Zarhym, thanks for posting a reply - it's very apprecaited.

A friend of mine and I wondered if maybe the dk armor had to be redone since it was taking so much longer than the rest.

I'm definitely hoping it's much nicer than T12 which was to me an eyesore (color wise).

So long as it is from the same people that designed Paladin Season 11, I'll be happy!

So, there are times where multiple iterations of how a set will look in the game are made, based on the original concept piece. In this case though, we felt there to be such a gap in quality that we went back to the drawing board and came up with an entirely new piece of concept art, scrapping the original concept and in-game art done for death knights.



Any chance when the T13 preview is released we can also see the original concept art and maybe even the 3d models based on that art? I'm super curious what it looked like.

I must be the only paladin not eager to equip that set.
Don't get me wrong, objectively, I hold a great appreciation for it.

It just doesn't appeal to my personal tastes.

I really hope so, I am quite curious as to how intricate it must have been for them not to be able to reproduce it properly.

I would also love to see the concept art for all the previous tiers of all the classes if possible. I'm sure a lot of others would as well. Concept art is usually some of the coolest looking stuff out there.

Don't see why you care so much. If it's like half the other tier 13 sets, you'll just transmog it anyway.

okay then, just for you the next death knight set will be purple and pink and will have a proc to shoot gusts of glitter at it's target. The helm will be a unicorn horn and it's shoulders will have pegasus wings....

...god talk about a real blood elven set huh?


I'm sorry i didn't know having a skull on your armor automatically made you sinister looking, I guess I'll try and remember that the next time i transmog my DK into his starter blues which imo was the best looking set. (void of skulls of course and the only one so if you would note)

Taken straight from the quest dialogue

"Kneel, champion. I place this helm upon your head to complete your terrifying visage. Any that dare look upon your dark countenance will know that death comes. Let none stand so boldly against your king so as to face your merciless wrath,..." <--- Greathelm of the Scourge Champion

Did it need skulls? absolutely not! would it have been any different if the shoulders were a little more streamlined? not at all! Does it matter that the spikes are only a slight accent? HELL NO!

When that was translated to the actual in-game look, we felt it wasn't up to par with the concept, and ultimately wasn't nearly at the quality level of the other tier 13 sets. But, that death knight set was completed weeks ago.


It was made into the PvP set wasn't it?

is it a possibility even though it was scrapped that the other original DK set could be seen?
