One of the biggest problems with imba tier bonuses is that parting is such a sweet sorrow. The 4-piece tier 5 bonus comes to mind ([spell]37327[/spell]). Another is the 2-piece tier 8 ([spell]64818[/spell]). The “simplified” set bonuses, as Blizzard has referred to Tier 9 as such, have given me a dilemma on which gear I want to shoot for. While I like the instant double starfire crit / pull agro / die effect the 4pc T8 bonus brings ([spell]64824[/spell]), I think it’s a safe bet to say the 2pc tier 9 bonuses is far superior. ([spell]67125[/spell]). The next decision is whether to break the 2pc Tier 8 bonus. Graylo has written an excellent post here detailing the number break down between 2pc T8 and the T9. His math shows it’s tier 9 4pc is not a viable option until you get 4 pieces of heroic gear. I guess Nightsong and I are going to be sticking around for awhile.
