I've been wondering something about faction changing and how it affects items, but I haven't seen the information in Blizzard's FAQ or anywhere else online. What happens to faction-specific items that the Armory doesn't recognize as faction-specific? (I know that an Ironforge Smasher turns into a Grimhorn Crusher.)My 67 mage that I abandoned after switching faction and server, she has the Totemic Staff equipped, which only comes from a Horde quest. What happens if I made her Alliance? Would she keep her Totemic Staff or get something different?

Well... my former BE rogue (now human) had all of her Tranquillen faction items intact after the faction switch.... but didn't (of course) have the faction to use them).But these, of course, have no Alliance equivalent. I wonder if former Draenei who went horde would keep their Tabard of the Hand?

@ zyrinx:I dont think you will be able to do that. The portal is there because accounts without Burning Crusade expansion cannot go there. I know it sounds weird but i am sure there are many accounts without expansions (for example my young nephew has one, he is happily leveling his cow and happy to reach lvl25). I will buy him exp when he finally gets to lvl60 (after 9 months still at lvl25 :).I think that Catalicism will have an effect on those areas, but the portal wont vanish.
