In the vast and immersive universe of World of Warcraft, players are constantly seeking new ways to express their characters’ individuality and pride. One of the most exciting features to be introduced in the new patch: Fury Incarnate – is the two new Heritage Armor sets, which allow players to showcase their character’s cultural heritage through unique and visually stunning armor sets. In the upcoming patch 10.1.7, two long-standing races, the Night Elves and the Forsaken, will be receiving their own Heritage Armor sets and other customizations, further expanding the options for their self-expression in the game.
The Night Elves, known for their deep connection to nature, Wild Gods and their ancient and mystical culture, will be receiving a breathtaking Heritage Armor set that perfectly captures the essence of their race. This armor set, known as the Kaldorei Protector’s Adornment, is a testament to the enduring legacy of the Night Elves and their commitment to protecting the balance of Azeroth.
To unlock the Night Elf Heritage Armor, players must first reach level 50 or above with their Night Elf character. Once this requirement is met, a new questline will become available, allowing players to embark on a journey to acquire the Kaldorei Protector’s Adornment. The questline starts at the Stormwind Embassy in Stormwind, where players can interact with a scroll on a table in the building, and pick up the quest “The Clarion’s Call”.
Throughout the questline, players will delve into the rich lore of the Night Elves and undertake various challenges and tasks that test their mettle. After the quest chain is done, they will obtain all the pieces of the Kaldorei Protector’s Adornment, including feet, chest, waist, head, shoulders, hands, legs, and wrists. Each piece of armor is exquisitely designed, featuring intricate details and ornate patterns that reflect the elegance and grace of the Night Elf culture.
Upon completing the questline and obtaining the full set of the Kaldorei Protector’s Adornment, Night Elf Demon Hunters will also be granted a Warglaive transmog, a symbol of their dedication and mastery as a Night Elf protector. This Heritage Armor set serves as a visual representation of the Night Elf’s rich history and their unwavering commitment to their people and the world of Azeroth.
