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.

    Looks like Blizzard quit the theme-centralized sets. Elements and Fire didn't work out. And looking at the results of T13, I have to say it was a smart decision. I only hope they don't drop the ball when they get to the hunter set.

    No i don't because they weren't very detailed compared to now, they weren't very creative, had almost nothing to do with lore other than the fact that your character maybe sometimes had something to do with the general idea of the tier. The only really good set of the whole dam expansion of BC was tier 6 really, tier 5 was decent. Compared to the LAWL tiers of vanilla that had like good tier sets total.
    Tier 6 was great i'll give you that, but besides that tier 8, and tier 10 were both for the most part almost as good, the only "bad" sets of WOTLK were tier 7, a rehash of a pre WOTLK set which many people liked upon release, and tier 9 which was for the most part a joke.

    :S Idk what to think of it... first thing I thought was "Do the goggles come down?" Otherwise idk. The shoulders look kind of neat but don't suit what a mage is... this whole concept of a "techno-mage" (whatever that is) is pretty random in the WoW universe...

    I really like this tierset. This is a tier set I would use transmog to keep next expansion.

    It just doesn't fit mages.

    Wonder if those cogwheels on the shoulders move...that would be pretty cool.
