I was all set to talk about prot PVP when Blizzard went and released a preview of tier 13 for warriors. Frankly, I think it was a little cruel of them. For one thing, we now know that warriors win the gear look competition for tier 13. Sorry, everyone. If for some reason I'm right and Blizzard's going with Aspect-themed armor sets, I apologize to whatever classes get the Ysera and Alexstrasza sets.
But it's also cruel because they didn't release any specifics about the set at all. All we know is how it will look (pretty awesome) and not what it will do. What will the set bonuses be like? Are we again going to be in a position where there's no shoulder option outside of tier? These are questions that keep me up at night, people.
In the blog post that revealed our tier 13 look, there's also a visual overview of every currently existing warrior tier set. We did a big post on transmogrification a couple of weeks back, so it seems like now's a good time to start talking about that again. Rather than just throw tier at you over and over again, though, I'd like to try for something more thoughtful. With Blizzard giving us a chance to look at every set of tier gear for the class, let's talk about the cosmetic approach of the warrior over World of Warcraft's existence. This will probably take me a few weeks to get through, so I'm going to alternate it with the PVP series already in progress.
