Just a heads-up, people: if a new user account bumps an old topic, it's 99.9% of the time a bot. After a week or so they'll edit the response to include some shady links. The post looks sort of on point and Diablo-esque, but has some weird language in it.
I've deleted the post (to be clear, Kallizk was *not* the one I was talking about - the spam post who bumped this is gone!) but I'm gonna lock this. Please if you see a necro just report it and let it go, the mods will take care of it; especially if the necro comes from a brand new account.
Yeah, I think it's weird. Judging people by their look... really? I usually don't transmog unless someone asks me to, and if they do, I mock them by creating the ugliest transmog possible. I remember that overneathe or zero (one of them, don't recall who) didn't want to play with me in the RoS beta because I refused to transmog my character. Their loss!
I like the Tyrael wings though, and I found a pet chest which is kinda cool, so I'm using that. But I wouldn't pay a dime for that, and I couldn't care less if I lost either of that... if I could trade that against a stack of Death's Breath it'd be gone instantly
They don't do anything except require more processing power-> MORE LAG. They don't gather gold or boost your character.
And all that for a stupid pet that does NOTHING.
Am i the only one that do not care about cosmetics?
I don't care much about cosmetics either, but just a few clarifications:
1) Pets/wings do not cause lag. As you say, they may require processing power (though roughly 0.01% of what's happening on your screen, as they're very low-polygon and have no fancy graphic effects), but processing power is local. Lag is caused by calculations, and those are client-server connections. Since pets/wings don't interact with the environment in GRs at all - absolutely zero - their contribution to lag is literally 0.0%.
2) Pets do exactly what you say they don't: they gather gold. You should always have a pet out in Nephalem Rifts/bounties as it collects gold for you.
