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.

    Hmm, maybe I should start playing on my rogue alt again ^^ Depends on how pala tier turns out though, prefer healing over mindless dpsing a boss where I only see the damn feets of the one I'm killing >.<

    If you don't know the difference, gtfo of Fantasy RPG land.
    Tier 5 set says hi.Also I said Assasin not Ninja try again.And the rogue class is just that.
    Also you tell me what most of the later Tier armor Blizzard has created for the Rogue has to do with the Rogue class.Classes that use stealth do not have flashy lights all over them.

    That helm is the best helm I've seen. Those shoulders are not. How in the world are shoulders that stick that far out with venom coming out, says anything about rogues?

    Usually when a new tier comes out I'll give blizz the benefit of the doubt and say the set looks good, but I have never seen such a retarded set in my life...what a fail.

    WTH nothing about the Rogue Tier 13 says rogue. It has not character of its own, no sense of anything other than they did a quick cut past and a little artwork to produce the set. LAME

    Not bad, but who the heck decided that the picture would feature a blood elf? Ugliest race in the game, nothing looks good on them.

    What is dis sh*t I don't even... And here I was hoping to decide whether to finally go back to my rogue or not... but instead I'm left asking which one is worse, the Warrior's or the Rogue's set. I can only hope both fit better on orcs/goblins, 'cause DAMN they be ugly as f*ck on Humans.

    Don't really like the set to be honest. But then again I hate rogues in general. Sneaky backstabbing bastards...

    Why does Blizzard feel that rogues need to have bright colors and flash on their armor. I would think being a rogue you would want to have a more subdued darker colors that would blend in with the shadows they sneak around in.Just like the ones Eldrad posted look so much better and seem more rogue like to me.

    I tried to fit it in an undead body and well, put it in some wow background to make it look more normal.
    Add in some light effects, and I'm starting to like it a bit more.
    Still hoping for the recolor (something like Eldrad could be fine), as I said, not fan of the pale red.

    What you need to be happy: 1) Create a troll rogue 2) Name him "Batmon" 3) Farm this set ps: I dont really think it looks anything like batman.
