Quite an image heavy post today. Just a warning. Tier 9 MMOC (and blizz) have posted some previews of the suspected Tier 9 gear which will be introduced with patch 3.2. Unlike previous patches, the new tier will have special graphics for the Horde and Alliance. Unlike previous patches, this does mean some classes will have mostly re-colored versions of the other classes... See blizzard's under dev page. They do look "gladiatorial" though :P But for total effort, instead of making Tier 9 x 10 classes. They are making Tier 9 x 2 factions x 4 armor classes = 8 sets (20 recolors though, which are generally zero effort). So, in total Blizzard needs to design two armor sets less. Smart guys, saving effort. Alliance (Warlock) Alliance (Priest) Alliance (Mage) Horde (Shaman) Horde (Hunter) Horde Rogue / Horde Druid, Alliance Deathknight / Paladin / Warrior images here. Mostly recolors this patch it seems. Random Ravings of a Madman - Page 2 (See the comic page on Drunk Duck for mirror.) Art by ipoppet at Deviant Art.
