Upon donning a full set of Haradric armour, the player gets the achievement "Harad Soldier."
The texture received an update as of Public Beta 27, adding gold scales to parts of the armour in accordance with the lore description. In Public Beta 28, the armor became even more red and gold, losing most of its black coloration.
It is a common misconception that Haradric armour provides protection from the desert heat of Near Harad. This is not true, and has never been true. However, Harad Robes have this function.
The Southron warlord's helmet is a visual enhancement of the normal Haradric helmet. It is worn by Southron warlords.
The warlord helmet offers the same protection (2 armour points / 8% damage reduction) and has the same durability (264) as regular Haradric helmets.
Regular pieces of Haradric armour are all crafted using the vanilla armour recipe shapes with bronze ingots on a Haradric crafting table. The warlord helmet utilizes an undamaged Haradric helmet along with two sticks and one piece of leather.
