Please allow The Emperor's New Cape to be used for transmog. I know it is invisible, but as a dual-spec person, it allows me to have one set of transmog with a cape and one without with the added benefit of not requiring me to change my game settings whenever i switch specs.
09/19/2011 06:00 PMPosted by LohidaI've heard people claiming you can only do weapons to another weapon of the same stats type. Like only spellpower swords to spellpower swords and AGI swords to AGI swords. Is that a restriction or no?

09/19/2011 06:11 PMPosted by SolderbergAw, Sandrene's vest is ineligible. That's too bad. I'd wanted to put it on this rogue's chest so she could show off her swashbuckler's shirt. I can see why it'd be off limits, though. I think it's fair. Can't have a bunch of rogues running around topless in Orgrimmar or Goldshire, now can we?

Do you mean Common as in White text or did you mean to say Uncommon for Green?
I had a pair of vendor axes I was hoping to transmog my current ones into, this will not be possible?
Also Forever Lovely Rose should totally be eligible to transmog with, how am I supposed to reach max cuteness now Kaivax?
09/19/2011 08:52 PMPosted by EsjaelThis may have been asked or it may be a silly question...but can a hunter transmogrify an item to look like a mail piece that has intellect on it (as in shaman mail)? Right now I see no reason why I won't be able to; it's mail, and I can equip it if it's not shaman-specific.
Forgive me if this has been answered. You mentioned that heirlooms will be eligible for transmogrification. Does that mean it would retain the look you transformed it into once the item is sent to another character?
Does this mean we will be seeing level 1 Paladins running around with a Reforged Truesilver Champion that looks like a Ashkandi, Greatsword of the Brotherhood?
Mailing removes the transmogrification.

Can you be more specific?
He means items like Stormherald. Weapons and armor that were formerly Armorsmith or Weaponsmith only. I'm not sure if he's asking if they're eligible for transmog or if some equivalent will be added to Darkmoon or something.
Considering they no longer have their "Armorsmith/Weaponsmith only" tags, my guess is if you have one you can transmog it and if you don't it's "tough luck" (like how if you don't have Corrupted Ashbringer already it's "tough luck").
Using an item for transmogrify makes it soulbound.
Mailing an item strips its transmogrification.
How can you mail a soulbound item? Or is it the item that you're copying the image from that becomes soulbound but the item that is getting changed doesn't become soulbound?
Order of things that ruin a lot of the fun of this feature:
1) Item type restriction for weapons. I'd love to be able to transmog a dagger to look like a fist weapon, or sword. In fact, that's the only thing that would make fist weapons (which I happen to love the look of) worth grabbing.
2) Legendary restriction. I don't have any, but it's something I'd like to pick up at some point. I'd hate to go through the work to get a legendary item and them retire it a tier later simply because the stats aren't as good anymore. I'll never bother grabbing glaives or any other legendary item from old content just to dance around Stormwind with it.
The first one is by far the one that makes the least amount of sense. I get not wanting Warriors to be able to dual wield staves, but not allowing any other class to change things up a little that otherwise have one and only one option in front of them most of the time? Meh.
Thanks for the infodump, Kaivax. Lots of useful information to be had. Still, I have quite a few questions on my mind that have yet to be clarified:
1): If we use an item for transmogrification, will it become consumed through the act of transmogrifying it? For instance, if I transmogrify a Tier 2 Helm to a Tier 12 Helm, will I lose the Tier 2 Helm? Furthermore, 2): If we transmogrify an item, will we be able to apply that appearance to another item? For instance, if I apply the same Tier 2 Judgment Helm to a Tier 12 Helm, will I be able to transmogrify the appearance of the Tier 12 Helm (with a Tier 2 appearance) to a Tier 13 Helm, if I were to get it? And finally, 3): Will we be able to revert the transmogrified item back to its original appearance?

• Heirlooms and Account Bound items can be transmogrified.• Mailing an item strips its transmogrification.
