There’s been another update to how Transmogrification will work. A question repeatedly asked has been whether or not legendary items found before the expansion and pre-xpack patch (referred to as legacy items) will unlock their appearances in the Mystic’s Transmog menu.
Vaeflare has necro’d an old thread with some clarification to something that I thought had been clarified but perhaps other’s felt it was still uncertain.
We’ve already mentioned that Legacy items (items that drop before the expansion or pre-expansion patch goes live) will not unlock unique item appearance, but they can be Transmogrified.
At this point, we’re currently planning that unidentified legacy Legendaries will also not provide new item appearances for Transmogrification. Our reasoning is this: even old Legendaries will be following new rules once we release Loot 2.0 and we want Transmogrification to reflect what new items you’ve gotten after that point.
Anything different would have been cheesy. No one disagrees with that right? Of course not. So don’t bother saving up your unidentified legendaries too add to your Transmog menu.
