First off ive been a long time WoW player, but ever since Pandaria ive been playing on and off. Recently decided to check out WoW again after the WoD leveling experience.
This is my first character i ever played and i still use it to date.

Now first i wanted to note, i dont expect to many people still able to transmog to these specific sets and seeing as the only people capable of transmogging in this specific way are people that
1. Got to Legionaire + rank in vanilla
2. Are shamans or rogues
3. Changed faction

Now my questions.
when the transmog collection page comes in Legion, what happens to this type of restricted gear?
Will all pieces be made publicly available or will the class pieces for the character you obtained the rank with become available?

Because of the rarity of this situation i lolled when i looked at my profile but. The fist weapon on the left hand is... on the wrong side.

Now this is not to start a discussion about snowflakes and everyone having acces.
I feel transmogs are there to make people feel unique, and nothing is more unique than having acces to gear noone else in the world has acces to unless you fufilled the above requirements.

The current transmog of weapons is one of the few things thats still special (even now requires dedication) How will the transmog of these weapons be handled? i know id love to be able to use the staff on my lock, but i can also understand it if that wasnt made available.

Any character that is able to purchase the Replica pieces right now, will still be able to use them for transmogrification in Legion. However, the appearances won't be made available account wide. The same rule also applies to the Replica weapons.

However, you can still unlock these items, on a per character basis, by obtaining 1800 Battleground Rating in Rated Battlegrounds.

Well probably many ppl will point the mistake soon.
To unlock Vanilla PvP Replica set all you need is 1800 RBG rating and everything gets unlocked full Blue/Epic set and even all the weapons. You dont need any higher rating than that.

Quite right! Edited the post (...and lamenting the lack of coffee)

Thanks for the info. 1 Small addition. Hunter Alliance transmog on my shaman. Its mail, but i cant transmog to it because its limited to hunter class. Will the Hunter transmog be avalable for me as well?

Let me live the dream of the Golden Shaman :D

As it stands, this won't be possible as a Shaman can't equip gear with the Hunter class restriction.
