    Transmog Changes in 5.2

    Is it just me or is the upcoming change a bit unfair for several classes?

    I know it's only a cosmetic feature, but if you look into the details, caster classes, hunters (they already have this option) and possibly rogues don't have any benefit from them. Shamans are the only ones who have a small benefit, because they can use maces and axes. So a caster has virtually no option to transmog a specific weapon type into another one.

    What do you think? Would you prefer a small overhaul in weapon accessibility? Maybe one handed swords for priests, maces for mages and axe for warlocks for more options?

    I would love to see a sword for my priest.

    Blizzard would have to many tons of changes and spend many resources to different items for each class tot use what.

    To make this unfair you have to MAKE it seem that way. You're basically claiming that different classes having limited access to armor and weapon types is unfair if you want to go down this road, which is absurd. This is nonsensical.

    Not everything has to be fair for everyone. We'd all overall get less that way, in the long run.

    Plus as a caster I'm very excited about the upcoming changes ... they're changing (nearly) all previous caster weapons from main hand to one hand, meaning I can finally xmog my Rigormortis from ICC onto my Loshan from Terrace

    "completely useless?"

    You can still transmog your REGULAR items anyway.

    Blizzard isn't taking anything AWAY from these other classes, they're making it LESS restrictive. It's just that they're not making it "less restrictive" for you necessarily.

    Can we finally enable legendary transmogs if you acquired said legendary during the proper expansion(or vanilla)? I'd love to rock my Val'anyr again. I'm sure it'll never happen...
    Don't blame the casuals for making Warcraft worse. It's the unskilled masses who refuse to improve themselves and Blizzard who has decided to bribe these folks with an endless shower of purples that should draw the ire of both casual and hardcore alike. It was never about "seeing the content" for these people it's always been about the gear and their sense of entitlement.

    Are you a mage/WL? Then yes. Swords are affected and you get more to choose from.
    Are you a priest? Move along, nothing new to see here.

    I think this is what the OP is calling "unfair".

    While it is true, I am disappointed that I'm still restricted to ugly maces (there are so few that actually look decent <_< ), it's a thing I can live with.

    Yeah it's really unfair... They're adding a new Monk spell, it's really unfair since as a Paladin I can't use it.

    No it's not. You don't get it. It's only unfair because certain classes only use certain weapon types.

    The only way to change this would be to let the classes you think are being unfairly treated use weapons they aren't intended to be using.

    You're the one who is being unfair actually, but it takes some really amazing metacognitive abilities to see it, which i can get for you for the right price.

    Casters are going to need something other than transmog, because weapons just don't matter for them. Warlocks got a neat new option with their fel fire chain.

    Hunters are in a good spot for transmog, pets are something that could have greater customization tapped, though.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    I was so excited to turn my ugly mace into a awesome/transmog fitting Dagger. Not to mention the countless times i did the Black Temple Instance for the Dagger. Implementing A Feature I can't even use as Priest...Awesome,well done.

    I'm very surprised about those rageposts....

    Just for you: The changes in 5.2 are completely useless for several classes, because they don't have access to weapons with the same animations (the main requirement for transmog one weapon type into another). That's it. You can't equip a dagger and transmog a wand over it.

    Granyala got the point. While other classes are able to choose their favorite weapons for transmog, others are still restricted to a weapontype they probably don't like, but wear it because of it's stats. This is by the way the entire reason for upcoming change.... to have options.

    Okay. Listen. Please.

    These aren't rage posts.

    These are posts that don't agree with your opinion.

    And since you're being rude, stubborn, and not listening, the responders to your thread are doing the same, including me.

    Start using logic and stop insulting people, please.

    Meanwhile Cloth Casters have had acces to a lot of fun stuff like Pirate Hats and what not through Transmog - and no other classes can do that - UNFAIR!

    Well is the same with priest, now all maces will be one-hand so now you have more options of maces (my main is a priest), the same with daggers (I don't think you will use a dagger... ever, unless you're lvling but meeehhh)

    Only a handful of caster weapons are onehanded.

    Maybe i was not accurate enough:

    Feature = Patch 5.2 changes, not the entire transmog feature.
