    I had this entire outfit on my paladin at-level.
    * I highly recommend ignoring the Vanguard Headdress.
    * The Vanguard Pauldrons work fine, but the Breastplate does already come with texture that covers the shoulders
    * If you’re not a fan of flared boots, or are having difficulties getting ahold of the Vanguard Sabatons, consider the slim Sapphiron’s Scal Boots. They have the same color palette as the rest of the Vanguard, matching quite well.
    * If you find yourself uncomfortable with how many stares your female toon is getting while wearing this, consider a Stylish Blue Shirt. It wont help cover your behind, but it will deäccentuate the skimpiness of the Breastplate, and its blue matches perfectly with the rest of the outfit.

    Anyone know an alternate for the gloves? Was sure there was another pair with the same colors/model that comes from a quest.. x.x

    If you are alliance and want a little something to cover your back, get Mori’s Cloak from the quest The Lost Pilot in Dun Morogh.

    I got the Vanguard Chest Look alike through a quest. Same think only called Nether Protector’s Chest. There’s a couple short quests to get it in Blade’s Edge mountains. The quest giver is Leoroxx or something like that. I’m trying to find other look alikes for the rest, but not having much luck.

    The drop rate is depressingly low, took me forever to collect this set even thru the auction house, and even then I made some substitutions… Warrior’s Embrace for the chest (boss drop from Shade of Hakkar, Sunken Temple) Conqueror’s Girdle for the waist (green item found on AH, a thin gold belt) and Sapphiron’s Scale Boots. Still watching for the chest, as Warrior’s Embrace is a little darker blue and doesn’t have the gold embellishment.

    Still looking to get a hold of this set but sadly I haven’t seen it on the ah in quite some time. I have been farming this set for weeks but it seems as if this armor has completely disappeared! Any knowledge that this set is still in-game and where.would be much appreciated thank you

    I can confirm, at the present date, that the sabatons drops from the rare Setis (the one standing right in front of the raids in Silithus. I brought everything else (apart from chest and boots) from the AH of our server (Azralon, where we are basically 85% of horde players). That is of course, after almost 5 months checking the AH. The legs, which imo is the most rare piece to find, I spent 8.5k.
