"When I say it doesnt fit the lore is that the lore really doesnt talk about any well known rogue in the expansion."So? Why does that matter?Sulfuras and Thunderfury had nothing to do with warriors, paladins, rogues or shaman. Atiesh did relate well to mages...but not druids or priests. Medivh also had zero part in Vanilla WoW. Karazhan wasn't added to the game until BC! The Warglaives came from the main character in BC, Illidan. Yet he wasn't a warrior or rogue. In lore he was more of a mage! Thori'dal has...no story whatsoever. I hate that thing more and more each expansion.Wrath of the Lich King wasn't about Titans or maces or healers, yet that's what Val'anyr involved. Shadowmourne is the only legendary weapon that references a well-known class that was also an important figure in the expansion...yet that weapon was not just for DKs, but warriors and paladins too. Dragonwrath has zip to do with the Cataclysm and Deathwing has no relationship to any sort of caster eithier.Where did this idea come from that a legendary has to relate to the "primary lore class" of the expansion? Just from Shadowmourne? You are using a single legendary as the basis for your entire argument? That's pretty shaky ground. You're right, the "Fangs of the Father" could have been swords or axes too, but Blizzard decided to make them daggers. The lore is that a black dragon reaches out to rogues to help him achieve his goals. He asks for help from rogues because he knows they just don't care. They are assassins and don't hesitate to do shady stuff if it profits them. That makes a great deal more lore sense than shaman doing the same thing. The lore around the daggers is fine.
