Love this set, but i feel like it is highly themed for Outlaw :)

The 4pc bonus looks cool too, but what does it give when you are specced into SnD?

Well, 7.2 kinda made me quit wow for awhile... Looking at this... ermm... I honestly don't know... mess?.. Not regretting it... I would have been furious... Robin Hood? Really? REALLY? Did they mix up the rogue and the hunter armor by mistake?

Robin Hood is a heroic outlaw in English folklore who, according to legend, was a highly skilled archer and swordsman.

Always that one guy that has to mess up the photo by walking/running between the model and the camera.  Yeah i'm looking at you Arnzul.  Hilarious.

This is probably more fitting than i'm willing to accept. :p However, IMO, it still looks like complete trash :P

Am I the only one who actually likes this Robin Hood-esque set? It is by far one of the most original designs ever conceived in WoW, and finally moves away from that concept of hooded stealth dude we always see for Rogues, to the point that all Sets look pretty much the same.

The shoulders are a bit off, though, should be something more fitting. Maybe something like this or this.

Shoulders aside, I love this set. It's a nice breakaway from the whole ninja/executioner theme the rogue seems to have. All of the rogue sets these past few expansions have looked like complete garbage and the last appealing set, for me, was T9 Alliance (ToC).

I'm with you there! Van Cleef's Battlegear is my favorite Rogue set, and it is even one of Valeera's Master Skin recolors in Heroes of the Storm.

I myself love the Bloodborne-esque aesthetic - it's definitely more Outlaw themed than the others, but it's nice to have something themed around Outlaw rather than themed around the others, which are pretty much every prior tier set at this point.

With a bit of mogging around to get some slightly better pieces for some parts, I imagine it'll look really good on some rogues.

The set bonuses seem interesting enough - still wish we had a few options each tier to mix and match set bonuses, though.

For a class that's had Pickpocketing have it's own threads this expansion, you folks are judgemental over one of the most aesthetically detailed and pleasing sets. Outlaws  besides the Robin Hood stereotype wore anything they could get their hands on; this set actually reminds me of Assassin's Creed and the Thieves Guild of Discworld with the flamboyance and making underhand tactics of poison, stabbing people in the back, calculated murder and making common crimes of stealing and wanton violence into an art. It's perfect for the fantasy, even if I do find myself agreeing that Blizzard is themselves somewhat too smitten with their work on Outlaw :P

Blizzard does generally want us to look forward though, rather than mix and matching old gear with new stuff.

I'm more saying, multiple tier sets per tier, so all new stuff, just options instead of a tier set that is either pretty great or exceptionally medicore.

Ah, I see what you mean. Where you can essentially build your own tier set from a set of options?

Yeah, basically something along those lines - just would make it feel like equipment actually has some more decisions than stats.

It would be a nice addition to also allow you to almost... specify your tier set based on how you play, where they give an effect and you fill in the blank that is the ability name/s.

      With a fair amount of game adaptations heading over to Netflix in TV show form, the most recent and significant being the Witcher, Str1der has taken it upon himself to make a trailer for what a World of Warcraft show might look like. With the Warcraft movie not having done so well and having somewhat deviated from the original lore (although, so has the game itself at this point), it would really be a nice thing to see all the ancillary content featured in novels and comics etc. brought together in TV show format.
      The trailer is pretty well put together, however the choice of the song "Human" is clearly Alliance-favoritism and wholly inappropriate, therefore we all need to boycott it!!11 (For those of you that are sensitive to the faction allegiances, well, first of all, what's wrong with you, and second, that was a joke.)
      My personal favorite is when Illidan shows up and the song goes "some people have real problems", which is perhaps one of the most accurate song to scene pairings in the history of trailers.
      So, what do you think of the trailer and the idea of a Netflix WoW show? Should it focus on present day Azeroth and follow the expansions to give us a better understanding of the characters we interact with, or would you prefer it to start from the very beginning and eventually catch up?

      Placeholder for tweet 1071167789354774528 Currently, we don't know how the mount works but there's an interesting spell "Joined Hivemind" related to it that suggests multiple passengers and each passenger increases its mounted speed by 10%.

      Hi everyone. You might want to know that although there are already many Discord servers out there related to classic wow, there is a more local one specifically for Europe, with already nearly 400 members. Feel free to join fellow european classic lovers and vanilla old-timers while waiting for summer!  (https://discord.gg/SdVt9zN)

      World of Warcraft's third expansion was released on this day 8 years ago.
      Deathwing transformed Azeroth forever as we know it. In Cataclysm, the whole world burned under the shadow of his wings and the expansion went live on December 7, 2010.
      Patch 4.1: Rise of the Zandalari
      The first major content patch of the expansion was released on April 26, 2011 and brought the reopening of Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub. While Amani War Bear was removed from the game, players can still obtain a recolor of the mount (Amani Battle Bear) to this day.
      Patch 4.2: Rage of the Firelands
      The second Cataclysm patch went live on June 28, 2011 and included Firelands, a new raid with Ragnaros as the final boss, a new daily quest hub (Molten Front) and Dungeon Journal. Interesting loot from the Firelands includes Smoldering Egg of Millagazor that has a small chance to drop from Heroic Ragnaros, Flametalon of Alysrazor which drops from Alysrazor and Fandral's Flamescythe from Staghelm that gives Druid cats a fiery appearance.
      Patch 4.3: Hour of Twilight
      The final major content patch went live on November 29, 2011. Three new 5-player dungeons were released (Hour of Twilight, End Time, Well of Eternity). In terms of system updates, Raid Finder, Void Storage and Transmogrification were added to the game. The final raid Dragon Soul featured Deathwing as the final boss. Interesting drops include Reins of the Blazing Drake, Life-Binder's Handmaiden off Deathwing and Experiment 12-B from Ultraxion.
