There appears to be a confusing naming error on the Ascended WvW gear.
I think this is how it should be:
- Tier 1 should be called:
- Tier 2 should all be called: Mistforged
- Tier 3 should be called: Sublime Mistforged
At the moment, the list is as in the screenshot.
The text on the Sublime Chest Piece reads: “You must own the Triumphant Hero’s Raiment and be WvW rank 2000 to purchase this armor.”
I think that should read Mistforged Triumphant Hero’s Raiment – so you need Tier2 to buy Tier3.
But I’m not sure.
The names are correct. I think the confusion here stems from the names of the Triumphant Hero’s armor getting cut off in the vendor UI. I attached a pic of what it looks like before all those currencies start taking up space. You can also confirm these names by mousing over the items in the vendor window to pull up the tooltip.
The naming tiers go Triumphant->Triumphant Hero’s->Mistforged Triumphant Hero’s, and the sublime chest piece has the tendril effect on the back.
