I'd stand for that!
Go to Hell you Store Lover!
There's no legit reason to not have that. The people that don't want it wouldn't have to buy it, and the people that would like it can buy it. Simple as that.
Then there's the people that are so blindly against anything and everything that Blizz does, even though they're still playing the game for some odd reason.
I will continuously buy stuff like this just because I know it bothers people like you. I laugh at the self entitlement people like you bring with them.
So while you keep whining about petty changes that really don't affect you, I'll be kicking back and taking it easy.
Definitely not. It reminds me of something TotalBiscuit mentioned when discussing dlc and micro-transactions in games, you simply cannot trust the developer to not exploit the feature, especially if it starts to take in serious money.
Just my opinion.
I'm not going to distrust a company, especially one in which I have trusted for years, because other companies did some distrustful things.
I take your point, I do, but with the sub numbers dropping and likely their revenue, this would be a good path for them to go in. It's extra money people are shelling out for cosmetic stuff, which as a community we love, they won't see it as game changing so it won't bother them, but after a while it could definitely effect the game in a negative way.
I know I don't counter your 'might do' point, and I get that, I just feel apprehensive about them doing such a thing. I'd much rather have all the stuff in game, have Blizzard create some fun and interesting ways for us to obtain the would be store gear, instead of simply buying it on the store, it's less fun that way.
As long as they're fresh sets, I'd be fine with it. Whether or not I buy them myself is irrelevant but as long as the CM/Shaman sets stay exclusive then knock yourself out.
If they sell it in the store, I will buy it...whatever it is.
@Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.
I don't particularly care, but I'd find it ridiculously pointless to buy.
Transmog is about looking unique... buying store items defeats that in my mind.

Absolutely not. The more they put in the store, the less content they will be producing for the game, since the same people in charge of these items will be in charge of the gear we find in the game.
Even presuming it is false. The design model of transmog would be flawed for the worse.
There is one way to make people pay money for transmog in the store. And that is by making that gear more attractive to the players than the other gear available. That is done either by spending less time on the other gear and less resources, or by spending more time and resources on the shop gear. The first alternative is far more economical and would be the logical route to take for a company.
By taking time and resources from "regular" gear, it would not only be more cost efficient due to not having to hire additional personal, but also it would increase the value of the shop gear by reducing the value of the regular gear. It is a win/win for a company only interested in profit.

I am so tired of seeing terrible people, being admired, for being terrible people.
