Topic (Sticky) Complete Paladin Transmogrifier Gear Guide
ive looked and looked but seeing as most tanking weapons now are maces in the upcoming patch (so far) im trying to find a 1h mace that matches the t6 and cant find anything to my liking. any suggestions? (wish it were swords instead bleh)
This is my soon to be set, I my not be able to get the helm I wanted for it but I have a nice fall back incase.
This is my Lionheart set. http://www.wowhead.com/compare?items=18876:16476:24458:16859:16860:64902:45574:16475:16473:14969;12584:18825;48708:18825
However, I might have to replace Glorious headdress/warleaders crown with Overlords Crown since the those 2 helms don't like me doesn't want to drop for me.
Asking a silly question but how do you display an item on your posts like Godgiven did with Inevitable Defeat?
How is this still not a sticky? Paladins are one of the most "themed" classes, this guide will be invaluable in the coming months...
I know right, it took me a while to find this thread again because i had to try to remember the name of it.
Sticky and Bump for Epicness
If you click the little grey down arrow at the top of the group of items and then select view in 3d it will show it.

After seeing the 378 version of Ward of the Red Widow, i had to put this together.
That set looks nice, but those shoulder's don't really match with it, I'd get the Crusader's Scaled Shoulders of that Crusader set if possible.
I did some work on one of those unfinished sets.
Gauntlets of the Righteous goes a lot better with that set than the Banshee gloves. And that helm looks too dark to match with that set, I'd use Helm of Purified Thoughts or Helm of the Righteous (Or you should just hide it). Otherwise it looks good as well.

After spending a few hours building it, here is my finished set.
Paladin / Warrior set
Basically a black, gold, and silvery armor set where most of the items needed can be obtained from either quests, pvp vendors, and old world dungeons. And the tabard is gotten with exalted Shattered Sun (Isle of Quel'denus) rep. The Argent Crusade (the Tourney grounds version) is a nice alternative if you're not too keen on rep grinding (AC rep is much quicker to cap than SSO rep).
The first items listed is the set in the above 3D model link. The following items are alternatives in case you might not have access to the first certain item, but you will likely have to improvise the rest of the if you do.
The Defiler's Plate Girdle and the Defiler's Plate Greaves are both from the HORDE Arathi Basin pvp vendor, if you are Alliance there is a link to your faction's version in the top left corner of the two items I linked. I picked the lowest levels version because naturally, they are the cheapest. The version that both a Paladins or Warriors interested can equip it was listed for player convience.
The chest isn't that important since your tabard will be covering it. But the Battlemaster suits it best.
The helm requires 260JP and is bought from G'eras in Shatt. I do not recommend getting this if you are a Tauren.
The Stonegrip Gauntlets clearly fits in better than the Banshee's Touch, but it is a rare BoE drop and thus not guaranteed to be available to you, therefore it is listed last.
The shield is there if people are interested in a matching piece, but I'm pretty stumped as to a suitable weapon. . .
Taurajo Butcher's Blade is a Horde only quest reward, but Hanzo Sword is BoE. But honestly, I wouldn't worry about a matching weapon because there are several types of weapons a pally can use, and it would thus take far too long to find a matching weapon for each type. I will likely just leave it un-mogged. I find that Taurajo Butcher's Blade looks neat with my set . . .
* The cape is from a Horde quest chain, but there is a Alliance equivalent available with the same name and texture in that zone. There is also the Cloak of the Craft, which is BoE.
I hope you all enjoy!
Pretty nice set there, Soledo. Looks like it will blend well with Pandaria, since it's slightly Asian in feel, black/grey/white, and with a draconic shield. I'm building a Ret. set based around Black Naxx armor and Lightbringer shoulders. I dubbed it "Light's Vengeance". Behold!
Helmet: Broken Ram Skull Helm
Shoulders: Lightbringer Pauldrons
Cloak: Recovered Scarlet Onslaught Cape
Chest: Heroes' Redemption Tunic
Gloves: Heroes' Redemption Gloves
Waist: Titan-Forged Girdle of Triumph
Legs: Heroes' Redemption Greaves
Boots: Spiked Deathdealers
2h: Ashkandi, Greatsword of the Brotherhood

Ideas and comments welcome. Thanks!

Soledo, regarding the set I finished
I think using the Gauntlets of the Righteous over Banshee's Touch is more a matter of personal preference.
I was also going with the idea of using a cowl-like headpiece in that set, not your usual plate helmet. That's why I went with Savage Gladiator's Scaled Helm. If there's another item that would match the rest of the set better that still looks like a cowl, then I'd gladly use that instead.
Your set looks fantastic, except for the shoulders used. I don't typically associate that glaringly layered pauldron look with paladins.
Tax, my suggestion was mostly based on how well the colors mesh with each other and nothing else, don't let that stop you from using the items you want.
The shoulders of my own set were chosen because it the whole point of this set is for to look fairly simple in design yet still be a bit "distinct", this is all done because I have a serious problem with how Blizzard keeps making increasingly flamboyant armor sets with each new tier.
I also didn't really intend it to be a pally exclusive set since Sunwalkers are only paladins in name only, so an actual paladin set or any of its lookalikes wouldn't really suit a Tauren (they look really awkward on them too). Because of that, I based the set with items you can quest for.
Fashion bump once again to keep this at least near the first page...
So I'm working on putting together a set that says "Sunwalker," this is rather difficult, because there aren't many examples of Sunwalkers yet in the game and the ones that exist are mostly wearing either grey gear or are simply wearing paladin tier gear.
I've settled on Tier 8 (Conqueror's Aegis, the red and blue set) as the base, since the color scheme and the orange-gold orbs in the armor bear a marked resemblance to our Epic Sunwalker kodo. However, I'm still looking for a suitable cloak, I don't really need bracers or boots as they wouldn't even be visible under the kilt/gloves, and I'm looking around to see if there are any other suitable helms as the T8 helm is a little wonky on a Tauren snout...
any suggestions would be appreciated.

This set from Sunwell looks pretty cool http://www.wowmogging.com/plate/sets/goldsun/
And this one from Cataclysm dungeons isn't bad either http://www.wowmogging.com/plate/sets/catagold/
