When it comes down to Tier gear, I’m somewhat torn. Quite frankly, the Tier 2 Paladin armor set is the most iconic set there is, as far as I’m concerned. Whenever someone mentions the word “tier” it’s the first set I think of. At the same time, I just love what the Priests got at Tier 5, the Avatar set. So rather than just pick one, I’ll choose both. And then funny enough, I’ll choose neither.
Don’t get me wrong, I like both sets of gear. But the thing is, I’m just not a Tier gear kind of person. I never have been. Okay, I’ve wanted to complete some sets, but that’s more to feed my OCD and has nothing to do with how good or bad the outfit actually looks. I was a campaigner for transmogrification before it had a name, and with good reason. While Blizzard makes some nice sets, they also make some horrid ones. Plus, just because the set looks nice doesn’t mean it looks good on my character or even fits that character. These are among the many factors that see me making my own sets instead of using Tier gear.
It now occurs to me that this question may have been asking which set is/was the best in terms of skill. Let’s face it, if that’s the question…I haven’t the foggiest idea and won’t pretend to.
