Armor Type: Mix of cloth and leather, except for the pants which are plate
Level Req.: 68
Source: The crucial items are BoE or BoP world/boss drops
Availability: Some pieces very hard to obtain. If you want perfection, you need to wear plate, have a 350 engineering skill and a lot of time
How to get the set:
This set requires both a trip to the Auction House, completing a low level quest and crafting an engineering belt. The recipe for the belt can be purchased from Findle Whistlesteam in Dalaran. The bracers are hard to get, because of the source being a very rare elite inside Gnomerigan. Consider finding another pair as it could take some time to complete that little detail.
There is an alternative to the chest piece in case you’re more up for questing your way in Outland. The chest is called Lifewarden’s Breastplate, it’s still leather and rewarded from the group quest Destroy Naberius! which you can find in Netherstorm at the end of a six part quest chain.
The two-handed mace is not shown on the picture above, but there’s a picture of an Ironforge Mountaineer, as they look in game, wielding one depicted at the very bottom of the post.
If you’re not an engineer, and can’t wear plate (and not a perfectionist), I’ve made a set that is easier to get, which you can find further down the page.
Head – Eldr’naan Hood (BoE Outland drop)
Chest – Fungus Shroud Armor (BoP boss drop in Maraudon from Meshlok the Harvester at 32%)
Wrists – Emissary Cuffs (BoP from the rare elite in Gnomerigan Dark Iron Ambassador at 37%)
Hands – Riding Gloves (Quest reward from The Everstill Bridge in Redridge Mountains)
Waist – Nigh Invulnerability Belt (Crafted by gnomish engineers at 350 skill)
Legs – Field Plate Leggings (BoE world drop)
Feet – Gossamer Boots (BoE world drop)
Two-handed Mace – Royal Mallet (BoE world drop)
Gun – Nesingwary Longrifle (BoE world drop)
Easier Ironforge Mountaineer Alternative
Armor Type: mix of cloth and leather
Level Req.: 41
Source: Most items are BoE or BoP world/boss drops
Availability: Easy to get
How to get the set:
This set is easier to get overall and available to more players. However it doesn’t match the real Mountaineers that well. Although as long as you have the chest, you’ve come a long way as the set wouldn’t look right without it and the green hood. Also notice that the level requirement went down a notch.
To the right, you can see an image of an Ironforge Mountaineer ingame.
Head – Conjurer’s Hood (BoE world drop)
Chest – Same
Wrists – Guardian Leather Bracers (Crafted by most leatherworkers at 195 skill)
Hands – Gossamer Gloves (BoE world drop)
Waist – Thick Cloth Belt (purchased from a Cloth Armor Merchant in any capital city )
Legs – Conjurer’s Breeches (BoE world drop)
Feet – Same
Two-handed Mace – Same
Gun – Same
