Addon recommendation: MogIt

3D tooltips!
Many of my guildmates have been looking for tools to make the new transmogrification process easier.  Until now, most of us had been using the 3D view feature at Wowhead or using model viewing applications such as Wow Model Viewer.  While very good utilities, both of these options were a little lacking for people who wished to do this work from inside the game or just make it easier to know what to look for.

Enter MogIt!

MogIt is an addon designed to help make choosing items to transmogrify that little bit easier.  One of the first features I noticed (which is optional) is a 3D model of your character wearing the item added to item tooltips.  I would almost have added the addon for this feature alone.  I know that you can ctrl-click to view any item on your character, but my energy is limited and anything I can do to reduce the amount of clicks involved in mundane tasks is a very big help.  Now when looking at items on the auction house, I only need to hold my cursor over the item to see it.

This is only one tiny part of the addon however.  Its main use is to enable you to view all armour and weapon options in game.  You can filter the models by item slot, level, armour type and best of all in my opinion, approximate colour.  One thing to bear in  mind whilst using this addon is that it is calling on many files whilst in use, so it may slow down some slower computers.  I haven't noticed any extra lag on my own use of this addon, but then I am only using it while stood in town with very little going on.  I have no intention of leaving this addon enabled when raid time comes around.

Filtering by colour

Now, if this sounds to good to be true already then its a good time to mention that the addon also allows you to save a wish list of items and has a note of how to obtain each item making it easy to save a record of outfits that take your fancy.

So, if you have been bitten by the transmogrification bug, go ahead and give it a try!
