    Blizzard Updating Level 60 PvP Weapon Skins [Large Images Inside].

    Did some digging today and it looks like Blizzard are updating a few of the old weapons with new skins. Only a few are available, I expect to see some Alliance ones/the rest of the Horde ones in there by next patch. This is what is available thus far:

    1H Axe:


    2H Axe:


    1H Sword:


    Shield:


    Polearm:


    1H Mace:


    Dagger:


    Bow:


    No idea where they're from, but thought it was worth a show. Didn't Ghostcrawler say that there'd be some fancy new PvP rewards or the like a few weeks back?

    or this kind of goes along with the idea of, if theyre going to give us updated character models, theyre going to have to go back and update quite a few of the old textures on the old model items.

    It might be for Garrosh's Kor'kron goons. It makes sense that they'd use standard issue Horde weapons.

    Is there no chance these Horde items could drop from the Org raid?

    I already made a thread for this before, but thanks to you for making comparisons. For some reason, back then, I could not get the shield texture to work. Anyway -- thanks!

    No, because then they'd be labelled as Orgrimmar loot. These are still labelled "pvphorde".

    Eh. Don't worry. I didn't add the original version of the weapons to the screenshots for comparison, so your pictures are still a lot more useful. Plus you have the shield. Don't worry at all.

    Meh, the old 2h axe looks better.

    I'm also waiting for someone to start a conspiracy theory about the new shield because it has a line crossed through the Forsaken emblem.

    This is most likely just NPC gear.

    While this is a very interesting find, I think it's unlikely they drop. Unless of course they give a way for updated Grand Marshal modeled weapons to drop as well. Would be terribly unfair on the High Warlords otherwise.

    I'm pretty sure they're going to be high end PvP rewards. Similar to the last time they made level 60 weapons and gear available (what was that through, RBG's?), but this time round them come with updated skins.

    It's great, those skins are ancient. Alex is glad that they are not changing models, only sharpening lines and adding detail.

    It's kinda boggling how much better they can make them look while still retaining the same fundamental appearance

    Portends good things for updated character models, methinks !

    Yes... Yes.... But how???

    Same here, the old 2-handed axe looks much better.
    And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
