Trial of Valor: Chosen Dead Transmog Armor Sets and Matching Weapons
The Trial of Valor raid introduces a series of unique transmog sets. These are obtainable either as a drop from the raid's bosses or a quest:
Trial of Valor: The Lost Army
. This quest requires you to loot 1000
Valarjar Soul Fragment
from the raid or from completing
Helarjar-related World Quests
, which became available with the release of the Trial of Valor raid.
The reward is a special item which unlocks "Chosen Dead" transmog set appearances, including the only way to get matching Helms and Shoulders for the Trial of Valor armor.
We loved these appearance sets and have come up with some suggestions for matching weapons to complete your outfit. We'd love to hear more suggestions in the comments for the other colors shown in the video! Check out our
and try on all these transmog sets and
save them as an Outfit

Mythic Trial of Valor Kill Video Round Up
Trial of Valor has been cleared and Helya has been defeated! We wanted to highlight some of the amazing kills of Mythic Odyn, Guarm, and Helya. While Trial of Valor wasn't a long race it was a tough one and Helya lived for quite a long time. For the time being we only have the Helya video from Method, keep an eye out for more guilds to release their videos in the days to come!
