Tier 19 Sets Preview

18 posts in this topic

Tier 19 Sets will drop in the Nighthold. Find out more about their item level and set bonuses.

This is an early preview of Tier 19 Sets. The first Tier set of Legion will start dropping in the Nighthold. Blizzard is still tuning the set bonuses in the latest build of Patch 7.1.5. Here's a preview of the items class by class. Tier 19 Sets are comprised of 6 items, including cloaks. Complementary feet, waist and wrist armor that matches the sets will drop in Nighthold.

Item Level

All the gear has a chance to be Warforged / Titanforged. The items have a 0/2 Upgrade Level, indicating a possible return of Valor Points and Reforging in later stages of the Legion.

  • Raid Finder: 850+
  • Normal: 875+
  • Heroic: 890+
  • Mythic: 905+

Set Bonuses

There are only 2/4 piece set bonuses for Tier 19 items. There is no 6/6 bonus at this time and that's probably because we'll be filling those slots with Legendary items.

The latest PTR Build nerfs the Restoration Druid 4 piece bonus from 2% to 1% - Item - Druid T19 Restoration 4P BonusItem - Druid T19 Restoration 4P Bonus and the Shadow Priest 4 piece bonus from 6 to 4 seconds -  Item - Priest T19 Shadow 4P BonusItem - Priest T19 Shadow 4P Bonus.

Death Knight

Demon Hunter

I feel like I must be missing something super obvious here... There's no way this "news" article is reporting information that have been available since legion release in the dungeon journal, right?

Ok now im excited. This feels like the first raid tier with the other raids just being a glorified heroic gear up leading to our first tier sets.

It can't be this gear T_T it's the same look as a lot of other gear in Legion... Well at least the Mage stuff. I'm really hoping they are placeholders and i will finally get a good transmog for my hidden artefact firemage sword.

I understand your concern @Odeezy, but we didn't have a preview up so far and not every visitor has the chance to check the sets out in the game at their convenience, because of work and various other reasons. I've created the news so that we have them all in one place giving our community the opportunity to discuss set bonuses along with latest changes. From time to time, we also do survival guides that feature most of the additions a future content patch would bring (similar as we did with Patch 7.1). These summaries will often link to various "fragments" like this article in the future.

@Vavou I feel the same way. We'll have to wait for Tier 20 (Tier 6 reworks) in 7.2 I guess. It was mentioned that they will reuse and upgrade old Tier 6 Set models to let us witness what's possible with the newest engine. I am really looking forward to that, because it brings back fond memories.

i freely admit I had to look up the set because my brain couldn't remember, giggled because it was a male panda wearing it, but i agree it was a pretty awesome set.

I'm kind of biased towards ToT. I was playing a goblin and I saw a troll in the full set and freaked out in guild chat "ZOMG THIS HUNTER LOOKS LIKE A DINOSAR!!!!!" it was love at first sight.

They made the distinction with the flight form, so I would assume that they have on the mount as well... I hope. I pray.

yeah with upcoming stuff DK's are still getting shafted, Frost got fixed but there are so many issues not being addressed and with 7.1.5 the most inane changes are being made to unholy and blood that are ultimately fruitless, at least so far. So this time around I'm just kinda chilling in the background. Dk's don't get much love and after awhile you kinda get used to it T_T

I would have hoped the PvP/PvE separation would have fixed this :(

      It's a good idea to wait and turn your Emissary quests in after the latest content update goes live tomorrow, and here's why.
      Artifact Knowledge Enabled Again
      Artifact Knowledge catchup will be enabled again tomorrow and the amount of Artifact Power needed to level up your Heart of Azeroth will gradually decrease starting the week of January 22.

      Talanji's Expedition Emissary rewards 1,000 Artifact Power. Tomorrow, the amount of XP needed to level up your Heart of Azeroth will decrease, resulting in more Experience for the neckpiece.
      Improved Emissary Rewards
      Item level of Azerite gear rewards from Emissaries will be increased in Season 2. Hold off turning in the quest for a chance to receive Season 2 Azerite gear with the new outer ring.

