Love the idea but I don't see blizzard ever doing it.
The Argent Tournament rewards were all specifically racial themed weapons. I still have those gorgeous Teldrassil silver axes with glowing moons on them I am going to mog to match as a pair in 5.2 (for now I use one of them in my current look).
We've also seen the datamined items in 5.2, like the rose covered DK worgen runeblade, and the Frostwolf Orc axe, and all those items which got us talking about this earlier in the week in the first place.
Not to mention Worgen starting zone gear, Pandaren starting zone gear, etc etc
Sentinel outfits, like those in art, in all armour types for my night elf toons and I will be a very happy lady.
You mean the skeleton filled swamp of doom where hungry crocolisks devoured countless new night elf adventurers as they made the harrowing trek towards SW? D:recreating the experience of being a night elf in Vanilla
Absolutely good idea. I would sooooooo love a dark leather coat and something like a gasmask for my Forsaken! And a green syringe off-hand! Or a twitching parasitic worm off-hand! Or a barrel with some homunculus on the back of my monk brewmaster! MWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!
Anyhow, the point is we have many sets that fit the class, but not many that fit a specific race. Even then, the 'racial sets' are usually limited to one single type of armour.
I really like the idea of faction/class/race specific gear. The only problem I would see is people would cry SEAS full of tears because they can't have a specific item.
I play an Orc and already transmog with inpsiration of Orc culture...I've got the Headdress of the First Shaman which is a great facsimile of the Far Seer's mask in WC3, and a lot of the Grunt's set matched up with some shoulders that look very much like the Orgrimmar guard's. cultural gear would be great, but I would actually just like to be able to grab sets that matched NPCs in game. Would love an authentic Orgrimmar guard setup and stuff like that. That all said, there really already is a lot of great xmg gear out there to be had. More would be better I guess...but there is something to be said for people mixing and matching and making their own uniqueish looks.
This would be amazing! I am a transmog addict. I would adore it and have wished for this for awhile now.
Really love this idea, and have thought about it a few times. The way I feel it should work is there are 2 types of set for each of the armor types (so 2 leather, 2 cloth, 2 mail and 2 plate) lets just call them set one and set two, lets use tauren as an example (as this is my favorite race and what first made me want this kind of thing in the game) so you play a tauren, you have access to set one, so does every other tauren, this means you can go to the thunderbluff quartermaster and buy a set of armour for one of the 4 armour types (for instance a warrior would pick the plate one) use this to trasmorg your gear. This type one armour will be SPECIFICALLY designed on a tauren model, it wont even fit any other race as they would never have it, because of this the art team can go nuts, interact with the horns, hooves, whatever they want and make it look very tribal, very native american, very tauren.
Now set two is accessible by all races that reach exalted with that faction, so you get exalted with thunderbluff as a blood elf, you can buy a set from the quartermaster (same as above, you pick the armour class that fits your class) these will look VERY different to set one and much more 'generic' in terms of wow gear, but will still be unique and one look will show you which city that armour is from.
I understand this is a lot of work (8 sets PER sub faction!) prehaps too much time, but my way of thinking is if its worth doing, do it right. If blizzard decided they wanted to do this and did it like this, it would use up a lot of time but would be a tremendous addition to the game, ESPECIALLY if released with the new race models.
I always thought it'd be cool to have a BOA transmog set for each race drop from Archaeology.
