The big news of this week was Gamescom and Patch 7.3: Shadows of Argus (it starts today!). The big news for rogues is…well nothing. No changes in Patch 7.3. It’s official, we are perfect.

Alex of FatbossTV sat down with World of Warcraft Game Director, Ion Hazzikostas, to talk about Patch 7.3 and more, and there was some discussion about the awesomeness of rogues. Check it out for an interesting insight into how Blizzard currently views rogues:

 

And Riff of Subtlety.Guide has been a busy rogue, bringing us not only his tips and tricks for Tomb of Sargeras, but also the second installment in his rogue interview series:

 

Speaking of tips and tricks, if you are still in Tomb of Sargeras, check out these compilations as well:

It’s been a super quiet week in the rogueverse. Just about the biggest thing of any note is that Riff is really working hard on his site, Subtlety.Guide, and it is looking great. This week he added interviews and his first victim subject was Paryah, one of the founders of Ravenholdt. Check it out:

 

Ravenholdt tshirts are still available for order from Teespring. This time around we added more colors as well as options for hoodies, tanks, and mugs, as well as a sticker. The logo has been updated from last time with new colors and lovely drippy poison. The quality on the shirts was fantastic last time; hopefully the new items will be just as good. Grab yours now! EU shirts will be next.

Ravenholdt Apparel and More

We have more Ravenholdt t-shirts! We also have hoodies, tanks, mugs, and a sticker. Our logo artist, Doug Shuler, redesigned the simple version of the logo and we have items in various colors including a yellow t-shirt (sadly yellow wasn’t an option for the other items).

Once again, we decided to go with a Teespring campaign to offer these due to the simplicity of the process relative to the items and styles that they offer. What this means is that if you want one you will need to order it by August 29th. Items should ship within two weeks after the campaign closes and you should receive them in plenty of time for BlizzCon.

Order yours now: https://teespring.com/2017-ravenholdt

We’ve had a few hotfixes/tuning changes this week. Check out our changelog for details:

 

Notter has been a busy rogue: not only does he have a set of Weak Auras for us…

…but he also teamed up with Tumna to write an advanced assassination guide. Note, this guide is not intended to replace Stjern’s guide, rather it is for assassination rogues who want to take their play to the next level.

 

A datamined tooltip for the Tier 21 Outlaw 4 set has caused some consternation. Blizzard Dev, Nimox, posted a correction and clarification:

Infexious discusses the clarification and its ramifications:

This week our exciting news is that we got a facelift and moved to a new platform. Finally. A few pages still need filling out but overall we are very happy with our new digs. Please check it out and let us know what you think. A few particular things to check out:

Fierydemise has retired. Rfeann has put together a lovely tribute:

Raiding in the Tomb of Sargeras is in full swing. Kistler is collecting Tips and Tricks. Check out his write up and comment if you have any to add:

Often these day when one asks for help with gear one gets the response, “Sim yourself.” Paryah explores what this means and how to do it:

Rfeann has updated our Rogue Changelog. Need to catch up on what’s new? Check it out:

 

And after all that, yes, there is other news as well. Wowhead has patch 7.3 tier set bonuses and armor sets. As always with datamined and PTR content, beware of spoilers:

 

Doubi Doubi posted a piece of rogue art created for a commission. Be sure to check out the time-lapse video; the details are amazing. We are very envious of the lucky recipient:

And artist Faebelina has been creating “what if” paintings of her character. This week she did rogue and it is lovely. Honestly Faeb, you should go rogue – rogue Faeb is best Faeb! (Ok, maybe we are a little biased).
