DO NOT upgrade your belt to tier set

you shouldn’t have to read up on everything in this game - it should be easy enough to design so that isn’t necessary - they had a stupid quest that sends people there, how hard it is to do something like that guy suggested (a pop up saying will not create tier pieces).

There is literally a pop up showing you what the item is gonna transform into, it doesn’t get easier than that.

I guess some people really can’t use basic logic.


it is easy if you know what it should look like and in hindsight, not necessarily the first time around.

I stand corrected.

Still - this all assumes you read the forums and or wow guides (wowhead/mmo-champion) regularly.

Good thing you don’t have to. The game tells you exactly what you’re going to get. How hard is it to stop and think for a second before pushing the button?

This is a quote.

Fair enough.

I do agree there is a bit of oversight in both directions for what they use the “Are you SUUUUUURE?” pop-up in game for.

Wanna make this tier piece in a brand new system that debuted literally today? I’m sure you understand the functionality. Go for it!

WAIT!!! Are you absolutely POSITIVE you want to delete this useless unique item that the game wouldn’t allow you to loot because you already have it so we mailed it to you and now you can’t check your mail because you already have one so you have to delete the item in your bags, typing DELETE into a chat box to get rid of it so you can check your mail and receive the new one?

I don’t think I should have to ‘think’ about what they are intending to do in a system. I am not paying them to figure out their bad design. In any case, I didn’t do this because I came back to the blue post and wrote down the tier pieces but when a bunch of people made the same mistake it tells me design problem.

It’s bad design to show you exactly the item you’ll be getting? Wow, do you need someone to hold your hand and turn on the pc for you too?

you can ignore reality all you want but there is at least 2 threads on this issue already and dozens of people who made this mistake.

They posted a fair warning about it.

Although, not everyone reads forums. I do think there should be a warning message pop up when you try a mog only slot that says something like: “This slot does not count towards tier set bonus only legs, helm, chest, gloves, and shoulders do” yada yada

Live and learn. Don’t make the same mistake twice and get over it. I don’t even recall bracers/belt/boots ever givin’ tier bonuses outside TBC.

Considering people couldn’t read that their item conversion was not going to give them tier set bonus, I doubt that this would’ve helped. What Blizzard really needed to do was draw a picture or something. Words are hard for some people.

Yea, and those people were told they wouldn’t be getting a set bonus. I have zero sympathy for people with that little attention to detail…they’re dangerous, but that’s another discussion.

Personally not using it until after raid, my tier luck is so bad… I would get 1 piece and the same piece i crafted would drop for me…smh

And they will have to live with their mistake.

I am not big on intolerant people and that is a huge problem as well

Same thing happened to me using bracers. My 4th set did not get activated.

Figured it is a bug and lodged a ticket.

So I certainly don’t think this is a “big” issue…it is just an odd ux choice that your tier creation tool can create non-tier pieces.

Is there are large portion of players complaining that they aren’t getting the mogs fast enough?

I validated in PTR that if you choose a non-tier bonus piece the highlighted output does not show the set bonus, whereas a proper bonus piece will show the bonus… so there is definitely feedback in the game ui itself if you pay attention. This is a good thing.

Still though, back to my original point, it is an odd choice to allow your tier converter to allow non set bonus pieces…especially from the get-go. Blizz has no problem time-gating content, maybe allowing non-set-bonus pieces should have been gated a few more weeks.
