T4, T5, and T9 also have pants over skirts. I actually gained a lot of appreciation for T9 lately, after seeing what T15, and even 16, look like (I like T14, but will reserve it for the Black and White Normal mode, instead of my Red and Gold LFR one).
Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.
Cylons! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh run away!
very nice, i liked t14 with lion/tiger/whatever heads on shoulders, but that easly tops it
This expansion has been pretty disappointing in terms of set designs (Lock T14 and Pally CM are the only ones good). T16 is ugly, generic and forgettable for all classes. Pally tier is the best one of those so far.
Either the yellow or blue might finally convince me to switch away from my T2 Judgement transmog.

I like the head and shoulders, blue and yellow. Robe, gloves and belt are nothing special. Red is meh.. too much magma for me. Best T16 set and best of MoP for paladins thus far, T15 was a huge disappointment. I still raid with T11 Heroic. Lot's of details in that armor.
I think all colors for the T16 paladin set looks like crap and will stick with the Challenge Mode set or T15 heroic.
The set does not look paladin to me and has more of a priest vibe.

I'm kind of in love with this set. In my opinion, it's one of the best sets this tier.
But seriously; good set. Not brilliant, but good imo.
People Hating on it for having a Skirt, you realise paladins are meant to be "holy" men. and Robes suits that in a great more many ways than chunky legs.
Paladins in WoW basically cover the Cleric archetype aswell, and they always had Mail skirts on.
Bow down before our new furry overlords!
While I kind of like this set I feel like it looks a lot like an old Mage tier. Doesn't really look like plate.
I've never liked the skirt for my paladin, so I'm hoping that it comes from the chest and there's a leg model underneath. A similarly colored chest can be subbed in with a good tabard over the top. I love the helm and the shoulders (which definitely hearken back to the Judgement set) but the rest of the set lacks detail. The problem with the robes and cloaks in game is that they have tried to put detail onto them but they lack texture and so the flat appearance ruins the effect. I really hope there's a leg model (and possibly a chest model without the skirt) with good textures. If at least the legs are there with good texture I'll definitely be happy with this set, particularly the blue and gold, which I hope is heroic. The other color sets are lack luster at best.
As for previous sets for this expansion, I think they've done a good job with the exception of helms. T14 normal (white and gold) was great but the helm model looks like Sonic the Hedgehog. T15 heroic (blue) is nice as well, but again the helm looks like a conehead.
Every new tier makes me more convinced that transmogging is probably the best feature they've ever come up with in the game.
