Blackfang Battleweave


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.

    Nothing beats bloodfang, this set should hunter or warlock, not rogue. This doesnt look like anything realy -.-Worst set of all imo, especially when all the other classes look great

    The Tier sets are suppose to be representative of something specific for the class in Cataclysm. At least, that what's Blizzard said they are modeling them after. For example, Wild Mushroom for Druids and Time Warp for Mages. What is this suppose to represent in Cataclysm? I don't remember anything major happening with bats...and it doesn't look like the 4.3 patch will have anything to do with them either, but I could be wrong.

    I like the set. Definitely hope we do get a darker version though, maybe as heroic or LFR.

    Hmm, fairly underwhelmed. It lacks the "I'm going to ****ing shank you" edge good Rogue tiers have and seems sort of bland.

    Maybe it's just the blood elf though. You aren't going to find any trace of a bad ass in a male blood elf.

    T4 looks more like Nightwing. T5 is definitely Skeletor.

    Not a fan of the rogue T13 at all.

    /pray that Paladin gear is not a disappointment

    I'm content. Not happy. Content. This could've ended up looking much worse... (this t11 Taliban outfit or t13 mage)...

    That set is really inspired in BC first dungeon set, and boots has some style also from bc set from T6.5, this smells bad.

    would be more appealing if the set were shown on a human instead of a blood elf because of the blood elves stand, it makes it look homo. lol

    That is by far the best looking rogue set to date.. And it's the only rogue-like set they have had sinec T2.

    first thought in my head on seeing this set... I AM THE NIGHT So, are Paladins getting a Robin set?

    It isn't bad, but I still will most likely transmog this set into T2 or 7.5

    I now fear what they will do to hunters T13.

    Stitched together, who would have guessed - but I think this one is ok.

    First? Really? Druid one is the worst this far, closely followed by mage.
    I thought the druid set was incredibly detailed and very "druidy", and the mage set impressed me because it was all steampunk, which is just awesome, and honestly shows some creativity on the behalf of the art team, which is better than "SKULLSSKULLSSKULLS"
