Land of the Dead – Tyrant Armor

June 27, 2009

A new end-game dungeon means a new Armor Set.  Yay!  While the stats and bonuses have been highly debated and adjusted, the artwork is some of the best in WAR to date.  The following post includes not just the current Set Bonuses to help you determine if it’s something you want, but also images of the armor itself.  It is presented in its undyed format on generic characters and while the pictures aren’t huge, they do give you a good idea of what the armor looks like on your class.  Please keep in mind, these images are without weapons, accessories or trophies, so your final Land of the Dead setup has the possibility to look even more epicly cool since those items also have some amazing artwork (especially the 5-pc accessory cloaks!).

I hope you’re all having fun in the Land of the Dead and, as always…



So I don’t usually do lots of media in my posts, but the artwork is just so amazing on the majority of these that I felt everyone needed to see them.  Even if you don’t like the stats on your class’ set, the looks alone may drive you to obtain it just because.  (Or in my case, the stats make me want it even though the IB armor is plain, like most of their armor. hehe)

For those that haven’t figured it out yet, sets and their bonuses are usually assigned to sections of class-types.  For instance, most know that Warrior Priests and Disciples of Khaine tend to share the same types of stats/bonuses.  However, classes like Black Orc and Swordmaster share them as well.  Because of that, I am going to clump these in what should be their matchups so as to only list the stats once and then will have the images of the armor after.

Note : New types of set-proc abilities were introduced with the Land of the Dead.  In many cases, they adjust to your stats, so pay attention to these on your sets as they are very interesting and, in at least one case, worth suiting up fully for.

General Information

The Tyrant set is obtainable in the Land of the Dead.  While the Gloves and Belt are purchaseable via tokens from the merchant in your Expedition Camp in the Necropolis of Zandri, the rest of it comes from the Tomb of the Vulture Lord.

Unlike past dungeons, this set introduces a new system for looting it.  The items drop from the Bosses as repairables in three different ways.  First, the Boots and Helm drop as repairables for either Tanks/Healers or DPS classes.  Second, the Shoulders drop as repairables for each Race.  Finally, the Chest drops as repairable by all.  If I remember correctly, it’s a 50% chance that an armor piece will drop off any given Boss.  All in all, these changes make for a much more enjoyable looting experience while crawling through the Tomb as compared to other dungeons.

Also, since each Boss is in effect a PQ, you’re also earning the tokens you need for the purchaseable pieces, as well as other goodies.  So even if you’re not so excited about your set, completing the Tomb of the Vulture Lord will still get you things you need to customize your character the way you want to.

      The bird may seem odd, but at least the Carmen Miranda look wasn’t included for the KotBS helm, for once.

      its not a bird… its a griffon… it has a lion-torso
      and thats what their helmets mainly are about:

      to be an object of prestige, to show noble origin

    Yeah, I like how most the order ones look awesome (exception WL lol)

    Why do they want my zealot to look like he’s in the K##?

    Shaman armor looks like squig armor.

    Only great destro armor is the Blackguard.

    Aww, you forgot the Magi! And the unique back item, everyone has a cloak that’s different too. Although that’s less your fault.

    Gobins, by the way, are supposed to look like crap. Cause they’re literally wearing crap most of the time. And the zealot doesn’t look anything like the K##, only if you really want to stretch it.

    The IB armour is a little plain(and I don’t like the axe on the chest), but the gauntlets and helmet are great. And like all dwarf stuff, the real charm is in the subtle details and general dwarfiness. The runepriest mantle and belt are fantastic in the same way, I love the pouches on it.

    The Archmage, sadly, gets to reprieve of its chronic Static Sleeve Syndrome. Such a tragic disease, really.

    Again, I didn’t forget the Magus. I took screenshots, but I have no clue what happened to them.

    Also, I didn’t forget the cloaks. Those are part of the 5-piece accessory sets, not part of the Tyrant Armor Set.

