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.
