A part of me just died a little

With the patch currently being rolled out we'll get to enjoy our new WotLK talents. And I definitely am looking forward to the experience even though the warlock changes are overwhelmingly underwhelming from what I have seen so far.

Still, part of me just died a little after seeing this: Warlock Tier 7

That should simply not be allowed.

After the insanely sexy T6/vengeful and the cool looking merciless gear we now get something that looks like it has been assembled from random pieces of garbage pulled out of the sewers in undercity.

This has to be virtual evidence of some sort that no one at blizzard actually plays a warlock... at least no one with 20/20 vision.

It's things like these that worry me the most. Class balance is all good and well, whether warlocks are OP or not is mostly just dependant on who you ask and how warlocks will scale in wotlk remains to be seen but does any of that really matter when you look like driftwood?

What does it say about the future of the warlock class when even the gear designer/artist can't be bothered to a) finish a gear set or b) think or something at least slightly warlocky looking.

*shakes head* I am not wearing it... maybe parts of it... if I can cover it somehow.

Erm...

I'm not sure you're correct. I have read before that Tier 7 is going to effectively be a recolour of Tier 3.

MMO-champion is listing the following images as the Tier-7 Warlock set:

10-Man Plagueheart Garb


25-Man Plagueheart Garb

From this post. The set you've linked is that which Putress wears in the Battle for the Undercity cut-scene.

Hmmm well that could be the case then since this post is something I prepped a few weeks back but never had time to fact-check before posting.

Shame on me for getting all bent out of shape.

Then again recoloring ye ole T3isn't exactly inspiring either :P

Hey, it could be worse. You could be running around in the Paladin Tier 7 ;).

I wasn't sure how they could recolour Redemption to make it look worse, but somehow they managed it.

No Warlock can EVER complain about their Tier gear and how it looks.. Not when the Paladin community has been suffering through six tiers and only one really good looking set (Judgement was just full of win and sooooo long ago)

and I agree... the 'new' redemption just looks awful. I'll still wear it but I won't like it, not one bit!

Captain The First said...

Oh gawd you're right that looks like some kind of cross between a power ranger and a transformer.

That's just insulting... I really wish I could transfer stats from 1 gear item to another via a transmute or some such... that way I could look pretty much the way I'd want to.

You're right though, paladin choices are pretty bad and won't improve much if they keep re-coloring old tiers.

From what I see the only reason it looks like crap is because humans suck. Check this gear out on Putress. For undead it looks awesome, and I will definately be wearing it. Blows the last 70 arena gear out of the water, and really beats the recolored T3 set (original colors were better). However, nothing has beaten the look of the Nemisis or the Corruptor set so far... wish they'd bring them back.

As for pallies.... You're "holy warriors". You deserve to look like a transformer of light.
