Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Elite Desecration
Death Knight Season 11 Elite

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 85
Source: Traded with Conquest Point purchases
Availability: No longer obtainable

How to get the set:

The pieces of the Death Knight Season 11 Elite Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Desecration were purchasable by trading in the corresponding items from the basic Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Desecration, but they required you to have either a rated battleground rating of 2200, or a personal and team rating 2200 in either the 3v3 or 5v5 arena brackets. Since S11 ended, this set is no longer available.

On top of the required rating, 9900 Conquest Points were needed to buy the basic set pieces to trade, broken down into 2200 each for the head, chest and legs, and 1650 each for shoulders and gloves. There are matching boots which have the same requirements as the above, but there are no perfectly matching belts or bracers. We’ve listed the boots along with a potential belt below.

Extras:

WaistTempered Saronite Belt (BoE crafted by Blacksmiths of 395+ skill)

FeetCataclysmic Gladiator’s Warboots of Cruelty (BoP vendor purchase for 1650 Conquest Points)

Acherus Knight’s Set

 


Acherus Knight’s Set

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 55
Source: Starter Gear
Availability: Death Knight only! Very, very easy to obtain (for DKs)

How to get the sets:

The Acherus Knight’s items are those that newly created Death Knight’s are wearing when they first enter the game. In other words, they comprise the Death Knight starter gear. They are soulbound, so no other classes may obtain these items.

Note that the belt is actually invisible, making it an excellent choice for other transmogrification sets where finding an appropriate matching belt is difficult.

If you have sold or destroyed the items from this set, you can obtain them again from Quartermaster Ozorg inside The Ebon Hold, Eastern Plaguelands.

Brutal Gladiator’s Dreadplate

 


Brutal Gladiator’s Dreadplate
Death Knight Season 4

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 70
Source: Honor Purchases
Availability: Death Knights only! Widely available and inexpensive

How to get the set:

The five items comprising the Death Knight Season 4 Brutal Gladiator’s Dreadplate are purchased from a variety of vendors, including the Legacy Armor Quartermasters in Orgrimmar and Stormwind.



Rather unusually, this set was retroactively added to the game, as Death Knights did not exist in the game during Season 4. This is the only example of a previous tier/season having an extra set for DKs added on at a later point.

The total cost of the 5-piece set is 805 Honor Points, broken down into 175 each for the head, chest and legs, and 140 each for shoulders and gloves.

The set is visually identical to the Warrior Brutal Gladiator’s Battlegear and as such shares the same matching non-set boots, bracers and belt, which cost a combined total of 370 Honor Points. This brings the total cost of the 8 piece outfit to 1175 Honor.

Extras:

WristsGuardian’s Plate Bracers (Purchasable for 90 Honor Points from Legacy Armor Quartermasters)
WaistGuardian’s Plate Belt (Purchasable for 140 Honor Points from Legacy Armor Quartermasters)
FeetGuardian’s Plate Greaves (Purchasable for 140 Honor Points from Legacy Armor Quartermasters)

Death Knight Season 11 Conquest Set (403/390)

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 85
Source: Honor Point purchases
Availability: Simple but costly to obtain

How to get the set:

The five items comprising the Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Desecration were introduced in Patch 4.3, and are currently available for purchase from Blazik Fireclaw in Dalaran Sewers.

The total cost of the 5-piece set is 4950 Honor Points, broken down into 1100 each for the head, chest and legs, and 825 each for shoulders and gloves. The matching bracers, boots and belt may be purchased from the same vendors as the rest of the set, but they also have a small chance to drop within Baradin Hold. With these three pieces included, the total cost for the outfit is 7225 Honor.

The set pieces were formerly of 403 item level and purchased with Conquest Points, but the item level and costs were reduced with Patch 5.0.4.

Extras:

The following items can also drop from Alizabal in Baradin Hold, but at a tiny drop chance (~3%):
WristsCataclysmic Gladiator’s Armplates of Proficiency (BoP vendor purchase for 625 Honor Points)
WaistCataclysmic Gladiator’s Girdle of Cruelty (BoP vendor purchase for 825 Honor Points)

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 85
Source: PvP
Availability: No longer obtainable

How to get the set:

The five items comprising the Death Knight Season 10 Elite Ruthless Gladiator’s Desecration are no longer available in-game, having been removed in Patch 4.3 when Season 11 was released.

The original boots are also unavailable and there has never been perfectly matching bracers or belts. Nevertheless, we’ve added extras to the set, should it ever be available again.

Ruthless Gladiator’s Desecration (371) & Ruthless Gladiator’s Desecration (377)
Death Knight Season 10 Conquest Set (384/371)/Season 11 Honor Set (390/377)

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 85
Source: Honor Point purchases
Availability: Simple to obtain, but time consuming

How to get the set:

This article is a combination of two seperate Death Knight PvP sets which share the same appearance, one of which is no longer available.

The first is the item level 371 Ruthless Gladiator’s Desecration, originally purchasable for conquest points during Season 10, the set had its item level lowered from 384 at the end of Cataclysm. The items are available for purchase with Honor Points, from Blazik Fireclaw in Dalaran sewers.

The total cost of the 5-piece set is 4950 Honor Points, broken down into 1100 each for the head, chest and legs, and 825 each for shoulders and gloves. The original bracers, boots and belt are purchased with Honor from the same vendors as the rest of the set, bringing the total for 8 pieces to 7225 honor.

The item level 390/377 Ruthless Gladiator’s Desecration was added during Season 11 as an Honor Point set, but is no longer available to players. It’s worth noting that this set had its item level reduced from 390 to 377 with Patch 5.0.4.

Also, somewhat confusingly, the 390/377 set is named Ruthless, in line with the previous Season 10 sets, but carries the ‘Season 11’ tag on it, as that was the time it was released.

Death Knight Rare PvP Set/Season 10 Honor Set (371)

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 85
Source: PvP
Availability: No longer obtainable

How to get the set:

This article is a combination of two seperate Death Knight PvP sets which share the same appearance.

The first is the item level 352 Rare Bloodthirsty Gladiator’s Desecration, originally purchasable for honor points during Season 9 and removed during Season 10. Its replacement as the honor purchased PvP set in Season 10 is the item level 371 Epic Vicious Gladiator’s Desecration, which has since also been removed from the game.

It’s worth noting that, somewhat confusingly, the epic set is named Vicious, in line with the previous Season 9 sets, but carries the ‘Season 10’ tag on it, as that was the time it was released.

The original boots, belt and bracers are also unavailable, but we’ve added them to the article anyway, should the sets ever be available again.
