I can honestly say the only set I don't completely hate out of all of these is the Death Knight set, and that's only if you hide that hideous helmet it has.In my opinion the gear tier designs have been bad throughout MoP but these.... Ugh. Just no.
They look like they are experimenting more with new effects for other armor pieces glow effects such as legs (note how the shines may open up new transmorg possibilities with different gear, especially with the legs now etc etc) I actually really like the Hunter tier, but it breaks the combo of the whole Stalker theme so I guess they were struggling for ideas. I don't like the idea of wearing it on my own Hunter, however; feels like it suits a Paladin or DK much better or even Rogues. The Paladin set seems to win this time round. I see a few nods to older tiers with it.
I love the druid normal set, minus the helm, but that can be fixed. d;
In the tier set boxes, you labeled Windwalker as "Windweaver".
I don't get all the comments about how the devs aren't putting any effort into making the tier armors look good. I don't care for them either, but I don't really care for any of the Pandaria items. They share a certain theme that just doesn't appeal to me. But I don't see how they are any less well designed.
The Monk set looks like what I think a Priest set should like... and the Priest set... well... I'll be 'mogging it
Alayton, our modelviewer dev, is taking a look at the Hunter and Shaman shoulders today.
This is why i have gold challenges gear for trasmog XD
That hunter set is beyond terribad. Where are the spaulders, even?Regardless, I'm happy there's transmog.
Is something wrong with the Warlock one? It looks... unfinished.
Good sets: Monk, Paladin, WarriorOK: Rogue, Priest, Death Knight, MageWTF IS THIS !@#$?: Hunter, Shaman, Warlock, Druid
I think the Warrior set is the most hilarious one. It's so bright in so many places XD Warrior in T16 sets will be a leading cause in nightly flight accidents due to blinded mounts.
Why do I get the feeling the Art Department are just using Transmogrification to slack off on tier designs?One wing of the raid is set on Pandaria, ONE GODDAMN WING! This raid is about Orgrimmar, black warped iron, scorched earth, blood and grit and dirt! This is about the iconic battle between the Horde and the Alliance, back to the roots of it all. Enough with the silly swirls on the armour, enough with Pandaria! Yes, there is some old god corruption going on with Garrosh, but that doesn't mean you should stick flashlights on everything and scream, "Titans!" Of all the themes these sets should have taken, it should have been about the classes themselves, not the art style of some mist-shrouded continent we are about to spend very little time in.Just remove the fog lights on the Warrior, and you would have a set that fits the theme of the raid PERFECTLY! Why do the artists try to cram as much stuff as possible into one set, only to have it look cheap, trashy, and not too sure what it is even supposed to be... I died inside. I died inside.
Overall, I have not been terribly impressed with any of the druid sets this expansion. However, this newest druid set is probably my least favorite, it just does not look very druidic to me. It could be saved to some extent if the helm looked better, but I realize it's a little too late to change it now.
Is it just me or do all the tiers look like they belong to different classes? Maybe all of them except the DK.
Yup, I must agree with these posts, as I only found 2 (possibly 3) decent looking armour sets. I guess my rogue will keep her Netherblade look for now...PS: They must have had the intern design these outfits... lol
Quick summery of my opinion on all the sets that in no way will have any effect on anything, but I still need to put it out there. Might be harsh, but after so many good sets, Blizzard have some standards to live up to, so here we go :Death Knight: Like the helmet, rest is "meh".Druid: Only set I liked. In fact, I might dust off my druid for this.Hunter: Jesuswhatonearthisthatkillitwithfirerightnowholyhell. No. Like, for real. No.Mage: Doesn't look like a "mage" set to me, more like a dungeon set for a priest.Monk: I like it, but dps/tanks should have pants (looks like a priest set now). Ever tried to do martial arts in a dress?Paladin: With such a badass greathelm, ATLEAST give tank/dps pants, I beg of you! Priest: Looks like a dungeon set. AKA boring.Rogue: Maybe with the right key that keyhole opens up another dimension where this might look less boring.Shaman: It's ok, really, but the fact it only has one shoulder makes me physically ill. Gief that extra shoulder, and we're good!Warlock: It's... alright. I don't like it, but I don't dislike it either.Warrior: Looks good on a pandaren, but since I'm not a pandaren, I'm gonna pass.
Warrior - SHINE!
I think these tier sets rank pretty highly on the "worst designs ever" list.Wouldn't say worst ever... but the huntard set is way up there
Warriors can Haz Flashlights?
