It's not a typical DK set, but at the same time i'm somewhat tired of skulls here and there and everywhere. I like this more titan-oriented artwork and so the set, hoped for something similar a while back and there it is.
Not THE dk set, but from a personal view on of my favorite sets, aside from the crappy setboni i really look forward to this set.
wait..... lemme get this straight.... you dont like venom.... but you like skull dresses @_@

its a robit skull.
This current tier, outside of the shoulders looks horrendous. So yea...I like skull dresses more than the Current T15 gear. I didn't say our best set was T14, but in terms of aesthetics Tier 14 is easily better than Tier 15.
It's a shit ton better than Tier 15, but its still one of the weakest sets we've ever had. Sad when Tier 14 is our best set of the expansion, and tier 10 is the best set we have had all together.
It all comes down to personal taste and what race your DK is, I guess. I've always thought 25-man Tier 7 was the best-looking DK set; it really made my male Orc look intimidating and scary. I find Tier 10 really overrated even if it is a nod to the Lich King's armor. And I just don't get how people prefer Tier 14 over Tier 15; those black roses floating from the helm and the dress just ruin it, while Tier 15 has this whole "monstrous" vibe and has a cool shoulder animation.
It looks like Blizzard took a similar route to what they did in ICC, where all the armor was Scourge Inspired. Only, it seems for T16 they're deciding to use a general theme of God Awful. Every set seems to have some bright, near-neon color, mixed with dull muted colors that just makes both looks horribly out of place, the Art style as well seems to have changed, overall I hope we never see ANYTHING like these armor sets again.
As for the "They're not finished" argument, the only way to possibly make any of these armor sets look good is to scrap them completely.
