Common Problems

  • I reached 2k rating in BFA Season 1 but I don't have the appearances
  • I got the 2k Elite achievement in Legion but cannot buy the PVP appearances
  • I had the Warlords Elite set and deleted it, I want to restore it for transmog

Elite gear appearances are automatically added to your collection as soon as you earn the necessary rating and the associated achievement.

Rank/AchievementRatingAppearance unlocked
Combatant1400Wrist and Waist
Challenger1600Hands, Legs, Feet
Rival1800Head, Shoulder, Chest

If you have the achievement(s) for the season, you should have the appearances unlocked and you should be able to use it for transmogrification.

Note: When checking the Appearances tab, be sure you check the Items tab (not the Sets tab) and be sure your filter is set to Collected. The Elite appearances are not tracked in the Sets tab, are only tracked as individual pieces.

Appearances from Previous Seasons

Once a season ends, it is no longer possible to earn the appearances for that season for the rest of that expansion. With the beginning of the next expansion, we may make appearances available again for Marks of Honor.

Battle for Azeroth

Elite Gladiator and Aspirant appearances can be purchased with Marks of Honor from Xander Silberman in Zuldazar and Marshal Gabriel in Boralus.


Elite appearances from Legion seasons were not automatically unlocked by the achievements. The achievements simply allowed you to purchase the items or appearances at the vendor. If you have the achievements but not the appearances, it means you never purchased the appearances.

You may obtain the Legion Elite appearances by purchasing the Ensembles from Sarah the Savage or Captain Roberts for Marks of Honor. Ensembles do not include Cloaks and Tabards; these items and their appearances became permanently unobtainable.

To be able to purchase the Ensembles, you must have the relevant Elite achievement. While the Elite achievement is account wide, the character buying the Ensembles must have earned the required rating.

Customer Support cannot help with granting Legion appearances.

Mists of Pandaria and Warlords of Draenor

Because the Transmogrification system was introduced in Legion, any Elite appearances from Pandaria or Warlords seasons can only be obtained by having kept the original physical items in your inventory or bank until after Legion launched. If you used to have any Elite gear but you vendored it before the Transmogrification system, it is not possible to obtain these appearances anymore by any means.

Customer Support cannot help with granting Pandaria or Warlords appearances.
