Last year, we examined the curious possibilities of the remarkable Potion of Illusion
, introduced in Cataclysm
and hailed for its potential as a tool for amusement and mayhem. Potions of Illusion were my guild's go-to ingredient in what were otherwise boring waits for raiding to start, and my guild thoroughly enjoyed playing around and seeing what different kinds of effects we could mimic. Although the days of Cataclysm
are over, the Potion of Illusion still has its uses. And in Mists of Pandaria
, the possibilities have opened just a little wider due to the introduction of a glyph that works hand-in-hand with the Potion of Illusion.
, rogues were given the Glyph of Disguise
. This minor glyph allows rogues to copy the appearance of an enemy, simply by pickpocketing it. Sadly, the Glyph does have its limits -- rogues can no longer pickpocket Durn the Hungerer, a source of endless hours of amusement in beta -- but that doesn't mean the glyph is devoid of all fun. In fact, there are plenty of cool mobs out there in the world, waiting to be mimicked.
