Breakfast Topic: What was your first armor set?

With the recent news that transmogrification will be making its way into the game come patch 4.3, I've found myself thinking back on the different sets of gear my main character has worn over the years. The first full set I collected was the mail armor from the Scarlet Monastery. I remember the boots dropping from one of the trash mobs the first time I cleared through the library with a PUG. I'm pretty sure it was the first item I had ever seen at the time that had a tooltip with the list of items in the set and the bonuses at the bottom. Once I won the roll, I knew I wouldn't rest until I had collected every piece!
After far too many Scarlet Monastery runs (and after my character had leveled too high to get much experience from running the dungeons), I finally completed the set. The sense of accomplishment was satisfying as I equipped the last piece and admired how sharp I looked -- especially compared to the dull, mismatched quest greens I had been wearing before. Lately I have been reliving the excitement (and frustration) I experienced back then because I can't help but attempt to pick up the armor set once again for use with transmogrification.

What was your first armor set? Did you keep it, or will you too recollect it for transmogrification?
