Warrior – Colossal Dragonplate

A simple concept: Let’s make a warrior tier that looks like Deathwing! Gnarled dragon horn and angular elementium plating with burning fire behind it were the key ingredients.

We build our player armor from a number of base templates, which means the concepts need to conform to predetermined shapes. However, shoulder pads and helmets are uniquely modeled for each set and that gives us great opportunities to create eye-catching silhouettes. In this instance, the sweeping horn shapes ensure a powerfully brutal-looking set for warriors.

    Can't say i'm a fan of it ... Looking forward to Off set pieces for shoulders and Head but the rest of it looks odd to me This is my opinion, and i'm entitled to it!

    T13 has nothing similar to T12 besides the belt shape which is like 5% of the set... Looking at the wrong place?

    That Warrior tier 13 really is awesome overall, but the actual texture work/detail is a total hack-job. It doesn't even look much like armor; it looks really flat and devoid of definition, and they seriously overdid the cracks of magma.

    Tier 3 was the sexiest of all tiers. and it's not even there. great.

    T3 will be available via Dark Moon.
    Also T3 / T7 are completely different, at least for the priest. T7 is horrible due to the way they changed teh chest piece.

    Seems like they just copied most of deathwings armor, but that's not a bad thing.

    i must say warrior tier sets have overall been very good T2 shoulers are kinda WTF but they are so old they have gotten the nostaliga stamp on them otherwise T11 is the weakest in my eyes the shoulders never really seemed to fit the warrior

    Isn't it the other way around: some of the Warr Tier 9/10 pvp is simply old Tier artwork ?
