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...

      Squirky is a new capturable Murloc pet that can be found on the Seabreak Isle (Azsuna). In this mini-guide we're looking at how to capture him.
      There are murlocs and crabs that hit hard and it's easy to aggro groups of mobs. Make sure to approach Squirky on your flying mount and click him as soon as you land so you begin the battle before entering combat. The pet cannot be caged.
      Abilities
      Squirky has the following abilities
      Level 1 - Punch Level 2 - Clobber Level 4 - For Adventure! Level 10 - Fish Slap Level 15 - Stampede Level 20 - Bubble Pet Model

      Location coords Seabreak Isle - Azsuna (20,21)

      Tomb of Sargeras is coming within a month (hopefully) and we got the official preview with developer insights and some background lore for the raid and each individual boss. Mythic testing is on the way this weekend so the tentative mid-June release date might actually be possible, although near the end of the month seems more likely. In any case, enjoy the pretty detailed preview:
      Blizzard (source)
      Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, the combined forces of the Class Orders have fought their way through the Broken Shore to reach the Tomb of Sargeras. With weapons of great power and the Pillars of Creation at hand, the defenders of Azeroth must face these last foes before the portal is sealed, cutting off the Burning Legion’s access to Azeroth.
      Minimum Level: 110
      Location: The Broken Shore
      Bosses: 9
      Difficulty: Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, Mythic
      Aegwynn used this sacred temple of Elune to lock away the defeated Sargeras’ avatar. She hoped it would remain dormant, buried deep within the earth, but the lure of power has continued to draw foul entities to this site. When Gul’dan reentered the tomb, he tore down Aegwynn’s wards and opened a doorway for the Legion to invade. Now the fel army tears at the vault, hoping to reclaim their master’s power.
      Encounters and Bosses
      You can learn a bit about each of the bosses below. Make sure you check out the in-game Adventure Guide (Shift-J) for a full list of tips for Healers, Damage Dealers, and Tanks. 
      Goroth
      As punishment for past failures Goroth’s flesh is marred with searing wounds. With every movement this behemoth makes, his flesh crackles and hisses with unending torment, a scourge he is happy to inflict upon those who oppose him.
      Demonic Inquisition
      Anticipating the arrival of mortal forces invading the Tomb of Sargeras, Kil’jaeden has called on his best captors, Atrigan and Belac, to lock down the interlopers and prevent them from using the Pillars to advance deeper into the dungeon.
      Harjatan
      Harjatan was trained from birth to demolish his enemies. Through a conquest of savage brutality, he gathered throngs of cave dwelling murlocs who see him as a god. Now, the naga brute merely has to bark a command and hordes of devout followers set themselves to task.
      Mistress Sassz’ine
      Mistress Sassz’ine has spent a lifetime binding the denizens of the ocean to her dark will. With this power, she summons nightmares from the briny depths to wash away any who dare challenge her.
      Sisters of the Moon
      The Sisters of the Moon served as wardens for the temple long before the avatar of Sargeras was buried beneath it. Even in death, the sisters maintained their vigil, but over the millennia something twisted their ability to distinguish friend from foe. Their madness slowly consumed them, and now any who enter their sacred chambers are put to death.
      The Desolate Host
      Once, this was a sacred burial site for the night elves, until the Legion corrupted these grounds with the Engine of Souls. This foul machine draws upon the energy of the dead, twisting them into abominations.These tormented spirits have become monstrosities, looking to feed on any who descend into the tomb’s depths.
      Maiden of Vigilance
      Charged by Aegwynn to defend the Tomb of Sargeras, the Maiden of Vigilance has stood watch for hundreds of years. Yet, the guardian did not foresee what effect the avatar’s seeping fel energy would have on this titan construct. Slowly warped by this maleficence, the maiden now seeks to destroy any in her path.
      Fallen Avatar
      When Aegwynn defeated the Avatar of Sargeras, she was unable to destroy his avatar. In an effort to seal it away, the armor was entombed beneath the Temple of Elune, where it remained dormant for hundreds of years. Now, with the Legion tearing down the tomb’s barriers, Kil’jaeden is in a position to reanimate the armor and unleash its power on Azeroth.
      Kil’jaeden
      Since striking the bargain that chased the Draenei into the stars, Kil’jaeden believed the Legion could not be stopped—yet, none of his deceptions have prevented you from reaching this critical moment. Infuriated that Sargeras’ promise of victory has never come to pass, the demon lord prepares to face you himself, for a final battle that will shape Azeroth’s destiny forever.
      We’ll see you in the tomb!
