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.

    Good luck on downing the bosses with only healers and tanks...

    ...and in addition, we are either getting trolled or Blizzard has really lost it, giving a legendary exclusive to the one class that is sneakiest, slimiest, non-engaging(flee the warzone if things get tight type)...a class that is actually is least relevant to warcraft as them being the least relevant to warfare getting-exclusively is just non-sense, I'm hoping we are getting trolled...

    Oh god. I'm not too familiar with rogues but i think a dagger is only good for Mutilate and Subtlety? So they're making a legendary for 2 out of 30 specs in-game? Oh god.

    I know they said "limited class restriction" or some sh*t like that but... no...

The Looking for Raid tool will only work for 25 man raids, not 10 man. Can't make up their mind whether they want to promote 10 or 25mans...

Unnecessary This will introduce players to the content and mechanics of the fights so that they are more prepared for an actual raid. Unnecessary. People who need help at the current difficulty level of raids have no business raiding at all. The new five mans will have tighter story integration with the Deathwing Raid than Icecrown Heroics did. Poaching from swtor. Trying to anyways. The Dragonflights will work together to help take down Deathwing. More quests! YAY! Deathwing's random zone burning will continue at least until the end of Patch 4.3. No one cared after the first week. They might be talking about Pandas at Blizzcon. ...when you know the game has officially gone to shit.
    ...and the community goes even more to shit.
    Go play another game. You're one of them. You're one of the whiners that are the reason the devs don't know which playerbase to target. They don't stick to plans because people like you bitch and moan until they get sick of it and change shit, and then you bitch and moan some more at the changes because "they aren't good enough". Shut. Up. Just shut up and go.

    I have a tank, I have 2 healers, I main as a Warlock. This is one of the most ignorant posts I've ever seen, every single role is necessary and important. The goal of dps is to kill the boss, you walk into a 10man raid with 2 tanks and 8 healers or a 25man raid with maybe 3 tanks and 22 healers and you'll live until the enrage timer sure, but the boss won't die. Get off your horse ty.

    Somehow I feel that it'll be bis for hunters (just because of the stat(Yes, I know about the enchants)) and shammies (the damage must be of an other world, so yeah..)

    Anyone feel if this Legendary information is correct and true that there is a bias towards melee in the area of Legendaries?

    I care about your class. You are the spec that gives out buffs to enhance the raid right, or something....

    Always thought the next legendary should be an Agility 1H Axe, 1H Mace, or Fist. Still do.

    Dagger would be a big mistake, but Blizzard still has plenty of time to change their minds.

    This seems so incredibly fake.
    If it isn't, I'm really disappointed. The Art team mentioned that with Legendaries they liked to work with big models to make it looks really exciting which is why a Legendary Dagger wasn't likely.

    All dps casters are capeable of using a staff designed for dps

    How many can use daggers and benefit greatly from it compared to how many meeles there are?
