Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Plate

Head: Specialized Bio-Optic Killshades*
Shoulders: Templar Pauldrons/Mantle of the Horusath
Chest: Bulwark of the Ancient Kings
Wrists: Templar Bracers
Hands: Shattered Hand Gauntlets
Waist: Girdle of Many Blessings

Main-hand: Argent Resolve

This set is HARD!! There's a lot of luck involved with finding all the pieces for this set, but well worth it in my opinion. Most of the items are exactly the same as what the real Mekkatorque you see standing outside of Gnomeregan is wearing; the gloves, belt, and chest piece are coordinated to the best of my abilities. Those three items are, as far as I can tell, not currently in the game or are not available in the right colours.

Since this set does have a tabard, the chest piece could be skipped entirely and kept as whatever you are already wearing, provided the arms are bare or purple so it matches the rest of the set. Same goes for the bracers, only the very top shows so you can switch those to any other set of bracers that remain invisible or have a gold bit at the top.

Necessity is the first cousin of invention!

*I didn't realise but the blue killshades are for paladins only! If you are a gnome you can use the Reinforced Bio-Optic Killshades or a pair of Tankatronic Goggles which are similar to what an earlier version of Mekkatorque wore.

    1. Thankfully in this set it is very optional as it is covered by a tabard. The only reason it's included is because it provides arm coverage which you can't really see from the usual character height, but there are many other options which can be easily found in a quick search using MogIt.
