Legion Transmog Spotlight - UI Video, How Appearances are Unlocked, Wowhead Tools
Transmog is a very popular topic, and after many questions on our Legion UI blog and roundup of Blizzard tweets on transmog, we're taking a closer look at how the system works on the Alpha.
Below is a video from
showing the Wardrobe UI in action.
At the top of the Wardrobe UI, there is a progress bar showing how many appearances for a particular slot you have collected.
The new options shirts, tabards, and weapon illusions are included.
The UI for displaying items is very user-friendly, with image thumbnails of all the various models.
You can only transmog items intended for your armor type, or cosmetic armor.
Mousing over an image thumbnail brings up the name of the transmog item, as well as a list of items with the same appearance. Hit tab to cycle through them.
There are options to preview your character wearing the selected gear, and to create and save outfits.
Shoulders, helms, and capes can be hidden and these preferences are saved in your outfits.
You must currently visit an Ethereal Transmogrifier to change your appearance.
How Appearances Are Unlocked
The following tweet from WarcraftDevs has spurred a lot of discussion:
This is intended to level the playing field among armor types so Plate wearers do not have a distinct advantage in unlocking four times as much transmog as cloth wearers. However, there is some confusion because the Alpha system currently goes by what is equippable, not the above system. As the Alpha is very early on in development, the transmog system does not seem to be fully implemented yet.
did some transmog testing on the Legion Alpha and
wrote up his results
. Here are the conclusions.
a) Only Items that drop from mobs that are equipable are added to the transmog.
b) Quest items are only added if they are equipable. If an quest gives a Cloth Chest Piece, mail legs, or a 2-hand Mace; a mage will only unlock the chest piece. however a Paladin will unlock all 3 items.
c) If a quest reward is spec specific on rewards (leather gear for monks) it will only unlock the items for that spec.
....1) Only caveat are weapons. If a weapon reward is given, it will unlock all weapons that class can use even if it is not for that spec (Windwalker monk reward is polearm or sword; but Mistweaver reward is 1-hand mace or staff; it will unlock all 4)
Some other Wardrobe acquisition information includes:
Tier sets are still class-specific. If you want to look like another class, you must farm up an off-set item (if there is one) without any class restrictions to unlock the appearance. (
Challenge Mode sets are account-wide but limited to characters of the same class (similar to class-specific mounts). (
Appearances from vendor items only appear when they are soulbound and cannot be sold back. (
BoEs must be equipped in order to be added to the wardrobe (
At BlizzCon, it was announced that all eligible rewards from quests you'd previously completed would automatically be added to your Wardrobe collection. As many older quests are not spec-specific, plate wearers are at an advantage when it comes to unlocking rewards currently--perhaps this will be fixed in a future alpha patch.
Legion questing works in a similar fashion--when you choose a reward, the appearances of all other eligible rewards are added to the Wardrobe.
If you are interested in working on your transmog collection before Legion, Wowhead has a lot of tools highlighting our 3D modelviewer and item filters.
