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.

    Again a set that looks pretty nice compared to recent previous tiers. Not as spectacularly awesome as some of the other T13, but still well above average.The most striking thing in this post is how incredibly ridiculously pathetic rogue T11 looks. Possibly the worst tier ever across any class.

    It is in the game, it's just not available now but it didn't disappear. There are still players that have it so it's still an asset that can be seen to this day.

    A RED BATMAN ?! looks more like Daredevil if you ask me ?! They could have made the armor darker looking , like something around gray or even Black ! whats wrong with a fcking Black batman ?! and those shoulders.... that green thingy spilling out of them , I so wish it was a different color xP Dark blood Red or atleast Black :|

    Actually... I did think it looks AWFUL... but now im holding out hopes for some good colour schemes. I tried some myself in Photoshop, and I think with a non-blue-quality looking colour scheme it could be good.

    LMFAO!!!. It looks fucking horrible. My god, so far the only impressive t13 has been warrior. I Swear if paladin and DK aren't at least a fraction of the warrior's, I'm going to be severely pissed.

    If you think that's too colourful, go check out the T13 warlock set XD
    But you're right on the colours though. Red and green doesnt really fit together.
    Let's wait for the colour alternatives.

    To hell with the rest of of the armor, just give me the helmet with a black / blue tint and I'll be happy.

    Lol at the people complaining about the Belf model. Everything looks better on the male Belf; I feel bad for the humans, gnomes, and dwarves who will be wearing this. Actually I just feel bad for them in general.

    ^ This, I think all there good modelers have transferred over onto there new mmo and left there "newbie" mod's to handle the job. I was really expecting something REALLY epic from the rogue T13 to tell you the truth.

    And how exactly do they ruin it? With their normal proportions and straight posture? Please enlighten us.

    I like the edit. If it were colored like this, it wouldn't be half bad, except looking a bit like last tier.
