It's a gift for the 13th birthday of WoW.
Item is tied to 13th WoW anniversary. As Horde character you can get it for 200 timewrap badges from
in Orgrimmar during event.
Elton John approved.
Timeless, so age don't count in the booth!
in order to tmog it account wide you need to deal away with refund timer.
Tmog it to bind it son!
It seems this item is not cross faction (mog). May have been a bug or something, but once I logged on my horde character on another server, it didn't have the mog option. I had to buy it again. Thankfully you also get 200 timewalking whatevers as a gift (the exact cost of the glasses).
I then tired to log on characters on other servers, they all have it. So it seems it's just a faction thing.
I purchased this item on my Druid and was immediately able to use it on my Shaman. Confirmed that it is indeed not bound to one armor set or character, it is account wide!
If you're interested in walking through Stormwind and having folks turn their heads, asking "was that Elton John?" then these are the shades for you!
Can anybody confirm whether or not this will be transmoggable after the event ends?
I jumped on my lvl1 bank alt and these DO show up as moggable even at that level, however there are no greens to transmog at that level.
Though, once you reach a level that can get greens, you can have a stylish look all the way to 110
It just occoured to me that lvl1 characters can start with heirlooms (been a while since I've leveled) and they are transmoggable too! So now you CAN be stylish from lvl1!
Do you have to keep the item to keep the appearance collection?
Facts about this item
These are cosmetic gold and red sunglasses that can be transmogrified by any gear type.
They are sold for 200
in Stormwind, and
The transmog is account wide, and have been confirmed to be event-only (because heaven forbid we get a real reward for the anniversary)
These shades are a recolor of
, however, unlike the Rhinestone Sunglasses these are transmogable.
These glasses are available during the
event, which runs from November 16th to November 30th. However, it's safe to assume that they will be available during later WoW anniversary events, like
, which was the reward for the 12th anniversary.
Bravo, Blizzard, Bravo. The name for this item is quite similar to the phrase "Rose-Tinted Glasses", which has the definition "An unduly idealistic, optimistic, sentimental, or wistful perspective on or about something". This phrase is often used by people who swear that no one is really interested in playing Vanilla as it was, only as they remember it... and this item is released during the Anniversary which is themed for the announcement of World of Warcraft: Classic, an Official Legacy Server release.
I see what you did there, Blizzard... and I approve.
Just wanted to clarify that the Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses are only transmoggable during WoW’s Anniversary event (every year). Apologies for any confusion!
If they were rose colored glasses, they'd be more appropriate for everyone clamoring for Classic Servers naaaaaooooowww!1111eleventy
The past is so bright you gotta wear shades!
Beware: disenchanting (DE) yielded a
Small Glimmering Shard
. However, YMMV.
"Yo, those glasses are swag! Where did you get them?"
The only tmog I got many complements on, I have such fun now that I got them :)
I love these glasses! It doesn't feel like much a gift when you can only wear them for 2 weeks every year.
Really really disappointed with Blizzard for making this mog only usable during anniversary events. We spent badges on this, and it's not like we can only use the past anniversary pets once a year, so why do this? :(
*!@# YOU BLIZZARD
There's a reason they're bronze. Like the @#$%ty move of time locking their usage, instead of making them moggable and wearable year round, they are brown.
YOU CAN ONLY USE DURING THE ANNIVERSARY EVENT!
C'mon Blizz! Seriously? Why waste 200 badges for a mog you can only use 2 weeks out of the year? The Corgi Goggles are lame but at least it works year-round.
, I remember the days when it first came out...They looked dashing with all my mogs.
I immediately got pissed for knowing later they're only transmoggable for the event. Well, unless you have the physical item yourself...
Edit: Hey, at least the
will be moggable 9.0.5 (hopefully without any stupid restrictions such as this).
It is still event only in Shadowland 9.1.5 ?
I believe this item is unavaialbe now, only the ones who have it can use it all the year. When purchasing this item now it gets consumed when righ clicked (its some kind of spell), added to your wardrobe and dissapearing from bags : /
