The starter experience transmogs were overall a huge disappointment. 3/2 tints for each weapon type have been datamined, and what? Alliance gets swords, horde gets maces, axes and both get staves and daggers. Some simple weapon option is nice and all, but no shield? No sword for horde, or axe for alliance? There were many interesting and fresh transmogs and we can't even get the boots.
They want us to roleplay as hobbits.
Perfect place to put them would be on the quest that requires you to buy and sell items to the first vendor you meet. Have them be the required item to purchase from the vendor.
Wait those weapons never made it to the game,what the heck is this?
I know I reported it multiple times, at least once per build, and gave multiple suggestions for where they could show up. Definitely sad that they still didn't add them, as of the prepatch, since I have gotten all four armor types complete, except for the boots. The fact that the set unlocks for both factions was great, but not if pieces are missing. Pieces that are created, but just not available.
At least you can still get the xmog elsewhere, and it's not like you're going to have all your gear perfectly matching your level while leveling anyways. Tabard not being learned, missing weapons, and not getting cross-faction weapon xmogs bother me a lot more.
RNG taken to a new level - there is a chance that there is no chance of getting these boots. Even if they drop for you, they might not.
Theyll wind up like the DK Saronite War Battleplate set, where matching boots for a set made in 3.0 didn't get added until 5.3 and for only 3 months during the Darkspear Rebellion.
There are a lot of sets in the game that are missing pieces, these models are all in the game files, Blizzard could add them any time but they don't. Sometimes they decide to add a couple of them for example Island Expedition loot completed a couple of old tier sets but why do we have to wait like 10 years for boots to finally being able to complete a set is beyond me.
Always the boots... Its crazy how something like this goes unnoticed. They did the same with the rogue mythic antorus set as well. A MYTHIC set of gear didnt come with boots lol. Pretty sad for a game as expensive to play as WoW is.
Oh sweet, my post got quoted in the news article!Thanks for drawing attention to this situation, Wowhead team.
Good to know. I'd run through it twice and thought I had just missed something. I even spent some time hunting around the second run before leaving to make sure.
Was really looking forward to a vendor for all these items.
Cannot see boots? Blizzard just trolling you
I noticed it too, and it annoyed me to no end! Thank god I had the crafted boots from BfA pvp set, but Blizzard should really implement those Expeditionary boots as one of the quest rewards, as well as the shields! Otherwise this is garbage.
I guess the set was made for races like worgen, draeni, or trolls who don’t wear boots anyway 🙃
Blizzard will put them in the Cash shop to teach new players how to use it..
