Coming up in 4.3: looking pretty with more bank space

Courtesy of MMO-Champion, with more information (at least on Transmogrification) on the official World of Warcraft blog:

In patch 4.3 you’ll be able to customise the appearance of your weapons and armor like never before.
The Ethereals, emerging from the nether, will bring with them a new technology they call Transmogrification. They’re heading to the capital cities of Azeroth to set up shop and to offer adventurers a unique service – copying the appearance of one magical item onto another. They only ask for a modest gold donation to recoup their costs.

Visiting a Transmogrifier will present players with a new interface that will allow them to change the appearance of an item while retaining its original stats.

I knew I was saving all that old gear for something. :D Now to figure out what I’ll want to look like… probably something like this for tanking:

That’s Wildfury Greatstaff; Cenarion Spaulders and Gloves; Stormrage Chestguard, Belt, Legguards, Boots and Bracers; helm and cloak hidden, which is something I normally do anyway.

And something including the Cursed Vision of Sargeras (and pants rather than a skirt) for DPS, assuming I can get Illidan to cough the damn thing up already.

Also coming in 4.3, Void Storage…

The Void Storage is a new type of bank where players will be able to store their old armors in order to free up space in their regular bank.

You have no idea how much space this feature will save me.

…actually, let me give you an idea. If we go by “soulbound weapons and armor only”, not counting trinkets, necklaces, rings and assorted toys (such as the stuff from Archaeology, dice, etc, etc), I would be able to drop 114 slots’ worth of items into Void Storage. More if by the time 4.3 comes out I’ve replaced T11 items entirely. That’s a little less than two thirds of my total bank capacity. This would be so awesome.
