Patch 4.2: Shaman and warlock tier 12 sets revealed

Building on their previews from last week, Blizzard has released sneak peeks at two more tier 12 sets: shaman and warlock. The warlock set is pretty clearly based on Firelands boss Beth'tilac, the gargantuan fire spider queen; the shaman set is a little more general but you can definitely see influences from old Ragnaros gear like the Crown of Destruction. Besides, we all know that the best shaman sets are ones where chains and exploding rocks are involved, so chalk this one up as a win for patch 4.2.

Check out the warlock set after the cut, and be sure to check out our full tier 12 gallery below.

Patch 4.2 PTR: Tier 12 set bonuses

While the tier 12 sets on the patch 4.2 PTR aren't even technically sets yet, their set bonuses were still buried in the game files for observant folks. Blizzard told the truth -- these bonuses are pretty unique and a lot of them seem based thematically on Firelands, designed to fix some raiding spec issues, or both. Check them out below and after the cut!

Death knight DPS
  • 2-piece Your Horn of Winter ability also grants you 3 runic power every 5 sec for 2 min.
  • 4-piece Your critical strikes with melee abilities deal 15% additional damage as Fire damage over 4 sec.
Death knight tanking
  • 2-piece Your melee attacks cause Burning Blood on your target, which deals 800 Fire damage every 2 for 6 sec and causes your abilities to behave as if you had 2 diseases present on the target.
  • 4-piece Your Dancing Rune Weapon grants 15% additional parry chance.
