A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Night Elf Druid. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

2) Vindictive Archdruid of the Alliance

Vindictive Gladiator’s Dragonhide Armor with Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Runesworn Grips, and Intensity
It’s so nice that when I purchase a PvP appearance with a Horde-side character, I also get the corresponding Alliance appearance. I’m so very very fond of the blue-white-gold color scheme that whenever there is gear with faction-dichotomous appearances, I almost always like the Alliance version better.

1) Spring Rain

Springrain Armor
Boosted characters recieve this set of armor. It can also be obtained from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.

5) Vindictive Farseer of the Alliance

Vindictive Gladiator’s Ringmail Armor with Helmet of Ten Storms and Sundered Waistband

I looked at some other options for weapons, but the base appearance of the Elemental Artifact complements this armor so well that nothing else was better.

4) Stream Talker

Streamtalker Set with Squire’s Shirt
Boosted characters recieve this set of gear. It can also be obtained from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.

3) Darkmoon Daredevil

Sparkleshell Mantle, Darkmoon Breastplate, Belt of the Gladiator, Soldier’s Leggings, Wastewalker’s Gauntlets*, Sabatons of the Flamewalker, Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Tremendous Tankard O’Terror, Driftmire Shield*
Don’t be fooled by the huge tankard — it’s just for show. Whether the mount is animal or mechanical, she’s one of the sharpest stunt riders at the Faire.
One thing the Transmogrification interface doesn’t tell me is if an item I’ve chosen is something that isn’t available anymore… /headdesk.

The Ice Cream Mitts are an excellent alternative for the gloves. The Shield of the Barrens is the most comparable shield design.

2) Glittering Prize

Glimmering Mail Pauldrons & Girdle, Lambent Scale Breastplate & Legguards, Mail Combat Gauntlets & Boots, Competitor’s Tabard, Thun’grim’s Mace*, Glyphed Buckler
An outfit using the Competitor’s Tabard from the in-game Battleground participation event celebrating the 2008 Summer Olympics, in honor of the 2016 Summer Olympics. At level 30, Kjerstin was able to use the chestpiece & leggings from my original Competitor’s Tabard mail designs, but she had to choose different gloves & boots. Although the cloth and leather kits looked complete without shoulders, I felt like the heavier appearance of the mail items was more balanced with shoulders included.
This mace was one of the possible rewards from a pre-Cataclysm low-level Horde Warrior questchain.

1) Element-Speaker

Mystical Pauldrons Vest & Kilt of Elements, Stormbringer Belt, Defender Gauntlets, Mail Combat Boots, Spell Axe of the Farseer, Royal Treasury Courier’s Shield
Kjerstin spent most of her early existence wearing variations on this outfit.

Looking at the Battle for Azeroth questing and dungeon armor set previews from Wowhead, I like the Kul Tiras sets —

— quite a bit better than the Zandalar sets.

quest set images from here; dungeon set images from here, here, here, here, and here

Okay, for cloth I like both sets of designs about the same. For leather, mail, and plate, though, I like the Kul Tiras designs much better.

When I mentioned to BTH the other day that the new expansion was coming out on August 14th, he said he wasn’t very interested in coming back to WoW. He played WoW to raid, but he doesn’t want to commit to organized guild raiding anymore, and he didn’t like his Group Finder PUGing experience in Legion. He’s also gotten tired of the “faction war –> work together to defeat a common enemy –> back to the faction war” cycle of WoW storylines. I’m tired of that too; for me, Battle for Azeroth might, like Warlords, be a “holding pattern” expansion of waiting to see if the next one will be more interesting to me.

Between being more interested in the Kul Tiras fashion and the high probability that I’ll be playing Battle for Azeroth completely on my own — not even leveling my first character with BTH — I’ve been thinking that when I’ve finished up my Legion goals and am ready to move on into Battle for Azeroth content, I’d really rather level as Alliance in Kul Tiras first — before I level as Horde in Zandalar.

Here is Kaylynda dinging 110 from a Pet Battle against Ashlei.

With this accomplished, I simply bought myself a level 110 Alliance character of each of the other armor classes.
I used the level 110 boost that came with buying Battle for Azeroth to boost my Dwarf Shaman. Then I spent the equivalent of two more expansions, or a week and a half of groceries, or three or four new hardback novels to boost my Dwarf Paladin and a newly created Night Elf Druid.

Blue Team is Ready to Go!

As you might have observed from Sunday on the Promenade this week, Kaelinda finished her Trial of Valor quest and Kerisa got a lucky drop of the LFR version of the ensemble. Kerisa will, however, continue farming Trial of Valor to get the Normal version of the ensemble. Alas, no luck in Emerald Nighthold.

Kerisa reached Exalted with Val’sharah. Now she can use Kirin Tor Emissary for Suramar.

Kaobeka has finished making the bags that my Highmountain Tauren alts will need. She’s got enough extra materials to make several more bags, though, so I’ll keep logging on with her to do those tailoring CDs and the surplus bags will go on the AH and make me some gold.

