Every class has "dungeon", "raid", and "PvP" equipment sets available to them. These sets are typically head, shoulder, chest, wrist, hands, waist, legs, and feet items (8 pieces altogether), but set composition can vary dramatically.

Theoretically, these sets benefit the activity one engages in to acquire them: PvP sets are best in PvP situations, raid sets in raid situations, etc., but some players have found it more beneficial to mix and match.

All sets give extra bonuses when wearing multiple pieces of the set.

Dungeon sets

Dungeon Set 1 (8 pieces) These set pieces are no longer available as of patch 4.0.1
The items that form these sets may be found in the lvl 58-60 instances (Stratholme, Scholomance, Upper, and Lower Blackrock Spire), set pieces have level requirements of 52-58. The pieces occupy the chest, feet, hands, head, legs, shoulders, waist, and wrist slots.
Dungeon Set 2 (8 pieces) These set pieces are no longer available as of patch 4.0.1
Since Patch 1.10, the items from dungeon set 1 can be upgraded by a quest chain, to form the dungeon set 2. Dungeon Set 2 pieces have no level requirements, however the quest chain needed to obtain them requires level 58. The pieces occupy the chest, feet, hands, head, legs, shoulders, waist, and wrist slots.
Dungeon Set 3 (5 pieces) Bc icon
Obtained from high non-raid instances in Outland (Shattered Halls, The Steamvault, Sethekk Halls, Shadow Labyrinth, Botanica, Mechanar, Arcatraz, and Black Morass). The sets, which have class-specific bonuses, drop from non-heroic instances, while some parts of the universal sets drop from heroic instances. Most pieces require level 70. The pieces occupy the chest, head, legs, shoulder and wrist slots.

Raid sets

Non-class sets

Non-class sets are not restricted by class. Any class that is qualified to wear the armor type can wear the set. Technically, all Dungeon 1 and all Dungeon 3 sets are non-class sets, as they don't have a class requirement. However, some sets, including all Dungeon 1 and some Dungeon 3 sets, are aimed at specific classes due to the bonuses on the sets. All non-class sets give extra bonuses when wearing multiple pieces of the set.