      The Zandalari Empire Emissary rewards an Azerite Armor Cache today on US realms. Tomorrow, Azerite gear acquired from Emissary World Quests will have an increased item level and you will have a chance to receive new Azerite gear with the new outer ring, so don't turn the quest in just yet!
      If you're playing in the EU region, you should hold off turning in your World Quest Emissaries until Wednesday, unless they reward Gold.

      Overview
      Battle for Azeroth's second raid, Battle of Dazar'alor, houses 9 bosses.

      Alliance players will be transformed into Horde players for the last three bosses: High Tinker Mekkatorque, Stormwall Blockade and Jaina Proudmoore.
      Horde players will be transformed into Alliance players for Opulence, Conclave of the Chosen, and King Rastakhan.
      Raid Unlock Schedule

      Forbes recently interviewed Morgan Day about Mythic+ and the Mythic Dungeon Invitational and here's a recap of the interview.
      Check out the full interview over at Forbes
      Interview Highlights
      Changes are coming to the MDI in 2019 and you can find an overview in this post. The beginning of MDI closely lines up with the introduction of Reaping and Season 2. Mythic+ is extremely popular and half of the players at level 120 are engaging in Mythic+ content. Certain creatures within dungeons have mechanics that quickly ramp up damage and it was necessary to put a soft cap in those instances, because the fights would become impossible on Tyrannical. There's a fix set of affix combinations that activate each week. The Fortified + Teeming affix combo hasn't been adjusted for Season 2, because Infested that caused a lot of frustrating pulls in combination with said affixes is going away and with Reaping coming in, the system is going to take care of itself. Monsters summoned by the Season 2 Reaping affix don't gain Fortified themselves, but the creature will spawn at half the health of the creature that dies, so it will gain a small percentage of Fortified. There are currently no plans to come up with a system that allows easy key re-rolling. Instead, they'd like to adjust dungeons and bring the huge outliers down a bit. They adjusted King's Rest about a month ago.

