    TBC gear was response for all the blah gear from vanilla, dev's had plenty of time to make the dungeons and raid gear, something that we will never see again due to mogs.

    My opinion depends more on classes because some expansions tier sets were either fucked up or godly looking. But as an overall statement, TBC no doubt and next to it vanilla. I loved pala t2 and warrior t2 along with other t2 sets

    A bit torn between Vanilla and Cata, but since Paladins actually looked like Paladins in Vanilla that alone makes Vanilla win.

    TBC was okay, but I don't really dig the spacey feel so much that much of it had, or obscure things like Hunter Tier 6 having those eyeball shoulders.

    WotLK was very meh. Tier 10 looked great, Tier 9 was just bad, Tier 8 was decent, and Tier 7 was only cool because it was Tier 3, which makes it ineligible imo.

    MoP hasn't been very sharp on the Tier sets, they all look pretty bland to me.

    MoP for me! I love the DK raid sets from WotLK and MoP, but what made me choose MoP is CM set! Oh my! This set is amazing for DKs! o/

    TBC and WotLK imo. Vanilla were okay, specifically Paladin T2 and Warrior T3.

    I really liked the cataclysmic PvP set for paladins. I also really liked the Udluar sets for paladins.

    Yeah, it's not like Hunter T6 is the worst set any class has had in any expansion. Oh wait, it is :l

    Doesn't even make sense thematically, the gronn is in T4 content and the T4 set stalking demons would have made perfect sense for T6... ah well grumble grumble

    T6 hunter is amazing....

    And it doesn't matter because they weren't NECESSARILY making the tier sets back then based on raid themes.

    I think the Burning Crusade had some really epic tier sets.
    Although, I love the Classic and early WotLK tier sets as well

    I'm really partial to T6... My priests 8/8 T6 is among my most prized possessions. Priest's T5 is quite good too and has aged better than most, and their Tier 4 was really great too. Warlock Season 2 is my favorite PvP set of all time, and Paladin Season 2 gets an honorable mention. BC also has tons and tons of off-set items worthy of x-mog, especially weapons, not to mention those iconic warglaives.

    Wrath would come in 2nd easily. MoP sets all around are very good, high quality sets but in comparison to BC or WotLK I hate to say they come across as uninspired to me. The Rogue Tyrannical set makes me look like Shredder and when I saw it I knew I had to have it, but other than that I haven't seen any sets that have come across as visually distinctive enough to leave a real impact on me the way that say the Season 2 Paladin set did once. Ironically one of the few pieces to have that kind of flair in my view is the Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, a transmog-only piece.

    TBC was the best period, and the tier sets were no exception. I love the T6 set for pretty much every class they were amazing.

    Toss-up between Wrath and Cataclysm.

    Ahem. Warrior T2.5:

    There is only one thing that we say to the god of death.

    TBC and its not about nostalgia. T5 warlock was amazing, T6 priest on female undead probbably best set ingame to this day. T6 warrior and many more.

    I liked all tier sets for shamans. I can't really say which expansion had the best. I didn't really raid during Cata and I think I am kinda biased because I was far more attached to the tier sets during TBC for obvious reasons (more 'exclusive'/rare).

    I have to say the T6 set for warriors is still my favorite combined with Bulwark of Azzinoth but I am also a big fan of shaman T5 and dualwielding Claw of Molten Fury and Fist of Molten Fury and shaman T6.

    Shaman T6 is also spacey but I liked it a lot more than shaman T10 which was some nature shit in an undead raid. Only the animation was nice.

    I'm sure people who didn't play back then or don't agree are going to call this nostalgia again because we can't like something that's old and outdated .

    This is pretty epic tbh.

    Cm gear for warrior/dk/pally/rogue/lock , and some t14/t15/16 sets from both lfr and normal are prob the coolest looking sets in this game. For example:
    Rf dk hunter lock/norm pally for t14.
    Rf hunter warrior (golden one) rogue pally lock mage + any shaman color for t15.
    Rogue dk (-head) warrior (rf and hc ones) for t16.
    T1 and 2 mostly meh, 3 was awesome (although the bmah one should be class restricted) and so were 5 7 8 10 11 12 and 13 except for the rogue/druid heads for 11 12 and 13 and lock's t11 head. T4 wasn't that bad except for the hunter/rogue. 6 same as 4 minus rogue/hunter/lock/druid.
    Inb4 , voted mists.

    Depends on the class. Vanilla and TBC had the most iconic sets, but they didn't have to try and look different from older sets because there weren't any. I am a fan of some recent sets, but usually only 1-2 sets per tier, and usually from classes I don't play
