So, about that button to disable transmogrification

Because I prefer watching the real game, instead of some random kid's idea of a funny outfit.


Sadly for you blizzard decides what the real game is.

Not you.

Welcome, to the real... game.

Nobody can tell you what the warcraft is, you have to experience it for yourself.

I mean... what's your game?

Luckily we still have a PTR and are involved in a process where we can actually try and get things changed.

You have already gotten an answer from a blue in this thread that renders your argument "I dont want to see ppl wielding fishes in dresses" argument as invalid.

I don't want to see them wielding farmer's brooms either, I want to see how strong people are based on their gear. Like the game was designed to do. I want to see the gear that matches the actual raid it's from as well.

What I don't want, is the playerbase to do the artdirection for my game.

Look, I wear a Fishing Hat and a Fishing Pole, hopefully that's not too silly for you.

On a more serious note, what about adding a button to disable the ability of others to disable your transmogrified outfit? After all, that button is only there to disable "funny looking" outfits and what if I were like... dead serious about my outfit? Come on, I'm like the most serious fisherman out there and would even dual-wield fishing poles if Titan's Grip would allow it.

You can't override the choice people make for displaying their cloak or helm, either. And that's the only comparison that's viable! They choose how they want their character to be displayed within the boundaries of the User Interface. Of course it's pretty much silly to wear a hat which nobody can see. Or a cloak. After all, these items are not invisible, yet the individual player can choose freely whether he wants it displayed or not.

The same freedom of choice should be given regarding transmogrification. There will be a (rather strict) set of rules as to which items are eligible for transmogrification, which is enough to keep the silly outfits in line. You won't be able to cover it all, but then again... what's wrong with a (deadly serious) troll warrior dual-wielding fishing poles?

Edit:

The art is in game. The players will not be allowed to be displayed in weapons or armor which they can not wear otherwise or which they did never obtain. It's most likely that transmogrification will be disabled in Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds (which has yet to be determined, but I suppose so). And you can still see the power of any given player when inspecting him and hovering over the items with your mouse. Or just use addons like PlayerScore.

As for the art direction of "your" game, it's all art that is implemented and available. You are confronted with it every day. Players hang around in full T1, T2, T6, T10, SX, D2 or whatever set they like most in OG or SW every day. You effectively force players who choose transmogrification for displaying their style for the whole gaming community to not use transmogrification at all, but instead carry that stuff around all day long and put it on whenever suitable. Which is what they are doing now. And why transmogrification and Void Storage are being added. And why there is no sense whatsoever in requesting such a button.

Sadly this argument as always.

Is invalid.

This isn't your game. Stop using your head as a suppository and realise this game has more than you in it.

I'll be making a ticket each and every day until I have that button.
I've allready seen everyone run around in al tiers. My character has progressed 6years and wants to see the progress in the world around her. I pay Blizzard to make new art and give me a new sense of progression every expansion/major patch.


1) There is no negatieve effect for moggers if you give players this option. They can mog, we can have original art. This way EVERYONE gets what they wanted. That's perfection.
2) Anyone who ever played an MMO with such a freedom in custom character design, allready knows that the player base will be making rediculous and very ugly designs.
Most of them just want to stand out and it wil end with everyone wanting to be very shiny and bright with ludicrous items. I'm 100% sure this will be the result because it has been like that in each and every other mmo with custom clothing. WoW players won't be any different from all the other players.

No, you pay Blizzard for access to the servers. No more no less.

As you know, armour types will also be locked, preventing tanks in cloth dresses for example.


Of course, plate dresses, now that's another story... You know, like the paladin tiers.

He said fishes, frying pans and the like. What do you want? For him to link every dam item they are planning on not making avaliable for transmoggi. You are just sounding sillier and sillier for every post you make mate.

It´s no use Alice. This guy clearly has the "whole world revolves around me" complex. The same as the OP.

Not only a waste of their time but a pretty sure way to get an account infraction sooner or later for GM harassment even.
I strongly advise against any such behavior.

You mean like you guys, who don't even want to give a few people a button to disable circus-mode? Do you actually have any arguments at all, about why this would hurt you. Any at all?
Are you afraid the majority of players will disable the results of your transmogging? And if you are, wouldn't that mean the option itself is a bad one?

You read the first ten words of my post and then skipped the rest of it.

We have already said that making a disable button would make the servers more laggy as every armor set have to be loaded twice on the server, Once for the transmoggied version and once ofr the original. What you are asking is for them to make the game more laggy for EVERYONE to appease YOU and the small group of ppl thinking like you. So yes asking for blizzard to change a patch just so it will suit you does in fact count as "whole world revolve around me" complex. =)

Good gosh. We've seen your arguments, you've seen ours (even if you haven't accepted them as real arguments like some have to yours).

Can you just restate them to refresh my leaky memory, then?

We've already stated that it's likely certain items will not be available to transmogrify, including fish as weapons, and other items such as frying pans, for this very reason.


So frying pans are OK to implement and use while leveling if you get them as quest rewards, but continued use of them at maximum level is suddenly something that needs to be forbidden. I don't really see the logic.

And while we're at it what about rolling pins? Will I be able to make my
Cookie's Tenderizer to look like Cookie's Tenderizer again?
