Not really a complaint as more of a nit pick really.
Being an avid WoW player since Vanilla you kind of notice a lot of things change over the years, one of those that I have just noticed didn't hit me until I saw the recent front page to MMO-Champion.
I looked at this weapon and thought. "What is that?" I mean sure, clear as day its a sword, but I really cant tell you how overblown this sword looks, sure its fantasy so swords are supposed to look fantasy-esque, but there's suspension of disbelief and then there this...
Remembering how weapons used to look at raid level in vanilla Wow (yea here come those nostalgia goggles), I remembered weapons even getting from raid bosses looking less crazy than that.
The weapon above is Bonereaver's Edge, a weapon from Ragnaros in Molten Core.
I am not sure where to place it, if its the freedom of detail and textures developers have to work with now that makes the current weapons look so overblown or the fact that we are running out of simple weapon designs.
Remember this is not a complaint more of a nit pick and observation.
What do you think have weapons and even armor gotten a bit over the top in terms of design and appearance of the more crazier the better??
