Sandi Toksvig’s twin brother –
A while back it was mentioned that there would be a legendary in patch 4.3. A lot of us have been kind of expecting an agility one-hander. Anything new on that front?
GS: Yes, you’re right! It is a pair of agility one-handers, and they are, in fact, daggers, and they are Rogue-only.
Rogue-only, interesting. So, a Legendary for just one class.
GS: Yeah. Yeah, we haven’t done anything like that before, but we thought it would be fun to try to tie the weapon’s proc and the quest line itself to rogue mechanics. Like, we know that the person on the quest will be able to stealth and pickpocket and they’ll have combo points, and they’ll be able to slowfall, and we thought it would be fun to really tailor things to the rogue specifically.
It always causes a ton of controversy when people are like “Oh, I was expecting… it’s time for the Feral legendary” or whatever. It’s a really hard thing to balance, and hopefully, eventually, we’ll get around to giving everyone a legendary, but we don’t want it to be too predictable, that takes some of the fun out of it. We try to keep players on their toes a little bit.
One more thing I should mention is that the mechanics are such that Combat rogues will be able to use the two daggers just as fine as well.
Okay, so regardless of spec, if you’re a Rogue you’re gonna want these things.
GS: Yeah, exactly.
Oh, and while I am on –
Any major class changes we should be expecting in 4.3?
GS: We are going to do a kind of a raid melee buff across the board.
