Transmog Sets as Level-Up Reward for All Races and Classes - An Idea

Hey everybody,

first things first, this is not technically a feature request to Blizzard, I'm just interested in how the community reacts to this idea. Looking forward to constructive criticism and a general "How we feel about this" discussion. :)

Allied Races are getting transmog sets as a level-up reward, and I've read a few comments by people who would like all races to get a transmog set. I've been thinking about that for a while and have come up with a possible solution (and a few problems) for both race- and class-based level-up rewards.

Race Sets: City Guard Outfits

Roleplayers have been wanting city guard armour as wearable items for a long, long time. The Stormwind guard, the Silvermoon guard - the graphics already exist, but as of now, they're merely part of the guard model, not individual items. It's arguably easier to turn those into actual items than to create something new from scratch for every race.

When a night elf reaches max level, they could get Darnassus Sentinel armour. Stormwind stuff for humans, etc. The problem with that is that most of those armour models are locked inside an armour class. Levelling up a human mage and getting a plate transmog probably wouldn't feel that great. Still, I think it's a good starting point, as it doesn't mean creating a completely new transmog set for every race in the game.

Class Sets: Recolours

I know, I know. "Lazy Blizzard, stop doing recolours". They would, however, be a great starting point for class-based level-up rewards. All the milestones could get an appropriate recolour you can't get anywhere else in the game, making levelling feel more rewarding.

When you reach level 60, you get a recolour of one of your class's level 60 raid sets, and so on, all the way up to the second-to-last expansion. Handing out recolours of current content sets feels wrong and like "taking something away" from those who spend a lot of time and effort raiding.

It's a great way to re-introduce old sets and make them relevant again - and, of course, an incentive to use the new levelling system and level up some new characters.

Any thoughts? Horrible idea, good idea but will never happen? I do realise a large percentage of people probably won't give a shit, but I thought I'd throw it out there for altoholics, transmog fans and bored people. :D

Things that annoy you in M+

Transmog Sets as Level-Up Reward for All Races and Classes - An IdeaI have quite a few of them on my mind, but these are the top 3: 1) Roleplay. Seriously, CoS is a nice place, but I'm tired of listening to the Melandrus dialogue every single time. I think all RP should be removed from M+ and timers reduced accordingly. 2) Checkpoints (respawn points). There should be a checkpoint after EVERY boss. Otherwise when you die in CoS - you have far less time to run to the last boss, then in DHT or Neltharion's Lair. 3) Amount of trash. Sure, timers compensate for that, but there's an immense disparity between MoS and Arcway. I like the bosses and the dungeon itself, but would it really hurt that much if we remove some trash pact and reduce the timer ac...
