What if the Blizzard Site sold items for Transmog?

Yes, but it could cheapen the hard work of obtaining a cool looking weapon/armor

They won't sell them, but they would be given out as rewards for Blizzcon or tournaments.

Seeing as people are willing to spend real money on fancy mounts and pets, do you think it would be possible for them to sell transmog items on the battlenet store?

I thought it would be cool if they did something like that for Blizzcon, but then it came to me why not just sell it to everyone willing to pay?

I suspect Blizz will do this sooner or later, and we'll see people in shiny glowy spiky armor everywhere in Org.

Pure cosmetics have zero effect on me whatsoever. People want to pay for them, more power to them

lol hard work.

Why should you have to 'work' in a game?

Yes they should sell them if anybody would buy them, why not?

It's not exactly buy to win if it's only for looks.

It wouldn't invalidate the 'hard work' of getting transmog gear any more than the sparklepony invalidated your ashes of al'ar.

you know goddamn well if blizz started selling transmog stuff, the hardcore players would insult and chastise anyone who has them like they do the store mounts already.

And they'd embarrass themselves in the process, just like they do already. Far as I'm concerned the gear is a memento of the experience, not the end goal of the trip.

Eventually they will do it. They are going to squeeze every dollar our of this game they can. It is just a matter of timing.

If i can turn my thunderfury into a real weapon i could see id definately pay for it. Anything else no
#10UnrivaledKoopaPosted 4/25/2013 3:09:17 PM
Hmm. Yeah, they'll probably do this eventually. I guess it's not a big deal. I wouldn't consider it rage-worthy or awesome.
