I've always wanted to transmog some polearms on my Ret, so that would be nice.
Ah yes the good times of ICC runnin around with my heroic Bloodfall. Yes pl0x. (It was on the bis list right behind LK HC weps). Not to mention all of the other agi stuff we had as BiS in ICC, had well over 70% crit that time. Good times good times
Well the reason that the mace/hammer is the iconic Paladin/Crusader weapon is that it actually dates back to real history. A true holy man spilling blood, even in combat, was considered a "sin" by various leaders of the church. The battle mace and war hammer were implemented as a work-around as a combatant would still be able to smite their foes but not be branded a heretic by the very church they were fighting for. This wasn't widely practiced due to practicality while on the battlefield, but time does funny things to historical nuances,
With that said, a viable strength Polearm would be awesome

Doin' it live since 2008.
I miss my Blood tempered ransuer from the old school low level pally quests.
I also miss polearms in general, most of them look the best.
My vote goes for polearms.
Considering Hunters no longer use +Agi weapon, that leaves them going to Feral/Guardian druids and... maybe monk?
Yet a +Str version of polearms would be usable by Arms Warriors, Blood/Unholy and 2H Frost DK's, and of course Ret. So that's 3 classes, 5 specs that could make use of +Str polearms.
I guess it could be argued that Feral/Guardian druids only real options are Agi polearms and staves (Since do they make +Agi maces anymore?), but I wouldn't mind to see +Str polearms.

Polearms so cool, too bad they're always agility
I absolutely love Imperius' character in Diablo 3 and I'd love to use polearms <3
Let's just hope they find a way to loosen up Transmog's restrictions, and do cross-weapon mogging (much like Hunters with their Gun/Bow/Crossbow setup).
Requirements: Class must be able to wield both the base weapon AND the transmog. Might have to do some tricky stuff with Fury, due to their Titan's Grip not working with Polearms/Staves, but otherwise, shouldn't be too big a deal. Might be an issue with Wands too, since they are MH come MoP, but still Ranged in their attacking.
I got a Black Ice in my Void Storage, hoping they let us transmog to Polearms at some point, or make viable ones for us (got it while farming my Azure Drake). It's just such an amazing-looking polearm. Trying to find an armour set to match it now.
Blood Elves also got some nice Polearm/Staff combat animations, so that is a plus. Draenei do too (Male specifically, that one-handed backhand swing is kinda nice as an auto-attack animation).

Titan's Grip being the excuse for not implementing Strength Polearms has never held any weight, since they could easily add the Polearm tag to TG's programming script. Polearms have some of the best weapon models and skins in the game, it's a shame that we won't be able to use them for transmog unless Blizzard allows us to transmog across weapon types.
