    It's already relatively annoying to spot the difference between a monk and rogue (having to check the buffs ugh). Besides, it would only ruin certain weapons' uniqueness that are put on the back by default.

    It should be a standard display option for all characters on how they sheathe their weapon. More customization is something this game gravely needs.

    Rogues are all about quickness... if you're walking and you need to grab your blade quickly, do you think it'll take less time to grab the blade at your hip or to stick your hand up and grab the obvious blade on your back? Leave the back weapons to classes that have a reason to have it there... a 2-3 lb dagger doesn't go on your back... a 15-20 lb 2H will because you'd be tired of your pants falling down if you carried something heavy like that on your belt.
    Most likely the wisest Enhancement Shaman.

    I'd appreciate an option to game to sheathe the weapon on the back, Hailstorm looks so good sheathed on the back, but I main assn soo.

    Give rogues tank spec! Then we can have weapons on back as a spec feature.

    monks only have weapons on their back because of the jab animation

    it would look retarded as hell if they did the jab animation from a weapon sheathed at the hip

    This makes as much sense as talking about physics (weapon draw speed...) in a game with flying dragons. None, to be precise.
    A witty saying proves nothing.

    To be honest: Everything looks awful on trolls

    OT: I love back sheathed weapons. There are way too few. To have that option would be amazing!

    Not everything. Just helms and back-sheathed weapons.

    I'd take it as a major glyph. Fuck warriors.

    You can transmog daggers to:
    Twinblade of the Hakkari
    or
    Twinblade of the Hakkari
    Still better than nothing. :-)
