Those RPG players who align with the dark and stealthy archetype need proper armor to match, and World of Warcraft rogues are no exception. Over the years, the development team released some incredible sets for the class with some of the most iconic dating all the way back to the beginning.

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.

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.

Since moving to San Francisco I've gone completely ITB (all my hardware is back home). Although I'm liking the convenience of being ITB I'm starting to miss that vintage analog monosynth sound. I've had my eye on a micromole, but I've recently come across a Moog rogue for $650.

I know this question is a little open and generic, really I just want to hear from rogue owners what your thoughts are on this synth. I spent two days tracking one a few weeks ago, and it BLEW ME AWAY.

My summary of the synths:Micromole: Precise filter, which is cleaner than the Rogue. OTOH, has audio FM of the filter, which makes it capable of very nasty sounds.

Radiohead used a Rogue, FWIW, as have lots of indie type bands over the last few decades. I sold mine, but mainly to prove that I could let it go and not get too attached to it (true story).

Yeah, the sliders in particular make it feel like a total POS, no doubt! For what it's worth, my Taurus II is the only vintage analog I've kept around, which is basically a Rogue rack.

Granted I mostly have it for the novelty of the foot pedals, but it really is a nice sounding synth, limited but occasionally less is more. I wouldn't at all call it quirky. It doesn't get much simpler and straight-forward. As for unique, well. It is almost uniquely simple, and it is a discrete analog synth so if you're into that then sure it's worth more than buying a comparably priced and more capable synth like an Evolved.

I actually had this and ended up changing all the sliders and switches for technology transplant ones, so it's great now. I also got their new slider caps as the old ones color had faded and some were a bit cracked (still completely useable though).

Dave Smith Instruments Evolved / Moho Keys / Tetra Waldorf Blood Novation Ultranova (doubles as PC Audio I/O) ...and LOTS more stuff more interesting and with more modern connectivity to your ITB setup than a Moog Rogue.

It is 16 part multitimbral, so you can write whole songs on it with your DAY or iPad as a sequencer. All the pertinent trim pots are on the rear and the tuning procedure is fairly easy and the document to do this easily found (more easily than the user manual).

All the pertinent trim pots are on the rear and the tuning procedure is fairly easy and the document to do this easily found (more easily than the user manual). Then you have the gooey sticky foam everywhere that needs to be cleaned up, and the flimsy construction quality.

I had to replace lots of drifted parts in my supposedly perfect Rogue just to make it function properly and tune after following the tuning procedure. I think I would pay $300 max, and I would choose to expand my modular with that $300 instead. It is only really valuable if you feel you must be seen on stage with an “old Moog” so more of a fashion accessory in my experience.

If you played keys in a rock band and wanted a simple retro keyboard, that's the Rogue. I've owned a Rogue and Multimode, which is a Micromole with an extra oscillator strapped on to it.

My summary of the synths:Micromole: Precise filter, which is cleaner than the Rogue. OTOH, has audio FM of the filter, which makes it capable of very nasty sounds.

Radiohead used a Rogue, FWIW, as have lots of indie type bands over the last few decades. No triangle waveform, shared octave switch for VCO, single AD EG with shared D/R and full or zero sustain. But it has one redeeming feature: contoured sync, which routes filter EG to hard sync'd VCO pitch.

It's in decent shape but could use a bit of a facelift and that is a Philip Reese Little MTV that the previous owner Velcro'd to the back. I suppose it is something of a precursor to the Slim Patty and having foot pedals is a nice plus that gives it added value.

Still, if ever I decide to finally part with it, I know that it won't be missed, but it does sound good and there is a filter input. I prefer the MG-1 ... and the micromole is easily my favorite Moog. Micromoog is especially good at nice pretty leads with a bit of edge. .

I have had 2 Blends, one Micro, one Novation Nova II-X, an SCI Prophet600, Kong R3, Waldorf 4Pole, EMU Max I with SSM Filters, Overhaul Matrix 1000, Mason AF-9 analog filter pedal, Plug Ins like Eventide, Sounds, Pro5... I currently have a Waldorf Q, an Overhaul SEM Pro, a MoogerFooger Low Pass Filter... My conclusion when it comes to comparing a quality vintage synth built with discreet circuitry etc VS a digital VA synth is very simple: When I run a voice of an VA like the Q through the Footer with its cut-off open (specially over driving it just a bit), they really come to life.

No need for actually filtering them to improve the sound, just using the MF as a preamp gives it a noticeable touch of “analog enrichment” otherwise really hard to obtain. If I run my electric guitars through the Footer this way, they also come out sounding richer, the discreet low pass filter has a gain structure that acts within the filter, not just PRE or post filter like 95% of digital synths emulate, and that shows.Furthermore, if I run the Overhaul oscillators through the Moog or the Overhaul filter, what I got is pure bliss.

I find true VCO and discreet filtering yield sounds rich and warm enough to justify certain prices. You can search for them in a Blood, Novation VA... etc but if you are obsessive like me, you'll always be half-satisfied.

Only yourself can judge things like plasticity, personal budget, etc. I don't get is people paying outrageous prices for TB 303s and the like... Well I do in a way, I mean everyone is free to spend money the way they want.
