Both Wowhead and MMO-Champion posted previews of the Hunter tier 19 (and PvP) armor today. This is definitely Sylvanas-inspired armor and will probably suit Marksmanship the best with their Dark Ranger talent and the Thas’dorah bow. There are many colors for the various difficulties and PvP tiers, with the Mythic and Elite PvP sets being a little bit flashier as usual.
For the other colors, I’m not sure which goes with what difficulty yet. We won’t know for sure until the tier sets are in the database. When that happens we should also be able to preview the sets on other races with the model viewer on Wowhead.
I actually kind of like this set, even though I’m not sure how good it’s going to look on my dwarf. It looks pretty good on female elves, you can see it on both blood elf and night elf in the Wowhead videos below. The only thing a set like this is missing is a nice black cloak. I think it would be great if there was a slightly transparent black cloak, similar to Alexstrasza’s.
If tier 19 is a Marksmanship-themed set, it makes me wonder if tiers 20 and 21 could be Beast Mastery and Survival themed, specifically to match their artifacts? If that were the case, I’d imagine the BM set to be Titan-inspired to match Titanstrike and the SV set Highmountain/Tauren-inspired to match Talonclaw.
What do you think of the tier 19 armor? Yay or nay?
