4.3 Gear FAQ

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?

Yes they are, we tested it out in-game. They’re also BoE and not class specific, so you can use multiple characters to speed up your collecting process, and can buy/sell them.


Will Tier 3 be making a come-back?

Sadly not, or at least not yet. When Transmogrification was first announced, Kaivax commented with the following statement,

“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?

Yes, Season 3 armor and weapons were re-introduced in 4.3, after more than 3 years absence. All of them can be purchased with Honor Points, from Kezzik the Striker in Area 52, Netherstorm. The head, chest and legs cost 1000 honor each, the shoulders and gloves 750.


Has the availability of Vindicator’s off-set pieces which matched Season 3 changed?

Vindicator’s pieces still are only available by trading in Tier 6 tokens on the Isle of Quel’Danas. They’re not currently available for honor, unlike the extras from Seasons 2 & 4.


Are the off-set items (Belts/Boots/Bracers) that match Season 1 Gladiator sets available once more?

They haven’t been added back into the game yet, and there’s no evidence to suggest if and when they might return.


Why can’t I use my level 60 PvP items (f.ex. Marshal’s & Warlord’s) for transmogrification?

It was recently announced by Bashiok that level 60 PvP sets are un-transmogrifiable. Instead, replica versions of these items have been added to vendors in Area 52, which will only be transmogrifiable by characters that have obtained the feats of strength for the Legionnaire/Knight-Captain ranks and higher, from the old PvP system.

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?

Transmogrification will normally apply the enchant glow of your equipped weapon onto your chosen weapon appearance. The exception to this is if the source weapon, the one which is supplying the visual appearance, has a passive glow/effect on it before having been enchanted.


What about the so called ‘absurdities’, which items are exempt from transmogrification?

We’ve already found a considerable amount of items which cannot be transmogrified under the ‘silly’ or ‘absurd’ category, and there are no doubt many more which we don’t yet know about.

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.

To the disappointment of many, the Forever Lovely Rose and the other, more gruesome headpiece from the ‘Love is in the Air’ festival, Vile Fumigator’s Mask, are both un-transmogrifiable.

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.

Prepare for Darkmoon Faire


Darkmoon Faire is getting a serious revamp in Patch 4.3 and today we got our first glimpse of what’s to come, as the Faire was opened for testing on the PTR.

We took the time to explore the monthly event in its new location and find out about the items on offer from Darkmoon vendors.
Here’s our guide to the new gear:

*Spoiler Alert!*

The updated Faire is littered with an array of new pets, mounts and a few token Darkmoon themed armor pieces for you to get your hands on, but the highlight from a transmogrification standpoint is without doubt the introduction of ‘Replica’ items.

2005 is back in Style

Replicas are BoE, stat-less, non-class-specific items which are exact visual copies of old armor sets, namely Dungeon Sets 1 & 2 aka Tiers 0 & 0.5, formerly from Blackrock Spire, Stratholme and Scholomance, which haven’t been obtainable by players since Cataclysm was released.

Sold by Barum and Baruma, a pair of Dark Iron Dwarves on Darkmoon Island, the new home of the Faire, Replicas retain the rare and epic qualities of the armor they are based on, so they can be transmogrified. For example, Replica Magister’s Robes and Replica Sorcerer’s Robes are identical to the chests from the original Mage Dungeon Sets 1 and 2, minus any combat stats.

Replicas, along with the other goods from the Faire, can be purchased with Darkmoon Prize Tickets which can be gathered through a variety of profession-based quests and mini games connected to Darkmoon Island. The total cost of each 8-piece set is 520 Tickets, broken down into 75 each for Heads, Shoulders, Chests and Legs, and 55 per Bracers, Gloves, Belts and Boots.

How long will it take to collect a set?

Right now is it difficult to say with certainty how long it will take to gather a full set, as it depends heavily on how lucky you are with finding Darkmoon Artifacts, but given that the Faire will only be active one week per month, we can draw some conclusions about how many tickets you can obtain from quests per event.
The five mini games (essentially daily quests) award 1 Ticket each per day, 35 over the course of a week. Primary profession quests add 8 and secondary professions 12 per week. There is also a weekly quest, Test Your Strength, which awards 10 tickets. The Darkmoon Artifacts are drops which trigger quests awarding between 5 and 15 tickets each, but the required items are seemingly rare, so we can’t provide any concrete information about those just yet.

Discounting the latter source, you can obtain 5 tickets per day, 20 per week if you have all professions, plus 10 from ‘Test Your Strength’. This adds up to 55 per Faire, in other words, per month, for the standard quests given at the Faire. If you’re able to find all of the artifacts, they add up to 80 tickets per month, bringing the total to 135. At this rate, it’d take four months for one character to collect an entire set, but it’s worth noting that, as the items are BoE, those who have alt characters will be able to speed up this process greatly!

We’ll keep the article updated as more information becomes available and when the Wowhead database is brought up to speed.
