Transmogrification Changes in Legion

Recommended Posts

14588-transmogrification-changes-in-legi

Legion is bringing some huge changes to the way we can alter the appearances of our gear. Find out what's planned and what you can do to prepare!

 

In today's article we're going to be giving you a quick run-down of the new system of transmogrification, as well as the best ways you can prepare to give yourself a head-start in hunting for new items. Let's get down to the fashion!

 

Diablo-style Wardrobe System

 

Blizzard is going to be introducing a wardrobe system very similar to that of Diablo 3; if you have an item in your inventory, bank or void storage, you will have that look added to your wardrobe. You can then check the UI and pick that look as part of your transmogrification set.

The new system will allow you to preview certain items even if you don't have them, as well as fill in the gaps in your favourite transmogrification sets. 

 

Transmogrification "Outfits"

 

Just as players can save their gear sets within the equipment manager, Blizzard are now introducing the concept of outfits. This will allow players to save their sets so that they can easily swap them around, as well as linking them to players as a single item. This means other players can try on your outfit, as well as draw up a list of potential items they might want to get their hands on.

New Transmogrification Slots

 

With the new wardrobe system, we are going to see new slots available for transmogrification, notably Tabards, Weapon Enchants and Shirts. Blizzard is yet to confirm whether or not limited-time pieces can be added to the wardrobe, such as Gladiator tabards and the bloody enchants from achieving a certain rating in PvP.

What about the items I can't obtain anymore?

 

Many of you are most likely taking a look at this and wishing you had been wiser in choosing your quest rewards when levelling up. Fear not!

 

Blizzard has hinted that they will be automatically adding every quest reward to the player's wardrobe as long as they have completed the quest itself.

 

They are yet to reveal whether or not they will be introducing items that have been discontinued from the game, such as specific items from older expansions, like the inv_axe_02.jpgHigh Warlord's Cleaver.

 

Can I transmogrify legendaries and artifacts?

 

So far, there has been no mention of being able to transmogrify into legendaries and I see no reason for them to change it. The legendaries have a very specific appearance that Blizzard want to stay unique.

 

In regards to artifacts, players can transmogrify away from the artifact look if they wish to do so, but cannot make another weapon look like an artifact. 

 

Can we finally use common items to transmogrify?

 

It looks like Blizzard is finally coming round to this idea; many of the common items that were previously off-limits for transmogrification are now being made into "cosmetic" items. Are you ready to fight the Legion wearing your monocle and tuxedo? Let's make it a reality!

How can I prepare for Legion transmogrification?

 

Here are some of the main ways I would recommend to prepare:

  • Make sure you get a Level 3 Salvage Yard on one of your characters. Stockpile the cases until Legion comes out and then mass-open them. You'll find yourself with a crazy number of Bind-on-Equip items.
  • Start doing some simple dungeon and raid runs to grab yourself the main tier sets you might be interested in.
  • If you're not interested in transmogrification, but you do like making gold, stockpile some of the rarer world drop items. Their value will sky-rocket as soon as Legion releases.

I am very excited they are stream lining how transmog will work. Hope they put more leeway into it, am happy that some looks I couldnt use on other toons before are coming available at least.

I love this new system. since I have plenty of alts I do have a lot of bank space but it is already full of "old" content transmog sets. I am hoping the salvage yard won't be nerfed because I can always go back there with the garrison heartstone and pick up a few missions and get the crates.

 

I only heard they are nerfing the gold missions but not other missions that are suppose to drop crates.

Ahh sooo excited about this new system! My banks and bags are so full of transmog sets it's getting out of hand lol. So why exactly should we wait until Legion to open our salvage crates?

Does anyone know how this will work for cross-faction or for toons that aren't high enough for transmogged gear (ie: teir 13 on a fresh toon)? Or how this would work for toons that haven't completed the quests, but one of your alts have? Also, do you have to equip the item if it's BoE or does just looting it give you the transmog ability?

 

Sorry for so many questions. I know a lot of them can't be answered yet, but one can always hope.  =)

So excited for the newley free space! My void storage and half of my bank are FULL of gear for various transmog sets (I may have a slight obsession) but no longer. Yey Legion! And so glad about the common items addition, white dresses fore everyone!

And it's so perfect that they're integrating quest items from everywhere. No better way to remember those days hunting around Elwynn Forest and Westfall than a transom straight out of them wub.png

That's great news. I know I have binned alot of items before there even was transmog idea. And I would certainly love if the monocle became cosmetic item. I kept it on my cloth wearers, but would love to have it on my hunter as well!
Also, I've deleted my salvage yard for Storage, god damn it, I've never thought to leave it and stock on the crates!!

I can't wait for Legion to free up all the bag space on all of my alts, the gold from vendoring all the xmog gear is great too!

 
Unless I'm blind, I didn't see anywhere that we get to free up our bag space?

 

if you have an item in your inventory, bank or void storage, you will have that look added to your wardrobe. You can then check the UI and pick that look as part of your transmogrification set.

Seems to me you actually have to have that item in you bank/void storage or bags. Am I wrong? I mean I would love to be wrong, moggy items take up loads of space ;p But then again, what would be the point of void storage?

I love what they're doing with the new transmog system in Legion. There's going to be so much more free bag space now! Not to mention going back to do old quests to collect for transmog. It's going to be fun!

