Hi,

Since the account wide transmog now is confirmed I was wondering if the BMAH acquired Tier 3 parts will be so too or if there are special rules concerning those items.

The parts bought through BMAH are not class specific meaning every plate user can wield the full Dreadnaught set (just to name an example).

If you have Tier 3 pieces (either from Classic WoW or the Black Market Auction House) then these appearances will be unlocked account-wide within the current transmogrification restrictions.

As an example, let's say that you're playing a Warlock:

  • If you have a piece of the Frostfire Regalia (Mage) set, then this appearance will be unlocked account-wide for all classes that use Cloth as their primary armor type.
  • If you have a piece of the Dreadnaught (Warrior) set, it won't be unlocked account-wide as a Warlock can't equip Plate items.

    Just to clarify that this does indeed only apply to Tier 3 pieces, because these pieces do not have class-restrictions on them. Other Tier sets will be subject to their normal class restrictions.

    No. Only appearances of the primary armor type for that class (Plate) can be unlocked.

    The general rule of thumb for unlocking appearances is:

    • You must be able to equip the armor
    • It must be of your primary armor type
    • It must be able to be obtained and equipped by your class

    I don't see why this would work differently for something else than tier 3, so here's my view :

    If my mage has mage Tier 2 items, then the mage-tier-2 look is unlocked for all clothies ? I strongly disagree with that, sorry, because there are no lookalikes and so far, only mages can have this transmog. Same for paladins, rogues, and many tier sets that remain exclusive to one class ( and other classes only have recolors).

    Other example, which is not different than the tier sets : if my warlock has unlocked MoP challenge mode armor, then this look is available to all clothies ? No thanks.

    The problem is different when there are non-class-set-lookalikes, but I still would prefer that strict rules be enforced : whatever the source of unlocking, you have to be able to use the look yourself to transmog.

    Blizzard, please, please, please put careful thinking on all the unlock / transmog rules, and give us a clear answer of what is or is not possible.


    Just to clarify that this does indeed only apply to Tier 3 pieces, because these pieces do not have class-restrictions on them. Other Tier sets will be subject to their normal class restrictions.

    You're here again. Can you please clarify (since your last post is open to interpretations):

    Can PLATE USERS unlock CLOTH/LEATHER/MAIL tier 3 items?


    No. Only appearances of the primary armor type for that class (Plate) can be unlocked.

    The general rule of thumb for unlocking appearances is:

    • You must be able to equip the armor
    • It must be of your primary armor type
    • It must be able to be obtained and equipped by your class
