Druid Tier 13 and Visual Retrospective
Blizzard released another Tier 13 preview and today's post features the Druid set, the Deep Earth Vestments.

Deep Earth Vestments

The design called for "phosphorescent mushrooms, reminiscent of Zangarmarsh," so our main concern was avoiding making a helm that looked like a giant toadstool sombrero. We’re always looking to incorporate interesting light sources within a raid set, and bioluminescent vegetable growth certainly provides that. Twisting, organic shapes are often key elements of a druid set, and this tier is no exception, with writhing plant roots providing a frame for the glowing clusters of fungi.

    I dislike the hood tbh. Or is it a helmet?
    Doesn't look like its part of the robe which hoods normally do. But it still doesn't look like helmet. Maybe it's the cleavage that ruins the look on the hood for me.

    Not keen personally. To me it looks a bit bland and uninteresting, almost like an unusually detailed JP set or something similar.
    Having said that, the beauty of transmogrification means that whether you like it or not won't be too much of a huge issue

    I like this, but the helmet could use some work. Seems a bit... plain. And best tier set? hardly.

    I assume they will reveal the mage set next. Hope they make it something awesome.

    Looks good, but nothing special that you'll remember like T2.

    Looks to be a supremely boring set.

    So many bland sets for druids, this one included.

    Druid tier is meh... Most likely not going to raid on the druid.

    It doesnt come off as anything too special to be honest. It lacks the appeal a tier set should have.

    Those aren't shrooms. Those are rock shards, probably from deepholm. A idea used in season 10 Mage conquest gear.

    Well druids go in "forms" anyway, so...

    Worst set ever, random lvl20 greens mixed with T8, gg blizz, worst gear ever, but thank god for Transmogrifing -.-

    Well, at least it's not not hideously ugly, and I suppose I like it better than the current tier. All the ropes are a bit too reminiscent of hunter T11. Doesn't strike me as "druidish" really, more just...random weights, tarps, dock lines, and glowing scallops found by the pier. I don't really get the marina look.
