Classic PVP Gear for Transmogrification

*UPDATE*
You must have rank Knight Captain(A)/Legionnaire(H) or higher to buy the classic PVP level 60 sets from the Area 52 vendors. Otherwise the items are locked. The classic PVP items are purchased with gold ~100G for a 5 piece set.

There is also a vendor who sells level 70 Gladiator, Merciless and Vengeful gear for honor points ~ 4500HP for a 5 piece set. You do not have to have a PVP rank/title to buy or transmog the Gladiator sets. You can also buy respective lvl 70 weapons for honor as well. I confirm it is possible to transmog the level 70 gear. I tried a piece from each gladiator set with success on toons with and without a PVP rank/title.

The Gladiator pieces are very nice alternatives to the classic PVP gear for those seeking the look of earlier sets.

Hope this helps clarify the PVP transmogrification issues we are all experiencing.

See you on the battlefield.

***



Classic PVP gear (level 60) can be used for Transmogrification. Go to Outland --> Netherstorm --> Area 52 and you can buy classic gear and weapons from the goblin vendors. The classic items do not list set bonuses, but this is the gear to use for transmogrification. I am not sure if there is a requirement of Officer rank Knight(A)/Stone Guard(H) or higher, but this solution worked for my main, rank Commander.

It looks awesome. I am so happy! (^_^)

Is that a Gold or Honor purchase?

And is this gear available to those who have the old titles/achievements/etc. or are the items available for everyone- and can everyone transmog with them?

THAT is the issue, and I hope it is resolved so Transmogate will go away and we can get on with our game.

The items are only available for people who have a classic rank. At the moment it seems you need an officer's rank. As a Knight-Captain I was able to purchase and transmog the Marshal's/Field Marshal's set.

I was happy, but it's still a dumb restriction.

You are correct. When i try to click on the gear, it says its locked.

It can be purchased with gold though but its locked out.

Yeah figured as much. This was such an unneeded and unnecessary restriction. It really isn't fair to the people who didn't start in Vanilla or doesn't like to PvP or does like to PvP just not RBG's.

The gear from the vendor, the stuff that requires the rank, is the ONLY stuff that can be mogged. Existing honor items, NO ONE can mog those.

Lots of people on non blizzard boards have said that during the PTR if you would mog your gear to look like HWL/GM and faction change you could have an orc in Alliance gear or a human in Horde gear...

If THAT is the reason for the exclusing, tell us! Admit you have an issue with the code and either fix it or let us do it, how many people are going to pay for 2 transfers every time they get a new set of armor?

"Oh uh, new pants, gotta pay $50 to transfer to alliance and back!"

Not going to happen.

There was no issue. I knew about this along time now that they planned on only letting people with the rank get it.

Again, there hasn't been a single blue response about people that have switched accounts to do RAF or server transfer to play with friends. You're just screwed when it can easily be fixed. Make the new rating system allow access.

It's not enough that they have the title but they need a special set of gear to fully be a special snowflake. Blizz just recolor the stuff and put it out for everyone. Everyone can transmog the gear we want the the special snowflakes can still feel special and walk around thinking anyone cares.

lol me snowflake you scrub :) The length of time it took to get the gear is why bliz did this. The time you nubs spend to get the rbg mounts wouldn't even be enough to get rank 14 underwear.

So let me throw something out there... Why cant blizzard put this "feat of strength" as an account based. I have 3 toons ranks 10+ from vanilla wow played on Kel thuzad where it took hour upon hour and week after week of playing to get anywhere in the ranks because it was such a high pop server. Now I never played my rogue in bgs much just world pvp thats why I had a rogue ganking in blackrock stormwind ironforge was more fun than sitting in bgs so he was my "your team isnt on to roll face for ranks so go gank poor people class" Well I dont play my drood warrior or shaman anymore so what do their feat of strengths do for me nothing...

I want to play with lvl 60 pvp gear on my rogue blizzard I put my time in the old system and beat my head against my desk every week I came just short of my next rank playing 8 hours a day...

What are we counting 6 years now since vanilla. How many people still play that toon they pvp farmed on prob not many.
