Anyone else getting a Space Marine vibe from the paladin set :X
Nope, it has something from a legionnaire because of the cape, I guess, but that's all.
Similar like people say T13 rogue = batman JUST because of the ears.
Just look at all the angel and demon references on the paladin armor, it's just awesome.
Breast plate front angel, back demon
The shoulders left angels, right demons
the same for the helmet...that's gotta be one of the most detailed sets of WoW so far, that is NOT for a main character.
I mean, if Wrynn wasnt such a douche he could wear this and it would fit to the other main character sets.
Oh and by the way:
Look on the polls for best Pala armor: Tier 2 clearly won...now compare it to this one...*lol*
Go and die Tier 2 !
Wow, thank god I play a paladin. It is the only set that feels inspired, fresh, like there was some real thought was put in it, not just spikes on spikes on spikes. I mean that is fantasy armor man, impossibly detailed with nice call backs to older sets. I am honestly GOBSMACKED, really, I think I can finally let go of that lightforge helm grudge.
The only other pieces that I can say the same about are the rogue helm and shaman shoulders. Apart from the mage and death knight set (which are good not mindblowingly great) the others look downright drab. Feels like they belong in some low tier WotLK dungeon on some vykrul. Also when will blizz get the memo that just putting spikes on things is NOT cool, especially if they face the same direction. It looks boring and honestly it's the last season of this xpac and your giving people just more spikes made out of bone ? and armor made out of wood? Be more creative PvP sets need to look more substantial.
(Side-note: doesn't it seem that the paladin PvE and PvP sets got swapped? They have been going on this bird motif on the PvP sets since the beginning of cata and now all of the sudden feathers and wings are on a simpler more plate-y PvE set and the more elaborate dragon wing, halo, 1-horned, cloth hooded set is the PvP set.)
edit: I MADE THIS ACCOUNT JUST TO COMMENT ON HOW AWESOME THE PALLY ARMOR IS!
Blizzard definitely made some changes in their art team. These sets look fantastic. That paladin set has to be one of the best sets I've seen in this game. Bravo, Blizzard. This patch looks like it will have the best art direction since Burning Crusade.
And... happened again... I believe Designers TRIED to make PvP set look worst than then PvE for this season/tier, but failed. Even with all this stitches and patches tied together the PvP still have a more exciting look than PvE for Hunters. Now, I HAVE to add.... Paladins all around will try to put their hands on every Conquest point that is possible for transmogrification purposes. Epic PvP armor.
Yay, DK's get the complete shaft in T13. Nice pro Paladin and Warrior itemization on that plate DPS gear and our PvP gear looks like absolute garbage, what is this Tier 2.5? At least the Rosary of Light trinket is actually freaking useful, unlike the terrible Firelands ones.
