Is it bad that I actually shouted yes upon seeing this item's future existence? Because this just sounds awesome. Hopefully it doesn't break upon entering combat or something like that.
Also: Probably goes well with the Talon King/Queen titles.
Playable uncorrupted Arakkoa confirmed!
Now if we can just get a transformation item like the time-lost figurine that turns us into one of the new corrupted Arakkoa on alternate Draenor with the new HD textures.
2 hours cooldown, 10 minutes buff... I would love more buffs that at least have a shorter cooldown than that.
This toy has been removed from 6.1, which is why it's not in the toybox.
However I was told that this toy has been moved to 6.2 to be bought from a vendor in Tanaan,
not totally disappointed.
Edit: Thankfully added in, 50k apexis crystals, requires revered with the order of the awakened.
Another arakkoa transform toy added into 6.2:
which is a transform that turns you into a fel outcast arakkoa.
Hrrrm, Someone use this, someone else use the time-lost toy, And Fight to the Death! It must be done!
Honestly I don't even really want this item, I just want playable Arakkoa, period!
Omgogmogmogmogogmog finally! I REALLY wanted this :D
I'll work my @$$ off to get this XD
In order to get this toy, you need to be revered with
and buy it from
for 50 000
It's not really possible to grind the needed reputation except for doing the daily
each day for 1 500 rep per day.
Does anyone know what the requirements are for using this toy? Can your other characters use it no matter what, or is there also a level or reputation requirement?
Got it today on live, this toy requires revered to use, which means you can't use it on any alts, only the one who is 100 and is revered with the faction.
Might as well not even be a toy at this point, please change this blizzard.
When you mount you lose the visual, but not the buff, so you'll regain your lovely bird form once you dismount. It's also not removed by combat.
Side note, sadly Trans-dimensional Bird Whistle doesn't work with this Toy... no Birdception
Just a heads up, you have to be revered with Order of the Awakened to even use it. I bought it hoping I could use it on all of my characters.
Sadly there is no bow animation...My hunter is very sad.
I don't recommend getting this if you're a hunter, as the Arakkoa model you transform into has no animation for ranged weapons. Also, you cannot use it on alts unless you farm the reputation on them as well.
Very good-looking model, but it falls short due to these drawbacks.
Doesn't seem to have a shooting animation. how disappointing....
Dear fellow hunters,
Do not waste 50k Apexis! Like nearly all of the costume vanity items introduced in this expansion there are no ranged weapon animations when in use. :(
one sad sad hunter :'(
Can anyone clarify how long this effect lasts for once used?
Can anyone tell me if you have glyph of stars and you go boomkin if you turn into an astral bird?
Who in their right mind thought we'd like to look like chicken people?
Quite sad this cost 50k apexis and you can only use it on revered+ with Order of the Awakened... Not worth it IMO. I will never farm this rep ever again.
Unfortunately, unlike the corrupted arakkoa models from
, the high arakkoa model can't dance.
10 pics and nobody has posted casting animations = fail.
Use Ai-Li's Skymirror on yourself to double the duration of the transformation (albeit in ghostly form) when the buff is about to run out.
And as always, use your Vrykul Drinking Horn to be bigger, the helm won't show.
If you levitate while using this, you fly and flap your wings,
There is no dance animation for this model, just preening feathers.
Do you actually fly as an arakkoa when you use it in druids flight form?
While it really doesn't matter, something funny which I have noticed is that you can't sheathe your weapon with this toy on. It does the usual animation, moving the weapon upwards if twohanded, or to the side if onehanded. But the weapon remains in your hand, and it just looks like you're scratching your back with a sword.
1. High cost
2. No bow animation
3. 10 min duration / 2 hr CD
4. Not usable on any alt that is not revered with faction.
I have nothing else to spend apexis on, but still... if I could use it on my alts that at least would take the sour taste out of my mouth after purchasing this "toy".
Reasons NOT to buy this:
Expensive (50k Apexis Crystals)
Short duration (10 minutes)
Long cooldown (2 hours)
Very few animations (no dance, no shoot, no bow)
Must be revered with the faction to use (even on all of your alts. Yes, even though you spent 50k Crystals on this, which likely took you many weeks to gather, you don't even get to use it on your other toons until you get to revered on them, too)
Doesn't fly despite having a big pair of wings (unless you Levitate, but let's face it: it's not the same)
Does not persist through death (enough said)
Reasons TO buy this:
It's the closest you'll ever come to playing one of the coolest races in the game that Blizzard will doubtfully make playable (just like how my dream of playing a Saurok or anything
cooler than a panda was crushed)
Blizzard is a cruel tease, and don't waste your Apexis (unless you're obsessed with Arakkoa. In that case, join the club).
Fyi, this illusion makes your weapon huge.
It also makes your off hand weapon huge. So if you feel like creeping people out as Demo Lock, use it and then Stealthman somewhere. People will stop in confusion at the massive head floating in the middle of Dalaran.
If you use this item and then use any of the skyhorn kites in game (such
Derelict Skyhorn Kite
Rocfeather Skyhorn Kite
), you get the Arakkoa flight animation as you glide. It looks really amazing!
As of 7.3 this toy (and I imagine a bunch of others, I'll have to go looking) no longer require reputation to use! :D Hooray!
Try this as a firemage if you have your artifact weapon..
Miss your feathered form on your alt? Try this:
/use Rukhmar's Sacred Memory
Enjoy it while it lasts :)
This is a must have for any demonology warlock. It makes your Skull of the Man'ari absolutely giant.
The form you take when using this toy is Spec specific. (Just obtained as of 2/1/2021)
DPS- Taupe plumage and dark blue/purple robes with gold nose jewelry/chain. (Rogue/Poisoner look)
Tank- Ivory plumage with blue/gold ornamented vestments (Swordmaster/myrmidon like?)
Healer- Golden/Turqoise plumage with blue/gold ornamented robes&headdress. (Much like the Vendor who sells this item)
Levitate causes your character to flap in place. Can hold most weapons but cannot sheathe them (Ranged weapons appear after initiating combat but still have no animations).Appearance persists through combat, though mounting hides buff temporarily, as well as Druid travel form. Is affected normally by shrink and grow effects (Such as Elixir of Giant Growth and Small Feast). Appearance can be preserved for an additional 10 minutes using A-li's Skymirror Toy, however with the shimmering affect (You may be able to remove the shimmer with a Reflecting Prism but I've never used one so I'm not 100% sure how they work).
The arakkoa form you'll get seems to depend on your class, having about 2 random options for each class. Can't say it's 100% for every class but for the ones I tested, that's what I got. Too sad, the Warlock two versions looks kinda "light" aligned :(
