Simple question, imo.
Aside from their very recent attempt to add more visual depth to belts and shoulderpads, do you think that Blizzard will ever show the same attention to the other pieces of gear?
Many pieces of Cata and MoP gear have belts that actually have an individual bit of modeling attached (see: Challenge Mode Gear, Tier Sets), aside from the traditional 2D texture that simply covers the aforementioned position on the player's model (See: Pretty much everything else).
With the new models coming to us with the next expansion, the previously used textures will most certainly begin to show a glaring juxtaposition when put onto the newer, higher-poly characters. In fact, you can see this now with the recently released screenshots and videos of the WoD press event.
When, if ever, do you think Blizzard will begin to show more attention to the modeling of the majority of armor?
