Tier 16 Sets

Patch 5.4 introduced the final raid tier for Mists of Pandaria, the Siege of Orgrimmar, and with it came a whole new range of Tier armor. This article provides an overview of the Tier 16 sets.

Siege of Orgrimmar brought with it a brand new raid mode – Flexible. Flex raids have their own level of tier armor, but share a visual appearance with Normal mode sets. As such, there are still three colourations for each classes’ tier armor, as with all raid tiers since Dragon Soul.

We also have an overview article for Tier 16 Lookalike Sets, which are not class specific.

WoWRoleplayGear Update

Hi everybody!

I’m very sorry that there hasn’t been much in the way of new content on WoWRoleplayGear lately, especially at such a significant time for the WoW community with the release of WoD. I’ve had quite a change in real life circumstances, including a new home and a new job, which means that I’ve had to focus my efforts away from Warcraft lately.

I’d also like to apologise for the downtime on the site in early November, a hosting issue that was sadly out of my hands, but which should now be fully resolved.

I aim to update the site to feature all new WoD sets at some point, and will have more MoP articles in the nearer future, but right now I still need a little more time to settle with my new location and employment. The website will remain online (fingers crossed for no more hosting problems), and comments will continue to be accepted and read.

Thanks to everybody who has been browsing the site over the years. I hope to be back in full swing with new content sooner rather than later! In the meantime, enjoy Warlords of Draenor!

Tier 16 Lookalike Sets

There are lookalike sets available from Siege of Orgrimmar which correspond to each of the thirty-three Tier 16 sets. They are precise visual copies of the tier sets, but without the class restrictions.

Twenty-five of the sets are complete, with matching items available for each armor slot. Eight sets (all mage, all priest and two druid) are missing a matching leg item, but are otherwise complete.

Sadly, some of the Raid Finder and Flexible copies can be particularly difficult or impossible for certain classes/specs to obtain, despite the lack of class restriction, due to the LFR/Flex loot systems. This problem doesn’t occur with Normal or Heroic loot, as that is handled by players and not the automated looting system.

Tier 15 Lookalikes

Back in March we published an overview article for all of the Tier 15 Sets introduced with Patch 5.2 and the Throne of Thunder. In this post we highlight the lookalikes for all of those Tier sets, which are available as a combination of Throne of Thunder drops, vendor purchases and crafted items.

There are complete lookalikes for all of the sets, with the exception of the Druid Tiers, which lack a headpiece. There are also a few variations where, for example, a Tier robe model becomes a tunic in the lookalike, as is the case with Shaman sets. However, the majority of these sets are perfect visual copies of the Tiers.
