    Paladin tier set name datamined.

    Apparently, the T16 paladin gear will be called "Winged Triumph".

    like? Dislike? indifferent?
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    I'm not sure anyone even pays attention to item names anymore.

    I love the name, personally.

    It's very Paladinesque as well as fitting for the set.

    I do hope in the next expansion with new models, that they give us a new set of Wings (updated model) which more closely resembles that of Tyrael.

    pah... not imaginative, so to say.
    It's not like it's so hard to come up with a good, actually paladin-y name, the likes of Judgement, Lightbringer.

    "the Armor of Unyelding Faith"
    Sure as sure

    Sounds like a title I'd give a mog set, so it's a fair name. Just think it could have been better. Going to look up other T16 names to see how it compares.

    For me it could be named "battlegear of orgrimmar pwner" (tbh I would like it), "pally t16 dress" or even "armor of baked potato". Doesnt rly matter. There were no "paladin" set names since T6 anyway.
    And about its look... I like red version. Like every fiery set in game (pyromaniacs inc.). Might use it over good old immolation set.

    // Tyrael? If they would like to import such unique model for a player, it would be better to merge WoW with D2. World of Diablo seems legit.

    Kinda disturbing how true this actually is, I can name every tier set prior to six bar maybe one exception; on the other hand I've been clearing 13/13 for the past like 12 weeks and gotten maybe 8 tier pieces including offspec and I honestly have no idea what the set is called or even the number of it.

    problem goes not only with the name, its the tiers, actually.
    After T6, no tier ever did say "Paladin", the closest to being "paladin" set was S11 imo.
    Sure as sure

    Are you talking here about the PvP set of Season 11 or PvE set of Tier 11 ??

    I think there should be a paladin tier with Crusader or Templar in the name, most of the names for our tier don't even kinda make sense for the class. Now I need to check armory for paladins named taric, one of them had better be wearing T5.

    Seems fitting imho. I relish the days when the name were inspired after something regarding justice or law but I guess has to keep evolving one way or the other, names included.

    PVE sets are called Tiers and go by the first letter, as in - T2 stands for Tier 2 Judgement set.
    PVP sets are calles Seasons and go by the first letter, as in - S11 stans for Arena Season 11 gear.
    Sure as sure
