"Grip of Shadow "Whilst I know you were mostly just spitballing a name, and I know Rogues have some 'shadow' use I don't think a spell effect similar to Death Grip would be good. If they were to go with this I think it would be better to use a hook on a chain and then a yanking spell effect, similar to an abomination but a bit fancier.

I'd rather have a Scorpion style "Get over here!" Than a shadow grip style thingy.

Maybe 'Harpoon' or a Batman-esque grappling claw (would fit with the Deathwing tier gear too)? Shoot them through the leg and pull them out from underneath them, dragging them over to you where they arrive on their back leaving them momentarily without any defences?

You know, this is a fair comment. Rogues are tied into "the shadow" via a number of lore-like descriptions in their abilities. Harnessing it, moving through it, wrapping ourselves in it. They make it sound a lot like it's the same stuff shadow priests connect with. It would be interesting to work that in, where not only can we step through, but we can bring things with us or to us.OMG. Bring things with us... I just had an intense idea. Grab the tank, and BAMF him into the mobs. Holy crap that would be amazing! Or grab a mob and BAMF both of you to the tank...

You know, I thought "rogues really don't need Death Grip, it doesn't fit thematically" until you put the image of batman throwing the line and dragging someone back to him.Add in the poster above that'd like a heroic leap which I now see as a batline and it all fits.Guess it's not so much that something doesn't fit, as using the right way to describe it so you can see how it fits. :)
