Patch 5.3: Transmog to be available from bank and void storage

If you're a fan of mogging whose bags are already full to bursting, then MMO-Champion brings good news: in patch 5.3, you'll be able to transmogrify using items that are currently in the bank or void storage. The ability is actually already in the game for void storage, but there's no UI elements that let you access it. However, anyone wanting to get ahead of the curve can download the VoidTransmog addon, and transmogrify away without the bother of actually pulling your items out of storage.

While it's a small change, we're sure transmog fans will appreciate the convenience of this tweak. Of course, patch 5.3 is still far on the horizon and it's likely that eager transmogrifiers will be waiting on this for quite a while.

Breakfast Topic: Would you be caught dead looking like this?

Breakfast Topic Would you be caught dead looking like this
Would you be caught dead in this outfit? Apparently, the answer is emphatically a yes for Rubedo of Draenor (US). With his rather flavorful mog, Rubedo seems willing not only to be caught dead but also to be caught in public and caught with his pants down. "That's uh, quite an outfit," remarked an admiring Community Manager Daxxarri about Rubedo's flamboyant outfit. "The socks with sandals are a nice touch."

Personally, I love Rubedo's game sense of humor, but not everyone can pull off such a look. Check out this Darkmoon Faire-esque look on Mathryn of Wyrmrest Accord. There's nothing overtly goofy about it, but I'm afraid my main would feel foolish questing and doing business in town looking like a carnie. I'd wear it in a heartbeat on the right alt, but wearing something this offbeat on a full-time basis feels awkward to me.

How far are you willing to take your daily mog? Do you want an look that lends your character dignity or deepens your immersion, or are you more interested in poking a bit of fun at the whole thing? How silly do things have to get before you start feeling a little ridiculous?

Patch 5.1: Transmogrify your cloak with your guild reputation cloaks

Patch 51 Transmogrify your cloak with your guild tabard
Many people think their cloaks are ugly. Blizzard acknowledges this by allowing players to turn the display of their cloaks off. Now in patch 5.1, cloaks can be mogged to look like the cloaks awarded via guild reputation. This change is not included in the patch notes, but game designer Dave Maldonado tweeted the news.
Patch 51 Transmogrify your cloak with your guild tabard
Do you have a cloak you're going to mog into your guild tabard? If so, which cloak?

Editor's Note: Post contents updated for accuracy. This new feature uses guild reputation rewards in transmogrification.

The man who gave away 1,000,000 gold

Since the launch of patch 4.3, transmogrification has been big business for players on the Auction House. But it's a hard market to get a logical handle on, like building an empire on selling classic oil paintings or finely aged wines. How do you know what a piece of gear is worth based on looks alone? How can you make money by dealing, essentially, in random world drops?

Instead of muddling through the topic myself, I decided it would be smarter to go straight to the expert. No one knows more about making money in the transmogrification market than Keelhaul of Proudmoore (US) -- or as he's affectionately known around the internet, the Mogfather. His goal was simple: Prove that the transmogrification gear market was profitable. Forty-five days and 1 million gold later, it's safe to say his point has been successfully proven.

But if you think banking a million gold in 45 days is remarkable, wait until you hear what he did next: He gave it all away.
