Pote vs Swiftsteel: Round 1

Post  Pote on Tue Apr 03, 2012 6:59 pm

I know everyone and their mom like's these things, but damn, they're just so cool on an Orc. Sooooo, picked up the pattern way cheap and I've started playing at how to put them together. So far, needless to say, it's a bit rough in the going, but I'm not going to give up.

The current is this:
http://www.wowhead.com/compare?items=32570:53111:50849:51000:23518:23513

Helm: None Yet
Shoulder: Swiftsteel Shoulders
Chest: Flamebane Breastplate
Gloves: Ymijar Lord's Hanguard's
Belt: Flesh-Shaper's Gurney Strap
Legs: Felsteel Leggings
Feet: Scion's Treads (or any similiar 251 boot model)

The Gloves / Belt / Feet make the shoulders look less pally and more dark. And the gold in both is roughly the same tone. I'm not sold on the Chest / Legs though. I feel like to pull it all together it'd be something better in a more solid gold (vs yellow) to pick up the shoulders, then maybe a silver or black tie-in. Helm is up in the air as well, though Brighthelm of Justice looks pretty bad ass with the shoulders as an Orc.

Weapon will eventually be sword, but I'm not worried about that till I see 416 Gurth.

Any inputs?

I'm a big fan of contrasting yet complimenting pieces, and the hands etc work well with the shoulders for me. I'll have a look for the chest/legs when I get in game ^_^

Legs / Chest subbed out. Valor BOA Chest, Legs, Helm subbed in. Only thing not sure of is legs.



This is with Brighthelm. Actually like this better. Still need new legs.

Really like what you've done here, especially pairing the Brighthelm. I looked around and couldn't find any legs that I liked more than the Valor. Possibly Marshal's, but since that's not an option, I'd stick with Valor if it were me.

+1 for a great Swiftsteel set.

Haha, everyone knows where I stand on those shoulders. They look so good they draw you in, but once you're there trying to figure out how to make them work you quickly find you have to push your creativity to the next level. One of the most difficult set of shoulders to match with, particularly for non-Paladins. My take, you're still only about 50% of the way there. Valor is interesting and takes on a different look on the hunched body model of an Orc, so I'm curious to see where this ends up.

So, I think this is pretty close to the finished product.

I removed Valor Helm and added Brighthelm of Justice. The only real tweak I see potentially is finding a really awesome belt to sub in for Valor and/or maybe a Pair of Boots. I really do like how everything goes together so well:

Notes: Like the way it fades from light up top to darker below.
Not sure I like boots / belt.
Think this might be a tank set, potentially with the Maladath, Runed Blade of the Black Flight and a shield TBD.

Update. Found better legs / belt combination that I like.

Legguards of the Fallen Crusader and Waistband of Wrath. Lightens it up from full valor.

Wow, this is looking really good so far! I think the boots/gloves don't quite match up, though. They're more of a bronze color than the bright gold of the Shoulders/chest/helm.

The legs are an interesting choice. You might be able to work off of those. I recently picked those up, myself, but haven't planned something out with them yet.

This is coming along really nicely though. Keep at it, you're almost there!

Yea, that's been my major struggle is matching the damn gold of the shoulders with literally any other gold in the game...

It doesn't match the Gold on any Tier, it doesn't match Malaketh sword, it doesn't match Draconic axe, it kinda sorta vaguely matches some Pally pvp pieces. Actually playing around with subbing in Wrath pieces. Should have a new mog soon (MORE TIME FOR RUNS H MADNESS IS DEADDDDDDD!!!).
