New Site Feature: Transmog Set Images for All Races, Comment to Win a Grinning Reaver Mount
2015/04/23 at 10:40 AM
transmog set database
is one of the most popular parts of the site, and we gave it an epic new look!
You can now select what race and gender you want to browse the transmog set images in. Just select your race/gender combination above the gallery on the right-hand side and all sets in the gallery and their tooltips will change appearances. The images now use the updated Warlords models as well.
In addition, you can change the image on a particular set's page by using the menu in Quick Facts.
The default model will be set to your modelviewer preferences under Settings if logged in, and the transmog set pages will remember your previous preferences if you changed the gender/race via the menu.
The transmog set database is a unique part of Wowhead. The sets, which are put together by the staff, group together all matching items in the game. You can also filter the sets by class, tier, armor type, styles and more to narrow down the results.
Learn about all the transmog resources on Wowhead over on our
transmog resource hub
We're giving away 5
to celebrate. Just reply with a link to your favorite set in
Wowhead's transmog set database
to be eligible to win! This giveaway ends Thursday, April 30th.

We love showing personalized information on database pages that's powered via the

pin a Battle.net character
, you'll see a special "Upgrade for" section in Quick Facts when visiting any gear page. This lists the name of the character for whom it is an upgrade and clicking on it takes you to their Profile page. For raid items, which have multiple difficulties on each page, the recommendations specify what difficulty is an upgrade.
This is currently a simple comparison--it does not take into account item variations or recommend trinkets--but we have some more refinements coming to items soon. We're excited about using our Pin feature in a new way!
