Generally, what's better? A tier set or a set you can put together from boss drops? Or is this too broad of a question?
Blizzard wants you to be motivated to wear tier sets, and it does that by offering set bonuses that make wearing a set more powerful than wearing a collection of non-set gear. There may be some cases where a non-set piece may provide better stats than a set piece does, and that's why there are five pieces in a set but the bonuses stop at four. Flexibility!
i was running with someone today that had the t13 helm, 384 version, i was wondering how that was possible because that wing isn't open yet(drops off the 6th boss)
Raid Finder bosses all have a chance at dropping each of the tier pieces.
You guys ever consider forums?
Oh, boy, I hope not.
