Vanity Items Guide


I have included every costume that I know of. If I missed something, let me know. I have not included (to my knowledge) any costumes that are only usable during quests. There is one listed that can only be used in Dalaran, but the rest can be used anywhere.

Super Simian Sphere

This is a rare Northrend drop. Wowhead lists the best drop chance from Sapph, an elite in Icecrown, at 0.4%. Oh, how I want this one...

Iron Boot Flask

Purchasable for 10 Relics of Ulduar from Rork Sharpchin in Stormpeaks.

Orb of Deception

This used to drop from a rare mob in Feralas (and low chance on any Azeroth mobs), but now I think it is only rarely obtainable from the level 60 raid bosses.
Depending on your race, it will change you to a race of the opposing faction.
Night Elf - Undead
Human - Orc
Gnome - Tauren
Dwarf - Troll
Dranei - Blood Elf
Worgen - Goblin

Orb of the Sin'dorei

Obtainable from any of the four bosses in Heroic Magister's Terrace.
1.5% - 3% drop chance

Rituals of the New Moon

Comes in 4 colors: Red, White, Grey, & Black
These are crafted items from inscription. The recipe is a Grizzly Hills drop for scribes.

Time-Lost Figurine

This drops from Terokk, who is a summoned boss in Terokkar Forrest.

Dartol's Rod of Transformation

This item is no longer available in-game. Pre-Cataclysm, this item was obtained thru a quest in Ashenvale. The post-Cataclysm quests will give you Dartol's Rod, which is only usable in Ashenvale. If you really want this, all is not lost. Get exalted with Timbermaw Hold and for 60 gold you can purchase a new item that does the same thing: Stave of Fur and Claw.

Frenzyheart Brew

Random quest reward from the Frenzyheart Dailies.

Carved Ogre Idol

This is available thru the WoW Trading Card Game (in other words, ebay)

Gordok Ogre Suit

Pre-Cataclysm, Leatherworkers and Tailors could learn this recipe from Knott the goblin inside Dire Maul. He also offered a repeatable quest to create this. They are unique, so you can only have one on you at a time. Guild bank, and mailbox can hold several. I have a couple dozen of these from my insane journey. The item is one use only (it disappears from your inventory).
Knott the goblin in Dire Maul, still allows you to do a quest to get this item, but I'm not sure if it's repeatable.

Gnomeregan Pride

This item is no longer obtainable in-game. This was a reward to those who assisted in Operation Gnomergan during the lead up to Cataclysm.

Savory Deviate Delight

This will turn you into either a Pirate or a Ninja. This is a crafted item, and one-use only (it disappears from you inventory when you eat it).

Noggenfogger Elixir

This is from a quest in Tanaris. You can go purchase more from Sprinkle Noggenfogger in Gadgetzan, you may have to complete the quest before you can get more. /me gets lost in nostalgia

Magic Eater

You might get a "Well Fed" buff, or you might turn into either a cockroach, a green whelp, a pink wisp, or a red miniature basilisk. You can fish these up in Northrend.

Burgy Blackheart's Handsome Hat

This will turn you into a ghostly gnome pirate!
(and make you a little bigger)
This has a 100% drop chance from Burgy Blackheart, who is a rare mob in Vash'Jir.

Orb of the Blackwhelp

This item is part of a quest in Blades Edge Mountains. The item has 3 charges, and is unique - so you can only have one on you at a time. The NPC that sells this appears to be hostile to Alliance. I will update this when I get more info.

Dire Brew

This is a unique, one time use item. It is obtained from Grim Guzzler in Black Rock Depths from Dark Iron Brewer located upstairs. You can get one, use it, then get another for later use. Buff lasts 1 hour, and you can mount with it.

Pygmy Oil

You have to drink 8-10 Pygmy Oil to get the transformation. Eating a couple will make you smaller. Pygmy oil is made by alchemists, who create 1-2 oils per Pygmy Suckerfish.

Underbelly Elixir

This item will turn you into a wasp, a tuskarr, or everyone a human mage tier 2. These elixirs are found laying around in Dalaran Sewers. The effect only works while in Dalaran.

Hook of the Master Angler

This turns you into a Frenzy fish. You can get this as a reward from winning the weekly Sunday event: Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza.

Ethereal Oil

Makes you "shadowformish". This is made by Alchemists.

Potion of Illusion

Using this item while targeting someone else, will make you look like them. It is made by alchemists.


Bought during lunar holidays, but can be used any time 'round the year! Makes you glow with moondust!

Hallowed Wand

The Hallowed Wand comes in 8 varieties:
Bat, Ghost, Leper Gnome, Ninja, Pirate, Random, Skeleton, and Wisp.
These are obtained from trick-or-treating during Hallows End event, but are usable at anytime.

Blossoming Branch

Obtained from Noble Garden holidays. Turns your target into a rabbit.

Winter Veil Disguise Kit

Obtained from the Winter Veil holidays, requires a snowball and turns you into a snowman.
