If you don’t have 2/4 piece by Tuesday

My question is, WHERE are they calling those item tier(boots/bracer)? Is certainly not in game.

The players who have Ben targeting specific slots for weeks now for their set bonuses? The players who know that tier bonuses have been on those specific slots for over a decade? The players who read the blue post? Or the players that look at the piece of gear being created and see it does or doesn’t have a set bonus on it?

Because really this is getting ridiculous now.

You really aren’t capable of comprehending what’s right in front of your face, are you?

Ok that’s what a friend was asking about.

So you only need 1 of the 5 pieces to give the bonus.

So you could have the chest piece and the boots, waist, and wrists "of the fixed stars for the druid set and still get the 4 piece bonus because you had at least 1 of the pieces that gave the bonus.

So, you really think there will be zero support tickets then?

I got people in my guild that delete their gear frequently and have to do item restores.

OMG NO. :woman_facepalming:t4:

Can you seriously not read or see what it says here??

I don’t think they are that ignorant. I think they’re just trolling.

Arguing that the system is clear as day in a thread with a lot of confusion seems like the definition of trolling to me.


i have ben planning and capping conquest points so i can buy the pvp unranked gear and turn it in to a tier set.

ill have a full tier set in 4-5 weeks using unranked conquest gear.


This was linked above:

To me that reads like it’ll function like domination gear where only 2 pieces of all domination gear actually gave the bonus, but all pieces would count towards getting the bonus.

I mean they could simply put text like:

This item will result in tier set bonuses.
This item will not result in tier set bonuses.

But they’re adding in the other slots to the “of the Empyrean” tier set. Those would make sense to work with the bonus.

Apparently they’re new items all together, not items that currently exist.

The :clap: other :clap: slots :clap: don’t :clap: have :clap: set :clap: bonuses.

Are you purposely trying to act obtuse?

Tell me exactly what you see in this picture:

And tell me exactly what you understand from this sentence:

This is what I was thinking. I thought the 5 pieces that gave bonuses were common knowledge. Am I giving too much credit?

That’s not what people will see when they try to make a bracer, boot cloak or waist item.

What they’ll see is a tier piece with “of the Empyrean” at the end of it.

Various people have already told me they think this will work with the tier bonus.

You need at least one of those slots of tier gear to get the bonus. That’s what I understand. That’s what’s familiar given that’s how the last raid set bonus worked.

They do now. But the catalyst system now ADDS more pieces of tier to include cloak, boots, waist and wrists.

That’s not tier. That’s just adding to the “set”

Tier has always been the 5 pieces that gave bonuses.

To get a tier piece it needs to have a corresponding piece, if it doesn’t have one you wont create a tier piece. It does sound a bit ambiguous, but they clarify in the next line:

Is 100% clear that you need to use a shoulder, chest, gloves and legs to get a tier set. Again, is not like the vast majority of the player base even read that post, what matters is that the in game interface is clear on what you are creating and it certainly is.

But they specifically call it tier. Both in the blue post AND in game - the items now literally have the tier prefix/suffix on them.

I think this is the crux of the confusion.

They should just have never called the new slots tier in the first place. Tier pieces have always counted towards the system bonus. Seeing a piece of gear called “tier” by blizzard and labeled with the tier name is going to make a lot of people think it works with the bonus system.

The call out to activating the bonus will sound similar to domination gear, which is why people are currently saying they only need 1 of those pieces.

I think you just need 1 of those slots for the bonus. You can still use any of the other tier gear to hit the 2 and 4 piece thresholds.
