New to Hockey Ultimate Team in NHL 17 are Limited Time Sets. Limited Time Sets will allow you to unlock special items by completing the sets using limited time collectables that you can find in special packs throughout the event.
Within each Limited Time Set there are Novice, Epic, and Master sets that will allow you to trade in your collectables for packs, players, or special edition player items.
The first Limited Time Set in NHL 17 is the World Cup of Hockey set. Available from September 17th to October 1st, the World Cup of Hockey set contains seven subsets. Five of these sets feature special edition World Cup of Hockey player items that can only be unlocked through the World Cup of Hockey set. Read below to find out what they are, what they unlock, and how to unlock them.
In the Novice set, you can trade in a collectable for either a random 88 overall rare gold player or a special World Cup of Hockey pack.
There are four Epic sets for the World Cup of Hockey set. In these sets, you can unlock a 92 overall special edition World Cup of Hockey player items. To unlock one of these 92 overalls, you need to have two specific World Cup of Hockey collectables and 10 Gold Collectables.
The four Epic Sets are:
• 92 OVR Curtis Joseph – WCOH Team Canada Collectable + WCOH Team Russia Collectable + 10 Gold Collectables
• 92 OVR Mike Modano – WCOH Team USA Collectable + WCOH Team Czech Republic Collectable + 10 Gold Collectables
• 92 OVR Doug Gilmour – WCOH Team NA Collectable + WCOH Team Europe Collectable + 10 Gold Collectables
• 92 OVR Jari Kurri – WCOH Team Sweden Collectable + WCOH Team Finland Collectable + 10 Gold
The Epic sets can only be completed once, but when you complete each set you will also unlock a Master Set Collectable. The Master Collectables can be used to unlock the Master Set.
The Master Set is the toughest set to complete, and with it comes a hefty reward. To complete the Master set, you need to complete all four of the Epic Sets to get the 4 Master Collectables along with 8 Carbon Collectables. Once you have all the items needed, you can then use them to unlock a 96 overall World Cup of Hockey Pavel Bure player item. Like the Epic sets, you can only complete the Master set once.
Remember, the World Cup of Hockey sets are only available from September 17th to October 1st. Are you ready to master the World Cup of Hockey and hunt down the Russian Rocket?
