Yeah my belf paladin can't even wear the "Blood Knight" set because it is all mail and max level paladins really can only wear plate. So the class and race for which the gear is made can't even wear it due to restrictions. It's a bit reduculous.

This.I had my entire Blood Knight set ready to go, my Paladin leveled to where he could use it and set him in The Drag to wait for 4.3 to drop.Then I found out I can't transmog the PVP set because my Blood Elf paladin isn't a Champion from the Vanilla PVP grind.In addition, I discovered that Blizzard, in their infinite wisdom, did not place a cap on the cost of Transmogrification.So the guild-purchased Heirloom head and cape cost over 300g each to transmog.Between those two discoveries, mogging pretty much lost all of the luster it had when it was announced.

I was also quite frustrated with my belf paladin's blood knight set for the above reasons. It's really annoying because those pvp sets were put in the game after the old honor system was long gone. They were never intended to be flashy pvp rewards but rather some plain old post-old-honor-system pvp gear and an easy way for people to get their hands on a really nice dark black and red blood knight set.

same for me and my scarlet chain set. My warrior wore it until around level 45ish (back in the day before armor specialization). Complete set. But its mail and warrior's wear plate now grrr.Also, the mainhand/offhand thing has me buggin. Most tank weapons are strangely marked as "one handed" but some of the coolest weapons are labeled as "main hand" so it won't let me use the look. sad indeed.Also, just so everyone knows. There is a plate eyepatch that is BOE that drops off the rare in Shadowmoon Valley. Sells very well.

This. I was so happy that I had saved that shield quest reward that has the Blood Knight emblem on it from Shadowmoon Valley. I spent Justice Points on the old lvl 70 Blood Knight cloak, and even did a few battlegrounds to earn the honor to buy these pieces. (Which, if you were at all aware of how hard my PvPer guildmates have been trying to entice me into bgs with them, you'd know is an AMAZING feat...) Only for patch day to come and my work be for naught? So much for playing dress-up with the ONLY character I actually had a specific look in-mind for. I think what really pisses me off about the whole thing is that not only was this not announced beforehand, but the lvl 60 PvP gear is the ONLY group of sets that are technically transmogrifiable, but are arbitrarily limited to a finite set of the playerbase. I can only hope Blizzard retracts this stupidity, or at the very LEAST makes the a Blood Knight set available some other way. (And if they go that route, they sure as hell better let me trade in the PvP set for the transmoggable set. Jerks.)

I think a lot of the Armor type problems would be solved if classes didn't change their preferred type at level 40, and instead itemization was changed to accommodate Mail and Plate wearers from 1 to 40 (so the Blood Knight set would be changed to Plate).

The 60 PVP set restriction is just stupid, though. After arguing that PVP Titles returning didn't hurt anybody, they do this and essentially validate every selfish opinion players had with the Titles.

I rescind my previous suggestion and wish to support Mitawa's suggestion of simply letting Leather>Mail and Mail>Plate classes xmog both.

Im confused. about this blood knight set.....are yall talking about this?http://www.wowhead.com/transmog-set=278which looks ugly and i've never seen a Blood knight wear?or this? http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/shadow-council/Hiza/advanced(ok so i liked some of the crusader gear better than other pieces of Inferno Tempered set)Cus everytime I see my paladin i think of how great it would look on a blood elf paladin.must be some set i dont know about.Even the Thorium set would probably make a better blood knight than the Blood Knight set

@SchadenfreudeThat lvl 60 pvp armor wasn't added later, you had to earn the titles to get it. I know, I wore it pre BC. And considering all the perks they took away from high ranking pre BC pvp players, it's nice to get at least one small perk back.

If you're looking for a "blood knight" set, feel free to give this a try:http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/burning-legion/Logitech/simple (wowhead: http://www.wowhead.com/compare?items=30766:24934.-18:32073:30769:30767:30768:32083:29382:25549;24940.-18#modelviewer:4:7;96730;6;40767;3;97265;5;21580;10;97175;8;96744;1;97267;16;40592;19;37484:10+0:0)I'm using the spaulders of dementia as I like the claws. Although there's not a real close plate match to what the npc "blood knights" wear, I find that the darkcrest shoulder piece makes a good substitue as well.
