Addons & Friendly Nameplates in Patch 7.2 - Wed, 01 Mar 2017 18:51:23 -0600 Following today's earlier Blizzard post roundup, we have another post--this time on addons in 7.2. In 7.2, addons cannot modify how friendly nameplates appear inside dungeons and raids, as Blizzard feels they were cleverly being used to automate positioning requirements. The other functionality of these addons will continue to work as before, just this one feature is being disabled.
There aren't any major in-game holidays in March 2017, but there are a lot of smaller events including Mists of Pandaria Timewalking. The For Azeroth event also continues for a few more weeks. We've added Wowhead links below to the March overview so you can navigate to our various guides and database pages easily.
7.2 PTR Development Notes for Build 23657 and Mythic Testing - Tue, 28 Feb 2017 15:44:07 -0600 Blizzard has posted the overview of what's coming in the next 7.2 PTR build. It seems to be a relatively small build focused around bug testing and tweaks, without new types of content or quests to try out. Over the next week, all Tomb of Sargeras bosses except for Kil'jaeden will be tested on Mythic difficulty as well.
Wowhead's modelviewer now supports extra 3D armor plates layered on top of the default armor pieces. For example, in the Demon Hunter Tier 20 Set, the gloves and kilt have special bulky armor pieces on top of the regular armor.
We have always included these details in our Tier previews but now they are visible as you mix and match pieces in the Dressing Room.

In this post we're previewing the Tier 20 Rogue set Fanged Slayer's Armor, based on .
This set has additional armor and gems on the chest, gloves, and boots - as well as finally a matching belt! The Mythic version also has more menacing details on the shoulders, as well as special glow effects on helm, chest, and shoulders.
