Catch-up gear in Patch 8.3 comes in the form of Bind-to-Account tokens. You can get them by participating in Visions of N'Zoth content including Assaults, killing Rare Elites in Uldum, Vale of Eternal Blossoms, and in Horrific Visions.



The following attributes apply to Black Empire Gear in Patch 8.3:

  • Black Empire Gear tokens are Bind to Account, meaning you can send them to your alts.
