Know Your Rogue Lore: Yili

With Patch 3.3 hitting I couldn't pass up the chance to look at one of our NEWEST rogue lore introductions. Yili is going to be VERY important to all of the Alliance raiders as she serves the important function of being our gear vendor. But who is she and what do we know about her?

A gnome rogue she proved herself in the Argent Crusade Tournament to become part of the elite strike team going into Ice Crown Citadel called The Ashen Verdict. Lead by none other than such greats as Tirion Fordring and Darion Mograine the group is also joined by Muradin Bronzebeard.

Due to her diminutive size it is easy to miss Yili when you enter the Light's Hammer section of Ice Crown Citadel. She is located at the VERY end of a line of vendors on the right hand side platform as you enter the instance. She is dressed in the Tier 10 armor with Steel Bladebreaker in her left hand but her MAIN hand weapon is a CASTER dagger of all things the Blade of Tarasque (thank you Kryssa for identifying that for me!) Why? No clue.

Just as with previous patches gear can be purchased with emblems, the price is Emblems of Frost. However there is a difference this time around. To upgrade your piece you need to have cleared the IC on Normal FIRST before you gain access to the Heroic instance encounters. Then the final boss of each wing drops a token which can be used to get the upgraded gear. So while the pieces might cost you a bit you should get to use it for a while before you are trading it out.
