    There are no more Sha-Touched weapons forthcoming. If you've been diligent about helping Wrathion and continue to do so, your reward in 5.2 is going to be a legendary meta-gem that can go in any helmet.

    Not necessarily worthless. Depends on what weapons are available next patch.

    yup, worthless. they get deleted as soon as the patch launches, and any progress you made with those items is undone.

    While you won't be using your sha-touched anymore, there's no reason why the prismatic socket won't still be used.

    I haven't completed the questline, but doesn't adding a socket require that the weapon is sha-touched?

    They aren't worthless because you'll be using them for progression, probably until heroic :U

    Good point, never mind that then, looks like we'll be weighing up our loss of stats in getting our new weapons.

    Considering next tier drops 522 ilvl gear. yes your sha weapons are going to be obsolete pretty quick. Even the LFR versions of 5.2 weaps will be better lol.

    I am going to suggest holding on to your sha touched weapons even though the new stuff is going to be higher ilvl. We don't know where the Wrathion quests conclude, so it's possible that your current sha touched weapon is going to be the final upgrade to it all. One never knows. Now, I understand that the chances of this are rather slim, but I would think it would be worth at least holding on to until we get a confirmed ending for Wrathion.

    Maybe they have plans to use your upgraded sha touched weapon to create a legendary weapon...or at least to change it into something more relevant. Really does seem a waste if not.

    you wont the thunderking normal weapons beat the 2/2 heroic weapons easily, 517 vs 522, the 522 wins, and if it is close, for sure the 528/535/541 totally blow them away i do think this is kind of silly, any new alts/players will have to do the first wrathion chapter questline but gain nothing from it if they have a weapon from the thunderking raid.

    Yes, they will unquestionably remove the +500 primary stat and free socket, and create a system where people on the most advanced stage of the legendary quest have a less powerful setup than the people who're just getting started.

    There can be no doubt that it's anything except a plan to nerf it all into the ground. Because they don't like you. Yes, you. It's personal. Sorry.

    On a more realistic note, I don't think there's much to do at this point except hurry up & wait. We'll see in time.

    That's probably just a placeholder. Notice how a lot of the items have the same exact secondary stats as the 5.0 weapons (and there's even agi and str weapons with spirit).

    If that were the case then you would not be able to vendor it or DE it and removing it from your bags would give you the type delete pop up. The weapons were the vehicle to hold the legendary gem, just like the helm will be the vehicle for the legendary metas. The actual legendary item(non gem), will not bee seen until the last raid. So DE it or vendor it unless you like them ugly 'sumbitches fro mogging. I have already DEd 4 of em.

    Basically this. I don't see why they would require you to have weapons from 2+ tiers ago. It would REALLY discourage switching classes, as you'd have to clear old content in order to get it.

    very true, but the Ilvl gave me hope

    i know the prismatic socket is pretty much makes the weapon become a sah weapon, but if the weapon already has a socket and the socket bonus will make it even better

    i was kinda hoping the sha weapons would continue, they add something to farm for, also i hope the dont remove the meta legendary gem after 5.2 tier as it fits any meta socket, i can see them doing it, i wouldnt mind spending 10k a time to buy a new gem if i got a new helm
