Raid Tier 6 Set Information

The Tier 6 raid set is yet another raid set gained by collecting "tokens" and turning them in to vendors in exchange for the armor pieces. The "tokens" are really just statless pieces of armor. You can trade them in for the armor set pieces from the vendors in the Caverns of Time or Black Temple Area.

In exactly the same way as the Tier 4 and 5 sets, Tier 6 gives most classes at least two options of gear based on class sub-type. For example: Healing Priest and Shadow Priest.


"Token" Drop Location

The tokens required for the tier 6 armor set drop from various bosses in The Battle of Mount Hyjal (25 man) and The Black Temple (25 man) as shown below. When the "token" armor drops it will display 3 classes that can use that "token". It can then be turned in by any of those classes for any armor option for that slot as shown in the Armor Set Options table.

Boss : Location
Item Slot
Azgalor : The Battle of Mount Hyjal
Hands
Archimonde : The Battle of Mount Hyjal
Head
Mother Shahraz : The Black Temple
Shoulders
Illidari Council : The Black Temple
Legs
Illidan Stormrage : The Black Temple
Chest

Armor Set Options

The tier 6 sets offer several options depending on your class and your talent build. Make sure you select the right one for each piece so that you can get the set bonuses. You can collect multiple sets if you which, but given the difficulty and the demand, don't expect to get your second pieces until everyone in your guild has their first set complete.
