lots of the OL sets and Wotlk sets were made for Clases and they look Cool
Cata and Especialy MoP sets are just lame realy there is barely any set that i would say it fits to the class or even look good.
Warlock sets turning into monsters and Aliens
Warrior sets are just WTF realy with bones everywhere in a way that it doesen't even look cool
Rogues getting a Set of Glued together junks.
Mages constantly getting some time traveler sets with google's always
Paladins now those sets are just LOL realy XD
And it really needs to stop - i understand that its not an easy job, but thats why they have experts and stuff. Ive seen countless fan made art of amazing sets, something some random person drew on a napkin while eating (not really but you get the picture - not professionaly)
So anyway, more imaginative and more class oriented.
To many sets atm dont look like they belong to that class, most of all imo is Paladins - and has been the case for a while.
It's all personal opinion. One of the most overused transmog sets is the Paladin Judgement set and I think it looks terrible. You can't please everyone no matter how hard you try which is why transmog is great. I really like the current tier set for Priests, it fits Shadow very nicely.
You mean you don't want to look like a giant golden christmas decoration?
There are bound to come out with an ok set now and again, but they still don't compare back to the old Pvp bg sets and tier armor ...andI don't see people transmogrifying back to it this tiers or seasons armor in two tiers time!
It's opinion, really.
It's all personal opinion though.
Some realism would be fine when designing these sets, like shoulders that are twice the size of characters head is just lookintg stupid :)

Maybe you people should take better advantage of this system. Instead of looking like someone else get a look from older gear that looks great, even some OLD green lowbie items would make anyone look cool.
Just for the record I hope you're not playing on some 1280p or 1680p resolution with texture quality on good and think you're seeing the sets in their full color.
To each his own but the details of the sets aswell as the effects undoubtably have improved.The themes of the sets are probably what's letting you down,but as I mentioned above they're set for the current tier
If poeple wanted detail back then, they would have chosen Everquest 2 instead of wow back then. Sharp, detailed and realistic armour textures belong in games like that, and games like skyrim etc... It's great in those games! But wow is intentially whimsical and light hearted, it doesn't fit.
Old tiers were bold, distinctive and imaginative. The recent tiers all blend into one for me, yeah there may be one or two ok sets.. But that is not enough to redeem the rest!
I play on max settings, for Christ sake, it's an old game, who doesn't play it on max!?
But there are exceptions. The season 11 paladin set is (imo) the best set designed in WoW this far. The tier 13 priest set is not far behind. I know there are many people who don't like the priest set I've mentioned but I think no one can deny how much work went into it, even if you don't like the look.
Maybe there are others but these two stick out for me as being great examples of the designers trying something new and giving their best.
Tier 14/15 and the previews for tier 16 so far leave me rather unimpressed though. :/
