    How close are YOU to finishing your Tier 3 set? (Naxx)

    So I'm just curious since I figure some of you are pretty excited about picking up Tier 3 since it came back via the BMAH. My question is, how successful/lucky have you been? I've been focusing on my paladin (BC and later main) and priest (vanilla main) in the hopes of finishing up the sets. I play on a server which is medium pop at best so I've had some luck....5/8 each (6/8 on the priest if I'm lucky today) and I've only lost a bidding war on one item. (Pally shoulders)

    I'm also interested in seeing how varied the gear popping up is. I think my server has done really well on everything except mage, I only recall seeing one mage item to this day.

    EDIT: Also, what classes are you collecting for? More than 1 toon? I left the poll multiple choice for that reason. =)

    At the rate I am going my alt warrior will be done before my druid main.
    Ha, come to Hydraxis, we have tons of druid/shammy tier here. =) I'm kind of surprised you're picking up warrior stuff so easily, bidding is pretty cutthroat between warriors and DKs for warrior tier on my server at least.

    I haven't bought any, but I've seen 99% Warrior/Mage gear. Only Priest item so far has been gloves.

    I've got (nearly) the full set on my warrior from back at 60 when it was relevant. We never had a Dreadnaught ring drop, and since I was DPS back then, I was 3rd in line for the chest, of which 2 only ever dropped But, I use the FoS dark portal tabard, so I can get away with using a generic black chestpiece, mostly.

    However, I've since swapped to my Paladin, and am using the gold CM xmog at the moment. I doubt I'd ever go for the Redemption set, given the better textures and animations on the CM set, but my warrior still rocks the OG T3 with pride. Maybe I'd buy the chest, just for completionist's sake...but I think I'd feel dirty getting it via the BMAH.

    After observing 30 Servers daily for quite some time I can honestly say that Druid/Rogue Tier 3 has a 50 times bigger chance to pop up on the BMAH than any other Class Tier 3. Anyway so far i got 3 Warlock Tier 3 Pieces for my Priest (Chest/Shoulder's/Belt and 2 Warrior Tier 3 Pieces for my Paladin (Shoulder's/Leg's).

    If you killed the content when it was relevant and rng just fucked you, I don't see why. =)

    Nope. Hunter tier 3 is ugly. My random green set is nice.

    The 2 classes I play (Priest/Rogue) tier 3 doesn't look that epic compared to say Warlocks tier 3... now that's an EPIC set!

    So i dont see what the appeal of teir 3 gear is,i think the teir 7 recolor looks far better my self, and you cant really go for prestige cause most people know about the bmah.

    9/9 since BC :P

    I got my druid T3 at 60 (full 9/9, ring included) and then sharded it piece by piece as I got Karazhan gear. I wished I'd had it in Cataclysm when transmog came around, but now that people can get it again it's meh. I'm not really sure I would have cared about it in cata either, seeing how most people who got their T3 before BMAH got it at 70, and not at 60 when it was relevant. Lots of people got belt/bracers of course, but pretty much every guild that raided kill Razuvius and Anub back in Naxx 40 at level 60, so to say you got those pieces at 60 really isn't saying much.

    You can lead a person to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

    Well, the guy said he had all the pieces except the chest, and they had killed it enough to get it to drop twice and he was 3rd in line which would've majorly sucked. Sure, he may be full of shit but for the most part I take people at their word on these forums when they're actually discussion stuff normally, he didn't seem to be e-peening about it and it's not like he wins anything on these boards for claiming he had t3 when it was relevant. =)

    Also, @ Blar: "So i dont see what the appeal of teir 3 gear is,i think the teir 7 recolor looks far better my self, and you cant really go for prestige cause most people know about the bmah." For me personally, I started late enough in Vanilla (September '06) that I never had the opportunity to get into Naxx before BC hit and I always wanted the set. Only speaking for myself it's just gratification for me, not to make everyone else think I'm an e-baller.

    Meh, there were 2 guilds (maybe 3, I can't recall) on my server in Vanilla that cleared Naxx40 repeatedly prior to BC. So that's quite a few folks, for just one server. That said, the server (Medivh - US) was a bit of an anomoly in terms of PVE progress for it's day (world or US first Ony IIRC, world or US first Rags, many US first BWL kills, world first AQ gates opened, few US firsts in Naxx).

    And a lot of the T7 recolor's look good, but the reason (I personally think) that so many prefer T3 for classes like warrior is because of the LACK of updating. Dreadnaught 2.0 just stuck axe-blades on everything and (again, IMO) really ruined the entire set. Plus, Dreadnaught on a DK (and maybe pally, though that's a bit of an identity crisis)looks sick and quite DK-ish.

    But yeah, I wouldn't mind finishing off my set if it was cheap, but being that it's rarely visible behind a tabard AND on an alt now, I don't have the burning desire to purchase the chest (over someone who probably wants it a lot more)

    Sadly I don't think there is any achiv that will show Naxx stuff, but you can look up my char on the armory for some FoS dates that would (logically) indicate competitive raiding/playing in Vanilla ([email protected] or [email protected]).
