Talking of armor, I find Monk armors get uglier as they reach higher tiers. Tier 2~12 look not over the top, yet fantastic. Tier 16 is honestly the worst armor in the game. Reminds me of WoW mage robe.
IMHO there are some lowlvl sets that are over the top and fugly too. Just look at Tier 6 and 7.
Oh and most Helmets are ugly as hell Oo there are only 2-3 Sets that look ok with the helmet on <_< but hey... thats why we have a vanishing dye.
Edit: Looking at the Sets again... we arent the only ones with ugly highlvl sets. Just look at the Barb Sets after T9 Oo
I agree with the caveat that Barb tier 13 is an orgasm waiting to happen thats probably the best looking armor set (and most fitting for the class) I have seen ever in any diablo game or even wow (barring maybe paladin tier 2 from wow)
I will agree that some of the teirs look a bit powerangerish. Yet i don't think we will have the whole set at once. you know what i mean, it will be a mix of so many different tiers. So only time will tell how it really looks. All i know is, i am getting the collectors edition so that smoke or cloud dye better be awesomeness wrapped up in a bottle.
