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.


Looks like a bug to me. The texture looks the same as the Robe texture, just applied to the wrong mesh. With the boots being how they are, seems to me PTR is just bugged and using the wrong mesh for legs (using the T9 mesh that's also used for crafted ilvl 450 gear).
PTR for one, but regardless the set is ugly even if the sock boots stay.

I put something up in the bug report forum. Remember guys, these items used Tier 15 as placeholders before being implemented in game, and the mesh in the screenshots is the Tier 15 mesh. Probably just a left over flag from the T15 placeholder.

Tier 10 used a skirt model, when it was clearly a texture meant for leg plates. I don't have a lot of faith in Blizzard "correcting" this.
/vomit. That set looks horrendous now.
Dammit Blizz. Give us back our robe, or I camp Orgrimmar for fifteen hours with 200 Alliance.

Your choice.
Get your spandex ready! They've updated it with the latest PTR patch!

T10 looked great.
DK tier 14 chest was a dress. Explain that.
DKs roll in a skirt.

Sewn on kneepads and everything.
Trying to get on the new PTR patch, but the log in screen shows a skirt model now. Not sure yet if it's a full dress (chest piece) or just a skirt yet (leggings). Will update after I get information.

Edit: Chest is a dress. Leggings are still spandex and boots are still ankle socks. So as long as you have the chest equipped, it won't look goofy.
See ? Nothing to worry about. ;)

The pants are still spandex and the boots, which drop in DPS flavor this time, are ankle socks and look RIDICULOUS.

Still, better than before.
Eh, for those Rets that don't want to 'mog over it, there's nothing to worry about; I went through Wowhead's loot tables for SoO the other day and I'm betting gloves are gonna be our best off-set item again, so you'll be forced to use tier chest to cover the pants and slippers anyway.
