    Arthas Frost Wyrm armor, HOTS

    Did anyone see the spotlight for Arthas' Frost Wyrm armor in Heroes of the Storm?

    Is it just me or would that make a perfect tier set for DKs? Wings on the back and everything. I think it would be massively cool.

    Its really awesome.

    But I doubt there will be any raid tier that will theme this set well in WOD.

    Yet, it could be a really awesome CM GOLD gear reward.

    I can't see it ever being a raid tier set, they usually try and follow the expansion/tier theme when designing sets.

    I'd imagine the design process behind Death Knight sets goes a bit like this:

    1. What is the current expansion/tier theme? Primal & barbaric; okay draw up a basic plate set and add vines, bones and things which make it match the theme.
    2. How can we make it relevant to DK's? Add skulls across the armor and a neat icy effect to the shoulders. Nice we're getting somewhere.
    3. How can we make it traditional? LET'S MAKE THE HELMET LOOK AS STUPID AS FUCK! First let's put a horn on the top of the helmet pointing directly upwards! Yeah, that should give the people that use 'dickhead' jokes a lot some material to work with. Next we'll add horns to side, not cool looking ones that point upwards, too much, how about we make them point downwards, brilliant!! And finally we'll add strips of metal that point downwards over the mouth so that it faintly resembles tentacles/dribbling.

    And it's done! Ta da!

    Very true. As Nezia said though, it would make a kickass CM set!

    They'd have to make sure the helmet looks dumb as fuck though!

    Also make sure the shoulder armor is about 10x the size it needs to be ,particularly for male Orcs and male Draenei.

    Most importantly, make sure the shoulders are asymmetrical. Put some giant, intrusive projection out of one side, and make the other side a different color.

    Dont forget the helmet needs to be ½ the size of the entire body on gnomes.

    Thanks Anzen. Agree it mostly looks cool, and it's already got a crap helmet.

    asymmetrical shoulders and giant belt buckles
    the bane of this expansion

    Way ahead of you, sir. I've been drooling over this set for months.

    Looks like a mix of the sets we got from Icecrown Citadel and Dragon Soul.

    Well that's stupid cool. I hope we get something like that for the new CM set/weapon.

    I'd prefer my orcs to stand up straight.
