Some legendary items aren't just the luck of the drop. Some required a good bit of farming along with a proper kill. I for one would love to be able to show off my Val'nyr. I earned it when it was current, but now it's nothing more than a bank slot.
I look forward to the day Legendary items can be moged.
i personally like the deathmantle set for my rogue and the gul'dan set for my warlock
oh no not 10% of wow population ? say it aint so
Sulfuras and Thunderfury took a long time, a lot of work, and a lot of gold to get, and I solo farmed them in Cataclysm. I more than deserve to transmog them. People who get them when they're current have their reward then, when it's current and they have the best item. I don't know why they have to compulsively ruin everyone else's fun to protect their own self-esteem. I don't get the argument that everyone will wear them because time has not made them trivial to obtain. They still require a lot of time and money, no matter how you spin it and transmog is a more than fitting reward for that effort, an effort I doubt many people would actually want to go through.
Funny, I hate the old gear because of the general lack of glowing spell effects and the frequent lack of detail on the textures.
I don't see why they couldn't set it up to where you could only transmog a legendary if you obtained it when it was relevant. For example, I can't use my Sulfuras due to getting it a year or so ago but I can use my Shadowmourne since I got it while raiding ICC.
Tha car example is not valid because everyone wouldent get the Ferrari, it would just be a Ferrari wrapper to put on their Buick.
I don't think moggable oranges are going to provoke mass ragequitting. If you have it, regardless of how easy it was to get or when you got it, I believe you have the right to show it off.
Man i would love to be able to run around with my Thunderfury actually feeling like i have a lengendary instead of a FoS and a used bank slot.yea 100 other people on my server may already have it but if they earned it well done to them, no different than running around on a Raven Lord mount in my oppinion.
I wouldn't mind moggable legendaries. I, myself, wouldn't go out of my way to go get them, on account that some takes absurd time and money, and that some just don't look that good out of context. If everyone on my server wants to mog Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker, more power to them. They deserve it after who knows how many MC runs they did.
The only people who care about being able to transmog Legendaries, are the people who would feel they couldn't because "everyone else is". By that logic, it would then be everyone else's fault for being "unoriginal" which prevents them from also using their Legendary as an xmog.I know someone who's exactly like this. Won't use T2 or T6 Paladin, T5 or T6 Warlock, refuses to use 5.2 BC weapons, etc. It's ridiculous to allow yourself to be so affected by other people, especially people you don't even know or see irl. IMO everything should be xmoggable. It's not like it's a completely revolutionary idea...
This is going to get lost in the comments probably, but here it is anyway. Why not make the "Legendary" cloaks, and possibly the weapons be moggable if, and ONLY if, you acquired them while they were new. Similar to how the old vanilla PVP gear was/is restricted to those that actually ranked up in Vanilla.
You know what? I really like shaman T14. It's colorful. It's flashy.Yep.Also, once I'll finally get my hands on Dragonwrath, I'll likely want to mog it, too, so...
