    I think you're missing the point of this thread.

    Reading the very first post helps. Reading only the thread title doesn't.

    Please read before posting next time.

    To everyone else, why is it such a concern that Blizzard have released these items? I noticed a lot of people said they'd get them if they were $5 etc or that game X, Y and Z are selling skins/etc for less than the $15 that Blizzard are selling these for.

    So from what I can tell its not that these exist, it's that they're too expensive. If that's the case, then we have a severe epidemic of entitlementitus going on here, if you can't afford them then don't buy them, it's as simple as that.

    They're statless vanity items which serve nothing but to change the appearance of your character. Blizzard have been including vanity items since the very first release - the collectors editions, these seem to have been accepted so what is the difference?

    This really is getting out of hand, Blizzard is starting to rival EA with the DLC. Disgusting buisness.

    It's pretty funny that people supporting blizzards disgusting actions by buying these helms get screwed over by getting a half broken item, lol.
    I wonder what that thing is where we could buy pets and mounts years ago already. hmm... maybe it was all in my mind.

    How about behaving like an adult - and using an appropriate wording?

    You will also be let down when 10 other people around you at any given time have it also.

    Dunno, profanity (oh the horror!) is pretty much a core of our speech here.

    To be honest, I don't see what difference it would make if the item had stats on it. Let's say it's a piece of heirloom gear that goes up to 85. Would any of the people saying 'But it's just for cosmetics' still be for it, or rather, not against it? It certainly doesn't change my perspective on it.

    How can you not see the difference between items with stats and items without stats o.O One clearly affects your gameplay while the other doesn't in any way.

    I would absolutely be against the items if they had any stats on them at all. From my perspective at the moment, these items are no different to the vanity pets you received with a collectors edition - they're purely aesthetics. As soon as Blizz cross the line and add pay2win items then at that point I'll gladly express my outrage. Until then people are getting all upset at something that has been in WoW in one form or another since the release back in 2004. Perhaps the people saying they'll quit due to these items being released should never had joined in light of that?

    if you put stats on it people will start complaining about it turning "pay to win" regardless of what levels the stats work for

    So everyone silently agreed to purchase normal looking item sets? Because tier sets from Woltk till now are so wrong...yes their best artists are on Buy to play items..now we know it.

    The crown is a crown, the horns are a pair of horns.
    The only actual helmet is the Hood.

    How exactly did Blizzard mislead anyone by correctly labeling the items in their store? Because people saw a screenshot and didn't bother to look beyond the spell effect - those bastards.

    Were you this outraged when the TCG stuff was released? Or when vanity pets which were only available to collectors editions or Blizzcon attendees were available?

    Don't get me wrong, the armor sets since TBC have been awful imo, it makes you wonder on what internal changes led to their decrease in quality (but this is all my opinion of course). But do I honestly think that THREE helms have tied up any artistic talent long enough to be detrimental to the sets currently under development? No, because that's a foolish notion and it smacks of hyperbole.

    Essentially, we've always been paying for gear. Through expansions and subscriptions which give us content patches.
    Omg mindfuck.

    Please elaborate on how Blizzard is starting to "rival EA with DLC"?
    Is it because they offer cosmetic items on a store seperated from their game itself?
    Perhaps it is because they expect you to pay them for their games altogether?

    Hahaha that's what you get for being a Blizz ass-kisser and let them dickslap you over the face with every single shit they were supposed to do anyway out of sub money.
    And to think the same pricks that had the nerve to defend blizz when they introduced these on the store are now crying like little bitches. Suits you right.

    Keep it civil please.

    I dont even feel bad tbh. If you wasted £10 on those stupid cash grabs then you deserve it. They obviously didnt test them in the slightest, there was a few days between announcement and implementation.
