My favorite Tier would have to be Tier 10 (Heroic) for enhancement shamans. I love shamans and the reason i loved this set more then others is for a few different reasons. One was the fact that it was the last revealed set for all the tier 10 armor sets at the time and with it being the last everyone thought it was gonna be something special. When it was finally shown (with the added shoulder effects) the vote amongst shamans (as far as the ones i talked to ) was unanimous .... it kicked it, and was alot better looking then the other tier. Second reason i love this tier was the color scheme. RED. for the hardest to earn pieces. Lastly was the fact that it took a couple months to complete the full red heroic tier 10 set. Not only because protector tokens would never drop for our raid group but also because we had 2 warrior tanks 2 dps warriors 3 hunters and 4 shamans. When i finally finished my tier 10 RED heroic sanc set it was the most fulfilling set i had ever earned. Even now with how slow and long it takes to get tier in cata i still feel like that tier 10 was the hardest and well earned tier i ever recieved.Thats why i love the Frost Witch tier 10 Shaman set :D
My favourite is hands down tier 3 warrior gear. Basically it looks like naxx tier 7. Except back in original wow hardly ANYONE could get even a piece of it. It's my favourite because it reminds me of raiding naxx at level 60 5 times a week and all the good times :) Also, the only tier of armour to have 9 pieces in total, including a ring! And the set bonuses were incredible...
I'd have go with Demon Stalker Armor. It was the first full set of Tier gear I got on my Hunter. It took me forever to get it, constantly being outrolled on the tokens, but one day it finally happened, and what a momentous day it was.
I agree the lock t5 set Malefic Raiment was amazing the whole wings coming out just makes it so evil
What makes or breaks a set's overall look for me personally is the shoulders and the helm. I like t11 mage and t10 death knight the best overall.
The best of all is the Warrior Tier 3 Dreadnaught on a gnome when the shoulders were still huge. That was truly the best!
My favorite tier set will always be hunter tier 2 raid set Dragonstalker armor was always the kewlest in my eyes. XD. It just was so much diffrent than any other armor set. It just gave hunters that look that they were Awesome!
Druid T4 never got old for me and I had those shoulders for a loooooooooooong time (since the 2 piece bonus was better than T5 for bear tanking). In fact, my druid still has them xD
I like the shaman tier 10, Cause exploding boars out of shoulders were badass
Hunter Tier 2, Dragonstalker made me roll a hunter back in vanilla
I personally prefered the t9 sets as a whole, as they were the ones of highest value when I started playing xD. I felt like they were also the most balanced set in all as well.
