Talented concept artist and illustrator Handclaw showed us a few months ago how wonderful and chic class-specific transmogsets can be with the Tradition Armor for Void Elves, Nightborn, and Lightforged Draenei. Artist Sercan Özyurt (aka Lordozy) also follows a similar idea with his exceptionally detailed concepts. Highlights of his work include the dreamlike druid forms of the Nachtfae, as well as designs for many unique transmogsets and mounts such as the Kyrian Pegasus. By the way, you can check out more Pact designs for Venthyr, Necrolord, and Kyrian druid forms in his gallery on Artstation.
Today we're taking a look at Sercan's creations for Tradition armor for Humans, Orcs, Night Elves, and Undead. The concept artist paid special attention to the backstories of the races in his work, incorporating classic WoW lore into his drawings. Each armor design was inspired by a great Warcraft hero whose story and appearance are iconic to that race.

Sercan Özyurt comments: "Here is my Heritage Armor Concept based on Legendary Orc Hero Rehgar Earthfury. Why Rehgar? Rehgar was a successful gladiator slave master who "owned" Varian Wrynn while he was suffering from amnesia. Also His armor pieces fits for all classes for orcs. I tried to draw armors More iconic heroes like thrall, drekthar, saurfang, nazgrel etc.. But they are so class specific. A mage can't wear doom hammer plates. It doesn't fit to class fantasy. I decided to release rehgar armor suit with some upgrades. I hope you like it.
Note: Origins of Orcs came from shamanism. I was inspired draenor orc's shamanism & warcraft 3 shaman culture for that armor."

Sir Anduin Lothar, the Lion of Azeroth, was the last true descendant of the ancient Arathi bloodline, a knight champion of the Kingdom of Azeroth (later known as the Kingdom of Stormwind) during the First War, and the supreme commander of the armies of the Alliance of Lordaeron during the Second War. He perished in combat at the base of Blackrock Mountain just before the end of the Second War and the closing of the Dark Portal. He is considered one of the greatest warriors of all time. I designed armor based on Anduin Lothar for Heritage Armor. I hope you like it. Also Huge backpack is a part of Shoulder piece (Not cloak slot) This is my solution for huge cloaks."

Banshee Queen left her people and forsaken rules are changed forever. They were weak, they were abondoned. But they are masters of Plague! They are blight spreaders, engineers, mad siencists! And I decided to make heritage armor based on their powerful weapon ''Blight''. They can breathe blight without any damage, so they craft blight suits to become monstrous warriors! Edit: Also not add so many glow effects to this one. I hope you like it!"

In my custom scenario: Player helps maiev's journey to become night warrior for finding Tyrande at Maw. Maiev Shadowsong Transforms to Night warrior and his appearance changed and player earns new armor. I hope you like it!"
His concept art for the mysterious promotional mount Fireplume Poenix, discovered in the patch 9.0.5 data, is also worth a look. Sercan's firebird appears much more alive than the classic phoenix Al'ar from World of Warcraft (buy now €14,99 ).
