Without a doubt, the best mage set in the game for a Blood Elf (mine is female). Just add
as the weapon, and
(Horde-only) and it is PERFECT.
Obtaining this set will be a bit more time consuming then most other sets and for some items require base item drops as well as items for the transmutation upgrades.
To start off with the "normal" and token items:
Raid token items
Moving on to the rest... The following items require a base item (which drops from a raid boss) and 1
each item to transmute into the end result.
can drop from any boss or trash mob in
Happy hunting :)
This set uses the red-green (no actual official colour name) version of the Sunwell Robe artwork. It forms the complete eight-piece Sunwell Mage set.
There are six other colours of this artwork in the database. Five are available in the game, but not necessarily to all classes. See:
Purple (officially "Black"):
Sunwell Warlock Raiment
Buff-teal (officially "Light"):
Sunwell Priest Vestments
Indigo-purple (officially "Blue PvP"):
Brutal Gladiator's Regalia
Dark purple-brown (officially "Light PvP"):
Brutal Gladiator's Investiture
Dark-tan-red (officially "Black PvP"):
Brutal Gladiator's Dreadgear
The final colour, which is grey, mid-blue and light blue (officially "Blue"), doesn't seem to be available in the game.
If your character is female, there are two shirts that fit the set quite nicely. These are
, which fits the red and golden colors of the set and
which fits the green front of the robe.
As said in a previous comment,
If you're a priest and can't find matching belt,
is perfect. It matches the set quite well. Thank you DeGoudenEeuw, I could not for the life of me find a belt to match it. I don't know why it was down rated but if there's a better belt please post it.
I have put together all the pieces that I think make the most perfect Blood Elf Mage set in the game. There's just no other set where both a weapon and a cape match all eight set pieces so perfectly. I've even included a couple alternate pieces people mentioned, so you can drag those around and look at the differences for yourself.
Full Set of Blood Elf Mage Amazingness
From a graphic designer standpoint, the way I have it set initially is really the best way to have it. The
Drape of Winds
works much better than the
for a few reasons. The Drape of Winds incorporates the perfect amount of green to match with the set, while the Sunglimmer has no green. Also, the large, thick outlines of gold on the Sunglimmer are far too wide and darker-colored to match the gold on the rest of the set.
As far as weapons go, the
Golden Staff of the Sin'dorei
is really the optimal choice. This armor set was based off two pieces of official artwork, seen
. Blizzard always placed that staff with this mage set, and it's pretty hard to argue with their own design choices. However, I also included options in the comparison for you to view in case you get stuck using a
. They're not as perfect as the staff, but they match the set pretty darn well.
for these weapon and cape suggestions!
Anyone know a good set of shoulders to go with this set besides the ones shown? I don't really like the Mesh. Any suggestions?
All cloth wearers should get their hands on the
Cincture of Polarity
. It is my go-to belt when I can't find anything else.
I've found that
match this set VERY well. The only caveat being the fact they're LFR gear. That means once MoP is over, getting them may prove to be quite difficult.
you can buy
Brutal Gladiator's Battle Staff
Brutal Gladiator's War Staff
for 350 honor points. works better than the other staves.
originally found here
These Infernoweave boots go well with the set if you're not a mage.
I was cheap and decided to use
for the belt, and
for shoulders until I can get the transmute. Doesn't do too badly.
matches the same colours , and it fits better than
when i see a female blood elf wear this the song im sexy and i know it starts playing in my head xD
Talon of Azshara
as well as the prievously mentioned
Book of Highbourne Hymns
look great with the set.
As a warlock I like using the
. Even if it's a little more colorful, it still matches the set very well imo.
A nice fitting cloak is
So here I'll give you a wand (
) for 425 honor and 2 one handed maces (
for 780 justice points and
) you can use with this set. I found many swords and daggers in the comments, but I had a mace and later on a wand that couldn't transmog as a priest. The first mace is awesome, the otherone is nice, but I let you know as another option, and the wand is the only one I could find that matched the color palette and had a design worth looking at, and it is not so bad whatsoever. If you don't like it at all, I also found
, but I didn't like it as much.
Please if you find better options let me know.
Besides, if you are not a mage and can't find a matching boot pair, you can use
for 825 honor.
If you can't convince the gloves, the head thing or the shoulders to drop, or just don't completely like them, you can always choose to use
for 591, 935 and 591 justice points respectively until you can get the legitimate set parts, or in search of a different look.
Do you need a certain level of reputation for Yrma to offer you the transmuted parts? At neutral she isn't showing anything, even with the mats on my bag.
If you're looking for a tunic/vest to go with this instead of a robe,
fits this set very well.
matches the boots almost exactly if you aren't a mage. For Alliance, you'll want the Prideful version of these boots
For non-Mage classes who want a complete Transmog the off-pieces from the
Furious Gladiator's Investiture
match nigh perfectly. It's an awful grind but it looks really good.

Anyone have a nice non robe chest that fits with this? I just straight up dislike robes but love the rest of the set... would love it if it looks something like the chestpiece used by the
It sucks that Blizz haven't made their chestpiece an item in the game :(
Warlock? Priest? Cannot buy the belt with token? Worry not, my friend,
on the Isle of Quel'Danas sells
for 48.53 gold. It is not an exact color match, but close enough that you would think the belt makes sense.
If anybody is assembling the set and looking for an alternative to the shoulderpads, I've found the
is a decent looking replacement (Horde Only).
Well now I must farm this set for my Blood Elf mage since Felo'melorn is the fire artifact ! It will be perfect !
Seems like the main 5 pieces aren't unlocked on the entire account when you get them, only for that character that bought them. So if you're wanting the full set, it might take a while.
If you are working on this set, either for collection or the achievement
, and you got any other alts of the same armor specialization, in this case cloth. You can go with them to have an extra chance at the gear for turning in at the vendor to complete it on your, in this case, Mage.
Minor note, unless you got a lot of primals or motes laying around, then do not waste time on trying to craft a
If you're looking for a wand matching this gearset, in my opinion
is a nice choice.
