Dire Brew is left behind by Dark Iron Brewer in the bar in Blackrock Depths. Start talking to him, and he excitedly talks about his new recipe. Eventually, he drinks too much of it and passes out, dropping the Mug of Dire Brew. This transforms you into a Dark Iron Dwarf for one hour, with unique armor based on your class. Unfortunately, it looks like a recent patch temporarily broke this dialogue, but GMs claim it will be fixed soon.

Hostile NPCs
Orb of the Sin”dorei drops from any of the bosses in Heroic Magisters” Terrace. It transforms you into a blood elf, yet you retain your unique armor. Your disguised facial features are based on your own character’s—so head to the barbershop if you’re looking for a special blood-elf transformation.Burgy Blackheart”s Handsome Hat is a 100% drop from Burgy Blackheart, a rare-spawn flamboyant gnome pirate ghost in Vash’jir. He has a very high opinion of himself, saying "Feast ye eyes upon the dreadful, clever, all-powerfull, hate-filled, sword-swignin”, face-punchin”, insult-flingin”, and all around handsome, BURGY BLACKHEART." He’s not difficult at all to kill at 85 and if you have low-levels summoned in your party, they can loot the hat for fun. This item has no cooldown and instantly turns you into a spectral pirate gnome when equipped.Mr. Smite”s Brass Compass drops from Yorik Sharpeye, a Yaungol rare elite in Mists of Pandaria. Based on his dialogue and tiny Deadmines ship next to him, this appears to be Mr. Smite from the Deadmines in disguise.

It transforms you into an Undead rogue wearing Slayer”s Armor and red goggles.When clearing Scholomance, one person can loot Empty Polyformic Acid Vial by Professor Slate. Clicking on the sparkling table nearby will fill the vial and transform it into Nearly Full Vial of Polyformic Acid, which looks like the Undead professor.

Discombobulator Ray, made by engineers, turns the target into a Leper Gnome. It only lasts for 12 seconds and has five charges, but the materials required to make more aren’t too bad. Anyone, regardless of their professions, can use it too.Savory Deviate Delight turns you into a human ninja wearing a unique armor set or a pirate. It requires Deviate Fish which can be fished in Northern Barrens or Wailing Caverns. The recipe, which used to be an extremely rare world drop, has had its droprate buffed in Cataclysm.Dimensional Ripper – Area 52 and Ultrasafe Transporter: Toshley”s Station have a chance to transform the engineer into one of the following for an hour: male dwarf, female draenei, female gnome, male night elf, female orc, male tauren, male troll, female blood elf. You keep your armor but receive unique facial details. This debuff lasts through death but does not override druid shapeshifts.Dressed to Kill transforms you into a human wearing either a white or black pantsuit with Stylin” Adventure Hat or Stylin” Jungle Hat. This disguise is acquired by choosing the "Party" option from Blingtron 4000.

Gnomeregan Pride and Darkspear Pride were quest rewards for completing the faction-specific pre-Cataclysm launch events. They turn you into a gnome/troll respectively but sadly, they’re not available in-game anymore. However, many players forgot about these items soon after acquiring them because they were so common. The disguises last for 30 minutes, on a 4 hour cooldown, and work while mounted.Faded Wizard Hat is the Horde-only reward for completing Farewell, Minnow, the final quest in Azshara. This buff persists through combat, lasts 30 minutes, and has a 30 minute cooldown—but you must keep the hat on to keep the disguise. Like the Orb of Deception, you receive a complete new look, armor set, and animations while disguised, but unlike the Orb of Deception, you have a huge variety of random disguises—16 possible options! Alliance, do not faction-change to complete this quest, as it will disappear when you race change back.Muradin”s Favor, a BoE reward from the Shadowmourne quest Muradin”s Lament, turns you into a frost dwarf for 10 minutes. Random chance to get one of three hair colors.Voodoo Brew is obtained when questing on the Isle of Reckoning in Kun-Lai.

Dance with the other Gurubashi Witch Doctors to get them to cheer back!Players working on Operation Shieldwall/Dominance Offensive quests can purchase Obelisk of Deception for 500 Domination Point Commission/Lion”s Landing Commission. This lets players turn into the opposite faction, like Orb of Deception.Players that have completed The Rest is History as part of Molten Front quests will receive Leyara”s Locket, turning them into a Druid of the Flame as tribute to Leyara.

Kalytha”s Haunted Locket is available for 5,000g from Tex Vortacoil, a goblin mage in Archmage Xylem’s tower in Azshara. The disguise lasts 30 mintes and through combat, on a 15 minute cooldown. It’s perfect for using in raids if you dislike how your character looks.

It transforms you into a dark blue iron dwarf, yet you keep your own weapons. Disguise cannot be kept while mounted and you can only buy it after completing Ancient Relics. If you use it and then pop the Orb of the Sin”dorei, you will turn into a male blood elf. It’s needed for the Ulduar achievement But I”m On Your Side (25 player). Since using this item will classify you as a male character, popping another disguise as an Iron Dwarf will turn you into that option”s male character model even if you are a female.Brazier of Dancing Flames turns you into a flaming dancing female Draenei. It costs 350 Burning Blossom from festival vendors. As long as you stay near the Brazier, you can mount up.Players can buy special Hallowed Wands from Hallow”s Eve vendors.

World drop
The Orb of Deception is the classic shapeshifting trinket. It’s a world drop from vanilla mobs and is BoE, still fetching a hefty price on the AH. It turns you into a member of the opposing faction complete with low-level armor. Although the item has been in the game for ages, it’s been updated to allow transformations for newer races.

Dungeons and Scenarios
