Saltstone Plate

Hanging with my Onyxian Whelpling in Mount Hyjal

 Shoulders- Backbreaker Spaulders (Raid Finder) These should be relatively easy to acquire as DPS, I have no clue how I ended up with them as a healer. I find that both the Raid Finder Death Knight T13 and the linked shoulders work best compared to the normal and heroic versions.
Chest- Saltstone Surcoat or Carapace of Anub'shiah The latter will be the easiest considering the hideously low drop rate of anything Saltstone. The Carapace of Anub'shiah is a dropped by Anub'shiah in Blackrock Depths. You may have to do this event several times for it to drop because of the random bosses, but its a hell of a lot easier than the alternatives. 
Gloves- Saltstone Gauntlets Aside from the Tyrant recolor (which will in no way match) there is only one way to acquire these. FARM. The easiest place I found to farm there were off of the Den Whompers (elite ogres) in Thousand Needles. They are easy to kill at 85 and spawn almost immediately, there should always be one alive and ready to be killed for phat lootz. 
Belt- Ideally you'd want a pretty belt. Currently I have yet to find a pretty for that slot. If you want the Saltstone Belt, farm the same as you would the gloves.
Pants- Saltstone Legplates or Cenarion Thicket Legplates I recommend doing the latter to acquire these legs if possible. They are a quest reward from Letting Earthbinder Tavgren Know (A)/Letting Earthbinder Tavgren Know (H). If you've been a a busy beaver and have completed this quest you will have to farm Salstone Legplates.
Boots- Saltstone Sabatons Farm the ogres mentioned above.
Shield Equipped
Main Hand weapon equipped

Main Hand- Morningstar of Heroic Will (Normal) Drops from the Lesser Cache of the Aspects (Ultraxion Kill) in Dragon Soul. Only out of pure luck was I able to pick up this bad boy. If your guild has normal Dragon Soul on farm you may run into this, hopefully you are lucky and no one will need it for upgrades. Alternatively, if you are AMAZINGLY lucky to kill Ultraxion on Heroic difficulty Morningstar of Heroic Will (Heroic) would be an even better match.
Offhand- Dragonheart Flameshield This is my little pride and joy at the moment. Not only is this shield gorgeous, it breathes fire too! This beauty drops from Nightbane in Karazhan, which is easily soloable by a level 85 plate wearer. In order to kill Nightbane you must do a series of quests to gain the ability to summon him*. The quest sequence starts out in front of Karazhan and involves several quests inside of Karazhan.
Cloak- Drape of Fiery Dreams Only out of modesty did I decide to enable my cloak. I randomly found this cloak on the Auction House and thought it matched well with this set. There are several other cloaks of the same pattern (but different lengths) that are available either by drops or quests.
* Alternatively you can bring someone else along that already has the ability to summon him.
