And spending time designing cute mounts and transmog sets only to be met with “we don’t want this garbage” and “Blizz stop being greedy”.
Artists already get little recognition for their work, not just on WoW, but in general. People will say artists are greedy when they charge $40 for a commission that will take them 10-20 hours to make.
These store items likely help pay the artists more. Stop being jerks. No one is forcing you to buy them.
Signed, an artist who’s tired of the negativity every. single. time.
EDIT: Just so people stop misinterpreting what I said, by helping pay the artists more, I meant it gives them something to work on during downtime so they can get paid, not that sales money goes to them.
EDIT 2: At this point, I wish people would read more than the OP before replying, lol.
