We’ve been receiving a lot of questions regarding gear changes and additions in Patch 4.3, so we’ve put together a small FAQ in order to tackle them.
If you have a question regarding gear in Patch 4.3, you’re welcome to submit it by commenting on this post, or by emailing Noelani (contact details on our About page). We’ll do our best to respond to everything (and do our best to answer accurately)!
Are ‘Replica’ items from Darkmoon Faire transmogrifiable?
Will Tier 3 be making a come-back?
“We would like to offer some alternative ways to get favorite items that are no longer available…not every favorite item will be immediately available at launch. But we’ll keep a list of items that get requested by the players and work to get them in someday.”
Numerous threads sprung up with suggestions and Tier 3 featured greatly among the requests. As such, we can’t rule out Tier 3 just yet, it may be a later addition to the feature.
Are Season 3 sets available for purchase again?
Has the availability of Vindicator’s off-set pieces which matched Season 3 changed?
Are the off-set items (Belts/Boots/Bracers) that match Season 1 Gladiator sets available once more?
Why can’t I use my level 60 PvP items (f.ex. Marshal’s & Warlord’s) for transmogrification?
This essentially means that those who own the original sets will never be able to transmogrify them, but the appearance will be available, via the replicas, to those with the appropriate PvP ranks. The issue is rather complicated and has drawn a large amount of criticism, so this system may yet change again. Check this thread for further details.
How do enchanting effects work with transmogrification?
What about the so called ‘absurdities’, which items are exempt from transmogrification?
Among the most queried is the infamous Sandrene’s Invisible Vest (Alliance) / Sandrene’s Invisible Vest (Horde), which is, somewhat unsurprisingly, not a viable look for transmogrification. The various fish weapons are also out of the picture, no doubt to spare people the embarrassment of being double-carp slapped to death in battlegrounds.
We will endeavour to create a Blacklist of un-transmogrifiable items which, even though they adhere to most ‘mogging guidelines, fall at the hurdle of the ‘absurdities rule’. The list will be added to our Transmogrification Rules article when we’ve compiled enough information.
