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.

    @ EldradThat's a brilliant colour combination! I like it way better than the original. Let's hope we can get at least one model which looks like this.Why have they not added the right head piece on the tier 7.5 pic? They have forgotten to replace the tier 7 with the tier 7.5 mask...Just look at my avatar for comparison.

    This is the tier rogues deserve, not the one they need.

    There better be a high level black coloured cloak or 1.5 million rogues will be raging in 3 months.

    Shoulder style is not so great, also color scheme could do some work, like, something grey 'n shadowy

    Now they only need to add some POWs and KAPOWs as visual effects and NANANANANANANANA instead of the slicing sound as sound effect to the legendary daggers. That would be legendary indeed.

    Well... I'm glad I don't play a Rogue. That's just awful. But oh well, Transmog anyway.

    Why do people sing the old shitty adam wesr batman song and not the batman animated series theme song. Most of you probably dont even remember adam west's batman.

    What the fu*k is going on with those shoulders? I don't want to look like my shoulders are throwing up.Atleast the idea of Rogue Legendaries compensates a bit, and also Transmog

    That is one of the most ugliest set of armor I've ever seen. I swear I wanna know whats going through the WoW armor designers' heads when they were creating this abomination. And I also want to slap them.

    Wow the bottom of the helm has been used for other models. It just looks so....boring. And plain. Rogue gear is usually the best. This is just stepping down.

    At least druid set looks better. Even the mage set except the flashlights.

    If I was rogue I would be thinking "-Is this how Blizzard see's my class? Is this actually THE rogue signature in world of warcraft, if so how does legendary quest gonna look "rogue'ish"? Talk to Alfred in the cave, drive a batmobile and pickpocket thieves on the fly?" This set looks more like Deathknight to me with bat theme, but who am I to know? Im sure Paladin set is gonna look terrible aswell, they cant ever make 2 good sets in a row, but ofc I would be scared also if I knew what kind of people who judge my work. "Gimme Theme based JUDGE DREAD armor for paladin so I can ride around with my motorcycle being totally awsome and all, please!" /Hugs /pat rogues, dont worry Joker themed DKs next

    You could always mog it to a helm that you do like instead of hiding it.
