World of Warcraft's Trading Post Will Let You Earn New Cosmetics For Free Each Month

World of Warcraft has changed with Dragonflight’s release. One of those big changes that will stretch wide across the game as a whole is the overhauled Trading Post and new options it presents. The new Trading Post will let you earn currency to get new cosmetics –transmogs, pets, and mounts.

New traders will set up in the capital cities of Stormwind and Orgrimmar, and in these shops, the item selection will get monthly updates. You'll be able to check out the new items every month and you can even preview the transmogs on the mannequins, pets on display, and mounts in the stable. When you speak to the shopkeeper you'll be able to get the full list of the month's items. Items that rotate out will not be gone for good because the system will be designed to rotate items back in,  And some of the items will be cosmetics from promotions that are no longer available, giving a new way to earn stuff you thought you missed.

Now, how do you get your hands on all of these new, freshly stocked goods? Trader’s Tender, which is a new currency that will be account-wide. Every subscriber will get a set amount of the new currency on the first of each month. 

You'll be able to get 500 just by logging in and visiting a Trader every month. For more, you’ll have to complete activities from the list in the Traveler’s Log. These activities let you earn up to an additional 500 Trader’s Tender. These amounts are not final, and in fact, the whole feature will be landing on the PTR for testing soon.

Those activities in the Trader’s Log will be themed each month, and you will only be able to earn a certain amount of currency per month. There will be more activities than you need in order to earn the monthly max, which lets everyone pick and choose which activities–things like competing in battlegrounds, running Mythic+ dungeons, and more, but generally stuff you might find yourself doing anyway.

In the announcement, a sample screen of the feature shows a log with the theme “Caring and Sharing”, with activities like earning 50 TT for resurrecting other players. The side menu also has categories, like dungeons and raids, pet battles, PvP, and quests. See the full announcement over at World of Warcraft.
