July starts off in Azeroth with bursts of flying color throughout the capital cities as the Midsummer Fire Festival comes to a close. While the holiday may be ending, the work within the Tomb of Sargeras continues this month as raiders continue to plumb its danger-filled depths. But, don’t worry. It won’t all be serious business when the main auction houses in Orgrimmar and Stormwind set up Azeroth’s biggest dance parties.

This Month: Fashion is Key in the Tomb of Sargeras
With more raiders every week this month heading deeper into the Tomb of Sargeras, we thought we’d cast our eye on the new armor sets within this dungeon. From Raid Finder to Mythic, you can look your very best while slaying the forces of the Burning Legion with these prêt-à-porter sets. We’ve gone into the dressing room and pulled out one iconic set from each armor class to show you the possibilities.
If you’re not quite ready to head into the Tomb, but still want the incredibly stylish look, then you’re in luck! This month provides a great opportunity to collect the armor set from within the dark halls of the Black Temple*. Collect any set and you’ll earn the Black is the New Black Achievement.
*Not all items of the 5-piece set found within the Black Temple (3/5). A trip to Hyjal Summit highly recommended (2/5) to complete your look. Ask for Tydormu for more shopping options. Dry clean only. Light iron. No Starch. All sales (mostly) final.
