Okay, so I dropped the ball on this one. The gloves are, unfortunately, a drop from Trial of the Crusader (curse you, faction-specific raid drops), which means they are faction-locked to the Horde. That said, I haven’t flagged this with a “Horde Only” sticker because those gloves, though admittedly pretty cool, aren’t going to make or break the set.

If you’re Alliance and can’t find alternative gloves, let me know and I’ll scrape together some ideas for you.

On the other side of the coin, if it looks like  Quest Reward Breastplate of the Undercover Thorium Brother is an Alliance-only quest reward, never fear. There’s a Horde quest that offers the same model reward.

I generally try to limit the number of pieces I use from each expansion, but for this outfit I bent a few rules. Anything to make Vendor - Gold Phantom Armor work, given that the rest of its in-game set is actually mail.

And yeah, this was meant to be available to all plate-wearing classes, but Mists of Pandaria loot rules mean warriors and death knights won’t be able to win Mists of Pandaria Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Spaulders of the Emperor’s Rage. Unless you’ve got a secret healing off-spec, sorry guys. This one’s for Paladins only.

It’s red…?

I’m going to go with red.

And we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming.

I don’t spend a lot of time working with Death Knights, if only because of my grasp of their resource system is basically, “Buttons! Press them! Hope for the best!” Still, I like death and I like purple, so when I stumbled onto Wrath of the Lich King Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Death’s Bite a Death Knight special seemed appropriate.

And hey, pointy shoulders! How can you go wrong?

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.
