Day 5: Vanity item powers, activate!

This is the next day in Saga of Spellbound's 20 days of...WoW blogging challenge. You can find more participants here.

Catch up on Day 4: Oh, darling

As much as I love random flavor items like the Dancing Brazier or the pony keg, they take up a lot of bagspace, and I often forget to use them. I especially like utility items, like Jeeves or MOLL-E, but in particular I find items that transport you to other places to be fascinating. With wormholes, rings, and tabards, you can plan a trip around load screens rather than flight paths and zeppelins.

I decided to make a list of all the items I knew of that could be used to transport yourself to another location. Please comment if you know of any I missed!

Things to take you home:
The Innkeeper's Daughter (requires 150 archaeology) 
Ethereal Portal (TCG item)
Ruby Slippers (from the Wizard of Oz scene in Karazhan)
Scroll of Recall (requires 25 inscription)
Scroll of Recall II (requires 200 inscription)
Scroll of Recall III (requires 350 inscription)

Things to take you to civilization:
Shroud of Cooperation (requires honored guild rep and A Class Act)
Wrap of Unity (requires honored guild rep and guild level 15)
Cloak of Coordination (requires honored guild rep and Master Crafter)
Signet of the Kirin Tor (one of four stat combinations)
Boots of the Bay (reward from the Kalu'ak Fishing Derby)
Ultrasafe Transporter: Gadgetzan (requires 250 gnomish engineering)
Ultrasafe Transporter: Toshley's Station (requires 350 gnomish engineering)
Dimensional Ripper - Everlook (requires 250 goblin engineering)
Dimensional Ripper - Area 52 (requires 350 goblin engineering)

Things to put you out in the world:
Wormhole Generator: Northrend (requires 415 engineering)
Argent Crusader's Tabard
Blessed Medallion of Karabor (quest reward upon defeating Illidan)
The Schools of Arcane Magic - Mastery
Potion of Deepholm
The Last Relic of Argus (requires 300 archaeology)
Direbrew's Remote (a rare drop from the Brewfest daily boss)
Hellscream's Reach Tabard / Baradin's Wardens Tabard (purchased at honored rep with 40 Tol Barad Commendations

Go to Day 6: Akadesko


  1. Cool list. If you have a few of these you really can plan your way around the world in a few clicks.

  2. You missed the Hellscream's Reach Tabard / Baradin's Wardens Tabard (particularly convenient as there is a portal to your home city right there). Also the Direbrew's Remote, a drop during Brewfest, which allows you and your party transport to the Grim Guzzler. I assume you are ignoring the temporary and quest items like the Darnarian's Scroll of Teleportation which allows you to return from the Isle of Quel'Danas to Shattrath.

    Between all these items and knowing all the portals, it can be quite easy getting around.

  3. Ooh thanks for the reminder, paperclip. I'll get those on the list! And yes, I wanted to avoid temporary transports.
