Kirin Tor Mage


Kirin Tor Mage

Armor Type: Cloth
Level Req.: 70
Source: BoE world drops, tailoring, vendors
Availability: Easy to get

How to get the set:
The fundamental parts of this outfit, the robe, hat and tabard, are very easy to obtain; the former being crafted by tailors of 135+ skill, as a vendor trained recipe, the latter two are vendor purchases from Dalaran. The only hitch is that the tabard requires Kirin Tor – Friendly reputation to buy, which means that your character would have to be of Northrend level in order to get the appropriate reputation gain.

There is one exception to this, however, all mages automatically start at level 1 as friendly with the Kirin Tor. As such, if a mage is able to get to Dalaran, they can buy the tabard at any time.

Both the shoulders and belt are BoE world drops, which means you may have some issues finding them. The best option is to frequently scan the Auction House and keep your fingers crossed, but other purple and yellow themed items can fill the part if you’re not so lucky.

    I have a better look-alike on a level 29 mage that I kept as my banker.

    He has almost the same gear, but better looking shoulders, check the Elder Wizard’s Mantle

    I also have something else for the waist, (can’t remember the name now) but is similar looking and has a light blue gem on it.

      I’m not sure I understand, the Elder Wizard’s mantle requires level 51, but you’re 29? But anyways, there are many alternatives for shoulders that match the set, fx also Mystical Mantle, which looks like Elder Wizard’s mantle, but might be easier to get.
      We decided to keep this article fairly simple, but Kirina has made a great article showing off many viable sets if you want emulate Kirin Tor affiliation:

    Hi! I love all of your sets but I wanted to let you know that the Violet Hat is not able to be transmoged. I just re-read it and realized you probably didn’t mean for these sets to be transmoged. So if that is the case then this will let others know like me who try to transmog it! 🙂

    • Noelani says:

      The majority of outfits in the “Characters” section are not transmogrifiable, and as you rightly pointed out, were never intended to be transmogged. In this case, the article was written several months before transmogrification was even announced.

      Here are some transmogrifiable versions of the hat for you, both are BoE world drops:
      Darkmist Wizard Hat
      Regal Wizard Hat

        Thank you so much! I wasn’t even expecting to find a hat that I could use! It’s good that I mentioned I was not sure if it was supposed to be all transmogged.
