Well first patch for new mod hit the preview server so here's a glimpse at some of the new things we will get. There is an entirely new zone, the Lost City of Omu.
1. New weapon sets (5 new sets)
As title says there will be 5 new weapon sets next mod, all of them better than what we use now. At gold quality the new sets have 500 item lvl BUT they can be further upgraded to their 520 item lvl version later on. Unsure yet how to upgrade them or which profession does it as i found nothing new in recipes there yet.
A. This set is gotten from the 3-star hunt in Omu as drops.
B. This set is gotten from brave seal vendor for brave seals, 750 seals each (1.5k brave seals for full set).
C. This set is gotten from HEs and chult quests on new map.
D. This set is gotten from zen store in 2 separate packs, one packed with a companion and one packed with enchanted keys.
E. This set is gotten from masterworks so basically u can kiss this goodbye, getting rank 4 and 5 masterworks is insane.
2. New artifact sets (3 new belt/cloak/artifact sets)
A. The belt and cloak are gotten from hunts in new zone, artifact is gotten from the Merchant Prince's Folly skirmish.
B. The belt and cloak are gotten from hunts in new zone, artifact is gotten from Tomb of the Nine Gods dungeon.
C. This set is all gotten from the new raid, Cradle of the Death God.
