    Illidan skin for WoW in non-combat

    Seeing all the different skins for Heros, i've been wondering. Wouldnt it be cool if you could aquire Boss skins or other major NPC skins and wear them in a non-combat situation.
    Kinda like Transmogrification
    What do you guys think. Who would you pick?

    Although newb, newbie, noob, and n00b all have similar definitions, there are key differences amongst them. A newb or newbie is a new user who has an understandable lack of experience; a noob or n00b, on the other hand, is an unskilled player who is not a newbie and should know better

    Bad idea. I have no interest in seeing Illidan and Arthas walking around the Shrine.

    If you want to do that. go to owned core and find a client side model morpher, at your own risk. Don't have other players deal with something insane like Deathwing in Pandaria next to Wrathion

    Do we get the size of the boss we impersonate? Because of that's the case I'd take Gruul's skin obviously, I'd be the center of attention in any room I enter

    Do people just no longer care about immersion?

    No. I get sick of seeing giants roam Shrine using whatever methods they do now.

    This would be terrible. Even some of the more out there pets and mounts make me roll my eyes, we don't need custom skins like that in WoW. It suits a game like HotS well but not an MMO.

    That would be the opposite of cool.

    No the size of the toon will stay of course. Imagine the lag of 30 full size deathwings in town

    just use tmorph
    You kill or you die. Or you die and you kill.
    Tell them only that the Lich King is dead and that World of Warcraft died with him.

    Though I would have to ask just how you enter the room like that.

    Immersion is personal, and can vary dramatically from one to the next.
    You can't say that a change will make or break immersion for everyone, only your personal experience being affected.
    If I don't enjoy something, it isn't immersive for me.

    First you wanted transmorg.
    Then you wanted subraces.
    Now you want to play as a boss in the game?

    What the fuck is going on with the playerbase.

    I dont know what the deal is. Have you guys forgotten noggenfogger elixir.Wearing holiday customs. That was a blast for everyone. Whats the differens. Also it can be made so not EVERYONE will obtain it. More like a reward.

    bad idea.

    What could possibly be the in-game lore to drive this?
