Gahh, I hate those shoulders. Not because they're not cool, but because when I first saw it I was like "Spirit beast shoveltusk!"
Personally not a HUGE fan of the new tier gear (though it is slightly growing on me), but the rest of the gear from ICC looks like what I dreamed Northrend's gear would look like when they first announced WotLK. So glad they saved it for the last (big) content patch. Hopefully they will give me plenty of time to level and gear a few alts before releasing Cataclysm.
Yay for new things to kill with!
Wow, these shoulderpads sure look... special...You've outdone yourself once again, Mr. Blizzard Shoulder Armor Designer Guy!
When I look at the drakkari axt, I hope there will be a northrend Zul'Aman in Zul'Drak...I shure loved Zul'Aman...
The azure dragon theme on some items struck me as strage, then I read the description "bow_1h_nexus_d_01", "sword_2h_nexus_d_01", etc.Why the hell is Nexus in those names? Are these items that SHOULD have dropped in there but were put on hold for later use? Strangeness abounds.Yes. Back in beta people datamined weapon models. Back in the day every dungeon was suppos to drop UNIQUE weapon, shoulder etc models.Example: Bows (Northrend, The Nexus, Utgarde Keep, Drak'Tharon Keep, and CoT: Stratholme.) 2hand swords Look below. The 2hand sword is now 1hand sword. And the axes are now from 5man. Onehand axe model was suppos to drop from Draktharon ( axes.)More images Here. most items represent very many similarities. Not sure do I mind, they are pretty awesome models but geez.. if only they actually dropped where they were meant to drop and not just pulled out of files and slapped to new 5man. The nexus sword feels bit out of place to drop from icecrown...but yeah like I said, it looks good so I guess im cool with it.
Going by Blizzard's tier previews, the shoveltusk shoulders seem to be the ones that shaman will get.
