The butthurt is strong in this thread. On topic though, OP I think is trolling, no pun intended. He saysMeaning OP was aware of their existence before hand, probably watched the videos etc. If not, the resources were more than easily available to preview the item in game (WoWDB, Youtube Videos, etc). Not too mention, videos and images of these helmets appeared in the 5.3 preview stuff originally. For what they are, I don't mind them, and they're a 1 time purchase. They get mailed to all current and new characters on an account - Did you know most other costume items in other games are only by character, not account?when I came online today and saw that these new helms were available for purchase
Buy it if you want it, if you're not sure there's ample ways to preview the items before hand, and if you don't want it, don't buy it. The concept is as simple as it can possibly be, but people are up in arms for the sake of being up in arms. It's ridiculous, really. People are acting like spoiled brats "WAA THIS OPTIONAL ITEM I DONT LIKE NOR DO I HAVE TO PURCHASE EXISTS, WAA." Sorry, but that's all I see. This thread should be locked really. Someone made a mistake that was easily avoidable and came here to rant about it. If you like it, you like it, if you don't you don't. Simple as that.
