"And when we eventually face Queen Azshara, there's a high-elven aquatic vibe we can capture there"Great. Hunters will end up in a Naga suit again I'm sure. Remember when weapons and armor in games actually looked like weapons and armor? Instead of something from an evil Pokémon....... /sigh
I never wear tier sets for transmog anyway, feels to boring. I like mixing and matching but I see how some people like to collect sets.seems this is an easier way for the art dept.
It sounds to me like Blizzard is pushing this expansion out similar to what they did with WoD. This will be a filler x pack to focus a lot of their resources on another huge expansion (maybe a final, no holds bar expansion) after BfA.
Yay, no more Death Knight themed gear ! This. Is. Perfect. Sigh.I understand some classes don't need specific themed gear, like warriors, hunters, shaman... I don't have specific set xmog with them and more like casual outfit and such, who is more fitting to the lore... But Death Knight in Kul'Tirean armors ? With pirates blades ? Or, i don't know, "high-elven aquatic" ? Like the Demon Hunter, or even the Monk, such classes arebuilt on non-typical gears. Heavy and dreadfull plate, thin layered leather with demon's bodyparts, asian style... Having class themed tier-sets were the only way to introduce these in recent xpac, for there is no undead or mogu or pandaren themed area... And with the fall of the Legion, there will be far less demon themed area too. So while a like having my priest or my warlock geared with lovecraftian stuff ( this is really perfect x') ), i fear for those uncommon classes.
If I understand correctly, can not one of my many lev 110 use the new equipment from the new alier?
Anyone else noticed that the lightforged armor is what's Turalyon currently wearing but with red streaks and some extra stuff?That's cool I guess.Also, I hope they're planning to give non-robe options to some Nightfallen classes. I don't see a warrior using robes tbh.
It's just pure laziness. I mean don't be naive and think at the end of the day we will have more sets than before. That will simply not happen. BoA will be another filler expac like WoD so they can work on another good expac meanwhile. I can already see being forced into stupid gothic skull armor crap for my war.
My main is a mage. I do not transmog largely because I have never found a combination of armor that I like more than another. I accept what I get and don't care much about it. I concern myself with the stats and let the rest fall where it may. There is one appearance though that I would definitely transmog to if it existed: a cloth armor set based on the coloring and detail of the albino drake mount. I think that the albino drake is one of the most beautiful designs in the game. An armor set, primarily white, with peach and teal accents would be spectacular for a mage but there is no armor or combination that even comes close. So how about it? Create such a set with details relevant to a planned Battle for Azeroth theme and I'll bet that more than just this cranky, old mage will be very happy.
Heritage Armor (Armor you get from levelling an Allied Race to 120) is planned to be only usable on that particular race. So if you level a Void Elf to 120 then you'll get a set of cosmetic armor that all future Void Elf characters can transmog to. However my Draenei won't be able to use the Heritage armor. Hope that's sufficient an explanation.
You can totally tell who actually knows anything about raiding tiers by how these comments are split between, aw man no more tier bonuses, the other side is, but...but muh transmog thoLike you hardly EVER see anyone decked in modern tier untransmogged these days. I see all these DKs complaining; go tele to ebon hold, and tell me how many people are in a full set of untransmoged gear. Let blizzard try something new and stop complaining about things that really don't affect you as much as you say they do.
Most people xmog anyway. I am more then certain the people in here gettin hot n bothered by these changes don’t even actually care after they’ve finished submitting the post on here.
Idk, I'm not super excited for this, plus it seems like it will lead to even more loot begging in PUG/LFR. I don't want to be reactionary, but I hope there are at least a couple set variations for the different classes. That said, I'm not holding my breath.
THAT'S IT! IM SWITCHING TO VOID ELF!...
All those people concerned about "class look", what's wrong with TRANSMOG into ANY of like 30 class sets already available in the game? With transmog system your look is not tied to whatever drops in current content, you can choose whatever you like from all those already existing. These days almost no one stays in raw gear anyway, most people that care about their look use transmogs.So think of it as a huge wardrobe, with new content not locking you to gear it drops, but rather adding something new to this wardrobe, something new that you can take or ignore. And from this point it is very logical: this wardrobe already has lots of class-focused looks - to the point that it might be hard to invent some new class-themed design - so now wardrobe will be updated with other themes - naga-themed look, titan-themed look and so on - for people that might like it more. And people that prefer class-themed look still have huge variety to choose from.
