wow Patch 7.2: Transmogrification Sets Preview

4 posts in this topic

7HB8yzR.jpg

In the latest 7.2 PTR Build, the Appearances tab has been updated and is now fully functional. An early overview revealed that item appearances will be saved as Sets, allowing quick filtering of missing pieces (Tier & PvP Sets). It's easy to navigate through Tier Sets from previous raids and expansions or PvP Sets from previous Seasons.

Don't forget to check out our Transmogrification section for cool set ideas!

Transmogrification* allows players to collect weapons and armor in order to customize their appearance. With the launch of the Legion expansion, collecting has become even easier for those looking to stay on the cutting edge of Azerothian couture with the addition of the Appearances tab.

Patch 7.2 however, will help you take your collection just a little further by adding a new way to track your Transmogrication options with the addition of a Sets tab within the Appearances interface. You can quickly and easily scroll through the available sets for your class, see which items you've collected, and which you have not, for both available PvE and PvP sets. You’ll also be able to see how each set looks on your character without the need to preview each individual piece. It’s like having a magic mirror!

Mousing over individual items from a set that you haven’t collected will also indicate whether the item is a world drop, available from a vendor, or a boss drop as well as display other items that are using the same appearance.

The Transmogrification vendor will also have a new Sets tab which will display all of your collected sets. You can simply click on the set you want and it will apply the set appearance to your character without the need to select each item to create a set.

In patch 7.2: The Tomb of Sargeras, you’ll also be able to earn a variety of new Achievements such as “That’s So Last Millennium” for collecting the Tier 19 set from Nighthold.

*What is the Transmogrification System?

Transmogrification allows you to collect pieces of armor or weapons and use them to change the appearance of your equipped items. These items are automatically added to your collection when worn or when rewarded from quests and other activities. You can sell the item or disenchant it without losing the appearance or look of the item for use later. In the Collection Tab found in your navigation bar (shift-p), verify that the item is there prior to selling or disenchanting. Some items must be worn to add them to your wardrobe.

To make a change to your appearance, you’ll need to visit a Transmogrifier who are found in the capital cities. You’ll need to pay a small fee for their services each time you change your appearance.

While many items can be transmogged there are some basic rules to keep in mind.  Here are just a few:

  • The character must be able to equip the items.
  • Items must share the same armor type (examples: Plate for plate, cloth for cloth).
  • Weapons must be the same weapon type (exceptions: guns, crossbows, or bows.

They need to add more stuff like this to the game, good that we need to rely less on add-ons anymore to properly keep track of which transmog we do or don't have from which instances.

Guess right now we can look at each instance's pages individually on Dungeon Journal (or use addons that consolidate the information into an easy to read display), but a tab or screen which clearly shows you pieces you haven't unlocked separated by dungeon/raid would be amazing. Still a step in the right direction but hopefully they expand more on that.

I wish there was a system like transmog for hunter pets. The stable has not enough space if you are really into collecting pets and there is no search or filtering.

 

The new Set - Tab is awesome though.

      Tomb of Sargeras has a total of 9 encounters. In this early preview we're looking at different boss models and animations.
      Description
      Aegwynn used this sacred temple of Elune to lock away the defeated Sargeras' avatar. She hoped it would remain dormant, buried deep within the earth, but the lure of power has continued to draw foul entities to this site. When Gul'dan re-entered the tomb, he tore down Aegwynn's wards and opened a doorway for the Legion to invade. Now, the fel army tears at the vault, hoping to reclaim their master's power.
      The raid has four wings

      Four Tomb of Sargeras raid bosses will be tested from Thursday to Friday, February 23-24. After the testing's finished, the same bosses will remain open during the weekend on Normal difficulty.
      Game Director Ion "Watcher" Hazzikostas announced further raid testing scheduled for February 23-24.
      Testing Schedule
      All bosses will be available on Heroic difficulty.

      On Thursday and Friday, February 23-24, we will be conducting a raid test of four more Tomb of Sargeras Heroic bosses.

      Remember that Heroic difficulty scales for any group size between 10 and 30 players, so feel free to assemble and bring a group of any size within that range. 

      Thursday, February 23

      Sisters of the Moon - Heroic Tomb of Sargeras
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)

      The Desolate Host - Heroic Tomb of Sargeras
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)

      The Fallen Avatar - Heroic Tomb of Sargeras
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)

      After testing concludes on Friday, we plan to open Normal Tomb of Sargeras over the weekend, with these same four bosses available on Normal difficulty.

