I on the other hand, as someone who played a DW DPS, wholly approve of allowing a Frost DK to wield 2 awesomely identicaly weapons. I would have been able to pair down all of my Weapons I had saved, down to just my favorite models.

2h'd
1h'd

Obviously I'd keep more than that, but those are the two models that I would use for my DK more often than anything else. Trolls, Death Knights, and Axes. Just something awesome about that.

I would have always loved to have picked up This because I thought it felt "trolly" but never could get a group to go back after it when mogging went in.

completely agree. why even have different types of weapons now? just give everyone a piece of foam and go at it.

honestly...if they are doing this...why don't they just bring back all the old blacksmithing plans...i want LOLherald and bloodmoon...and let people be able to use the grand marshal's gear. who gives a flying crap anymore?

i'm sort of not digging the homogenization of everything. if i have an axe...i have an axe. if i have a sword...i have a sword.

i do like the one hand/main hand thing. i was going to say i was looking forward to a tanking mace so i can now use the merciless gladiator's gavel for tanking...but now i just need a feather or whatever and i can transmog it.

wtf?



I disagree, mainly because there are so many cool older models that can't be used now due to the MH/OH issue. Especially since most of the daggers look like swords now anyway. There are some issues with animations now, but really, the combat animations mostly suck, and who really pays attention to that anyway? If the weapons work with the combat poses, they should be allowed.

If they really don't want it, then they need to get off their lazy butts and add more weapon models and options to current tiers.

To be honest, I never much saw the reason for the weapon type limit. Apparently the outcry by the hunter community (or a dev who favored the idea enough) was sufficient to not have to deal with whatever weapon type the current tier drops when you don't actually like the sound or look.

Personally, I hope they drop the MH/OH at least so I can wield the awesome Northshire Battlemace.

Then don't xmog it? Seriously this is one of the most petty things to complain about. Trying to make some slippery slope argument about changing the look of a weapon is ridiculous.

but that's my point then...what's the point of having any sort of weapon? or racial for that matter for expertise or anything?

you have an axe...you get an axe.

plus, if they are going this way...don't half ass it...make everything available.

EDIT: actually terranoid...you make a good point. didn't really think about it that way.

still, if they are talking about accessability all the time...then i would prefer all things to be accessible. like, the old bs plans for the weapons and the grand marshal gear.

the argument about racials is a pretty poor strawman: you don't get a different weapon bonus through transmog. I feel like the weapon-specific bonuses are largely irrelevant flavor (though also basically a way of making it have some limits), especially now that daggers look like big swords (some are bigger than some sword models), swords like a bugs leg, axes like a razor blade on a stick, and maces can look like beer mugs.

unless they let me get a better bonus for using something I think is hideously ugly and doesn't match my shoes... then I'll be all for it. :P

But I'm all for accessible patterns for old gear (even if they were cosmetic only). I don't mind so much the limited access to some specific gear sets (though I think maybe a recolor should be available), especially if they had an achievement or some such thing to go with it.

On other hand, the entire point of transmogrification is "making things look like different things".

but it's still a sword to sword...axe to axe...mace to mace.

but honestly, after reading the rationale...it made much more sense than my rambling so i'm on board with it.

i mean, i've been wanting to have the merciless gladiator gavel as my tanking weapon since forever. was my first epic tanking weapon so i guess it actually let's me have what i want.

my argument was actually pretty stupid after thinking about it. i was thinking, "well, what's the point of calling it an axe if it can be "changed" into a sword"...but then after everyone pointed out it out...yeah, it's kind of dumb.

With it giving Main Hand Weapons the ability to be mogged, here si a short list of MH Weapons that I always loved.

Zulian Scepter of Rites I would have totally DW'd them on my DK.
BUBBLES!!!!!!!!!!! Yes. I forsee people DW'ing these.
Also known as the Cudgel Good Weapon model.
Shockwave Truncheon Maybe I'm alone. I love the animation on this model.
Greatsword of Horrid Dreams I tanked with this. I thought it was AWESOME.
Fang of the Leviathan Frekkin' awesome model.
Lollipop Will definitely get used by paladins, and I'm sure some other classes.
Tempest of Chaos Definitely going to see use again.
Infection Repulser Good and bulky
Life and Death Man.. that thing is SEXY
Bone Golem Scapula A Million Death KNights cried out as they realized they could DW this now.
DK's Sword fun
The Many Spellswords of Wotlk I bet you see this one too.
Arthas Mace I bet you see this one too.

I can account for at least one tank who'll wield a Northshire Battlemace. That thing is dead sexy on the purple judgement recolor transmog set I've got set up... which I have to remember to actually mog back into :P

i did hyjal again last night trying to get cataclysm's edge. that sword did not drop...but got the rotating pink disaster from trash again.

Vendored it for about the 3rd time.

i really didn't use that many weapons for tanking as prot...i think all told it was three of them. that crystal sword thing, the merciless glad gavel and then the pink rotating mace.

then i went ret and now i tank heroics to get into a que faster. don't even tank lfr anymore.

i've never seen tempest of chaos or cataclysm's edge...when i did it in bc or when i run it now for transmog purposes.

and that's not just on my paladin either...going there on my warrior too...and yet to see it on that toon either.

that being said...love pissing off the two druids i know that have been trying to get that thing since bc. i've had to vendor it around 5 or 6 times.

we all make it a point to tell each other when we vendor things.

Anyone build a nice set around the Pandaren hat? So far I've got this:

I may have to give up Awesome Tabard :(

I'm hoping we get something nice in T16 (assuming it's final tier) for the traditional figureprint.

I recently discovered Mogit, so I had to mess with it! I'd always thought the Klaxxi tabard had really nice colors, so I thought I'd make something of it. Sadly I don't own any of the pieces used, but they're attainable and would be a nice change of color from the Sunwell White Knight look.

Now if only I could persuade all the warriors/DKs to let me have a Scimitar for "research purposes"...

I'd love to but haha, man what a raid shopping list...

shoulder-LFR Ambershaper
glove-LFR Tsulong
cloak-25 Freya
shield-H25 ToTC Beasts (I never got that shield when it was current, either)
boots-H25 Zon'ozz

blarg! there's not really any substitutes that look "right" either. I was really going for the gradient darkening aesthetic from head to toe on the armor pieces too. The way that the pants transform the tabard into an overshirt is just badass though.
