The real questions for this item will be:
How long does the appearance swap last?
Can it be used on other players, and if so, can it be used on out of combat players in cities, and vice versa, can it be used in combat and on members of the opposite faction?
Can it be used on npc's such as city bosses?
I'm glad they put the Void Shift Glyph in the game in some form, even if it's a consumable with charges. I loved that thing.
Just bought this, here are a few facts.
The item has 50 charges. Can be used only on party and raid members, does not work on pets. It can be cast in combat, its a 2 second channel which lasts 5 minutes with no cooldown on the item. It doesn't actually "swap" appearances you just look exactly like the player you cast it on. It works on things like shapeshifted druids so yes you can be a cat. Cannot mount while shapeshifted.
The buff lasts five minutes and can be removed if you dislike the swap.
It doesn't appear to be usable on NPCs or opposite faction players.
swap appearances, though I don't have experience using it on a shape-shifted player to say if it works in that instance as a swap or not.
When I applied it to a party member who was mounted, it transformed me but not the mounted player. Despite being applicable to mount-ready models, you can't mount up with the buff applied.
Also, it doesn't swap weapons, which is really unfortunate since I tend to run with a rogue and I personally carry a staff, so I'm left in ugly nightslayer transmogrification gear and my giant staff, which kind of ruins the illusion.
can be used on shapeshifted druids: you will gain their appearence, but they WONT change with you.
in feral form with Chamaleon glyph, they will change colours.
edit: massive fun in raids: use on target, dispell buff on you, repeat
everyone looks like your toon
edit2: removes longer appearences buff from target like saviory deviate delight to change with you, buff is only 5min, target might not like it
Used this to turn the entire raid into bears.
Couple of notes:
I've tried with this almost all the class-based shape shift forms, and in every single case, it works. This includes otherwise temporary forms, like
. You will retain the form even if the target leaves the shape shift or their shape shift spell expires. Only form I haven't tried with by memory is a Druid's Flight Form.
Mainhand and Offhand weapons are preserved during the exchange, however the appearance of all armour is swapped.
When used on shapeshifted players, they will not take your appearance. They will still gain the buff however, meaning when they hop out of shapeshift they will then appear like you.
This is completely combat friendly. You can tank raid bosses as a Treant or cat, or any other form you can think of. You can also recast in combat. However, since this is a channel, I don't recommend it for tanking, as you can't block/dodge/parry while channelling.
This is best used with the Toy Box. For example, put down a
and get someone to dance with it, which turns them into a fire-Draenei. You can then use the Prism on them and become a Fire Draenei. Experiment with your friends toy box and you will never get bored!
Some models will have weapon and off-hand attachment points, allowing you to wield weapons even though those models traditionally don't allow weapons and off-hands (For example, you can tank with a sword + board as a Treant). Other models have the attachment points incorrectly added - Sometimes when I took cat form (Or travel form?) I ended up being impaled by my own shield. Other forms hide weapons and off-hands entirely.
You cannot steal someone's appearance then use
to strip them naked in front of them. Don't ask why this is the first thing I tested. You gain both buffs but just appear like them, armour and all. I haven't tested this vice versa. However...
Some combinations of shapeshifts and toys can make you take their normal (unshapeshifted) appearance, but naked, even if they are not. I can't remember how I pulled that one off. Reply if you can reproduce this!
You can strip naked yourself, then swap appearance, and they'll be stuck as a naked you until they cancel the buff.
Finally, the most important fact I found:
You can make a Demonology Warlock cry by stealing his appearance in
while tanking, and actually be a Demon Tank for 5 minutes.
to work. :p
Anyone use this in PvP? Imagine a foe's surprise after they gank a tank's party priest and it's the
. Of course the two-hander would be a dead giveaway, but I've seen my share of stupidity on battlegrounds.
If a druid has this glythed
and swap appearance. You will look like a worgen female in just white-out form. No color.
