    [QUOTE=Gloriandus;51083213]Nazjatar raid sets. Mythic > Heroic > Normal > LFR. LFR color might go well with that rust/purple PvP Ashbringer skin.

    Unfortunately, the raid sets employ that awful old WoW "calf clamp and shoe" boot style with a 3D doodad on the front. Plus, I'm never a fan of "exposed neck" on plate armor.


    Gladiator Sets: Alliance > Horde




    Why do they display new gear on the worst character model in the game? male Humans. Ugh. They look so fat and bloated with huge Popeye forearms, and look like sick out of shape fat fucks. Gear looks horrible on them.

    I still think models like a female Night Elf wear Plate gear very well, and look bad ass, as does the make Blood Elf.

    That looks incredible.. bad. And PvP and PvE set is the same this time around? What the fuck are they doing? They scrapped class tier sets so they could work more on the armour we get, and they produce literal garbage.

    Another thing that REALLY bothers me with this new model of designing, why the FUCK do they have the same model for LFR, Normal and HC? Blizzard is just getting lazier and lazier for every damn expansion we get, and they refuse to listen to their playerbase and wonder why people are leaving this shit? Worst part - I fucking love WoW, and have played it since Vanilla, collected almost every plate set in the game (as I only play plate classes), and love tmog. Seeing the creators just taking a massive dump on us and the game just upsets me so much man.

    The sets aren't terrible, though they're nothing tow rite home about.

    Might be mistaken, but was part of the reason they got rid of Tier sets was to preserve class fantasy (like a paladin not looking like a Death Knight)? If that's the case, why does everyone look like everyone else, then?

    Not to "preserve" class fantasy, but to keep themselves from having to brainstorm too hard.

    • The team is adding art variety to the world in this expansion. There will be more options than ever before, rather than a 22nd take on the Priest fantasy.
    • What would an Old God themed Paladin set even look like?

    Recently got the T19 mythic helm, and wanted to put it to good use. This it in practice...


    But I was having issues with the hood being purple. And then I realized it can be separate. So it's just the hood of a cloak. Like so.


    Item list:
    Helmet of the Highlord (Mythic)
    Dory's Embrace (cloak)
    Pauldrons of Winged Triumph (Normal)
    Breastplate of the Silver Hand
    Stormpike Battle Tabard
    Gauntlets of the Silver Hand
    Girdle of the Silver Hand
    White Tiger Legplates
    Sabatons of the Silver Hand
    Ashbringer - Shattered Reckoning, tint 2

    I find it so fun with the "adding art variety to the world", what does that even mean? More unique bushes? Some fancy buildings?

    They did it to cut down on manhours needed to design each tier, it's just money. It's a reason most people I see wandering around are using older tier sets now, the only ones using the current tiers are people with Elite or Mythic, and that is mostly to show off I believe.

    Thank god for transmog.

    VERY interested in this BfA Season 3 two-hander. It's like a katana and scimitar. A katanitar, or a scimitana. Color schemes are terrible, as always, though.

    You are not your role. You are not how much gold you have on your account.
    You are not the mount you ride. You are not the contents of your bank.
    You are not your epic purples. You are not a special and unique snowflake.
    You are the all-grinding, all-farming crap of Azeroth.

    So, not too much ingenuity here.. but this is my new set for my paladin. Using the Darkshore WF items, with the Argusian Reach tabard. It also looks good with the Champions of Azeroth tabard if you want to pull out the blue gems more.

    Blademasters are monks, not warriors. Their weapon is classed as a polearm. And there is literally nothing Orcish about that sword.
    OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."

    And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"

    I know you are. Not sure why you're laughing, though. Nervous?

    Blademasters are monks? What have you been smoking? Did you ever play any of the Warcraft games?

    They are warriors from the Burning Blade clan, and used swords, polearms and axes (aka everything with a blade on it).

    Went back to this recently, as it's one of the "most paladin-y" sets/colorations they've ever made. Odd thing is that some of the pink parts (e.g., the chest crystal) look weird in non-neutral light.

    There aren't any weapons I really like with it, though, so I went with the "Purely Paladin Pounder" mace. The Plundered Firegeode Mace would be great if it came in a recolor with pink crystals and was bigger than a one-hander.



    Item List
    Armor Set: Tier 17 (N)
    Head: Beholder's Eye
    Cloak: Lord's Cape

    Weapon: Gilded Warhammer
    Illusion: Netherflame

    And in WoW they wear leather and sometimes blindfolds and meditate on mountaintops and telegraph their attacks with animu call-outs. The Horde and Draenei both had Warriors and Blademasters and they were separate things.
