wow Moggable Legendary Weapons?

In Patch 7.2.5, Demon Hunters will be able to collect the appearances of Illidan's Warglaives of Azzinoth. Will we be able to mog Legendary weapons in the future?

Patch 7.2.5 added Black Temple as the first Timewalking raid, available during the Burning Crusade Timewalking. What's interesting is the addition of Arsenal: The Warglaives of AzzinothArsenal: The Warglaives of Azzinoth that seems to be dropping from Illidan. Demon Hunters will be able to collect the appearances of Warglaive of AzzinothWarglaive of Azzinoth & Warglaive of AzzinothWarglaive of Azzinoth. Many thoughts come to my mind, but please understand 7.2.5 is in early testing phase and many aspects do not represent the final product.

The first one being, why can only Demon Hunters acquire it, when Warglaives were available also to Death Knights, Monks, Rogues & Warriors? Have they been changed to Warglaives?

The second question is related to transmogrification and the fantasy behind Legendary items (mainly weapons). They were and still are hard (time-consuming) to obtain and represent dedication in an expansion. They either have extremely low drop chance or gating behind long series of quests. I don't see any reason why wouldn't they be moggable, because at the moment, we're able to mog Mists of Pandaria Legendary cloaks and Legion Legendaries.  If Blizzard's planning to add Arsenal: The Warglaives of AzzinothArsenal: The Warglaives of Azzinoth, maybe we'll see other Legendary item appearances drop in future Timewalking raids, like Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient KingsVal'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings from Timewalking Ulduar etc.

Moggable Legendary Weapons?

If Blizzard's planning to make Legendary Weapon appearances moggable via something as trivial as Timewalking, players that have been able to obtain them "the regular way" should definitely be entitled to mog them.

Do you think we'll be able to mog Legendary weapons in the future? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!

I hope so, my poor legendary bow is just sitting in my bank crying.

There are a few challenges here, such as Paladins not using a one-hander not being allowed to transmog into Val'anyr. For this to work, Blizzard would have to change some transmog rules to make these possible.

 

I still like the potential to be had here and I feel Blizzard could definitely step it up a bit. Even simply the legendaries during the Kael'thas encounter in Tempest Keep would be fun to have or use for some people.

 

But what about Epic items from the past that got their own spotlight? Model updates on Ashkandi, Zin'rokh and Armageddon for example could definitely turn out to be fine "legendary-level" transmogs for classes like Arms Warriors and Unholy Deathknights.

 

What about an updated model for Gurubashi Dwarf Destroyer or even the zul'gurub mount as your hunter pet? Things like these might actually be really fun to have as a "legendary" transmog. So many choices and so many tastes.

In my humble opinion Blizzard should expand the transmit system and let us go bananas with:

- Allow players to collect and transmog appearances of any armor class with any class. That means we can transmog plate into cloth, etc.

- Allow gray/common items to be transmoggable because why the fuck not. If I want to go to a dungeon while looking like a hobbo, I should because reasons. 

- Allow players to hide ANY item slot. If I want to run a raid naked, let me do so.

- Allow Hunters/Warlock/Mages/Death Knights to "transmog" pets/minions into mobs of the respective type, once they're defeated (which includes bosses). Imagine how awesome it would be to run around as Mage with a Water Elemental that looks like Ragnaros. I doesn't have to make sense.

Hell yeah to moggable pets! Looking forward to a LK, or KT or sindragosa (minus the voice) pet for my DK :) Same thinking with WLs and Legion (the faction kill the whole universe thingies, not the expansion) mobs. I see this maybe sounds a bit too enthusiastic but i really think that'd be awesome. I mean yeah we have the glyphs and all... but i've kinda seen my Ghoul/Skeleton/Geist/Abo... It'd be cool as a DK/Lock/Mage to at least be able to permanently "tame" undead/Demon/Elemental creatures respectively, similar to how hunters tame those beasts. But i think Blizzard and class fantasy wouldn't allow that ;)

 

I do agree though, the choices and possibilities are limitless and everyone has different preferences. I mean if you don't play pet classes i think one couldn't care less about moggable pets...

      A first look at upcoming Antoran mounts from the new raid.
      Two new Antoran hounds were added in Patch 7.3 and they're sharing models with the Hounds of Sargeras boss encounter in Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Description
      Sargeras' own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow and flame.
      Antoran Charhound looks like Shatug and Antoran Gloomhound looks like Fharg.

      Images taken from our 7.3 boss models thread
      The mounts (or at least one of them) might have a low drop chance from Sargeras's dogs encounter in Antorus, just like Abyss Worm from Mistress Sass'zine.

      The latest Patch 7.3 build added voice overs for the most important Argus characters as well as sounds for Antorus, the Burning Throne raid bosses. They're a great complement to the leaked Legion ending and our theory of Pantheon involvement in Antorus.
      Please note that this article contains major spoilers revolving around the Argus story line and Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Argus the Unmaker (Argus World Soul)
      Final boss of Antorus the Burning Throne.
      Aggramar
      Penultimate boss in Antorus.
      Aman'thul
      It seems he appears when Argus is defeated.
      Eonar
      A Valithria-style boss in Antorus.
      Sargeras
      Currently, he doesn't have a model, there's just a "Voice of Sargeras" NPC in the game files having the skin of an Infernal.

In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members.

      We raid twice a week, a total of 6 hours; attendance of 90% is mandatory. We require you to function at 100% from the second the raid starts all the way to its end; if you cannot commit to a raiding schedule and be online on time this is not a guild for you.
      Currently we are trying to build up our roster to start Mythics.
