Shirts from level 1 characters were removed in Cataclysm, and replaced with chest armor, however these shirts still exist and can sometimes be found languishing in your bank or for high prices on the Auction House.


Dalaran shirts

A vendor in Dalaran offers shirts for sale to players.


Don’t make the mistake of trying to flip the Embroidered Shirt – it costs 1,000g just to buy from vendor.

Style: Shirts have short sleeves and more details, the Doublets are long sleeves. Martial Shirts are all re-colours of the Orange Martial Shirt (made by tailors, pattern in Darnassus or Thunder Bluff)

Old Hillsbrad Shirts

These are sold by Traveling Salesman in the Old Hillsbrad Instance (access through the Caverns of Time, Tanaris) He paths between Tarren Mill and Southshore along the road. The shirts cost 1c and saleable on the AH

  • Recruit’s Shirt
  • Squire’s Shirt
  • Neophyte’s Shirt
  • Apprentice’s Shirt
  • Acolyte’s Shirt




Argent Tournament Shirts

These are sold as “souvenirs” by a goblin at the Argent Tournament for 25g each. They can be resold on the AH but please experiment carefully and discover what is popular and at what price on your own server.

If you transfer faction, the shirt will change with you. The shirts can only be worn by a player of the same faction, eg orcs can’t wear Stormwind shirts.

Orgrimmar Doublet
Sen’jin Doublet
Silvermoon Doublet
Thunder Bluff Doublet
Undercity Doublet
Stormwind Doublet
Gnomeregan Doublet
Ironforge Doublet
Exodar Doublet
Darnassus Doublet


Most Expensive Shirts to sell

  • Sleeveless T-Shirt: Looted by Horde in AV from Alliance NPCs, but can be placed on the AH as it isn’t soulbound.
  • Rich Purple Silk Shirt, made by tailors. The pattern is a BoE world drop
  • Ebon Filigreed Shirt, from Dalaran vendor
  • Deckhand’s Shirt – Drops from Southsea mobs on Fray Island, North Barrens.
  • Starter Shirts that are no longer obtainable






Most important part – How to Sell Shirts on the AH

Quantity For a shirt crafted with Tailoring, it’s acceptable to post more than one at a time.  For those bought from vendors, just put one up.

Prices For a tailored shirt, its ok to undercut your competitors, as long as you still make a profit, not a loss.

For shirts bought from vendors, your aim is to get as much as possible. Check the Undermine Journal and WoWuction prices (if you have Trade Skill Master addon, these prices might be imported as a mouseover tooltip), and aim for at least the realm market price.  In an optimistic mood, I might try and sell for 150-200% of the average between realm price and global price.

Time: 12 hours preferably, 48 hours if you must.

    I was never into shirts on AH, time to change that 🙂 For starters I have imported those most expensive selling ones. As for your lost TSM profiles – either I missed this entirely in your Twitch stream, or you havent mentioned TSM app backup? I set mine to backup everything once a day. It did save my sanity a few times. Can’t imagine setting up my TSM from scratch, it’s been evolving for years.

      Alas, my backup didn’t go where it was meant to, and the old ones I had were corrupted. So I started from scratch
