Here’s the full set on Wowhead.

Ever checked your character’s profile on Battle.net only to discover that somehow, while running dungeons half-asleep, you equipped not one but two grey pieces of gear?
Plate Transmog - Blood Elf Paladin - Winged TriumphSo, really, the title of this post should read “What Cathedral Should Be Wearing, Because No Self-Respecting Paladin Should Be Rocking A Clout Mace And A Cloth Twill Belt In End Game Content.” But that’s a bit long.

This set works without the tabard, obviously, but so far as the Paladin fascination with light is concerned, the opportunity to glow with ethereal light every 30 minutes is hard to pass up.

In terms of personal preference, I keep my cloaks hidden. In this case, though, the winged animation effect that Gong-Lu, Strength of Xuen procs occasionally is visible regardless. Of course, it’s a legendary, so if you’ve actually bothered to play this expansion, you’ll probably spend most of your days wearing something better.

  1. Sadly, the shoulderguards-of-winged-triumph can ONLY be auto looted to paladins with healing loot enabled. There is no gear on the RF bosses, only personal loot, so there is no way a warrior or dk can get them.

      • I’m sorry for the confusion! You’re right, of course — those shoulders are locked to Paladins, making this unavailable to other plate-wearing classes. The Cloth, Leather, Mail, and Plate categories don’t differentiate by class, they just collect every set made of that armour type, so if that’s what the category description says it’s clearly wrong. I’ll fix it!
