    So these new helmet cost 12€ in Europa store (something like 15$)

    http://eu.blizzard.com/store/browse.xml?f=c:5 (sorry this is a French link I'm french). It's 12€ per helmet and not a pack, isn't that too much expensive ?

    Yeah I have to agree, £10 per helm to me seems a bit expensive for what they are, however I am guessing they will sell. I'm glad they didn't make a helm I like so far Plus I'd much prefer spending money on pets and mounts over mog gear!

    They're out already? o.O

    Also £10 is a bit higher than I was hoping for a helmet. £4-5 would have been my maximum.

    I would give 1$ for that helm, not more. They want 1 month worth time for 1 shitty helm? That greed...

    How does this work though ?

    You pay for a helmut and it's mailed to all characters ? Or it's like a heirloom that you have to mail over to the character you wanna use it with ?

    Aye 4-5 was my estimate too, or what I felt was a reasonable price at least. But yeah they are live on the blizzstore now for 10 quid each!

    As far as I know every character gets it. Since you may have a horde or alliance character on a different server.

    They are mere 2€ more expensive than pets.

    Yes, they're probably a bit more expensive than I thought, but considering the fact above, it's not really surprising either.

    From the blizzstore page:

    "This cosmetic item uses your head slot, has no stats, and works across all races and classes. Use the NPC transmogrifier to replace the look for your existing helmet!

    Once activated, this in-game item’s key applies to all present and future World of Warcraft characters on a single European Battle.net account.
    "

    that price is disgusting, and I can only see it getting worse as they add more transmogrify items.
    £1-2 per helm would be far more acceptable.

    Thats pretty damn expensive. Sure it carries across all your characters, but chances are you won't want to use it on some of your alts anyway just because it won't look right (Flaming helm on a rogue for example). £10 is also **MORE** Than the 1 month subscription (£8.99). For £10 I'd expect a full gear set to be honest, but maybe I've been spoiled by DotA2's cosmetics.

    Weren't the mounts like 20 euros or something? If so, how can you be surprised lol?

    yeah £10 for an entire set sounds ok, but £10 per item is just awful, even for blizzard standards.

    So they went ahead and ignored all feedback without even providing blue responses or anything? Greedy fucking shits.

    How dare they charge £10 for freaking helmets. Couldnt have any less respect for Blizzard right now.

    Guess it just comes down to the individual For me personally I feel mounts and pets are worth the money, but the helms not so much, each to their own

    The helms will sell I have no doubt of that, they just aren't as attractive a purchase to me than say a new mount or a pet, I do wonder how much the hitching post and see-saw are going to be though, I don't see them on the store right now.!

    Blizzard has successfully copied the marketing paradigm of WoW private servers that sell gear for $$. Good marketing strategy, there will be tens of thousands of fanbois who will rush to spend their money.
    NINJA TURTLES as the next playable WoW race/class combo. WoW has got Kung Fu Pandas, Pokemon and recently even Transformers in it, so I don't see how Ninja Turtles would be any less pathetic than current "WoW" is.
