Armor token

Armor tokens are currency used to purchase pieces of armor that are part of raid tier armor sets. Armor tokens from the most recent tiers can be used to purchase head, shoulder, chest, hand, and legs armor, as well as back in World of Warcraft: Legion. They come in four levels of power, which are: raid finder, normal, heroic and mythic. The raid finder tokens were introduced for the Dragon Soul raid (Tier 13), and previous tiers had, at most, normal and heroic tokens.

Furthermore, the tokens are divided into three types which correspond to the classes that can purchase armor with them. The Vanquisher tokens can be used by Rogues, Death Knights, Mages, and Druids. The Conqueror tokens can be used by Paladins, Priests, Warlocks and Demon Hunters. The Protector tokens can be used by Warriors, Hunters, Shamans, and Monks.

During World of Warcraft: Cataclysm not all armor in tier sets were purchased with individual tokens, and some sets have more than 5 pieces: tier 16 have 8 tokens, while tier 19 have 6 tokens. In 2012, Blizzard stated that they would not intend to allow tier pieces to be bought with points such as [Justice Points] or [Valor Points], and instead they would only be available from raid-dropped armor tokens.[citation needed]  (In Tier 11 and Tier 12, some pieces could be bought with [Valor Points]).

Starting with World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor, tier pieces are created directly through tokens dropped from bosses, and in World of Warcraft: Legion tier pieces drops directly from bosses unless Master Loot is enabled.
