I'm wondering what "transmogrification" and "void storage" is. Transmogrification sounds like some kind of new profession.

Transmogrification is shape changing. Presumably, he's a barber Npc.

Transmogrifying is generally a change in appearance; perhaps we will finally be able to change the look of items? It would make sense to put the NPC for that next to the NPC for changing stats.Perhaps Void Storage is long term storage for old armor sets, etc.? Perhaps with a gold-based fee for deposit/withdrawal? (These *are* ethereals, after all, who are like goblins in their commerce-drivenness.)It would be kind of cool if the Consortium were to show up as active allies again.

Wasn't there data mining a while back in regards to changing the colors of armor with dyes, etc? Maybe this is it...

Transmogrification is like shapeshifting.My idea of Transmogrification is that it's permanent which makes me think that it's a way to race change in game. My guess, this is more Premium content and blizzard will expect money to open the door the gives you access to these npcs.

Oooorrr... If they do introduce updated player models, this could be how we get the option to either update or keep the one we already have. They said before that one of their concerns about doing this was that people would not want to be forced into having their toon suddenly look completely different.

This screeny is proof that someone in Blizzard is a big Calvin and Hobbes fan, for I think the author, Bill Watterson was the first person to use that word in one of his cartoons about the mad wee boy and his pet stuffed tiger.Who grew up to be Jack and Tyler Durden.

@Thomas Higgins:Not to take anything away from Bill Watterson, (whom I really like...) but "transmogrify" is a real word, dating back to the 1600's.

Oh shit...What if transmogrification lets you change one item to look like another item?ARE WE FINALLY GETTING AN "APPEARANCE TAB"?!*cough* *choke* *hack*

Crap, missed, like, the other millions of posts where people drew that conclusion. Got too excited. :X

@loop_not_definedI hate to get my hopes up again, but if transmogrification is a way to change the look of items... well, I may just cry.If they made it a microtransaction or something like that, I would also cry. But they'd be wholly different tears...

@ Daedalus. Ooops! I must admit though that it was reading Calvin and Hobbes that I first read it and thought "transmogrification" was Watterson's creation, like "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" was created for Mary Poppins.

I think transmogrification will be the ability to change your face, skin color, piercings, and the like. The things you can't change at the barber.

For some reason, the "Void Storage" reminded me of a Voidwalker, and not any void an Ethereal would be involved with. The NPC beside him makes me think it's the NPC to change your minions sex back and forth.But there are more appropriate NPC's to base that on, instead of Ethereals.
