Crystalforge Sets


Crystalforge Sets
Paladin Tier 5

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 70
Source: BoP token purchases and boss drops from Outland raids
Availability: Time consuming to farm and may require assistance

How to get the set:
There are three visually identical Crystalforge sets in total, one for each paladin spec:
ProtectionCrystalforge Armor
RetributionCrystalforge Battlegear
HolyCrystalforge Raiment

The five items comprising each set are purchased using tokens which drop from Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep. In addition to the tier pieces, there are also matching non-set boots and a belt, which are listed in the ‘Extras’ section below.

Gathering some of these items may require assistance, depending on your level and gear.

The following list highlights the source of each tier token, which may used to buy the related armor pieces from Kelara if you are Aldor affiliated and Veynna Dawnstar for Scryers. If you are only interested in appearance, it doesn’t matter which armor set you choose, as they all look identical and are purchased from the same tokens anyway.

Head TokenHelm of the Vanquished Champion (BoP drop from Lady Vashj in Serpentshrine Cavern, at a 62% drop rate)

    Another weapon that goes well with this set is 25 Man Regular Justicebringer from ToC. This is alliance only though

  2. Tare says:

    The T3 bracers, Redemption Wristguards, work decently with this set. That is to say, if you were able to get them back in the day, or catch them on the Black Market.

    On my Paladin I’m going to use the chest and legs from the Revenant Set, which is a BoE World Drop set, together with the cloak [Cloak of Crimson Snow] (Crafted by Tailorers 405+). Here’s some weapons that I looked up that I feel fit in one way or another with the set(s)!

    Two-Handed Mace: [Hammer of the Naaru] (Gruul’s Lair from High King Maulgar, 18% drop chance)

    One-Handed Mace: [Scepter of Power] (Halls of Origination from Setesh, 28% drop chance)

    Two-Handed Axe: [Skyforged Greataxe] (Crafted by Blacksmithing 340+)

    One-Handed Axe: [Stellaris] (The Machanar, from Nethermancer Sepethrea, 17% drop chance)

    Two-Handed Sword: [Shaarde the Greater] (Mana-Tombs from Tavarok, 13% drop chance)

    One-Handed Sword: [Bloodmaw Magus-Blade] (Gruul’s Lair from Gruul the Dragonkiller, 16% drop chance)

    Shield: [Aldori Legacy Defender] (Gruul’s Lair from Gruul the Dragonkiller, 15% drop chance)

    Shield: [Shield of Impenetrable Darkness] (Karazhan from Nightbane, 15% drop chance)

    Sorry for not putting them as links, I don’t know how to do that, as of yet. Anyways, have a good day and happy mog hunting!

    If your looking for a Two handed sword to match, the Claymore of the Prophet matches the set perfectly going with the hammer and shield and the two handed hammer Chad mentioned above. It uses the same floating purple crystals of the Dranei.

  5. razok says:

    you can use the replica warrior leggings from DMF they dont match perfect but best option in the game atm for the recolored pally t5 look alike

    *Admin Edit: Merged two comments together ~ Noelani*

  6. Anders says:

    put on a white shirt under and the whole thing looks alot better

  7. Jacqueline says:

    Is there a light purple or lavender cloak that might make a nice addition to this set?

  8. Eronomar says:

    I just realized that the gold /white recolor matches well with the replica legplates and boots of valor surprisingly well

  9. xRazx says:

    It is still possible to collect the Merciless Gladiators Version of this Gear Set, you can trade in either T5 or T6 Tokens for the main parts (Helm, Shoulders, Chest, Gloves, Pants) and purchase the off sets using Justice Points or trading in the T6 Bracer, Belt, and Boot Tokens.

    This can all be found at the Isle of Quel’Danas in the top part of the Sun Reach’s Armory.

  10. Alintia says:

    I am using 2H “The Torch of the Damned” with this set, it looks amazing.

  11. Sektor says:

    Well I was in Shattrath not to long ago and saw a NPC wearing the recolor leggings so the skin exists, but looks like we can not get it.

  12. Anonymous says:

    T4 legs matches rather well with the recolor of paladin T5

    • Sektor says:

      T4 legs to me just don’t look right. Its the gold it is just to dull. Now I did find out why you can’t get Stromgarde’s Hope any more It dropped in Old ZA. Using WoW model viewer looked for a belt and pants to go with them with very little luck. When I decided to look for a chest too. I found that the T11 heroic pally chest and pants(also can use the heal plate in heroic mode) went really well with those shoulders, helm and gloves. I also found boots you can get Blue’s Greaves of the Righteous Guardian. I really wish they give us some recolored pants to match but I doubt it will happen.

  13. mcmagi says:

    It appears there are no corresponding bracers for this set.

  14. Sektor says:

    I found a bit of pally T5 recolor just cant seem to find the pants
    Brighthelm of Justice , Pauldrons of the Argent Sentinel, Glowing Breastplate of Truth, Girdle of Stromgarde’s Hope(which seem to not be in the game anymore not sure why) and Glorious Gauntlets of Crestfall.

    • Noelani says:

      We’ve had the equipment file for the recolour set kicking around in our to-do pile for months, but the lack of legs is a major irritation. That said, Ironyca was working on finding a suitable pants replacement a couple of days ago, so perhaps we’ll have a relevant article up soon.

  15. Chad says:

    For those interested in completing a set with matching Weapons as well, consider farming Gruul for the Aldori Legacy Defender shield and Kazrogal from CoT: Hyjal Summit for the Hammer of Atonement mace.

  16. Anonymous says:

    you can also get “Belt of the Guardian” crafted as well. Pattern drops in TK/SSC
