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.

      Shackled Ur'zul received a new color tint ever since we looked at Patch 7.3 mounts. The mount will be a 100% drop from Mythic Argus the Unmaker until next expansion.
      The 100% drop chance of Mythic mounts is always drastically reduced when a new expansion's released and the raid becomes trivial.

      A lot of dungeon and raid tuning today, as Blizzard look into the Cathedral of eternal Night, a bit more into Upper Karazhan and a lot more into Lower, as well as Harjatan and the Desolate Host in the Tomb.

      A first look at upcoming Antoran mounts from the new raid.
      Two new Antoran hounds were added in Patch 7.3 and they're sharing models with the Hounds of Sargeras boss encounter in Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Description
      Sargeras' own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow and flame.
      Antoran Charhound looks like Shatug and Antoran Gloomhound looks like Fharg.

      Images taken from our 7.3 boss models thread
      The mounts (or at least one of them) might have a low drop chance from Sargeras's dogs encounter in Antorus, just like Abyss Worm from Mistress Sass'zine.
