Shadowlands Legendary Looks Will Not Be Transmoggable

Recommended Posts

51429-torghast-legendary-armor-sets-prev
 

Update: as the clarification below seems to have been somewhat confusing, here's a clarification: you will NOT be able to use the legendary set look AT ALL as transmog on other gear. You will only get to see the 1 piece you actually equip. We won't be seeing the full set as pictured above and below for a while, unless Blizzard change something from the beta til release.

_______________________________________________________________

While we're still in beta, we are also getting very close to the release date of the expansion (14 days close, in fact), so while it's still possible for some things to change, most are also probably locked in. For now, one of these things seems to be the legendary armor set looks, as we most likely won't be able to use them for transmog.

    Uno_dluk on reddit and Portergauge on the official forums have noticed that the legendary item appearances do not pop up in your transmog collection once you craft them (or equip them):

    Source.

    This means you'll only be able to get the looks on the 1 legendary piece you actually equip, as you're wearing them. That is, at least for a while, as different tints of the same armor sets have been datamined, with the "Maw raid" tag, so we'll probably be getting the transmog looks from there at a later point. It's also possible this is still just a bug, but it seems more likely to be intended at this point.

    You can check out the full armor sets that you probably won't be seeing all together for a while in our set preview here, and here's our top pick to make you sad:

    So, as usual in WoW, shoulders prio!

    Uhhh what? Every other piece of gear gets you a transmog appearance when you get it. This doesn't. One could also say it's the OPPOSITE of every other piece of gear in the game. Also, an article can't be clickbait when it's states EXACTLY what is happening in the title.
    - One note, however, it seems the title may be unclear, but that's due to my issues with the wording, to me it still sounds clear but I've seen people reading it differently and I can see how that could happen. I think it's just missing an "onto other gear" at the end to make it more clear, so apologies for the title at least.

    Thankfully we're still in Beta stage, maybe they can lift these restrictions. Same with Covenant armor sets and having to be in that Covenant to use that appearance. IMHO cosmetic side of items should not be "that" restricted so it can motivate players to play more to collect more; Win-Win ^^

    I don't hate this, honestly. As long as they will be transmogable in the next expansion, I can totally see the appeal in saving the (presumably) coolest looks in the game for people actually wearing the according item.

    I'm gambling my efforts on them lifting the covenant restriction near/at the end of the expansion. I can see having it in place until then; it'd be weird having a vampire in the Night Fae, for instance.

    The only thing that give me pause on this is Ion's statement about wanting covenants to be as integral to our characters as our class, which stuck me as just a weird sentiment for something that's only an expansion feature.

    I apologize if I am asking a naive question, but aren't you restricted to equipping one legendary at a time? If that is so, and you are unable to transmog the appearance, wouldn't that mean you would never be able to have the look of the entire set, only one piece at a time?

    This is correct, which is why Blizzard will most likely be adding recolors of this set in a future raid (as noted above, there already is a set like this marked as "Maw raid" - presumably the final raid of the expansion). Also they might, MIGHT allow two legendaries to be used later on.

        As 9.0.5 approaches, we wanted to take a look at just how many players were playing which specs in Mythic Castle Nathria before the patch changes hit. We made some charts for the Warcraft Logs numbers and will be doing them by role, starting with DPS. All of the stats below are based on the past 2 weeks of raids. 
        While we know what the biggest DPS performers are from our weekly check-ins with the Nathria logs, the actual number of players in the raid by spec are close, but look a little different. The most interesting/jarring fact of all on the DPS side is that 4 specs take up more than half of the entire Mythic population:

        Those last few stripes that are so tiny are Frost DK, Assassination, Demonology, Arcane and, of course Survival at the very end. Source: Warcraft Logs.
        The fact that Marksmanship, Fire, Balance and Affliction take up 51% of all DPS specs in Mythic Nathria is a little mind-boggling, especially since performance-wise, those specs don't really stand out that much (aside from Balance, who has reigned supreme for a long time now). Shadow is a particularly interesting case, as it's been at or near the top of the DPS rankings for a long time (it's currently in 3rd spot), and yet its numbers here are pretty low.
        Now let's take a look at the tanks and healers, as their numbers are even more distorted, with some extremely dominant specs. For tanks, Vengenance's domination won't surprise anyone, as it's been the go-to spec for basically all of Shadowlands:

        Source: Warcraft Logs.
        In comparison to the DPS role values, 2 tank specs hold 62% of the population, and 3 come up to 74%.
        We see an extremely similar situation for healers, with 2 specs holding 55%, with the bottom two barely breaking 15%.

        Source: Warcraft Logs.
        The biggest takeaway here is in the DPS department, where the numbers don't necessarily conform to the DPS rankings, although the specs that have been generally in the top for a longer time are more represented, as you'd imagine. The dominance of so few specs, however, is a little staggering, especially when looking at tanks and healers.  We can only hope 9.0.5 and its later hotfixes can address these specs, so perhaps some significant buffs would help there.