If it works just like the Diablo 3 system, you only have to loot the item.  Gear currently in your bags and bank should count as a fresh loot once the xpac goes live.  After the wardrobe system (or whatever you want to call it) registers that you have the gear, you should then be able to do whatever you want with the gear in your bank and bags.  Disenchant, vendor, whatever.  Unless there's a significant difference from the D3 system, that is why many people are happy about freeing bag space.

Greetings Icy-veins. I'm excited for loads of things, that is true. But to be honest I am kind of scared as well, since there is a lot to be done wrong in this expansion. Artifact weapons truly look good and have some nice traits, but personally i would ask how are we going to develop them in next patches and what will happen to them in the end of Legion.


 


Also i am excited for the PvE concept. There are 10 dungeons and I've seen few of them in YT previews and such. They look really nice and have really nice design, but what i would be again scared of is the scaling and the difficulty in heroic or challenge modes.


 


PvP concept is really looking nice with the small amount of information i have, but again, question is, how will the gear, talents and prestige work? I really look forward to it.


 


And last point: Lore... This is one thing I am really looking forward to and what interests me probably the most. We have a chance to see new and old characters and also we could have a chance to encounter or at least get some more info on Old Gods. Scaling system looks also really amazing. Since I am an alt person, i love to get all classes on max lvl, so this would allow me to progress the Broken Isles in any way i want. But again the negatives... I am really worried about the length (in hours) of each zone in Broken Isles. Some sources say that one zone only takes about one and half hour to complete which is too fast, but that is my personal opinion.


 


I know this was supposed to be "Why i am hyped for Legion" comment. But I just can't write all positives, without leaving out possible negatives, which are important. To me chance to get into beta of Legion is the chance to test the game and point out the bugs and glitches made in the game and help in one way or another improve the game for normal players, rather then play it as one. I will have a chance to do that when it launches.

Oh, I've no idea that's how it works in D3. That indeed would be sweet.

      Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello!
      Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
      Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
      Thank you very much!

      Our preview of Patch 8.3 continues with a first look at racial abilities of the upcoming Allied Races.
      Mechagnome Racials
      Mechagnomes have two active abilities available at level 24. The first one allows you to summon clones to distract enemies and the second one allows you to open locked chests and doors that require Lockpicking.
      Hyper Organic Light Originator - Summon Organic Light duplicates to distract your foes. (Instant, 3 min cooldown) Skeleton Pinkie - Allows opening of locked chests and doors that require a skill level of up to 600. (1.5 min cooldown) As a Mechagnome, your limbs work as a Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. You have a self-heal at your disposal, which heals you for a fifth of your total health whenever you fall below 20% health. The final passive racial passive gradually increases your primary stat (Int/Str/Agi) by 50 every 5 seconds, up to a maximum of 400 when fighting the same target.
      The following racial passives are available to Mechagnomes:
      Combat Analysis - You gather and analyze combat data every 5 sec, increasing your primary stat by 50, stacking up to 8 times. The data decays while out of combat. Mastercraft - You function as a personal Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. In addition, your limbs include every profession tool. [NYI] Re-Arm - When you fall below 20% health, heal for 20% of your maximum health. This effect cannot occur more than once every 2.5 min. Languages - Common, Gnomish. Vulpera Racials
      Active abilities embrace the scavenger/camping fantasy of the Vulpera. You can set up a camp and return back on a 1-hour cooldown. Next, you have a bag of tricks, used to heal your allies or deal damage to enemies.
      Bag of Tricks - Pull your chosen trick from the bag and use it on target enemy or ally. Enemies take 14 damage, while allies are healed for 28. (Instant, 1.5 min cooldown) Rummage Your Bag - Change the contents of your Bag of Tricks. Now where did you put that...? [NYI] (5 sec cast, 5 min cooldown) Make Camp - Make a camp at this location. Can only be used outdoors. (5 sec cast) The racial creates a camp with fire, a tent and an explosive backpack at your location. You can use Return to Camp as your secondary Hearthstone on a 60-minute cooldown to return back. The camp is visible for others for five minutes and then disappears.

      Return to Camp - Return to your camp. (10 sec cast, 60 min cooldown) When used, there's a short cutscene with a caravan transporting you back to your camp starts playing.

      Passive abilities include a Fire damage reduction by 1%, 5% damage reduction when you first take an enemy hit, and you can find additional bags of goods whenever you kill a humanoid.
      The following racial passives are available to the Vulpera:
      Fire Resistance - Reduces Fire damage taken by 1%. Nose For Trouble - When you first take damage from an enemy, reduce that damage by 5% of your maximum health. Vulpera Survival Kit - You have a chance to find an additional satchel of goods when you kill a humanoid. Languages - Orcish, Vulpera. Other Patch 8.3 Content:

      Ny'alotha Allseer is a N'Zoth-themed mount added to the game in Patch 8.3. It is rewarded from a quest and could very well be the end-of-expansion reward for everyone, who defeats N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty before the next expansion, similar to Legion's Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal.

      Here's a preview of Leather sets that will drop in Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid in Visions of N'Zoth.
      Currently, there's some clipping going on with the belt which will be hopefully fixed in future builds.

      Last week, Blizzard added Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren along with encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine to the game. In this week's PTR build, four Death Knight Swords have been added.
      If Allied Races and the Pandaren will indeed be able to become Death Knights in Patch 8.3, it would make perfect sense to revamp the starting zone, because the current one is outdated now that Bolvar is the Lich King.
      Blizzard added four Ebon Blade swords to the game on 8.3 PTR that will likely be rewarded to new Death Knights created in Visions of N'Zoth as part of the overhauled starting experience.
