Mar 12th 2012 9:39AM This is an excellent observation, in my opinion. Media stereotypes, in other games, books, and films, have a large hand in crafting cultural stereotypes that people aren't often aware of. Look at Lucy and Susan from the Lion, the witch, and the wardrobe, or Arwen in Lord of the Rings (the book, not the movie). Female characters in staple fantasy are typically gentle in approach (which obviously has cultural roots). Things are so different now for women, but the cultural ideas live on.

(the gloves are alliance only, but it shares models with horde version. Horde can use "flamethrower's gloves")
In retrospect, I should have started with mail from the start. It wasn't that hard to find the pieces afterall, though I couldn't get the best looking gloves in my opinion for color and model. Still, some of the chestpieces are really ideal and even if the pauldrons on this one are more yellow than orange the look is good. The reason I started with plate is I did a mail article two weeks ago. Anyway, enjoy hunters. Some of these pieces will take a lot of farming.
Mar 10th 2012 1:27PM Thank you! Looking at yours gave me a nice start, and hope that I'd be able to recreate the look in mail. Here is my version.
Mar 9th 2012 11:16AM It went like this
Imperial Plate Leggings
Common white shirt
Girdle of the Protector
There wasn't a helm that looked like his hat, which is why cloth eventually won out. I also didn't like that you couldn't quite get a good foresty green in plate, then I realized "why not just wear a green tabard?" That way the chest piece wouldn't matter at all (the emerald breastplate, and all its lookalikes, are rare) I played around with some guild tabards and think you could do something workable with that. The tabard of wildhammer looks all right too, but you could go in any direction based on the shoulders you use. Crystalvein are just one option
Mar 5th 2012 8:12PM Okay so let me explain. In the tired mind of Dawn Moore, Top Gun and trying to top HPS meters are related, especially when you have a picture of two Mimiron's Heads flying across a picturesque sky.
Mar 1st 2012 7:50PM Smee, the content has been nerfed at this point ... twice. Now, I don't say that to rain on the parades of players who still feel accomplished for getting heroic kills post nerf, I just want to remind you before you go bragging about clearing DS in 3ish hours after two major nerfs as a big feat.
Humility is a virtue.

Feb 24th 2012 10:28PM Footwraps of Quenched Fire or Treads of Implicit Obedience have a similar look. Flayer-Crush Boots, Atoll Treaders, Rockslide Treads or Nephropsis Treads gets you a similar color scheme.
