Can tier gear not be Thunderforged?

EDIT: Also, the gloves would end up being 6 ilevels higher as well.

Thunderforged is for non-tier pieces afaik.

I don't think Thunderforged is an upgrade kind of thing, the gear that has Thunderforged on it doesn't exist in a non-Thundeforged state. I think Thunderforged is just a higher quality of gear that only exists in a Thunderforged state, and gear that is not Thunderforged can never be Thunderforged. Those gloves are 535 though, not 541.

Some not all.

In any case, unless we're absolutely swimming in Hit (which we very well may be), that chest has 101 more Agility (not counting sockets).

I could've sworn Blizzard stated that all gear can be Thunderforged ("Maybe" sans tier--not really sure about that), but that it was a rare chance that a piece that dropped "was" Thunderforged. Greater chance on 25 mans, yada yada.

There are still no plans for tier items to be available with the Thunderforged designation.


I think Thunderforged is meant to be like Crystalized Firestones, except the item dropped is already upgraded.

This means that there will be five variations of some items. You’ll now see a 5.2 raid item of LFR quality at item level 502, the same item in Normal quality at item level 522, the item in Normal Thunderforged quality at item level 528, the Heroic version of the item at level 535, and the Heroic Thunderforged version of the item at level 541.

So everything besides tier gear then will have the possibility of being dropped upgraded to Thunderforged.

I wonder what the Asian realms get...Super-Thunderforged?

I'm aware, but there is currently no crossover of non-Thunderforged items and Thunderforged items.
Asian raids will drop Thunderforged gear that is higher ilvl than our raids Thunderforged stuff.

So gist, any word on how the trinkets might rank for us in the next tier?

idk, I still play table-top D&D. And not even 4th ed; Wizards of the Coast ruined the game. We play heavily modified 2.5 ed.
ilu, imo ad&d was the best!


yeah, rock it old skool style or gtfo :)

... I forgot all about those things. 4.2 was the first tier I ever saw any heroic raiding content, and we only got Domo/Shannox/Rhyolith before DS dropped, so it's not like we were swimming in the Firestones. Not even sure I was ever assigned one.

You mean Thunderforged items are...exclusive? I mean, that's not the context of the blue post. They probably just aren't listed on Wowhead or anything yet.

I managed to get 5/6 H bosses back in FL and I felt we were 'swimming' in Firestones. Not drops every single week, but we did get enough to upgrade lots of stuff (I actually got both my Enh and Resto relics upgraded, and I was among the last to get my stones).

From what the blues described, they are not meant to be exclusive. An item like Bracers of Ultimate Super Awesome Troll Power should exist in LFR version, Normal version, N TF version, H version and H TF version; not just as Thunderforged. I haven't bothered to check Thunderforged vs non-Thunderforged items datamined yet, but I'd be surprised if the TF items did not exist in non-TF version.

Well, they're asians. Everything they have is superior and alien.

Kind of like when a blue post said it was gonna be 2 weeks, and then a blue post the next day said it'd be 3? I don't know why some items would be in the files while others would not. If those gloves have a Thunderforged form, then they'd be better. Or maybe even the offpiece helm. But I doubt we'll see any crossover.

edit: buns hair, do like?

Eh, we'll see. Still probably just a 'lil' too early.

Not bad. I'm considering a new hairstyle as well. Should I drop the hawk and go to something maybe more...classy?

Just seems weird that every other piece of loot as been put into the game except these crossover pieces, even the Heroic Thunderforged pieces that actually are exclusive, like those Ra-den drops.

I actually really like the female-orc-with-mohawk thing. I mostly don't properly appreciate non-BE, non-pandaren Horde races, but I can respect a female orc with a mohawk.

It looks horrible, it's all between the eyes and stuff. Really unattractive. Unlike my bunz.
