As I already have said... trying to boost rogue numbers by giving them a legendary weapon is like offering two bags of free peanuts in the business class instead of one to attract more customers. This is still a Legendary item, I'd be surprised if even 1% of the rogues ever get to hold these. In short, I do not think this was done to get more players to play rogue. They'd need to do something else... like making rogues fun to play for more people. And just because YOU think it's fun, a lot of people do not. Rogue is the least played class in the game, apart from shamans and warlocks, according to the World of Warcraft census site. I do not know how accurate that census is, so I may be wrong.

Its not about *getting it* its about more rogues *wanting* it. Theres big difference. Of course "every" rogue in existence will want the legendary and they keep playing and raiding for loong time if they really want it, which most will. If anything this will bring those sat rogues or pvp rogues more interested in raiding now if not for "being long time member reward" then for "pvp daggers". Lets face it, theres not many rogues in raids (10mans 0-1 and 25mans maybe 2-3 max) so theres not even drama where the legeendary would go. Theres only one guy who gets it.Its def to boost rogue numbers. I mean come on, if they made this to class who doesnt have legendary then they would've given wider classes them. Like feral druids and hunters polearm/staff. Rogues *can* already possibly get 7 legendaries with these daggers its not like they are missing legendaries or dps numbers. They are missing rogues.

Eh, thats because we require a hell of a lot more number crunching and meta math to be effective than most classes. Thats more effort than most people want to put into it.

"We require a hell of a lot more number crunching and meta math to be effective than most classes."No class in wow is unique special snowflake on this part. Sorry.
