Patch 9.1.5 - Old Starter Gear Availability
Patch 9.1.5 introduces new Starting Gear Armor Sets, replacing the old starter gear from Vanilla zones. If you're interested in collecting the items before the patch goes live on November 2, Simaia has created a spreadsheet that covers all common gear from different classes and races.

If you don't wanna bother making alts and storing all that common gear in the bank, there are some good news though. Blizzard has announced that they're working on making the old starter gear available in the future.

Please don’t worry that any original starter gear might go away forever or become very rare.

We’re working on making all of those various older starter pieces available to players who want to obtain them.

This applies to anyone who does not currently have a free name change available. Existing name changes will not stack for future use.

Players can request a name change through this form. You will receive a notification once your request has been processed. Please allow up to four weeks for processing.

Thanks and we’ll see you in game!

Continue the fight against the Jailer and freely bear the colors of the Covenant of your choice. Enhance your character's look with all-new customization options for select Allied Races. Also in this update, go back in time to the Broken Shore for Legion Timewalking and take on the challenges of the Mage Tower once more!

9.1.5 CONTENT UPDATE NOTES
Learn more about the changes and new additions for the 9.1.5 Content Update in our notes. [LEARN MORE]

Quality of Life Improvements
ISLAND EXPEDITIONS: QUEUE SOLO OR WITH A PARTY
Players who want to take on Island Expeditions are now able to queue for them solo or with a party to enter Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulties. There are a bounty of awards just waiting to be plundered.

ALLIED RACE UNLOCKS
Allied races such as the Kul’Tiran humans, Mechagnomes, and Dark Iron Dwarves, which had a dungeon requirement to unlock them, will no longer need to complete the associated quest to gain access to these races. Players will be able to skip it instead.

TRANSMOGRIFICATION LINKING
Show off your complete transmog outfit to chat or online by easily sharing a link to it from the Dressing Room. Players will be able to mouse over these items to see how they can be collected, if they’ve already collected the appearance, or if it’s an appearance that is accessible to the character viewing it.

PVP GEAR POWER ADJUSTMENTS
Lower item-level PvP gear will now scale to a higher item-level in PvP situations than before. This should reduce the power level gap so that new characters can feel that they're able to compete in Battlegrounds and Arenas more readily. This change will not affect high item-level PvP gear.
