Northrend Dark Plate


Northrend Dark Plate

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 80
Source: Instance drops/Vendors/Crafted
Availability: May take time to complete, but not overly challenging

How to get the sets:

This outfit is a visual copy of one of the Death Knight starting zone sets, the Saronite War Plate, as we have called it. However, the pieces here are not class specific, so any plate wearers can adopt this Death Knight look.

There are a huge number of items matching the original set, with some slots having as many as five possible item options. As such, the set shouldn’t be overly challenging to complete, although it may take a few runs of Naxxramas 10, where many of the items drop.

    Thanks a lot for this, it’s one of my favorite plate sets (even though it’s very overused), and I had no idea there was a non-class specific version of it. Time to start farming!

    Also a good set of legs for the set, for those that are as unlucky as I am with the drops in the raid zones.
