WoW Will Eventually Let Players Hide Everything Except Their Pants

WoW Will Eventually Let Players Hide Everything Except Their Pants

With the announcement of a "Hide Chest" option, Blizzard promises more in the future.

Earlier today, the World of Warcraft team hosted another WoW Live Developer Q&A on Twitch. In response to a question about new Transmogrification options during the Q&A, World of Warcraft game director Ion Hazzikostas said that the team was looking into a "Hide Chest" option for armor, in addition to loosening some restrictions on transmog items.

"In our next update, we're going to have the ability to 'Hide Chest' as a default transmog setting, so that if you're a Lightforged, a Zandalari, a Mag'har Orc, you can show off those cool tattoos," said Hazzikostas on stream.

This led to one poster on the World of Warcraft forums asking if players would eventually have the ability to hide any piece of armor. Assuming that chest pieces could be hidden, why stop there? Blizzard Entertainment apparently agrees because a community moderator stepped in to say that the feature would be coming eventually.

"I spoke to the development team just now, and they are determined to make this a set of changes that give players ways to hide every slot. Except pants. We'll let you know as soon as we have details on how that’s going to come about in a future update to the game," replied WoW community manager Randy 'Kaivax' Jordan.

So if you're looking to get your Conan the Barbarian on as a Mag'har Orc, it'll eventually be an option for you. Hazzikostas also tackled the ongoing community discussion about portals, a potential level squish, more Allied Races, and roleplaying realms for WoW Classic.
