Priest Tier set items from Burning Crusade‘s fabled Karazhan raid.

Incarnate Raiment; Gladiator’s Satin Armor
Because the shoulder style is the same, for a long time I thought the PvP style was just a recolor of the raid style. I didn’t realize how different the robes were until I put them next to each other!

A Green Dragon Princess

Dreamweave Circlet, Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Gladiator’s Mooncloth Robe, Sandswept Sandals, Inscribed Serpent Staff

Touch of Ruby

The Karazhan Priest Tier bracers and boots are important enough components of the overall look of this kit that I felt like it merited inclusion in this collection.

Some combinations of Tier set and Legion Artifact weapon were just meant to be.
I have always been covetous of the NPC-exclusive recolor of the Prophecy Mantle worn by Kosta Dawnchaser at Thunder Cleft in Krasarang Wilds — but I didn’t know the robe details well enough to recognize the differences in the robe style until I stood them side-by-side to take the pictures.
