You have no right to complain since the existence of Transmogrification. Demand thread to be closed.
Lets face it these weapons are just pointless stat placeholders which people will just mog
We all know that nearly everyone is gonna be sporting the new legendary's which im hoping will blow us away so why bother making the weapons look anything cool if people are just gonna be using there legendary anyway
You have to go back to WoWs golden age of design (BC and prior) to actually find a gun or a bow that doesnt look like total horsecrap, ICC's was alright but christ MoP, they arent even trying anymore.
You guys need to have a look at the new hunter PvE armour, its fucking hilariously bad. (Image courtesy of herecius)

Celestial sparkly dragon of the heavenly sparkles number 508276# Yawn.
this gun is essentialy a tesla coil, it shoots bloody lightnings, thats like a definition of badass
LOL. Theres no way thats the Hunter armor. SURELY. It looks like one of those old timey diver suits.
Because the major market is now China while the western playerbase is already shrinking anyway, therefore their prime audience lies in China where the all knowing and all powerful government has the 1st say on what the public should be exposed to, and the list of stuff that is deemed as offensive by this galactic entity, is actually quite long.
At least it is a bit colorful again. I've been feeling covered in mud and shit wielding rusty sticks ever since wrath.
Truthfully, I think MoP has had the worst armour 'themes' thus far in WoW; at the very least on par with Cata, if being generous.
One could theoretically get mad at how 5.4's armour looks, but that implies anything from 5.0 onward was worth getting that excited about.
New expansion will hopefully do something about this ugly trend.
Im not kidding, this expansions theme is feeling like its not for older players. BC and WotLK had dark, grim and sharp weapons. Cata started getting more like MoP but still retained its fiery death god theme.
The best set ive seen so far for my class is the new hunter PvP set, because its inspired by Garrosh I assume (due to the large grim looking horns).
No offense to the color purple though, I loved my purple T5 coupled with either the purple 2H mace or the shield also dropping from Gruul ;D
I agree with the OP though, I haven't found anything yet that blew me off my socks as some of the armor/weapon sets in previous expansions. I actually think the majority of the designs just simply suck balls. Perhaps we'll get some cool stuff in the next expansion again.
I agree with the OP. Most of the weapon models we've gotten since WotLK has looked awful. Don't even get me started on MoP. All of the pastel colors make my stomach turn. Fuchsia here, fuchsia there......fuchsia everywhere.
I prefer weapons that look more like actual....................weapons.
