I don't know if this is intended or not, but to me it doesn feel right. Has anyone encountered the same thing while playing by the way?

# 11 Jan 28, 2014Just confirmed with development that this is more or less a bug. I say "more or less" because, technically, transmogrification appearances are only granted whenever you identify an item -- and, of course, items purchased from Kadala come pre-identified. However, the current functionality still isn't intended; ideally, we want items from Kadala to grant transmogrification appearances same as normal drops, where applicable.
We've put in a bug report and will be working on it for the next PTR/Beta patch. I can't confirm whether or not the fix will actually make that milestone, but the idea is that it will be in place for the launch of RoS.
Right now, for reference, we're looking at having Kadala's items still come pre-identified, but to have any associated transmogrification appearances granted on successful purchase. That functionality may evolve/change as we work on the fix, however, and we'll be sure to keep you guys updated.
Thanks for the post!
For clarity (you know, just in case): This fix would only apply to Legendary appearances granted by items purchased from Kadala, since non-Legendary appearances unlock as you level up the Mystic.
