    I am actualy very happy about this change, hated the fact that the only 1h weapons for a spriest in Fl were a bad itemized rnd drop dagger and a spirit mace every healing class would kick you in the nuts for rolling on ...

    I love wands, and I really like that they are making wands a 1h weapon now. Since Burning Crusade, wands have been kinda worthless and no different than a ring. You rarely see them, and they're hardly ever used. Now we get a chance to at least see them all the time, and since they will be 1h, use them far more often since they will be linked to auto-attack.

    I doubt they will just out-right stop making caster staffs/maces/daggers/swords. I see this more of Blizzard's way of giving us more diversity now with our main hand choices and making wands usable again instead of just being one more piece of equipment that's just forgotten once you equip it.

    This Thread Title is somewhat misleading. They aren't "killing" wands, they're making it much better. Saying wands are dead is like saying rogues and warriors don't have a ranged attack anymore, they do, it's just going to be their main hand weapon instead.

    Edit: Thanks for the title change, didn't mean to sound like a complainer but i actually was thrown off when i first read it.

    I changed the title of the thread. Every time I saw it, I wanted to come in here and say "BUT YOU'RE WRONG!". It's fine now.

    One-handed caster weapons, by class:

    Priest - 1H Mace, Dagger
    Mage/Warlock - 1H Sword, Dagger
    Druid - 1H Mace, Dagger, Fist Weapon (which last happened when?)
    Shaman - 1H Mace, 1H Axe, Dagger, Fist Weapon
    Paladin - 1H Sword, 1H Mace, 1H Axe

    So yeah, this is why Maces tend to be the healer weapon, and Daggers tend to be the DPS 1H Caster Weapon - Diversity amongst classes which can use it, less bloat in loot tables. Sadly, also less design in weapon styles.

    Priests got the same weapon count that other clothies do. Which makes sense. Clothies don't tend to practice with many martial weapon styles. The others are higher up in armor types, have specs that utilize different weapons, etc.

    So instead of Mace/Offhand/Wand, Daggar/Offhand/Wand, or Staff/Wand... it's Wand/Offhand, Daggar/Offhand, Mace/Offhand, or Staff.

    Though DW wands would be pretty sweet.


    Like so?
    I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.

    Gosh dang it... this is like the third idea someone has come up with today that I am now going to be sad about because it is never going to happen

    Duel wielding wands would be entertaining though

    I'm curious if the Wands will remain ranged and what role they'll fill. Daggers tended to be offensive and Maces supportive, while a Staff could be either. My gut says there will be offensive and supportive wands. Having a Ranged main weapon would be an interesting extra option. Maybe they'll put more visual effort into wands now, at the very least. Seeing a wand on people's hips will be new too I guess.

    More importantly, how the hell am I supposed to transmog my weapons if I'm using a stupid wand!?

    My guess is wands will be ranged, considering that all standard ranged weapons [bow/cbow/gun] will now be main hand as well.

    The real question is if they'll auto attack like the old wands [ie must be stationary and takes a global to activate & cancels when casting], or like a melee weapon [can have auto attacked queued while you're casting and will activate on the move].

    Into other wands? Just like how you mog a sword into a sword, or a staff into a staff.

    Well that was an overly simple answer that I completely in every which way overlooked!

    This is the sad part, seeing as many of us have banks full of everything BUT wands >.<

    Hmmmmmm i dont know guys. Did anyone else take this as an excuse to stop making new weapon models? don't get me wrong, unlike a few others, i like blizzard and what they have brought to the table..but watching metzen at blizzcon was weird. he seemed totally out of it.

    I'm good with it, especially considering our raid has had 1 (ONE) firestone drop all of Cata, I'll never get to upgrade the stupid thing anyways.

    If this was the Burning Crusade, Illidan would have a huge grin on his face upon reading your post, ready to spout his BC catch phrase.

    My fav was my old BC wand, and I got rid of it.

    We hardly ever saw them, so it always felt useless to keep wands around back then since the trans change was nowhere in sight. Not like a robe that I could still wear around town, just to prove my eternal point that they'll never take my Tier 6 or Season 3 away from me. So nice I wore it twice in different colors.
