Patch 4.3 might be coming sooner than we think, with this past week’s torrent of information about the upcoming content, Dragon Soul. With it comes transmogrification, a new in-game system designed to let players have some flexibility and customization options when it comes to what armor they are wearing. Your stats will stay the same, but the look of your items can be changed over and over again. I’m a big fan of transmogrification and enjoy throwing together new armor sets and outfits in anticipation of this new feature.
Is there a way to make cataloging, wish-listing, and creating outfits even easier? Oh, you bet there is, through the wonderful world of addons. This week’s workhorse is MogIt, your one-stop shop for creating outfits and checking out what gear looks like, creating a wishlist of gear to collect, and more. If you’re nuts for transmogrification, then MogIt needs to be in your addon arsenal.
MogIt is an in-game reference for uncommon, rare, and epic items, showing you drop locations, what each piece looks like, and what other pieces match by approximate color. Putting together outfits for transmogrification has never been easier, especially with the color sorting feature. Every armor piece and weapon currently available for in-game acquisition is included in the addon, grouped together by similar model and expansion. You can filter items based on level, approximate color, which faction can obtain them, source, and even slot.
Since MogIt shows you in-game items on character models (and lots of them at once), you would assume the addon takes up a huge chunk of CPU and memory usage. Well, there are two saving graces that MogIt presents. First, you’re not going to be using MogIt during raids or dungeons because really, don’t you have something more important to be dealing with? (No, you don’t.) Second, each set of armor and weapons are contained in a separate mini-addon that is loaded on demand when you are looking for specific types of weapons and armor. MogIt is my favorite type of addon — modular.
Wishlists and drop locations
Have you been reading this Addon Spotlight and still yet waiting for the killer feature to get you to run out and immediately download MogIt? Here is the killer feature — wishlists. Every character you have has a separate wishlist that you can add items to straight from the item browser. All you have to do is right-click any armor or weapon and it is automatically added to your wishlist, which is located in the top drop-down box. I fell in love with wishlists back with AtlasLoot, and now I’ve got an even better resource for transmog. When I hit the Auction House to look for new pieces on my wishlist, it is easy to add those items to the Auction House search bar.
Hovering over any item also shows your its drop location, making it easy to locate pieces and not have to go to Wowhead all the time. I love Wowhead, but it can get time-consuming to alt-tab out of WoW, type up your stuff, and find it, when you could have just hovered over the piece. There is an included URL to Wowhead, however, just in case you want to read comments about an item, etc.
Personally, MogIt is my new life-saver. I’m going to be all over transmogrification in patch 4.3, and there is no way I’m going in alone. MogIt is my little buddy, helping me every step of the way to fashion dominance. It’s a no-brainer addon for anyone looking to put together some cool outfits.
