    Nice color palette on these items. Some really nice tones and combinations. Hope gear has the same vibe, it's going to make transmog fun!

    Not very impressive, I was hoping for some better looking weapons and shoulders. A lot of things I don't like, and very few I do. Atleast we still have transmog.

    If you haven't just look at Kargath on the Warlords homepage.

    Hope they fix that lol.

    You look really really silly right now. The hand is fixed, it was the artwork that had the hand on the wrong place.

    Most of them look pretty bland, but i could see how some pieces could be added to my mog sets.

    I think I have outgrown WoW's style. None of these weapons are in any way appealing, except the Polearm made of a jaw. 'Savage' and bright green, yellow and purple don't mix that well, imho. Shoulders and several of the shields look decent, though.

    Also, i don't know why my attention was drawn there, but the scar/line or Kargath's nipples makes them look like a regulating knob.

    These are probably just the levelling items that you'll see in droves on the AH.

    Did all the greens shown during the MoP (beta) make you say that as well?

    First of all, I love the colors. Glad to see them mixing it up. Unfortunately most are right back to the stone colors.

    The looks? I can't even... This crappy item design has plagued this game since post WOTLK, few items/sets aside. I understand these are most likely leveling greens, but I really hope this...savage/rocky/boney/undersized/oversized/tusk theme is dropped quickly when we move into epic quality items. I mean at this point, after all these years judging reception and now data with transmog, they should have a good idea of what players want in the size of a 1 handed axe for example.

    Blizzard should be focusing on sets they know will kill it. Stop going for the narrow-minded dungeon's theme at the cost of making it look too specific. Go back to class themed loot. Was all of Molten Core's Tier fire themed like Firelands? No. Is it to this day one of the most popular transmog sets? Yes. You know how you keep people playing more than making actual side content and daily zones? Make them HAVE to get their gearset because of the looks. Make all gear the same quality of challenge mode gear. It might take longer, but you'll have happier players in the long run. A common theme I hear is that we're willing to wait the time while you polish your expansions and patches, and please take the time on the single most important thing in this game: gear.

    According to wowwiki/wowpedia I believe his left hand is the correct hand, so its the artwork that was drawn wrong or it was mirrored. The first time he was drawn in the Warcraft 2 manual it was his left hand that was a blade.

    Hard to say anything there actually looks good

    If Grommash and Durotan stood straight like Kargath I wouldn't be disappointed by their appearance.
    They just look too much like the average player orc.

    Wow. Blizzard is really running out of ideas. If you look carefully, the vast majority of these weapons/armor are just slight variations of the MoP gear. I even see some WotLK and Cata variations. What happened to the days of Blizzard actually putting out unique looking stuff? Come to this of it, that seemed to only be BC. But we're going back to the same world, this is a whole new world for Blizz to make exciting and unique weapons that no one has seen before, because it's an alien planet. They really need to fire all their art designers and get some new blood, cause this is just getting sad now.

    i like a couple of the swords and polearms.

    some of the shoulders are okay. rest is kinda meh.

    but usually quest gear is kinda meh anyways

    Not really. My point still stands. Perhaps it's even worse that they didn't catch it before releasing their promotional images/putting it on the WoD website.

    For quest, dngn and generic pvp items, the artwork isn't bad at all. people commenting on how bad these are don't seem to realize raid drops WILL look much much epic... so hold ur buttcheeks
