That's why I think is better to make a compilation of everything that was posted these days...
Since Transmogrification is a crazy word, an abbreviation was quickly found for it: mogging
What is mogging all about?
It's a way to customize the look of your armor/weapons gear and make it look the way you like. Of course, like anything around, there are some limitations and some restrictions for this.
Where can I transmogrify my items?
In both Orgrimmar and Stormwind new Ethereals NPCs are going to be available to help you mogging items. Most likely guards will show you the way to them if you ask nicely.
What's the price of it?
First of all, every time you mogg a piece of gear you'll have to pay for that. Currently, based on the Blizzard pictures an entire set of 8 pieces of gear costs around 150g.
Do we have to mogg entire sets?
No. You'll be able to change gear piece by piece. So if you like various tier pieces and you think they will look good together you'll be able to mix them.
What are the limitations?
I think a list of limitations would be in order...
- Basically, we'll be able to use only items that have stats.
- You can change the look of your items only into items that you'd be able to wear.
- You can not change the type of the items. For example you wont be able to change plate into cloth or maces into swords. But - lucky hunters - guns, bows and crossbows will be the exception to this rule.
- The changes are not limited to tier items.
- You'll have to own every item piece you want to use for mogging. If you owned it before and deleted it you'll have to farm that item again.
- Silly looking items, even if they have stats, most likely are not going to be available for the mogging process.
Will I be able to change the items back?
Yes, like reforging, you'll be able to undo the look of any item.
How is this going to work for legendary and BoA items?
The legendary weapons are going to remain unique so everyone can notice them. You wont be able to use any legendary item in the transmogrification process.
How can we get the removed gear items?
Currently Blizzard plans to make the "no longer available" obtainable in the future, but not all of it will be available at once. DK starter gear and Dungeon sets are the ones most of the people are taking about. There might be a vendor for the missing gear of the gear you once owned.
How is transmogrification going to affect the items?
The BoE items will become soulbounded and the purchased items are going to be nonrefundable after you used them for mogging.
What's the Void Storage?
The Void Storage is another bank, to put it simple, where you can store items that you use extremely rare: old pieces of armor, some crazy looking weapon... stuff like that.
It should be known that this storage is like the banks and works per character not per account.
Plus, you wont have to use the storage to be able to transmogrify an item.
Where is this new void storage?
In both Orgrimmar and Stormwind new Ethereals NPCs are going to be available to help you access the storage. Most likely guards will show you the way to them.
What's the price for storing the items in there?
Nothing is sure yet. I think Blizzard will announce the real price later on. Seems like you'll pay every time you store and withdraw items from this storage.
Multiple items could be added or removed at once. The fee will be per item and will add up.
What's the size of the Void Storage?
There are 80 slots available for the moment. But since this feature is very far from live realms, I think this might be changed.
What we can and we can not store in there?
Any items can be stored as in armors, weapons, heirlooms or some strange vanity items you own. Even tabards (except the ones that can not become soulbound) can be stored in here.
We wont be able to store consumables, profession items, tradeskill items, regents, pets and mounts.
The Void Storage is going to affect my items?
Yes it will. Any item placed in Void Storage will be stripped of all its enhancements, including enchants, gems, sockets, and reforged stats. This is not a place to store current Raiding gear or PvP sets you are using at the moment. You have the bank for that.
Hopefully I didn't forget anything and most of the known info about these two new features were added.
Do you think anything important was missed? What do you think about these features? Are you going to use any of them? How's your character going to look after mogging?
