I'm going to go ahead and theorize that you'll need to put items in void storage to be available for transmorgrification instead of just keeping them in your inventory, but maybe not.

I think whatever price they set for adding and removal will be a good indicator. If it's 100g each way, as in the pictures, I can't see them making you pay that every time you want to transmogrify a piece of gear, on top having to pay for the transmogrification itself.On the other hand, inflation HAS been getting out of hand lately, so I guess it'll depend on how big a gold sink they want this to be...

Would be a bad, bad move."Here, you have to pay to unlock the Void Storage, then pay to deposit an item, then pay for each item you change."That's way beyond gold sink. That's ridiculous.They note that the price "isn't final", but they've said that before about things, and the end price ends up close to what the previews have been.

Well no, I mean that you don't have to have the item in your inventory at all, inserting it into void storage then makes it available for transmogrification. You wouldn't have to withdraw it again. I think it kind of makes sense because Blizzard has always set a high price on "vanity" things. And honestly even if each step was 100g (unlock, deposite, change) that's still just a few dailies and a dungeon run.

"A few dailies and a dungeon run"This feature is meant for people of all levels. You can't expect a level 35 to fork over (say) 300g just to keep the look of a nice item he got.

Why would a level 35 not have enough room to store things in his bank? You shouldn't be having bank problems until you're 85 anyway so who's going to pay the current price of 1000 gold if they can just use the bank for free? It is after all an expensive bank that you use once your normal bank is full.

I know that when I'm leveling toons (which I've been doing with more alts recently) most of what sits in my bank is a handful of gear items I want to keep, either as trophies or whatever, and crafting mats. It's the ore I've farmed but don't need for blacksmithing yet - or the extra leather I've skinned that won't make its way to the AH until it's a full stack. My bank slow fills up - until by time I'm running high-end dungeons and then raids it's closer to being full. The only "problem" I can see for this is for people who artificially set the level cap below 85, like those classic raiders who are level 60 and only do MC/BWL/AQ - they aren't going to have access to a lot of gold - though they aren't going to need to store more than, what, 3 or 4 gear sets in their banks?Most people don't keep every single pair of boots/gloves/etc they've gotten. I know a lot of Paladins who keep every shield they've ever used, or at least all the good looking ones that they've used for more than a few hours. I have more than a whole row in my Paladin's bank - but most people just vendor any/all outgrown gear, other than the ones that have really exceptional graphics.

The Void Storage is for people who want to collect things. I can tell you you can fill your own bank up (maybe not all the extra slots) by 20 if you want, just by keeping the interesting items.

@ArrohanDepends how many toons you have and what their professions are. I have an alt that is a tailor/enchanter and let me tell you, his bank is FULL. Even after I made a couple 36 slot enchanting bags (did help greatly) he's got little room for much else. The worst part is he was in my storage guild for the most part while leveling. Now if this toon was my main and needed room for cooking mats or tabards or whatever else he couldn't do it at all. It would be nice if all your toons could access this so you could eliminate all the extra holiday stuff instead of storing 10 sets of holiday gear and paying for said storage as well. Perhaps they will think of those of us who are altaholics ;)
