After the ""free"" period it will be just another store-exclusive item with significantly higher production value than most of the items you can actually obtain within the game. Doesn't really create the best incentives for Blizzard but they'll fucking do it as long as enough clowns buy this shit.
    Look at it this way. Blizzard, as a company, needs to make a profit. Not JUST a profit, but a larger profit every quarter. Now, one way they can do that is by expanding a system of optional microtransactions. Another way is by selling out more, making a desperate attempt and increasing the game's sales and subscriptions by pandering and appealing to the common denominator. The more these alternative measures succeed, the less 'safe' the development team needs to be to secure that profit. This leads to more artistic freedom and creative control for the dev team.

    Thing is $20 on it’s own.

    Clearly meant as a way to exploit the unhealthily addicted and whales.

    That’s what’s wrong about it.

    Otherwise, it’s not even cool or remarkable in a good way. Genuinely. It looks like bad holiday garb with wings taped on.

    Based on the number of comments I'd say a fair number of people are finding it remarkable...

    Cool, it's nice to be rewarded for being smart enough to save money on a product I'll be paying for anyway. Not the best xmog in the world, but I'm encouraged by the fact that maybe they'll be adding more to the store in the near future. I have no problem with cosmetic items being offered on an in-game shop so long as that's not the only way to acquire nice stuff. Spending money on things that you enjoy is the best use of money imaginable.

    A new transmog is available in the in-game store called Sprite Darter's Wings. This 8-piece set is available with the purchase of a 6-month subscription to WoW (most likely will also be given to those who currently have a 6-month sub). You can also purchase it separately in a new store tab called Transmogs.




    Fuck wept. I should have seen this coming, of course there's a new 6 month carrot to coerce more subs during the memelands delay
    Wrath baby and proud of it

    I know right? You know what will teach them a lesson? Don't fall for this, just pay month to month and in 6 months when Blizzard has an extra $24 of your money they will lower their head in shame and realize what a terrible thing they have done.

    Yikes. Didn't we have a 6 month thing like 3 months ago?

    Also what kind of degenerate misguided individual thought it was a good idea to show this off on an orc or a tauren, male ones at that?

    I don't think it'll be as excessive as you believe. Look at literally anything else in the store: I'd rather my in-game Glacial Tidestorm or Hivemind mount over a shop mount (of which I own most). I'd rather any number of battle pets over the ones in the store (as the store ones aren't anything great). I highly doubt they're going to make the good stuff only (or even mostly) in the shop. If it's anything like mounts, pets, etc, it'll be years before they even have six outfits .. and they'll probably be hit or miss.

    I agree, they need to hire TBC armor guy/gal back and make some decent looking gear. Instead they are going to go down this path of buying transmog gear.

    This however, looks like GRADE A SHIT.

    pathetic. have been playing this game since day one and my sub is finishing in 38 hours.
    THis is the first time I cancelled my 1 month sub of all these years.

    btw since I paid monthly for 16 years now? - I should be the most deserving to get any kind of stuff in game.
    1 month sub is more expensive.

    anyway just pathetic. I want this game prosper, see alive servers packed with people. i do not want to feel depressed looking for a guild after guild through 1 expansion. everybody quits. but this?

    guess, I will see diablo 4 and see how they wreck their own franchise and blizz I grew up with, owe so much will finally be dead for me.

    LOL And they model it on an Orc no less. Not sure if the marketing team are trolls or just inept.

    yeah but its a slippery slope
    putting their foot in the water,
    and eventually it will be like mounts, uniqe good looking mount on shop, nzoth worm recolor#8754 for doing an actual achievment in game. And soon it will be unique set from gear shop, or recolor from mythic raid

    I'm not a fan of the game shop on a subscription-based game, but if Blizzard is going to go full greedy, I hope they put the Brutosaur mount model on the shop. It's about the only mount in the entire game I'd spend actual cash shop level money on.
