This is not really much of a whine, but more of an observation/recommendation......I have been playing this game since vanilla, and since then I have noticed that class armour sets have become more bland, unimaginative and forgettable as the expansions have progressed.
The original dungeon sets and tiers 1-6 were very distinctive and iconic, and the remain so to this day.
However I found that wotlk was the tipping point, where the armors began to get boring and unimaginative, however there still were some awesome looking sets,( I.e. dark runed set, frostfire set etc...), however in cata and mop the decline is obvious... There has been no effort to make pvp and Pve epic armor sets aesthetically pleasing. The textures have become drab grey/brown/rusty in color, and look worse than wotlk greens!
Maybe the transmog feature has made devs and artists lazy.. Or they just don't care anymore.. But would nice to see the art quality of armour sets return to tbc/ vanilla standards…
And this. All the armor use "faded" color schemes. I miss it when the red was RED and the gold was GOLD, not red-ish and gold-ish after lying in the sun and dust for several decades. The armor just doesn't pop anymore.
Also, i am aware i do not know the official statistics of the gear that ppl transmog but I am 100% positive that majority of transmog is from Vanilla and TBC.
You wouldn't even dare try and lie to prove me wrong so tell the creators to make more camp, fancy gear!!!!!
How many of you are concerned that legacy legendaries will become the new Paladin Tier 2, in that everyone and his dog will be equipping them? Wouldn't it somehow ruin the novelty of owning these items when you get to see them being used constantly, even by levelling characters? Alright, I guess the argument for items that aren't available anymore is a little stronger in my eyes.
But hey, we're not ruling it out completely—one day, who knows? We purposefully made it very limited when transmogrification started, so we could maybe open things up further down the road. I've seen plenty of people argue against this is all.
Are you sure? One of the reasons I've never gone for the Twin Blades of Azzinoth is because I know I wouldn't be able to show them off constantly. All that work for a few minutes posing in Stormwind? But if I could transmogrify them, I'd be in BT every waking moment trying for those things, and I think there'd be a few more like me. Just a guess, of course. At least now when you see someone taking those few minutes to /flex in the city with those awesome old school legendaries, you're impressed. Well, I am :)
