If you’re going to wear the Darkmoon Top Hat to get that sweet 10% XP and rep buff, you might as well own the look.

To allow characters of any level to wear them, I designed these outfits exclusively with items usable by characters in the Classic (1-60) level bracket.

Darkmoon Sleight-of-Hand

Elder Wizard’s Mantle, Cat Lover’s Vest, Nesingwary’s Sash, Genavie’s Leggings, Shimmering Gloves, Duskwoven Sandals, Tuxedo Shirt, Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Enchanted Azsharite Felbane Staff*
Trying for a stage magician sort of look here. I almost didn’t use any shoulders with this kit, until I saw how nicely these ones complemented the cloak.
A lookalike of the staff is the Rod of the Void Caller, a quest reward from Hellfire Peninsula. For a low-level character, the Magician Staff would also work nicely.

Darkmoon Flower Seller

Songbird Blouse, Dervish Belt, Leggings of the Fang, Inscribed Leather Gloves, Dark Leather Boots, Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Staff of the Verdant Circle
“All I want is a place somewhere,
Far away from the cold night air,
With one enormous chair —
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly?
Lots of coal making lots of heat!
Lots of chocolate for me to eat!
Warm [face (?)], warm hands, warm feet!
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly!
Someone’s head resting on my knee
[Nice and cozy (?)] as it could be
Who takes good care of me —
Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly…”
My Fair Lady

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.

Darkmoon Demolisher

Acid-Etched Pauldrons, Revenant Chestplate & Leggings, Symbolic Belt Gauntlets & Greaves, Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Darkmoon Hammer
This kit takes its inspiration from the outfits worn by Mola and Ziggie Sparks.
There are two sets of plate armor that use the “Revenant” name: one from Classic that is a recolor of the crafted Thorium armor set and has a lot of lookalike items from Burning Crusade quest rewards, and one from Wrath that is a lookalike of the crafted Cobalt armor set. This outfit uses the Classic items.

Although most Monks focus on achieving perfection in the philosophy and fighting style of just one of the August Celestials, all Monks respect and endeavor to follow the virtues embodied by each of Pandaria’s four deities.

Although they don’t use the tabard, this set of outfits that I made for my secondary Monk to show dedication to each of the August Celestials also belongs in this collection.

Mantle of Closed Doors (H), Felfume Robes, Belt of False Dignity, Silkweave Gloves, Suspicious Slippers, Nightfallen Tabard
When I realized that Kaelinda was about to begin the stage of the Suramar campaign that would feature the Elf Family Reunion, it was time to declare her support for the Nightfallen. To complete the effect, I am also using the title “of the Nightfall” with this outfit.

Student of the Dusk Lily

Cat Lover’s Vest, High Councillor’s Sash, Darkweave Breeches, Elder’s Gloves & Boots, Shal’dorei Tabard, Magician Staff
I love that Transmogrification now allows anything up to the cap of one’s current level scaling bracket. It made putting together a nice outfit for a brand-new level 20 character so much easier!
I’m a little bit disappointed that the Allied Race tabards are exclusive to each of those particular races, because I think this tabard is rather pretty and I’d like to be able to make kits for my other Elf Mages with it, too.
New Nightborne characters start out inside the Nighthold. The main gate to the rest of Suramar City is closed, but there’s a portal to Shal’aran. If a low-level Nightborne character tries to go out into Meredil, however, they can only get about as far as the point in the last picture before Occuleth teleports them back inside with a snarky remark.

Farstrider’s Parade Dress

Magnificent Shoulders, Silvermoon Armor, Sparkleshell Belt, Pounding Leggings, Glimmering Mail Gauntlets & Greaves, Silvermoon tabard, Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix
I made a kit using this chestpiece and the Skyfire Hawk-Bow a few years ago, so I thought perhaps I’d just update that outfit (Hunter #13) a little bit to use with the Silvermoon tabard. When I went and looked at it, however, I wasn’t really all that happy with it, so I tried again. I’m much better pleased with how this outfit turned out.
Also — I’m so glad the devs updated the female Blood Elf archery animation! It looked so awkward and stupid before; now it looks graceful and powerful, like the female Night Elf archery animation.

Thalassian Battlelord

Helm of Infinite Visions, Mantle of the Desert Crusade, Bloodforged Chestpiece & Sabatons, Replica Lightforge Belt, Hyperion Legplates & Gauntlets, Silvermoon Tabard, Hammer of the Penitent + Blood Knight Defender/Blood Knight Maul + Greatmace of the Order/Twinblade of the Phoenix
There are a lot of nice Sin’dorei-themed weapons, so I made variations for all of the Warrior specs so that I could show more of them off.

