Carved Ogre Idol is an item that allows you to transform into a hulking red ogre for 10 minutes at a time.
This item is a reward from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game UDE points system. The trinket costs 25,000 points or 250 UDE cards. At one card per booster pack the estimated price of the trinket in USD is $2,100.00 if purchased by booster packs. Note: Upper Deck points cards are freely bought and sold on e-Bay and this is a much easier way to come by the trinket. Additionally, registering for sponsored tournaments is another way to garner thousands of UDE points.
The effect lasts for 10 minutes and has a 10 minute cooldown.
There are a number of buffs that will remove the effect. These include any of the Halloween transformations, and the food Savory Deviate Delight. Polymorph will revert you back to an ogre when the spell effect is over. Death will also remove the effect.
There are only a few basic animations included for the Ogre costume. These include...
- dance (/dance)
- eat (/eat, /drink)
- kneel (/kneel)
- laugh (/laugh, /cackle, /giggle, /guffaw)
- roar (/roar, /greet)
- sit (/sit)
- wave (/hello, /wave, /bye)
Other animations that are not in for the ogre will cause the top half of the body to "freeze" during the normal animation time frame. (Like /excited or using a /say with a "!" or "?" at the end of the sentence.)
- There are several items with similar effects, some easier to obtain than others.

In patch 3.2.2, this has been changed from being a trinket and so now can be activated without equipping it and you can have two good useful trinkets equipped all the time.
