Blackened Defias set removed

18 Gnome Warlock
On what planet was it ever a good idea to remove the Blackened Defias leather set in the same patch that brought us Transmorg ?

Do (rogue) players not deserve a plain black leather set or must we "assasins of the night" be forced into the shadows in gaudy yellow and orange armour ?

Please be sensible and give the rogue players what they want and return their only fully plain black leather set at your earliest convenience.

Yours truely
Annoyed rogue.

P.S - While you are at it, all classes deserve to have a choice of a plain black set in their armour class.....grrr.

I didn't even realise is was gone. I loved this on my Hunter while leveling.

They should also be bringing in transmogs for lower armour ie plate should be able to xmog mail, leather > cloth, mail > leather. It's rather disappointing when you had a set that was enjoyable thru the leveling experience, only to not be able to xmog to it at 85 (Defias is a great example, along with the Scarlet Crusade mail set).

I never really had a problem with bank storage, so I kept my Blackened Defias gear long after I'd outleveled it.

Very glad I did, it's an awesome set.

It would be good if there was some sort of similar alternative for those who made characters after the cataclysm.

Well there sort of is, you just have to mix and match. The Scouting set has some good items.

For my set the Bandit boots and gloves aren't perfect, there's some in Kara that are a better match, but they haven't dropped yet.

And The Lobotomizer has a black pulsing glow that hides Landslide, yay! The old pvp weapons bought with honor are excellent for transmog with some neat models.

I am highly disappointed in Blizz for removing this set. What is the point?? I would have instantly transmorg'd my top set into looking Defias... My assumption is it has to do with the storyline and Edwin Van Cleef being dead or something.... LAME

Yeah Bliz, you need to bring it back and make it to were we can sell it. I would love to have it again. Also I had the complete Scarlet set for my warrior. I hope you guys didn't remove that too. I would love to have my rogue transed into it with a cool hood. I hope you guys put it back!!!
