It seems The toon will need to own the items, it also seems that you cannot make mail look like plate so that rules out a lot of the best looks for me.
A few clarifications please, is the appearance tab on you or on the items?
Can I use boas for the skins and do it on boas?
Will this be available to us pre lvl 85?
I realize I'm a twink and you are not really concerned about twinks, but i HATE wearing the hodgepodge of gear i have on, it is unfortunately all BIS so heirloom changing is important to me.
And has any thought been given to the items we no longer have because we vendored them after giving up in despair of a appearance tab? Many of these were quest items and we can no longer get them because we already did the quest or the item was removed from the game.If you intend to limit this to only item we have as it appears is there any chance you could re introduce items from old content? If the items were re introduced on a vendor (just the skin with +1 spirit) for say 500g or more or something similar I think you could avoid the flood of 100000000000000 gm tickets this will create. If you broke them down into 4 vendors cloth leather mail and plate it wouldn't be so bad to find the one you wanted,.Heck put them all on one vendor i don't think anyone is going to complain about wading into the sea of 4000 pages lol.
Also the "must be same armor type/must be armor you can use" is an unfair restriction to classes that start with one armor class and move to another versus those that always use the same armor class.
Anyway even with all the down sides great work! I will be spending ridiculous amounts of gold to make myself pretty. Glad to see this!!!
Edit: i saved my S2 armor on my old shaman, because it was to EPIC to give up, this caused me to stop playing him at lvl 75 due to not wanting to change his gear, so i understand those of you who have grandfathered skins wanting to keep em, but really think about this, If i made a new shaman i couldn't get that gear on him as it stands.
