Mage - Timelord Regalia

It’s fun to put a spin on any caster class that moves it away from the usual wizardly archetype, and this set provided the perfect opportunity to do just that. Gnomish clockwork technology is an established part of the Warcraft universe, but it’s not something we’ve incorporated into a tier of player armor before. The combination of moving cogs, quilted fabric, and lots of buckled straps give the set an intriguing "techno-mage" flavor.

    Is anyone else reminded of Number 5 from Short Circuit when you see the goggles?

    Transmogrification is coming right in time.

    Wow, the T13 sets just keep getting worse and worse. The only one that looks decent is the warrior, and not even that one has the awesome-factor that the old sets had. I guess there's a reason they're introducing transmogrifying in 4.3...

    i have a feeling blizz doesnt care about how gear is gonna look like in the future. Thats the reason they brought up transmogrify. If you dont like it mog it, that should be their slogan.

    Mage sets on the whole are probably the ugliest sets out there, even more so than the hunter and rogue.

    For real though, i feel like people just want to hate on anything, as far as this tier goes so far i feel like it's the most creative they've ever had and we've only seen half of it, not necessarily the best looking so far but i'm definitely liking it more than most tiers. I feel like those who are like ZOMG worst tier ever are those people who are already hating the game and just letting the whole world know that nothing will make them happy.

    They should of really modeled this on a gnome mage. Would look awesome on them. A bit on the fence about this set. It has so many ways to fail big time. But if they managed to pull it off it would be one of the more unique sets. As always i will wait til I see it in-game.

    Looks like the season 10 elite paladin set!! Blizzard keeps doing ugly gear since wotlk! Remember how BC gear was so different from each class?

    at first, it seemed to me like the lvl80 pvp set. then I swapped to fullscreen and.. couldn't do anything but laugh. it would probabily look great on a goblin or a gnome, though.

    not bad i like the theme, but my fav of all times it's the t11 and t8 (but i dislike the pants, i'm used to robes).
