Find me a group of four artists who could do a better job than the current tier team.
I'm sure it won't be hard given that Blizzard don't hire the best and most experienced in their fields, who definitely haven't been drawing and designing since early childhood, who probably haven't spent years honing their craft and they definately don't head hunt the best talent out their at the moment.
I'm looking forward to what you link, I have a feeling I'll laugh, hard
Different things float different peoples boats, I personally haven't liked most sets in many years, t-mog is there for a reason and to some a god send.

My big issue is the fact that they seem to have forgotten some sets.
For instance, did they really take the S14 paladin set and cut the helmet in half to make T16 rogue? Because they're pretty much the same set.
Also, was T16 warrior originally a Paladin or Druid set? Because it sure as hell wasn't a warrior set. Purple warrior sets make sense.
Yeah it's ridiculous. There's a lot of cloth and leather that look exactly like heavy armour. The armour types need to be removed because it seems they get mostly ignored when it comes to designing gear.
I've enjoyed this expansion, but I can't wait for it to be over just for the ugly themed gear to go away.

I like the current sets and i've liked most of the tier sets this expansion. It's all a matter of opinion. You will like some sets and you will hate some sets. In the end, its just freaking gear you put on for a few months and they've given you the option to CHANGE YOUR GEAR. Really nothing else beyond that has to be said. You have thousands of customize combinations and options at your fingertips ... seriously what more do you want?
Please, stop trying to talk down to people. It just makes you look like an asshole. I didn't even state whether it was concerning Tier 16, just a general note.
P.S. You're not my partner.
I think this tier, especially the PVE sets are the most bland boring pieces of crap they have ever turned out. The priest set looks good, everything else...thank god they implemented transmog.
Yes art is subjective, but I think it boils down to alot of people want class themed sets like vanilla, bc, and the challenge mode sets. These asian/pandaria themed ones are just not going to be as popular. But that's just my two cents.
It was a general statement, apparently you can't figure that out.
For example, Hunter T11 among some of the other T11 sets are reviled by so many to the point where I haven't seen anyone transmogrify into these sets or even seen them in general after their respective patch.
They've lost touch with what made tiers recognizable. You'd be hard pressed to find any set visually connected with its class, design relies more on vague depictions of current expansion or patch with bland colors and uninspired features.
I hate the colors. Everything look so washed out and greyish. This has been going on since WotlK.
Honestly what really bothers me is that they did an amazing job in the Challenge Mode armors which are harder to obtain (I mean Its not that the dungeons are that hard but its quite difficult to find 4 ppl wiling to wipe and try again for a long time) and the ones that are accessible to the majority of the players just look ugly and show some disregard or lack of effort in designing them.
If its a different Team doing Challenge Mode armors I hope blizzard promotes them to do the Tier sets from now on.
