I think another hole in the theory of it being a Blizzcon reward is that it was never encrypted to begin with really. The original blizzcon armor, armor_encrypted23_b_01, was encrypted for some time before being revealed while the Sprite Darter outfit was more or less known since it was datamined. As also stated, it never had any Blizzcon tags on it to begin with, so the plan doesn't seem to originally indicate being a Blizzcon item. There does however exist another potential BlizzConline set: armor_encrypted286_d_01 - it also has shapes for every race, so it doesn't seem NPC or race-specific (ie not heritage armour). This set is still encrypted and is of similar naming fashion to other store-type items.Really hoping that we see what the deal with the murder mystery was... it itself has become a mystery.
If it would have been a Blizzcon item, they could also hold it back until blizzconline early next year. no rush to throw out thing they could also use on other occasions. Well the income from the sells of the standalone transmog or the spike in 6month subs could possibly be too lucrative to neglect. at the end they are a corporate and they need to make profit after all.
Blizzcon is still happening in february so there will be cosmetics tied to Blizzcon ticket. It really doesn't matter what this set may or may not have been. What it is is a first cash shop tmog set, it's just the beginning. If Blizzard keeps putting in more and more high quality items on their cash shop they might as well go f2p, it will be way more profitable for them and it won't be scummy. Imagine paying 13€ every month to be able to log in to the game plus full AAA priced expansions every 2 years and that's still not enough for developers to focus their efforts into the game
I had a break when "Wendigo Woolies set" was a gifted to those who bought the blizzcon online ticket. It makes me so darn sad that i will never ever be able to get that t-mog set. I LOVE IT!I know it wont happen, but man do i hope they put it up for sale in the shop at some point. I will buy without blinking <3
i do wish they put this much effort into in game sets.i atleast would like a cloth set with a robe like this.
The thing that upsets me the most, is that this is a very well made set while many sets in BfA (especially eternal palace mail) look awful.
Nah I think its more shareholders Xsmas present.
Nah just more bonuses for the Activision fat cats, not Blizzard. Blizzard is dead.
the set reminds me of Living Wood, the mythic version of Tier 17 druid set, with the helmet and the wings on the shoulders, and it would've been a cool set if not for the mask, a hood would've been enough, and the spiky shoes (which invoke a jester-like aesthetic), if anything, either plain purple shoes or they should've given them claws, like Bearmantle Tier 21 druid set, since Sprite Darters are dragons after all, and dragons have clawsand yes, I do own this set, because I'm on a 6 month subscription plan, but I don't plan on using it, doesn't look good on a female pandaren in my personal opinion
I agree it was meant for something else. It's too soon after the last 6 month reward, unless that did really badly. That mecha Dragon mounts pretty cool but I don't see many about.
People are getting kicked from groups for wearing this...I wish it was obtainable from a cool quest instead.
Trick for people who like the shop items but don’t want to spend money on them. Learn to play the auction house. An addon such as Trade Skill Master is very helpful. Wait until the token price drops very low. Buy tokens for gold at the cheap price and convert to Blizzard balance. Wait until an item shows up you like and use the blizzard balance to purchase it. You could probably end up getting this set for less gold then some single pieces of gear on the AH such as the mythic Antorus shoulders that just dropped for a group I was in recently. Having said that I would prefer things like this were added directly to quest rewards etc...
I just want to know who killed the bunnies.
OHH... GREAT, a ugly set with a lore or Blizzcon special.It wasn't even announced and is already showing the worst of this year's Blizzcon? please hope that you do not have any reference other than the price for 6 months of paid subscription.
i got this for free with the current 6 months for the mount so no complaints here KEKW
