Which order armour do you think is best? You can seperate it into armour types.

If admins would add a poll itd be great

Heavy: Vigil
Light: Priory
Medium: none

General: heavy Vigil, by far. You see it more than the other 8 sets together.

Vigil generally scores best imo, it's good on all 3 armor classes.
Priory looks good for medium and light, but the heavy armor is rather bland.
Whispers has it shining parts, but as a whole I don't like any of them.

Different tastes. Also, clips horribly with Charr.

Ick! Didn't even think of clipping.
I guess that means I don't really like any of them. :(

The only medium armor I LOVE is the ascalon (AC armor) but on asura. It looks AMAZING. Simple yet elegant and shows willingness to kick ass. Looks awful on everyone else though.

Oh and replace the helm with that crafted monocle and you have a great look.

Let's see...

Vigil - Heavy
Whispers - Medium
Priory - Light

I love the way the Whisperer medium armor looks on human females.

I love the way the Whisperer medium armor looks on human females.

Weird how the stereotypical setup: Vigil being heavy armor 'tough guys', Whispers being sneaky thieves (medium) and priory being caster'y (light) ends up almost always being everyone's favorite looking setup. Do we find it pleasing because we all internally buy into the stereotype & just think that is how the armors are supposed to look?  ... did ANet graphical guys buy into the stereotype & spend the most time on those sets, making the stereotype sets look best on purpose?  Irrelevant overall I know, but I find that stuff fun to think about.  Oh and BTW, I agree with your choice on what looks best. :)

Though, if we're talking about clipping... personally I really like the Vigil medium pants but they're broken and clip horribly on my Norn female.  Filed a bug report weeks ago ... and posted in the official forums about it too. .. really wish they'd fix it so I can wear my pants and dye them how I want without looking like my legs melt through my boots.

heavy: none, I really don't like any of it.
medium: vigil pants (female human/norn), whisperers shoulder.  not much else.
light: none, I really don't like any of it.

other than a few specific items, I'm really not a fan of the order armors overall.

There's only two sets of Order armor I've actually owned so far, and both on Asura. The light Whisper's armor looks great IMHO (note that the face mask is the starter necro mask, I don't like the Whisper's helm):

Light Priory armor is very nicely detailed but it looks like an oversized ballroom dress on Asura. It would look better on taller toons I reckon.

I've got heavy vigil armor planned for my warrior toon when it hits 80.

I can see why people wouldn't like the Whispers armour on a human male but on a human female it looks really good.

I think the medium and light armors look great, but the heavy looks horrid.

Tastes may differ indeed ^_^

But it's true, some armour sets are COMPLETELY different for females.

Heavy: Vigil
Medium: Vigil
Light: Whispers

The Vigil heavy armor is masterfully ornate without falling into the category of "gaudy"; the Vigil medium armor is very suitable for Engineers and maybe some flavors of Ranger; and the Whispers light armor is one of the most elegant and "dark" armor sets available for casters.

The Medium's a bit of a toss-up between Vigil and Whispers armor for me, though; the Whispers armor is pretty great, too.

Rather sick of armor magically obliterating my Charr's horns, though, which all of the light sets save the Vigil one do.
