I dont dislike the flashy stuff that much. It's just that after you've started raiding mc and onwards, it just got flashier and it is something they are intend on keeping up.
If every set is some molten piece of rock, lightnings flashing and stuff it just loses its "ooomph" feeling.
That's why it is awesome that we're now possible to mog pretty much everything.
what's even better is that 98% are prolly moging the popular tier sets, namely t2,5,6,8,10 and 12, so transing into something halfway realistic and not so aloof, makes it all the more unique and cool when you go through all that item-model searching and end up with a design which probably no one else ingame has.
And i guess the best feeling ever will be when you get a set together out of random parts and people go all "oO dude awsum where can i get that?"
Though that can be tiresome as well .
