Transmog Appearance Sets Feature from Patch 7.2 PTR
Hi! I’m Hazel, and this is a quick look at the new Appearance Sets feature on the Patch 7.2. PTR. You can access this in your Collections menu and also in the Transmog interface. Open up your Collections, which is by default bound to Shift-P, go to Appearances and you’ll see a new tab at the top labeled Sets. It looks like this. You’ll see a big list of tier and pvp sets in chronological order, with the most recent at the top. Selecting a set will show you how it looks on your character, with a display listing which pieces you have and which ones you still need.
Mouse over a piece to see what it’s called and where it’s from. While mousing over, you can press Tab to tab through pieces with the same look for that slot. If an appearance can drop from more than one boss, this lets you see which ones you’re after. At the top right you’ll see a drop down list letting you select which version you want to check out. Some of these are just recolors, and some of them are completley different sets. As an example, Raid Finder through Mythic looks for Tier 19 are under one entry despite Mythic being a very different look.
Same goes for Gladiator and Combatant gear for a given PvP season. The scrolling menu on the left is color coded based on how much of the set you’ve collected. Grey is for no pieces, green is for some and fully collected sets show as yellow. When you actually go to mog your gear at the Transmog interface, only yellow sets will show up. To fully collect a set you’ll need all the pieces- pants, boots, bracers, all of it. Collector types are going to have a great time ‘yellowing’ out their appearance journal.
The filter button over here lets you filter by collected, not collected, PvE and PvP. So, If you’re not interested in PvP sets at all you can just filter them out and pretend they never happened. Something to keep in mind is that this only shows Tier and PvP sets. Dungeon sets, leveling sets and fashionable greens are not included. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the system expanded to cover them later. If not, there’s a good chance that addon authors will jump on this and add more functionality.
The new Sets tab is a great way to quickly see how a set will look on your character. This should keep the fashion-focused players busy for quite a while. If you’re heading out to farm up sets, I recommend the MonArs wardrobe helper addon to help you keep track of which appearances you need from each instance. It can give you a little checklist of which appearances you don’t have and the bosses they drop off of. I’ll throw a link to that addon in the description below this video. So, that’s the Appearance Sets feature coming in Patch 7.2! This is an awesome quality of life feature that I didn’t know I wanted, but now that I’ve seen it I need it. Thanks for watching! Let me know what you think, and have a wonderful, wonderful day. Bye!
