Scarlet Crusader

 


Scarlet Crusader


Armor Type: Mail
Level Req.: 39
Source: BoP and BoE drops, primarily within one instance
Availability: No longer obtainable


How to get the set:
The Scarlet Crusader set is a mix of BoE and BoP items, all of which were from Scarlet Monastery. However, the Scarlet items are no longer obtainable, following the changes made to Scarlet Monastery in Patch 5.0.4. As such, the information presented below is outdated.

The BoE green items are rather common and can regularly be picked up on the Auction House at a reasonable rate. The BoP drops are also easily farmable as they have high drop chances within Scarlet Monastery. However, there are a few rare quality BoE drops which are very hard to get, the Chestpiece and the weapon. You may be able to pick them up on the Auction House occasionally.

The boots that belong to this set are extremely rare. Scarlet Boots are a BoE drop from 22 different humanoids in Scarlet Monastery Cathedral, at a 0% drop chance. This doesn’t mean that the item never drops, it’s just so rare that it’s drop rate is closer to 0 than 0.1% of all kills. This is why we chose another set of boots, that actually also fit the pants better.

Your best bet for completing the set is to keep a close eye on the AH and farm SM as much as you can!

Head – Raging Berserker’s Helm (BoP from Herod in Scarlet Monastery Armory)
Shoulders – Herod’s Shoulder (BoP from Herod in Scarlet Monastery Armory)
Chest – Scarlet Chestpiece (BoE drop from Scarlet Champions in Scarlet Monastery Cathedral)
Tabard – Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade (BoP from Scarlet Trainees in Scarlet Monastery Armory, after you’ve killed Herod)
Wrists – Scarlet Wristguards (BoE drop from Scarlet Guardsmen and Scarlet Protectors in Scarlet Monastery Armory)
Hands – Raider’s Gauntlets (BoE world drop from level 16-20 creatures)
Waist – Scarlet Belt (BoE drop from Scarlet Defenders and Scarlet Myrmidons in Scarlet Monastery Armory and Cathedral)
Legs – Scarlet Leggings (BoP drop from Herod, in SM Armory, and Scarlet Commander Mograine in SM Cathedral)
Feet – Raider’s Boots (BoE world drop from level 14-21 creatures)

Weapon – Dreamslayer (A BoE from all creatures in Scarlet Monastery, with a very low drop chance)
Shield – Aegis of the Scarlet Commander (A BoP from Scarlet Commander Mograine in SM Cathedral)

Note:
The Scarlet Set does have its own pair of gloves, Scarlet Gauntlets, a BoE drop from Scarlet Centurions in SM Cathedral.
However, we chose to put our Scarlet Crusader in Raider’s Gauntlets, as we felt that they matched the overall appearance of the set better than the Scarlet Gauntlets, in particular matching the Scarlet Leggings, as with the boots.

    If someone on EU Servers need http://www.wowhead.com/item=10332 i have a pair for sale. Found them on my first Classic Account :)

  2. Barunita says:

    The tabard actual dropped for me during spring 2014. From the Armsmaster encounter normal. Means its still obtainable.

  3. Calor says:

    You can get the set the same way :P its same difficulty readded into the game. Herod was taking outa the game bc he died or something into the lore

  4. Alixstar says:

    I reckon this set could still be available in the game, though perhaps slightly different looking.

    I was thinking, what if the heirlooms for the head and shoulders were used, the full Raider’s set, the tabard when it becomes available again (it’s been confirmed it’ll return in a future patch), and Bloodforged Shield can be used since it looks exactly like the old shield.

    Just adding ideas :)

      You can get a Set just like this but heres what you need
      The Herod Helm and Shoulders or the Loom version of them, there is a pair of shoulders that drop in SM like Herods but doesn’t say herod on them.

      Go to shat with maybe 2k in JP there will be some inferno forged mail gear you can buy, Chest, Hands, Legs, and Feet. now the tabard well thats gone if you managed to obtain the tabard before it was unobtainable grats your like me of the few who kept it and glad they never got rid of it

    Looking for some 1handed axes for the scarlet set.

    • Relinkusore says:

      Still Looking for 1 hand ax to match.. I also found a pair of gloves in Shat that match the raider ones for 104 JP

  6. geonica says:

    is there a 2 handed weapon you could find, hopfully tansmog

  7. Khyddin says:

    I actually got the boots first, and they’re not that bad. I’m having more trouble getting the belt, chest and gloves to drop from any of them.

  8. Dylan Flowers says:

    I’ve been having trouble choosing a good weapon, but I have created a decent plate Scarlet set for plate wearers.

    I was just wondering if there was a way to make a Scarlet Myrmidon’s set, I would really like to be able to make my warrior into a scarlet Myrmidon.

  10. Anonymous says:

    ragesteel shoulders instead of herods is a lot better, and instead of dreamslayer broadaxe of the horde look a lot better and Standard Issue Shield look cool too!

  11. Judikael says:

    Another shield that will work is the Standard Issue Shield from the Scarlet Bodyguards in Tirisfal Glades.
