[Accepted] Transmogrification: Transmogrifying Legendary Items

#1 » Post by Nyeriah » 30 Apr 2016 03:20

Hello,

As a sub-feature and addition to the Transmogrification feature discussed and accepted [ HERE ] there was also the suggestion of allowing legendary items to be transmogrified.

At the current implementation, it's possible to transmogrify legendary items. However, it has been added to yet another conditional setting. In order to see transmogrified items, you'll need to enable the LTRANSMOG setting (".settings ltransmog on/off). While the setting is disabled, you'll always see legendary items as using their default model.

Much like someone that would have the transmogrification feature disabled by their choice, if you by any reason wouldn't like to see legendary items transmogrified, you can disable it and still enjoy the feature as it used to be, before this addition was implemented.

Seeing there are divergent ideas to what seemed to be a rather default approach, let's make yet another vote to whether keep it or remove the sub-feature. The voting will follow the same rules as the previous one to accept or not the transmogrification feature: in order to take a side, post either -1 or +1 and please justify your vote.

The "poll" expires in a week from now.

Personal considerations:
Nyeriah wrote: This vital principle hasn't changed. People were just given one more way to change their looks. And then again, I ensure it would also be optional. So those who enjoyed the initial concept without it would still be able to enjoy it without any loss. Once again, if you don't enable seeing transmogrified legendary items, you'll never come across this feature. Basically, once again, nothing has changed whatsoever to those who don't wish to use it, and that's why there wasn't a vote, I didn't feel it to be necessary.

Because it deviates completly from the blizzlike trasmog we were promised to have even tho you can disable it still isnt right.

[hide]Playing the "Blizzlike" card is totally irrelevant considering that transmog isn't supposed to be on patch 3.3.5a.
It is for TW staff to decide if, how, and when they want to have it implemented. They've already agreed to the entire feature + the option to make the entire feature be turned off by default (defeats the purpose of it in the first place but whatever).
Being able to mog one more catagory of items (legendary weapons in this case) is no exception and doesn't cause the sky to start falling, contrary to how many naysayers are making it sound.

You want "Blizzlike"? Then why is the feature here? I'll tell you why. It's here because the staff was finally able to implement it without greatly compromising their work so far and the community wanted it for a long time already. (at least that's what Nyeriah said earlier).
The concept of "Blizzlike" went out the window the second this feature went live. It was done because it's what the community wanted. And giving what the community wants far outeighs anything else. Why? Simple - the community makes the server. No community = empty server, which eventually = an offline server.

If you don't like it, turn it off with the given command.
If you want Blizzlike, go all the way or stop cherry picking at one thing just to justify an already flawed arguement.
I know this seems harsh but quite frankly it seems very hypocritical to me that people are okay with this feature but want to cherry pick or nit pick at one minor (and optional) aspect of it just because it isn't "Blizzlike".
Blizzlike will not keep the server alive in the long run - Adapting to the community's wants and needs, infact, will (provided it's done within reason without compromising the server's stability or turning TW into a total funserver).

Personally speaking, thank you for implementing it.

+1, its an entirely optional feature that is toggled off by default and needs to be toggled on, so if you don't like it don't enable it.

-1 from me. Retail doesn't even have this, dont add features that dont even exist.
Couldn't care less if its purely cosmetic and you can turn it off.
What next? cloth to plate transmog? its only cosmetic afterall, does no harm!?
If you want to keep this, add transmog between weapons (1h sword to 1h mace, 2h axe to 2h sword etc)
Also stop throwing around the "transmog is not blizlike so stop complaining about this change", this legendary transmog feature DOES NOT EXIST, its not the same thing, its an extra feature that has never been present on retail.

This doesn't really affect me as I'm never getting any legendaries, but I don't see the harm in it, SM and Val'anyr are fugly anyway so I'd mog them if I had them xD even if it's not possible on retail. +1 from me ^_^

No matter what, having transmog in 3.3.5 isn't Blizzlike so who cares if it's some "Blizzlike" rules from some arbitrary patch or not. We can disable anyway, so seems okay anyway (and it's even disabled by default).

+1. It's already not blizzlike so who cares.

If it's possible to disable everything then it wont affect anyone at all. :D
