A "bat-themed" armor set for rogues seems like a no-brainer, but we were careful to skirt the more obvious inspirations. World of Warcraft often makes playful references to pop culture, but it’s important -- particularly with player gear -- that what we create has integrity within our universe. Rogues look good in close-fitting masks, collars, and cowls rather than elaborate armored helms. It also helps reinforce the rogue's sneaky silhouette if the shoulder pads have a streamlined shape... even if that shape has sharp, bladed details.

    Every new tier I see makes me all the more depressed about the Mage tier. Ah well, thats what transmog is there for I guess.

    I so disagree with you. Good that beauty lies in The eyes of the beholder.

    Like the idea, not the realization. I barely can see the bat head and wings on shoulders. Had to look really really hard to distinguish.

    The helmet will look goddamn awful on Goblins though.

    At first I was all like: "This looks horrible" And then I noticed all sets look terrible on a belf male.

    I like the "stapled together" look.

    Its alright. better than the t12 set, worse than the t11. among all the tiersets displayed I'd rank it somewhere between rank 4 and 7ish...

    t8 is still my fav

    Sorry, but that is ugly, it's part Death Knight with the helm, and batman as others pointed out. The colour is nasty, go a bit darker, use dark blue/red or black, and i'd be liking it a little more. But for now, i'm not a fan.

    Kinda what I was thinking. The set looks awesome, rogues must be happy. The shoulders on the other hand. It does fit every other tier shoulder though, being bigger then actually nesescary. Not so big fan of the shoulders, wasted space. Also they look more hunter-ish and a rip off from the shaman tier 2 set.

    This is like a mutant baby between Rogue T6 and Warlock T2. Horrible, thank god transmogrify is coming out with this.

    My thought, as well. It will look better on literally every other race/gender combo rogues can be.

    Even then, it's probably bottom half of rogue tier designs, but we have the legendary, so I don't mind.

    Everything looks pretty lame except the shoulders ( tier 5 you will be missed
