Arena Season 9 Models Preview
It's time for some PvP love! Just like with any model preview, you have to keep in mind that I don't have really have any decent way to check how the sets are supposed to be displayed in the first place and it always lead to a few errors (Mostly on glove/boots models). The multi race/gender preview will most likely be available when Blizzard finishes polishing the sets and actually deploy them on beta servers.

Death Knight



Druid



Hunter



Mage



Paladin



Priest



Rogue



Shaman



Warlock



Warrior

We've been toying with a change to Divine Storm to make it more like Fan of Knives. Specifically, you could use it whenever you want, for mana, but it would share a cooldown with Crusader Strike. It would have nothing to do with Holy Power (unless Divine Purpose still applied). The idea would be that sometimes you're okay giving up the single target rotation of Crusader Strike -> Templar's Verdict in return for being able to use an AE attack every 4.5 to 3 sec. It's too early yet to know if this design will work out.

Divine Storm has a great visual and many long-time Ret paladins have a soft spot for it, so we'd like to get it back to more common use. (Source)

Searing Totem
As I said a few weeks ago, we're still working on the AI of Searing Totem. If we can chill out its latent homicidal tendencies, then we could consider bumping the range. Currently bumping the range would just infuriate your group leader more often. (Source)

    Ugh, the DK armor is making the T11 set look better and better by comparison.

    I'm more jealous that hunters get to look like Shredder from TMNT with an eyepatch.

    As for the mage armor..... can anyone say "generic"?

    Question peeps, is it required for a pally gear to be always bright? I'm sick and tired with this in mind of the artist. As ret myself, most of my skills are now physical and only few are holy. FFS blizzard give us darker pally gear!!!!!

    The Warrior set reminds me of the Robocop costume.

    Black warrior set ROCKS O.o first gear set ever that looks like a _real_ armor, made of steel and meaning to protect the body rather than fruity carnaval dress.. omg.. must.. have..!
  1. Sensa's Avatar
    in general, those pvp sets look better than the pve sets imho...sleeker, less ridiculous attributes (feathers et al), helms you might actually not hide and a little bit of skin showing (bare forearms etc).

    And kudos to blizz for sticking up for the red shirt guy...and all the internet jerks can go cry themselves to sleep now knowing their disgraceful conduct resulted in this kid getting the most epic gift from blizz, something they will never get or deserve.

    It's real. Totalbiscuit is wrong. Valnoth is Alex Afrasiabi, the guy who was on-stage with Chris Metzen.

Top that with pointing out a flaw in lore to the Loreman himself, Metzen and.... dude is a damn badass! Major kudos to him! I'm a damn confident guy and that's not something I could do.
    Seriously! takes guts, public speaking is horrible. So glad the guy not only got the fix on the lore he wanted to see, but got his very own red shirt guy toon! thats awesome. Nice to see the bliz development team giving the man kudos also. Raised my level of respect.
