5.2 Transmog changes

General Discussion
So I heard a few rumors going around lately for incoming transmog in 5.2

1. Grand Marshal armor will be available for everyone to transmog

2. Possibly Legendaries will be available for transmog to those who have them

3. You can transmog a different type of weapon over another ex. (Mace over a sword)

I was just lookin for some clarifications.

Also I was wondering if it was possible if #3 is true to transmog a sword over a dagger since they have nearly the same animations. Thank you!
If it's for those that have the legendaries does this mean they will become unavailable to obtain for those that don't?
Rumors lol.
While it would be nice, it will be very very unlikely, I doubt the Devs will be this generous, until maybe 2 or 3 expansions down the line

You heard rumors, which typically aren't true. Of the rumors you've heard only the third one has been stated by Blizzard as something they're working on.
2 & 3 were stated by Blizzard yes, the 1st one I haven't heard... did you hear that from a friend?
2 & 3 were stated by Blizzard

Yep.

Transmog of legendary items is still under debate, but is somewhat likely for the future.

The changes that were being discussed back in December seem to have been fully implemented. I've transmogrified a 1h axe into a 1h mace and sword, a 1h sword into a 1h mace and axe, and a 2h sword and axe into maces, plus a 2h axe into a sword and a 2h sword into an axe.

2 & 3 I'm cool with but letting any schmuck off the street mog Grand Marshal gear would be an open handed blow to the visage

That's nice!
Any idea if they'll let Polearms and Staves be cross transmogrified?

This is the only one that can be confirmed going through. It was on GC's twitter that they will be considering the tansmog of two handers that share the same animations as swords maces and axes, but polearms will need to be worked on before they can be considered. However, they hinted at strength and agility pole arms becoming more common.

Apparently, you can't transmogrify polearms to staves or vice versa atm.

Oh. I always wondered why Polearm -> Staff and vice-versa wasn't originally included, because it seemed like out of all weapons that this transfer would be the easiest to complete.

1. i havent heard that one and its going to make a few old school grand marshals rather annoyed.

2. i have heard that the xmog for this will be weapons with similar swing animations

3. i have also heard about this one. not sure how it will happen.... what ever happened to the x-mog vendors that had recolors of legendaries red warglaives would have looked pretty cool.

The Special Snowflake Syndrome is strong with this one.

It's a pointless req that a diminishing group of players even meet let alone use. You say it's a status symbol o what they did back in vanilla. I say big freaking whoop!

Just because you were able to do something 6 years ago doesn't really mean anything does it? You wnt to show off, go get he heroic raid gear, and challenge mode transmog gear. Show that you're not some has-been awesome player, who's only happy trying to hold something to themselves, because they need to feel superior to another player.

Let's take this a step further. I don't even think any paladin that was created as a Horde character cna use their PvP gear for transmog. Why? Because horde didn't have pallys way back then.

Your argument is an open handed blow to the rest of the playerbase.

Actually a lot of rumours about this game turn out to be true, the problem is you don't know for sure until it happens.

Of the 3, one is not a rumour because as you said, they said they are working on it. One of them they said they might do it. One I have never seen them say they would do it and most signs point to no.

lol
I heard a rumor that Furytime would become a god and be the next last expansions raid boss. It could only be a rumor though.
