With patch 9.1.5 bringing updated starter gear for newly made characters, there has been a lot of discussion on whether or not losing the old sets, which have more flavor for the individual races rather than being strictly about the class, is worth it. Thankfully, Kaivax has confirmed that they are looking to add them back into the game in some other manner, so they won’t become rare or lost to those who aren’t hoarding them. Hopefully this also means they’ll intend them to be transmoggable, but even if not it will be nice for people wanting to use them for RP or other reasons in the future, given that the sets were tailored for the classes and the race, such as the Blood Elf Hunter starting set above.

Please don’t worry that any original starter gear might go away forever or become very rare.

We’re working on making all of those various older starter pieces available to players who want to obtain them.
