You know what they say about leaving the best for last? Well, Blizzard waited until the bitter end to give us a preview of what hunter and priest tier 13 will look like. And by "wait until the bitter end to give us a preview," I mean "not give us a preview at all before the patch 4.3 PTR goes live and the art gets datamined at MMO-Champion
In any case, the new tier is here, and it's certainly interesting. Priest tier 13, Dying Light, is loaded with some pretty unusual masks that invoke memories of the creepy-cool tier 6. After looking at it for the last few minutes, I can confirm that I will have terrible nightmares tonight involving that mask. Soulless and terrifying. Which, I guess, means they got the design just right
Hunters are getting Wyrmstalker, a cool-looking, Frostwyrm-inspired set. Remember that scene in The Empire Strikes Back
where Luke crawls into the dead Blue Dragon for warmth? And remember how he stayed in there way too long, until it decayed into naught but bone? And then how he wore the dragon's corpse when he went off to fight Deathwing? Remember that? That's what you get, hunters.
The full preview of hunter and priest tier 13 is available just after the break or over on MMO-Champion.
