Tier 5 is a type of item set. Each set consist of 5 pieces.
Each piece is purchased by acquiring an armor token from defeating a Burning Crusade raid boss. Each token is good for one piece of armor (chest, head, etc.), and is valid for any of several particular classes. Note that as this was created before death knights, monks, and demon hunters were available, there are no tier 5 sets for these classes.
Some classes have several sets, each designed for a different talent tree.
