I'm really glad they held this back for months.
I like this system.
It kind of makes sence they would hold this back until LFR Jailer. Final boss dead, reward content open. At least its not gated behind requireing a kill on a specific character to use.If the bronze dragonflight had access to something like this, and used timewalking badges as a currency, I think it would potentially become one of the most used legacy mechanisms in the game.If it were only active during the timewalking events and specific to the showcased expansion perhalpsI like that if you need 1 peice of LFR gear for the xmog you could potentially farm lower level keys for the slot needed. Only thing we need now is a way to get weapon xmog too ;)
I know a lot of people will like this but I think the value of appearances (especially the mythic appearance) is lost if they can be obtained without ever stepping foot into the raid by doing something as trivial as a weekly 15 key. They should have just separated power and cosmetic parts of the tier sets obtained through catalyst or something like that. Gonna be interesting to see how will they deal with this in the future (if tier sets stick around which they probably will).
Do we know if the item keeps the transmog it's upgrading out of? For example if I convert a 249 item to get the LFR, and I then valor it up to 272, will I keep the LFR and Heroic version?
how many more posts about creation catalysts are you intending to release?
If only I could use rank 7 Legendaries to transform to tier (even if it transformed to lover ilvl then 291) - it would cost a lot, but at least I would get decent pieces in slots I want instead of slots Great Vault RNG gave me (that is NONE usable for tier).And we finally found use for Sandworn Relic gear - its for getting LFR transmogs
This is great news! As someone who will probably do only heroic sepulcher and m+ dungeons I am thrilled that I will have the chance to obtain mythic tier transmog without having to wait for a new expansion.
What’s when I upgrade an item from 249 to 278 (I know you can’t this way) will I have all appearances? Wouldn’t be cool if the previous moggs get deleted :D
If only I could use rank 7 Legendaries to transform to tier (even if it lowered ilv below 291) - it would cost a lot, but I would be able to get tier at slots I want WITHOUT relying on what piece Great Vault gives (which is NONE piece usable to transform to Tier)Also finally use for Sandworn Relic gear - its to get LFR transmogs.
