Dec 27th 2011 2:22PM You people are taking the shorthand description of the rule entirely too literally. It's generally 'win one item until everyone has something, or people who haven't won don't want it.' If you've got one plate-wearer in the run, the raid isn't going to shard every piece of plate after the first because that one guy won his one item -- but when a sword or trinket that several classes can use drops later on, that plate-wearer is going to be expected to pass in favor of someone who hasn't won anything. (But if no one else wants the sword, then guess what? He can have that too!)
The intent of the one-item rule is to make it more likely that everyone will walk away with SOMEthing, rather than having one person hoover up it up while nine other equally deserving people get nothing. And since statistically you're more likely to be in 'the other nine', it actually works to your advantage in the long run.

That gear's been available for points for some time. The people who ground out battlegrounds and dungeons to buy it *also* earned it fairly according to the rules at the time that they did it, and they've got as much right to use transmogrification as you do. Heck, they're still *wearing* it -- they're just keeping it in their bags and switching it out for looks like they always have. So this silly, needlessly discriminatory restriction doesn't even accomplish its supposed intent of keeping the look rare. It's not rare at all, just cumbersome.
I do support Blizzard's decision to start small and allow more over time, but this is one of the decisions I dearly hope they reverse, and soon. I also would like to see them allow Legendary weapons to be used for transmogrification -- I'm still grinding out my staff, dammit, and I'll still want to show it off after I'm compelled to replace it with some MoP green.

(I've got all my pieces in one bank-bag, so I can find them easily!)

Dec 22nd 2011 12:51PM I like water breathing for the stupid underwater 'collect 20 foozles' quests, JUST so I don't have to waste time surfacing and swimming back down. It's one of those itty-bitty quality-of-life things; I don't NEED it, but it sure is nice.
Also whenever a raidful of people (or usually just one annoying person) are screaming BUFFS PLZ I like to toss it on them, just to feel like I'm contributing. :-D
