Conqueror’s Darkruned Sets


Conqueror’s Darkruned Sets
Death Knight Tier 8 (25-Player)

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 80
Source: BoP token purchases and boss drops from Ulduar
Availability: Death Knight only! Time consuming to farm and requires assistance

How to get the set:
There are two visually identical Conqueror’s Darkruned sets, one for each death knight role:
BloodConqueror’s Darkruned Plate
Frost/UnholyConqueror’s Darkruned Battlegear

The five items comprising each set are purchased using tokens which drop from Ulduar 25. Sadly there are no matching belts or bracers in the instance. There were originally no matching boots for this set, but during Cataclysm a pair of Ulduar boots were re-textured to match. These boots are listed below, along with alternatives we previously suggested for this outfit.

The following list highlights the source of each tier token, which may used to buy the related armor pieces from Dubin Clay, a Plate Armor Merchant in Dalaran.

If you are only interested in appearance, it doesn’t matter which armor set you choose, as they both look identical and are purchased from the same tokens anyway.

Head TokenCrown of the Wayward Vanquisher (BoP contained within Cache of Storms after defeating Thorim in Ulduar 25, at a 51% drop rate)
Shoulder TokenMantle of the Wayward Vanquisher (BoP drop from Yogg-Saron in Ulduar 25, at a 61% drop rate)
Chest TokenBreastplate of the Wayward Vanquisher (BoP contained within Cache of Winter after defeating Hodir in Ulduar 25, at a 59% drop rate)
Glove TokenGauntlets of the Wayward Vanquisher (BoP contained within Cache of Innovation after defeating Mimiron in Ulduar 25, at a 58% drop rate)
Leg TokenLegplates of the Wayward Vanquisher (BoP contained within Freya’s Gift after defeating Freya in Ulduar 25, at a 54% drop rate)

Note that the tier pieces may also be obtained in the following ways:
– Gloves and legs themselves have a small chance to drop from Emalon the Stormwatcher in Vault of Archavon 25.
– Head and Chest Tokens may be purchased for Justice Points in Dalaran.


The following items can be seen coupled with the Darkruned tier pieces in the image to the right. They are not exact matches for the tier set, but possible options to fill the gaps.

WaistMagnataur’s Girdle (BoE world drop within Northrend)
FeetBoots of the Funeral March (BoP contained within Cache of the Dreamwalker, after completing the heroic Valithria encounter in Icecrown Citadel 25, at a 19% drop rate)

During Cataclysm, the following pair of boots was re-coloured to become a perfect match for this set:
FeetBoots of the Underdweller (BoP drop from General Vezax in Ulduar 25)

  1. Note that Magnataur’s Girdle has the same model that Cobalt belt, which is craftable and more easy to come by.

  2. Dustin Yonts says:

    The bracers that you start out with as a death knight at level 55 seem to fit pretty well, if you haven’t deleted/vendored them.

  3. Wolfshanze says:

    For those that don’t feel like trying to put 25m Yogg-Saron (ick) together for a CHANCE at the token drop, a much simpler compromise would be to simply purchase the Wrathful Gladiator’s Dreadplate Shoulders from the old pvp armor vendor. While they are NOT T8 shoulders in any way, they are a very solid color and style match for the set and vastly easier to obtain then pugging 25m Yogg-Saron.

    Also, the Cobalt Belt from a Blacksmith is very easy to obtain for the belt option, and for boots, one other choice might be the season-10 Vicious Gladiator’s Warboots of Crueltym, a fairly decent match (not perfect but certainly works).

    • Wolfshanze says:

      Oh, and I meant to say that the Bladebreaker Gauntlets and Legplates of the Violet Champion, both available for a modest amount of JP in Dalaran are exact matches for the drops in Ulduar… combined with the Crown and Breastplate tokens of the Wayward Vanquisher (also in Dalaran for JP), if you’re okay with Wrathful Gladiator shoulders, you can get a complete set without setting foot in Ulduar.

  4. Av says:

    As of patch 4.3 Boots of the underdweller now match the tier set.

  5. BASS131 says:

    I was looking at the starting gear and found out that Acherus Knight’s Girdle will work for the set sense it is invisible and will make you look like you are wearing one of the belts from ulduar but in the right color. this can work for the 10 man set as well

  6. Kaloyan says:

    I use this set and currently for boots I use Matches pretty well.

  7. Skylaarr says:

    Willing to know how in the hell can I get those armors ?? There are requirements for it and I cannot get them. How/where can I be eligible to get them?

    • Noelani says:

      The article explains how to obtain this particular set in detail, but I’ll recap the main points.

      First of all, it’s Death Knight only and requires level 80.
      Secondly, the five main Tier items are purchased from vendors in Dalaran, using tokens which drop from bosses in the 25 player version of Ulduar.
