This is one of many armor quests for younglings. This one originates with Rueben (near Lewis Reldnok), in the Paladin's guildhall of Ak'Anon, and results in lore (other than bracer) no drop armor that is PAL/GNM only. It is gold in color when worn. Please note that while the bracers are not lore, the bracer materials often are, so make your first bracer before you get the parts for a second one
You say, 'Hail, Rueben Reldnok'
Rueben Reldnok says 'Greetings _____! I am Rueben, first Paladin of the Deep Muses. When I was just a young lad I journeyed to Kaladim, the home of our cousins the Dwarves. At the Temple of the Duke of Below I studied the ways of a Paladin of our creator Brell Serilis. I have returned to Ak'Anon to train interested young gnomes the ways I have mastered so that we may defend Ak'Anon and Brells disciples everywhere from the threats that would see us destroyed. If you are a Paladin of the Deep Muses I have some [armor quests] for you to complete.'
You say, 'what armor quests?'
Rueben Reldnok says 'I have armor quests that I present to young gnomish paladins when they are ready to venture out into the Mountains of Steamfont and begin their training. Are you a gnome that is [ready for training]?'

I will present you with a Tinkerers Mail Assembly Kit that you will use to collect all different kinds of items from Ak'anon and from the Steamfont Mountaints.

You say, 'what armor recipes?'
Rueben Reldnok says 'I have all the armor recipes and molds that you will need to get started all you must do is simply tell me what armor piece you [want to craft]. I can provide you with the recipes and molds for Deep Muses [Helms], [Bracers], [Armguards], [Boots], [Greaves], [Gauntlets] and [Breastplates]. I must recommend that you attempt to gather the items for your breastplate last because the components required for it are the most difficult to collect.'

Rueben Reldnok says 'Ok I will need 4 things to construct this blade. Bring me a Finished Sheet of Metal, a Kobold Backbone, Preserved Rat Pelt and 1 Bottle of Clockwork Oil that was stolen from me from some renegade clockworks not too long ago. Once I have these items I can make you a sword worthy of Brells finest heroes.'
