The Trial of Style is a biannual micro-event in which adventurers from around Azeroth put their best clothes on and amaze the other contestants with their superior style. Six contestants are required.
The Trial of Style acts as a scenario for which you can queue up with other random players. Speak with a transmogrifier NPC in any major city to participate in the Trial.
Ladies and gentlemen of the Horde and Alliance, it's time to synchronize your wardrobes and prepare to do battle. The Trial of Style has arrived and it's time to put your transmogrification skills to the test.
Contestants will have two minutes to create transmog sets from within their collection, based on themes in the scenario. Two players at a time will be pulled up on stage to strike a pose and show off their creation— leaving the remaining four to vote on who of the two has managed to capture the theme best.
Strike a pose and shake your little tush... on the catwalk. When the glitter settles, you'll earn your just rewards.
Once the glitter settles and the rounds of voting have completed First Place, Second Place, and Third Place winners will be awarded. Don't worry, even if you don't win, there's always the . These prizes contain which can be redeemed for special transmog gear in Dalaran.
Fashion conscious citizens of Azeroth can also take advantage of Transmogrification and Barbershop services for free during the Trial of Style. Even if you don't participate, you can adjust your hairstyle and transmog for no gold cost while the event is active.