      Improvements to Azerite Armor are coming on January 22. Blizzard added a new outer ring with two spec-specific traits to all armor acquired after Mythic Season 2 starts and the new raid opens. You will be able to get the new gear from PvP Season 2, Battle of Dazar'alor, World Quest Emissaries, and from the Titan Residuum vendor, who sells upgraded wares at a higher cost.
      New Azerite powers will become available in Tides of Vengeance Part II. Check out our updated Class guides for more details. 10 more ranks of Azerite Knowledge will be added over the course of January 22 through March. The catchup has been disabled for now, but it will commence soon. Reaching Friendly, Honored, and Revered and with Champions of Azeroth will unlock the appropriate quests to upgrade your Heart of Azeroth for all characters on your account. The cost of Azerite Reforging has been reduced from 72 hours to 24 hours. Blizzard (Source)
      Since the launch of Battle for Azeroth, players have been empowering their Heart of Azeroth and collecting Azerite armor to gear up for the battles ahead. Since then, we’ve made a variety of adjustments to the system—and we have a few more updates coming with the second part of Tides of Vengeance on January 22 that we’d like go into more detail on today.
      With the release of Battle for Azeroth Season 2, we’re introducing new epic Azerite pieces that you can acquire through a variety of methods, including Season 2 PvP, the Battle of Dazar’alor raid, World Quest Emissaries, and from the Mythic Keystone vendor Thaumaturge Vashreen in Zuldazar and Boralus. These new items will have a fifth ring with additional new trait options and is available at Heart of Azeroth level 15.  
      This new outer ring provides two choices of traits per specialization, giving players an opportunity to find items that have traits they particularly want—and the freedom to create new and interesting combinations that may not have been possible before. This additional ring of traits makes each item have a larger impact on your character’s overall power.
      Outer Ring:
      Powers that reside in the new outer ring provide two additional trait options for each of your character’s available specializations.  Example:
      Moment of Repose (Discipline) (Passive) Pain Suppression applies Atonement to the target and instantly heals them for 15,313. Second Ring:
      Powers that reside on the second ring from the outside will often be influenced by where you collected the piece of armor they’re found on. These powers can also be associated with specific class specializations.. Example:
      Seductive Power (Passive) Your spells and abilities have a chance to conjure Bwonsamdi’s spectral visage, beckoning you closer. If you approach him, gain 57 to all stats for 5 minutes, stacking up to 5 times. If you fail to heed his call, lose 1 stack. Third Ring:
      These powers generally benefit the performance of your in-game role—they’ll provide damage increases for DPS classes, increase damage mitigation for tanks, or bolster healing output for healers. Example:
      Bracing Chill (Passive) Your heals have a chance to apply Bracing Chill. Healing a target with Bracing Chill will heal for an additional 2,574 and move Bracing Chill to a nearby ally (up to 6 times). Fourth Ring:
      These are defensive or utility-oriented powers for your class. Example:
      Vampiric Speed (Passive) When an enemy you harmed dies, you heal for 6,361 and gain 93 Speed for 6 seconds. Fifth Ring:
      Azerite Empowerment is the power that resides at the center, and increases an armor piece’s item level by 5.  New Traits to Discover
      You’ll also find new location-specific traits that scale with item level and are available on gear from the Battle of Dazar’alor raid, including:
      Bonded Souls : Your spells and abilities have a chance to trigger a Soulbond for 15 seconds. During Soulbond, every 5 seconds you and your nearest ally are both healed for 3,456 and gain 141 Haste for 5 seconds. Seductive Power: Your spells and abilities have a chance to conjure Bwonsamdi’s spectral visage, beckoning you closer. If you approach him, gain 26 to all stats for 5 minutes, stacking up to 5 times. If you fail to heed his call, lose 1 Stack.  Treacherous Covenant: Your primary stat is increased by 151 while you are above 50% health. You take 15% increased damage while below 20% health. Azerite Knowledge
      With the start of Season 2, we’re also adding 10 more ranks of Azerite Knowledge over the course of  January 22 through March. Each rank of Artifact Knowledge increases the speed at which your Heart of Azeroth levels up.
      Tides of Vengeance Recap: Trait Updates and Additions
      With the launch of Tides of Vengeance on December 11, we replaced many of the Azerite traits we weren’t happy with and continue to iterate on various elements of the system to provide variety and flexibility in player gear choices.
      NEW TRAITS IN THE DARKSHORE WARFRONT
      It’s a good time to keep an eye on the shifting tides of the Darkshore Warfront. We added many new Azerite Armor traits that are just waiting to be collected, including:
      Ancients' Bulwark: Standing still grants you Deep Roots, increasing your Versatility by 179. Moving instead grants you Uprooted, healing you for 259 every 1 second. Apothecary's Concoctions: Your damaging abilities have a chance to deal 1,262 Plague damage over 6 seconds, and your healing abilities have a chance to restore 2,415 health over 6 seconds. These effects are increased by up to 100% based on the target’s missing health. Endless Hunger: Your Versatility is increased by 179. Moving near an enemy’s corpse consumes their essence, restoring 1,815 health.  Shadow of Elune: Your spells and abilities have a chance to increase your Haste by 465 for 15 seconds. At night, you also gain 10% movement speed for the duration. HEART OF AZEROTH LEVELING AND GEARING UP
      Reaching Friendly, Honored, or Revered reputation with the Champions of Azeroth faction now unlocks the appropriate quests to upgrade your Heart of Azeroth for all characters on your account.  
      The cost to change Azerite traits has been reduced from 72 hours to 24 hours.
      We’ve also added a new way for players who participate in Mythic Keystone Dungeons to gain specific Azerite Armor. These players will be able to earn a new currency—Titan Residuum—which can be used to purchase specific items from Thaumaturge Vashreen now located in either Zuldazar or Boralus. You can read more in our forum post.
      Season 2 and the Battle of Dazar’alor are just around the corner—are you ready for the challenges that await?
