I can understand why some would be upset over this change but in a sense this does allow people to *earn* the replica armor versus having the armor handed out to the masses.
While I, personally, think it should be a given since you can as easily earn the original armor as easily as other items available for transmogrification. I recall in previous interviews with the developers that they did want to find a way to make these replica sets available to a wider audience.
(Now I need to find a dedicated RBG group for my holy paladin.)
Conculsion: Good change. Especially since the original restriction was not communicated until after the feature was first implemented, X-Mog that is. I mean, Transmogrification is for vanity purposes anyway.

Wonder if it will allow anyone with KC/Legionaire or higher access to all of the classic pvp gear (like it currently does for someone whose toon has said FoS) or if it will be rank-based a la how it was during classic WoW? I am thinking the former, although the latter would kinda be cool. Sadly it would also encourage more rating selling (since KC/Legionaire is the 1800 rating rank now, which isn't terribly rough to get).
Are alts of players who have these titles still restricted from transmogging to them? It's the only thing stopping me from playing my BE paladin.
i love this idea just for the fact it pisses off sooo many snowflakes lol
I'd like my old title to allow all my characters to get the replicas. :\
Bad idea to do this before they solved the RBG boosting issues, its a lot of players that have not earned those ranks in a legit way that will be able to buy the armor.
Being an oldschool pvper this is stupid and will piss off a lot of old players. If they are going to do dumb shit like this can I please have a free ashbringer and the 3 peices of t3 im missing too please? Oh and how about everything else that isn't in the game anymore. Free hand outs for everyone!!!!! Nice one bliz
While I do understand the vanilla R14's being mad about this I'm also kinda happy, being one of those who don't have it. Always sucks seeing noobs having this gear knowing I wont be getting it. In the end of the day rank 8 is enough to buy it, would've been worse if it was only the appropriate ranks (14 for Weapons, 12/13 for armor etc). And the RBG boosted people ain't making it better, now everyone will have it but ah well, boosts have been around for ever anyways...
OT: I do dislike the Blacksmith (Reborn) bullshit they're adding. (I don't have the weapons so don't even go there)
The gear is available right now, and they should leave it that way and leave the transmorg restriction on it. High rank pvpers already have enough perks with elite armor/mounts. Why give them access to transmog these items when they most likely never even played during vanilla. I have the TBC swordsmithing weapons as transmog too and they are giving those to every blacksmith now. Blizz needs to learn to leave stuff alone sometimes.
Oh and btw , to come up with atiesh and shit , those were REMOVED , you know... R E M O V E D !
The GM/HW NEVER got removed, not even once , everything you listed got REMOVED from the game. The GM/HW gear did not , what do you rather see? an great PvP player ( now , in this era) running around in full GM/HW ,or a just dinged lvl 60 hunter who has no clue HOW to even play this game yet and just rofl storms through PvE content with " your" precious gear..
You folks are just butthurt you won't be special anymore, fact is you never were.
Well, make legendaries transmogable if you are going down this road anyways! Why keep any restrictions?
- Guess t3 will be the only unique thing left in the game.
Besides, I'm out of bank and void storage space at this point. :P
OT: Level 60s get to run around wearing this gear after running what, half a dozen AVs? Heck, the honor could be farmed pre-60 so that by the time your toon makes it to 60, you can have the entire set ready to go.
Not sure why all the old rank 13/14 folks have their panties in a twist over this change. The title is where it's at, IMO; RBGs be damned. I only run my old pvp title on my old warrior (even though my shaman main has the same title available).
