Rogue "Tier 2 - Bloodfang Armor" was the best in my opinion because the look of that set was badass looking and it inspired fear to people. Fear that you had the king of the stun lock (back in the days) and that you were going to be raped in PvE and PvP. In a certain way...The look still inspires me to what is a rogue, and what it should looks like. The stats weren't that awesome, but the look was worth it.Thank you.
Going by the looks, the paladin tier 2 set is my favourite. Other sets such as the warlock tier 6 were great too when you just wanted to show off with your class, but for some reason I have a fondness for the paladin one. Stat wise I'm not going to say much, I have never found any particular set bonus or other itemization to be worth much rejoicing, though the t7 mage set remains in my mind as something great as it turned a somewhat boring ability, the mana gem, into a reactive direct damage boost. I really do look forward to seeing more set bonuses like that in the future.

Paladin Tier 2 and Tier 12.They look really nice.
Plagueheart (Tier 3) Warlock, from 40man Naxx. Was just epic. Nearly cried seeing NPC's running around Blades Edge wearing it in BC :)
The T6, because it makes undead rogues looks like a badass vampire!
t11.5 of mages. Simply cause the 4 set bonus isn't something that has a chance of happening. It just HAPPENS IN ALL CASTS!
my favorite tier is death knight cuz i love to play with him, got good stats as frost,unholy and blood... For tank: Dodge seems to be the favored stat, appearing on 3/5 pieces; parry, hit and mastery all appear on two pieces. The stamina values seem REALLY high; nearly double what the ilvl 277 T10 set has now. Interesting to see that there are no high-armor (with armor in green) pieces this time around; I liked getting more mitigation from certain pieces instead of just avoidance.The 2 piece bonus is 5% increased DS damage; not impressive but should help with threat, and traditionally the 2p has always done that instead of survivability.The 4 piece is very nice, 50% longer duration for Icebound Fortitude. Anything that improves our cooldowns I'm a fan of, although I'll miss the T10 4p a lot going into Cata.for dps:Haste is heavily favored for the DPS T11, it appears on 4/5 pieces (all but the legs); since haste now improved rune refresh rate, this looks good. hit rating and mastery appear on two pieces, and crit and expertise appear on one. The lack of expertise could make hitting the cap painful, but we'll see. Also interesting to note is that the DPS T11 has the same amount of stamina as the tank set; this fits with Blizzard's intent to close the gap in health pools between tanks and dps.The 2 piece bonus makes up for the relative lack of crit rating on the armor: 5% increased crit chance with Death Coil and Frost Strike.The 4 piece is a more broad dps increase: every time you gain a death rune (from Reaping, Blood of the North, or Blood Tap), you gain +1% attack power, stacking up to 3 times, for 30s.
My favorite tier set is hands-down the Druid T6, Thunderheart. I am possibly a bit biased having played a druid as my main for so many years now, but I think the set hits just the right balance in terms of detail, looking good, and feeling true-to-class. I also love how it can look so good without relying on flashy spell effects or sparkles.
Mage T10 - Bloodmage Regalia, simply because the 2 piece bonus was amazing, and the 4 piece bonus was amazing, so so the 2 AND 4 piece bonus together were so immense.
I'm preferential to the warrior t6. It just looked really cool.
My favourite tier has got to be the warlock tier 5. I mean, you look at that thing, and you can't POSSIBLY mistae it for anything other than an evil, facemelting, DOT-setting Warlock! I mean, the tier 6 looked demony enough but didn't have enough of the "pure evil" look. Runner up has to be paladin tier 2 though. O.o
Warrior T10, why? because it made you look like a viking! who WOULDN'T want to look like a viking
