That's just... I... just...
That is facepalm material, Blizzard. Complete, utter, facepalm.
This gear has long since become obsolete. How does it make any bloody sense to restrict it in such a manner, for a system introduced to make our characters look how we want?
Level 60 gear not useable for transmog!!!!!
In short, this is retarded.
<I posted this here because I noticed I'd posted in another extraneous thread>
But this doesn't change my last post, please allow this for all, not just us with the FoS, So many people want this, the chance to see battlegrounds filled with like minded players, sporting this gear, supporting their faction is too good an opportunity to miss, please don't!!!
The design intent with the Feat of Strength achievement requirement was specifically to limit these particular art styles to players who earned them through the OG (and relentlessly difficult) PvP honor system, while keeping the door open to reward them to more people in the future.
See, this would make sense, except:
1) People have been able to buy that gear with honor points for years now. There's no point in disallowing transmogrification when you own and can equip the original gear anyway.
2) Blizzard has already made available the thing that really mattered and really distinguished players who grinded out the old PvP system, namely the titles.
This surprise new transmog rule misses the point, IMO.
Funny, but that is how SWG lost so many subscriptions the day they announced the NGE after everyone bought an expansion...

Right, since we can't determine when the gear was purchased it's necessary to buy the new gear that is already implemented, should you have the required FoS.
This is beyond stupid. I haven't seen ideas this stupid from people that were trying to think up stupid ideas.
I just recently came back to the game, i'm now thinking of going again. Definitely not thinking about buying the pass anymore!!
I do see level 60-65's running around with GM gear but they don't have the rank? Makes no sense.
Sad to say but that was one of the most appealing items of this patch. The ability to use classic PvP armor and weapons.
Good thing I still have my tier 2.5!

I think half the people in this thread would... If it didn't require a title that hadn't been obtainable since Classic.
