Candide:Disregard the previous statement because it is very confusing and misleading. There are Multiple Tiers and Dungeon sets for armor. Every class has three different dungeon sets available, and currently 5 (soon to be 6 "Tiered" set available to them. In the Pre-Burning Crusade days, players had the ability to obtain:Dungeon Set 1 (also referred to as Tier 0 because it is weak) Was obtained through multiple places, like Strathholme, Scholomance, UBRS and LBRS. The set consisted entirely of Blue pieces and contained 8 pieces of armor.Dungeon Set 2 was (contrary to popular belief) significantly better than Dungeon set one and was attained by questing to upgrade your set. Many players considered it a waste of time to pay the cash required to upgrade it because better gear could be obtained in Molten Core. The set contained 8 pieces still with a number of them at epic quality.Tier 1: Obtained Through Molten Core after 183727 hours of grinding away mobs, especially for guild beginning to raid. 8 Pieces, all epic. Tier 2 was obtained in Black Wing Lair. It was 8 pieces and again all of them were epic. Tier 2.5 was sort of a player named tier, in which a 5 piece set could be obtained from countless hours of grinding Cenarion Circle Rep and drops in AQ40.Tier 3 was the first 9 piece set and all the pieces dropped in token like form from Naxx. Token form being "Desecrated Shoulderpads" in which a warlock, a priest, or a mage could roll on, and on of them could turn the "token" in for their t3 piece of armor. This was to eliminate wasted armor drops if everyone already had the piece they needed.Burning Crusade:Unless you were in full tier 3, it is unlikely that you have maintained any of your pre-tbc armor. So we start on a brand new set of dungeon sets and tiers. Unlike Pre-TBC all the sets in the Outland are only 5 pieces.Dungeon set 3: 5 Pieces, Rare (blue) quality. Obtained in multiplaces, ie Shattered Halls, Steamvvaults, Botanica, and Mechanar and Shadow Labs. The loot is dropped as is, meaning if hunter pants drop, and you have no hunter, they are wasted. Aside from there being a class specific set for all classes, there is also a generic Plate, Cloth, and Mail set for classes to obtain for off-specs.Tier 4: 5 piece, Epic set. Dropped in Multiple places, Kharazahn, Gruul's Lair. Dropped in Token based Form.Tier 5: 5 piece epic set. Dropped in Multiple places, Gruul's Lair, Serpentshrine, Magtheridon and Tempest Keep. Also Dropped in Token FormTier 6: Dropped in Black Temple. Unsure as to details of how it drops. Presumably 5 piece set. Will be epic quality.
