    New Engineering Item Idea

    So maybe not engineering but it'd seem like something they'd make. I know the logistics of adding this would be insane but imagine a pair of goggles that lets you see through other people's xmog. So we could see how people really look in their gear. THEY still look the same to them so it doesn't effect anyone but you. Thoughts?

    I don't really understand the point. You want to see peoples ugly mis-matched gear rather then a nice matching set (even if its generic rogue Bloodfang over and over...)?

    exactly. Half the time I forget what I look like without xmog. Nothing more than a novelty.

    Interesting idea, although I'm not an engineer I support this idea, it could be cool use those glasses in Orgrimmar or Stormwind...

    Uhm, by the way, your thread reminds me something... check out this: http://www.darklegacycomics.com/364.html

    Doable, but if made, it would probs be a vanity item (white)

    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    wouldn't be a problem if it was like the mist piercing goggles.

    Most likely wouldn't be, if I would guess. It would be something like the Jr. Engineer goggles.

    Idea reminds me of one of the dark legacy comics


    A bomb/grenade where everyone in range is temporarily untransmogged for a few minutes could be fun though.

    The reason for me would be to easily identify who has low gear and who doesn't. Nowadays all I can do is look at a person his HP. And even that doesn't say much because they either can be: PvE geared with more HP or actually decent geared.

    Reminds me of those beer goggles we can get during Brewfest (which I love).

    I'm not all that interested in what gear others are wearing, so much as whether they're performing to a reasonable level. If they're not performing well, I don't care why - I just dislike them. Then I go about my day. Still - if it makes you happy, I won't object. The grenade idea sounds more fun to me. Perhaps limit it to people within a certain radius, and once they leave the area, their gear returns to mogged glory. Like the party grenade and train set, the people "controlled" would regain power over their character at will.

    Sounds like a really fun novelty item that would be QQ'd about to no end and so would never see the light of day.

    What would there be to QQ about?

    what would be the point? So you can use it as an excuse to prejudge players based on the gear you see them wearing and prevent them from trying to gear up?

    [Hyperuseless Eyesore Viewers] would be a fitting name for them, considering how horribad raid sets look in MoP. Really, there is *zero* point to it. Inspect and shift click their equipped gear to see how it looks.
