While the trinket is very useful for physical DPS classes, it does have its flaws. As its proc causes the wearer to "transform" into one of the races of Northrend, certain actions (such as mounting) are prohibited as a result (this does not remove druid forms however, unlike or transforms).
The transformations the trinket provides are random, last 30 seconds each, and vary between classes.
The heroic version increases stats and attack power by 605.
