    It's always bothered me that the models they use in the pet store could be implemented in game. It used to be much less frequent as well. They would maybe add a mount or pet every 6 months or so. Now there's a new thing to buy in the store every month. Only gonna get worse for here on out.

    This is clearly just to make up for the major loss of revenue from less transfers because of virtual realms.

    On my grand armored wyvern as we speak. I love it.

    If I were a troll maybe I'd ride that bat.

    I will take my Pureblooded Firehawk over anything in the store. The Sha of Anger mount is pretty awesome. The new Eng mount that lets you fly in a goblin shredder is more awesome than anything in the store.

    Getting sick of this argument. Without cosmetics this games just a load of maths and RNG, the cosmetics ARE what makes it a game and creates the world. Infact, now we have transmog, cosmetic appearance is JUST as important to a lot of players as the quality of the armour.

    Speaking as a Rogue, our latest PVP AND PVE armours have been PISS poor for a long time. Ranging from "really lazy and not thought out" to "a fuckin horrendous mess". Last season we had to look like someone had emptied their KFC leftovers over our heads. Blizzard actually designing cooler armour to sell for an additional cost is an insult.

    This is MEANT to be a Pay to Pay model. With Blizzard trying to have a F2P model at the same time, and getting every penny they can from players, is IS a pisstake and disrespectful to those with subscriptions, even if you aren't using that armour.

    Exactly, people pooping their pants because Blizzard is expanding a cosmetic-only cash shop? Wow. As long as earnable mounts etc are still good quality (which they have been) and it isn't P2W, whats the big deal...

    Once I get my hands on that xmog helm, I'm going to be so OP. All the hardcore raiders will be wasting their time doing raids, because this will replace all BiS slots hands down. I even have Blizzard at my back door making threats that if I don't buy any of these they will take my first born. /sarcasm

    Going to get that mount for sure. Looks #neat

    This is just another stepping stone towards more micro transactions, that eventually aren't simple cosmetic items etc.
    I for one would prefer that they didn't waste their precious time by making all kinds of things to sell, even if it's just cosmetic. And instead use their resources on the actual game.

    Heck after pet battles where added, you get some actual benefit. Other than cosmetic/fun from buying the store pets. Several of them are very good.

    "oh chill, it will never happen"
    Don't be so sure, remember all the things in the past that they said would never happen, but did anyway ?

    And down we slide the slippery slope from XP buff. I don't want to see this crap in my subscription MMO.

    Mind if i bookmark this and quote it in a year or two when you're proven wrong?

    Otherwise, Blizzard lost its soul a long while ago so they can keep milking all they want, its way over my head at this point.

    ive been saying they should do this for a long time. i dont much care for the fire eyebrows but ill buy all three assuming they are for all characters like everything else. might fit in a transmog later on

    I'd get mad. I'm mad at myself everyday for spending money on graphics. I log in, and see that character list with my toons and I'm like, I pay for those, why god? Why!

    It is a rational response. Rift which is a FREE game has a cosmetic cash shop but ever single cosmetic bit of gear can also be found free in the game. I don't care that there is transmog items for real money on wow but there should also be a way to get them in game as well.

    Also what rogueMatthias said is how I feel. Especially being a rogue this xpack.

    I look forward to mocking you in a year or two as well.

    They are charging you for unique and high quality (unobtainable) models. In a subscription based game where they have a large emphasis on cosmetics. Challenge modes are an example of this, they offer high quality armour sets for completing difficult challenges. By adding gear into a micro transaction system, its just inexcusable. Especially when you already pay a subscription.

    Its a bad path they are going down, so far its just been getting worse.
