Why no "Tier 1"?

The only "Tier 1" zones in Secrets of Faydwer is Dragonscale Hills and Loping Plains. There is no armor to be found in these zones. The first armor becomes attainable in Tier 2 zones, thus we begin with "Tier 2".

Use the Bracer Tuneforge Contrivance to alter the focus on a wrist piece of armor.
