One of the World of Warcraft staples is coming back but the fans are note exactly thrilled about it, after years of appealing to the devs.

World of Warcraft players have enjoyed collecting armour sets from various dungeons and raids for well over a decade and the staggered rollout through tiers gave this race and grind much more longevity. The community got so used to the cycle of obtaining the new tiered gear that they found themselves wanting more after Blizzard removed this type of progression in 2017, when the ill-fated Battle for Azeroth came around.

It is easily one of the worse-rated expansions in the WoW collection but Shadowlands has probably won the throne for the most reviled one ever. So when Blizzard attempted to win some goodwill by bringing the tier sets back in 2021, one would have hoped for the best but one would also be wrong.

When the fans saw the tiered armour sets, pictured above, they immediately became disillusioned because pretty much every class looks the same in them, with only minor alterations between them.

Furthermore, the set is based only on the Kyrian covenant, which didn't sit well with most players as many sided with the likes of Necrolords or Venthyr, which is why they found it weird to wear clothing related to the angelic creatures.

Anyway, the fans expressed their distaste with the new sets in various creative manners but calling everyone in the armour priest or paladin is probably the most accurate description.
