I panicked of the fate of my Wardrobe. When WoWhead launched their Quest Wardrobe tool http://legion.wowhead.com/wardrobe I loaded my main in to it and looked at all the plate and weapons he had unlocked, everything was great, old quest stuff was in there, beautiful!
Then I logged in on a really old Alt. How old? Vanilla old. When Cata came out, someone sent me a Scroll of Resurrection and I used in on this character, boosted him to 80, and transferred him to a new server. How long has it been since then? well, he’s level 81 so that should give you some context.
When I loaded this old character, I was HORRIFIED to find he did not have any Pre-Cata quest rewards. I assumed (I think wrongly now) that the transfer had wiped his pre-cata quest history.
So I did another experiment. My roommate had a character on my account who has not been played since BC. He had something like 8 quest rewards total. So I’ve finally managed to call myself down, I assume that these characters are not loading correctly or competently in to WoWhead because they have not been logged in to in so long, so their armory entries are probably not 100% up to snuff to pull the data from.
Crisis averted, heart rate slowing. I’m secure knowing I’ll have most of the Pre-cata armor Avaiable to Warriors, Hunter and Rogues. I’m sad now I never managed to level a clothy pre-cata that I did not end up deleting.
