I am still of the mindset that the color of the name and character plate is enough for me to tell friend or foe.Color-blind? Friends don't have a health bar above their heads, and your cursor doesn't turn into a sword when you mouse over them. I believe these are even quicker ways to identify a character. You can determine if it is aggressive first, and then in terms of PvP, still have a shot to guess it's class from a distance, because we still won't get Paladins dressed in Mage gear.The concept that you -need- the use the gear profile to determine if someone is Horde or Alliance has always been a bit silly, in my view. The races look different enough as it is, and the inclusion of items that turn people into pirates or skeletons or etc has been used to circumvent this anyway, forcing people to rely on the health bars or cursor change options.As soon as I first saw the picture of the Transmogrifier, I was very hopeful this meant I could make use of old armor sets, that we were getting rid of the silhouette theory, and that yes - we may just get cross-faction Pandaren to play. Quite glad I have not been alone in this TFH theory pondering, at least.
