Today I bring you a very early blog this morning, in an attempt to give you an excellent warning, regarding any alts or maybe your main, that you may have created before the release of Cataclysm, that may have some old shirts either equipped or stored in your bank.
As you’ll be aware by now, in a couple of days (July 19th to be exact), the Legion pre-patch will finally be going live, and this will bring the long-awaited Transmog Wardrobe. As well as the ability to change the look of your Weapons and Armor, you’ll also have the ability to learn those shirts, Tabards you’ve collected over time. However, there are some lovely shirts out there, most that are unobtainable any longer and these may be equipped on old alts or stored in personal banks.
Now is the best time to quickly log in to all of your alts and quickly check whether they have any rare shirts equipped. If they don’t, fear not, check your bank too. Remember, we’re explicitly looking for rare shirts that were starting shirts before the release of Cataclysm. Below I’ve added a list of the rare starter shirts.
Brawler’s Harness, Footpad’s Shirt, Initiate’s Shirt, Lookout’s Tunic, Primitive Mantle, Primitive Mantle, Recruit’s Shirt, Recruit’s Shirt, Rugged Trapper’s Shirt, Scout’s Shirt, Squire’s Shirt, Squire’s Shirt, Thug Shirt, Trapper’s Shirt, Trapper’s Shirt, Warder’s Shirt
When checking the Auction House for shirts, be aware and cautious for shirts that may look rare, but are not! The shirts to be wary of are available from a vendor called Thomas Yance in Old Hillsbrad Foothills. I’ve added his shirts below.
Be sure not to buy these off the Auction House; many people will be looking to profit from those unsure of these shirts. The obvious trick is putting the Squire’s Shirt on the Auction House and trick buyers, as this looks very similar to Squire’s Shirt, but both are different!
If you have no interest in using any of these rare shirts, MAKE SURE THEY’RE NOT EQUIPPED PRIOR TO PRE-PATCH as they’ll become soulbound on the 19th! un-equip them and place them in your bag and get them on the Auction House asap. Most have a guide price from 50k upwards according to Wowhead, but they could easily demand a higher price, due to them no longer available. Don’t be scared to price them very high at the start of the Legion Pre-Patch and if you get no buyers, feel free to reduce the price slowly. Alternatively, do what I’m doing and leave them as high as possible, as you’ll get a completionist sooner or later, the price will only go up as they become rarer as others get learned.
Hope this helps, have fun and see you in Legion!
