Transmogrification

Weapon restrictions and class identity World of Warcraft has weapon restrictions built into its class system. Over the years, it’s changed and relaxed some — Rogues didn’t used to be able to use axes, for example. However, Legion introducing Artifacts in a way reversed that. Even if you can still equip axes on your Rogue, you’re not going to be thanks...

A quick guide to WoW’s Trial of Style One of the most anticipated micro-holidays just arrived in World of Warcraft, and it’s inspiring both transmog addicts and non-addicts to take a shot at earning first place and earn the glory of knowing you look fine as fel. If you’re not sure you want to enter, not sure how to enter, or just feel...




Are you prepared for the Trial of Style? Transmog addicts rejoice — the Trial of Style is making its debut in World of Warcraft today! The Trial isn’t your usual mini-holiday, it’s a full fledged event that runs through Monday and includes in-game prizes. Transmog prizes, of course, purely cosmetic rewards. Compete against your fellow players to create beautiful transmogs and earn enough...

Patch 7.3 brings Violet Spellwing, other mounts, pets, and transmog items Patch 7.3 has a lot of new stuff coming that players would likely be interested in — new mounts, pets, and even a few items for transmog hunters. Wowhead has the datamining reveals for all this amazing stuff, like the Violet Spellwing mount (a long-sought player favorite) and as soon as I drop a spoiler...

đź”’ How transmog saved the World of Warcraft Transmog has kept me playing WoW even while I'm having personal reasons to play less. I can't make a raid schedule reliably anymore, I neither have the time nor the ability. But I can transmog whenever I want, however I want. And that kind of flexibility is something that the game has always desperately needed.

What would get you to do that thing you hate? It’s no secret that I don’t like PvP in WoW and I haven’t since the Burning Crusade days. But I’ve been doing more of it in Legion. The thing is, I’ve simultaneously realized it’s the people I dislike (the ones who can’t stop ranting in obscenity-laden tirades when we’re one flag cap down in Warsong...




What motivates you to run old content? If I were going to be honest I’d admit up front that I haul my alts through older content for a variety of reasons. A solid half of the time it’s for transmog, and then the rest of the time is divided between enjoying feeling overpowered by blowing up old raid bosses, and because my...

What would you like added to the transmogrification system? We’re getting sets in patch 7.2, which is pretty great. The addition of the Wardrobe in Legion was a huge leap forward for transmog as well. Generally speaking it’s never been a better time to be a transmog fiend. But there’s always room for improvement, and so I ask you what innovations would you add...



Will you check out the 7.2 PTR? I’ve been on the PTR for patch 7.2 a bit this weekend, testing out things like the tweaks to the transmog system and the Demon Invasion systems. The transmog changes are still a bit wonky, some sets aren’t there at all and it didn’t import any of my transmog gear that I didn’t still have in...

Do you still run old content? I don’t need anything in Ulduar. I also don’t need anything in ICC, or in Trial of the Crusader. I don’t need anything in any Vanilla dungeon. I don’t need drops from most BC raids or dungeons. My transmog collection has pretty much every look I want from everything up to Cataclysm and I’m at...

What are your little obsessions? I like my gear to match. It’s very hard for me to put together an off-set transmog because of it. If the colors are off on the gear, I notice. The mog in the header image is off and it makes me crazy. (I’m also not thrilled with the belly shirt, for that matter.) I’ll...

What kind of transmog do you love? I love transmogrification in World of Warcraft. One of the reasons I like it is that I can look incredibly silly, if I so choose. The mog pictured above is a matching set of old green mail pieces, the Combat Mail set. There’s a gold recolor of it, but I prefer this version. It’s very...

How important is personalization to you? Both Overwacth and Heroes of the Storm have variant skins for their heroes. Hearthstone has card backs and even some variants like Alleria, Magni and so on. World of Warcraft has transmogrification, as does Diablo 3. At the heart of it, these are all ways to personalize your game, to make yourself a little distinct...

Breakfast Topic: The next transmogrification What could Blizzard add to World of Warcraft that could be a feature which you could utterly sink into, or utterly disregard? Something that could add value to the game for some players, while not being compulsory at all? Something like Pet Battles or transmogrification in terms of impact, something with a lot of depth...

A guide to transmogrification in Legion The Wardrobe is will be here on July 19 when patch 7.0 launches. Really, all the other changes in patch 7.0 are nice — new talents, class changes, the pre-Legion invasion event — but for me, the freedom from clutter in my bags is going to be wondrous. I’ll go from playing with maybe six...

Arcane Sanctum: Keeping busy until Legion The most exciting news this week is that since we last spoke, we have a release date for Legion! Now we know what we’re dealing with in terms of wait time, for those of us who aren’t in the alpha and haven’t seen new content in awhile. By the time you’re reading this, there’s about...
