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.

      We're revisiting Pandaria in Patch 8.3, so Blizzard added a new soft pink recolor of the good old serpent mount to the game. The source of the mount is a placeholder and unknown for now.
      Chalcedony Cloud Serpent
      The gentle Chalcedony Cloud Serpents love to play in the petals that fall in the Arboretum, coloring their scales a soft pink hue.

      Hallow's End has arrived on live servers and there are no notable updates this year. The Headless Horseman's loot has been adjusted to item level 395. Check out our Hallow's End guide for more information about the event.
      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
      Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
      Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
      The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
      When: October 18–November 1
      Where: Trick-or-Treat throughout the inns of Azeroth, Northrend, Pandaria, Outland, Draenor, and the Broken Isles (Dalaran) for tasty treats and currency to buy Hallow’s End delights.
      All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
      It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 20-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added 2018 toy:
      Headless Horseman's Hearthstone Head to Val’sharah to undertake a quest that begins with the Hag of the Crooked Tree in Bradensbrook. Follow the tale through to its culmination and you’ll receive some Tricky Treats and a chance of receiving one of four utterly bewitching hats.
      Hat of the First Sister Hat of the Second Sister Hat of the Third Sister Hat of the Youngest Sister ACHIEVEMENTS
      There are a total of 21 achievements that can be earned during this event. Completing the Meta-Achievement, Hallowed Be Thy Name, rewards the title: The Hallowed.

      Ny'alotha, the Waking City comes with a raid skip and once you defeat the first boss, you'll receive the raid skip quest and must collect 4 Corrupted Flesh Samples from the raid's penultimate boss to gain access to the skip.
      Players on 8.3 PTR discovered that once you defeat Wrathion, you will receive the "Ny'alotha: MOTHER's Guidance" quest, which unlocks a raid skip, granted that you've defeated the raid's eleventh boss, Carapace of N'Zoth, four times. After that, you should be able to skip straight to Carapace of N'Zoth without having to deal with the rest of the bosses.
      Ny'alotha is a twelve-boss raid and it's a good thing that they decided to include a raid skip.

      Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello!
      Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
      Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
      Thank you very much!
