Should Blizzard Invest More Effort into Armor Designs?

Mar 27, 2016 7:19 am

Warlords of Draenor is clearly not an outstanding expansion in terms of armor looks and it seems like Blizzard needs to pay a bit more attention to players' needs for good-looking outfits.
There have been quite a few decent World of Warcraft expansions in which gear actually looked good, like in BC and WoTLK, although in WoTLK the Trial of The Crusader raid brought about some really ugly sets. Warlords of Draenor only has a few decent looking equipment sets, and if you look around in-game, you will quickly come to realize that most players use transmogs to hide the not so pleasing ones. And since PvE and PvP sets pretty much look the same with a few alterations in color and effects, this issue spreads to both aspects of the game.

Throughout the history of WoW, Blizzard has managed to come up with quite a few eye-pleasing gear including the Paladin Tier 2 set, the Warlock and Priest Tier 5 sets, the Paladine Tier 12 set, the Warlock Tier 10 set, the Death Knight Tier 8 set and a few more. In the current expansion it seems quite hard to attach to any of the available looks, except maybe the Paladin Tier 17 (Normal or higher) and the Mythic version of the Warrior Tier 17 set.

The current end-game sets are not really outstanding in any way and I am really hopeful the Blizzard will manage to produce better ones in its next expansion, Legion. Since Legion is bringing back the good old Illidan-focused atmosphere, hopefully, it will also bring back the quality of armor designs from BC.  The Tier 19 sets can already be checked out and they actually seem quite good compared to items of WoD, especially the Warlock one.

Do you guys agree that WoD did not manage to bring pleasing armor designs and that there have been plenty of better ones in previous expansions? Feel free to express your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

    I agree. They need some new sets that will flatter the female characters, too.
