The prices for void storage didn't matter for whether I would use it nearly as much as whether I can transmogrify items from void storage, or if I had to pull them out for each time I want to 'mog something. If I have to pull it out, then there's no real point to void storage for me.

That's why this is a decent gold sink. The prices are not so large that they could only be afforded by the super-rich, but they will take a fair chunk out of the economy. Also, there are only 12 slots capable of transmogging, so besides the costs of the actual transmogrification, the void storage costs for your average raider start at approximately 300g every patch and only increase depending on how many times you upgrade your gear and/or change your mind about your appearance. 300g spread over several months of play time is negligible.

Agreed Hollow, I can't for the life of me figure out why the void "wardrobe closet" can't be used to dress up the look of your present gear. I mean, placing it in void storage already strips it of it's gems and enchants. These items clearly have no other use than their cosmetic use - so why aren't the two systems linked?

I understood that to transmog an item you only need to carry the item whose appearance will change... was i mistaken?I was under the impression that the item whose looks you want to place on some other one, you only needed to own it, not mattering where it was stored.

As it stands right now, you must have the item you want to change equipped and the item you want it to look like in your bags. Not in your bank, and not in Void Storage. I would have been fine with the original prices if I could dump all my old tier sets in it and never take them out. But now, I'm just not sure what I'll use it for.

@Haro - Yea, I'm confused too. I could have sworn that I was able to mog my items, then stick it back in Void Storage, but that was a week ago that I was on the PTR when I did that. They changed it?

Transmogrification is a lot more simplisitic than some of you are trying to make it:1: You must be wearing the piece of gear that is to be changed.2: The item that you want that piece of gear to look like MUST BE IN ONE OF YOUR BAGS at the time of transmogrification. It currently cannot be in your bank, or in void storage.3: After the item is transmogrified, it does not matter what you do with the other piece of gear. You can put it in your bank, in void storage, or even destroy it, and the piece of gear you are wearing will still keep the visual appearance.

@DidaxRight, but...you need to pull the visual appearance gear out of Void Storage every time you get a stat gear upgrade, to re-transmog that slot. Meaning there's no point to storing Transmog gear in Void Storage unless you love to get hammered by charges. I guess what Void Storage is good for is finally convincing me to destroy things like my Holy Mightstone and Light of Elune instead of paying 25g to clear up that space.

The best way for Blizzard to go about Transmog would be for them to not apply the look of the old equipment to each piece of new gear, but to the slot. For example, my rogue finds a cool looking old world dagger. Instead of having to transmog every new dagger I get, I transmog the "dagger slot", so that until I change or remove the transmog state, every new dagger I equip will look like the cool dagger I obtained. The same could be said for my leather gear as well, as having to reapply the transmog effect to every new obtained item seems like overkill when added with all the other costs/hastle.
