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.

    Hardcore raiders are comparable to hipsters....once raiding goes mainstream it stops making them feel special.

    I dont get all the rogue complaints for no legendary love. Thunderfury was for rogues, Warglaives (probably the most badass legendary) were for rogues, the Kil'Jaeden bow, if no hunter present in raid, could be rogue-ish, and now a dagger.

    Just wait until this LFR function is in.You'll be in the middle of the entrance after getting a group, and some random guy will say "Link achievement else votekick!". If you don't have the achievement, you'll be votekicked by random guy and his friends who he joined LFR with.Oh WoW, how I love your community.

    Actually, it mentions nothing about the loot being different. Only the difficulty and the achievements...

    My theory is it will either have a) the same quality loot as normal 25 man or b) 10man ilevels.

    Although I like the fact that my rogue can now get a legendary dagger. I kinda feel they screwed up the LFR finder. I mean really, easier then normal raiding, different loot, AND only on 25 man? Comeon blizzard, I might as well keep pugging the raids with my alts on my server since they're easy enough to do as it is : /

    Check the original interview, it indeed says different loot level

    all I know is, that if rogues do indeed get a legendary, I'm quitting PvP. forever. No one wants to fight a shadow RMP with 3 legendaries. NOT COOL

    Sure, we could use Thunderfury, but I'm willing to bet the amount of guilds that gave it to a rogue first, were slim to none. Warglaives were almost the same in unless you were a prominent figure in your guild, most warriors got it before rogues. If it even dropped. As for the bow? Wee a stat stick...

    All people do is talk shit about rogues. All the time. We're the scum of the game to the entire community.

    If this is true, all you haters can go suck it.

    I'm curious why people are complaining "They've never made a legendary for MY class!"
    Rag Hammer = Anyone who can 2h Warrior, DK, Pally, Druid (back then, shams could as well)
    Thunderfury = Rogue, Warrior (No class req. now though)
    Atiesh = Mage, Druid, Priest, Warlock
    Thor'idal = Hunter (though not class restricted technically)
    Warglaives = DK, Rogue, Warrior
    Val'anyr = Priest, Pally, Sham, Druid (basically anyone who could heal)
    Shadowmourne = Pally, DK, Warrior
    Dragonwrath = Mage, Druid, Priest, Warlock (though not class restricted technically)
    So unless I'm missing something, EVERY SINGLE CLASS has had at LEAST one legendary. So quit your whining. They can't make legendaries for every class and every spec in every expansion, so deal with what you get.

    This is ridiculous.... It's like a Dungeon Finder and their loots... if it's different from Raid Looting, then we will have ANOTHER thing to do before raiding (I see many ppl asking for at least FULL LFR items lol) that's not right at all...

    To be honest... Blizzard shouldn't even bother for this...

    I thought this was coming for players with no time for COREs with demanding time, but that would be able (with much more sacrifice and patience) to get their so desired items to look like that HARDCORE players that raids and get all the items first, to feel a little less SUBJUGATED... but what they'll do is just make people without time look pathetic for having items from LFR instead of making the items the same of the normal Raids, but just with less drop chance, lol I don't know... really, it's not the way me and my friends were asking for....

    The same way nerfing heroics did to normal raiding.

    "WE WANTZ MOAR BLIZAARD! ME PAYZ FOR FUUL NEOT LOW LEVELZ LOOTZ".

    Is there really someone thinking that ppl will learn how to raid with 24 other bad players that are only there for fast loot?

    Just as a little trivia, both Thunderfury and the Warglaives were for COMBAT Rogues. Assassination rogues have gotten 0 legendaries so far, while feral druids and enhancement shamans have gotten Hand of Sulfuras as a legendary (enhancement shamans didn't use 2 1-handers back then).

    They do, there called Sub rogues! Trololol.

    I hope the 1st legendary in next Xpack is feral based...

    I'm sorry, what do you use if your offhand as combat?

    Offhand legendary does seem ridiculous though. Hey maybe Combat Dags would make a comeback.

    dude don't even count the hand for us, it wasn't even that "legendary" when it was released.
