So I'm a little confused. I do not currently own the expansion, yet when I logged into the game today I suddenly have the Mystic sitting in town. Got an achievement for it and everything. How? Why? I didn't see anything in recent patch notes or news posts about it. Did I miss something?

Wardrobe function and transmog functions are available to you. Only thing you can't use is the stat rerolling.

Hmm, well I can use that too now. I have access to a fully functional mystic and I do not have the expansion. wtf? I'm not complaining, just really confused.

Glad you pointed this out, Gemini.

As it happens, the change in Patch 2.2.1 granting access to Myriam to players who have not upgraded to Reaper of Souls was intentional.

This allows players who receive transmogrification options through special events, promotions, or as Collector's Edition perks from our other games to now access them regardless of whether or not they own the expansion.

This change wasn't originally documented in our patch notes (although this has since been fixed). I've seen this question pop up elsewhere, too, and I can understand the confusion. I hope that clears things up for you! :)

To clarify, you should be able to enchant items, too. If you've run into any issues where you're not able to enchant items when you have Diablo III and didn't upgrade to the expansion, please let us know here or in the Bug Report forum.
