    I think it's important to note here that this is how the glaives should sheath, functionally.

    When your character flexes his/her elbows to reach his/her weapons, it's important that when they reach it, it's ready for battle. The other way around would mean that your character would reach the blades by the side they are meant to attack with.

    It's as if a greatsword would be weld with the blade looking upward. Not very efficient.

    Wouldn't it be the most logical way to have them sheathe on your waist like one handed swords? Like, just hang them there and grab 'em when you need them.

    I mean, I know this isn't about realism, but I always wondered why they went with the back sheathe in the first place.

    And then you'd fall on your back and cut your arms! I don't think it's really functional to sheath them on the side. I know we're talking about Warcraft here, with swords spewing lava and shoulders that would literally crush a regular human being, but considering the fact that glaives are two-bladed swords, sheathing them on your back is the most compact (and safest) way to carry them.

    Take a look at NPC's around the fel hammer and the pvp warglaives.

My bet is Blizz wanted handles turned to chars back and misslooked how its turning out until was too late for patch compile.
    They will fix it, no doubt.
    This is rediculous. There is something called: "willing suspension of disbelief" in fiction. If I'm watching Star wars and a guy riding a magical unicorn trots in, even though it's all fiction that would break the context laws and rules of the fictional universe.

    Clipping and non-functional trangmog is a BREAK in the "willing suspension of disbelief" and a major BREAK of Immersion!

    Unfunctional sheath and clipping is irritating, makes no sense, breaks immersion pointing out it's a programed game. Breaks the 3rd wall....

    Frankly it's lazy stingy game development to not deal with clipping and take the time to make things look realistic and functional.....

    Edit: they look better now than they did, but the previously posted corrected pics of the glaives vertical would be better.

    Not when the very point of them is nostalgiafactor, and the way they were sheathed was a big part of it.

    Also, by that logic, Blizzard has to adjust all the glaives that DHs are currently using, as they are also "unrealistic."

    wow, people actually talking about how "functional" glaives sheath in a game where you shoot fireballs, turn into a demon, etc... i dont know why would anyone like this sheath style, it looks absolutely awful, and all of the dh glaives sheath like original glaives except that they fixed the shield(its not facing ur chars back), i think they wanted to fix the glaives like that but they f*cked it up

    Easy to spot the fakes from the originals.
    ...you need the originals to get the 'fakes'. The people who have the mog are those who got it from actually doing what was required.
    Grawr!

    I never did like that the originals had to do a buggy looking flip-flop when they were unsheathed as well as the crazy shoulder clipping. Now that actually behave like hey should.

    Looks like they were just hotfixed back to the old sheath animation, except with the handguards facing outwards.

    Anyone else confirm?

    Not bad. At least it doesn't clip through the shoulders or head which was my biggest complaint with the originals.

    I miss the old 'new' version still. That was a unique appearance and looked cool on female blood elves. The new fix clips my arms when I run but to be fair a lot of warglaives do that to female belfs.

    Glad they're back to how they were. Also happy they made the shields on them face outwards rather than inwards while they were at it!

    Same.

    While I understand where people come from by saying they flip while sheathing, This is how they have been for the past 10 years
