    (Mostly) Weapons in 5.2

    As copied from the petopia forums(my post):


    Hey there, I might have some interesting stuff for you. You'll probably know most of it, but I guess dataminers haven't realized a few other things with certain models, or they just didn't bother showing it. I'm referring to the first two gifs.

    The shot is a bit wonky, but it appears Blizzard has given hunters something extra. I made it a gif to show the 'bowrelease' animation, which triggers a shot of electricity.

    Same for the gun. It takes a bit longer, but you'll see as long as you keep your eye on it. Personally, I think it could potentially be darn cool, and could give hunter weapons that extra needed flavor. Not sure if it's been done before, but I think it has potential!

    Zandalari Bow. Pretty cool.

    Mogu Spear. Nothing special, but I thought it looked pretty rad.

    A Mogu Sword. WoWhead only had the icon, no idea why, but it looks pretty nice.

    Archaeology Gun. Icon has been datamined, but the model hasn't been shown yet, as far as I know.

    Plate wearers rejoice; the way it was named in the files, and with Blizzard hinting at it, you platies are apparently going to be able to wear the crown of the Thunder King, Lei Shen, itself.


    BONUS PIC:

    This one boggled me, since it hasn't been used in game, as far as I know, but the new Scholomance has been available since MoP. I do remember that an icon was datamined for it, but the icon and this model were apparently never used. I hope Blizzard does so now. How long this has been in the files, I don't know. I sort of hope it's a new patch 5.2 model, so it's still possible that Blizzard will update the model.

    Mh..

    Thanks for the awesome sig, Lady Amuno.

    Ooo, the crown is neat.

  3. #3
    Thanks! That crown looks amazing :O!

    And hurray for the hunter weapons "flashing animations". Pretty cool ^_^

    It's gonna be a cool patch!

    That crown is indeed amazing. It brings me back to the Ragnaros time, with Sulfuras in 4.2.


    I love it when bosses drop items they have on them. It's so cool to be wearing things like that.


    And yeah, I love the hunter weapon animations already. It will obviously look better in-game. I hope they keep the idea a recurring one. Shooting lightning at mobs is 10 times cooler than the same old arrow, imo!

    Thanks for the awesome sig, Lady Amuno.

    Maybe this staff is the model of the updated herlooms? blizz sayd they where going to introduce the creation screen sets, and this staff looks perfect for it.

    HOLY SHIT, love the new vanilla Warlock staff.

    I really wish the new character selection screen armor like the updated Dreadmist armor is put into the game for mogging, and that staff would go perfectly with it.

    And that sword of perfect for an orc blademaster.
    If you like my draw-rings. http://yig.deviantart.com/

    The sword kind of reminds me of the ashbringer.

    And I must have that crown!

    That staff was added at the start of MoP, it saddens me greatly that it hasn't actually been used.


    Btw, since we're talking about weapons it may interest you guys to know that several race-class specific weapons have been added in this patch. Dunno if they're actually going to be used or not but some of them look pretty cool. I'll add some screenshots if I can be bothered at some point.

    So far there's:

    Orc Warrior Axe
    Worgen Death Knight Sword
    Draenei Paladin Mace
    Dwarf Hunter Bow
    Night Elf Druid Staff
    Undead Rogue Dagger
    Troll Shaman Fist Weapons
    Tauren Shaman Fist Weapons
    Human Priest Staff
    Gnome Warlock Staff

    It looks like an improved version of the Headmaster's Charge/Will... maybe they wanted to use it for that/Gandling's new model, but then changed their minds(or just forgot about it).

    Im rather excited, I can't wait to see all the new weapons in game. WTB more glowy effects!

  11. #11
    nice affects from those weapons! i always wished for something like that. rather than the white line of a shot or arrow, or something to enhance it atleast.

    and thats a pretty neat helm

  12. #12
    I hope Blizzard sticks with an idea like that. Effects like that do make hunters a bit more fun, I think.



    And yeah, I also hope they give that staff some use; it's a bit of a shame that it's unused as of right now.

    Thanks for the awesome sig, Lady Amuno.

    I wonder if, like in Firelands 4.2, 5.2 has a bunch of boe weapons.
