    Diablo 3 Patch 2.1: New Transmog Options are coming soon:

    We’ve got some adjustments to the Transmogrify system on the way, and you should be able to test them out on the PTR at some point in the near(ish) future. There will still be some restrictions in place, but some of the current ones will be lifted. Specifically the class-restricted limitations will be modified to offer a little more freedom.

    I can tell you up front that you won’t be able to Transmogrify your gear to look like another class, but you’ll have more options for your own class-specific gear when all is said and done.

    But what if you want to turn a normal shield into a Crusader shield?
    This should work as long as you do it while playing your Crusader. The shield will default back to its normal appearance if you transfer it to another character, though.

    We especially need more options for 2H flails. 1H flails can be 1H swords/axes/maces, so why can’t 2H flails be 2H swords/axes/maces?
    The current restrictions on weapon transmogrification will still be in place after this change, but I’ll bring this specific situation up at our next meeting.

    Thats good to hear. I will assume my barb can finally transmog Raekors on her gear (also picked this up when I caught part of yesterday’s stream, they said someone had this working internally).
    This is a good example of what will be possible once these changes take place. Currently, players are unable to Transmog gear into the Raekor set, and even in a situation where the original piece of gear in question is a piece of Raekor. However, after the change a Barbarian could alter their gear to look like Raekors, so long as it’s been unlocked as an option. The item would default to its original appearance when transferred to a different class.

    Please for the love all all things holy let us transmog our 2hand flails to other weapon types.
    I’m going to bring this up at our next meeting with the developers and see what they say. There might be technical reasons why this is restricted, but the way it currently works is not very intuitive since 1-handed flails can Transmog into other weapons.

    Any other major Transmog issues you guys want to get off of your chests?

    Also, is Transmog a “love it or hate it” sort of thing? It seems like player profiles I view either have zero or maybe 1 item dyed/transmogged, or else they’ve got EVERYTHING customized. It reminds me of guys in real life who customize their cars. People either have nothing but fuzzy dice hanging from the steering wheel, or one expensive factory option like high performance wheels… or they’ve gone all in and basically turned a junker into a faux-Lamborghini. There’s no in between?
