Hopefully this hasn't been asked before (a quick search didn't show any results):

Which is / are your favourite tier set(s) - either by looks or by stats?

For me it's (looks):

https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=523/dreadnaughts-battlegear - in my opinion the most badass looking set!
https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=217/judgement-armor - awesome and beautiful
https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=512/darkmantle-armor - others may prefer Bloodfang, I like this more

(stats):

https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=493/genesis-raiment - every hybrid druid's wet dream
https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=398/warlords-sanctuary - same (at least for Horde - Alliance may wet themselves as well, but... for different reasons *grin*)

All of them Razz
Nah probably https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=217 . I had that + https://classic.wowhead.com/item=17182 on my level 80 WOTLK paladin before transmog and I looked so hot. This time around I'm angling for T0.5 https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=515 as I have mentioned in another thread already.

Unfortunately, I don't think it's even close. I like the Priest sets, but this one is a level above any other, IMO.

Best sets IMO are
Paladin Tier 2
Rogue Tier 2
Priest Tier 2
Warrior Tier 2

They really did a good job with "most" of the tier 2.

I have to agree that Judgement Armor is the best, but one that hasn't been mentioned yet that's very nearly as good (IMO) is Warlock T3, https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=529/plagueheart-raiment . Shaman T3 ( https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=527/the-earthshatterer ) and Druid T3 ( https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=521/dreamwalker-raiment ) are also great.

My theory is Blizzard went all out with the Judgement set because the bananadin T1 set was so bad.

https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=208/lawbringer-armor aka the "Lawlbringer"

Shaman T3 ( https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=527/the-earthshatterer )

True, that's another amazing looking set - even though being a pure resto set I always found its deceiving name and looks kinda amusing.

"Whoa, look at that shaman - he looks totally intimidating!
What will he do - will he cast https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=10414/earth-shock ? https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=29228/flame-shock ? https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=15208/lightning-bolt ? https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=10605/chain-lightning ?

Wait, he's about to cast! What will it be?
It's... https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=10468/lesser-healing-wave !?"

Genesis Raiment, so fucking ugly haha.

Warlords Sanctuary on a Tauren is fucking beautiful, I want it, but will never get it. Fuck that grind.

Yeah, Paladin t2 is so good. But I think warrior t2, shaman t2, and paladin t3 are also really cool. That being said as far as actually using items, I think tier sets for some classes are super overrated.

Heh, yeah - I'd say T 2.5 with the bug armour theme overall isn't the most beautiful tier of sets.
However, I think Genesis helm and shoulders aren't looking so bad.

If you like the looks of Warlord's Sanctuary, but can't stand the grind for rank 13, you could instead go for https://classic.wowhead.com/item-set=539/champions-refuge , the rare rank 10 set, which is also very nice - both regarding stats and looks.

True. Afaik T1 isn't particularly useful for many raid specs. Itemization got better with T2 and especially T3.
People will probably still sporting their T sets instead of an optimized clown suit while idling in the capitals.

I would love to get Rank 10 for all the blue PvP gear, but I don't think I'll have the time or patience. I think I got to rank 6 or 7 in vanilla.....

:biggrin:
