Exalted Set


Exalted Set

Armor Type: Plate
Level Req.: 60 for Exalted pieces, 80 with extras
Source: BoE world drops
Availability: Very time consuming to gather

How to get the set:
Exalted items are BoE world drops, although most specifically from the Ruins and Temple of Ahn’Qiraj. Due to their random drop nature, checking the Auction House frequently is a good option for finding them. However, it is feasible to farm the AQs as much as possible in hope of a drop or two.

The Exalted set has a pair of perfectly fitting shoulderplates listed in the ‘Alternatives’ section below. However, there is also a stunning pair of pauldrons from Black Temple, listed under ‘Extras’. Both have appropriate colourations and appearances, so either may be used.

ChestExalted Harness
WristsExalted Armsplints
GlovesExalted Gauntlets

ShouldersPauldrons of Abyssal Fury (BoP drop from Supremus in Black Temple, at an 18% drop rate)
One-Handed SwordTorment of the Banished (BoP drop from Thaddius in Naxxramas 10, at a 19% drop rate)
ShieldDraconian Deflector (BoP drop from General Drakkisath in Upper Blackrock Spire, at a 23% drop rate)


ShouldersExalted Epaulets (BoE world drop)


Note: The headpiece for this set was left out for aesthetic reasons, but if you are interested, here is a link to it.

    It’s worth noting that some of the pieces from this set are part of the gear that Kor’kron NPCs wear, so they’ve been selling for thousands and thousands of gold on Horde AHs on RP realms.

  2. […] I felt had potential to draw interest from players.  I started with plate sets first. Glorious, Exalted, Hyperion, Overlord, Vanguard, Heavy Lamellar and Gothic Plate to name a […]

    A few recommendations:

    I haven’t seen Crown of Empowered Fate


    mentioned as a helm choice, which is a shame as I think it looks great with the set. It drops off the Reliquary of Souls in BT, which even with the nerfs to make it soloable can be a bit of a pain.

    If you don’t like the bare-skin look, Dark Silk Shirt


    looks pretty good underneath the harness. You have a little bit of red showing at the collar and waist, but if you’re stuck with 1h axes you can go with the aforementioned Sun-Forged Cleaver, which ties the red together and is easily farmable since it’s off first boss in normal MGT.

    If you want to tie in the flash of red further, Recovered Scarlet Onslaught Cape


    is available for purchase from a JP vendor in Dalaran. Similar patterns exist but this version is probably the most reliable since you only need a small quantity of JP to obtain it.

    For swords, I prefer Muramasa


    from Entropius in Sunwell, the ornate gold on the sword matches the armor quite nicely, and the green glow ties in with the aforementioned Antonidas’ Aegis out of Hyjal.

    In terms of farming, it took forever for the harness to drop. I did it at 85 with a night elf druid and using shadowmeld to reset Rejaxx. A level 90 character will kill things faster but unless your aggro drop cooldown is way below 2 minutes (i.e. you’re a Hunter) you’re probably better off killing things more slowly to line up with the 2 min cd than running out every time to reset with Rejaxx knocking you around.

    A few other options:

    The Shadow-Pan replica helmet doesn’t quite match the texture of the exalted set, but still manages to look pretty good IMO. The little gold horns at the top and the black band are what sells it I think.

    The handle on the raid finder version of Elegion, the Fanged Crescent ties in with the gold theme. The heroic version has a stronger gold glow on the blade but I’m not sure if it totally matches the set.

    for the person that asked for a 1h axe i found this to match pretty well out of what i found without going for a puny axe http://www.wowhead.com/item=34699#dropped-by

  5. PizzaMan says:

    I found that Noble Plate Pauldrons are a suitable alternative for the shoulders.


    Easily obtained through a small questline in Terrokar Forest.

  6. Faerrun says:

    Anyone have a good idea for 1H axes to use with this set? Just missing the Harness and to farm the shield, but I need something for my axe!

  7. Brobabooey says:

    I can’t believe that nobody here has mentioned using “Blade of Savagery” (One-handed sword from Mother Sharaz in Black Temple- http://www.wowhead.com/item=32369) for dual-wielders who use this transmog set.

  8. Arrow says:

    I’m working on this set for a DK wielding two 1-handed swords. I think the elegance of Silent Fang (http://www.wowhead.com/item=13953). Added bonus is that it’s actually pretty easy to get (you need two!).

    The ‘reset Rajaxx’ and ‘respawning Gladiator’ tips were helpful, about halfway through the set now.

  9. Diego says:

    Its “easy” to farm. I was doing the rajaxx trash resset and discovered a interesting tatic, skip all rajaxx trash and kill the Qiraji Gladiator its respaw instant just stay at gate farming. I killed about 3000 found 3 heads 4 waist 4 boots 3 shoulders 2 hands no legs or chest :(

  10. Pariel says:

    Hi ! i was wondering about the recolour of this set
    “Brutish set Plate” http://www.wowhead.com/transmog-set=316
    and going to use “Wyrmslayer Spaulders” & “Faceplate of the Impenetrable”
    I love that helm and found a nice set for it! <3 !!!
    But i need some "decent" farming spots, i've tried Dire maul and got Bracers, boots, legs, once so far, still need Chest, belt and Gloves :( (farming it before 4.3 with no luck :S).
    Any help will be appreciated! Thx.

  11. Kaiserin says:

    Boots of the Ancient-Killer, Horde only Blades Edge Mountains quest net an identical pair of boots (http://www.wowhead.com/item=31488).

  12. Vel says:

    Been farming this set for quite a while. Been lucky and got legs from AH and the chest dropped for me today!

    As for offpieces if you’re unlucky with exalted drops;
    Belt: http://www.wowhead.com/item=31690
    Gloves: http://www.wowhead.com/item=30375 (Have to be Scryer) or http://www.wowhead.com/item=31180

    • Vel says:

      Finally got all the offpieces I need, except for boots. Decided to transmog anyway and picked up http://www.wowhead.com/item=51363 until I get my hands on the Exalted boots, as I had sadly already completed the quest in Blade’s Edge and those boots were lost (Even ticketed a helpful GM about recovering them, sadly lost forever)

      Not a perfect match, but it’s alright.

  13. I am also farming this set, only need the harness left! Instead of the black temple pauldrons I went with the Noble plate Pauldrons- http://www.wowhead.com/item=31819 which match the set very well

    since I play a fury warrior I use 2h weapons for wielding so the weapons I also got to match this set as well are

    Fras Siabi Cigar cutter- http://www.wowhead.com/item=65973
    Untamed Blade- http://www.wowhead.com/item=19334
    Halaani Hammer- http://www.wowhead.com/item=25141

    All 3 different types, Axe, sword and mace. I also dawn a red vicious glad cloak’s with this set to compliment the red on the weapons!

    Happy hunting everyone

    • Noelani says:

      Hey there, congratulations with your progress so far and good luck getting the chestpiece. Good choices of weapons too!

      How’ve you been farming the set and how long has it take so far? Grinding the trash in the two AQs? I’ve got a few pieces myself but they have all been AH purchased.

      • Oh man I would say maybe 2, 3 months of grinding AQ. my bags are filled with so many scarabs and idols I just leave them in there to make looting corpses easier.

        Now the harness according to wow head says it only drops off the generals and majors from rajaxx and I’ve killed them all and then wipe on rajaxx to reset and try again to see if its true. So far nothing yet. For the time being as a place holder I got this http://www.wowhead.com/item=23513 chest for now until harness drops.

        Kinda same color scheme, not the same but close enough!

      • Noelani says:

        It’s a tough grind indeed, I’ve almost completed the Magnificent and Grand sets dropping within AQ, but Exalted items remain elusive. Keep it up, the harness will be yours one day!

      • Madmouse says:

        Requres pre-cata armorsmith spec

      • oh and i changed my mind again for I am forever on moggit addon or wow model viewer but a better breastplate holder until I get the harness was this

        http://www.wowhead.com/item=55254 which also a duplicate of this http://www.wowhead.com/item=57856

        It actually blends in well with the other exalted pieces quite well!

      • Noelani says:

        I finally completed the set today, getting lucky with the shoulders on the Auction House for 250g. I also purchased the belt and legs on the AH a long while ago, but the rest I farmed up.

        For the harness I went with the “clear Rajaxx trash and reset” tactic. It took a long while, 7 or so hours just doing that, but I was able to reset it very quickly. I did the grinding on my night elf druid, shadowmelding to reset Rajaxx as he ran towards me, which made the whole process considerably more tollerable (and cheaper) than wiping each time to reset!

  14. Sentinel Ark says:

    I am farming this set myself – still missing the belt, boots and gloves. These items seem to only drop in AQ20/40 and will be very time-consuming to gather. If you get lucky, you may even be able to get one piece of this set in the Auction House.

    If I may recommend
    – Antonidas’ Aegis of Rapt Concentration (http://www.wowhead.com/item=30909) fits with the coloration of this set. It drops from Archimonde in Battle for Hyjal.
    – Scryer’s Tabard (http://www.wowhead.com/item=31780) also fits the coloration very well.

    Keep up the great work! :)
