10. Battleplate of the All-Consuming Maw
How To Get It: Throne of Thunder
Match With: Qwor N’lyeth, Sk’shuul Vaz
Race Choice: Undead
This epic Transmog set is inspired by the bones and sinew of a massive beast, featuring gaping maw shoulder armor and a horned helmet with a pretty cool effect.
This set is perfect for a more gritty and grim Transmog look, and it’s sure to make your enemies quiver in fear.
It also looks very good with a lot of the weapons from Ny’alotha, the Waking City.
9. Dreadwyrm Battleplate
How To Get It: The Nighthold
Match With: Stoneborn Goliath’s Cleaver, Wavecaller Cutlass
Race Choice: Dwarf or Human
For a more regal Transmog look, the elegant Dreadwyrm Battleplate is a great choice. This set features intricate details and beautifully detailed armor, adding a touch of elegance to any Death Knight’s Transmog wardrobe, while still looking dark and deadly.
Like many of the sets from The Nighthold this set looks amazing. All the versions are fantastic and pair well with different weapon transmogs.
8. Battleplate of Cyclopean Dread
How To Get It: Siege of Orgrimmar
Match With: Distinguished Blade of Cartel Al
Race Choice: Draenei
The different versions of this set all look great, but the Normal version is the most fitting on a Death Knight.
The helmet on this set is fantastic and can be used to put together a lot of great transmog looks.
7. Prideful Gladiator’s Dreadplate Armor
How To Get It: PvP Vendors
Match With: Ravager Hunting Spear, Leviathan Lure, Marrowfused Claymore, Axe of the Tauren Chieftans
Race Choice: Kul Tiran, Human or Orc
This is a very different-looking set, with a very primal, almost post-apocalyptic feel. It looks like it might have been inspired by Chaos Warriors from Warhammer.
The textures are very detailed and will make you stand out.
6. Dreadful Gladiator’s Dreadplate Armor
How To Get It: PvP Vendors
Match With: Sumprush Mace, Warmongering Gladiator’s Decapitator
Race Choice: Troll of Zandalari Troll
This Transmog set features heavy plate armor with sharp spikes, a horn, and a sinister smile to strike fear into the hearts of your enemies.
The set looks almost alien and reminds me a bit of a Predator.
Both color variations are great but personally, I prefer the green Honor version.
5. Magma Plated Battlearmor
How To Get It: The Bastion of Twilight
Match With: Shadowmourne
Race Choice: Dwarf or Dark Iron Dwarf
Both versions look good depending on if you want a fiery or icy look, the Normal version might be the most Death Knighty.
Either way, it’s an iconic look with a great helmet and shoulders to match.
4. Grand Sentinel’s Greatplate
How To Get It: Castle Nathria
Match With: Gilded Sinfall Bastard Sword, Gilded Crusader’s Morningstar,
Race Choice: Kul Tiran, Human, Dwarf, or Orc
This is another set that looks very Warhammer inspired. It is not exclusive to Death Knights but still fit the class very well.
The metallic textures look incredible on this set and really stands out.
3. Sanctified Scourgelord’s Plate
How To Get It: Icecrown Citadel
Match With: Icy Ebon Warsword
Race Choice: Human or Orc
This is maybe the most iconic Death Knight set, with the heavy plate armor that has skulls with glowing eyes all over it.
The helmet is very clean looking and the scalemail down the sides looks fantastic.
This is definitely the set for old-school Death Knight fans.
2. Plate of the Lost Catacomb
How To Get It: Heart of Fear
Match With: Jotungeirr, Destiny’s Call,
Race Choice: Undead or Nightborne
This is another great set for Undead Death Knights featuring skulls with glowing eyes on both the helmet and shoulder and some really cool horns.
It has a really demonic look to it.
All three versions of the set look really good!
