Warrior – Colossal Dragonplate


A simple concept: Let’s make a warrior tier that looks like Deathwing! Gnarled dragon horn and angular elementium plating with burning fire behind it were the key ingredients.

We build our player armor from a number of base templates, which means the concepts need to conform to predetermined shapes. However, shoulder pads and helmets are uniquely modeled for each set and that gives us great opportunities to create eye-catching silhouettes. In this instance, the sweeping horn shapes ensure a powerfully brutal-looking set for warriors.

Warrior Tiers 1-12

    its a good armor set but i notice similarities in things that blizz said they always made from scratch, i.e. the shoulders and helm, the shoulders are a copy of warlock t7 with the color scheme of warrior t11. the helm is a mix between warrior t11 and t1/t2 for the jaw with a hint of warlock t1 for the horns, like i said its a nice tier but far from original like they say

    Actually, it is. If you're discussing the lack of T3, T3 just got re-released, so technically they're all there.

    They didn't post T3 because it's basically the same as T7, because it was a re-release when they re-released Naxx for Wrath. If you still have your pieces from Naxx pre-Wrath, I'm sure you can still use them. Although I don't know if they removed those items in general, not many people were able to get them.

    Full Tier 6 warriors

    Is it just me or was tier 6 the best designed tier overall (all classes?)

    Looking through these retrospectives and tier 6 has made me go "ooooooooh I miss that awesome look" on every class so far. I mean, warrior T6 was awesome, so was druid. Warlock T5 is actually hotter than their T6 imo, but their T6 is still not bad (it's really good).


    OH, and warrior T9, (the blueish one for alliance, is it?) must be the fugliest one ever?!

    And also HAHA @ T2.5!

    Warriors have five other sets with horns, and you compare those horns to warlock t1? If anything, they look closer to t5 or t8. I see the similarity between these shoulders and warlock t7, but the size, shape, and style are completely different. Similarity does not equal them copying one set from the other, or you could just as easily say they copied the shoulders from shaman t2.5.

    LOL suprise suprise, Warriors have another decent looking tier

    Overall it is very nice, I am partial to T1, T8, T10, and T12. The fact that we look somewhat like Deathwing is very cool, if not that original. But there is one thing that I don't like about the past few teirs, and that is the gigantic belt. It doesnt't really fit nicely. The Jaw characteristics on the helm is very nice. I can't wait to see what this looks like on an Orc!
