still working on making a set based around
Disclaimer: I apologize that you have to look the items up on wowhead yourself, MMO-Champ won't even let me post text urls without a trustworthy post count.
So, I'm a big fan of the 10 man version of tier 8. Love the look, love the style, love the color. Unfortunately, I can't have my cake and eat it too of course - I had no idea what to do for belts, boots, weapon, and shield. So I popped open the model viewer and decided to just brute-force my way through it. If you share my sense of aesthetics and plan on using 10 man t8 as your transmogrification solution, hopefully my efforts will ease your search.
If, like me, you want it to look as though there's no belt at all, well you're out of luck. Hordies get a bit of choice, but our waists are not getting out of this one unscathed.
This is the belt hordies can get, and it's kind of a gamble. If you don't look very hard (and who does, unless they're the championship belts we've been getting recently), it almost seamlessly blends in with the set and looks almost as though there's no belt at all. If you do look closely, though, you see like, scales or feathers or something in the front and back, and some misalignments on the sides. Worth it, in my opinion. But I'm alliance. *pout*
Relentless Gladiator's Girdle of Salvation
Everyone else just gets this next belt. It's not terrible, really, but it's not better than nothing. I think it fits the color scheme and "feel" of the set much more than any of the other belts (and I mean any, I scrolled through every plate belt in the model viewer).
Waistguard of New Days
As for boots, well it seems as though the ones in that tier 8 preview don't exist! At least not in my model viewer =(. If anyone knows which boots they are and how to get them, please let me know! Otherwise, your best bet in my opinion are these:
Sabatons of Rapid Recovery
Bracers are a non-issue, cloaks are whatever and I like showing off my gorgeous hair. As a healer I'll likely be sportin' a mace and shield, and though they don't have to have a similar look to the armor, I'd rather they did, so I tried to find something that would fit.
There were only two maces and really just one shield that did the trick for me.
War Mace of Unrequited Love
Mace of Acrid Death
Bulwark of Algalon
And that all ends up looking like, well, I'ma have to bypass that stupid link thing for what it looks like all together, cause I spent some time on it, I'm trying to help people out, and I want people to see what it looks like. I hope you guys will afford me a bit of leeway.
You start with the "http" thing and its punctuation.
Then there's an "i" and a dot.
Having answered the call, we now find the "imgur" and another dot.
Out of nowhere comes it crescendos with a "com" and a slash.
It climaxes at the tried and true "3SeMQ" with a dot.
And it all resolves at a ".png"
Gonna rock druid t4 for my pve gear, and t6 for my pvp gear. ;p
I like to heal!
That was juss the Pally set I threw together an what I will most likely be sporting. Might tinker around with some more when I get home.
WoW only has 10 million subscribers it must be dying! WoW sucks!
I'm sorry no, clearly you didn't see Chuck Norris allowed 10 million to survive his Purge.
I'm a fan of Wrathful too... (yes, I still have the Doomsday Messager plank on)
But I might try a plate bikini
I'm just going to put on random low level greens until it's a clusterfuck of old colors and textures.
Basically I'm going to look like an asshole
Gonna roll with this set seeing as I already have everything but the shield. http://www.wowhead.com/compare?items...58:19362:32082
Alright so i don't really play anymore and i will likely never come back. But dam these sets make me want to come back
The 2nd one while slightly impossible, is so epic it's not even funny, everyone should change the model to a tauren too and look how ridiculously big those hammers are.

Gah, psoted in the wrong thread at first.
After some looking around at wowhead, I finally found something I like. It's a mix between the tier 2 (Outland version) and the Revenant set.
Oh, and Dark Edge of Insanity.
I will probably go without the helm - But I will usea different hairstyle.
(If I come back, that is! :])
This is mine. I'm still unsure about the sword/weapon. Looking for something gold to match the set. Also, ignore the belt, it's a blue version of the old non-set T6 belt from Bloodboil.
Any suggestions for a different weapon, and possibly a different helm that matches the set? I'm not keen on the T6 Crown model, but something blue and gold to match the rest would be awesome. Preferably drops from older, soloable content, and available to Horde
