I think that though the armor sets are wonderfully done, they are missing something that makes them feel like iconic class sets. They feel far more like a raid theme set than anything else.I know that Blizzard didn't specifically state that they were going to theme for class, but this is the perfect opportunity to do so.Personally, and I know I'm going to get blasted for this, I'd almost rather see an update to the original dungeon sets and T1, T2 (selectively, of course), much like Blizzard redid Naxx-60 for T7. In this isnatnce, it's not being lazy - it's taking designs that pretty much defined most of the classes and updating the theme with the new technology, polygons, etc. Like what if the new Stormrage set had white glowing, ethereal antlers and claws on the shoulders? And the Prophecy tier is pretty much a perfect fit for Mists, especially given the extra bells and whistles Blizzard now has the capability of adding.If Blizzard focused on theming purely on class flavor for Challenge modes and themed for content on tiers, both would stand out far more than one set being slightly less shiny content-themed than the other.And it is no coincidence that a lot of transmog folks initially make a bee-line to the oldest tier content.In any event, I want to look like a druid, not a dead tree. Did dead tree with the flaming unibrow waterbuffalo. Not a fan of that look. You would think that in such a lush land, the druid nature-themed set would reflect the lushness of the Pandarian lands, not it's wasteland.

I would actually love the higher polygon versions of old sets. (I have some of the recolored versions, but not the actual old sets). Being a tauren with antlers and horns, with leaves or eagles on my shoulders is awesome (course I also like the AQ dungeon set on my druid-one piece away from the full thing).
