Brack states that they haven't settled on a name, lore, or any such thing for the weapon, so who knows what its quest chain may bring. That is actually a very interesting detail in itself: If Brack is being truthful and Blizzard doesn't know anything about the dagger's design yet, are we as close to seeing patch 4.3 on the PTR as the armor previews suggest? Or will Blizzard need to cobble it together in a hurry late in the patch's development cycle?
Patch 4.3 will also introduce the Raid Finder. Two weeks ago, community manager Zarhym cryptically suggested that patch 4.3's Raid Finder will serve as an introduction-to-raiding tool without offering any details, leaving attentive players bewildered. Brack explains: The Raid Finder, which is limited to 25-man raids, will actually be one step lower in difficulty than normal mode raids. These raids will drop less loot, will not grant achievements, mounts, titles, or other associated vanity rewards and are meant to serve as raiding training wheels.
So how about it, rogues? How does it feel to get another legendary?
Update: It appears The Escapist has taken the article offline.
Brace yourselves for what could be some of most exciting updates to the game recently with patch 4.3. Look at what's ahead: new item storage options, cross-realm raiding, cosmetic armor skinning and your chance to battle the mighty Deathwing -- from astride his back!
