    New Weapon Types you'd like to See?

    What new weapon types would you like to see? (Ie, throwing spades)

    Warglaives, other than the ones from Illidan that are classified as swords.

    I would like to see them bringing back an old one, bastard swords. Or what it's the same, 1H swords with a decent size. Just as shields, I have to resort to the old, classic, very good but low pixel weapons because the new ones are just too small.

    More polearms that are halberds, and less that are spears. I guess that's not exactly new, but meh.

    One-handed pistols and crossbows.

    One-handed spears for tanks

    Flails and whips. Basically, flexible weapons.

    I'd like to see more Warglaive-style swords, but I don't think they necessarily need their own weapon type. I'd love to see an expansion of staves to include quarterstaves, only difference being that classes that can dual-wield can use a quarterstaff, and each end of the weapon counts as it's own weapon. So you can imagine a rogue equipping what is otherwise a druid/monk staff and being able to still count as dual-wield. Same goes for shaman, and maybe warriors too. It might get a little finicky with monks though, there'd have to be a way to determine if you want to dual wield or use it as a 2h.

    I'd love to see a few more extravagant weapon styles. Whips could be a great one. Anything that's on a rope/chain is cool. Maybe a flail? With a suitable amount of twirling it around for no good reason.

    Swordbreakers for tanks when they want to DPS. Increases parry and counts as an offhand weapon but you can't block. Don't know how that'd work out with Warriors/Paladins since they're so focused around their shields.

    As an aside, considering they mounted all weapons for monks over the shoulder, I'd like to see a selector for where we want weapons sheathed. Honestly I limit my xmog possibilities to shoulder sheaths, since it looks awful at the waist.

    Would like more Dragon Soul Deathwing Weapons-esque Effects on Weapons instead lame +xx Stats +1 Gem Socket.

    For Models, I would like to see some new creative Ideas beyond traditional Weapons. It's a fantasy game after all so where is stuff like whip-swords



    or other innovative weapon models. Chainsaws or whatever.
    Capitalism, Ho!

    Pistols, not a hard concept to implement (just like the balance between mh+oh and 2h for casters) and they exist in Warcraft's lore.

    Not really a new weapon, but I'd like to see pallys or warriors being able to dual-wield shields. I don't know how the stats would work, though.

    Flails would be awesome.

    I'm good with the weapon types we already have, but I would like to see them go back to designing the massively oversized weapons like they used to. The epics from BWL that you can feel the weight just by looking at them... and then you have Shadowmourne which looks like a 1 hander.

    While I wouldn't be a fan, if it would be transmogable to a normal sword I would be fine with it. To each their own, I just don't like whips as weapons personally.

    I like the one handed pistols/spears ideas in this thread though. They would be pretty cool.

    Pistols/handcrossbows would be awesome. Making a distinction between spears and polearms would be nice.