      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

      A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)

      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?

      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 110 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested. For 7.2 raid testing, we'll be granting players all the new 7.2 artifact traits IFplayers have done the quest to reveal those new traits. Complete the Broken Shore intro experience in order to access this quest.

      Q: How long does testing last?

      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      Wondering what to do before 7.2 hits? Farm plenty of Order Resources and Bloods of Sargeras! There's also gold-making potential related to Class Mounts & crafted Legendary items.
      1. Good Suramaritan -  don't forget to finish the Suramar story. It's one of the requirements to unlock account-wide Legion flying. If you haven't started questing in Suramar, you should start now to avoid delays when 7.2 launches.
      2. Accummulate at least 20,000 Order Resources so you can continue your Order Hall upgrade straight away. Note that some mount tints and Order Hall pets / vanity items require additional Order Resources to unlock so it's better to get more. The sixth tier upgrade for the Order Hall costs 20K with one hour research time and tier 7 costs 30,000 with 14 days of research time. You can turn in Blood of Sargeras for 200 Order Resources (Order Resources Cache). The shoulder enchant Boon of the Bloodhunter will help farm bloods faster as you will loot Bloodhunter's Quarry from enemies. More information about Order Hall upgrade can be found here.
      3. Paladins and Warlocks need materials to craft their mounts. Even though the crafting cost will be re-evaulated in a future build, make sure you have enough of them.
      Paladins need 50 Leystone Ores and 1 Saber's Eye. Warlocks need 10 Demonsteel Bars, 5 Pandemonite and 3 Unbending Potions. This also creates a good gold-making opportunity. Items above will have an increase in demand.
      4. Do you plan to craft Legendary items? Even though crafting requirements may change at any time during the 7.2 testing, keep a closer look at the crafting materials to have them ready.
      The items also have a gold-making potential when 7.2 arrives.
      125 Imbued Silkweave > Celumbra, the Night's Dichotomy 250 Stonehide Leather > The Sentinel's Eternal Refuge 250 Stormscale > Vigilance Perch 125 Demonsteel Bar > Rethu's Incessant Courage What's worth noting is that crafted Legendary items have become Bind on Equipped and can be sold in the Auction House, however it's still very early to say if they remain BoE. Nethershard Essence can be purchased for 2,000  Nethershards from Warmage Kath'leen.

      Slayer's Felbroken Shrieker is the Demon Hunter Class Mount added in Patch 7.2 unlocked after completing To Fel and Back quest (Felwing Ledge Scenario).
      Demon Hunters are getting a brand new Tier 20 Set appearance as they didn't exist back in the Burning Crusade. At the beginning of the video, the Demon Hunter's wearing the Normal difficulty Tier 20 Set that drops in the Tomb of Sargeras.
      No additional Demon Hunter Class Mount color variations are available as of Build 23578. Blizzard may add them in a future build, but this is just speculation, because Monks get a single Class Mount appearance too.

      About us: Converge has been around since WoW Vanilla and has been raiding together since Molten Core; most of our members have been playing together for years. In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members. Over the years we had to adjust our playtime and priorities with a growing list of RL responsibilities and are now, for all intents and purposes, a two day raiding guild. We had to cut our total hours spent playing WoW but we still remain just as competitive and result oriented.
      We raid twice a week, a total of 8 hours; attendance of 90% is mandatory. We require you to function at 100% from the second the raid starts all the way to its end; if you cannot commit to a raiding schedule and be online on time this is not a guild for you. GRepairs and flasks are provided by GBank; members pitch in mats and/or gold to help out. Guilds preparedness to raid and supply its members with enchants/etc is a team effort. If you are accepted as a member be prepared to do your part.
      At this point in time we are trying to round out our roster and eventually attempt Mythic raids once we feel comfortable with our raid composition.
      Raid Times: 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM Eastern Time – Monday/Tuesday.
      Recruitment: Currently we are only accepting Ranged DPS / Heals.
      Legion Progression:
      [EN] 7/7 Normal - 7/7 Heroic
      [ToV] 3/3 Normal - 3/3 Heroic
      [NH] 10/10 Normal - 7/10 Heroic
