I figured I might as well wear it for awhile. This helm also has a cowl in the back that requires the high ponytail hairstyle to fit over it, so I guess Kira will be wearing her hair that way for a little while longer.
It would have been more thematically appropriate to go to Argus for these pictures — but Kira still has her primary hearthstone set at Sanctum of the Stars, so going to Black Temple was easier.

Arcane Inquisitor

Arcane Singed Mantle, Manawracker Vestments, Warmongering Gladiator’s Cord of Victory, Zaetar’s Gloves, Seawitch Sandals, Telmor Soulpriest Staff
Have you noticed that the robe for the cloth gear awarded from Broken Isles World Quests is the same style as the robe worn by the Inquisitor race of demons?

Dark Before Dawn


Fierce Combatant’s Silk Cowl Amice & Treads, Robe of Glowing Stone (N), Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle, Nightvale Gloves, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Staff of Immaculate Recovery
A Priestly sort of kit, to be sure — but Kaelinda is the one who has the Legion PvP items, thanks to her insta-WQ Order Hall perk.

Farseer of the Earthen Ring

Battlebound Spaulders, Nexus-Strider Breastplate, Tol’Vir Hereditary Girdle, Frozen Forest Kilt, Farseer’s Gauntlets, Tabard of the Earthen Ring
An update of an earlier Earthen Ring kit (Things my Shaman Wears #15), to wear while doing the Artifact retirement quest chain in Silithus.

~*~*~

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.
