Patch 5.0.4 Changes


In the lead up to Mists of Pandaria, Patch 5.0.4 will soon be upon us, with changes aplenty. The patch notes have been circulating for quite some time, but let’s take a closer look at how transmogrification will be affected specifically.

Items

  Weapon slots are being changed. For all classes except hunters, the ranged slot is being removed,
     which means no more relics and thrown weapons.
  Hunters, on the other hand, will now have a single weapon slot in which to use their
     bow/crossbow/gun. Their ranged weapons will receive a stat boost to compensate for the loss of
     the old “stat sticks”, and will no longer have a minimum range.
  Hunters can still equip polearms, staves and swords etc., but they won’t be able to do so at the
     same time as wearing a ranged weapon. Gone are the days of melee hunter weapons!
  Wands are becoming main hand weapons and will receive stat boosts to bring them in line with
     other caster main hands.
  All main hand fist weapons will become one-handed, allowing greater freedom when transmogrifying.
  Current Valor and Conquest Point purchases will be made available for Justice and Honor Points
     respectively.

Currency

  With 5.0.4, Valor Points will be converted to
     Justice Points, Conquest Points will be
     converted to Honor Points. Valor and
     Conquest will not be obtainable again until
     Mists of Pandaria.
  You won’t be able to earn any further
     Justice or Honor Points if the currency
     conversion puts your total above 4000.
  You will be able to carry up to 4000 Justice
     and 4000 Honor Points with you into Mists of
     Pandaria.
  Points above 4000 will be converted to silver:
     35s per Honor Point and 47s per Justice
     Point.

Other Relevant Details

  Whilst there’s no absolute confirmation, patch 5.0.4 on the PTR does have the new versions of
     Scholomance and Scarlet Monastery, which implies the new versions will be released on live this
     week. You’d best get busy if you still want any items from the old versions of the instances, as many
     items are seemingly being removed.
     See our article on The Future of Scholomance & Scarlet Monastery.
  AoE looting is being introduced, a god-send for the farming-inclined transmogrification fan.
  Head enchants are being removed which, whilst not directly related to transmog, is still worthy of
     note.

      It depends on what class you are. If you’re a hunter then transmogrifying ranged weapons should work as normal. For all other classes guns, bows and crossbows are removed.

  3. […] highlighted in our earlier post, Patch 5.0.4 Changes, wands will be available as main hand weapons to all cloth wearers, following this week’s […]

    You should also note that all main-hand fist weapons are becoming one-hand fist weapons, even old ones. This means more fist weapon joy for transmog!
