Patch 4.2: Druid tier 12 revealed, new tier armor information and models
Wowhead has put up some excellent shots of the previously unseen druid tier 12 armor set called Obsidium Arborweave, as well as new information about the names of other classes' tier 12 sets. Also, we were anxiously awaiting the new molten giant model -- and lo and behold, it is awesome and is definitely the source of inspiration for the warrior tier 12 set.

First, most tier 12 sets have their names associated with them. Here's the rundown of the sets we have names for:
  • Death knight Elementium Deathplate
  • Druid Obsidium Arborweave
  • Hunter Flamewalker (should have been Flamewalkerstalker IMO)
  • Paladin Immolation
  • Rogue Dark Phoenix
  • Warrior of the Molten Giant
Druids finally get a peek at their set, Obsidium Arborweave, which looks like a ... well ... I don't really know. Malfurion's tree? Fandral-inspired? We haven't seen the shoulders, which will most likely give us a better look at the inspiration. So far, however, I'm digging it.

Finally, Wowhead also has awesome 3-D models of the new molten giant, king pain in the butt from the old Molten Core, back for sweet revenge. The new, higher poly count models look great and give me hope for soon-to-be updated models that Blizzard could throw some art polish on. New molten giants, welcome to the club.

The news is already rolling out for the upcoming WoW Patch 4.2! Preview the new Firelands raid, marvel at the new legendary staff, and get the inside scoop on new quest hubs -- plus new Tier 12 armor!
