Tier 6 is the last tier that was released in The Burning Crusade — and it’s also got a unique twist. When the Sunwell raid was released at the end of the expansion, players looked forward to new armor and weapons. But what they got was an additional set of tier tokens for boots, belts and bracers for their tier 6 set. Oddly enough, the belts, boots and bracers weren’t quite an exact match to the set itself — check out the gallery for a look at the full five-piece set, plus the belts, boots and bracers from Sunwell Plateau.
