So, I’m playing WoW again. Yes, yes, forever alone and all that jazz.
One of the first things that I found out about was that you can “transmogrify” old gear; basically, you reskin an item you’re using with a different model.
Huh, neat idea.
I hook up with some other foreveralonesters that are playing and find out that you can use the old warlord gear if you had sufficient rank in the old system to purchase it. Needless to say, my little goblin shaman is now rocking it like I’m back in 2006.
Evidently, there are lots of people who think this is unfair. People that didn’t play when WoW was actually cool want to be able to pose as true bad asses when they’re really just feeble newbs.
I honestly don’t know why this restriction was added anyways, considering transmogrification was added long after they have changed their philosophy to “we will not remove things any longer”.
Honestly it feels like a double standard. One one hand, you have awesome mounts like the Amani war bear, and the ZG mounts, unobtainable. On another hand, I’m sure all the “Glory of… raider” achievements since ulduar haven’t been removed at all, allowing people to still go after those mounts, even though it was much harder to do when the content was current.
Then you have stuff like the Hand of A’dal titles, which have been removed “because they would become trivial”. Except that if you kept the quest in your quest log since BC, you can go now, faceroll at 85 and obtain the title in a trivial manner. I’ve personally helped 2 friends obtain the Hand of A’dal title at level 85, yet somehow I’ll never have the chance to get it, because you know, it was removed in order not to make it trivial (except for the lucky few who kept a quest they had no chance to complete back in BC. Apparently for THOSE people, it’s ok to trivialize the title).
Look, people. In 1967 you could buy a sweet ass Camaro for under 4 grand.
Now you have to pay like a zillion dollars to get one like it came off the showroom floor.
Deal with it, you fucking newbs.
