    Wow, it’s so fortunate for blizzards asset creation that goblins heritage armor looks just like a generic, decade old set of mail

    Good to see they’re still cranking out the hits in this shambling corpse of a game

    Can we please stop with the curves? Why does every single part of every single weapon must have curves? And while we're at it, let's also get rid of the short pole weapons and short staves because why the heck do they think those are a good idea?

    why do they believe they have to have eyes and tentacles on every weapon just because it is a Old God raid?

    8.3 will be released in 2020.

    Those textures scream 2005.

    I bet they are focusing alot on 9.0 now, and a bit on the look of Nya'lotha.

    Gear appearance on BFA is one of the reasons I never bothered to step into a singe RAID FINDER or other difficult levels on this expansion. With the Tiers gone they pulled out extremely dated gear, with minimum to none particle effects. I could pick any of the 12 classes of this game, gear wouldn't fit any class fantasy.

    The second reason is that classes are boring as hell. I fail to see this as an EXPANSION at all... I looks more like a Hard reset.

    I can't believe that they think that Removing skills, Artifacts, passives and tier gear is EXPANDING the experience.

    I would be ok on never stepping into a raid on this expansion if M+ were fine.

    M+ is super annoying on this expansion and some classes completely useless in the beginning of the expansion.

    I was maining Guardian druid for like 14 years of WOW. Imagine not being accepted for M+ in first two Raid tiers (and paying for that treatment) of this expansion because of bad class design. I'm not playing this game currently and it's been one of the best decisions that I did. I'm learning flute, learning culinary school, reading books, learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Learning another language with my free time now.

    I thank Blizzard for screwing their own game, the only one who could make me stop playing their casino were themselves, and they did it!

    Not as good as it is to see the people still salty about the game 15 years down the line.

    This whole "drops look like the place they come from" thing really isn't working for me.
    It clearly isn't working for the developers neither.
    All they create are sets that don't go with anything. The best sets (details, unique features etc) of the expansion have been the Warfront higher tiers, and those are race themed rather than themed by Darkshore or Arathi. Most of the Heritage sets have also been pretty solid.

    Class fantasy + Raid theme has clearly been a much better approach for the past decade+, hopefully they'll go back to it.

    I agree on the warfront ones. They are rather good, i actually wore it for about a week or 2, before switching back to Legion-sets.
    They are probably also the reason why we will be seeing SW-human,orc,night-elf and forsaken heritage armor dead-last. Since, you know, we already got 4 per race with these.

    My thought exactly. They look awful, all of them.

    Well they're all ugly as shit.

    I guess the nice thing about adding transmog is they no longer have to design anything that looks nice. Don't like it? Mog it!

    they aren't though, Japanese ones are don't get me wrong, but medieval swords were used to break bones, etc.

    In fact after the battle, and the people came in and robbed the dead soldiers of their belongings, the majority of the soldiers could lie for days before succumbing to death unable to move, impossible to heal

    Fuuuuuuugly, every single one of them. Forcibly reminded of the Legendary Rogue daggers from Dragon Soul, which were hideous.