        The Mythic+ premade group finder gets a lot of use, and the more frustrated players get with it, the weirder the descriptions of the groups get, so we're taking a look at the funny, creepy and one truly perfect one.
        The first one we're taking a look at is your basic reverse psychology move, with some interesting math on top:

        Found by: NORATHEDESTROYER.
        Then we're on to something similar, although a little weirder, with this (hopefully) satiric post:

        Found by: Dasquare22.
        And now here's something... new, really weird and pretty creepy (with the added bonus of many boost group reports in the chat log, which has become a default part of the premade group finding experience):

        Found by: Galind_Halithel.
        This next one isn't really about the description, but two of the groups on the list, and the piece is titled "Ships in the night":

        Found by: AKeeneyedguy.
        But we saved the best for last, with probably the most accurate description and the most successful way to find good group members:

        Found by: sentenza63.

        You've probably/definitely run across some similarly hilarious or weird ones in your time with the group finder, so post them below if you remember what they said!

        The third Torghast bonus event will become available next week. It's called Unbridled Darkness and turns your screen pitch black for short periods of time.
        Essentially, your first Anima Power grants you a vial of darkness that you can activate. Using it turns your screen completely dark every 5 kills, and you cannot see your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage, healing, and movement speed are increased. The effect dissipates after you kill more than 5 enemies. It is important to note that you cannot enter or leave the darkness manually.
        This is how it looks like in the game when you don't see a thing. For that reason, Unbridled Darkness is also referred to as "Demon Hunter Simulator."

        Here are some spells associated with the event:
        Uncontrolled Darkness - Darkness envelops you every 5 kills, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 150% and your movement speed in increased by 50%. This effect is only removed when you kill 5 more enemies. You will NOT be able to enter or leave the darkness manually. Darkness Rising - Darkness envelops you every 5 kills, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 150% and your movement speed in increased by 50%. This effect is only removed when you kill 5 more enemies. You will NOT be able to enter or leave the darkness manually. Darkness Fading - Darkness envelops you every 5 kills, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 150% and your movement speed in increased by 50%. This effect is only removed when you kill 5 more enemies. You will NOT be able to enter or leave the darkness manually. Vial of Unbridled Darkness - Release the darkness for 15 sec, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 75% and your movement speed in increased by 30%. 90 sec cooldown. Flask of Unbridled Darkness - Release the darkness for 30 sec, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 75% and your movement speed in increased by 30%. 60 sec cooldown. Certain Anima Powers empower Unbridled Darkness in various ways, and we list them all below.
        Unbridled Darkness Anima Powers
        Censer of Suffocating Shadows - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, release a wave of magic every 1 sec, inflicting [ 100% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage to enemies within 10 yds. Tollar's Dancing Garments - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you have 25% increased dodge chance. Form of Darkness - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, killing an enemy unit extends its duration by 5 sec. Unbridled Darkness is automatically removed from you while out of combat. Wild Flail of Tollar - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you lash out at the nearest enemy OR player within 5 yds every 2 sec, inflicting [ 400% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage. Globule of Cloying Darkness - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you have 20% increased mastery and 20% increased critical strike chance. Tollar's Hidden Flask of Fortification - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, your maximum health is increased by 40%. Weight of Darkness - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you gather 100% increased Phantasma. Sands of Desperation - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, your time flows 30% faster. Oddly Intangible Key - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you take 30% less damage from area of effect attacks. Tollar's Willful Blinder - The duration of your Unbridled Darkness is increased by 5 sec. Huddled Carvings - Your damage done is increased by 100% if you and an ally within 5 yds are both under the effects of Unbridled Darkness. Harvester of Shadows - If you and an ally within 5 yds are both under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you heal for 15% of your maximum health every 1 sec. Writhing Shadow-Tendrils - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, your attacks have a chance to cause a dark explosion and inflict [ 200% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage as well as blind enemies within 5 yds of your target for 6 sec. The bonus event does not offer any special rewards, and you can opt out of it by selecting an Anima Power unrelated to Unbridled Darkness at the beginning of each run.

        For some odd reason, a player received a Corrupted Item from the Stockades while leveling, even though the system has been removed from the game in the Shadowlands pre-patch.
        Argoniek received a Corrupted Item (Standard Issue Prisoner Shoes) while leveling their character through a dungeon, which is weird, as Corrupted Items never dropped for low-level characters in the first place. Here's an image the player shared on Reddit.

        Fortunately, the item lacked any Corrupted Effects, according to the player. Just imagine the chaos that would ensue with Corruption Effects on leveling gear!

        With Mythic+ becoming much more relevant and presumably many more players heading in/returning to the dungeons next week with patch 9.0.5, this video going through some important interrupts for all the Shadowlands dungeons is especially useful!
        Interrupting is one of those anger and conflict-breeding things in dungeons, as fights often break out over a player or players (usually DPS) not doing enough of it, and then because of that there can be many spammed interrupts on 1 ability in response, so it's especially important to know what spells and abilities should be focused on. Tactyks goes through all 8 dungeons and said key interrupt targets:   If you want to prepare for next week's Valor Point system and new gear grind even more, you can also check out our Mythic+ dungeon rankings, weekly routes and specific class tips as well.
