Why no more heirloom transmogs?

General Discussion
Does anyone know why Blizzard got rid of the ability to transmog an heirloom and then send the transmogged heirloom to a lower level alt? This was something that I really enjoyed doing when transmogging first came out, and I was sad when Blizzard took this away.
Because it wasn't intended.
I was just thinking about it today. Does anyone know why it wasn't intended? It was a great feature.
Because it let players circumvent other transmog rules, specifically those about the character needing to meet the normal use requirements (level, class, etc) on the items in question before being able to use them for transmog, and the whole "you have to actually have this item" thing.

I wonder why they made those rules, though. It was fun having my level 19 priest running around in this dress and the Firelands staff. It wasn't hurting anything or anyone.

Because those are the rules you have to meet to use the items normally. The whole purpose of transmog is to allow us to wear gear we can already wear without gimping ourselves with inferior stats by doing so, not to do away with equipment requirements.
A level one mage shouldn't be in high level heroic warlock tier.
They are still fairly restrictive about xmogs, and this was a way of circumventing restrictions.

If the situation were such that players could wear other armor types, or legendaries, or white items, etc... this situation might be different.

However, xmogs are currently not very free and flexible. They are still restrictive.

Which is rather sad, to be honest. There is so much potential with transmogs but there are far too many needless restrictions.


Yeah, I advocate for opening them up a lot more, if not fully.

However I think Blizzard's artistic-vision thing is still stopping them.
You can only transmog your items into items owned by the character doing the transmog. However, I wouldn't mind letting everyone transmog anything. I like some mail sets that I wouldn't mind mogging on my plate gear.

I guess they just want low levels to look like low levels and not level 90 raiders.

And your point?

As others have said there doesn't seem to be any logic behind this thinking. There is no bonus or gain from circumventing the restrictions. Was there?

Nothing like blindly defending Blizzard?

I guess that is how one gets those green letters. Being a shill. Not from actually helping the community. Which it seems that is the point of those green letters in the first place.

Now lets hope they don't nerf Disc anymore. =} (I would hate to see you go off on a tirade once again).


That's a great flaming troll, and I'mma let you finish, but...

I SAID I ADVOCATED OPENING UP XMOGS.

Troll? No. You seem to confuse troll with those who disagree with you. Don't you worry though, many seem to make that same mistake.

Strange, I am not sure where you advocate for transmogging BoA's.

Seems you were just parroting off what you think Blizzard stands. Basically pointing out the obvious. Sure am glad we have people such as yourself to help out.

Oh wait, I must be trolling you still...

Pucifer, I know you have your agenda against me, but please at least read the thread.
