Blizzard, you know full well that all standard plate wearers were unable to wear plate from levels 1-39.
You know full well that we were forced to wear MAIL armor for those levels.
You also know full well that sets such as Scarlet Mail Armor were made for warriors and paladins.
I understand no on plate to cloth.
I understand not allowing plate wearers to look like hunters.
But, a great majority of MAIL Armor levels 1-39 was MADE to look like plate because NOBODY could learn Plate Armor Skill before level 40.
So why won't you allow level 1-39 mail gear be transmogrified onto Plate? Why won't you at least give some exceptions to the rule for Plate Classes so we can wear item sets such as Scarlet Mail?
There really is no justification here. The argument of "The person still needs to be recognized as a plate wearer" doesn't hold water in 1-39 mail cases, because of the design of the plate classes and the "warrior/paladin" mail armor that are levels 1-39 and made to look like it's half mail/plate for Warriors and Paladins.
Seriously. Give us some exceptions, or put a level 1-39 mail exception to the transmogrification concept.