This item is life
weird bug using this:
if you are worgen and use it on a worgen, and change to human, the skin texture stays the same (fur, not skin lol) and the head gear gets tottaly weird!
using it on a worgen with stormwind set from dwarven bunker makes my worgen (on human form) stay with no helmet but the helmet texture stays!
the other guy when changing to human still had my leather dwarven bunker helmet, worgen size, making him have a gigantic head! will post screens next raid! :P
/cancelaura Prismatic Reflection
Incorporate this into a macro and keybind/click it if you have some more enthusiastic raiders love making you into a bear, cat, wolf, or other such transformation to make you lose track of your character during times of high raid movement.
Just had a
Boomking dance party
using that :)
If you wear shield, after using the prism you may get a very funny effect :) I've uploaded a screenshot of a spiky shield impaled white pig :)
You can now mount while under the effect of
. Mounting while not disguised as something with a mounted animation will cause the player to turn into their player model.
A DK with a mismatch of gear trying to pose as a Paladin by using Firelands plate tier look alike gear, and some weird shoulders stole my Paladins full Judgement set today. I wanted to cry...
Step 1: Find a mage with a variety of Polymorph alternatives such as monkies, penguins, rabbits, pigs, turtles etc. Also find one more willing volunteer. Both must be level 90 or higher.
Step 2: Travel to the Timeless Isle and get the Mage to acquire a Censure of Eternal Agony
Step 3: The mage polymorphs your volunteer into the form of your choosing
Step 4: Reflecting Prism your volunteer, have him click off the Reflecting Prism buff, Use the Reflecting Prism again. Both should now have the polymorphed form from Prism buff.
Step 5: Hearth to the city of your choice, using the Prism on your volunteer to refresh the buff as needed
Step 6: Battlesheep
I put off learning this on my JC until recently, because the vendor tooltip on the recipe says "1 charge" and I didn't see any point in using a Sorcerous Fire on a consumable item with only one charge.
(I submitted a bug report against this, and the Prismatic Focusing Lens recipe, which also says 1 charge. )
This item is a total blast when combined with
. The mirror illusion breaks on spellcasting or damage, but the Prism doesn't. This means you can do your raid or timewalking dungeon as the
himself, a pack of
s, or some other menagerie of pets.
Some flying pets seem to have a problem clipping the floor since you don't really fly and instead scoot along the ground. However, a few I've seen that are especially good are:
- Just adorable.
- Equips the weapons you have on your character and uses them, including dual wielding.
- If you combine this with
, you get pretty big.
I'll update this as I find more that are really fun.
I take your faces, for the glory of the many-faced god!
Cannot be used to copy a worgen's human form on a non-worgen. The other character is put in worgen form, regardless of who used the prism.
With two worgen, they copy both of each other's forms (human and worgen) and can switch between them independently using Two Forms, but the human form is currently texture-bugged, as reported by fathom81.
Coolest way to use this item I've found so far is to cast it onto someone who has just clicked on the teleporter in Hellfire Citadel, to turn into an orb of magic. Really hard to pull off, but it looks amazing. Screenshot Proof.
First thing I thought of when I heard about this item was the theme song of this anime;
Kinda sounds the same doesnt it?
Step 1: Enter a dungeon with a druid tank. For maximum effect, use the most humanoid-looking race you possibly can.
Step 2: During combat, use the prism on the tank.
Step 3: Watch and laugh.
This seems to no longer work with the magic pet mirror toy. :( So much for that.
I have no idea what combination of appearance swaps had to be done to make this happen, but about 10 people were just walking around Dalaran with the reflecting prism buff ... as 4-story-high ghost devilsaurs.
I need to know how to do this.
This item has stopped working for me while in a raid. Is this yet another fun nerf?
The best thing I have found to do with this that I would do in BFA and somex raids was to use the underlight angler in some water and then the prism on someone and if you wanted to again to get the appearance back on you. When you get out of the water you would still be a fish even in combat from what I remember, I may have used another item for the combat stay though, not sure as it has been a while.
It was also fun during the anniversary to use the arthas costume and then the prism on the whole raid so we had a full raid of Arthas killing bosses or Merlocs using the wand. I really hope it still works now. I havent had a chance to check as of yet but I will soon and I'll edit this to say if it got nerfed or not.
