Across the sea is home and it is bathed in light...
I think Mataoka is onto something here. My mood brightened up some after posting my screenshots yesterday. Maybe it was because I'd stopped procrastinating and felt good for that. Or maybe it was because I spent a while looking at screenshots of pretty things.
So I'm doing away with more of my procrastinating today and finally posting my entry for Sam's Transmog Contest. I saw some of the other entries and really couldn't resist making one of my own. I didn't even know this tabard existed! And I'm starting to think draenei are contagious. Because of course this set had to be built on a draenei, since it's their tabard. And of course it would have to be a paladin set. Because paladins. So I made myself a little draenei to model it for me, and I may have fallen a little bit in love with her while I was fiddling with it.
Hand of Retribution
Head: None (couldn't find anything I liked)
Shoulders: Pauldrons of Winged Triumph (Raid Finder Variant)
Chest: Breastplate of Radiant Glory
Hands: Plated Fist of Hakoo
Waist: Greatbelt of Living Waters
Legs: Blessed Trillium Greaves
Back: Shroud of the Citadel
Sword: Satay's Stabbing Sword
Tabard: Tabard of the Hand (probably obvious)
And a little variation for the prot/holy paladins:
Hand of Protection (see what I did there?)
Mace: Mace of Apotheosis
Shield: Vicious Gladiator's Redoubt
Not 100% happy with the gloves or weapons, but I'm surprisingly happy with the rest of it. I think it mirrors the tabard's downward fade to darkness pretty well. I had a lot of fun doing this.
