    [Transmog Guide] How to become a Blood Knight

    Hello folks, my name is Drakesong / Ghostsong, Blood Knight enthusiast and fan of the Blood elven lore.
    Ever since TBC, like many paladins out there, I've been fascinated by the Blood Knight order. For those of you that don't know, the Blood knights are a blood elven version of the Human's silver hand, draenei's vindicators or tauren's sunwalker, with their own lore. Thanks to that, when TBC I created a Blood elf paladin in order to become a blood knight, thanks to the transmog system, the blood elves can be blood knights once again (or can they?).

    I decided to create a guide of all the possible sets / gear pieces a player can put together in order to create a perfect blood knoght set.
    First of all, I consider a "blood knight gear" any gear used by NPCs who have the blood knight / blood lord title (eg: Sunfury Blood Knight), <tag>, or even iconic blood knight items, such as shield or tabard. Fell free to think different an consider the gear used by any blood knight paladin npc as "blood knight gear", but keep in mind that this is not my goal. So, let's star the guide, shall we?

    Pre-TBC Blood Knight

    When the blood Elves were first announced as a playable race, a few images of the blood elves paladins were showed to the players. Even tho there are blood knight wearing this set in current wow, i believe it's interesting to share this information, let's take a look:

    Head - nothing
    Shoulder - http://www.wowhead.com/item=16953
    Chest - http://www.wowhead.com/item=16958
    Back - http://www.wowhead.com/item=21697 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=40353
    Tabard - nothing
    Waist - http://www.wowhead.com/item=16952
    Legs - http://www.wowhead.com/item=16954
    Gloves - http://www.wowhead.com/item=16956
    Feet - http://www.wowhead.com/item=16957
    Weapon - http://www.wowhead.com/item=94103

    Original Blood Knight

    This is the most popular Blood Knight set, the one that you see in most of the Blood knights out there. It's also the hardest one to get, let's take a look:

    Sets: http://www.wowhead.com/transmog-set=1100 or http://www.wowhead.com/transmog-set=1102

    In order to get both sets, you must PvP in RBGs and reach a certain rank (I believe 7). Let me say that I find it's sad that the most iconic blood knight set can only be achieved by hardcore pvping. But, let's take a look at some armor pieces a few NPCs wear and other options of gear that share the same models / colors:

    Head: http://www.wowhead.com/item=29937 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=32083
    Shoulders: http://www.wowhead.com/item=11605 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=24988 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=27725 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=19695
    Chest - http://www.wowhead.com/item=25819 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=29337
    Back - http://www.wowhead.com/item=29382 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=34810 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=31201 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=49792
    Tabard - http://www.wowhead.com/item=25549
    Hands - http://www.wowhead.com/item=29134
    Waist - http://www.wowhead.com/item=27644 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=27639 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=31315 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=33331 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=94087 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=21503
    Legs - http://www.wowhead.com/item=27653 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=27654
    Feet - there is no available item
    Weapons - any weapon. If using a shield this is the perfect choice http://www.wowhead.com/item=27449 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=30986

    Newbie Blood Knight

    While you are leveling up in Quel'thalas, you will notice a few low level blood knights wearing a different kind of gear:

    Head - nothing
    Shoulders - http://www.wowhead.com/item=21683
    Chest - http://www.wowhead.com/item=31765
    Tabard - http://www.wowhead.com/item=25549
    Back - Nothing
    Waist - http://www.wowhead.com/item=21503
    Hands - Not available in game, but the best choice for replacement, imho is http://www.wowhead.com/item=78303 , but feel free to look for other models
    Legs - http://www.wowhead.com/item=31794 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=18861
    Feet - The original boots are not available in game, but this one matches pretty well http://www.wowhead.com/item=21704
    Weapon - any of choice

    Eclipsion Blood Knight

    Head - Nothing or http://www.wowhead.com/item=34795
    Shoulder - not avaiable
    Chest - not avaiable
    Back - http://www.wowhead.com/item=29382 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=34810
    Tabard - http://www.wowhead.com/item=31404
    Hands - not avaiable
    Waist - http://www.wowhead.com/item=36299
    Legs - not avaiable
    Feet - not avaiable
    Weapon - http://www.wowhead.com/item=25464

    Sunfury Eradicator

    Even tho they don't have "blood knight" in their names, they wear the BK tabard, so I believe it's important to share their transmog with you:

    Head: Nothing
    Shoulder: http://www.wowhead.com/item=19695
    Chest: http://www.wowhead.com/item=19693
    Tabard: http://www.wowhead.com/item=25549
    Back: http://www.wowhead.com/item=29382 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=34810
    Hand: Not available
    Waist: Not available
    Legs: http://www.wowhead.com/item=31298 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=19694 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=28175
    Feet: Not available

    Darkfallen Blood Knight

    Not only Blood elf paladins can be blood knights, but also Death Knights! That's right, there are some npcs in ICC called Darkfallen Blood Knight, but keep in mind that it will take some time to get the entire set, let's take a look:

    Head - (optional) http://www.wowhead.com/item=50060
    Shoulders - http://www.wowhead.com/item=49980 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=51824
    Back - nothing
    tabard - nothing
    Chest - http://www.wowhead.com/item=50969 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=51861 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=50027
    Hands - http://www.wowhead.com/item=50976 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=49995 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=51886
    Waist - http://www.wowhead.com/item=50989 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=50451 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=51836 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=50010
    Legs - http://www.wowhead.com/item=49902 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=50199 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=51928
    Feet - http://www.wowhead.com/item=49905 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=51931 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=50416 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=54586 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=53487
    Weapon - The original weapon (http://www.wowhead.com/item=47516) is not available anymore, but there is hope it will someday be available again. While we wait, there are 2 weapons who can fit the transmog http://www.wowhead.com/item=48023 or http://www.wowhead.com/item=47884

    So this is it, I hope you liked my little guide as much as I like to help fellow Blood Knights out there. I'll try to keep this updated when new gear comes out!

    Thank you, I'm not american, so spelling errors are a little bit common.
    Screenshots, hmm, good idea!

    I think for that shield, the best weapon would be "Blackguard":


    It's a blacksmith item, so it's relatively easy to get. Not sure how long it would take to get the reagents for it, but shouldn't be TOO hard... maybe a bit long.

    But overall these look good! Shame the PvP sets aren't available.. (I think..)
