    Someone commented on Facebook that it's a Cataclysm set in Warcraft. Don't know how true that is, but...

    I'm sure if it's even close, we'll get tons of people complaining they don't want Warcraft in Diablo.

    Truthfully, I don't mind it. Warcraft made Blizzard a household name, and without a million bazillion different flagship series', I don't blame them for having crossovers and nods.

    As a former Warcraft player, I could see that someone might think it is a little bit like the Warrior's tier armor set at the end of Cataclysm (http://www.wowhead.com/itemset=-466). However, I think that it looks much more like what we would have expected a nephalem to look like in the first generation. It looks both angelic and demonic.

    Man I really love the way this game plays I honestly just wish they went into the other direction with character's art design. I like more traditional, modest armor/weapon designs. I'm really okay with the flamboyancy of some weapons, but I really think these armor designs are just gaudy.

    I didn't make this or anything, it was posted on the official Diablo Facebook Page :)

    That guy was trollin'. I doubt Blizzard would post a WoW set just for the lolz.

    It is still a WIP though, I'm sure.

    Yeah, I can see your point. This set isn't bad but the shoulders are a bit over the top, imo.

    At least we have transmog now :)

    I personally I HATE most of the armors in D3 specially the shoulders and helms and this set is no exception... transmog inc. to that helm.
  • #16
    I've seen before that Blizzard artists want a nice looking silhouette and therefore make distinctive shoulders and helms that view well from afar. From a design point of view, that's very logical and sensible. From a players point of view, it's starting to get a little ridiculous.

    I much prefer sensible designs to ones with over the top bits sticking out. I understand the need for identifiable shapes and stuff, and the fact it's a fantasy world not real life, but I'm worried this could be the first in a downward spiral. As already mentioned, the WoW sets have gone downhill over the years, I'm hoping the Diablo ones don't. It would be a shame to not like any of the new art and end up transmogging it back to previous sets.

    Transmogrification!

    Or vanishing dye. I've been rocking the minimalist look for a while now.

    Exactly this. I for one LOVE over the top armor, it just adds to the high fantasy of fighting angels / demons with weapons and spells.

    Luckily they added xmog for you people who hate it, and vanishing dye =P win win!

    That's true, but it kinda sucks that one has to stick with the 'old' (and, therefore, already seen many many times) look because the 'new' look is so over the top.
    I prefer a more realistic approach to armour styles.

    Then again, the original basic armor tiers are almost never used. Take shoulders fx.. Everyone is either using crafted shoulders or Vile Wards. You could customise your character with tier 3 or 4 armor sets, and it'll look spanking new 'cause it's almost never seen. :) I plan to!
