Fashion Victim

During Burning Crusade I half joked that Blizzard put a lot of work into making the leveling gear look like shit. Mostly I was serious. I still think that it takes a lot of work to make sure that every single piece of gear in Outland clashes horribly with every single other piece of gear. You'd think that at least two of them would match, but no, I never did find two pieces of Outland gear that didn't look terrible together.

Wrath of the Lich King had a much more cohesive look to all their gear. The managed this by only having a couple of sets for each armor type while leveling. If you mixed and matched sets it didn't look great, but they didn't clash horribly like every thing from Outland did.

Sadly Cataclysm seems to have taken a step back from Wrath towards BC. Mornara looks like some sort of colorblind escapee from Outland:

I took this picture after she had finally hit exalted with the Dragonmaw clan. Her reward was the Boots of Sullen Rock, which will eventually match her raiding gear, but for now clash terribly with the rest of her heroic gear.
