Mog Madness – Round One: Elune-Adore

This is my entry into round one of Mog Madness, the transmogrification contest being hosted by J.D Kenada, Effy and Ancient.

Of all my characters, the one whose personality is the most defined in my mind has to be Erinys. She might currently be languishing in Orgrimmar as a Bloodelf but at heart she is a Priestess of the Moon. I intend to faction transfer her to back to her roots during MoP and so I thought for round one I’d put together a home-coming ensemble.

The starting point for this outfit was a Mooncloth robe. This to me is the quintessential Nightelf Priestess robe and I still have memories of crafting my original one. It was the first WoW item that I had to work towards creating, everything I had before that point, was either from a quest reward, off the AH or from a dungeon.

I always imagined that going through the process of first visiting Dire Maul to buy the recipe of a Shen’dralar and then having to farm satyrs must have been hard for a Nightelf. Then having to take the tainted and disgusting fel cloth to a moonwell to purify it in the waters, to produce light from the darkness and weave it into a robe. The very creation of the garment echoes the story of it’s wearer.

The shoulders and helm were straightforward choices. I wanted something to accent the cerulean blue of the detailing on the robe and both seemed like perfect fits. The gloves were a little harder but in the end I decided to play on the gold of the shoulders.

Elune light your path“.

The off-hand was an easy choice, signifying both her own unshakable and unswerving faith in Elune but also the role she fulfils in Nightelf society. It doesn’t matter how dark the road ahead appears, she believes that her path is lit by the Goddess and in turn tries to provide that light in the darkness to others.


May the stars guide you“.

The wand too was an obvious choice, a crescent moon symbolising her belief in the Moon Goddess which blossoms every so often into a burst of stars. When MoP is released and wands become off-hand options for casters, this would be my main-hand choice.

I wanted to create something which showed her personality, that combination of (blind) faith in the Goddess as well as dedication to her calling.  With the simple colour palette, the symbols of her religion (the lamp and the wand) and of course the halo, I’m happy with the result.

  1. Her outfit really does personify the concept of a Priestess of Elune to me, lovely.

  2. Mooncloth robe is such a beautiful robe, so elegant and wise. And Elunish, as Tome says.

  3. This looks so perfect for a Priest.

    I’ve been wanting to put something together for my Priest with a Mooncloth robe, but she doesn’t have anything suitable handy. I may have to get a party going so that she can visit BWL and get those shoulders since they work very nicely with the outfit.

    • Thanks. I wish you luck in the farming process should you decide to go ahead. Priest loot and BWL always sucked for me :P

  4. That is absolutely luminous! I love, love, love the wand and off-hand you’ve chosen — they complement the robe so perfectly.

  5. Mooncloth robe is really iconic. Loved the off-hand!

  6. [...] Just thing to complement a Priestess of Elune look (outfit details can be found here). [...]
