In the above thread in General, I outline the fallicies in Blizzard's broad spectrum treatment in limiting level 60 PVP sets to vanilla Rank 8 players. Being a Rank 8 myself on another character from vanilla, I have issue with Blood Elf Paladin's iconic Blood Knight armor being transmog limited to paid transfer Alliance Rank 8 Paladins who transferred factions. While people like me who have played Blood Elf since TBC release can't transmog a set of armor that not only was added in the game post-vanilla, but was created specifically for BE paladins.
Basicslly, Blood Knight armor (added post-vanilla) is locked for transmog except to those who had Rank 8 Paladins in Vanilla. Due to the fact that Only Alliance could be paladins in vanilla, the only Horde toons who can currently transmog this set are Alliance Vanilla paladins who later paid faction changed to Horde paladins, i.e tying a set of armor that was added in TBC (specifically FOR Blood Elves!) to a vanilla requirement (when Blood Elves and Horde Paladins did not exist).
Alliance Draenei Shamans do not run into this problem, because their level 60 PVP set exists visually in transmoggable PVE equivilents, whereas the Blood Knight armor is a unique set that exists nowhere else in the game.
Fellow Blood Knights, speak your thoughts in the thread above! Thank you.
