One of my favourite aspects of Skyrim is having my own house with armor stands that I can display my favourite armors on, so having this implemented in wow is actually so awesome. So far, Z’s customized her house in her order hall with only 1 completed armor set and that lonely set is making me really want to go collect more pieces.
So with that I mind I actually looked at what’s needed to get the sets to show. I don’t physically need to have the pieces at the same time, so pieces I’ve collected in the past and sold/destroyed will count but because I don’t remember what I have collected in the past, I’m just going to keep all the pieces I collect from now on in void storage and maybe I’ll get lucky and complete sets on the stands before all the pieces drop (hopefully that makes sense).
There are some requirements that make it bit trickier – all the pieces have to be from the same spec set, so I know there’s a ton of old content tokens I’ve turned in and I haven’t worried about whether the piece I got was for feral/boomkin/resto etc because the appearance was all the same. So moving forward I’ll make sure all tokens are redeemed for resto tier.
The tier sets also have to come from the lowest level versions, so the tokens need to come from 10-man normal raid version. At least this part will make the transmog runs a bit faster. And even though only shoulders and head shows on the stands, you have to collected ALL the pieces that go with that tier set.
Tier 1 – 8 pieces
Molten Core (waist and wrists are from trash)
Tier 2 – 8 pieces
Molten Core, Black Wing Lair
Tier 2.5 – 5 pieces
Temple of Ahn’Qiraj (AQ40) (quest rewards from dragons right after the first boss)
Tier 4 – 5 pieces
Karazhan, Gruul’s Lair, Magtheridon’s Lair
Tier 5 – 5 pieces
Tempest Keep, Serpentshrine Cavern
Tier 6 – 8 pieces
Hyjal Summit, Black Temple, Sunwell Plateau
Tier 7 – 5 pieces
Naxxramas, Obsidian Sanctum
Tier 8 – 5 pieces
Tier 9 – 5 pieces
Trial of the Champion (Vendor)
Tier 10 – 5 pieces
Icecrown Citadel (Vendor)
I’ve had this idea in the back of my mind for ages to make one weekend a raid weekend where I take a toon and run through all the old raids in the game in order just to see them all. That idea would tie in really well with starting to fill up the armor stands.
