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.

      More Dragonflight hotfixes have arrived, with many class, item, pvp and quest fixes, including the lost UI settings, incorrect gear rewards in War Mode, a lowering of Cobalt Assembly reputation item drops and plenty more!
      November 30 (Source)

Death Knight Blood Fixed an issue with Tightening Grasp granting 10% increased damage instead of the intended 5%. Frost Fixed an issue where Avalanche would not always deal damage when Howling Blast consumes Rime.

Druid Balance Fixed an issue where Starlord could not reach 3 stacks. Guardian Fixed an issue where Tireless Pursuit would not be applied after leaving Travel Form. Monk Windwalker Fixed an issue where the Touch of Death effect of Fatal Flying Guillotine was always an Improved Touch of Death . This tooltip will be clarified in a later update. Paladin Fixed an issue causing Sanctified Ground to incorrectly persist. Warlock Demonology Fixed an issue where Guillotine could be cast without a Felguard active. Fixed an issue where Wrathguard was not correctly applying Infernal Command. Dungeons and Raids

      Blizzard have announced they will be disabling loot drops and reputation gains from all Dragon Isles rare mobs due to the daily limit not working properly. They hope to fix the bug and reinstante loot and reputation within the next few hours.
      Rare Drops (Source)
      With a temporary hotfix, we recently made it so that all rare enemies in the Dragon Isles, such as Cinta the Forgotten, Windseeker Avash, and Drakewing do not drop loot or reputation. We’re working on a bug that’s causing drops from rare enemies to disobey the daily loot lockout.
      We expect to have that bug fixed in the next few hours, and at that time, we’ll turn their drops back on, and they should drop their goods on a daily basis going forward.
      Thank you for your understanding.

      While there are plenty of issues that come along with a new expansion launch, they tend to be new content-related, but luckily for us, those that aren't are usually very hilarious, and Dragonflight did not disappoint in that department.
      Falconmind managed to get a full bag of basic Hearthstones, as new ones just kept appearing every time they re-bound their inn location! Unfortunately they're all on the same cooldown...

      We have a new form of PvP that arrived in Dragonflight, and it's some glorious dogfight Top Gun action! In case you weren't aware, one of the Dragonriding talents allows you to dismount other players (in War Mode) and Pige0nYT has now demonstrated it!
      The talent in question is Airborne Tumbling and it allows Whirling Surge to become the ultimate aerial weapon - if you can get close enough, that is. As mentioned in the comments this particular talent has some players simply turning War Mode off, but as you can see it's a tricky one to pull off, so the dangers aren't quite that high (but maybe be ore aware of your surroundings if you're playing War Mode anyway).
      Also, clearly the next step here is:
      You can check out our Dragonriding guides for all the talent options here.

      Update: it seems Monkeylol was actually the World 2nd/West first, getting that final ding ahead of Chaoswithin, who we previously reported was 2nd. Thanks to Stensture for the heads up.
      ____________________________________________
      Original post:
      Well that was fast (although not quite as fast as expected due to the launch issues)! We already have our first max-level character in Dragonflight, as Korean players Adelio and his group managed to gain those 10 new levels as if it was nothing (as reported by Method's stream event). With some really long loading screens for the US and EU side of the launch, many players managed to actually get to the Dragon Isles instantly and start leveling there and while Korean servers also had some issues, the World First group were only affected by a small boat wait.

      As you can see that final ding came from some crafting XP and a quest turn-in, but Adelio and two other players from their group were one of the lucky players to get to the Isles quickly, despite having to wait some 7 minutes for the boat, and just proceeded to speed level the quests and get those World Firsts!
      There were many tactics to getting to max (with pre-completed quests at the ready being standard), from running Torghast or even island expeditions, players heading to Deepholm, but crafting XP turned out to be the key point, as players did their crafting at different times, complementing whichever other strategy they were using. In the end it was a "regular" speed run of the Dragon Isles quest that won the day, so congratulations to Adelio and their group! 
      Over on the West side we have Chaoswithin grabbing the local first level 70 a short while ago as well, and there are around 5-7 players currently level 70 right now! Interestingly Echo's Gingi actually managed to get to 70 in around an hour and a half, as it took him a long time to log in and get past the loading screen.
      You can check out the longer run up to the World First max level for the new expasion, with the crafting part included as well:
