Home World of Warcraft Classes Dragonflight Tier Sets Guide

Welcome to the Overgear guide on Dragonflight Tier Sets. Here you will find all the information about the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion. We will try to cover every single aspect of the changes to provide you with the most up-to-date information. It’s time to grab some snacks as our guide starts here.

Dragonflight Tier Sets Overview

Like in past expansions, tier sets are powerful armor sets that give your character a significant boost for DPS, HPS, or tanking abilities. Once you get 2 tier set pieces, you unlock the first bonus, which changes or upgrades one of your spec key abilities. When you get 4 pieces, you’ll get another powerful bonus.

In most cases, the item level of the tier set is not as important as the bonuses it gives you. So if you plan to play in Dragonflight high-end content, no matter if it is PvP or PvE, you can’t make it without a set.

How to get Dragonflight Tier Sets

If to talk about things in general there aren’t a lot of changes. Primalist Class Tier Sets are composed of 5 pieces of armor and can be acquired through the tokens dropped from The Vault of the Incarnates raid bosses. There are four types of tokens and their item level varies between 389 and 398 for Normal, from 402 to 411 for Heroic, and from 415 to 424 for Mythic mode. Bosses drop various ilvl loot and tokens drop starting with 4th boss. Check out the list of them:

  • Zenith Tokens — shared between Evoker, Monks, Rogues, and Warriors
  • Dreadful Tokens — shared between Death Knights, Demon Hunters, and Warlocks
  • Mystic Tokens — shared between Druids, Hunters, and Mages
  • Venerated Tokens — shared between Paladins, Priest, and Shamans

Dragonflight Tier Sets Guide

There is also another way to get the set. In 9.2 there was the Creation Catalyst that allowed players to reforge their gear into set pieces. This feature will be met in Dragonflight with another name: the Inspiration Catalyst. That means players don’t have to raid to get the set. Note, that The Inspiration Catalyst will be available in six weeks after the Mythic Vault of the Incarnates opens. That is approximately January 23, 2023. There is no more information at this time.

Also, Tier Sets can be acquired with a low chance through the Great Vault. The item level of rewards depends on raid difficulty. To unlock all three item choices, one must:

  • Defeat 2 Vault of the Incarnates bosses
  • Defeat 4 Vault of the Incarnates bosses
  • Defeat 6 Vault of the Incarnates bosses.

All in all, Dragonflight Season 1 Class Sets have a pretty interesting proto-dragons-style appearance. A combination of different elements makes set designs look spectacular. Each element represents a particular class.

Tier Set Crafting

There is also another way to get the set. Starting January 24 (January 25 for EU), Revival Catalyst will become available. You are familiar with the mechanics of how it works if you have played Shadowlands. In a separate Revival Catalyst guide, we described in detail the mechanics of its work, however, here, we will describe the general points.

Dragonflight Tier Sets Guide

On January 24th (January 25th for EU), you will receive an account-wide quest, for which you will receive 6 charges. These charges are personal for each character on the account. Having any non-crafted gear (preferably from Mythic+), you can turn it into part of a tier set. If you transform a Mythic+ gear into a tier set, then like any other Mythic+ gear, you can increase its ilvl for Valor.

Dragonflight Class Tier Set Bonuses

Granting two and four pieces of the set unlocks bonuses that increase the power of your character drastically. There is no way players will want to skip them. Below you can find some information about a particular class and role bonuses.
