30 Days of Diversity – # 16
Shaman Tier 5 – Cataclysm Set
Ironicly named after the expansion with the least amount of diversity in game, the Shaman Cataclysm set imbues the now very familiar “fire, lava and brimstone” look of scorched earth but did so at a time when Deathwing and the Cataclysm expansion where nothing more than a Power Point presentation on Chris Metzen’s computer.
Given the amount of orange and fire that the latest expansion includes, it is easy to think this set is somewhat stale and tired. However, try and place it back in 2007-2008 and you can appreciate the art and style. Besides another expansion will come along soon enough and make the “fire look” positively rare and exponentially more “cool” (pun intended).
