And btw? Blizzard doesn't need to defend adding helms to the store and they don't need to defend adding more glyphs. Especially not to people who post whiny crap like this pointless topic. People have asked them to make more fun/minor glyphs and they have. Don't like it? Tough.
Also, until you have a job working for Blizz as a financial analyst, I'm pretty sure you don't have a clue what our subs 'pay for'. So please, in the future, talk out of the correct end of your body when posting here.
Believe it or not, paying $15 a month doesn't entitle you to bitch and cry about everything Blizzard does. Its THEIR game. THEIR store. THEIR development time. Therefore its THEIR choice. Too many people, like yourself, think of this as owning stock in something... 'they get my money, therefore I have a right!' when no, actually you don't. You might spend $20+ a month at a specific restaurant, doesn't give you right to run behind the counter and bitch and piss and moan about every little change they make to the menu. Nor does it mean they have to defend those changes to you.
Ugh, this community - a word that I use lightly these days - just makes my stomach turn anymore. Some of you will cry about ANYTHING.
"OH.EM.GEE. Blizzard changed the color of the 'play' button on the launcher. THIS IS COMPLETE AND UTTER BS, I LIKED IT THE WAY IT WAS BEFORE WTF BLIZZ? WHY U R CATERING TO THE CASUALS AND RUINING MY GAME I HATE WOW NOW ROFLMAOWTF!!! **
** how idiotic some people here sound when they post.
I understand that it's your opinion, and many other people's opinion, that your $15 should let you at leave have a chance at having whatever you want, but that's just not how it works. It hasn't worked that way with mounts or pets, and I don't understand why the reaction is so large to the addition of statless, "useless" gear. The philosophy of paying for access and then paying for bonus things hasn't changed, and people seem to suddenly think that they are being slighted because of helmets.
It's extra optional junk... Blizzard doesn't really owe anyone anything other than good customer service for the game itself that someone pays for. Maybe they should add to the game but increase the monthly price for all the extra features people have been given now at no extra cost compared to years ago.

Are they going to sell glyphs in the cash shop?
You are getting something new for free and bitching about it.
Just quit. You'll never be happy on WoW and you'll never be happy in this life with that attitude, the least you could do is be considerate enough to not expose yourself to the reasonable public.
I don't see why people are complaining about the helmets. If you don't want them, don't get them. Simple as. If people want them, they'll buy them. Nice handy money for Blizzard to make money. Seeing as....well....Blizzard is a company and companies are there to make as much profit as possible.
Personally, I don't want the helmets. Therefor I won't buy them. But I won't complain about them being there even though they will not interrupt my enjoyment of the game in any way.
No, Blizzard will never defend themselves like that, NEVER, if they do they are just leaving themselves a gap for the trolls to dig into.
They'll simply say that the subscription fee is ONLY for the upkeep of the customer service(they've said that a million times already), and then they will go on and nag about how the stuffs on Blizz store will not affect gameplay and is optional.
They will never give a direct answer to our questions.
The thing is, glyphs are already in game, scribes would be cheated if they were bought on the store.
The new helms on the other hand are the first time Blizz has done the "no armor type", which is EXACTLY why it's better they sold these on the store. It's not only a good way to test this stuff out and it's popularity to see whether to include more of it, or if it's better suited to in-game purchases/achievements due to the amount sold, but it also is much better suited to the store just because of what it is.

Gonna put it right out there:
Putting an item on the blizzard store makes it less cool. Automatically. But if people want to spend money on it... more power to them.
And moving on from that:
First, your point about "they're making glyphs to compensate for the helms" is inane bullshit. Blizzard doesn't need to "aesthetically compensate" for anything, and I see no reason for them to start with "well here are some glyphs." There have been cosmetic glyphs in the game for a while; long before these helms were ever datamined. Players like cosmetic glyphs. Blizzard put more cosmetic glyphs in. Is that so damn difficult to understand?
But to address the larger point:
Blizzard has not stopped making "cool items" because they made three helms that were datamined two patches ago and just now made it into the game. Did they stop making cool mounts after they put in the sparklepony? No. In fact, Invincible, the mount EVERYONE seems to resort back to referring as "the cool mount" came out AFTER the Celestial Steed did. That's right. Invincible could very well be a REMODEL of the Celestial Steed (they all use the hippogryph skeleton anyway.) And since then we've had the firehawks, pterrorwings, sky serpents, and a myriad of other cool mounts that have come out and are obtainable in-game.
And now, because some people think that some of the PvE tier sets look "weak," Blizzard is OBVIOUSLY never going to make cool armor again, because we'll just cover ourselves head-to-toe in helms, right? Of course not; it'd be stupid to "assume" that, just like it was stupid to assume it for sparklepony.
