Armor Sets - WoW Magazine
This set in my opinion was one of the best sets for Mages, back in the day, and it was sick looking as well. I loved getting the entire collection for my Mage with my guild back in the day, as it took a long time and dedication.
Raiding then was tougher to earn gear as well because there was 40 Man raiding then, instead of the now 10 and 25 man raids, that you can choose to join. Additionally, The bosses then were pretty epic and when you enchanted your gear, you looked even more awesome looking.
Not to say, the T11 gear, which was added in Cataclysm isn't any good looking. I do love that helm that turns your face into a burning mask pretty much. That is pretty cool as well. =)
I had been spending all of my time a couple days devoted to killing all the npcs around Faldir’s Cove. I would just go around and around in a circle, from the npcs on the ground, to the boat, back to the ground, and occasionally when the other npcs by the campfire spawned I would go after them.
I couldn’t attack Booty Bay because I was just 1 rogue vs the buffed guards that would quickly spawn and kill me easily if I tried killing the vendors. So, I searched for a little bit and found out about the npcs by Faldir’s Cove that would still give me Bloodsail Buccaneer reputation. So, I then decided to go there and grind rep till I was high enough to get the quest Avast ye, Scalleywag at friendly from Pretty Boy Duncan to go to Fleet Master Firallon and get Avast Ye, Admiral.
When I was able to get the quests, since I was now hated with the goblins at Booty Bay and would be killed on sight, I remembered I was lucky that I was a rogue so I could easily stealth to Baron Revilgaz. I flew on top of the inn, stealthed, dropped behind him, easily killed him with Ambush, died from the guards that attacked me, and then eventually flew back to Fleet Master Firallon to turn in Avast Ye, Admiral where I got my title, hat, and uniform.
I practically lol’d when I got it all and didn’t have to kill any more npcs, I always think of this when I put on that uniform and hat. I love the parrot too. I still hang onto that uniform and hat just cause I love it and can’t get myself to get rid of it. Even if I might not where it, I still won’t get rid of it. It looks cool on my rogue (Silentbandit).
What's your favorite armor set or tier of all time, and why? Tell us, how did you earn the set; does it have sentimental value; why do you love it; and have you held onto it after it's no longer useful?
If chosen your name and text could appear in a future issue of the Official World of Warcraft Magazine.
I believe perhaps the most byzantine yet majestic of the tier sets would be the Ten Storms set, worn by Shaman. By traditional definition, a Shaman is a walker between worlds; one with cosmic consciousness, linking together the planes of earth and spirit; a clairvoyant medicine man who uses natural tribal remedies, herbal antitodes, and resplendent ritualistic nature-based ceremonies to develop and comemmorate the primal link between life and the elements that reinforce it. To me, the aptly named Ten Storms, fancied in metallic adornment and titanium wolves with blazed lightning, represents the unrivaled, unsurpassed aptitude of the elements and of the power of life and living spirit.
From a lore perspective I feel that the Shaman is the iconic visionary and the most perplexingly misunderstood of the Warcraft classes, and that more than any other, Ten Storms best reflects their rightly obscured but abysmally deep finesse.
i was raiding with knights of the void when i got my hands on the helm after we downed kel thuzed i collected the rest of the set shortly after i thought of somthing cool while siting in dal i said to myself ima kill the LK with this helm the next day my comps mother board failed so i sent it to get repairs 6 months later i get it back from best buy because they suck ass at keeping on time i nearly forgot how to play wow so i had to relearn everything by then my guild barly existed they had all either quit wow or left the guild so somtime after wards around the time of the catalysm i finaly down the lk after going thru several guilds i took a screen shot the next day i went to retrieve it and my hard drive died so i gave it to a friend to repair he postponed the repair for 3 months and my hard drive was un fixable so i lost my screen shot
i guess expect the worse to be cautious and MAKE LOTS OF COPYS!!!!
Anyhow, rambling over TIER SETS!
Tier 1 Prophecy set for HOLY priests, that somehow looks fantastic with the Golden Staff off of KJ. Tier 6 for shadow priests (but in truth, they all look the same as a shadowy blob when in shadowform), but it looks great with Anathema.
Tier 2 Bloodfang for rogues.
I have set to see a better paladin set than Tier 2 Judgement.
Grand Marshal set for mages.
I don't have much feeling for the rest.
