    Patch 7.2 - Dungeon Set Models, Transmog Set Tab, Build of the Month, Nighthold Lore

    "Ben Brode on how long until Pirates walk the plank"

    Patch 7.2 - Dungeon Armor Sets
    Patch 7.2 adds new dungeon sets, as well as a new dungeon: Cathedral of Eternal Night.

    Cloth Dungeon Sets








    Leather Dungeon Sets








    Mail Dungeon Sets








    Plate Dungeon Sets







    Patch 7.2 - Transmog Set Tab
    Patch 7.2 adds a new tab to the appearance pane that lists item sets. Currently it isn't fully filled out, but it looks like it will include various Tier sets, allowing you to preview the set for each existing difficulty and determine which of the appearances you have collected.



    Build of the Month - January 2017
    Each month or so we will post a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

    All of the parts on this page are Amazon affiliate links. When you purchase your parts through them it helps support the site!

    This month
    The current SSD prices are fairly flat right now, with most SSDs under $0.50 per gigabyte when on sale.

    Depending on how much you want to overclock, you may need to spend a bit more for a better CPU cooler like the NH-D15.

    Unless you are doing a lot of video rendering or streaming, you do not need the 7700K and would get more performance from spending that money elsewhere.

    Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date.

    Yeah, that's probably the worst thing to advert. NEVER get anything from Alienware.

    Oh here comes the Alienware hate again.

    I always wanted an Alienware since I first took notice of them back in 1999. I didn't end up purchasing one until 2010! It was a display model at my local Micro Center. I trusted that it was working well since it had been on display for nearly a year and I had tried it out a few times on a few intense games. I never ever had any problems with it in the 6 years that I owned it. Display model cost me $1k

    My dream has been to buy a dual gpu 17" Alienware laptop. So when the M18x came out, I waited nearly 6 month after release and extensive reviews and ordered one from Dell. It arrived and I still love how powerful and huge the screen is, even today. I did have one issue with it, but I was able to bypass a known, minor sound card issue that had to do with the mobo. I could have gotten a refund and exchanged for another new laptop, but it would have the same issue if I tried to use the SP/DIF to 3.5mm audio adapter bent pin on mobo connection issue. Nonetheless I was happy with my $3k purchase.

    Finally I wanted an upgrade to my Area 51 desktop so I bought the previous gen Area 51 desktop (mode right before the triad design) from a Texas reseller and refurbished for $1k used. Added in a new GTX 970 and it runs everything flawlessly (video card issues from time to time, but that's Nvidias or the board manufacturers fault)

    I've heard horror stories about Alienware systems that won't even boot out the box but that hasn't been my experience. I plan to purchase a new Aurora desktop after I publish my first novel and receive some money for it. And if the system should have issues (I never purchase he basic warranty anyways) then I will work with Dell to get it resolved or get my money back!

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: MMO-C should disclose that the build of the month links are AFFILIATE links, and MMO-C gets compensation for providing these "recommendations".

    That plate set is actually really cool looking for a dungeon set.

    Definitely Good for transmog in the future.

    The transmog tab, does it work with non-tier pieces, like recolored tier pieces. Or is it ONLY the tier items?

    Those are some seriously mediocre, ugly armor sets...holy shit

    It works with the LFR/Normal/Heroic/Mythic items right now (and the items that share that model)

    I like how there are 5 recolours for each set but we will likely be only able to get one to two of them when the new dungeon releases and I shit you not that they will all be the fugly brown and green ones but not the gold or purple ones.

    I like the Razer Naga 2014 but they have issues so frequently after using it. I'm on my 4th one. If I didn't get it for free I wouldn't be using it. Very unreliable. Release clicking and double clicking. Cool as they may be I'd stay clear of them.
