    Dunno why they keep going back to old items, why not just make new and improved ones.

    This pretty much sums up how the graphical quality has gone up over the years (and not just the models).

    Because it's easier and faster to just update textures and not make all new models.

    Okay, there we go. Things like this are just awesome. Maybe they will update all the armor/weapons to go with the new character models?

    These are iconic and good models anyway. Why not give them a texture enhancement?

    Awww yeah! I was just talking about this a few days ago how the gear in Vanilla/BC looked vs wrath and so on. I would love to see all gear get remodeled to up to date items.

    I don't know, I think new textures seem to be enough.

    Damn I want that bow to be transmogable so badly. Got my toon decked in red and black and that bow would look perfect with my outfit.

    I totally agree with that.

    They're probably being updated because Siege of Orgrimmar trash will most likely have mobs using those weapons. XD

    That would be awesome if true! I'd actually like to see them go back and update all the mounts.

    These theories about character models are getting silly. You really see it in everything.

    If they are updating that shield, they should add the crest of the Blood Elves, Goblins and Huojin Pandaren.

    I agree. It will most likely be used on the hundreds and hundreds of Kor'kron trash mobs we will fight in the raid.
    So don't get your hopes up.

    awesome! I really appreciate that Blizzard keep updating the game and adding new stuffs.

    I think you are on to something, that makes really the most sense. I don't see why they would update the textures of old Horde pvp gear just for the fun of it, and since there are no alliance weapons in there, you are probably right.

    That shield looks way better with the new textures.

    I kinda like the old dagger though, I always loved the glow on it.

    Wish they would do this with a lot of the Vanilla armor and weapons, so much of it looks great model-wise, but terrible texture-wise.

    just man up and say "i just want people to know i saw this first", that's what your 2 posts are about, right?