My Warrior dinged 110 after completing Stormheim and about half of Highmountain. Shortly thereafter, she had three quests for Maw of Souls: one from having done the Tideskorn Harbor/Helmouth Shallows sidequest area of Stormheim while leveling (something the rest of my alts so far have skipped), one from the next step of her Order Hall Campaign, and one from the Blacksmithing questchain. Well, then. My other relatively new level 110s have been sitting on dungeon quests for their Order Hall Campaigns, waiting for me to finish leveling everyone else, but I figured I’d better just go and get my Warrior’s Maw of Souls run done — mostly for the Blacksmithing questchain progression, to be honest. I actually had to run it twice, because there was a Warrior Order Hall quest item that dropped from Ymiron that I wasn’t fast enough picking up the first time before the go-go-go group leader blew the horn…

OK, now this countdown is starting to make me feel anxious, too. This suddenly doesn’t feel like very much time to finish leveling 5 more characters and complete 9 more Order Hall Campaigns — especially because I will be taking a week off in late July to attend the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education.

Trial of Valor LFR was good to me this week.

Vestment of the Chosen Dead

Vestment of the Chosen Dead (N) with Gossamer Belt and Staff of the Plague Beast
At last, the perfect set of armor to wear with this staff from Naxxramas!
My favorite thing about this set is the horns on the hip. Although they appear over the robe, they’re actually part of the pants. I could wear the horns with any robe I want to!
Confusingly, the Ensemble for this set is called “Vestment of the Chosen Dead”, but it is called “Regalia of the Chosen Dead” in the Sets tab of the Appearances collection.

Aspirant’s Vestment of the Chosen Dead

Hood of Rationality, Dark Coven Shoulderpads (10N), Robes of Celestial Adornment (LFR), Telubis’ Binding of Patience, Leggings of the Lower Planes (LFR), Oiled Rigger’s Handwraps (LFR), Junglestrider Sandals, Drape of the Unworthy (LFR), Distant Land
I acquired most of the major pieces of the LFR version of the Trial of Valor set while working on the quest to get the Normal version. When I was done with the quest, however, I didn’t want to keep trying for the LFR pieces I hadn’t gotten yet.

Aspirant’s Garb of the Chosen Dead

Garb of the Chosen Dead (LFR) with Nibelung
Kerisa was fortunate enough to have the Ensemble for the LFR version of the Trial of Valor set drop for her while she was working on the quest to get the Normal version.

Sunwalker Mender

Crown of Empowered Fate, Glorious Shoulderpads, Refuge Armor, Hyperion Girdle, Judgment Legplates, Area 52 Engineering Gloves, Insignia Cloak, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet
Although I also like the red and gold Fiery Plate or Hyperion gloves with this outfit, I stuck with the blue gloves I’d originally chosen to keep more of that Thunder Bluff turquoise in the color scheme.
I originally designed this kit with a 1H Mace + Shield, but of course the current Artifact paradigm for Holy Paladins is a 2H weapon. After looking at all of my 2H Maces, the base appearance of The Silver Hand itself seemed the most fitting for a Sun Paladin.

Seeker for the Tribe


Stormforged Shoulders, Shamblehide Chestguard, Sash of the Grand Hunt, Barbaric Legstraps, Murkblood Oven Mitts, Marauder’s Boots, Kodo Mallet + Sternhorn’s Shield/Tribute Gun, Thunder Bluff Tabard
Kamalia and Kawneiha do the “Mom & Me” thing to show off weapons to coordinate with this kit for both of the mail-wearing classes.

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.

Not a lot of either leveling or Order Hall Campaign progression happened this week because it was World Quest bonus week. Doing 20 WQs with all my level 110s — especially the three newest ones, who are all starving for Order Resources — took priority over anything else.

Well, I did do some of that WQing while sitting in LFR queues. Although I forgot to go get bonus roll tokens with my Druid before she went to LFR, she did get the lookalike of the Monk tier chestpiece from Emerald Nighthold. I remembered that I had some high ilevel plate items that I’d purchased off the AH sitting in my guild bank. With those, plus chasing WQs with equipment rewards, my Paladin was able to get her ilevel up enough to queue for Trial of Valor. So I’ve run Trial of Valor four times this week (once with each armor class), which is quite enough!
My “things to do in LFR” list just keeps getting longer. Gnomecore’s Aurinko reminded me that the LFR coloration of the Emerald Nighthold Priest set is quite nice, and checking the availability showed that the lookalikes of the shoulders and chestpiece are possible loot drops for a Mage from the Tormented Guardians wing. So Kaelinda did that, albeit with no luck. And I remembered that a while back, I designed a “pink” outfit for Navimie that used the lookalike of the Emerald Nighthold Rogue LFR shoulders. Both my Druid and my Demon Hunter went and tried for those, unsuccessfully.

I did get some leveling done — my Warrior insisted. She didn’t want to look like a poncy blood elf while doing it, however, so she went back to her Ymirjar Battlelord outfit (#53). She managed to complete the Thorignir chapter of Stormheim. That wasn’t enough to tick her over to the next level, but any progress is progress.
My Death Knight, who was almost but not quite level 106 after the Darkmoon Faire at the beginning of this month, and was the only one of the Twelve Classes remaining at level 105, wanted to get to 106. With only 7% of the level left to go and not feeling like doing any serious zone questing, I pursued the Alchemy questchain instead. “You have to work with Deucus Valdera?” Kivrinne said. “Oh, Kregga, I’m sorry.”
