As VO comes in, feel free to enter bug reports for things like the following:

  • Sound files that cut each other off during a back and forth conversation (sometimes we get the duration wrong so it'll become a shouting match)
  • Sound files that don't match the written text
  • Sound files that can't be heard from a reasonable distance

Good call. We'll address this. (craig_amai)

PvP
with the removal of honor in Legion, will we be able to purchase old pvp armor for transmog with gold?
That's one option we're considering, but haven't made a final decision yet. Rest assured, they'll be available somehow. (WarcraftDevs)

any plans for gladiator mounts and titles to finally become account wide? Only seems fair with all the account wide pve stuff.
No such plans, no. (WarcraftDevs)

Will item level matter regarding stats in low level PvP?
Yes, in a similar manner to max-level PvP. The stat difference will be considerably smaller. (WarcraftDevs)

As a major transmogrification and PvP enthusiast, will there still be "Elite" transmogable gear for PvP in Legion?
Gear awarded at higher rating will continue to have the "Elite" designation and appearance. (WarcraftDevs)

will pvp tabards be account wide with the new transmog system?
We have no plans to change how the PvP tabards are bound. (WarcraftDevs)

Transmogrification
Sorry if this is a repeat: all items from completed quests are auto-added to wardrobe. Does this include Draenor treasures?
You will get credit for any one-time treasures in the same manner as a quest. (WarcraftDevs)

    Hunter set looks really good it is subtle but got a lot of detail and colour. IMHO a lot better than t18,

    The hunter set looks more like plate to me. Whatever happend to good set design for me the good sets ended after Ulduar.

    Hunter set looks good, just wich it had a different color scheme. A dark greenish / black one WITHOUT that gold in between would have been great.

    Loving that hunter set, those armour pieces look more like carved wood to me than plate, which fits the theme nicely. The colour schemes lend themselves well to each race as well.

    The hunter set looks a bit inspired on sylvanas armor and the wrath pvp sets. I like it though.

    Am i the only one who gets a very "Sylvanas" vibe from the purple version of the hunter set?

    Instant kill a lore hero, so we can use his legendary.
    I'm afraid for Thrall - enhancement shaman video is comming.

    Definitely seeing the Sylvanas inspiration from the col. scheme at 0:20
  1. Leare315's Avatar
    Yeah, definite sylvannas vibe from the mythic version, i guess the rest of the gear is Valeera inspired? It looks awesome either way, i especially like the red/gold two toned version.

    Looks more like a mix of wood, scalemail and leather to me.

    They match the color scheme of the MM artifact (first and second form which are the base and enhance versions)

    I'll be honest, that Hunter Armour looks very Rogue-ish with the hood with glowing eyes and shoulder pads having a skull inlayed on the Mythic Version. Without the Carapace appearance and the eagle emblem I'd say it would be hard to tell what class this set was for. Although I was expecting more like a mountain hunter mixed with Vykrul sort of thing, it looks alright.

    Looks a bit like the Diablo 3 demonhunter.



    The cowl like helmet, v shapes on the chest, decorated belt buckle, upper part of the pants, embedded circles on the shoulders, small rounded shoulderpieces in general etc. Even the colored eyes are there.

    Was hoping for more of a difference between Normal and Mythic, oh well, just shows I shouldn't get my hopes up.

    I wish people would read that one line just above the armour before posting...fyi here it is; Today we are taking a look at one of the armor sets we haven't previewed at all yet, Hunter Tier 19. It shares some elements of Sylvanas Windrunner's armor design.

    So, yes it's MEANT to look like Sylvanas' stuff, silly people :P

    Anyway, looks good xD

    Hunter sets look absolutely horrible.
  1. Lobosan's Avatar
    Oh, wow! A Hunter set that fits with a hunter aesthetic (there are feathers and scales in there, and wood textures too, so anyone claiming it looks like plate must be blind), makes a callback to a favorite bow-wielding lore character's armor design, AND does it without resorting to overbearing pauldrons?! Well, sign me right the hell up. It's about time our sets got some love! (Because let's face it, even Blizzard knows the last one looked like a half-assed set of questing greens).
