Tier 4 (WoW)  

Tier 4 refers to the set of class equipment that is acquired from the bosses of Karazhan, Gruul's Lair and Magtheridon's Lair. These sets, the first in The Burning Crusade, represent a vast departure from previous gearsets. Portions of this set are acquired from a half-size raid, instead of only full-size raids as both previous and later sets required. Additionally, for the first time some of the classes had multiple sets of gear to choose from when redeeming tokens; instead of each class having an assigned role and set gear being designed around it, hybrids and off-spec characters were given their own unique gearsets. Tier 4 equipment sets consists of 5 pieces, and the set bonuses are at the 2- and 4-piece levels.

Tier 4 can also refer to a guild working on the entry-level dungeons in TBC, although most typically this specifically references the 25-man raids instead of only Karazhan.
