I Think You’re Confused, Blizz

If you walked into a Draenei dressed like this in the streets, would you think she is a priest?  No!  You’d go, what the fuck, since when are space goats warlocks?

Also, what’s with the mild belly baring, yet a very high neck?  Does that even remotely make sense?



I mean the chains could give an interesting twist to “discipline priest” I suppose…

    I hear ya. I don’t play a priest (I play mage), but why does all the ICC stuff make us look evil? You’d think we’d want to look just the opposite.

    IMO, T6 Priest gear (I think, BT stuff) was the most awesome. So shiny and, well, holy-looking. Whereas, mage T6 made us look like lightning rods.

    I was actually thinking to myself from looking at the pic, “Goats can be locks now!?!? o.O”

    Uh, yeah…don’t see the whole priest part of that outfit.I’ve been disappointed with a lot of the recent tier gear looks to be honest.I think Blizz needs to fire the new designers and bring back the old ones. The new stuff sucks, B!

    Your point is a bit disingenuous though, because you’re wearing the emblem robe there, not priest tier! So warlocks and mages and adventurous healers of higher armor classes can wear the same thing…of course it doesn’t look very priestly. : )

    @ambient – Point, but the actual priest teir also looks very warlocky.

    Purple is a warlock color, we’ve known this since vanilla!

    I want to look warlocky. I want to look magey or priesty or whatever. I don’t want to look dirty brown with a bug on my head!!

    Oh this is classic… I feel exactly the same like you do.
    THAT is what my priest is looking right now… no shiny white angelic priest anymore D:
    I want good BC times back! I look like a goddamn rotten warlock..

    I agree! I’m pretty much wearing the same outfit except my belt doesn’t even match, it’s yellow instead of green. HATES IT. It looks like a plate belt, not cloth.

    With Tier 10 Blizzard wants you to know that priests are the original frat boy collar poppers, bros.

    “Warlocks have feelings too you know :(”

    That little frowny thing doesn’t throw anyone.

    But it is true!

    I even fail at pvp. Last night I ran away from a level 80 priest (I was 76), the priest wasn’t even shadow.

    That should tell you something.

    I see an Alliance toon and I run like hell and hope they didn’t see me.

    I too play a priest, http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Scilla&cn=Fertzane , and have LOVED the past 2 tiers, but then again I play shadow. Horde T9 looked like they took the staunch and regale T8 and made it all evil and ready for some face melting. T10 gives me not only a hood, but I look all “Plague-y” too boot! Perfect for a loyal Forsaken Shadow Ascendant(No I am not and have never been a member of the Royal Apothecary Society, honest(ish)).

    As you feel out of place, remember, your shadowy contemporaries are finally happy to not be wearing a halo and wings.

    The Druid T-9 Robe is the same way on NE Females. High neckline looks like she’s being choked by leather, but a GIANT HOLE in the chest area showing off some SERIOUS landscape. (Like big enough to fee a small baby though. :P)
