So I recently came back to WoW and figured I'd finish up my shaman's CM set, which I love by the way and I got to noticing something I hadn't noticed before, nor had I heard anyone else suggest. Is the Shaman's CM set supposed to be modeled after Cairne?
Cairne was the previous Tauren Chief killed by Garrosh: http://www.wowwiki.com/Cairne_Bloodhoof
As you can see, they both have the totems on the shoulders, have a "feathery" tribal looking cap (though Cairnes is obviously much more dated) and otherwise relatively tribal and "open" armor, especially in the chest area. So was the CM shaman set supposed to be like a homage to him? Or is this just simply a "shamany" looking set and no connection?
If this should be obvious OR has no connection, feel free to say, maybe I just missed something, but it was something I noticed the other day.
