Is there a way to view my characters with a different race model?

#1MarndosPosted 4/5/2013 5:37:37 AM
I'm thinking of transferring one of my characters to play with a friend but I'd like to see how his gear looks on different races so I can pick the one I like best. Is there a way to do this? I heard Wowhead's profiler can do it but for the life of me I can't get it to work (apparently I'm not the only one ><).

Please change your vector and move to a different coordinate because this quadrant is off limits.

There's an easy and painless way to do this, but it's a little long:

-Make a level 1 character of the Race/Gender you are looking at first and log in
-On WoWhead, find your current gear
-Click on the "Link" button in WoWhead, copy the script and paste it in the chat
-Preview the gear in game

If you have 2 or 3 races you are looking at, this can be good enough, but if you are looking at all of them and of different genders, this won't really work out that well.



I'm guessing you aren't using an established set of gear like PVP/Raid gear, so would you mind posting a screenshot of your current set?

Can't you just find your own char and then change the race?

Yes - in Wowhead, import the character into the profiler. Then click Edit and change race. Simple as that.

Profiler sucks. Even when I can get it to function at least somewhat, it's never fully functional. I'll be able to search for gear for some slots but not others. It seems to have trouble loading the Pandaren race for the 3D model. I try to import my character but when I select my server I just get "page not found." I could go on but, meh.

The main Profiles page (www.wowhead.com/profiles) doesn't even seem to be working right now so maybe they're just fixing stuff.

Anyway, as for your question, I'd recommend maybe using the WoW Model Viewer, importing your character from the armory, exporting your character's equipment set, opening another race, then importing said equipment set.

Have they updated the Model Viewer for MoP? The version I have only supports up to Cataclysm.

You could get Mogit and just view your gear on a different race/gender. I've done that in the past, when I was interested in seeing what my hunter's mog would look like on my shaman.
