Sunwell Plateau drops sets of similar armor types sharing the same models but with different stats for another spec or class. These set share the same look as the Season 4 Brutal Gladiator's and Guardian's gear and have been referred to as Tier 6.5 by some. These sets are gotten through drops in Sunwell Plateau or are purchased from Yrma at Sun's Reach Harbor on the Isle of Quel'Danas by turning-in a specific drop along with one for its counterpart piece. The skins of the new Tier 6 armor for waist, wrists, and feet match the Sunwell sets instead of the original Tier 6 armor sets. These sets do not offer class-exclusive bonuses and some items are also desired by different classes and armor types.
The legs drop from Kalecgos, Brutallus, and Felmyst. The shoulders drop from Eredar Twins. The chests drop from M'uru. The helms drop from Kil'jaeden. The hands drop from various bosses and trash in Sunwell.
