(Ilvl 130 items will probably be beating 3 piece TS by large amounts)

Of course, that probably just means we'll see a repeat of the Ten Storms three-piece bonus show up on a future set of gear.

Unless Blizzard puts out some amazing leather healing pieces, I really don't see myself wanting to switch away from 3 piece Stormrage. Maybe Blizz will put a Mana Regen Rating or Chain Heal Bonus Rating or something in order to make the pieces less desirable.
I probably shouldn't give them ideas though.

I was actually just considering this myself. I guess, problems like this are always gonig to arise with bonuses based around percentages scaling into future content. A similar problem has already been adressed going into the xpac, with the conversion of hit/crit percentages into ratings to prevent old items being overpowered at higher levels. If this set bonus stays as is, then surely people will be in 3 piece trans for ever? Ive certainly heard reports of a lot of priests saying they are wearing 3 trans/6 faith to maintain the bonus.
I see the same problem occuring for Druids (and Priests). Blizzard seems to be pushing spirit for us in our talents (Living Spirit, Tree Of Life), and our 3 piece set bonus (+15% mana regen while casting) is amazing.
I never played EQ myself, but a couple of people mentioned to me that some items ended up being irreplaceable do to bonuses they had on them, could this be occurring again?

The obvious answer to that is to simply repeat (but hopefully not inflate) the strong scaling set bonuses on future gear sets so that keeping really old gear just for set bonuses is not necessary. Alternately, they can nerf old scaling 3-piece set bonuses which cause issues like this.
