Some nice color palettes and coordination going in all of those sets though, I will definitely concede that.

Given the options in the Bliz universe, there are definitely better colour palates available in the platekini sets than in the other sets. Unfortunately, that makes accessorizing them very problematic, so when they are done well you can appreciate the work involved.

The others sets are often quite ugly, in my opinion. Pieces are ridiculously impractical and colour schemes tend to boring browns. The massive WWF-style belts, clunky boots, and Popeye gauntlets are just fugly.

But more fundamentally, there is a whole genre of art out there celebrating the platekini, that some of us grew up with. Artists like Luis Royo, Boris Vallejo, and Julie Bell created artwork for the covers of the fantasy novels I read as a lad.

So in that way it's also homage to a genre of art and a certain age of fantasy.

Thanks :)

It's funny, that's just the T14 LFR shaman set + Normal No'Kaled and Blackthorn's. Just looks "right" on the female tauren to me. I don't like the blue color of the T14 normal set at all (the Heroic color is awesome, but I'm never going to have access to that). The gloves are the wrong ones - I got both Resto and ELE gloves from Sha, and just finally got LFR ones today so I can fix that now.

Heh yeah.

I have a few trading cards sets with artwork from that type of artist. Mostly book and magazine covers, but some other art they did as well. Lots of platekinis. :lol:

<goes and looks>

Ah, found it.

Sets by: Larry Elmore, Clyde Caldwell, Jeff Easley, Christos Achilleos, and Darrell Sweet.

This gives me so much perspective that I actually started hating plate-kinis less because of it. Thanks for that insight!

so, i've decided on going with full T2 and Bloodmoon, Reborn on my pally. T2 because it's completely gone from my server...no one wears it anymore. Bloodmoon because i never made it in bc...made the executioner and stormherald...vendored stormherald...so dumb.

now i'm tryin to decide if i'm making stormherald for my pally, make the 1h axe for my warrior (or one of the 2h weapons)...or make dragonstrike for my shaman (who goes ele on occasion).

I believe the mace is the Empress Shekzeer one.
