This hasn't been set in stone yet, but here's some hopeful news for all you cosmetic hounds out there! Update 9, should the notes not change in the near future, will bring us a very very very special surprise:
- The original Barad Guldur sets are now available from the Classic skirmish vendors. New level 85 versions, with updated stats and different appearances are also available.
Before we all get too excited over this, bear in mind that these are NOT the Ceremonial versions of the pieces. This is the actual statted gear from Dol Guldur which is bound to character upon acquire. It'd be nice if there were ceremonial versions too, that way I can move them all to one of my three cosmetic storage toons without eating up already valuable vault space! Can you imagine not having to thrash the Lieutenant of Dol Goldur just for a one in twelve shot at those coveted Lore-master shoulders? And for the new 85 versions, I'm not sure if we're talking about entirely new skins or if these will be alternately colored skins. Guess we'll have to wait and see once they're added!
On a side note, there's a lot of new gear coming with these instances. I'm not sure if the NDA applies here, so I'll be playing it safe and strictly sticking with the notes. I've already tested the new content and seen the stats on the new instance-based class gear from the boss chests. I won't divulge stats here, but there seems to be a wide selection of cloaks, armor, and jewellery. The cosmetic skins haven't been added yet (hopefully they do *coughturbinecough*) and the gear is visually mundane, but this could also bring a greater influx of new outfits to the cosmetic community if my prediction holds!
Hopefully I'll be able to post some cosmetic preview in the upcoming weeks!
