Okay, seriously, this isn’t what this post is about, but OMG folks, did you SEE From Draenor With Love today?
Look carefully at the face of Velen in panel 3.
No, I’m not going to show it to you, go look at their site and come back, sheesh, lazy pockers.
Is that, or is that NOT the most perfect WoW version of the infamous Picard Facepalm of ALL TIME?
I want Vidyala and Rades to put that image, blown up, on the front of a t-shirt.
That is good enough for the majority of us, but for the hardcore, I’d request the caption “Velen says, What part of No Eat Self don’t you understand?”
Okay,okay, back to what this post was about.
Shit, the digressions are longer than the actual posts around here.
So, okay, OMG this idea just came to me and I’m so excited! I just know I’m the first person ever to think of this!
We all know and love transmogging our gear and weapons in WoW these days.
One drawback we’ve got right now is the enchants are handled kinda funky.
Some weapons have inherent glows that overwrite whatever enchant you put on em, other weapons don’t have inherent glows and you see whatever enchant is on the actual weapon, and there is no current way to ensure that your mogged weapon will look exactly the way you’d like.
As an example, I have an agility polearm on my hunter. If you respond that hunter melee stat sticks are going away in MoP, I’ll ban you. The point I’m making as an example is that I mogged my polearm to look like the Hellreaver, a freaking wicked all-red polearm that looks great with my full Firelands set.
What looks goofy about this picture though?
The problem is, Hellreaver doesn’t have an overriding glow, and the Hunter best in slot polearm enchant is the Mighty Agility, and the glow is, well, it’s great for a Druid but for an all-red Firelands set, CRAP!
So, and yes I am the absolute first to ever suggest this, why not simply set it up so that whatever glow your donating weapon has is what goes on your mogged weapon?
Let me enchant Fiery on the Hellreaver, giving is a burning fiery glow, and THEN use it to transmog my Kiril, Fury of Beasts?
Goodbye crappy green glow, but retain the FUNCTION of the Mighty Agility!
Okay, okay, everybody else thought of it too, it’s obvious. But this is my attempt to get it back in front of Blizzard while they are still working on mists.
And just think of the money sink that buying old low level enchants would bring to the transmog market! Hey Blizzard, another benefit!
Oh please oh please oh please
