    Yeah, I agree with this. I actually have bought mounts in the past, but I won't be buying into pets or cosmetic stuff. Unless they bring back a Corrupted Ashbringer model, and then I'll be all "TAKE MAH MONEYZ!!"

    And now we know why there is no resources left to create 5 man dungeons - It's time spent on money grabbing scams like this. I already pay a subscription to the game, I should not need to pay more to get cosmetic items which have been developed and paid for with my subscription money.

    To be honest, i don't like those helmets and this new mount.

    So, no danger with my money. XD

    How short-sighted can people get?

    Micro-transactions are great, so long as they don't break the game. A lot of people pay for this stuff, and Blizzard will make a ton from it that goes back into creating more game content.

    How can anyone be opposed? If you don't want to buy anything, fine, don't. But at least see the obvious benefit this will be to the game as a whole. What Blizzard invest in this they get back a thousand-fold.

    They will probably put in a lot more of them, to introduce variety. Unless the amount of complaints is enormous; in that case they may not continue with this at all.

    Any smart customer would not support this... Use your brains people, stop throwing your money at Blizzard before they start selling (old) tier-sets too...

    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.
    This is exactly the point. It's not about "if it's cosmetic or not", it's about taking things that should be included in the subcription fee and charging extra for them.

    Nobody really knows how far this is going to go. Just look at SwTor - you have to pay extra for additional hairstyles, races and quests on top of subscription fees. Is Wow going to end up like that? Are they going to try to boosts store sales by putting less cool stuff into the sub-only game?

    Yeah, but Ghostcrawler says it's too costly and time consuming to create new art for dungeons! The art team must have been hard at work for all the new items that are going to be rolling out the next few months.

Especially when you already pay a subscription.

    Its a bad path they are going down, so far its just been getting worse.
    WoW has most often emphasized the importance of stats on gear, not the looks. Until the shop has stat gear, it isn't a big deal; meanwhile GW2 adds an item to Black Lion chests that grants a level/skill point but people say its ok because its a free monthly game :P

    Even though I don't play anymore (thankfully after seeing this) I still think this is shocking and hugely hypocritical of Blizzard. Over the course of MoP we have heard the excuses that they can't make 5 man dungeons because they take too long mostly due to the art and new player models are taking a very long time because the art team needs to find the time in between creating new content. Then all of a sudden they magically find a lot of time to create cosmetic items for the cash shop? Yea...

    Don't quit, just /spit on players wearing the transmog headpieces and go about your day because nothing will change

    A lot of Pandaria fun items have 10-30 minute cooldowns.

    So far everything they show in the pet store has a 3 minute cooldown

    Thanks blizz

    Don't know why people are so upset/annoyed by this. Many saw it coming and it's not really detrimental to the game. It gives Blizzard extra money which continues their ability to develop the game. And for people who pull the "its just more profit for them", what the hell is wrong with that? If you were in their position you'd want as much profit as you could make too. Shouldn't put others down for doing the same.

    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.
    Yea, you can put it right a long side the quote of people saying the same thing about the guardian pet, or the ones saying the EXACT same thing when the celestial steed was announced. I'm pretty sure that according to people like you i should have been able to buy fully geared max level characters a few years ago.

    Man, I'm kind of hoping that they do this now just to witness the outrage.
