I love Draka's design. I look forward to collecting her armor on my necrolord mail char. :D
The Kyrian plate armor could’ve been better, but it’s not bad. I guess the inspiration for the shoulders is the Holy Grail maybe?
kyrian plate + paladin challenge mode = I am never changing my transmog again.
The Kyrian plate is pretty lame; You look like a giant cup or something. I so wish they had just given us the golden armor the actual kyrians wear. It is more simple but has awesome shapes and cool feel to it. In fact, it would have been better if they just gave us all of the stuff the kyrians and aspirants wear than what we got. I am envious of those armored shin guards and shirts with the leather collar, etc.
wow, this guy's the one who made that awesome leather set? the rigging is fantastic, it's like Genn's longcoat, it's 3d with minimal impact, it comes in some pretty sick shades, i love it. i got the lfr top glove, and leg finished last night on my rogue and she looks right outta DnD or something Say, stick around for the next armor set draft by the way you'd be perfect for the job.
Shadowlands Armors are ok, in fact they're bellow average. Dreanor/Legion armor designs were still way better. Both expacs had visual effects on all armor pieces such where SL armors have decent designs but no effects on anything but helmet and shoulders. I call that lazy work. U can't hide that.
I wish they had given Draka a more unique hairstyle, more closer to what she had in the cinematic. The swept back hair felt more fitting.
I'm sorry, but I still hate that Kyrian plate so much. I've tried to like pieces of it, but to no avail. It's hideous. Why not something glorious and angelic? Why not simply give us the same armor the Kyrian NPC's wear? Maybe we can't get them because their outfits have skin showing in a few places, and it seems to be illegal now for any new WoW transmogs to have more than a tiny bit of skin showing, usually an inch or two of the arms. Makes it really hard to show off the new tattoo and warpaint options. Sad.But yeah, Draka looks pretty cool. Wish we got to see more characters like her in the afterlife. I still can't fathom why anyone would choose to look like a random zombie/skeleton in the afterlife, instead of looking like Draka or Alexandros Mograine. Makes no sense lol, but whatever.
So I have noticed that the Kyrian armors take design elements from the various robots in Bastion. At least the leather and plate (which is what I play). The leather armor is similar to Bron and the big guys like him while the plate set is similar to the giant robots with the arm cannons that you use during questing. Kind of a neat design source. (they are not perfect 1 to 1, but you can definitely tell the inspiration is there).
Kyrian armor should have been based on what the Kyrian are wearing, the Greek inspired designs. It looks instead like one of their constructs and I find it quite generic, just a blocky set we've seen many times.
