    Actually, it looks like there's a good possibility that the new human guard set will be available to players.

    I hope they eventually let you mog that new Stormwind set, either through vanity rewards or maybe let BS craft mog armour.

    I play a Shaman and it is insanely frustrating trying to form an mog set that I feel truly fits me personally and this is the most awesome armor set I've ever seen other than the dark shaman armor. It is so simple yet so awesome but because Blizzard is a bunch of assholes it's not available to players -.- *to my knowledge*

    ^ They already said they're planning to make the Frostwolf set available as well.

    They made that a tier set, and the tier set for arguably the biggest tier in this game's history.

    Was maining a hunter at the time, was so pissed. Everyone else rocks, we get....an armor set that looks like it was made out of a log. Hell the helm is a frickin log house from the early questing zones I swear.

    Whoever designs the hunter tier/approves it needs to be fired.

    I actually really like that set, just not in that color. I think most Hunter sets look quite good tbh.

    Just goes to show that taste is subjective. They're never going to please everyone, you just gotta go with it.

    I think they could still make really cool and impressive looking armor even if they toned the style down a bit. It doesn't have to look bland or boring even if it was all less bulky and more minimalistic. You know make cloth, mail, leather and plate look like it's actually constructed out of those materials or, at the least, have some distinct difference between them. And make swords and axes actually look sharp and not made out of wood.

    The problem with lower leveling gear, while being more simple, is that it's not meant to be this awesome unique piece of armor that drops from 5000 years old dragon. It's made to look cheap, redundant and less artistic.

    If you want more elegant armor and tiersets then you might want to check out ESO instead. That is pretty much the only MMO I know with non-exaggurated 'more practical looking armor'.

    I wouldn't mind some more Horde and Alliance themed sets again though. I really like the TotC sets, too bad the tier itself sucked as raidcontent lol.
    Warcraft isn't cartoony...jesus...it has some cartoonish elements when you think about unit icons in the RTSs and quotes and things like flying machines, but when you look at stuff like:



    ...and most of the artwork your realize that Warcraft has a deeply functional armor and weapon arsenal which mimics a lot of real life stuff, then adds to it an extra 30 kilograms of plating because everyone in WoW, even Mages, make Dwayne Johnson look like a pussy in terms of muscles.

    I think that:



    Is the perfect example of how far an item should go in terms of embroidery and shiny stuff, but even on that if you take off the pointless artisanal swords it's a perfectly functional shield.

    I prefer the over the top interesting armor. It's one of the reasons I still play wow over other mmo's. I've seen a lot of other games try to implement realistic armor and it just ends up looking boring and generic. But to each his own.

I LOVE that model and would wear that on my paladin over anything with a real looking sword and probably the shield from culling of Strat lol. Does this bother anyone else or is it just me?
    They do implement gear like that, just not as tier gear or "armor sets". They're normally greens, sometimes blues, but when it comes to things with set bonuses, they prefer to go the artistic over the top route, because it is what people like the most. When Vanilla originally came out, T0 and T2 had placeholder art that was fairly generic. The community rejoiced almost in unison when the plain armor was replaced with the artistic and over the top stuff that is currently in place. The bland armor just isn't that fun for most.
    What are you willing to sacrifice?

    All of these will be transmoggable sets in WoD, still not realistic but a lot simpler than data-mined tier sets.

    I dunno, some of the Hunter gear is awesome.

    Still jelly that Hunters got eyepatches in the FL tier and Rogues didn't

    Also, the T11 fish head armour...

    Warcraft III cinematic is going quite a long way back in time. However they do still do armour in style not too dissimilar to that on occasion:

    I wish there were more not so ridiculously huge shoulders. Not necessarily because they look huge but because they tend to almost "hoover" on some models. It just doesn't fit. My nelf toons tend to look pretty odd in many shoulder armors. :s

    We could get NEW classic armours without replacing the old ones (i'll post plate - warrior paladin, but this aplies to hunters, shamans, etc..) speacilly an pvp alliance pvp revamp.

    I'd post links but i cant put links atm.

    I took my hunter to ICC just to get this set (or the offset version at least). I liked it a lot. That plus the bow from the second boss is a legit transmog.

    Edit: I think what the OP is really concerned about is the perceived escalation of ornateness or complexity of armors as the tiers increase. The concern is that when we get to tier 20 the armor will be so outlandish that no one will even use it. What's the purpose after all of them making new armor models if people just transmog them off?
