I found out that I wasn't the only one who wanted to incorporate 60 PVP gear into their transmog and that there is a capped thread dedicated to it with a blue response and everything. 60 PVP gear is locked to most players by choice, note that I said most players, you can get a replica set at area 52 if you got the Grand Marshal or Grand Warlord PVP title in Classic, which you aren't told of in game as far as I know. So I was rather disappointed, not angry, that I couldn't transmog the gear I had purchased and never would. This is to make the gear more special and a sign of being a long time player. In short I was late to the party both on the discussion and the chance to get this gear for transmog.
I understand the point behind this, I simply had to play five battleground to get this gear while in classic you had to grind for it. But you also had to grind for the classic tier sets, for months even, and there is no lockout on them. So why is this gear so important? I would wager that it has more to do with the fact that it looks like it belongs to it's specific faction, which is also why many people desire it for transmogrification, faction pride. Blizzard, you say that you want both sides to be proud of their faction, well this gear would certainly help, you look at the 60 PVP gear and you think Horde or Alliance, this gear would do wonders for faction pride, you would look like a noble Alliance paladin or an honourable Horde warrior.
If you still wish to make it exclusive at least don't lock other players out of getting it. Make it so that instead of having to get a rank you have to get a large amount of honourable kills and play a large amount of BG's, and have to win one of each type. It would be a sign of someone who dedicated real time and effort into getting the armour without locking all but the oldest and most hardcore PVPer's out of it. Maybe even make it so that the armour has a different title to distinguish between the two.
Besides, how many players from Classic have the requirements to use 60 PVP gear for transmog? How many of those people use it? My bet is that there is roughly 100 at most, at least Alliance side. I don't think those 100 people would be too annoyed if others were allowed to use 60 PVP gear for transmogrification, at least no more than raiding guilds who obtained the highest tier of gear are for having people use classic tier sets for transmogrification at level 90. And if these 100 or so people are slightly annoyed, so what? They won't quit over it if they've been here since classic and you'd be making some of your player-base happier for it. Thank you for reading this.
Also, I'm not trying to be demanding, the last thing I want to do is come off that way, I'm simply making a request. At the end of the day I won't quit over this, that would be childish, and if you want to point out I'm on the MoP trial and thus I am incapable of quitting I will tell you that I am resubscribing when I get the money to buy the expansion. Besides, I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants this. If you would like to see the Classic PVP set's available to all subscribers show your support in this thread, if you wouldn't, tell me why.
