Blackfang Battleweave


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.

    Only two things wrong with this. 1. The Color. Make it much darker! 2. Belf. Even Bloodfang looks shit on belfs ffs.

    Do. Not. Want.

    Well at least it looks better than the abomination that was t11, and we have transmog as an option for this. Time for another tier of content wearing t6 and dual legendaries perhaps? Though a different pair of legendaries this time around.

    Meh... Bloodfang (T2) is still bar FAR the best looking Rogue set in the game imo.

    Blizzard Finally understood that it doesn't take much to make a class look good and how they should. That is the closest i think they have ever been to looking like an actual Rogue. The outfit covers the face and is tight on the skin. The shoulders and the ears on the helm are a bit much but they look cool. I need to get back into raiding after college is over and during Winter break so i can get this one because it actually looks worth getting for look wise. Great Job with the Rogue gear Blizzard.

    Isn't that the wrong Tier-3 you've added? Pretty sure that's Tier-2.5

    This is the price you have to pay when you get a legendary

    First? Really?
    Druid one is the worst this far, closely followed by mage.

    Great. Rogues get to play Batman and get a class specific legendary while mages get a couple of flashlights stuck on their head and have to fight for the legendary that is OBVIOUSLY designed for them with hybrid classes.

    Its a good thing I am not going to Blizzcon. I would have to slap all the developers with a trout until they came to their senses...

    I don't know, I liked T4 the most.

    Bats ? Without the description I would have thought these were wolves ! °_° But ok. I really dont see batman in there, or any other DC hero or whatsoever. About the colour, just wait for the alternate sets. I think they will look better. Normally Im not saying this, but I really had to think of T10 mage set when I saw this.

    not the best rogue set but still cool , and in all honesty, the only rogue tier that actually looks like batman is T4 ^_^

    besides the shoulder/helm it looks like the green set from WOTLK you made from leather working.

    Bleh