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.

So I was thinking about how my Nightborne Mage just needs to exist, and then I started thinking about how all of the Minor Mages — and my Dwarf Paladin & Shaman — more or less just exist for the sake of existing.

So then I thought, well, if I were to roll one alt of every Allied Race and be content to let them idle at level 20 just so that I could have “one of everything”, how many Allied Races characters would it take for me to reach the account limit of 50 characters total?

And then I thought, well, if I’m going to do that, and have, like, both an Exodar Draenei and a Lightforged Draenei, a Darkspear Troll and a Zandalari Troll, a Bronzebeard Dwarf and a Dark Iron Dwarf, a Stormwind Human and a Kul Tiras Human, a Green Orc and a Brown Orc, et cetera — then I really ought to have both a Huojin Pandaren and a Tushui Pandaren.

So then I went and rerolled the Tushui Pandaren Mage that I’d created back at the beginning of Mists, then later pruned in a fit of alt fatigue. She’s not quite finished with the Wandering Isle yet, but I’ll get her at least to level 20 eventually…

So what does that make the character count?
There’s the one-of-each-class set of characters, currently numbering 12.
Then there’s the Minor Mages who, with the recent additions of the Nightborne and the Tushui Pandaren, currently number 13.
Then there’s my extra Tauren characters, who currently number 5.
Then there’s my extra Dwarf characters, who currently number 2.
That makes 32 characters total.
I’ll be converting one of those current extra Tauren into a Highmountain and rolling two completely new Highmountain Tauren characters, bringing the total to 34.
I’ll be rolling two Void Elves — I’ve realized that as well as a Mage, I’m also going to need a Void Elf Rogue (Subtlety, of course) because Alliance Rogue T9 — which brings the total to 36.
That leaves 14 spots for additional Allied Races characters.
The already announced Lightforged Draenei, Zandalari Troll, Dark Iron Dwarf, Mag’har Orc, and Kul Tiran Human would take up 5 of those spots, leaving 9 spots open for future Allied Races such as Taunka, Yaungol, Tuskarr, Vrykul, Ogre, Vulpera…

After my initial foray into the Trial of Style, I went back to get the other plate ensemble, the two mail ensembles, and the two cloth ensembles. By the time I finished that, the event was over. Oh well, the leather ensembles had been the least interesting to me anyway. Maybe when Trial of Style season three occurs in August, I’ll pick up the season one and season two leather ensembles as well as the new season three ensembles for all the armor types. Anyhow, in the process of getting those other Trial of Style ensembles, I came up with a few outfit ideas that I liked enough to keep wearing.

Child of the Exodus


Ceremonial Shoulderpads of Karabor, Astralaan Robe, Ceremonial Sash of Karabor, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Exodar tabard & cloak, Staff of the Redeemer
I designed this kit for the “Faction Pride” theme at the Trial of Style; it placed third.
Kaprikka was born on Draenor, in the region called Farahlon, in the first century after the Draenei settled there; she is between 200 and 250 years old. She has no living relatives who remember Argus; her parents were also born on worlds on which the Draenei had temporarily settled, and their progenitors have all perished in the course of the countless times that the Draenei have been found by the Legion.

Boastful Humility

Crown of Boastful Words (LFR), Turalyon’s Spaulders of Conquest, Chestguard of Illumination, Truesteel Waistguard (3-670), Legguards of the Emerald Brood (H), Replica Gauntlets of Heroism, Sabatons of the Humble, Blue Linen Shirt, Mace of the Order, Azure-Shield of Coldarra
I originally designed this kit for the “Make Me Laugh” theme at the Trial of Style; I made a mostly-coherent kit with a somewhat silly hat and one wildly out-of-place item: the Bloodscale Belt.

It placed second, and I liked it enough to swap in a better-coordinating belt and keep wearing it.

Elemental Magic


Empyrial Elemental Crown, Shoulderguards of Dark Meditations (LFR), Green Dragonscale Breastplate, Belt of Singed Shame, Wet Suit Leggings, Sundered Gauntlets & Footwraps, Netherbane
I was rather surprised when I won with this kit, and I don’t know how much of that to attribute to my contrarian and probably trollish voting pattern — in that particular contest only — of always picking the outfit that I thought the other contestants were not likely to pick when everyone else was on the stage. Then, because mini-Kam was bored of what she had been wearing, she decided to keep wearing it.

