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.

    Played around with the Guild Wars Assassin Ebon Vanguard armor and added some Warcraft Tier 5 Death Mantle armor to it.I think Blizzard needs to make Rogue armor more simple,make armor grey or black and lose the partlicle effects.

    I think the shoulders could've done with more contrast. They really blend in to the arms visually. Also needs bat-nipples.
    You beat me to it .

    First a legendary and now this XD I love them, now all Blizzard needs to do is fix the fundamental flaws of the class (target switching, no burst and overall not very high damage) and I'll be a happy troll

    It looks like Spawn and Batman merged costumes... I'm okay with this. Makes me want to make a rogue, now I just need to see what the daggers look like.

    I'm sorry, but did you even read the description? They are bats, not snakes.

    Wow, finally some armor set of which I may not hide the helm piece again. Last time I didn't do this was when T8 has been around.

    I like the set, though I really hope that the shoulders won't shine as much as one may suppose..

    Everything looks bad on blood elves (at least it's my opinion). The shoulders never seem to fit them. I'll try to make it onto an undead body to see how it may look. Anyway, I like the set eventhough I'll hope for a recolor. Not a big fan of this pale red.

    Oh all the sets, Tier 2 is the only one that looks like a "rogue" to me.

    This looks way to much like T12 for my liking...Blizz really shouldve went ahead and did some kind of black dragon theme to go along with the new legendary daggers imo.

    Tier 2 and tier 6 got the best looks. Tier 5 could have been good "if" it had been black and red... but pink and gray.. COME ON SERIOUSLY... bad design. And it doesn't go with my engineer's shirt. >_>
