    Artifact Weapon or Transmog?

    We've now, more than likely, seen all the launch models for the artifact weapons. Now the question can be posed: will you be using the artifacts, or will you be mogging them?

    If you havent seen them, they are all here:

    My dwarf warrior is strictly mace-only.
    I'll finish writing this signature soon™, hopefully, maybe, probably, abso....

    I'll use them as their skins, though I'll mog them eventually to other weapons, but I routinely change the dress of my battle barbie because at the end of the day that's what the game is.

    Getting the new dress, dollhouse and all the accessories.

    There's a couple skins I like, but i'll probably end up transmoging them eventually. I've spent more on transmog than flight paths at this point.

    I actually hope they won't increase the size of fury artifact much. I love the size, and it seems more realistic to swing these bad boys really fast than some stupid oversized two hander.

    No way I'm gonna use any of that ugly artifact skins... Transmog saves the day for me

    Since my fury warrior isn't a rogue addicted to TRON style gear, I will definitely transmog my artifacts into proper warrior weapons.
    If I was playing a sci-fi ninja in an 80s cartoon, I would love these swords though.

    Mogging everything except the fury ones, those look nice (not awesome, but nice). The arms one especially looks like blue quest rewards. The prot one is super meh as well.

    Then you look at the Mage, Dk, Pala artifacts (to name but a few) and they are on a completely different level, its honestly like looking at stuff from another game altogether. They look like artifacts.

    Will only keep the protection shield because there are one or two nice ones. Everything else will get mogged.

    Funny that there were so many that didn't like the Fury artifacts but it looks like most will be using them anyway...

    For me it's gonna be Transmog. If I even end up playing a warrior.... (and yes, that decision partially based on the look of the artifact).

    There are a couple of the Arms skins that I like;until/if I get those Lionheart Executioner shall remain mogged until that time

    I'm a little torn on arms since I quiet like the skull one. But, my Gob uses maces and axes, so no arms for me.

    Was torn on the fury, but I just really like the helheim themed swords.

    Prot... poor poor prot. The models are decent, but whomever colored them must be colorblind.

    That really is as it should be and something Blizz is banking on. The whole expansion seems to be trying to get us to concentrate on one character, unlocking skins through achievements, class based storylines and all that.

    So yeah, the aesthetics of a class, artifact weapon plus transmog, are key pieces towards getting things right and keeping us in our mains.

    Which I look forward to, I've got 5 100s and trying to keep all of them at a specific baseline gear level and progression is exhausting.

    Not a fan of the fury artifacts but the Arms artifact is quite nice imo. The different styles really change it up too so you never get too bored with one look. Wish I could say the same for fury, all the different versions seem to similar imo.

    I hope they introduce other weapon type models for them as well. Would be a shame if we had to use a sword the entire expansion

    None of them are particularly striking to me, so they will be transmogged into something else no matter the spec. Dragon_sword_01, dragon_sword_04, generic 2hander 01, generic_1h_and_shield04...boring.

    Why does the Prot only have 1 skin? Meh not a massive fan of any of these weapons at all, so probably transmog.

    One question I have is why do we have so much neon green and purple getting thrown on our weapons. I actually don't mind most designs but wow are some of these colors ever garish.

    I'll probably use the arms artifact since most mogs look like crap anyway.

    I typically prefer to use swords, so I'll mostly use the Fury and Arms artifacts as is. I'll xmog them out with something else if I feel like using a different weapon type though.

    Really, I think the models look pretty good - it's just a real shame that the only option is a sword for every spec.

    I think the Prot sword is terrible looking though - I'll certainly xmog that out with something that has a little more effort put into it... About half of the shield models look good though.
