Even the most basic and simplistic styles of the plate armor look incredible; can't wait to use them! I love the quilted padding they have beneath the pieces; gives them more depth!
sick robocop plate, autobots roll out !
Hope they keep all these color variants. Blizzard tends to cut the colors I like the most from the finished game xD
They really don't know what to do with mail, do they? It's always been so nebulous and iffy, rarely spot on and the "OH I NEED THAT" look.
Why can't mail have a hood without a stupid blinder in the way. Mail getting shafted again, haha the meme continues. Looking forward to other sets though. Maybe class sets...?
I don't think I've seen a mail set so bland before. There's like nothing going on there...
Oh wow, these are honestly the best questing gear sets I’ve ever seen. This is what BfA would’ve called a raid set. If the questing sets are on this level, I think we can expect great things with the raid gear.
Mail armor is terrible as usual
Not gonna lie I really like that they're giving different tints to what I'm assuming are the Covenant armor sets. It'll make people stand out way more if they choose to use them.
oh dear lord they're awful, which baffles me that blizz keeps finding ways to make especially mail worse, mail hasn't had a great set since like wrath, with few exceptions were artists part of that purge of firings they did? why are they dreadful? why is this even accepted why does this get past the concept stage who sees this and approves it? do they have no shame? this is why we need class sets at least that gave them a reason to semi care and try. with out that everything is just quest quality looking gear as we saw with BfA.I knwo these are questing sets but for dear god how do they not get a mail set right in decades? leather looks more like mail than fricking mail.
Man I really am looking forward to the Draconic Vampire one they showed, totally goes for my Human Paladin Oder of the Dragon! :D
why are they so unable to make cool non plate sets? Look at the difference between even the basic plate set and the "cool" cloth and leather. Its the same issue they always had balancing how cool warlock tier always was compared to the rest
The cloth ones look like they miss a lot of 3D parts, but if the mail from Bastion looks the same as it looked in the concept art, i'll be happy. The rest of those sets are rocking too, i especially like the option to have few tints of it.
Looking at the armor in this post I thought "I bet people are going to be complaining about the mail sets." I was not wrong.
Mail armor get screwed again... at least hunters wont look too much like shamans again -_-
9 cloth sets7 leather sets6 plate sets4 mail setsI wish my hunter could look cool :/
For all that is holy please rehire the artists that used to make gear prior to MoP or WoD. I forget which expansion, but one of those is when the gear stopped looking the classic way we were used to and started looking "special". The only gear that looked amazing post WoD was the Legion sets that were throw backs to TBC sets. Not many people want bland plain gear. This is meant to be a fantasy game. Look at the most popular transmog sets, they're the old sets.
I think they all look great, some really nice colour combinations.Wish they would at least attempt to include some actual mail in mail armor though, just a bit more often. Mail and scale textures, could be small ringlets or larger sheets of metal.
they should really brainstorm more about this. it happened in bfa and it happened here too. in a way, i get it; with plate having distinct pieces, it's really easy to design them and even more so, they have better polygons compared to slapping an entire design into a robe mesh. but that's no excuse to slack off on other armor sets just because it's a literal piece of cloth. it's almost as if there's a level-up kind of look to the sets. like compare the basic plate set to the basic cloth set; it's like what someone would look if he wore robes from the low-level and ends up wearing a plate armor in the later levels. it's very tier-like side by side and it really puts cloth in a bad light because they'll always look like some weird old hand-me-downs that you chanced upon and plates will always look good and grand even if they're green equips.
