Finally we get a tribute to DLC! Hail Narya!
YES! Just what I have always wanted.... a diving helm!
wow gone steampunk lol
Needs a long scarf with alternating bars of various colors. :)That said, I like the helmet and shoulders, but the rest is a bit blah. I've always thought mages did much better with at least highlights of bright colors. Throw in some streaks or highlights of that bright 'arcane blue' and you're in business.
Most people agree when asked "What will finally kill WoW?", that only Blizzard could actually kill it. I am starting to wonder if Blizz is attempting suicide (or WoWicied)....I just can't believe that what should be the most talented team of video game designers and developers in the world look at some of this new stuff and go "YEAH! Now THAT is what the players want!"
Yay flashlight headgear...
At the very least, it needs a super long multi-color scarf.
As a mage and as someone who enjoys steampunk, I can dig this set. It looks mage-y, while not being themed after the raid theme (I'm assuming). This is one of the few sets I'd consider a "fun" set, too. Good job, Blizz. My mage will have to get into raiding now.
I don't hate it, but there are a couple of turn-offs:First, why steampunk for Mages? Why not for Hunters? Hunter/Engineer seems (in my experience) to the the most common combination.Second, headlights. Done.Third, the texture of the chest piece looks like it was crafted from an oven mitt.I think it would have fit better if this had dropped in Ulduar.
Think Blizz ia a bit off, Timeloard's Regallia should look like this, not this.Or at the very least add a sonic screwdriver...
!@#$ you blizzard.This set looks like one of the many !@#$ty pvp sets you've thrown carelessly at us recently.
I mostly agree with xaratherus on this one. This set doesn't really feel mage-y enough as far as I'm concerned. Too much engineer, not enough magic. Yes, it is a good looking set, but not class appropriate. C+ at best. Outside of gnomes (maybe goblins, but that's a stretch), the detailing just seems out of place. My blood elf would look terrible in this. :\\ I was so excited for this tier when the warrior preview was first released, but after seeing my main's set I have to say I'm disappointed. :(
Holy hell, people. I'm seeing so many complaints about it being a Dr. Who reference without actually looking vaguely Dr. Who-ish; have you all forgotten about Nozdormu? You know, Aspect of Time, big yellow dragon, his group has been known to mix a bit of neon blue into their color schemes, remember?
Rofl...this is absolutely hideous.
I think this set works for what it's trying to be, the real question however is: Why is it trying to be Gnomish-style steampunk in the first place?The Warrior and Warlock sets are pretty sensible for the final raid of Cataclysm. The Shaman set is a pretty traditional Orc spiritual garb, which I suppose is okay considering the importance of Thrall here. But then where does a Zangermarsh-inspired Druid set and a Steampunk Mage set come from? Exactly how many environments and themes is the Deathwing Raid going to cover?
Awesome Engineering gear for Mages.My inner druid wants to scream.
Looks alright...cept for blue googles.4/10
I believe, Zarhym said it best.There is only one objective truth about every single armor set we've ever made -- some people love, and some people hate, each of 'em. The art is completely subjective and your tastes reflect your viewpoint. That said, our design philosophy for epic sets is not changing at all with the introduction of Transmogrification. We're still going to keep designing what we think is fitting and awesome for each class and tier. We want people to want to wear all of the major armor sets we release. In the future you'll just have the option of deciding what set fits you best aesthetically and adventuring to obtain it, without worrying about the stats. :)
