I'm a little afraid of how my tauren priest is going to look in that.

I'm sure I saw the priest helm in a shop in Venice :)

The priest set is my favourite too. It has a very stylish creepy masque thing going on that I absolutely love.

Actually, it's re-airing again currently. And I absolutely agree! :lol:

Kudos for a tier set that not only manages to escape the fuglybat but actually looks pretty sweet. So far the only thing I dislike is the Warlock hat because... frankly, it looks to me less like tentacleface and more like a catfish.

I do not want my poor lock to look like a catfish. Eugh. (The rest of the dress looks great though.)

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

I love the priest set, it's the best of this tier.

I hate the hunter set. Really hate it. It's non-descript, and dear God the color disaster if we mix those sets.

Time to start my tmogging adventures.

For grading the sets, I'd say...

Priest A
Shaman A
Mage A-
Warrior B
Druid B-
Rogue B-
Paladin A-
Hunter D
Warlock F

Sadly, I'm quite disappointed with hunter T13. A dragon theme? Awesome, especially if wing-shoulders are involved, considering how incredibly jealous I was of druid T11. (Sopretty!) But an undead dragon theme? Bleh. One thing I am completely and utterly sick of in hunter tiers is skeletons and skulls and undead-ness all over the place. Not to mention how completely bland this set looks - something hunter tiers did NOT need more of.

I know tiers often end up based on whatever the villain of the expansion is, and undead enemies show up a lot in the game's stories, but we seem to get this a lot more than most other classes. And you know what? Hunters, to me, are a lot more about animal companionship than about slaughtering the poor things and turning them into a new hat. I'd like to see that reflected just a tiny bit more, you know? Or maybe a steampunk style hunter tier, considering how well Engineering goes with the class. (Mmmmyep, jealous of mages this time around. XD) Man, I was so, so hopeful for hunter T13 too, since I've loved every other set shown so far.

The priest tier 13 there, oh my god YES. I just. Eeeeeeee. Why do priests get the best gear! I don't care, I have a priest alt that I love to death! Yaaaaaaaaay!

Definitely must say that Priest and Mage get my vote for best set this time around. However, is DK out yet? There isn't one posted on the OP.

PRIEST SET IS AMAZING.

The Hunter set is kinda okay, but it's a lot of more of the same.
At least these ones come out with Transmog...

Hunter set looks like the undead warhorse mount to me, not a dragon. So you can be an undead warhorse sitting on top of your undead warhorse!

Well, thankfully transmogging means I don't have to like or dislike the set graphics anymore. :)

I really like most of the hunter set. Well, okay. I love the helm! The shoulders are nice as well. The rest is a bit bland, but hey. I'm happy!

Edit - got a good look at the priest set. Holy crap, that is incredibly BA! Wow!

priest set = HOLY FUCKING AWESOME :D :D :D :D :D :D

hunter set = eh. i was seriously hoping for a cobra shot inspired theme. cobra head/hood for helm, etc. sadly, like the overwhelming majority of hunter tier gear, i really dislike this new set. that would have suited death knight better

I LOVE THE PRIEST SET. It's totally got a Venetian Carnivale kind of feel, and I LOVE IT.

Hunter tier, not so much.

Unless the Death Knight set is majorly amazing, I'm saying that Priest set wins for best look, by FAR.

But I wonder, what mechanic/ability do the Priest and Hunter sets embody?

another terribly ugly set of gear....ugh :( apparently bliz designers think that not only are we "hunters" but we must be "head-hunters" because again with the helmet being made from the skull of our enemy!! Good thing I also have a mage. that gear doesnt look so bad.

Blizzard took a necromancers armor and mixed it with Dragonstalker Armor, then just gave it the “everything is brown” Wrath color scheme. It would look more appropriate on a warlock than a Hunter. However, now with transmogrification it does not really matter what Blizzards’ teams of artists come up with you can just make your gear look however you want so there’s the good news.
