Warlords of Draenor: Cragplate Armor

Warlords of Draenor has been out for while and I must admit most of the plate sets didn't do much for me. A lot of the armor was totally Iron Horde inspired. Shabby, drab, colorless, awkwardly over done in places. Most of it was "eh..." despite the glowing effects and moving parts. There were a few good sets though.

One of my preferred sets of plate armor to come out in WoD is the Cragplate gear. You can purchase the random greens from the Ravenskar set on the auction house or get the Cragplate set through questing. The Ravenskar pieces have the same model and it's a recolor of the Sharptusk Battleplate. While the Sharptusk is a pretty silver and maroon, the Cragplate combines my two favorite colors. Red and gold of course! I'm using mostly the Cragplate set with this transmog but I naturally switched out a few key pieces.

I actually don't have a full set of Cragplate in the screen shot. I'm rocking Partik's Purified Legplates and a pair of old pally tier gloves. Rossi's shoulders and Partik's legs are warrior tier 16 look alikes from Siege of Orgrimmar. They both drop off Ordos on Timeless Isle so any plate wearer can get them, provided they can get to Ordos of course. The pally gloves are from the Winged Triumph tier 16 paladin set, but look alikes drop off random mobs in Siege of Org, such as Romy's Reliable Grips.

The weapon is a standard WoD sort of weapon, very tusky or spikey. I like the glow effect and the fact that it actually looks like a two hand sword on my Blood Elf female, rather than just a knitting needle like most BEFem 2Hers. It's easy weapon to get. It's one of the Draenor treasures, random items all over the world that can be targetted and looted for an item. This one is a charred sword in a burnt patch in Talador. Once you loot it you have a free sword! No, you don't get to be King Arthur afterwards, it's not Excaliboar. There are other swords with the same model but different coloring.

On a side note, please accept my apologies for broken pictures! I will be updating my images soon and fixing the links. I forgot that this blog would be affected when I took down my site. Happy mogging!
