Yes, but this can be resolved by a very, very simple mechanic:
Everyone who is allied to you can choose to see your 'appearance gear' or your real gear.
Everyone who is your enemy can only see your real gear.
And ofcourse, in the character tab for inspection you can still see the regular gear stats, and not of the 'appearance gear'.
And NOW I want Blizzard or any of you to repulse the idea once again!

Efflorescence even suggest to be called like that:
Jun 27th 2010 6:50AM I believe Thrall only has one rather hard to understand reason because we know more: Garrosh is Grom's son, and to the people of the Horde, Grom saved the orcs from the demonic blood forever. It's one of those 'you must be just like your father'. Thrall hopes that one day Garrosh will be able to do the same, however Thrall doesn't know a few things about Grom, Garrosh's father i believe, that lore does tell us:
1. Grom was the first to drink demonic blood on Draenor as he heard that there were draenei to fight, therefore he was the same person who took the first step to the actual enslavement by the demons. During this time Thrall was likely not even born yet.
2. Grom was the one who willingly drank the demonic blood for a -second time- in order to slay Cenarius simply for the sake of taking Ashenvale to burn it to the ground and claim it for the Horde. During this time Thrall was nowhere around.
What Thrall only knows is that he slew Mannoroth single-handedly, and eventually freed his own people from the curse that he was responsible of creating. And ofcourse Thrall hopes that Garrosh will do the same when the time is right. He doesn't know that in the process of doing so, Garrosh would possibly be the actual cause of the problem that he's going to solve!
Furthermore, Thrall saw Grom always as a proud chief of the Warsong clan. He saw that his clan was loyal and strong, though he overlooked the ruthless and bloodlusted part a bit, because he only got a few glimpses of it. Come to think of it, maybe only one glimpse! One time in WC3 where Grom attacked the Alliance in Stonetalon Mountains without hesitation, disobeying Thrall's order to stay put.
What we know of Grom, and what Thrall knows of it, is a completely different story.
In Nagrand, Thrall showed how Grom saved his people by slaying Mannoroth to Garrosh. Because that is now all that Garrosh knows of his father, he doesn't have any reason to doubt that he is a born leader! UH OH!
As you see in the trailer, and pretty much everywhere where Garrosh shows up, he's following the footsteps of his father that Thrall actually never got to inspect so carefully.
So Thrall now has doubts in his mind, likely. One saying Garrosh is meant to be a hero, the other saying Garrosh is going to be exactly the opposite. A total failure. Currently we likely think the second, but Thrall likely still questions.
Jun 25th 2010 6:23PM Has Blizzard ever left any trace of saying if or how they are planning to create new character models?
Jun 20th 2010 7:35PM Agreed.
Best raids of every expansion in my opinion:
Classic: Ahn'Qiraj 20/40
Jun 19th 2010 5:36AM I've never healed with addons so i might not know what i'm missing, but so far i've never had any situation where i thought something like grid would better my experience.
Do people who have addons automatically have less skill? I have no clue. That needs research. There's nothing claiming that's correct or incorrect yet.
