MMO-Champion - Rogue Legendary Dagger and Patch 4.3 Interviews, Comics
Update #2 - We mirrored the interview in this post if you want to check it out.
Update - Looks like the escapist took the article down, probably went up earlier than expected.

Rogue Legendary and Patch 4.3
Another interview showed up today in The Escapist. The most important part is the Rogue Legendary dagger and new raid level difficulty, but the important points are all below.


  • Rogues will get a legendary dagger and exciting quest line to go with it. The lore for the dagger has not been decided upon yet.
  • Looking for Raid tool raids will be easier than normal raids using a new level of difficulty (Looking For Raid).
  • The Looking for Raid tool will only work for 25 man raids, not 10 man.
  • Players will get different achievements and loot from doing Random Raid mode, no normal mode achievements or perks will be gained.
  • This will introduce players to the content and mechanics of the fights so that they are more prepared for an actual raid.
  • The new five mans will have tighter story integration with the Deathwing Raid than Icecrown Heroics did.
  • The Dragonflights will work together to help take down Deathwing.
  • Deathwing's random zone burning will continue at least until the end of Patch 4.3.
  • They might be talking about Pandas at Blizzcon.

    Part of me is thrilled. The other part is pissed for having to go Assassination again. =p I hope they change their mind and make a Combat weapon, that way they would make shammies happy too.

    ...I am officially ditching feral druid for my rogue now. Legendary ftw!

    I said it before, and I'll say it again.DPS does not deserve any Legendaries whatsoever. At all. Give them to the Healers and the Tanks. They are the ones keeping the raid alive, and thus they are the ones who can use the bonus.The fact that Blizzard does not understand this astounds me to this day.

    Take this all back. This all smells like fishy BS to me. Fishy BS. I'll wait till an OFFICAL Blizzard annoucement. This doesn't make sense, and is out of Context.

    "Tito: Do you know what it's called yet?

    Brack: We do not?

    Tito: How does it fit into the lore?

    Brack: We haven't decided on the name and how it's going to work, we just know that we really want a legendary weapon to come out of this tier and we really want it to be a rogue dagger. That's really all we know at this point. As time goes on we get a lot more lore, a lot more story, an "in" to the creation of all the legendary weapons. We really did a lot with the legendary axe that you got out of Lich King and then we've had other legendaries with the Cataclysm tiers that have had these storylines, we're hoping this one's going to be the most exciting, the most epic legendary quest line."

    Quote from that article. Really doesn't fit Blizzard's style, not knowing anything about the reasoning behind a legendary at this stage? And comparing to "other legendaries with Cataclysm?" Someones having a good troll

    I play a tank, and I will say you and your "WE DESERVE MORE THAN THE REST" mentality is retarded.

    I don't play feral on my druid, but this is ridiculous. Could it be possible to give a class anymore shafting?

    Try clicking on the link to the interview article, its '404'. Tells me it was either a complete mistake, or someone was trying to bait everyone into believing they would actually make a legendary for only 1 class.

    Daggers gonna have a 2.60+ speed so shamans can use it too. Watch. It'll happen.

    Don't have much of a problem with a dps legendary, it just seems odd to be making one specifically for one class when up to this point several classes were capable of using it.

    To hell with ferals and enhancement.While we're at it, to hell with anonymously grouping together with people you'll never see or talk to ever again, i.e. people not on your server. F that.

    uh and ferals never get a legendary? cute. why should you get one, no one would see it anyway!

    give me my offhand legendary! and yes, we DO deserve it, every other class had way more than us poor poor rogues!

    *off to prepare his ninja plans*


    ps: right, blizz surely got that copyrights for nothing, doubt they will give us pandaren, they just have too much money and wanted to get a new trademark for them, sounds logical to me

    pps: NOT!
