Buy it and craft it!
The recipe, Plans: Frostguard was a drop from a rare mob, but these days it can be purchased from a vendor too. This makes getting it a lot easier than it was before.
Frostguard itself is a level 58 one handed sword. One does not use it for leveling purposes though! It has better than average looks and is quite valuable in the eyes of any sword user who wants to do some transmogging.
The sword sells for 500-3000 wow gold most of the time, but there are exceptions. See if there's anyone selling it on your realm. If not, you're free to ask anything for it! Just don't forget to advertise it on the trade chat, and mention the snowy glow effect on it that stays even after transmogging. Ice magi love it!
The recipe is sold by Daleohm in Winterspring. It costs 8 gold to learn and requires quite a few classic trade goods when crafted. Here's a list of them. Some of them are harder to obtain and might have a heavy price tag if purchased from the auction house. If you have the profesions, it's a lot cheaper to craft the materials yourself!
- Arcanite Bar x 18
- Blue Sapphire x 8
- Azerothian Diamond x 8
- Essence of Water x 4
- Enchanted Leather x 4
- Dense Grinding Stone x 2
Note that the plans are BOE, so you can sell it in the auction house if you can't craft it. Though there is more people selling plans than the craftables most of the time, so expect less gold that way!
Thanks to Timich, the level 85 healing cat from The Sha'tar for this great tip!
