Dragging an Item on Your Portrait Equips It

Recommended Posts

Here's one from the "I was today years old when I found out" series! Did you know dragging items on the character portrait equips them?

While the vast majority equips items simply by right-clicking the icon, there's another quite unusual way to equip items. The interesting fact was brought up by Reddit user Inouji who shows us how an item is equipped by dragging it on the character portrait.

At a second glance I don't think it stupid, but in a way clever! For you don't need to open the Character-Menu to equip the item, thus sparing a step!

If this is worth changing a years long habit, or not, everyone must decide for himself. I at least am too idle for that! 😉

and right-clicking doesn't work now? cause that would be quicker to equip it...

I am pretty sure it does and always worked like that..

I never understand adding something when something else already there works......faster.

It's been there for a long time, just not something one would intuitively think of tbh.

Hmmm, cause just right clicking tends to be faster? i tend to go with the fastest option in these type of things and i didn't even know dragging the item into your portrait puts the item on, either way, right clicking is faster.

Right-clicking on the Item ist indeed the fastest way of equipping! As long as one hasn't bind another action to the right mousebutton!

For example, the "show unit menu"^^

Plus the fact that you can drag items out of your backpack to destroy them, really makes it counterintuitive to drag a piece of gear you want to equip out of your backpack

      The Great Vault in Dragonflight is located in Valdrakken. Find out the exact location and item level of rewards in Season 1!
      Great Vault Location in Dragonflight
      While the system is not available for testing on the Beta, the Dragonflight weekly chest is located in Valdrakken, the new hub in Thaldraszus. The Great Vault can be found in the Bank area with the entrance at 55.52 57.23.

      Enter the bank and turn right. Here's another shot with coords and an exact map location.

      The Dragonflight weekly chest is themed after the dragonflights.

      You can purchase Tuskarr-themed backpacks in Azure Span in Dragonflight.
      A single item costs 400 Dragon Isles Supplies, a currency gained from assisting friendly factions of the Dragon Isles in their fight against the Primalists. You must reach a certain Renown rank to buy the backpacks. 
      The items can be purchased from Tiktukk (28.67 34.32) in Azure Span.

      Merithra, Ysera's daughter, has a new Visage Form in the Dragonflight expansion and it turns out it's not her but Ysera depicted in the loading screen.
      In the Dragonflight loading screen, we see the four dragon aspects, namely Alexstrasza, Nozdormu, Kalecgos, and Ysera, not her daughter Merithra as I had initially anticipated.

      Merithra has a Night Elf Visage Form in the Dragonflight expansion, which does not line up with the Elf we see on the Dragonflight loading screen.


      You can read more about Ysera in Dragonflight here. Please note the post contains major spoilers that were not available for testing on the Beta because Blizzard most likely wants to hide portions of the story from players, just like they did with Calia Menethil.
      Back in August, we covered a mysterious empty area on the map of the Dragon Isles. For further reading on Ysera in Dragonflight, you may also want to read the following post.

      You can unlock transmog ensembles for your alts in Dragonflight even if you can't use that armor type, but this does seem to be currently limited to Dragonflight ensembles.
      MrGM discovered that you can unlock transmog ensembles for your alts on a single character. Let's say you main a Priest (Cloth Wearer), but would like a Dragonflight ensemble for your Death Knight (Plate Wearer). With the new change, your Priest can buy and learn the Death Knight ensemble (set appearance) and your Death Knight can wear it.
      Placeholder for tweet 1573326601122717699 However, the change does not appear to retroactively apply to older ensembles.
