Ankle sock boots

Paladin
So, on the PTR the new tier isn't a robe as we thought. It has a chestpiece and leggings. This means you can see the boots. Unfortunately the "boots" for the Paladin set are those stupid skin tight shoe model, like ankle socks. Time to start a riot, IMO.
...What do the pants look like? o_O
Sometimes hooves are a blessing.
Boots are for the weak. The set is ugly anyway.
They introduce transmog, then introduce a bunch of armor I'd never want to see myself in. Go figure.

Not bad, actually. It's just frustrating that there aren't any matching boots. Only a pair of socks.

Oh, and they have a pair of DPS boots that match this time. Still socks, though.

This is what happens when people complain about robes.
...Yeah, that, now, looks goofy as hell. -_-
There are always a pair that will match somewhere. You can always mog them out. I think the boots are fine tho. The helm and shoulders on the other hand make me want to cry.
The pants make me think of Leslie Nielsen. They started to run out of material halfway through.

I can't believe they actually changed it.

Went from a decent set to horrid. Those pants look hilarious.
It is getting annoying when plate legguards, boots, or gloves are shaped and look like pieces of tights that some one drew on with a crayon.

The set would look way better if it actually looked like PLATE ARMOR...

It looks like a Mage tier set.

Well, I'd place good money on designs for boots and such to be based on what the tier armor for the class it is supposed to match looks like.

If the first design has a dress/skirt, good chance the boots will be closer to a slipper/foot wrap as the main part of the boot will be hidden on characters with "normal feet" (humans, dwarves, elves, goblins) anyway.

We get that some people don't like the skirt/dress, but they have Tmog to fi that, especially since complaining might make us go from a set with mixed results to one that no one in their right mind would like.
I like the look for both a Season and Tier sets for the Paladins in patch 5.4.
I like the boots. The pants look dumb, but still better than a dress.

You shut your tiny, blasphemous mouth, hiding behind that little gnome. >:(

Robe.

QFT. This set was designed around the assumption that it was going to be a plateskirt.

Now it just looks awful. And that's putting it lightly.
Maybe I should post a link to the armor without the "boots" so you can see that they really are just ankle socks: http://imgur.com/WBCOwVP
