I don't think it is true that blacksmiths wouldn't wear there armor for show. If you look throught history there are plenty of examples of armor that is never meant to be worn into battle. I also think this points out the fact that it doesn't make sense for the best weapons or armor to be hand-me downs that you pick up off the dead corpse of some enemy.

As a keen historical re-enactor, one of the things which has always bugged me about RP in wow is just how damned uncomfortable it is to wander around in armor.Decorative armor (as opposed to battle armor) is a bit better, as it's rarely anywhere near as heavy. But you wouldnt wear it into a fight, as often the decorations will emphasise weaknesses in the armor.Unless you want to RP having crafted a magically strengthened incredibly light set that doesnt see you sweating in the sun or as soon as you exert yourself, then freezing when the sun goes behind a cloud and the wind whistles through the gaps in your harness, then most armorers would regard you as crazy for walking around in plate.I think it would be nice to see some decorative recipes added to the game for RPing, so that we could make something purely for show, not for the stats.
