    Paladin Tier 17?

    Some of the new icons on the front page feature some icons that show what look like paladin armor, then seemingly confirmed when I noticed the icon names.

    check these out. Do you think they're previews of the next tier? They're very draenei centric.

    It'll be the armor the Dreanei paladin were using in the BC cinematic looks like, a polished version

    There is already discussion about this exact topic in the WoD ret megathread, not sure a 2nd thread is really needed

    He/she means 5+ tier set bonuses, probably. Or just that belt/boots count towards the two 2/4 set bonuses.

    Considering that the Ret thread is quite long, and that this isnt exactly a ret only thing, it seems pretty fine that this has its own thread.

    OT: I'd love for big tier sets to come back. With how gear switches on your spec, I feel like gearing up outside of tier either won't take long or will take forever depending on group size and composition.

    This looks like a revised/updated Paladin T4.

    Not that i'm complaining by any means.

    Yeah, looks like they crammed T4 and T5 together. I like it, thus far. Who knows what shinies are on it.

    I think that's just there because it's the pally tier match. I really can't imagine blizz going back to 8 piece sets.

    I really wish they would. Not even 8 piece; they can leave out the ring slot. I'd like all visible armour pieces (save perhaps for cloaks) to be incorporated into tier sets again however.

    While I agree I think they should do that and STILL offer other non raid tier pieces incase tier doesn't drop but I doubt they'll go back. If they don't, WHAT THEY SHOULD DO is make the (Boots Belt and such) actually drop more. Matching pieces ftw.

    considering Justicar is my favourite set, and my current paladin is rocking full t4.

    I gladly welcome an updated version of the set in high poly.

    I'd be happy with that compromise. The worst thing is when they make sets that don't in fact have any matching belts/boots (a few of the T6 sets spring to mind, as well as several others). Thankfully to my knowledge, they haven't done that for quite some time however.

    The only thing I didn't particularly like about Justicar was the whacky circlet (other than the perennial problem of metal bikinis), and I always loved how the set looked like a big, bulky set of plate armor. It basically looked exactly like what a Paladin should. I'd love for them to go back to that aesthetic.

    I actually think a return (with slight modification) to the old T4 sets would be an awesome way to welcome us back to Outland/Draenor in general.

    I really wanted a rugged theme for our next tier. Draenei-themed from BC was my least favorite of the paladin tiers.

    Yeah. Like beefed up Tier 4.

    I'd love to see belts, boots, and wrists come back into the game. With items switching with specs, there would probably be fewer offset items, thus fewer chances for transmogs for the full set. At the moment, Healing plate uses the Paladin tier model, but with healing plate going away for just plate, getting a warrior, Death Knight and paladin look a like for each class to get full transmog may be too much bloat on the new loot table designs.

    Also, love that it looks like an updated t4. Loved that set, Its just too... outdated. Maybe new Hammer of the Naaru?

    Also, is it me or does the chest look like it extends to have 2 side guards over the legs, and the belt has 1 going under it? Maybe a new type of skirt look without having the full robe?

    Looks pretty good, silver and gold and shiny Draenei purple.
