Why no more heirloom transmogs?

They are still fairly restrictive about xmogs, and this was a way of circumventing restrictions.

If the situation were such that players could wear other armor types, or legendaries, or white items, etc... this situation might be different.

However, xmogs are currently not very free and flexible. They are still restrictive.


And your point?

As others have said there doesn't seem to be any logic behind this thinking. There is no bonus or gain from circumventing the restrictions. Was there?

Nothing like blindly defending Blizzard?

I guess that is how one gets those green letters. Being a shill. Not from actually helping the community. Which it seems that is the point of those green letters in the first place.

Now lets hope they don't nerf Disc anymore. =} (I would hate to see you go off on a tirade once again).


I do hope you are a child.

It should be embarrassing if it proves to be an adult who chooses to be so nasty and attack those who disagree with them. In my mind, I can half justify kids as not having enough experience to understand just how self-centered and immature they are acting, but it is disheartening when adults have to lower themselves to ripping others who just do not see things the same way they do.

I guess I am just getting tired of all the bullies here who think emotional intimidation equates to being right...and some of them sure do NEED to be right.

Edited to point out that you were viciously trolling someone who was agreeing with you, as well.

Have to laugh while shaking my head.

That's a great flaming troll, and I'mma let you finish, but...


Troll? No. You seem to confuse troll with those who disagree with you. Don't you worry though, many seem to make that same mistake.

Strange, I am not sure where you advocate for transmogging BoA's.

Seems you were just parroting off what you think Blizzard stands. Basically pointing out the obvious. Sure am glad we have people such as yourself to help out.

Oh wait, I must be trolling you still...

Congrats! You are improving. You recognized it this time.

If it wasn't intended for heirlooms to be transmoggable by higher level characters, it shouldn't have been an option when the transmogging first came out. It's kind of mean to give players something fun and then take it away.


IIRC it was only a bug that allowed higher level characters to transmog and then mail heirlooms without losing the mogged appearance - IE, it was never intended to happen, so they didn't mean to put it in and then take it out.

That aside, I totally support the return of the ability to mog and then mail heirlooms. It doesn't hurt anyone and it adds a lot of fun to low level 'mogging.

A level one mage shouldn't be in high level heroic warlock tier.


Level one mages are already using level 60 dungeon set one gear. That's what Dreadmist is.

That point is moot.

Why not?
Most of the tiers have a ton of model overlap in non-class-specific items, so it's not like a mage can't already look like a warlock or a priest if they want to. Most of the heirlooms that level 1's wear also look like relatively high level gear, so I fail to see why it's such a bad thing to expand our options when they have zero effect on gameplay.

Agreed! Transmogging is just cosmetic.

i could swear back in like wrath when i got mine from the tournament..it said something about if you enchant this item it will become soulbound or something like that..tied to that char..
heck that was so long ago it may have been about the ilvl stuff..
i just remember there was some warning about enchanting them..


I can almost promise that the warning you saw was that the heirloom would become Non-Refundable if you enchanted it...which they do. But they continue to remain BoA. :)

Which is rather sad, to be honest. There is so much potential with transmogs but there are far too many needless restrictions.


Yeah, I advocate for opening them up a lot more, if not fully.

However I think Blizzard's artistic-vision thing is still stopping them.


Well, we don't want to hurt the art team's feelings.

It's the same reason we can't make our shoulders invisible and don't have armor dyes.

I don't necessarily agree with it, but at least they are consistent in their policy.

I have to agree, it is purely cosmetic... it's not like I am handing my level one toon a 90 heroic.
It looks pretty, I enjoy it myself... wish Blizz would allow it, but as many others said. Blizzard seems to have a mad-on against fun.

I think they do too. I used to play Lotro for a few years and what I loved best about it was the wardrobe system - you could mix and match any armour types, dye them and any of your characters could access it from the wardrobe. Plus, you had several outfit *slots* on your character pane - you could switch as the mood struck you. Really wish we could have something more like that here.

With this policy perhaps (so far).

But the reality is that Blizzard has already swayed many times from a "concrete answer".

I mean they said we could never have a Ally and Horde toon on the same server. They said we could never transfer toons. They said no respects unless there is major changes to your class...and so on.

Reality is they have caved on numerous occasions on things they said would never be changed. Perhaps this is one of those as well.

But honestly as much as I would be for them just returning to the "unintended approach". Seems to me this would be low on the list of...

Things to retain or return customers to the game. Which is usually the case when they shift from a FIRM NO. To a..."Now you can have this thing you might have wanted".

Yes on the shoulders, incorrect on the armor dyes.

They would have to add a new armor skin for every possible color for every possible armor piece that exists in the game.

I don't even want to think of the bloat that would cause. Our WoW directories would jump from 30gb to 80gb or more in a single patch.

The game was not built to accomodate much customization. The base game code is too entrenched to change at this late stage in the game.

This is sort of beyond the point of this thread. When transmogging first came out, you could transmog your boas on a high level character and then send the boas to a low level character. So it was available. But Blizzard took it out later. Maybe with the relaxing they've been doing lately on boa restrictions, this might be something they could put back in?

It was a bug. They said from the moment they announced the feature in a blog post that mailing heirlooms would wipe their transmogrifications. It wasn't taken out, it was fixed. You just happened to like it better when it was broken.

Only thing i can think of, other than the vanity reasons for them removing this, is that it caused actual bugs with the items, in some way. I did it a couple times myself, loved being able to, and I wish they'd bring it back, but if it caused game crashes or interface derps, then I can understand why it was removed. As stated already, the fact that most items are really all that unique, or 'class limited' do to random raid drops or recolors, there is no point for them to limit the trasmog options for BoAs. The fact we can transmog them at all is nice, but while leveling, you don't find too many matching armor sets that look that good (at least I've yet to find any).

Legendaries should be valuable and cause heads to turn in town when they are current, but once their current-status has passed, they start becoming available to more people and the transmog restriction should be lifted because they are no longer as important.


I would rather see a system that would allow you to upgrade legendaries to current standards rather than allow them to be mogged
