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.

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.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a mythic raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of three within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.
      We are always looking to add players with a friendly personality and lots of passion for the game. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 7/11 Mythic Antorus, Heroic AOTC.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid. We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders. You must be able to take constructive criticism and have ownership over your level of play, and be willing to put in the effort to be a contribution to the team.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for farming the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      Our roster is currently full, but if you are still interested you may fill out an application via the link below. 
      Interested? Next steps: 
      Please check out our team's wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit.

      And we now have the very first official hotfixes of the pre-expansion patch! We have a bunch of class fixes for various abilities that were either bugged or incorrectly converted, fixes for legacy content and Tomb of Sargeras bosses, as well as other stat squish issues in the open world, and finally, a whole lot of quest items that can again be looted and other quest fixes.

    • By Starym
      It seems 8.0.1 is one of the more unstable patches launched, as in addition to the significant server problems that plagued the US and OC launches there are also many more issues that still linger. After the known issues posted yesterday we have yet more getting addressed by Blizzard, but this time with some solutions as well.

      First off we have several suggestions on how to fix lost Mage Tower artifact appearances, as well as clarifications on the overall artifact transmogging system:
      Mage Tower Appearances (source)
      Before a hotfix that we made to the game on Tuesday, July 17 at 3:30 p.m. PDT, some players in the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand may have found that the Mage Tower Artifact appearance they thought they earned had gone missing. We have some suggestions for you, if you believe this to be the case.
      Check your quest logs.
      If you have either the scenario quest completed, or you’re on the final quest to return to Dalaran and talk to the Council of Six, you should be able to go turn it in and obtain the appearance.
      Go to The Violet Citadel.
      It’s possible that one of the Council of Six has the final mage tower quest available for you. Go to Dalaran, accept the quest, stand in the circle and have your weapon upgraded, and then complete the quest. This should award the appearance.
      We apologize for the confusion. Thank you very much!
       
      Artifact transmog (source)
      Since the Pre-Patch went live yesterday, we’ve seen some questions and concerns from players on several transmogrification issues. We’d like to elaborate on some details about how the system works:
      Transmogging an Artifact to look like a non-Artifact from your weapon appearances collection should work as it did before.
      You can now have a transmogrify vendor put an earned Artifact appearance on appropriate non-Artifact weapons belonging to characters who are of the same class and specialization as the character who earned the appearance.
      However, if you wish to apply an Artifact appearance to an Artifact, you must visit the Artifact Forge in your Class Hall, and your character is restricted to appearances that were earned on that character.
      Artifact appearances that come in pairs (main-hand + off-hand) cannot be separated when you’re using two items. If you apply the appearance of one of these to your main-hand item, your off-hand item will use the appearance of the other, and vice versa.
      Artifact appearances that come in pairs *can* be applied to two-hand weapons. A Shadow Priest can now make a staff look like Xal’atath, Blade of the Black Empire.
      Some Artifact appearances are so awesome that they can bypass restrictions on some weapon types. However, even though some restrictions have been lifted, other weapon restrictions remain. It is not intended that a melee weapon can be made to look like an Artifact bow or gun. Likewise, you can't make a bow/gun/wand look like an Artifact melee weapon.
      When doing transmogrification, you can select a slot to alter in the character pane on the left of the window, and then *right-click* on an appearance in the right pane of the window and use “transmogrify as”. This is especially useful when you visit the transmogrifier as a Feral or Guardian Druid.
      Thank you very much. We’ll continue to keep an eye on all of your questions and feedback!
      We then also have another list of common issues, some with explanations and solutions:
      List of common issues (source)
      GAMEPLAY: DIDN'T RECEIVE EXPECTED LOOT IN MYTHIC CACHE Known issue: Due to changes to the Mythic+ system in Battle for Azeroth, players will not receive their normal Mythic Cache loot and keystone this week. As this was unintended, we will be providing 1000 Wakening Essence as well as a Level 2 Keystone in the Mythic Cache for those who qualified for loot in the previous week. Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience!
      ELOTHIR DOESN'T SHOW UP FOR VARIOUS QUESTS Known issue: The Ancient Elothir does not spawn as required for a variety of quests, preventing players from completing the zone. We are looking to fix this issue as soon as possible.
      FULLSCREEN MODE UNAVAILABLE Not a bug: For compatibility reasons, the option to play in fullscreen has been removed from the game. Players may choose between playing in either windowed or fullscreen (windowed) mode.
      UNABLE TO CLAIM GIFTED BATTLE FOR AZEROTH KEY Under investigation: We have received reports that some players are unable to claim a gifted expansion. An investigation has been launched.
      MISSING EXTRA BAG SLOTS Under investigation: Some players that have both the Authenticator and SMS Protect enabled have reported missing the four extra bag slots. We are currently attempting to verify this issue.

      The official Patch 8.0.1 Patch Notes can be found here.
      Undocumented Changes in Patch 8.0.1
      High Warlord Naj'entus in Black Temple received a new model. Many old creature models have been updated, including vultures, and gorillas. The world map screen you see while taking a boat/zeppelin is shown in HD. Some faction leaders have new voicelines. Kael'thas Sunstrider in Tempest Keep is bald (bug) Portals to other continents now appear as blue circles on the map. Share The Love is no longer required for Glory of the Hero. Demon Hunters can now purchase Slayer's Tabard for 100 Gold in their Order Hall.  Legion treasures award experience. Blood/Void Elf stealth animations have been updated. Wrynn's Vanguard faction is no longer available with the removal of Ashran. Wrynn's Vanguard Tabard and the title have been removed as well.

      No more Battle Chests or purchasing previous expansions, all you need is an active subscription!
      Well, no one has to to buy base WoW anymore, ever! Everything you need to do to play up until the upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is an active subscription. No more battle chests and individual purchases, just pay that monthly fee and access the entire game as it is at the moment, with nothing missing until August 14th, when you'll have to buy BfA for the new content. Additional digital deluxe items from each expansion are available at the Blizzard shop individually, but it's now easier than ever to jump into the game and just start playing.
      Recruit a Friend has also been updated:
