Until now, each tier of content brought us more diverse fashions of gear, but not always with the same strategy.As an example if you look through the BC gear you'll notice as there are diverse gear models ranging from character level 61 to 70, allowing for more diversity but also leading to it basically. If you check the models for WOTLK gear you'll notice that gear tends to use the same models from 71 to 80, leading to a more uniform look of characters'overall appearance.Blizzard's strategy about gear models seems to maximize uniformity during the level up process to reduce the clown effect on players at the beginning of new expansions, while going easy on fancyness when coming to the wave of purplez at the level cap, but still with an eye on uniformity when it comes to specific tiers (think of how items of the same level basically match the fashion and colors of the tier set for that same level).This was true until now. Transmogrification will potentially reduce the necessity for "badass" appearance on new gear, which might as well never be actually shown if players end up not liking it. If you check some of the ilvl 378 gear from Dragon Soul instances they do not look very "special" looking.Do you think Transmogrification will reduce the amount of "pretty" new models we're goin go see in the future content releases?
