A few weeks ago, Matthew Rossi over at Blizzard Watch wrote a couple of articles about transmog and they made me think. What would I buy from the store for transmog? Why don’t I like the three helms they have available?
I think I don’t like the helms because of how stylized they are. Each one looks like it is a part of a larger set. You can not buy one to complement your transmog, you have to build an outfit around the helm. What I really want are simpler items that I can use with a variety of outfits.
I would like to see more flexible RP options in the transmog store. For example, some people use the [Crimson Beholder Eye] as a plate ‘eye-patch’ (even though it is a monocle). If I could buy and [Eyepatch] that came with ~10 different recolors or patterns, I would snatch that up. The same if true for generic hoods and goggles. If there was a bundled kit full of colors to match lots of outfits, I would be much more inclined to buy them. I would also love a hood/cowl/mask option that would automatically match the color scheme of my guild tabard.
The three helms they have in the store already could even be improved by simply adding a few tint shifts for them so we can make the helm match what we are wearing instead of the other way around. Jewel of the Firelord/Fel Lord/Frost Lord/Light Lord/Shadowlord anyone?
Right now the role-play options for plate wears is esspecially low. We have goggles now, but we still can’t wear eye-patches, blind folds, masks, most monocles, or hats. Opening these up across armor types would make me very happy.
