Minipost: The bizarre trick of half-mogging robes


I was playing around with mogs the other day and noticed something really strange happens when you start to mix robes, specifically chest pieces that are full robes (above waist + below waist) with leg pieces that are only the robe bottom half.

Now normally, when you have a chest robe mogged, who cares what your legs are mogged to, right? You never see them, so what's the point?

Well, turns out if you're mogged into a full robe and you then mog your legs into a legs-only robe piece...this happens!


Weird, huh?

Just a display glitch, you might think, right?

Nope! It stays like that, even on the character select screen!


I tried with some other characters, and same deal.


Interestingly, this glitch only seems to work if you are mogged into the full robes first, and then "add" a pair of leg robes. Rades' current mog already uses leg robes, and when I mogged his chestpiece into a full robe, nothing happened.


However, if I then mogged the (now hidden) leg robes into something else, then remogged them back into the blue leg robes, presto!


It's a pretty strange effect, and as you can see with these pictures, the exact cutoff line differs quite a bit depending on your race. Also, I don't think there are a lot of leg robe pieces in the game? Sadly, I don't have many characters with a lot of robes/half-robes to truly start mix-and-matching!

Regardless, it's a weird little transmog trick. I'm sure someone out there can come up with a cool dual-robe mog!

    I ran into this on my female human priests, with Robes of the Unknown Fear (T14 LFR) + Reformationist's Skirt of the Pious (from 5.3 Barrens event). No transmog was required.

    If you wear a robe with a kilt, this happens, with or without transmogrification. Quite a few of my most recent outfits for my priest have required me to mog a kilt into pants so that a robe chestpiece displays properly.

    This also happens if you wear the Blue Overalls with a kilt.

    I discovered this glitch on my very first clothie/second toon ever! Buying some extra lowbie tailoring gear, she put overalls atop her colorful kilt. The overalls not only magically get much longer, they sew themselves together.

    The items bugging me lately are the belts like the Firestrike Cord. That extra flap of material is just not needed.

    Huh. I never knew that. I will remember NOT to do that!
