I just need the Lightforge Helm before I can complete my Dungeon Set 2. I'm so sick of running Scholo, though...And two questions and a statement:Q1) How the hell did I never know about that Item Set page?Q2) More importantly, why the hell isn't Blizzard keeping it up to date?S) Continue this column, I beg of you.

The lightforge helm was the first piece of the lightforge set that my pally acquired. Once while fighting Gandling, my pally got ported to the side chamber just before Gandling died, and the loot popped up with the lightforge helm. The excitement of seeing that helm drop made the fight through the spawns in the side chamber that much more exciting.However, that is one ugly helm when worn without any of the other set pieces. The purple 0.5 tier recolor was slightly better. I really should have hung onto that set..My fav original sets for pally: Judgement > Epic Pally PvP > the rest..Looking forward to the next installment!

I only ever got my Lightforge Gloves, Chest and Shoulders. I had terrible luck with the drops in Vanilla! :-(

It took an insane amount of runs through scholo to get my helm back in classic as well, but the ultimate was the chest piece. To this day I swear Blizzard has some code that detects whether you are alliance or horde and drops shammy or paladin pieces respectively.

If I recall correctly, the Lightforge Gauntlets used to be the worst piece of all the sets. Maybe only beaten out by the Devout Mantle. Maybe. A very, very long time ago, the Lightforge Gauntlets dropped from non other than Emperor Dagran Thaurissan. It was a very odd drop location. It was the only set piece that was located outside of Stratholme, Scholomance and Blackrock Spire. It was behind one of the nastiest events in-game at the time, the Lyceum. At the very end of a very long, very complex (but very cool) dungeon. Not many wanted to go to BRD, except to do their Onyxia key quest and that wasn't even close to Dagran. At least the priest's shoulders were in a dungeon everyone was already running! Nobody wanted to go with the poor pallys allll the way to the end of Blackrock Depths.Except the poor leatherworking hunters like me who were farming for their Black Dragonscale Leggings pattern. Gah.
