As my personal main being a rogue I’ll start here. I’ve been very vocal about the Kindergarten seamstress work. If you zoom in there are leather creases which I’m cool with & leather is a hard one it seems to me for people to replicate the texture of leather. I like that it looks like leather, but I don’t like seeing the seams.
The lower one is what I’m calling the red version. It was what was previewed on the official Blizzard site. I dislike this one with a passion. The seams assault my eyes. It also seems too…. bright. We’re a stealth class. The poison green shoulders are… interesting. Are we going for Christmas colors here?
The middle one (aka the green version) is kinda grown on me. It’s a bit of a bright green. The main thing that I think of with rogues that are green are the poisons. The leather doesn’t look quite so much like real leather with the green set, but the grey stitching doesn’t assault my eyes quite so much. The gold glow of the shoulders seem to work with the green much better than the red version.
The blue version (the one on top) is the one I’m partial too. It still suffers from the horrible stitching. As with the green it’s a little bit of a bright color & the leather doesn’t look like real leather as much as the red version, but put all together it’s still my favorite. I almost expect blue shoulders to breath frost bolts out on occasion.
I’m a little disappointed there wasn’t a black version, but with what we’ve learned about the legendary daggers I think that might have been skirting DC comic’s intellectual property a little too much. I was thinking maybe a navy, but we didn’t really get any dark tones for rogues this tier.
