    Tier 13 Set Pieces Acquisition
    Originally Posted by Takralus (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    We recognize that making the tier 13 set pieces available only as raid drops leaves players much more subject to RNG drop rates/loot rolls, but we have a couple of plans to try and alleviate the sense of burden that stems from the randomness of token drops.

    The way tier 13 pieces will be obtained in the 4.3 raid won't be unlike raids past, meaning players will still need to roll on multi-class set tokens. That said, we'll be tweaking the tier 13 10-player drop rates a little bit (for the better) relative to the 25-player version, given that these tier pieces can't be purchased from vendors for Valor Points.

    In addition, due to tier pieces not being offered for Valor Points, another thing you'll see in patch 4.3 is a much wider array of desirable non-set loot (covering more slots than prior patches) available from the vendors, for those players who are unlucky with specific token drops, or who aren't interested in raiding—although, once you get more details about the Raid Finder, we hope you'll find interest in having a go.

    Keep in mind we do intend to allow tier 13 set pieces to drop for those using the upcoming Raid Finder. Similar to the difference between normal and Heroic versions of tier sets, the Raid Finder set will have a lower item level than the normal and Heroic counterparts.

    Set pieces from all three difficulty levels can still be mixed and matched for the two and four-piece bonuses.

    Raid Finder is going to be the missing piece to Blizzard's raider issues.

    kind of going to be a deterrance to log on in some cases for people. i mean why bother logging on outside raid times and/or doing dungeons to buy gear you're probably going to replace when your tokens/gear drop in raid? This is of course from the point of view that you are in a raiding guild and are raiding actively. For the not so inclined it definitely sounds like a plus.

    I however am a raider >.>

    Pretty pumped about this whole idea. Any chance of a post with brewfest updates? I'd like to see what gear we should expect this year.

    sooooo transmog was the just the preemptive solution to absolutely every player having full teir set? O_o?

    full identical VP set OR full LFR teir set baseline, XD

    Very pleased to hear there will be a raid finder tier 13, puts my opinion of 4.3 at a much higher level than previously.

    Awesome. I'm now ok with this change.

    WTB Head/Shoulder/Chest/Bracer/Glove/Waist/Leg/Boot slot non set valor items. Because not every set bonus is worth getting.

    That let's me hope, that the T13 warlock set is just the raidfinder version and that the other two are less colourful.

    I'm also intruiged to find out how raid finder will affect lockouts. will it be similar to how ZA/ZG can be spammed all day every day, even though you're locked out? Or will using the raid finder screw you for the rest of the week as a raider with your guild?
