Wow, that was NOT what i expected. I guess it could look pretty cool on some races, and i like how different it is while our new PVP set is almost completely identical to the traditional shaman attire from warcraft 3. Will stick to blastoise tho.

The new ele setbonus seems alot weaker than the old one, but i like using Fulmination more in our rotation so thumbs up for fun set bonuses > passive ones

What amuses me about pretty much all of the sets, is that no one really fits the theme of "Siege of Orgrimmar". We get fancy ball-light stuff and all that, i've never seen that in Orgrimmar or on any of their allies.

Pretty dissapointed in the set, was hoping for something really good looking due to the amout of time we had to wait for it compared to other classes (i'm not sure if all class tier's have been released yet tho). But i guess i'll have to agree with Daikazan, i will stick to blastoise aswell.

Looks like crap tbh. I'm sick of getting ugly looking tiers all the time, this one takes the biscuit for being one of the worst though. What's next blizzard? You'll give us arcane blast?

Doesn't look shamanistic in the slightest.

Looks like a nice draenei set, however I must agree that they just seem to have dropped the ball on set themes, which makes me sad in a sense.

Wasn't that the PvP elemental set bonus? If it was then that change is awful...

Ehhhhhh

*Checks current set*

It's going to take one heck of a good set to make me change my transmog (Aside from better matching boots).

This is the worst shaman set i have ever seen! EVER!
The artist who thought of that along the crew above him that approved it must have no knowledge of hsamans.
I looks like a druid set (because of the feathers) crosspecied with a mage set (shoulder animation).
This shaman tier should have a relation with elements (with Thrall coming around) and perhaps showing dominance over Sha of Pride and Garrosh...
This set is not what it should be, i am so happy we have transmogrification, i bet most shamans with this set will have it transmogrified..and if blizzard can get the stats who hasn't and who has transmogrified will realize they failed the looks of that tier for shamans.

Alot of truth to this, I feel that the PvP sets have been more appropriately designed for PvE in 5.4.

The Shaman PvP set reminds of the WC3 Shaman for example, the Hunter set has horns sticking out the back of their shoulders etc.

The PvE sets baffle me. None of them feel like they have any relation to Orgrimmar, Garrosh, Troll rebellion, Thrall, you name it. The theme of the sets make absolutely 0 sense, glad I'm just doing PvP tbh.

I actually think its cool they for once make our gear embrace the astral / spiritual side of the class. I mean we have alot of shamanistic looking sets to chose from already, whats so wrong with diversity?
If i was a dranei, dwarf or tauren i could definetly see my self wearing that set, but i cant see it work on an orc or troll at all

Yeah it looks cool in it's own right but it doesn't really fit the theme of the raid, basically none of the PvE sets do. I buy the argument though, just seems they should have waited until the next tier or something.
