Top Picks: Dungeon/Raid Gear
Sometimes there's gear that looks like nothing you've ever seen before--maybe it reflects the lore of a specific encounter, looks like removed vanilla gear, or is an absurd color combination. I'm going to highlight some of the more interesting items from dungeons that I've come across in mostly vanilla and TBC, but I'm sure each reader has their own favorites as well. In later tiers, the 'offset' items looked more like class tier and less unique, which I'm not covering below: saving the look-alike tier for the next guide! (Also, there's a ton of cool greens, but those will be in the next guide as well.)
I've also highlighted, as per the request of my awesome guild, some of my favorite capes--you can hide them, but sometimes a nice flowing cape really adds to the overall look.
Non-Specific Tier Sets
Everyone has been asking me about featuring matching quasi-sets without class restrictions. You know, stuff with 5 different names that isn't officially related, but together looks exactly like a tier set your class can't normally equip. Purple Judgment, blue Bloodfang, etc. I think they're awesome, but it will take us a few more days to code all the items that mimic class tier. In the meantime, here are some non-class specific sets. Even if your class doesn't benefit from a set bonus, you can equip it.
