Feedback Thread - Set Bonuses + Trinkets

Once the latest PTR build is deployed and realms come up from maintenance, you'll be able to try out some new 6.2 gear! This includes set bonuses, trinkets, and PvP Gear! Head over to Stormwind/Orgrimmar and you'll find several gigantic, well-dressed Tauren NPCs. There should be one for PvP Gear, one for LFR sets, and one for trinkets + normal set pieces.

Please use this thread to discuss any feedback on the set bonuses or other gear. This will make it easier for designers and the QA Team to read over your feedback, concerns, and bug reports. We'd love to know what you think about these items but please keep in mind detailed, actionable feedback will help us the most!

High-Profile Known Issues (some of which are already fixed in current dev builds):

  • Multiple trinkets are not flagged properly for classes and specs. Setting your filter to "All" on the vendor window will let you see all trinkets and items.
  • Soul Capacitor (agility trinket) does not function properly.
  • Core of the Primal Elements (Shaman Trinket) does not properly apply the elemental spec bonus if the Shaman is not Elemental spec when equipping the trinket.
  • Demons summoned from Warlock Demonology 4-piece Bonus miss all of their attacks.
  • Shadow Priest 2-Piece Bonus removes the cooldown of Mindbender rather than reduce it.