    The Marauder, Rune Priest and Black Guard all look especially sick. Now if the Black Guard could receive some love outside the art department…

  11. June 28, 2009 6:34 pm

    Zealot looks sick.

    • gaarawarr permalink
      June 28, 2009 6:48 pm

      I thought so, some people don’t like it though. I have to say, I’ve always been tempted to roll a zealot somewhere because I love how dark their sets look, this one is especially so.

    June 29, 2009 11:35 am

    Chosen’s my fave for sure – hopefully the dyes work well with it. Wish I could see the Magus set.

    The Shaman set looks very disappointing.

  15. Brikx permalink
    June 29, 2009 12:01 pm

    Personal favourite: Marauder!

    Love the chosen, quite like the choppa/shaman. The others I’m indifferent on other than the zealot/knight/slayer which I ain’t a fan of. Main reason for the slayer is because I always think they should wear shorts rather than just a belt 🙂

    Least Favourite: Black Orc… unfortunately my main class 😦 The helm is horrible personally, invader is one of the best looks there is. Also hate the fact the bonus is parry while other tanks get block, Pah!

    Nice pictures though, thanks for sharing!

    I actually like the Knight (my main), with the Gryphon on the head. It’s a good looking set, to my eyes.

    Thanks for posting these!

    I totally disagree with the opinion that the shaman set looks awfull, I think the helmet looks totally awesome… The rest of the set is not really different..
    I hate the sentinel and the invasor helmet… (A gobbo shaman has to look like crap :), so a high hat is not an option for me)

  22. Krosuss permalink
    July 1, 2009 11:10 am

    These do look super cool. I’ve never felt my toons look particularly great on the character screen … but in game they look much, much better. Looking forward to getting this set at some point!

    Lion was totally right about the slayer/engi bracers thing… rofl mythic. Most of these sets range from meh to wtf were you thinking… I think WE and IB are the worst, IB in particular, it literally looks like a trash can with some pretty gold trim.

    • gaarawarr permalink
      July 1, 2009 2:45 pm

      It appears the bracers have already been switched correctly actually. Was just a bug in the assignment code on test. We should be good now.

    The Knight and Warrior Priest look amazing! They look totally revamped and actually stick out, and scream glory and badassary!A lot of the destro classes are already so over decorated that they don’t seem to have much more to put on them i’d say. Overall good job!

    well it’s more a 10% chance to drop maybe even less so it still ends up being a mindless grind made annoying by lag in the end:P

    sigh killed the 3rd boss 51 times now no shoulders…. wish mythic would give us something for doing it so like after killed said boss 30 times or so you can buy the pice off a library merchent ouls make it much easiser for the unlucky ppl I.e. me lol

    well and make it easier for multiple tali sets

    • gaarawarr permalink
      December 7, 2009 8:38 pm

      It’s actually not a 10% chance unless they changed it from when we tested it. However, flipping a coin 30 times can still only get you heads 3 times so it can appear to be lower than expected.

    What’s with you guys hating the WLs? I think the armor is HAWT, specially those cone heads and the tiny lion head aaannd…. wait a sec. They DO suck. Hmmph. At least the mechanic is awesome. Having familiar’s in MMOs is an advantage many people forget. What could be better then being able to go AFK and come back to a pile of dead bodies at your feet? Farming is easy when you kill 2 at once, and new players are ALWAYS impressed by a large beast thing taller then they are! WLs are like the “Forgotton Class,” cause not many people have seen a good player for one. The correct way to play a WL is to target a squishy, send your lion into the fray, silence and disarm, then Fetch! them out from behind the tanks! Healing while in mid-air is kind of hard for the healer, since you cant build up abilites, and getting them out of tank range cuts off Guard. Then, the DPS of both Lion and Player cuts them down, just in time for Fetch! to recharge. Easy as pie! Speaking of, where the hell do you get the Halfling Pie? I’ve searched everywhere on the Mythic Store, all I’ve found is the Skaven Skin Cloak. Phooey.
