Druid Tier 13 and Visual Retrospective
Blizzard released another Tier 13 preview and today's post features the Druid set, the Deep Earth Vestments.

Deep Earth Vestments


The design called for "phosphorescent mushrooms, reminiscent of Zangarmarsh," so our main concern was avoiding making a helm that looked like a giant toadstool sombrero. We’re always looking to incorporate interesting light sources within a raid set, and bioluminescent vegetable growth certainly provides that. Twisting, organic shapes are often key elements of a druid set, and this tier is no exception, with writhing plant roots providing a frame for the glowing clusters of fungi.

    I like the idea and the color scheme, but I don't care for the models of the pieces. The shape of the shoulders is weird and how the helmet just kind of connects to nothing in the front. If the priest set has a huge belt I'm going to be sad. But, it's way better than T12 which is a hot mess. My favorite druid set of all time is def T6.

    I like the druid set as well, but I really disagree with how you portray other people who don't like it.

    Good looking set, nothing too flashy, great number of pixels and just epic looking enough for people to want to obtain it. If you don't like it, you can always Transmog yourself to look like an odd moose or badly shaped tree, though i don't know why you'd want too....

    I absolutely love this set. I main a warlock but I'm seriously going to main my druid heals for 4.3. Yeah it does have a zangramarsh shroom look to it. I love the colors, the shrooms, the whole look of this set is perfect. I'll have to wait and see how flourescent the mushrooms on the shoulders are but by the picture the colors look perfect. And it looks beautiful on a female night elf. With my long green braid it will blend perfectly with this set. I can understand if you're a male tauren tank how you might not like this. But it fits a female nelf resto druid theme perfectly.This is not only a return to BC form, it surpasses it in awesomeness. Bravo blizz.

    definitely beats T12 but not to sure I really like this one, personally I really liked T11 for Cata but of course T6 wins overall.

    Helm looks like the rogue T10 helm cut open. Yucky.

    Because that specific one is only available to Horde.

    I think he means that trolls werent druids in t9, so it should be on a tauren.
