As a fury warrior, I can't help but wonder my wonderer off about our Artifact would be. The only thing that pops to mind is Gorehowl and Lord knows how much I'd want it :D. The lore behind it could be that after we help Grommash save Draenor, he offers us his weapon as a token of apology that he wanted to commit genocide against the space goats. Being the greedy barbarians we are, we take it and feed it the blood of our enemies. Pliz Blizz ^_^
why why why are you doing this blizzard! giving ppl ashbringer like cookies what is going on here? these artifact thing look good right now isnt it ppl wait until you enter a bg full of paladins with ashbringer or mages with felo melorn and nothing else. See how rare/powerful/strong/cool your artifact weapon will be.
And here I am still waiting for the rogue weapons... :'(
As an Arms Warrior (main) I'm struggling to see what 'iconic' Warrior Weapon would fit the Artifact thinking.I also get that Lore will decide this, but to transmog away from what will be the Artifact model (for any Class/specc. combo) will tend to detract from the symbolism that the Artifact Weapon holds.Example - we know Retri-dins will be getting Ashbringer; suppose you play a Maraad-themed Draenei & transmog Ashbringer to a Hammer of the Naaru style model - how will any of the later Ashbringer cosmetic variations be validated...?
I got a bad feelin'... I really want to keep dual-wielding One-Handed Weapons as a Brewmaster Monk, so that I can Transmog them to Tankard(s) O' Terror. If the Brewmaster Artifact is yet another Two-Handed Staff, then that means I'd be forced to use that staff, wouldn't I...
Ok.... So new weapons... :)Class specific..:(Customizable... :)Yet a few questions: some weapons being EPIC and long time " Most Wanted" in game, now coming back are they still offering the same visual and sound effects as their former ones ( the initial forms ) ?Like for example the Ashbringer: https://youtu.be/eqmucurnDO0 ? Hope Blizz keeps the effects either Visual or even Audio... :)
Really dumb idea all-around. What's the point of owning a 'special' weapon if everyone else worth their salt of your class has it, too?I really don't like the idea of six hundred 'the' Ashbringers floating around my realm.
Just a short reminder:These artifacts were and still are great weapons. Currently no one is wielding or using them. The biggest invasion ever is coming towards us, so why the hell shouldnt we take the strongest killing tools of our history to help us in battle? I always thought it was utterly stupid how, for example, Ashbringer is such a powerfull and holy weapon against the undead, but after the death of the Lichking Tirions says "Enough for me, I'm out and Ashbringer with me. It wont be yield against anything except undead - and also not by anyone but me!". Bloodscream, the weapon of the Hellscream-Orc clan has always been a powerful and fearsome axe. We got it in Karazahn, Garrosh wieldet it (and $%^&ed it up) and Grommash is using it now. Why shouldnt we take our use out of it?And since these weapons are used by our comrades or just lying around, why should we start a faked hell-of-work quest to gain it? I think its totally legit and cool that we start into Legion with these Artifact Weapons (haha, the Deathknight twohand axe is totally atificial and absolutely not legendary regarding lore!) and its also totally okay for me that we use our time on the new found isles to empore these weapons against a greater thread than before./e:And you remember Sulfuras, the mace forget by ingredients including a core from Ragnaros, flamelord, himself? How could THAT thing not at least be an average weapon against the Lichking or his servants? Somewhere on this freezing continent there should be a reason why Sulfuras would be THE weapon against at least one kind of enemy.
It will be interesting to see what the new Survival hunter weapon is, since it is now a melee spec? They didn't say if it would be a dual wield or two handed spec.
Every spec gets their own unique weapon set, this weapon is the only weapon you'll be having for the expansion if I have understood things right.Did this help?
Do mine eyes decieve me? Survival getting a Spear and possibly being the Melee spec for hunter?
