The Death Knight class hall set, by all rights, shouldn’t work. But it does. Somehow the conglomeration of colors and detail just fits. I am in love with the prison-bar helm, but the belt is hit and miss on certain races, as it becomes comically large around their middles. One of the things I noticed about the helm, that most other helms can’t do, is that it retains its fantastic look even when put on a Tauren or Worgen. I’m not a huge fan of helms over their snouts as they look funny most of the time (though I do everything I can to cover those gaping teeth on the female Worgen), but this is one I wouldn’t mind slapping on my puppy DK to rock.
For weapons to go with this, if you choose to wear the full set, I’d recommend anything with a green glow. Unfortunately it overplays the Unholy spec’s fantasy rather hard with the green, and I would have loved another neutral color set like the starter gear. However, there are no rules stating green is exclusive to Unholy!
Who wore it best: Goblins – both genders absolutely rock this set.
Who should avoid this: Any class where the belt skull is overly large, and Dwarves. I’m not sure why the waistband is wider than the rest of it, but it’s very unflattering and only does it to Dwarves.
