that was a big thing when i first started playing the game. looking at the armour sets on the wow-europe site. Having no concept of the raids themselves apart from what was written on the wow website about them. but wanting to do them, the incentive to play them and get these awesome looking sets.and also seeing these higher level players standing around in IF looking as cool as the t2 / t3 sets did gave you incentive to want to raid also. i don't feel this is forced enough now tho, with so many options the whole "tier" concept is either outdated or needs a revamp. many people never try for full tier sets as they get better pieces individually.i found this myself raiding through tier4 and 5. having 5/5 could gimp you on other pieces. there should be some incentive beyond the (sometimes rather lacklustre) set bonus's for wearing a full raid tier set. They are supposed to mean something, but currently they dont. its not a symbol of anything anymore. i know wows, changed a lot since vanilla. but this is one change im sad to see.

See, Blizzard actually found that forcing people to load up on a full tier set was counter-productive, as they felt their gear choices were limited. That would be un-fun.

I understand what you mean, but it'd be nice to see some "worthwhile" set bonuses to give incentive to actually collect the full thing like it was back in PreBC
