Feature Fashion Victim
So, there was a lot going on at BlizzCon 2017. I wasn’t one of them, but that’s probably for the best. I’ll have more to say on other topics from that event, but if you’re impatient there are, well, about a zillion other actual blogs (and falling), and an exponentially increasing number of Twitch streams, you tube channels, and vlogs that will be more than happy to blurt out their thoughts, as well.
But one thing that jumped out me was at one of last night’s Q&As. Someone asked the very reasonable question, would Blizz be considering options for clothies other than robes going forward? The answer was something that sat me back on my haunches – “Whenever we find a way for clothies to look awesome wearing pants, we’ll do it.” Or words to that effect.
Well, okay, I’ll admit that they nailed it for healing cloth in Legion.
But there’s nothing wrong with a good pair of sturdy jeans, and warlocks can pull it off without even trying very hard.
As can fire mages.
One assumes that Arcane and Frost can pull it off as well.
Just because I haven’t found an outfit that screams “Disco” and isn’t robe-based yet doesn’t mean it isn’t possible. And I hate to say it, but what I heard in that pull quote from the Q&A was “We haven’t figured out how to make that happen”. Here’s a hint – try to move away from the clown suit esthetic. Imagine your wife / girlfriend / sister wearing it.
Which rules the Mageweave stripper pants out, and I’m good with that.
