    GM/HW Replicas (at last)

    Edit: Sincerely, not too sure I read it too fast. But... the actual items were available to purchase to everyone. The replicas were the only ones locked before, so... it's the only thing I can conclude.

    Considering snowflake factor, letting alters xmog the replicas will have made happier. But this would work too, so let's share the love.

    I'm usually not the kind of person that likes being a special snowflake but this change made me incredibly mad even though I have a lot of other items that aren't available anymore...It's still PTR, so I hope they get rid of the change before it goes live but I doubt that's gonna happen, meh...

    Love it! I am not a hardcore pvper, do not have a special title but I like that they reward the ones that do

    I am not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, I agree with it, but being that I have my Commander title from Vanilla, I have been able to transmog the PVP gear all along. The sets will get a bit more common overall, but will still be unique enough I suppose.

    Just get used to it. It's happend before, and will happen again. Reskinned mounts, easier PvP titles... list goes on.

    I personally do not wear these, but this is an horrible idea. High rated PVPer are already rewarded with better gear (won't be the case in 5.2) and a slightly different looking gear. It would have been better if it was something innovative that would have held the role of "cosmetic rewards" instead of just throwing in old PVP gear transmog and removing a bit more more of the "uniqueness" the game still holds.

    Bad idea is bad.
    There's NO valid reason to take away that bit of uniqueness of classic pvpers.

    I like this change. Even tho i do not pvp as much as i used to and wnt get GM any time soon
    Classic pvpers might not approve this but however, It is not like people are getting it for free.
    Those titles arent exactly easy to get and never mind that you will always have the Feat of Strength from vanilla.

    Kind of rude for "Vanilla" players to try and block people to get a gear set that they might truly like.
    Alot has changed since Vanilla so stop acting like you are a hurt victim.

    Kay. Where can I get my Atiesh? My corrupted Ashbringer? My Necro Knight's Garb? My black AQ drone?
    I mean, it's kinda rude to block me from getting them, isn't it?

    People need to accept that they can't get everything just because they like/want it.

    Sadly enough exactly the latter is the case.
    And before someone comes up with some accusations - I don't have access to the rank 14 weapons on my main but will have after these changes so in essence I would "profit" there.

    i do not get how this works.
    so in order to use the weapons i need to have "Grand marhsal" from rbg. as for the gear i need to have "Field marshal" ?
    or is everything usable once you get Knight+ ?

    i was thinking the same, by the looks of things it'll go by ranks. Cant even remember how it went tbh its been that long.

    I don't care either way, the whole GM gear transmog is so boring anyway.
    I don't get why people would give 2 shits if some other player looks like them, so what you earning it in vanilla, I bought it in BC with zero effort, why should people be excluded from buying it just because they didn't play during that time. I'm sure getting these titles will take more effort than it took me to get the whole gear set.

    Don't really care that much about this change, though the GM 1h sword and staff are nice transmog choices for weapons.

    Just registered to say: i felt special having these and now i dont anymore.

    You can already get the gear for HP, you just can't xmog it. If you really want to look like that, you can just throw on that version.

    Nor is it against any rules to votekick a member from the group - one person can't do it, apparently someone agreed with the rogue.

    That was the first thing I though when I read the change.

    "Hey, we've recently had the worst season in regards to win trading and paid boosts in RBGs for far. What do you think we can do to remedy the situation?"
    "I know! let's give RBG win traders/boostees HW/GM gear for getting to X rating"
    "I don't know... Won't that kind of encourage that behaviour yet again?"
    "It'll make players feel compelled to play through our poorly thought out and implemented system, what's not to like?"

    I don't understand to this day why they're so hellbent on keeping it restricted. Just open it up for everyone already. When you have most level 60s running around from farming AV in HW/GM gear... It's time you sorta realize this is just silly keeping restrictions at this point.
