Yes, T7 and T8 were fine with me, T9 is kinda meh, but T10 is just BS. I don't get where flaming shoulders and head fit a priest. Also, I don't get how purple, red and gold are "Priest" colors.
This had better be a placeholder or something. xP
Hum... No offense anyone, but why do everyone seem to assume that armor has to have "graphical appeal" related to the class who'll be wearing it? I'm just saying that maybe, the idea behind the T10 graphics aren't to make it look like "uber Priest armor", but to make it look like armor someone would wear to go fight the Lich King himself.
T10 Cloth armor sets are named...
-Sanctified Bloodmage... for Mages.
-Sanctified Crimson Acolyte... for Priests.
-Sanctified Dark Coven... for Warlocks.
...so yeah, we'll be Crimson Acolytes, wearing Crimson Acolyte armor. Hey, personally, if I'd pick my gear according to looks, I'd probably still be wearing T1, but I'm not a metrosexual dwarf, I don't give a sh*t what I look like, I'm far more interested in itemization and set bonuses than I am in graphics. Just saying...
Let's take a look at other classes' T10... from http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/underdev/3p3/tier10sneak.html
: Looks fine for a Frost-specced DK, but I don't see anything graphically linking this to Blood or Unholy specs.Druid
: Ugly helm. 'nuff said. I thought they wore Leather armor, looks like Wooden armor to me.Hunter
: Who'd really go hunting in that suit? People wearing this are the ones who should be hunted down.Mage
: Well, looks like Mages will finally get the Poison spec everyone have been talking about... Oh wait, they won't? Looks like a suit Reptile (from MK) would wear.Paladin
: Huh, a "Plate" dress... How convenient. Seriously, they also got Fire coming out from their Shoulders and Helm, maybe they're getting rid of the Holy school and putting healing spells in the Fire school? Hey, a Pally healer wearing a dress would make sense, but do we really want our tanks and Ret Pallys to look like casters?Rogue
: No comments... Looks like they're going to be Scuba-diving in IC...Shaman
: Looks good.Warlock
: Looks sick.Warrior
: Looks great.
So, in my personal opinion, only Shaman, Warlock and Warrior's T10 looks good AND class-appropriate.
At least our set doesn't look like sh*t (compared to Druids, Hunters and Rogues, anyways), it simply doesn't look class-appropriate, but then again, as with any thing that is introduced, people first whine about it, because it's not how THEY
would've done it or wanted it, then, people will get used to it and then, 2 weeks after 3.3 goes live, no one will care about our looks anymore...

Final tier looks so much better.http://static.mmo-champion.com/mmoc/images/news/2009/november/tier10_priest_female_hd_rev2.jpghttp://static.mmo-champion.com/mmoc/images/news/2009/november/tier10_priest_male_hd_rev2.jpg
IMO, the light-blue and white one I like most.

Because priests would look weird if their armor looked like plate, and warriors would look odd if they were wearing dresses. (hypothetical.)
