    Class-specific weapons with racial themes datamined in 5.2

    Patch 5.2 has added a set of class-specific weapons with racial themes!

    Each weapon has 4 different colour schemes, but I've only listed one of each to save space. I have no idea how these may be obtained or even if they're going to be used in the game at all but Blizzard generally do not create icons unless they plan on the items being obtainable by players.

    Some of them are a bit.. meh in my opinion but the rest are quite cool.

    (click the images to enlarge)





    Icons:




    So far I've found:

    Worgen Death Knight 2h Sword
    Orc Warrior 2h Axe
    Draenei Paladin 1h Mace
    Dwarf Hunter Bow
    Troll Shaman Fist Weapons
    Tauren Shaman Fist Weapons
    Night Elf Druid Staff
    Goblin Rogue Daggers
    Undead Rogue Daggers
    Blood Elf Mage Staff
    Human Priest Staff
    Gnome Warlock Staff
    Pandaren Monk Staff
    A generic Gnome Axe

    Blizzard continue to add more and more with each PTR build.

    Very cool! Wonder where they'll come from.

    Troll is Monk, not Shaman.

    It definitely says Shaman in the game files. All of these weapons are labeled under class & race names.

    Well, if you look the shaman logo and the fist weapon, you might see the connection.

    Why would they make 2 for shaman though? And both can't be used for Elem.

    I absolutely love the DK sword. I've always wanted a nice looking rune weapon. The others in game don't have much detail. Really hope they release some details on how these will be obtained as I'll definitely be going out my way to get it if it's possible.

    I agree, it has to be something gimmicky. Maybe from the Lighting forge, or maybe from different profession quests from different racial trainers.

    Possibly.

    I know the classic weapons were revealed to be lost BC weapons.

    and again rogues got shafted. Plain looking lvl 40 daggers

    Are they actually race and/or class restricted?

    I quite like the Troll fist. And the druid staff and the sword are pretty good.

    Are there ANY good looking daggers in the game though?

    Who knows? Perhaps the Tauren fist weapons are the monk ones? At any rate, what the troll has is unquestionably a shaman item.

    Bah, probably. That would suck. I think that class preview gear should be made available for xmog somehow. So hopefully those and these will, also. Maybe the forge in the 5.2 area

    I don't think so, unless they plan to do weapons for every race/class combo, which I suppose they should either way.

    They already do that don't they?
    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.
