Mythic ToV xmog box set gone in BfA?

General Discussion
Is it or isn't it? On the one hand, it's an award from an achievement that's surely going away due to it's nature. On the other hand, most of the appearances are available from the raid itself as loot, so the set reward is really just filling in the blanks.
I think it's going to Feat of Strength, and yeah that means the box will be gone too. However my question is whether this will be gone prepatch or when actual BfA hits. I assume it will be prepatch
It wasn't in their announcement, but I think its suppose to be going away with the xpac release.
The difference is any other set/piece of gear is simply "from the dungeon."

At some point, you're going to outgear it, so getting things is simply GOING TO HAPPEN.

But the Mythic ToV set isn't like that. It's from completing an Achv, that isn't an Achv anymore once you outgear it. So it actually makes sense that it's going away.

Since all the other stuff is going away pre-patch (Spellwing, etc), I would assume that's when this is going.
It will be going away with prepatch as the achievement will be moved into a Feat of Strength achievement. This will include the box which will no longer be obtainable since it comes from the achievement.

But it is missing from the more recent checklist of things being removed:

We have to look up Twitter to see important info like this :(
I’m ok with them removing the box as long as they add the helm and shoulders to the drop table ^.^

Why is this sort of thing mentioned on Twitter rather than your official site?

well this 101% confirms it as I said before if the achievement was going away means the set was going away.

thanks.
If we've completed the achievement on one character is it possible to give us access to the other three transmog sets? It would be nice to not have to repeat this three more times, and a precedent for this can already be seen in-game with the Warlords challenge mode weapon appearances. If I remember correctly, you only needed to have earned weapon appearances for one character to get access to any appearance for all of your characters. Something like that would rock!
Can someone link the box set? Are we talking about the ones that are the quest reward for 1000 soul frags? (http://www.wowhead.com/trial-of-valor-loot-guide)

no it's the mythic difficult achievement where you have to kill every single boss in ToV without dying.. it's a personal achievement if others die in your raid but you still have odyn's buff you get the achievement + title + transmog set in your mailbox.

Please don't do this, it's incredibly frustrating. People have been asking for clarification for over a year (the first tweet about it was, I believe, March or May of 2017, but it was vague). It wasn't even mentioned in the recent "get it before it's gone" article. With stuff like mage tower and the violet spellwing, it's understandable. You made it clear a long time ago those would be going away.

Please just make the box a rare drop from Mythic Helya or something.

That would be a great idea. They did this with Ragnaros anniversary helms too.

This would be fine as well. Just don't make the appearance suddenly unobtainable.
Yep, I'm actually buying the run for it today, but this is flat out stupid. I'm only doing it because I found out a couple of weeks ago.

These numbskulls think it's funny to remove things from the game then confirm it's going away TWO WEEKS BEFORE REMOVAL.

Mind I only "knew" about this before because others where hard speculating it goes away.

STOP REMOVING THINGS WITHOUT OUTLINING IT IN BOLD, ON TOP OF YOUR WEBSITE, IN CAPITAL LETTERS AND PERMANENTLY STICKIED - AT LEAST A YEAR BEFORE SAID MOG GETS REMOVED.

YA BLOODY IDJITS.
