Why is the image of a Death Knight, or is there ICC drop gear that looks like that and I missed it?

Plate tank/dps gear from ICC heroic shares models with the Death Knight t10.

That is in fact my warrior in offspec DPS gear from ICC 25. All the heroic drops share models with DK set. Which is sad.

Turnabout is fair play, Rossi. Just like off-set Druid leather has historically make them look like Rogues, Paladins and Death Knights have often had to look like Warriors when not in tier gear (or, in the case of Tier 9, even when in tier gear).Payback is a bitch.But at least Tier 10 Death Knight looks nice. Feral Druids don't get that courtesy when wearing Discarded Bag of Entrails.

Not even plumping for 2-set?

@Rossi- Sad, yes, lazy, yes, but it makes sense lore wise.

@ DeathPaladinYou never see a Feral's gear anyway, so why should they care? They could look like Bozo the Clown (may he rest in peace) and they'd have no room to complain, what with being in cat/bear form all the time. Where as Warriors ALWAYS show the gear they are wearing. The fact that DPS Warriors have not (with the exception of ToC/GC) had a set that matched at all this expansion (DPS off set items have all used the DK model, while the Tank off set items have all been Warrior model). The fact that we (the DPS Warriors of the world) have been forced to use gear that doesn't match yet again (back in vanilla the sets were all Tank oriented, so our gear was a mishmash of whatever we could scrounge up) is a "Slap in the Face", especially when Rets, and now DKs, are stealing all our gear (and Legendaries) and masquerading as Warriors (though both fall very, very short of the mark).

The attempt to play up some kind of rivalry is cute, Natsumi, but I'm afraid it comes across as forced. Us plate wearers (and Fury Warriors) are too laid-back to make such arguments sound feasible.Warrior vs DK, Warrior vs Paladin, or DK vs Paladin just doesn't have the same level of bitter hatred/unresolved sexual tension that makes the Mage vs Warlock feud so compelling.

@ DeathPaladinForced? What are you talking about? I've been hating on Paladins since Molten Core, when some filthy buff-bot got an OEB when he couldn't DPS his way out of a wet tissue. Oh, and then there was that long period in BC when my guild took an undergeared Ret to Kara over me (when I was topping the DPS meters before he even hit 70) because he brought Kings to the raid. Or maybe the 3 guilds I was in in Wrath that were ruined by Holy Paladins that got uppity and left mid-raid because the raid leader wouldn't take their suggestions and the 1 guild that was ruined by some snitty Ret that didn't win a roll so he took his tank friend (our OT) and formed his own guild (which failed miserably) leaving us 1 tank short, which caused the other tank (also a Paladin) to puss out and /gquit while everyone was offline. The only Paladin that I actually like is/was Bolvar Fordragon, and we all know what happened to him. Every other Paladin can go suck a Murloc and DIAF.I never claimed my dislike (to put it mildly) for Paladins was amusing. My opinion of Paladins is probably very similar to your opinion of stepping in dog crap in your bare feet. Now, my dislike for mages stems from my many years of playing a Warlock, and I wholeheartedly embrace the concept of a rivalry like that, but Paladins were, are, and always will be worthless to me.
