    5.2 Transmogrification Rules = New Markets for Weapons?

    Now that Main-hand and Off-hand weapons cease to exist, certain weapons will go up substantially in price in 5.2.

    My immediate thought is of the Blade of Wizardry. It's essentially a glowier version of Teebu's Blazing Longsword. It's now finally one-handed.

    Therefore, the price will likely skyrocket. Luckily, I bought one long ago for 6k! Sadly, I only bought one.

    Thoughts? Other similar weapons?

    Hrm, I should start camping the AH for that Blade then. I got one for personal use for 4k. If nothing else I need one for my DK besides my Lock now, ideally before any possible price spike. Haven't seen another one that cheap, unfortunately ...

    Some folks don't like farming for stuff and have the gold to not have to farm.

    I actually have farmed for a few BC items and haven't had good luck getting them, so I just check the AH periodically.

    Well most of the BOP weapons actually look better than the BOE weapons, so no...

    I'm just glad I can now transmog my swords/axes into maces. Maces fit paladin SOOOO much more!

    I think you're confusing it with the BLUE "glowing" sword from The Slave Pens. this one is a TBC World drop, don't know where else you've got that 20% from.

    Spellfire Longsword has a 17 percent drop rate from normal mode Slave Pens, yeah.



    Looks good enough to me considering how easy it is to get in comparison to the world drop items.

    Aren't all 2handers inter xmogable too now? Aside from polearms to staves and vice verse?

    Most definitely it will open a bit of a new market. Or just stimulate the current one. I too won an auction for blade of wizardry for 5k. Next day after the patch notes. It went up to 25k on my realm. Still can't decide if I want to sell it since im already well off. It does have a nice light-saber look.

    Yes, as long as they share the same animation.

    What do you mean same animation? Can't I take any 2handed Mace and make it look like any 2handed Axe for example?

    Yeah you can make a 2hand axe look like a 2hand mace or 2hand sword (or viceversa)

    And when he say "as long as they have the same animation" he means that the animations used for those weapons are the same, for example and orc warrior use the same animation to attack with a 2hand sword, axe and mace, but the animation is different if he use a polearm.

    I'd say weapon prices will go through the roof for all swords, maces, and axes. Especially the BC epic weapons.

    1h maces, axes, and swords can be interchanged.
    2h maces, axes, and swords can be interchanged.
    bow, xbow, and gun can be interchanged. (old news)
    fist weapons cannot be interchanged.
    staves cannot be interchanged.
    daggers cannot be interchanged.
    polearm cannot be interchanged.

    "Times change."

    Beware the claims of yearly expansions. It's not more hype more often, it's paying more for less. Fewer tiers, no more new levels, no more new races/classes, but an ever-increasing price tag....

    BC weapons aren't selling for crap now, including the ones not effected by the MH/OH rules, why would they sell in 5.2?
    A whole lot of BoP stuff that used to be restricted will now be getting farmed.

    True, but it make get a little expencier, cause there will be more people wanting those items, so also there will be more people farming them to sell them, and with these the prices will go up (i don't think it will be really expencive but the prices will raise)

    Hopefully some days polearms will be interchangeable with the others, DK with certain polearms look badass.

    From the other side, feral druids used to be able to use the occasional two-handed mace, and I still have a few of them stored up for sentimental purposes. An old Earthwarden and the mace we got from the Quel'delar questline, in particular. I really don't care about being able to swap between staves and polearms, but being able to bring the maces out of retirement would be great.
