Tier 7 is a type of item set. Each set consists of 5 pieces. Separate 10-man and 25-man versions of each set exist, sometimes referred to by players as "tier 7.10" and "tier 7.25" (or "tier 7.5") respectively. 10-man sets are all prefixed with "Heroes'", and 25-man sets are all prefixed with "Valorous". Items from both sub-sets count towards the same set bonuses.
The Heroes rank of tier 7 are item level 200. The Valorous rank are item level 213.

- With the removal of the 40-man version of Naxxramas in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, the ability to obtain Tier 3 items was removed from the game, as Naxxramas moved to Northrend to become an entry level raid dungeon with 10- and 25-man versions. As a result, with the exception of the death knight set, the two versions of Tier 7 are based on Tier 3, both in terms of visual design and name.
- In this new tier naming system, "Garb" is a caster set, "Regalia" is a healing set, "Battlegear" is a physical damage set, and "Plate" is a tanking set. The Feral Druid set is called "Battlegear" because it can be used for melee () or tanking ( ), and the tanking name "Plate" is illogical since Druids cannot wear Plate armor.
