Moggable Legendary Weapons?

Recommended Posts

AuYm88R.jpg

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!

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...

      Rextroy is back with a new video, where he one-shots 20 players with a single Chaos Bolt thanks to the Void Ritual Corruption Effect. 
      It took Rextroy a while to come up with a new video because he had to gear up his Warlock from scratch and farm Echoes of Ny'alotha to make this work since Blizzard recently implemented Inescapable Consequences that kills you when you have more than 200 Corruption equipped at once.
      Void Ritual is the perfect Corruption Effect that increases the damage of Chaos Bolt since the damage scales with Critical Strike, Mastery, and Versatility.
      The Bane of Havoc PvP Talent allows you to hit as many people with Chaos Bolt as you need.
      Rextroy also had to gather Azerite pieces with Crashing Chaos and Chaotic Inferno to make this work. The Essences used for this combo are Worldvein Resonance and Replica of Knowledge (The Formless Void). Important are also Gladiator's Badge and the Fireblood racial. You get an additional 12% damage increase from Grimoire of Supremacy, so all these effect combined will substantially increase the damage of Chaos Bolt.
      There's also a workaround for Inescapable Consequences. Simply, removing your Void Ritual gear after you get the proc makes it keep stacking up the secondary stats at full power, allowing you to enter combat with your normal gear together with an instane stat boost.
      Check out the video below for more information!

      As the end of expansion lull is upon us, we should always remember there are many, MANY things to do in WoW that aren't just current content, and we have a really cool challenge/concept by Deededee everyone should take a look at! He's taken playing old raids to a whole new and fun level. The idea is quite simple and very roguelike: you start out naked in Molten Core and just gear up along the way. The catch is you stop if you die (although that part can be skipped if you're not a hardcore type of person) and tally all the drops you got, trying to get further and get some better stuff along the way.

      This will certainly make transmog runs more fun, if you can stomach doing a few raids you don't need stuff from, but it really seems worth it.
      Another fun aspect of this is sharing the results with friends on twitter or elsewhere (or just keep the screenshots for yourself and see if you can beat your previous upgrade tally), and then commiserate how unlucky you got with drops (which, let's face it, is the primary mode of communication in WoW ? ).
      I'll definitely be doing a few runs, if nothing else to see how many times the left binding can drop off Garr on characters that aren't my warrior, so I can complain about that a bit more (because 15 years just isn't enough)!
