Rogue Challenge Mode Gear

I really like what Blizzard is doing with Challenge Modes.

Any time they implement a new feature, they have to find a suitable reward to make people want to play with that feature.  The Challenge Mode rewards are very creative.  Finishing with a Bronze gets you a title.  Finishing with Silver gets you a mount, and finishing with Gold gets gear.

The gear that you get has no stats, so you don’t use them as part of the gearing-up process.  They are strictly cosmetic and used to transmog your existing gear.  The pieces have interesting visual procs that go off during combat.  This makes them very desirable because they are attention-grabbing, but they do not disrupt game balance.

Here is a video.  You’ll see two procs – one from the dragon shoulders, and a smoke effect during combat.

Very cool!  Blizzard thinks that gold will be hard to get, so if you manage to obtain that gear you will really stand out from the crowd.

    The smoke effect there, imagine how good that’ll be with the Glyph of Decoy and Smoke Bomb. All 3 are things that visually obscure things and can confuse people every now and then. It won’t cause balance problems, but it will be interesting to see how some people can use those little things for their benefit.

    Since the gear has no stats, it’s clearly designed with transmog in mind. So, do the visual procs work even though you haven’t actually equipped the items, but only transmogged them on? If so, then this could mean we’re one step closer in getting to use on-use effects from various transmoggable items as well.

        No benefit in using Smoke Bomb? Clearly you missed the whole Cataclysm expansion if you don’t know just how big a game changer SB was for competitive PvP.

        I don’t mind someone trying to troll me, as I’ve been surfing the web for years on end. Anonymity + Public Forum = People turning into morons.
        However, I’m offended by the way you mishandle the English language. Might wanna go back to school and l2write and l2grammar.

        I’m embarrassed that guys like that even read the blog. I would think that my use of proper grammar and spelling would scare them away.
