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.

    I like it. Lightweight like a rogue should be and I do like the helmet.

    That helm looks like a cross between batman and daredevil.

    The helm kind of reminds me of one of the warrior ones - the one with the horns. Tier 7 or whatever.

    "I'm Batman." I wonder what ability this is supposed to be based on.

    I'm glad they have used the male BE model instead of human this time around.

    It WILL look better on another race ( female bloodelf for example ) with a tabard and without the helmet!

    I proberly said "Eww. That one is ugly!" on every set now. But with tabard / without helmet it looks 10 times better.

    Honestly, am so glad I don't play a rogue or have a rogue alt....looks pretty bad imo, but could be caused by the male blood elf in the picture....

    Nice set!(and on the day I said id make a rogue!) Also like the poison coming out of the shoulders and the fact that the helm has a stealthy facemask this time!

    meh its ok as usual helm and shoulders have decent detail while the rest of the gear is colored in with the same pattern using the paint bucket tool....
