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.

Mage Tiers 1-12

    "sexy quilted cusion fabric" makes it look like you're wearing a mattress. Flipped up goggles on the head is retarded. It's just like what they did with pally t10 with the helmet visor up. It makes no sense, and it looks dumb. The unusual glove model? It's been done before. See warlock gloves t10.

    Is it me or do the MAge shoulders and Helm look very engineer looking. The shoulders have cogs and the Helm looks like he is going cave diving

    OT: I like it honestly. Not the best looking mage set, but nice nonetheless.
    T7 was T3 just different colors. Makes it an absolute dud automatically. Ever seen "Grandma's Boy"?

    Mage T5, T10.5, and T11.5 were all good.

    Yeah...and how the Tier gear and PvP gear looked nothing alike. (insert sarcasm here)

    Blizz, Blizz, Blizz...I know you've got MacGyver locked up in your design team headquarters, but why on earth did you give him a mattress and some spare parts from a steam-powered machine to get inspiration?

    I don't agree with the design myself, but the color scheme is done rather well. Either way, you've gotta admit it'll look good on gnome mages if nothing else.

    This is soooooooooo bad. What the hell was Blizzard thinking? I'm worried about the sets we've yet to see. Priest tier better be good!!

    Blizzard was thinking they liked the design of the set.

    Also, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Actually looks kinda cool IMO, much more unique than previous tiers.

    no, no...not unique at all.

    Unique is Tier 8. Blizz failed again.

    This is unique. No other tier looks even remotely like this.

    so did that undead in the sunstrider gear just sorta stumble into the wrong party, or did he photobomb the armor lineup?

    When was the last time you saw Alliance wearing the Horde tier?

    Timelord Regalia looks amazing! One of the best sets of any class armor. Very steampunk.
