    The legendary daggers Golad/Tiriosh are the nicest weapons this game has ever seen imo, want more looking like them!
    I hated the looks of them personally at the final stage and the blade was god awful big.

    The problem wasn't the daggers themselves but Landslide. You had these beautiful, well thought-out complex designed Daggers and then.. Landslide..

    You don't remember the moment you grew up..It happened while you were sleeping,
    one night between the day we played and the day we never played again.

    Because until recently devs were too stupid to let all rogue specs use fancy swords, and realized we'd transmog right out of them if allowed. So they made bigger daggers so we could pretend we had swords.

    But mostly because no one likes looking at their character fighting and realizing that you can't see them do anything cool because rogue visuals are bad, and combined with small weapons makes it even more uninspiring. There's plenty of tiny dagger models too though.

    You do realize the original versions were swords, but with all the changes since then, was easier to make them daggers for rogues.

    Dagger - > Shortsword
    Shortsword - > Arming sword
    Arming sword - > Bastard sword
    Bastard sword - > Greatsword
    Greatsword - > Sweet Mother Theresa on the hood of a Mercedes Benz wtf are you doing with that gigantic slab of metal?

      a short knife with a pointed and edged blade, used as a weapon.



    And then we have nearly ever dagger for several raid tiers now being as big as 1h swords. Shouldn't daggers be smaller?

    inb4 ermgh is this srsly what we're complaining about now!
    Fantasy game... have to at least maintain some level of looking awesome when other people are running around with two-hand weapons that are as tall as they are. My mog would be that much less awesome looking if they were small.

    These arguments aren't any more accurate than the exaggerated wow models. Daggers can actually be quite large. When plate armor became common, real daggers often came close to 20 inches in length, which is 4 inches shy of two feet long. It makes perfect sense for a rogue to use longer daggers since they are using them in combat against heavily armor enemies with large weapons. Historically, the length of daggers is usually based on the length needed to efficiently penetrate a likely target. If it takes 20 inches to penetrate a man in plate, image what you would use for a Tauren.

    I like the size of the pvp daggers. They look good on my little female BE rogue.

    The size is pretty much only okay on blood elf females, another problem is that if you do not have transmogrify weapon with some weak enchant glow, all daggers will just be a big glowstick. (gief hide enchants already)

    That's not fair. Those used to be swords! They changed em to daggers in the new ZG but kept the same war blade models.

    They are fine and tbh define short. So as long as there is no exact measures from x to y, anything can be considered short when you compare it to something longer.

    Blizzard doesn't have the slightest clue how to size things properly in relation to one another. Just look how big Arthas grew in all the time up to the final confrontation. An upright standing worgen could do... things... with his testicles...
    There are too many design flaws in your game. As a result, your customers' game experience may be degraded. Fire or replace the failing developers if you don't want to see this message again.

    I reckon the only reason we're locked into Daggers is because they're the 1.8 sec weapons.

    Blizz doesn't expect people to have a brain anymore, so all swords are now the exact same 2.8 sec speed.
    If I recall correctly the Hakkari blades for instance had a fast main hand, and a slow offhand.
