Here’s the full set on Wowhead

This one just breaks my heart. When I’m designing a transmog set, I start with a piece I love — in this case, Bulwark of the Ancient Kings — and check Wowhead to ensure it’s still around before pulling together the rest of the set. But while scouring the comments section in preparation for this post I discovered that, whatever Wowhead might suggest, the pattern required to create this breastplate is no longer available.

Even worse, the item is soulbound when crafted, which means only blacksmiths who learned the pattern before the removal of armour specializations could ever hope to use it.

If you meet that criteria, I envy you greatly.

If you don’t, Heroic Judicator’s Chestguard is an okay substitute.
