Scholarly/Silver Dress Robes


Scholarly Robes/Silver Dress Robes

Armor Type: Cloth – Common
Level Req.: 20 or 45 for the robes, 70 with extras
Source: BoE drop/Vendor
Availability: The Silver Dress is very easily obtained, the Scholarly less so

How to get the set:

The Silver Dress Robes are purchasable from vendors in each of the original six capital cities at a cost of 2.66g. A list of these vendors is available via the item name link above. Note however that this item cannot be transmogrified.

If the level 45 requirement is too high for you or you would like a transmogrifiable option, there is an identical alternative available at level 20, the Scholarly Robes. However, these are from Twilight humanoids in Blackfathom Deeps with a low drop chance, somewhere in the region of 1%.

    Gorestained Garb is the same model.

    One problem with this transmog: Silver Dress Robes cannot be used for transmog, at least not for Priests. I tried yesterday, bought it for a little over 3g, and when I tried to transmog it, I got a message saying that this item cannot be used.

      You’re quite right, the Silver Dress Robes can’t be transmogrified. I noted this in the article, albeit somewhat cryptically: “If… you would like a transmogrifiable option, there is an identical alternative available at level 20, the Scholarly Robes”.

      The reason the Silver Dress Robes are included is that the article pre-dates transmog by about 1 1/2 years, when we were purely roleplay/costume focused. I’ll update the article in an effort to make it more clear that only the Scholarly Robes are transmogrifiable.
