Why are most of these tier sets model on humans? Nice helm.

oops, that looks like a orc.

Female orc at that.

But to answer your question, it's probably because the human is the best example of how it may look on any character, or "on the rack" as it were, uncoloured by the lumps of an orc or the odd shape of a worgen. I know a lot of armor looks great on a tauren or super cute on a gnome or whatever but on a human I can really see an unskewed view of the set.

I prefer blood elves myself.

Yes yes there are other models that show off the sets nicely. BEs being one, female orcs are pretty straightforward, the Forsaken aren't too far off though their posture can get in the way (the same could be said of dwarves and their beards maybe), even NEs have a pretty normal shape, but then why "mix it up" if you're going to leave some out.The human just makes sense. Everyone who plays is human (or close enough for the blanket statement to work anyhow), so why not? I personally hate seeing tier previews on things that give me no idea how it could look on my character and since we can't all win why not make it as simple as can be?And as these WoW Insider comments sections have proven time and time again, humans are definitely simple.
