Last summer, I challenged myself to make a set of Transmogrification kits using each of the Warlords crafted weapons, and I put out a request for other Transmogrification ideas using Warlords crafted items. I got some great ideas! Since then, I’ve been slowly working on actually making those kits (or iterations of them, at any rate) in-game. I’ve also come up with several other ideas along the way. As I was trying not to make these posts too incredibly huge, I decided not to include kits that use only one relatively minor piece of Warlords crafted gear (usually a belt) — though I did include kits that use only one piece of Warlords crafted gear if it is a major piece such as shoulders, a chestpiece, or a weapon.
Stage Zero Armor
Only chestpiece, leggings, and helm pieces exist for this coloration of the Draenor-crafted armor. The primary use of the patterns for these items, which are not upgradable, is leveling the crafting skill itself.
Twilight-Heart Shoulderplates, Smoldering Breastplate & Greaves, Acherus Knight’s Girdle, Warlord’s Iron-Gauntlets & Sabatons, Nethersteel Claymore
Nalya Battlehorn’s pauldrons and belt look like they ought to go with the Smoldering items, but none of the available Truesteel upgrades are these colors.
The special Death Knight invisibelt shows off how elegantly styled this chestpiece really is. It does make me wonder, though, just how one gets this armor on and off.
This sword just seems made to go with the Warlord’s set.
Stage One Armor
Doomed Crown of Lei Shen (LFR), Contender’s Revenant shoulders breastplate & leggings, Truesteel belt gloves & boots (1-640), Tidebreaker Trident
This hat is so ridiculously silly that I can’t resist putting it atop any armor that is the right shade of bronze to match it.
I originally designed this kit with Gorehowl as the weapon, but after having spent months farming Karazhan for the dang thing, when it came time to actually make the kit, I decided that I liked the look of this trident better. I also decided that the overall effect looked better with one weapon instead of two, so Keija has switched to Arms for the time being.

Stage Two Armor
Truesteel Pauldrons Waistguard Gloves & Boots (all 2-655), Elder Tortoiseshell Helm Breastplate & Legplates, Stylish Black Shirt, Splinterspear Greatsword
Another example of the remarkable color palette coordination between Warlords crafted items and Mists items. The shirt fills in a gap between the bottom of the sleeve of the chestpiece and the top of the gloves.

Spaulders of Manifold Eyes (N), Truesteel Breastplate & Greaves (2-655), Elder Tortoiseshell belt gloves & boots, Crimson Silk Cloak, Ramkahen Ceremonial Hammer
This alternative combination of the Truesteel and Elder Tortoiseshell items was created by Silverblade of World of MogCraft. It was the best looking kit using the T12-Paladin (lookalike) shoulders I thought I’d ever seen, and it impressed me enough to actually go farm them up to make the kit for myself.
The only difference between this kit as I have made it and the way Silverblade originally designed it is the weapon. Of the weapons I already had on hand, I really like the royal scepter look of the Ramkahen hammer, and its colors coordinate well with the armor, too.

Stage Three Armor
Truesteel & Truesilver
Truesteel Pauldrons Waistguard & Boots (3-670), Truesilver Breastplate, Imperial Plate Leggings, Replica Gauntlets of Valor, Steelforged Greataxe (2-645), Admiral Taylor’s Greatsword
I especially wanted to use the 3-670 Truesteel shoulders, so the rest of the set had to grow from there. I really liked the similarity between the filigree on the Truesilver Breastplate and the filigree on the weapon and Truesteel armor. The Truesilver blacksmithing patterns are no longer available in the game, so you’ll have to find someone who already knows the pattern or get lucky on the AH. If you can’t find the Truesilver breastplate, the Chivalric Chestguard coordinates excellently with the rest of these pieces, though the overall look of the outfit will be darker.
Horde characters can’t use the appearance of Admiral Taylor’s Greatsword for Transmogrification, but they can equip it.
Savage Blood Required: 105
Circle’s Stalwart Helmet, Spaulders of the Scorned, Truesteel Breastplate & Greaves (3-670), Greatbelt of Living Waters (LFR), Flash Freeze Gauntlets, Sapphiron’s Scale Boots, Cloak of Cheerful Flowers, Sabre of the Faceless Moon, Steelforged Aegis (2-645)
I really like the shoulders of the T11 Paladin set, but the whole outfit was a little too much. As so often seems to happen, though, a couple of expansions later, along came the perfect set to play mix-and-match with.
Savage Blood Required: 75
Salvaged Steamwheedle Helm, Magnataur Pauldrons & Breastplate, Truesteel Waistguard (3-670), Blessed Trillium Greaves, Foundry-Fired Plate Handguards, Sha’tari Keeper Warboots, Blue Workman’s Shirt, Steelforged Saber (2-645), Steelforged Shield (3-660)
I love this shield. It looks almost as awesomely tanky as the famous Bulwark of Azzinoth (which I totally need to get… after Patch 7.0 clears out my inventory).
The coordination between the Northrend shoulders & chestpiece and this hat from the Cataclysm update to the 1-60 leveling experience was unexpected and quite delightful.
As with many sets, the shirt is necessary to fill in some tiny gaps between armor pieces that might otherwise be distracting.
