Upon updating today, I couldn't help but notice that the Vengeful Gladiator's Felweave Cowl that I use for transmogrification had suddently become red. Asked other guildies to check that for me, and the result was the same... it was red, like the Malefic set, and not blue like the Vengeful set.
Also worth mentioning, it is the only piece that was changed - the rest of the sets look the same. So I wondered, "What the heck did these guys touch, to break this item!". I wanted to see if it was only the helm, or if the wings were changed as well... but they didn't come out. For a moment, I thought that they had even removed the wing effect!
And then I jumped. Much to my surprise, the wings suddenly popped... then dissapeared. Tried jumping again, and there were the wings again! So... yes, apparently they thought it'd be "fun" if the Wings deployed when you jumped, as if one were Count Dracula. An arguable idea at best... but worse still, the effect isn't quite convincing, as wings just appear and disappear, instead of the usual "fading" effect when coming out and back in.
Madness, I tell you!
I am assuming this is a bug because if it isn't this change is ridiculus.
Edit: This from the General Forum:

That's because the T6 boots/belt/wrists are considered Sunwell content, and therefore fit the Sunwell sets (same happens with other classes, not just locks). The matching belt for T6 is Anetheron's Noose from Hyjal.
Edit: Didnt check date! Dont reply to this thread ppl, bring it here: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/3313032335 Its just as old but has been kept active.
I imagine Blizzard will get around to fixing it sooner or later. You could probably flag it up by posting in the bugs forum.
