    DKs transmogging Grand Marshal weapons?

    Hi.
    So basically i was chillin around area 52 one day fully aware of the fact that DK´s can¨t or aren´t supposed to be able to transmog Grand Marshal weps.
    But i went ahead and i bought a replica GM Sword just for luls, and later tried transmogging it. Guess what? It actually worked for me.

    Im constantly getting whisps from people asking me how i did it, and several of my guldies tried doing it.
    I have rank 8 from vanilla on my warr, but that isnt supposed to be shared on account is it?
    I´ve never seen any other DK´s with Grand Marshal swords so im just wondering f if im super lucky and it just bugged for me, or if anyone has seen it before?

    I´ll post pics if anyone want´s, but cba to do it without request incase it actually works for alot of DKs.

    Enlighten me please.

    Also, i can transmog as many times as i want. Wasn´t just a one time thing.

    I'm pretty sure your PvP ranks from Vanilla now go to all characters of the same faction. I never got far, but all my alliance toons can use my Corporal title.

    I didn't think the old pvp titles was account bound, i know the FoS for HAVING one is, but not the use nor ability to use the gear for transmog was
    This is my Sig, there are many like it, but this one is mine.

    All my alliance characters have access to replica gear, I have the rank on my paladin. So I guess it is now account shared, or well atleast faction shared seeing as I cannot do it on Horde chars...

    You either got it with the bug that copied FoS while disconnecting on instances, or you are mistaken.

    Access to replica gear is not account-wide. I can use it on my mage (who is pimping the high warlord cloth pvp set; badass on undead mages), who had the appropriate rank in vanilla, but none of my other chars are able to buy it.

    Either that, or my account is bugged.

    Seems a stupid as hell idea to restrict that to just the characters. Look, I didn't play in vanilla and I almost utterly despise PvP and I think it's bizarrely inconsistent that they are taking a different approach to Naxx 40 gear than they are PvP epeen gear, but, let's come at this logically -- the only reason to bother at all with all the restrictions on it is that the player -- the person in the chair -- is a special snowflake, not a particular set of pixels. If I had been Vice-General of the Left Side of the Outer Brigade of Lordaeron or whatever gets you the gear on, say, a level 60 rogue that I have since lost any and all interest in playing, I would still be the total pimp that owned faces back in vanilla, and it would feel pretty stupid to not be able to use the crazy nice Alliance polearm on a Brewmaster when the only reason the moggable versions of this stuff were put in in the first place was to celebrate my own greatness.

    Well the replica items are red for me now when i look at them from the vendor. Im gonna try buying the honor version of the GM sword and see if i can transmog it.

    Tho the replica one i bought when they werent red still works for me. Im gonna try buying another replica wep and see if i can transmog that aswell.

    #Update - So the replica weps are red from the vendor, when i try buying one it says "item locked", honor version wouldnt let me transmog. So basically replica weps you need rank 8 or more on your char to buy, but not to transmog. And with honor wep you need rank 8 or more to transmog not to buy. So it obviously bugged for me when it let me buy a replica wep when i did. Guess im just super lucky!

    I have a HWL FoS and the only one who can buy and use/mog the gear is my warrior whom it belonged to.

    Nop, you saw/remember wrong. Titles are still for the character who earned them.

    As for the OP, armory link of a DK with it transmogged or it didn't happen
