I love weapons with a long a bloody past around them. For lore's sake the game really needs more of them. I hope they come up with something brand new but in case they don’t her’s my idea.
It got me to thinking, what if the Old Legendary Weapons that we loved and pined for in previous expansions were given a fresh does of Titanic Power which could make them a match for the upcoming battle with the Legion (or worse) ? .
A simple set of Sockets and Wrathion gems could replace the meager stats given at the time they were earned. A Set of quests could empower you mastery/haste/crit from learning to wield it like their former masters did in raid combat. The final quest could be to reignite the spark of their special ability and bring that up to par with current raid tier.
Twin Blades of Azzinoth
Golad, Twilight of Aspects \ Tiriosh, Nightmare of Ages
Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings
Thori'dal, the Stars' Fury
Andonisus, Reaper of Souls
Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker
This isn’t a request to give everyone a Shadowmourne. It is just an idea that would take Shadowmourne off the shelf one last time if we had to go “All or Nothing” War with the Legion at its best. Why Transmog when you can infuse the real thing with competitive POWER.
