For a time, this armor set fully embodied what it meant to be a dark assassin in World of Warcraft. It has a black and red color scheme, masked hood, and spike cauldrons that emit a dark aura.
It may be difficult to find an appropriate weapon to match the violet color scheme, but the Mythic recolor of the Bloodstained Ritual Theme comes pretty close. It comes with a unique, Rennaissance-era feathered hat, a large collar, a set of golden armor plates on the hands and knees, and a collection of extra blades on the chest and belt.
The set also includes large, bulky shoulder pieces, but they tend to clip with the oversized collar. Combine it with the Portal Keeper's Cincture from An torus and Vile Drifter's Foot pads from Matron Fortuna in her greater invasion point for the complete look.
The pieces in this set include the MANA Saber Hide Hood as a random world drop in Legion, Ancient Spell cloak of the Highborn from Doom Lord Kazakh in Hellfire Peninsula, and the Headhunter's Mitts and Slippers which both drop from Salvador dungeons. Purchase the base pieces of the set from the rogue vendor in Ice crown Citadel, then run the heroic version of the raid for Vanquisher's Marks of Sanctification.
For an extra pop, go for a weapon that really stands out such as the Shard of Azimuth, a glowing green blade that drops from Lillian in Black Temple. The eyes glow in an icy blue light while a black fog emits from the shoulder pieces.
Each piece is purchasable from the Keeper of SHA'taxi Artifacts in either the Alder or Screen hubs of Saturate City for Fallen Champion tokens from raids. For the full look, go for the Girdle of Treachery from the Echo of Median and the Rapscallion Boots from the Shade of Ran, both in Marathon.
A set like this requires a weapon that looks just as dark and menacing, and the heroic recolor of the Elect rowing Dagger is a great option. For the full collection, obtain the Cinch of Sizzling Flesh from Growth and the Escape Pathfinders from the Fallen Avatar, both in Tomb of Sarges.
One of the standouts for rogues from the Mists of Mandarin sets is the heroic recolor of the Barbed Assassin Battle gear. The shoulders are adorned with giant spikes and the set includes a menacing facemask, making the wearer seem like a dangerous threat.
In the shoulders, helm, gloves, and belt exist small windows of glowing, blue energy, evoking the ancient past of the Mogul and the Andean. Some pieces drop from bosses on the Timeless Isle while others are bought from armor vendors at the Horde and Alliance Shrines.
The hood comes with a metallic skull mask with glowing pink eyes which resonate through other pieces of the set. Each piece of the Death mantle set is earned from Vanquished Champion tokens from various bosses within Serpent shrine Cavern and The Eye in The Burning Crusade.
Since the textures show their age, pair it with newer pieces that make it pop such as the Belt of Braided Vessels from IL'goth in NY'aloha. The Shadow Dagger, a random world drop in The Burning Crusade, is a subtle but impactful addition to the set as well.
The helm completely encases the wearer's head and the shoulder curls up into giant, sharp blades. Strike at your enemies from the shadow (in style) by using one of these transmit sets for Rogues.
This Regalia is from An torus and like a lot of BFA gear it is a bit more toned down than other sets, making you look like a dashing pirate or corsair. This set used to strike fear in anyone of the other faction back in the days of Vanilla, and is sure to bring out some nostalgia from old players.
This Shadow lands set from Castle Natalia looks fantastic. All the colors are great, but only the Mythic version has a glow effect.
The set looks great on any class but fits well thematically on Worsen Rogues. The Alliance version is Dark wood Sentinel’s Guise which is not nearly as good but still looks good on Night Elves and can be combined with other pieces of gear to make some really cool Night Elf Rogue Tran smogs.
The metal textures on all versions of this set from Hellfire Citadel are fantastic. The green effects on the Mythic version looks great with a lot of different weapon options.
This set has some great pieces, especially the helmet, boots, gloves and the dark smoke coming from the shoulders. The set is pretty simple with alliance colors.
It looks decent on Humans but great on Night and Void Elves. Class Tier sets from World of Warcraft’s original content through The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Rich King, and Cataclysm are some of the best, most dynamic gear pieces on record, and the weapons and other armaments such as shields and off-hand items are often superb.
Certain expansion content is so trivial for a level 50 character to solo that there’s no real reason for me to go into detail on farming it. Anything up to Mists of Mandarin should be easily cleared by any character at level cap, and of course I do not know every possible item in the game that might be of interest to you.
Raids like the Trial of Valor have mechanics that can range from irritating to nearly impossible to solo if you don’t get lucky. Both Warlords of Drano and Legion have multiple difficulties with different looks available, making them much more expansive hunting grounds for transmit.
And with legendarily now transportable, even Gore howl loses out to the chance to get the Warplanes, or Thor’DAL for you Hunters. Wrath of the Rich King is another expansion with a lot of solid contenders, and there’s not a raid here I wouldn’t farm in if I didn’t have almost all of it already, but Ice crown Citadel ultimately wins for me.
While Ulnar has a lot of really nice tier sets and weapon drops (and some amazing shields) I think ICC is simply better, with more variety and a much more thematically appropriate feel to the gear. Plus, if you want gear that resembles the original Panoramas 40 looks, AXX 10 is the only place to even come close outside an occasional piece on the Black Market Auction House.
Both have great looks, but I prefer Fir elands’ thematic unity and focus on fire motifs over the tentacles and eyeballs of Dragon Soul. Some of these raids are still a little difficult to solo due to mechanics, such as the final fight in the BlackRock Foundry which can glitch out if you’re not careful.
Icy-Veins website is a great tool to get you started until you can decide on your individual play style. Once I leveled her up though, she became my new main and remained so until I unlocked Gulper.
I started as Sub many years ago and wish it was still as viable now as it was before because I still love the spec. Again there are some incredible Sin Rogues out there, but I’ve never really connected with the feel of it.
Combat (now Outlaw) spec I fell in love with in late Won. Plus, mixing a left-handed pistol shot to the face amidst fancy sword play seems to me like a perfectly in character thing to do.
So please, give a higher level Rogue a test drive. Share: Man I debated so long between rogue or whammy for this guy here.
I think the best smog for any Rogue, regardless of race, is a set you can get out of the BC dungeons. Here’s an idea for leather leveling transmit –wear the tabard and find subdued colors to match.
