@ Chase,You wrote;I'm not sure what bats have to do with Deathwing or the Dragon Soul. I'm actually not really sure what bats have to do with WoW in general. I've only ever seen bats in low-level dungeons like Razorfen Kraul.While what you wrote is quite true, could Blizzard have been thinking that Rogues are creatures of the night and based the gear off that?

I think chase was trying to somehow provide an alternative to the obvious, which is that the rogue tier is completely inspired by batman.I think he was trying to defend blizzard's statement "were careful to skirt the more obvious inspirations." Really, he should just completely give in, rogues in t13 are batman, just own it, and let blizzard's lawyers defend blizz if it comes to that. It's better than looking like your head is coming out of a chicken mouth.

I think he's also trying to avoid the obvious conclusion of this having happened:Ghostcrawler: Guys, I want you to design Rogue Tier 13 to entice people back to their Rogues. There aren't enough folks playing their Rogues right now. We're going to have the devs put in some legendary daggers for them, too, to make sure they come back.Design Team: How about we make their T13 look just enough like Batman to not get sued and have the legendary daggers give them wings?

Nitpicking Chase, but if those were the only bats you could think of you didn't think very hard. Just sayin.

Your explanation definitely makes sense. I just see the other tier sets reflecting the Dragon Soul, like hunters wearing dragons and such. I do think that the bat is a fitting symbol, and I don't mind being a superhero one bit.
