    Nope - they are adding new items in the web store much more often than just on major patches. We got new pet 3 weeks ago?

    Is there another way to get that item he likes? There isn't, therefor he is forced to pay if he wants that item.
    There are many items in the store that I like, however I choose not to pay for them because I feel that pixels are not worth real money no matter how pretty they look.

    Sooo, why are we still supposed to be paying monthly subs when this doesn't cover all content? I know servers have costs too, but that's not 10 euros per person per month...

    WoW should just drop subscription already and embrace the "buy the game/expansions and then enjoy the cashshop" already.

    Come on people, what's all this QQ about? All the items in the online store are vanity items that don't effect your game play or character stats in anyway. Unless WoW goes f2p, the items in the store will be always vanity items. You don't like it, unsubscribe... oh wait you are too addicted to this game.
    Paying subscribers have more say to this than those that are paying nothing in F2P games. Im not too addicted to walk away when I feel a game is no longer supporting me as a subscriber ... but instead are adding features that I dont like to see in a subscription based game.

    Blizzard is not just triple dipping now. The stuck their tongue into the dip bowl and licked it.



    This is not a human tongue btw

    So... are Blizzard offering subscribers a choice if they want an ingame item if its only in cash shop? The definition fits 100% with what Blizzard is doing. They are forcing their SUBSCRIBERS to pay real cash for items that are ONLY available by paying extra. Many might find that unpleasant. Maybe not threatening ... but unpleasant and UNFAIR considering they are already paying money for just getting access to their character every month.

    the helms look really nice.. as a person who hates having to find a good helm to xmog.. searching for the perfect one that never seems to drop.. im not much for the flame crown.. but the other 2 look great. still depends on their prices.

    I have been trying to ignore most people in this thread, but I have to react to this.

    No one is FORCING you or anyone to do anything, at all, EVER.

    These are just like TGC items.

    Are you saying you where FORCED into buying trading cards now?

    Stop with the total utter bullshit.

    You are not FORCED to do anything.

    Is there really a Blizzard rep standing behind you with a gun to your head? Going "Buy This Helm Or I Will Pull The Trigger", that is what FORCING you would be.

    Just stop pls.

    I can understand that some people don't like the fact there is cosmetic items in the shop but please stop with this "I am forced to buy them" total utter bullshit.

    Here's a question for you (and I'm serious). How many TCG Loot Cards have you bought?

    Why are people getting so upset?
    If you think it's too expensive, just don't buy it?
    I myself can see all 3 fit my Main/Alts transmogs and will be picking them all up from the shop.
    Great job, Blizz

    You misinterpret the meaning of choice. Choice is when there are 2 or more items you can choose from. They can be either different in nature or fall into the same category but with different looks/specifications.

    For example, I have a powerful and pretty Toshiba laptop that handles WoW reasonably. However, there are even more powerful and prettier laptops out there in the market. Does it mean I am forced to buy more powerful laptops to play WoW? Of course not, it may be unpleasant and unfair (since I already spent money on Toshiba) but nobody is gonna hurt me if I don't buy another one.

    To the topic: Blizzard implemented head items for transmog. You have a choice here! You can either farm another helmet to transmog to or you can buy it from the store. Yes may be to you the store item is more attractive but you can still chose not to buy it (since nobody is holding a gun to your head).

    Back when the Celestial Steed was first datamined everyone agreed that this was the coolest mount ever, and the hardcores couldn't wait to parade this Algalon dropped mount (since it was so cool it just had to be from the hardest boss, and limited to the truly hardcore, right?) in front of their local AH.

    But when it was added to the store it suddenly became the ugliest mount they could ever imagine.

    The current plan for exp boost is Asia market, because they pay by the hour. They don't really bring in a lot of cash compared to an average EU/US sub, so something extra is needed.
