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.

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.

Heroic Shattered Vale Copy

 


Heroic Shattered Vale Copy
Tier 16 Druid Lookalike

Armor Type: Leather
Level Req.: 90
Source: Raid drops
Availability: Time consuming to gather
3D Model: Wowhead Link

How to get the set:

This outfit is a non-class-specific visual copy of the item level 566 Druid T16 sets, the Armor/Battlegear/Regalia/Vestments of the Shattered Vale. The pieces are obtained as boss drops from Heroic mode Siege of Orgrimmar.

There are also Warforged versions of these items available, from the same sources, which are visually identical but six item levels higher.

Note that there are no matching legs for this set, aside from the actual druid tier legs. As such, monks and rogues cannot complete this look. The chestpiece for this set is a tunic, so it would not cover the missing leg item. The proper tier kilt is depicted in the image above – see our Heroic Shattered Vale Sets article for details.

There are multiple options for several of the armor slots, and all lookalikes after the first one for each slot are listed in the “Alternatives” section.

Shattered Vale Copy

 


Shattered Vale Copy
Tier 16 Druid Lookalike

Armor Type: Leather
Level Req.: 90
Source: Raid drops
Availability: Time consuming to gather
3D Model: Wowhead Link

How to get the set:

This outfit is a non-class-specific visual copy of the item level 566 Druid T16 sets, the Armor/Battlegear/Regalia/Vestments of the Shattered Vale. The pieces are obtained as boss drops from Flexible and Normal modes of Siege of Orgrimmar.

There are also Warforged versions of these items available, from the same sources, which are visually identical but six item levels higher.

Note that the matching legs from this set can only be obtained from Ordos – there are none available in flexible or normal modes, aside from the druid tier kilts themselves. The chestpiece from Ordos uses a robe model, whereas the chests from the Paragons of the Klaxxi are tunics.

It’s also important to consider that Rogues will never be able to obtain the intellect items from Flexible mode, due to the personal loot system in place there. They would have to obtain at least some pieces from Normal mode and Ordos to complete the set. Agility specced monks and druids would either have to play as, or set their loot preference, to an Intellect spec to get the Flex items.

There are multiple options for several of the armor slots, and all lookalikes after the first one for each slot are listed in the “Alternatives” section.
