Unfortunately I don't think a death grip for rogues would work. It is an interesting idea, but it's such a signature death knight move that it'd have to be radically different for death knights not to lose any flavour in their own.The other problem with death grip is that it doesn't thematically fit in with rogues. Even ignoring the fact there'd have to be some way to bring the target over to you (and further ignoring the 'rogues use a hint of magic) the problem is that, like us warriors (yeah, I play a warrior an ny rogue is an alt withering away in his 30s) rogues are about goin out and doing the dirty work themselves. You poison your weapons, sneak around the front line, select your victim and swiftly send them to their maker. It's all about getting up close and personal before letting it all pay off and simply watching your target fall to their knees. In this shadow step works well, because it essentially cuts out the middle man of you having to sneak around the front line. My warrior is similar to this, except warriors lack the subtlety of a rogue, preferring brute strength.Death Knights on the other hand are much more in-your-face, I'm-the-one-that's-killing-you, you-will-die. That fits perfectly with Death Grip and their mindset of being as utterly offensive and as downright painful as possible. They will let you run and think you've gotten away only to bring you back to square one. They will send you through your own personal hell, and what better way to do that than bringing you to exactly where they want you to be.Although the idea for a taunt is interesting, and does fit both in both thematically and as a useful utility. The only problem is you wouldn't exactly want taunt as an 85-90 ability, as you really want to get something special and new.Thank you for the good read!

Some kind of Grip actually would be a perfect fit for Rogues. Some kind of Kusari-Gama is probably a better way to make the visual of it. Here's a picture of it: http://www.monstercommute.com/wp-content/uploads/kusarigama.jpgYour target is trying to run away. You throw your kusari-gama and pull them back, then make the kill, or you pick up your target from a pack of mobs walking past you without the others even noticing it, kinda like how Batman often does it.Still think it doesn't fit the theme?
