Cataclysm: Armor System Change

In a recent Cataclysm beta update, Blizzard has tweaked the armor proficiencies dramatically. Now instead of the previous bland ‘plate,’ ‘mail,’ ‘leather’ and ‘cloth,’  we now have Astral Leather, Blessed Plate, Tribal Mail and more. This seems focused on keeping players in their class’s designed armor. I’m all for it, because keeping the different classes in unique armor – and rewarding players for doing so – will result in more differentiation between them and, I feel, result in a more entertaining game. No one wants to play a game where all the classes feel the same,  do they?
