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.

    @ Eldrad: I like that edit too, and heroic could very well look like that.

    Probably just another jelly vanilla race player whose model looks horrible compared to Belfs let alone the goblins/worgen.

    Keep the red, change the green detail/flames to black or deep blue or violet with a whitish center and you have me sold. Love the helm to pieces. edit - just a pointer for designing sneaky gear for rogues: how do you expect someone to be sneaky when their shoulders are glowing?!

    With the normal colors they are using, this reminds me of those Death knight heroic pieces from ICC the color scheme is the same, not sure if they are using the same textures though, the only thing that looks really different is the shoulders helm and boots.

    I thought Druid tier 13 was the worst until I saw this. Blizzard is seriously dropping the ball left and right for AGI users in 4.3. Tho, the shaman set looks pretty bad ass, Druid and Rogue look like crap.

    Those shops make it look pretty decent actually, would actually use it.
    Since I guess we will be getting three different versions for this, one for loLFR easy mode, one normal and one heroic obviously, I just hope the normal and heroic versions look like and this, and the terrible red version gets dumped on the LFR gear.
