I know it's not for wotlk but whats the harm in a new option for those who like it? I myself hate cata and other expansions.

The harm: Applying a new option like Transmog to WotLK will infuse input lag in the game. It's not meant to be a transmog into 3.3.5 and when you are going into a raid with bunch of people re-applying new outlook of their items, it will cause your internet connection to download more data from the server to load on your screen. I've witnessed such upgrade to 3.3.5 server and it will bring some small troubles too, like: taking some time the items' visual to load or not even load and have visual bugs.
Even though, the transmog system I've seen had some additional tokens that dropped from bosses in ICC and VoA to be used for mogging and to push people still going into those raid zones. Lowering down the drop rates of such tokens will probably reduce the amount of people doing the transmog. (Ulduar shards drop rate = gucci) :)

Personal opinion: DO NOT apply Transmog! If you want to role-play just go and farm your items that you like and wear them to show off in Dalaran. DO NOT bring useless and unnecessary visuals into raids, please!!!

There is no harm having cosmetics in a 3.3.5 patch server.
It could certainly be introduced in some cool way and it would definitely increase donations as well as bring new players and reinvigorate the experience overall.

The... 'argument' that cosmetics were not a feature in wotlk makes no sense. Consider this, locking 5mans behind raids most certainly was not a feature in wotlk, and yet it exists here. And that's ' alright ,kind of. Which is more 'game breaking' having an item equipped cosmetically or entirely blocking people from doing 5 man dungeons? The former of course.

Why you naysayers keep rejecting this fine cool thing also makes no sense, do you actually not grasp the positive implications?
Is a great idea make it happen and this donor right here will continue to donate!

It would be great if it was possible to just let people have Transmog on the secondary server since this is such a divisive issue. Maybe limit how accessible Transmog even is. There are many ways to do that and there can be a balance here between Transmog as it was in Vanilla and a way to have a more subtle Transmog but the mods don't seem open to new ideas. Oh well.

I personally think Transmog would be great. Never played anything after TBC before playing WotLK on Dalaran (currently at lvl 31) and i've heard about Transmog and it sounds like a great feature. I personally hate the design of late game gear and Transmog would give more flavor and more things to do to each player. I'd much rather look like a Paladin or Death Knight from WC3 at lvl 80 than some dude straight outta Final Fantasy or some Anime.

Yes, it seems that Transmog does affect the price of low level items, but they can always make Transmog harder and more expensive. Maybe Transmog could even be a donation-only feature (not much different from all the unobtainable gears and mounts - pay 10 bucks, you can change your chest armor or your gauntlets). The whole point is that Transmog being a simply cosmetic feature shouldn't affect the gameplay and the feel of WotLK too much. If Transmog is limited to donations or something similar, it would be very easy to control the risk that Transmog affects the economy. Maybe even make it so that the "transmog" feature isn't in game but through the website, only accessible with donations letting you pick some model from WoW to substitute your current piece of equipment, completely eliminating any risk of Transmog affecting the price of low level equipment.

They're not open to things that are not wotlk blizzlike, which makes sense since this is a wotlk blizzlike server.

Nah fuck off with the transmog meme. Not happening, more players will leave the server than players would join because of the implementation of such a useless thing.

Don't start this all over again, please!

If you want to show off with retro gear go farm it and AFK in Dalaran with it. Never bring useless outfit into raid. Nobody cares about it while you have a massive boss models and spell details who make you look insignificant.

Introducing some mechanic to " wear" cosmetic items would be awesome... monetize that through the store somehow and I'll bite no problem.

I was offered to play here. I agreed. And enthusiastically began to develop my character . I've thought up an image of how he will look. My professions have reached 300/300 and I was preparing to pass the portal to the Outland...

But what do I find out - on the server no transmog!

Leather of the highest level looks ugly - how can i play now ???
I do not know, maybe use Leather level TBC which I like.

I do not see the point of playing if your character looks UGLY!

The server will never step over 1000 online, until you enter in to the game transmog!
This will not affect the balance of the game. I DON'T UNDERSTAND why it will be not put into play!

P.S.
I have a suggestion. Enter it as a function on the site at shop like buying item for donation points / vote points.
The server is good, sorry for my English and but enter transmog.
Thank you for attention.

Albeit not an WotLK feature,transmog COULD (atleast temporarily) give new life to raids like ulduar and naxxrams with a couple of simple tweaks.

You could implement a system that would work on daily/weekly quest basis (similar to weekly raid quest) which would grant transmog token that is used in combination with the item to transmog your current item as a reward for killing the last boss of an instance.

This would certainly give some incentive to raid outdated content like ulduar,eoe,OS and give the dalaran afking bunch of 6k+ GS people something new to do while also making finding raids for those instances much easier for fresh players needing them for progression.

You know what is now like official servers? There are good and bad ideas. I suggest taking a good one. And you do not force someone to do the transmog. We offer only the opportunity to do this for those who want.

Current state of pve is very non blizzlike anyway,plus the restrictions are hindering new players.

As for other part of your comment,yes i'm sure that will happen,however i'm sure there will be atleast couple of spots in each group for less geared people to join (having 5-6 spots for ulduar a week is infinitely better than having no groups at all,from the perspective of a fresh 80)

I pretty much have full RP gear (t6.5 from SWP), so I could definitely use transmog. I don't really care for it. It would be nice but it is far from a requirement.

THAT being said I have to counter argue the whiners here saying this is a blizzlike server.

1. Certain classes still have issues with class mechanics.
2. The attunement system was not present in WotLK. It is made to gimmick the fact that raids got gradually implemented in the game. But at one point in WotLK there were catch up mechanics, such as EoT gear from vendors and ICC heroics dropping loot that could get you into ICC.
3. Due to one bugged mechanic or conscious choice, end bosses on the raid tiers have always been overtuned. LK25HC on this server is harder (in many ways) than it was on retail. TOGC was a lot harder than it was on retail. Remember full block gear tanks?

The server is not blizzlike, because they do in fact follow blizzlike mechanics for most of the things, but selectively change stuff to fit their own agenda. That is the trademark of a server with custom content. I don't mind, but you cannot cry "Blizzlike" every time someone suggests something.

The server is ofc not fully Blizzlike yet. But it is the servers own words quoting from the website description:
"a true Blizzlike server that keeps the original essence and quality."
Transmog isnt a part of that!

1) I would rather have they spend there time on this instead of something a minority (I assume, without further knowledge about it) of the players would like.

2) This is far from Blizzlile but a good way to firce ppl through all content. And it is stated everywhere that it is how the server works.

3) As in one there are work left to be done. And I think the dev people have better things to spend there time on it.

So stop spending time on this subject before all WOTLK content/classes etc. works as intended....

Spending time on what? All content is released barring RS(which no1 really cares about) and people are getting sick and bored of the server.The policy of keeping it 'blizzlike' is killing the server off,slowly and surely.New players are discouraged and easily give up when they're unable to get on the same gear level as the rest of the server - something has to be done in order to keep the current population and gather some new people (make new people stay).
