It's wonderful! I want get me a big grimuar with demon wings or with skull for my warlock :)
Can't really do much here with warriors.
This is exciting!
Will these be out on Warlords of dreanor?
"... you’ve never been able to actually see those items on your character."Not 100% true. I remember my hunter making quivers years ago, and they'd show up on his back.
I like where they're going with this.
Class Accessories: Approved.
"... you’ve never been able to actually see those items on your character."Not 100% true. I remember my hunter making quivers years ago, and they'd show up on his back.I think they meant the other accessories. Librams, Sigils, Totems, Idols, etc.With the small exception of some offhand items that have the form of librams, none of the above have ever been truly visible. Even then, as a paladin if you have a libram equipped in your offhand it means you're a caster, which also means that thing is sheathed and thus invisible every time you're in combat.
Excited about this!
My best guess for what each class would use...Warrior = BannerRogue = ThrownDruid = IdolDeath Knight = SigilShaman = TotemPaladin = LibramHunter = Quiver/ Ammo PouchMagi = Wand or some magic channeling objectWarlock = GrimoirePriest = Holy RelicsMonk = Chi Talismans
ah, this im looking forward to! i think this would be a really great idea to bring into the game. cant wait to see how it turns out!
Make these crafted vanity items, with recipes ranging from easy to obtain mats for mundane looking models to rare mats for insanely awesome looking models. Here are some off the cuff ideas, the items are listed with the professions that would want them but not necessarily the professions that would craft them. BOE can be equipped by any character, BOP could mean "requires ______" instead.Alchemy:BOP Flask/Vials (3d belt accessory)Blacksmithing:BOP Smithy Hammer (3d belt accessory, replaces Blacksmith Hammer)Enchanting:BOP Dusty Fingers (hands sometimes poof with dust or flash with essence)Engineering:BOP Utility Belt (transmoggable belt, replaces all required tools, does not need to be equipped for benefit)Inscription: BOE LibramsBOE Hair Dye (dyes a colored streak in the user's hair like pandaren females have)BOP Quill (3d belt accessory)Jewelcrafting:BOE Earrings/Face Jewelry (Tauren nose rings, eyebrow rings, studs, etc)BOP Blingbuckle (3d belt accessory)Leatherworking: BOE Quiver/Bullet Box/Bullet Belt/Bandolier (changes to appropriate piece with equip/transmog)Tailoring: BOE Embroidery (cloak border overlays with unique designs)BOP Shimmerthread (cloak sometimes pulses with whisps of magic energy)HerbalismBOE Corsage/Boutineer (flower pinned to wrist or chest)BOE Floral Beret (flower behind ear)BOP Herb Pouch (3d belt accessory, +10 herbing)Mining:BOP Headlamp (3d head accessory)BOP Pickaxe (3d belt accessory, replaces pick, +10 mining)Skinning:BOP Bowie Knife (3d belt accessory, replaces skinning knife, +10 skinning)Archaeology:BOP Rolled Map (3d belt accessory)First Aid:BOE Battle Dressings: Head, Chest, etc (bloody bandage head accessory, shirt, etc)BOP F.A.K. first aid kit (3d belt accessory)Cooking:BOE Camp Stove/Hibachi/ Forge Goreman's Ubergriller 9000 (placed object, instant cast, +10 cooking in bag)I'm copywriting Forge Goreman, btw ;)Fishing already has a bunch of fun vanity items, it doesn't need more.
I believe a good cosmetic could be a battle standard that goes on your back, sort of like the argent grunting pet or the horde blademasters. They can even make it to where your reputation with the factions races decide which flag you can display. Mages could have a familiar that gets more complex or a a spellbook that gets thicker the higher the level.
Great idea! Next on to-do must be coloring your armor/weapon.
LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIBRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMS!The Light is with us!
Nice. Having my hunter pull an arrow from behind him like a cartoon character is a but funny. (kept waiting for him to pull a kitchen sink)
This will probably give a lot of increase in the game quality.I think that these little details are the really difference between a good game and a great game.
The fact that this is STILL in the concept stage or drawing board stage does not bode well for blizzard. Time to get off your ass and get this done guys.

Yeah and as a purely cosmetic customization, it will be purchasable with money I bet. That would make me mad.
