    Default Why is there no T3 (Raid Tier 1) Belt?

    There are T2 vendor belts you can buy with Plaques, and T4 (Raid Tier 2) belts you buy with greater Marks. But there are no T3 (Raid Tier 1) belts. Does anyone know why?

    There is a large number of belts that drop in GSB/RoS that are easy to attain, so they probably felt it would be overkill to add one to the vendor that required you to farm more marks.

    It's worth noting that belts are not part of the equipment sets, so wouldn't count toward synergy bonuses, either.

    What I remember with the belts is that the upgrade in stats over your T2 belt was so small, many players were reluctant to "waste" dkp on them.

    that's why a dkp system is stupid. just let people roll on them. belts often come from trash drops anyway.

    Well, even if you just /roll on them, usually you'd have a rule only one item per person. You wanna give up your chance on a relic for a 5-point upgrade to your belt slot?

    Regardless, say Trion made all the GSB trash-dropped belts available for purchase with Marks. Do you think anyone would ever actually buy it? Cuz by the time you have Marks to waste on a belt, surely you already have the same or better.

    They are a part of the HK equipment set. I am pretty sure they count for PvP also

    They don't count for PvP.
