I like it except for, once again, the helm. Why do they keep giving Hunters the ugliest helms in the game? There hasn't been a good one since T2.

TBH, I think Giant and Dragonstalker have two of the most horrible helms ingame. Same for Beaststalker. The mask just looks awkward imo.

I have taken to using this helm for transmog. I like the way it looks on a Night Elf. It doesn't completely cover the face or hair and just looks Elvish to me.

The tier 16 will look really good on my female space goat, and horrid on my dwarf.

I also wonder what tiers are going to share colors. 3 colors of the set, four tiers of raiding difficultly.

lol trapstalker. and the bonuses have all to do with snake trap.

2pc your arcane shot has an % chance to cause a snake trap to drop at the targets feet. all the snakes instantly die."
4pc when you drop an explosive, frost, or ice trap, you instead drop a snake trap.

While this feature of the Grimtotem Spirit Guide wasn't exactly intended... - it will still be possible in future for everyone who wishes to tame this NPC to do so

Oooo I like that helm, total deep sea diver style! Kinda reminds me of the X-52 Rocket Helmet!! Also the leather 'sack' leather helm.

Not such a fan of the belt or shoes, shoulders look alright.

Let's not forget the weapons... *ahem*...

Yuck.

Other than the Klaxxi inspired bow, nothing at all to get excited about. It does seem the the armor artists are leaning on that tmog crutch more and more.

Is there some reason why Hunters and Rogues need to have runway lights on their armor? I mean really, do we need to glow in the dark. :mrgreen:

Would be cool if the light on the hunter helm actually worked as a light..

Haha, love the Trapstalker set; gave me a good laugh. Honestly though, I'd wear it over the T16 set since I think it's just ugly and, as others have said, doesn't fit with the "Hunter" theme imo.

Love the Snake Trap-inspired set bonuses too :lol:
