    That'd be true if every strength weapon in each tier was identical
    Usually different weapons are budgeted differently though, two of the same polearm might be better in terms of stats than two of the same axe

    It's kind of hard to expect something like that, given how integral the idea was to a very long class specific desire. I'm all for class quests, but a DK frostwyrm mount would be kind of... pointless.
    In the grand scheme of DPS, so is green fire.

    It's entirely cosmetic, as would be a frostwyrm. And warlocks will be using it for a loooong time, like a DK could use a frostwyrm.

    A weapon will be thrown away in 6.0, a mount lasts forever.

    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....

    Oh true, but we aren't talking about something where Warriors would HAVE to get the 2 polearms. Well unless they're in a really razor's edge guild.

    If this is indeed a warrior quest for dual wielding polearms....they'd have to let you transmog other weps into polearms first considering there's hardly many strength polearms you'd have double of with stats you want unless 5.4 has an influx of them.

    On a side note if this is a return of class quests with warriors in 5.4 and then locks in 5.2, i'd expect pallys and hunters in the near to not so distant future. Hunters would be given their signature quiver on their back they've been asking for for years. Pallies(while pink spells makes sense and would be the ultimate troll), we may finally see librams at our sides another thing that's been asked for for years. Hunters will most likely happen first and they'll base the reaction to displayable vanity as they go forward with pallies and see where that goes for other classes.

    I got this guys.

    Each of the individual barricades that form the perimeter fence have three individual spiked prongs.

    The dragon has seven visible spines on its head and lower back, which correlates with the letter "G"

    Multiply that by two, the number of NPCs present in the camp, and you get 14, which corresponds with the letter "N"

    So we end up with "G" "N" and 3"


    I think I can safely claim that half life three has been confirmed.




    anyway... It seems pointless for them to add a quest "giving" warriors the ability to dual-wield polearms... as they'd have to create new polearms, inconveniencing people in drops (aw dang I got a weapon from LFR and a polearm from raiding, but I can't use the polearm) and potentially inflating loot tables pointlessly.

    The "allowing warriors to TRANSMOG into Dual-wield polearms" seems... a little... more viable, but as has been pointed out, that's one half of one spec.

    Warriors will be able to dual wield pole arms in 5.4 just transmog 2h to polearm

    If there are going to be any quests for Warriors I don't think dual-wield polearms would be it, just another feature of 5.4. Making a quest for it would be incredibly underwhelming as it only benefits a portion of one spec (Fury) who is also interested in polearms....just no.

    If it IS a Dual Wield polearm for warrior's questline, then Polearms had better make a MASSIVE appearance in future content. It'd be a huge waste of time to only get 2 str polearms per expansion and thats it.

    I expect to see Polearms get the Staff treatment--you'll get some itemized for druids and monks, and some itemized for warriors, death knights, and paladins.

    You funnin' with me or did I seriously forget that much about the core mechanics of a class I used to main in Wrath? Both are equally-likely...

    They can use both.

    On topic: I hope this is the part where blizzard said they'd make warrior visuals more interesting, still missing rogue visuals though.

    Well, I know the old joke about pallies and maces. Mine rocked a mean Verigan's Fist back in the day. Had forgotten about polearms, though, since I haven't seriously played mine since falling in love with my warrior again.

    Makes me wonder what they've got in mind. Warriors, thematically, are a pretty basic class. You pick up a big weapon or two, or a shield, and beat the everloving hell out of stuff with it/them. I think our most visually-engaging abilities are, what, Dragon's Roar, Avatar, and maybe the bleed effect from Bloodbath? I mean, there is a whole lot of room for improvement, but I'm scratching my head as to what they'd have in mind that wouldn't thematically fit death knights, paladins, or even monks and hunters better.

    Everyone bringing up DK frostwyrm is aware there are already frostwyrm mounts available in game, right? Making a class only quest to get a reskin of something you can already get seems like it would be a bit....unimpressive.

    Akin to how greenfire is simply a reskin of their fire spells? (Just pointing it out)

    I'd be happy with a frost wyrm, if it looked like sapphiron. Mostly, I'm hoping its a warrior quest for something. Anything would be cool.

    I guess you have a point, but it was something unique warlocks had been asking for specifically for a long time. A frostwyrm is just like....I dunno, "here's a mount that pretty easy to get now anyway." I'd hope a class specific quest would be a little more nifty than that, but that's just me.
