It may well have nice stats/bonuses, but unless something has changed it makes you look like some sort of psychotic disco-lizard:http://www.mmo-champion.com/content/2016-Cataclysm-Beta-Build-13195-Hunter-and-Paladin-Tier-11As to that helm...words fail me!

What's wrong with looking like a psycho, disco-lizard?

Ladies and gentlemen, we have our first unofficial name for the tier 11 sets. Hunters are now known as Disco Lizards. Xiani, you are a genius. I will be using this in guildchat tonight.

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye by getting stabbed by a tooth from the head of something they killed and decided to wear.

I don't know why everyone is hating on this set. This is one of my favorites ever. Hmph!

Blizzard's entire armor design has gotten worse and worse with every new tier that has come out since tier 5 in BC. Some of tier 6 was good, but there hasn't been a single armor set I have liked in 3 or 4 years for any class, they all look stupid across the board.

@insaneI disagree on a few points. t6 looked silly, and the sunwell set was shaman gear. But it was nice to see Cryptstalker make a comeback for everyone and Scourgestalker was some of the best looking armor ever. After that though, when Blizz decided to stray from our Stalker roots, that's when things got rediculous.

I for one am fairly pleased with this set, it reminds me of the look of the Tribal armors from Zul'aman. I've always had a soft spot for the dead bird helm (coif of the junglestalker anyone?).this set will look amazing on female Orcs & Trolls :D

You think that's bad, get a load of the heroic version:http://media.mmo-champion.com/images/news/2010/november/tier11_male_m.jpgAlso, what's up with all the steel blue donuts hanging off it? They look like they're going to jingle and spook my prey.

I liked Tier 9 a lot... still do. It's got a helm that looks like a helm, not some mob's skull/face, and has the whole blue/gold Stormwind/Alliance look to it. I've liked most of the PVP sets from Wrath, but of the Tiers I only really like 9 and 5 for looks... and the non-tier Sunwell/badge gear. Leveling mail in Wrath was mostly great, too, but the best helm & shoulder models were only on a couple easily-replaced rewards, with everything ELSE being a mix of the same 3 models over & over.This Murloc/Disco Lizard stuff, though... the helm will be fun to show occasionally, but mostly it'll be hidden. I wonder what the Heroic dungeon gear looks like, and how long I can get away with wearing it to avoid being too decked out in Disco Lizard pieces?

It's my personal opinion, but I think this set is a step-up from many of the other sets I've seen.I didn't even hit level cap until BC, so I didn't get to experience any of the classic raiding and/or get to wear classic tier. And even when I did hit level cap in BC, I wound up in a more casual raiding guild. We only managed to get through Kara/Gruul/Mags before Wrath, (Well, and ZA, but that wasn't a tier raid.) so I only got to rock-out my Demonstalker set. It was a good-looking set, though! I don't really care either-way having seen Rift-stalker on other players. It neither wowed me, nor made me cringe. Gronn-stalker, though... I don't think I've seen a race yet that can wear that set and not look freaky. It looks like something the Blizzard armor designers saw in a nightmare after a night of drunkenly raiding C'thun and simultaneously getting high. Seriously. wtf?The revamped Cryptstalker set fills me with glee. It's a great looking set, and probably my favorite out of all the tiers thus-far.Scourgestalker.... I'll admit doesn't look too bad on some races. The helm looks ridiculous on my female Nelf, though. (Orcs, though, looked pretty bad-ass in this, though.)For the Windrunner sets, Horde definitely got the better end of that deal. Although, I'd hazard that even the Alliance set wasn't TERRIBLE. Just, mediocre at best. And then we have Tier 10.... the Ahn'kahar Blood Hunter set... This set, imo, gets some things right (shoulders), some things wrong (boots. Not tier, I know, but the gear was designed so they'd match as part of the "set") and some things VERY wrong. (I'm sure Lady Gaga assured them that the "penis out of the forehead" look was totally in.) Of course, I may be less harsh on the sets now after having had time to get used to them. (Except T6 and the T10 helm. I mean, seriously, those don't look good on ANYONE.) The new T11 look, though? I'm not entirely confident how it'll look on my Nelf, but I'm not opposed to the overall design. May be kind of funny to make a "Mrglgl!" macro to use whenever I do something, like Kill Shot. I'll be saving my final judgement for when MMO Champion gets up shots of all the races in the set. At least I can be sure the new human hunters will be alright in it.

I like it, now we're Murloc Stalkers!
