Armpits on armor are a traditional weak spot because of the flexibility needed there. :wink:

Actually, I think they simply try to do too much with the tier sets, and wind up over-doing it. Leveling my DK, I'm struck at how much I like some of the Wrath leveling plate, compared to the tier gear.

But looking at this first round of Cata tier gear, and it looks like most of it is centered around the early raids. (underwater and elemental stuff). Hopefully the later Cata tiers will be more polished and have a more epic feel.

Is that new knowledge to you?
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

No, but it does make a swallowing animation.

Point being that they overdid the elemental graphics, and hunters look like something you catch off the bottom when fishing in seaweed...

I really liked my L55-ish DK starter gear. I thought that was a rather well designed set and, with the quest rune sword, looked good. Pity that, from that point on, all the DK gear looked like crap :(

Death Knights are supposed to use Rune Swords. We start the game with one, we get another part-way through the starter zone, and then ... nothing. The next time you see a rune sword is inside ICC, laying on the floor.

Sure, you can rune-engrave anything you can wield, but its really not the same. Way to 180 your own lore, Bliz.. WTG.

Blizz originally was gonna have blacksmiths craft two epic weapons in Wrath of the Lich King aside from the mace. A two-hander sword and a two-hander axe identical to the starting blue DK weapons. Eventually, they decided against it.=(

I honestly never thought about it like that, but you're right. This is one of those cases where less would be more. This new paladin armor set, it seems like they're trying to cram everything at us at once - underwater theme, crystal theme, holy theme, light theme, etc...

I think if they'd just settled on a more simple theme with less flash, it would've looked a little better.

Aside from the helm, I REALLY love the warrior tier. And that makes me a sad panda.

I mean come on! It looks like a fishnet bodyglove underneath the plate bits! LOVE. IT.

I have always hoped that Blizzard will implement a show/hide shoulders option. I doubt they ever will though.

definitely not, shoulders are the primary part of the silhouette that lets people easily recognize you.
