We had just finished raiding h.ToC10 last night when healer chat began to erupt.
“XEO OMG!” said Winteros.
“WHAT?!” I replied fervently.
“MMO HAS PRIEST T10 PICS!” Wint spouted with GLEE!
I alt tabbed like no other man has alt tabbed before. Either the interweb was running faster than normal or I was on an adrenaline filled race towards an epic prize. MMO loaded…
“WTF?!” I shouted angrily into healer channel.
Behind a muffled whimper, “There’s no wings?” Shiningstar proclaimed.
“I WANTED WINGS!” Bandrin decreed.
“I thought we were getting wings?” Bryanae, the slightly confused shadow priest asked.
When I first saw priest t9 I wasn’t thrilled with it. I slowly became to like it though. The depth in the textures and the color scheme worked for me.
Priest t10 though… I’ve never hated a set as much as I hate this one. The textures look poopy to me, I hate the color scheme, I want to gouge out my eyes when I look at it!
Ya know, I’d love to be able to say something great about this. That I liked the overall design concept or that I liked the shoulders or the helm or the color scheme… but I don’t.
The best part of this… might be the shoulders. I’ve always been a fan of the cloth that hangs down from them and maybe the glow isn’t as bad as it looks when it is in action.
The color scheme… gold and purple… I really hate it. I hope they show us some screenies of recolored versions but I’m guessing this is the one that will haunt us until the xpac.
This brings us to the helm.
What is that helm?
Srsly… its the worst helm I’ve ever seen (not true, but we’ll talk more about that later).
Priest t10 wasn’t the only thing released though. The paladin tier 10 came out as well. I like their set for the most part. The shoulders are bitchin’ and the armor looks tough so grats to the pallies.
or wait… what is that?
Do you see that?
WTF is that?!
Did Tonka design this outfit? Do they store snacks in it? Is it a chin strap? Maybe its a big stab me here sign so someone knows where it’ll be fatal.
For srs though… it’s likely just a texture issue. I wonder if there is a paladin set though that is pink like this? Wouldn’t that be awesome!?
I think the helm would certainly look a lot better if it was closed. The top hood lookes like some type of skull. I think its interesting that the shoulders and to a lesser extent the gloves look like they have molten lava pooring out of it. Very similar to this paladin maybe?
Priest t10 scores a 3 (recolor and fixed helm) possibility of a 5.
Pally t10 (with pink tonka scoop) a -43 (with fixed tonka scoop) a 5.
