Mage - Timelord Regalia


It’s fun to put a spin on any caster class that moves it away from the usual wizardly archetype, and this set provided the perfect opportunity to do just that. Gnomish clockwork technology is an established part of the Warcraft universe, but it’s not something we’ve incorporated into a tier of player armor before. The combination of moving cogs, quilted fabric, and lots of buckled straps give the set an intriguing "techno-mage" flavor.

    I must say that this set of Tier is absolutely horrid. Somebody tell me how goggles and some cogwheel shoulders reflect what a mage is/stands for. This set of tier screams Gnome mages. If thats what you were going for Blizz then you hit the nail on the head. Blizz calls this Timelord... Ok, i can see the sense in that (Time Warp) This doesnt at all reflect the feel of Time Warp though. I can deal with the color scheme thats fine but the over all concept of this set just doesnt make sense to me at all. I would love for the mages out there to come together and petition this terrible set. Blizz must reconsider the design. Any other mages with me??

    32 pages of comments and yet nearly %89 of them are whining/wtfisthis blizz posts.Since I cant paste links here because of minimum posts to be sent, please check Techno Mages on wowwiki. Probably this'll be helpful for ye and btw, how hard you state that you didnt like the tier set or didnt find it fit to a mage, this will be the mage tier 13, and wont change. wowwiki/Techno_mage

    this looks much more like what the Ulduar teir gear should have looked like. Its of a titan's flare in the colouring and the goggles and the gears.

    Tier 6 is probably the best looking out there.

    God, Blizz is really losing the magic on the Tier sets.

    Looks garbage in my opinion... probably reforging back to my H T11.

    I'm glad other mages are liking it. Remember, Blizzard said it's impossible to make EVERYONE happy with a tier set, (Except Mage T11, of course.) So this isn't a total waste. It honestly seems like more people like it than not, even if I'm against it . And that's what's gonna make Transmog a huge hit. All the people who don't like it, can switch to something else.

    I really like the new look. It does say "techno-mage".

    I still like tier 5 the most. Tirisfal Regalia will always be top in my mind (although T11 is pretty mean, too). XD

    Good memories surrounding some of the earlier tiers.

    Very cool, but that quilted padding is really distracting.

    I'm sure this went over a lot of heads, but I loved it. Bravo sir.