Quiet Meditation

Yalia’s Cowl, Tenderheart Shoulders, Robe of Quiet Meditation, Galaxyfire Girdle, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Dusklight Drape, Embroidered Shirt, Karabor Arcanist Rod
In another of my Trial of Style attempts, the “Zen” theme came up. I threw on this set — minus the shoes (because I was doing ToS with my Draenei) and the shirt — feeling a little like I was cheating to just be using a set — and then I won that round. I love the necklace that’s part of the robe for this set, and the color combination of dusty blue and old rose and antique gold and chocolate brown makes this my favorite recolor of this set. Despite how much I like this set, I hadn’t yet managed to wear it — so when Kaylynda wanted a change of clothes, she got to do it.

This week being my Spring Break, I finally managed to sit down and power through the rest of Suramar.


It was indeed some very well done storytelling, and I enjoyed it — though it helped quite a bit that I’m at ilevel 900 from the slow ratchet of WQ rewards and already have flying. Although I still think she’s a conceited snob, I grew to like Arcanist Valtrois a bit more when I got to see her in her element, as it were, working with the ley lines — and the quest where she butts heads with Stellagosa in Zharkhenar cracked me up. I still like Occuleth the best, though.

I am not entirely “done” with Suramar, however, as I still haven’t gotten the Leywoven Flying Carpet. Kaelinda has Paragoned for the Nightfallen at least twelve times by now, and it’s getting rather discouraging to keep getting nothing but gold and Wakening Essences and other random junk when I open the caches. sigh…

I’d been making myself wait to purchase Battle for Azeroth at least until I’d completed Suramar and would be able to do both of the Horde-side Allied Race recruitment scenarios. I’d read that the Highmountain scenario is the longest and most involved, and that the Nightborne scenario has a scene that dovetails with the Void Elf scenario.

I spent the extra $20 to get the Collector’s Edition because fancy raptor for my Hunter who loves raptors —

— and fancy horse for my Human Mage who loves horses.

Although I could recruit the Highmountain Tauren and roll up the Highmountain Tauren alts I want to create now, I’m going to try to save that until after I’ve gotten all the classes leveled to 110 and experienced their Order Hall campaigns (through getting the last champion from the Broken Shore).

Because I only needed my Nightborne Mage to exist, however, there wasn’t any problem with sending Kaelinda off right away to help Lady Liadrin convince Thalyssra to join the Horde.

She was rather surprised and shocked by how harshly the Regent Lord treated Alleria Windrunner, though she herself was sufficiently well-mannered not to show it.

Kaelinda now has a “prettykitty” mount macro that includes the Mystic Runesaber, Arcanists’s Manasaber, Nightborne Manasaber, Luminous Starseeker, and Winged Guardian.

Thanks to a comment on Wowhead, I learned that I could create an Allied Races character on a realm where I didn’t yet have a level 110, so I was immediately able to create a Nightborne Mage on my Minor Mages realm (I’ll still have to get Kaylynda to 110 to do the Void Elf recruitment scenario, though).

Minor Mages, please welcome Koralythria!


She has pale pink hair (the color is very subtle) and no glowy tattoos (because she’s a commoner).

Koralythria is very young, as Nightborne go — only a hundred or so years old (about the same age as Kaelinda). Before — well, before Gul’dan, really — she was a junior assistant gardener at one of the smallest gardens in Suramar City, dreaming of someday becoming skilled enough to work on the Grand Promenade.

In her free time, she associated with a group of other young (less than a millenium old) people who were curious about the world outside the shield and wondered if there were things their leaders weren’t telling them. After the Legion arrived, she joined the cause of the Dusk Lily and became part of Vanthir’s network as soon as she became aware of them. Though her horticulture work had given her some proficiency with certain types of bladed implements, during the Insurrection, she discovered that she was more talented with magic than she had thought. When she came to Shal’Aran, she was overawed by Thalyssra. She was also rather disturbed and concerned by the Withered… especially by how many of them there seemed to be (so she’s even more of a conspiracy theorist now than she was before). She very quickly began to idolize Valtrois and Occuleth, though.

So… now that I’ve finally finished Suramar, what next?

Xe’ra’s Revisionist History of Illidan, then Argus, with my Demon Hunter — because the more Void Elves I see running around, the more I want to play one.
