    It may seem strange, but I think I understand why Blizzard has done so. Bows and guns have a much narrower pool of players that can wield them, and thusly a smaller variety of said weapons to go along with it. It's like you have a bunch of weapons stacked in one room, but with the bow/gun in another room; it may as well be its own category (which it kinda is since they're "ranged" weaps). Plus, can you believe how loud guns are? >_<

    Anyway, I hope my lousy attempt at trying to explain Blizzard's stance on it made some sense.

    I know why you can transmogrify said ranged weapons into another type of ranged weapons. You don't have to explain that to me. I just want to know why we can't have the same thing for other weapons - again, within bounds, of course. No 2H sword to staff, for example.

    Hm, I must've gone about it the wrong way then...

    Bows and guns... ok. I think in an ideal scenario, Blizzard would prefer to not have those two types be interchangeable, but feel an exception is needed because again, there are much fewer bow/gun weapons than their MH/OH slot counterparts. So going in that vein, players that could wield them (mainly hunters) would feel somewhat put out and Blizzard is trying to head that off.

    Am I getting warmer?

    My guess is blizz got lazy... It would be easier for them to just allow it across the board without bounds, but then u'll see ppl turning staffs into polearm and stuffs... to do this with bounds requires a lot of code writing... to not allow certain weapon type to be transmog into another, they have to first consider what is and is not appropriate.. and there will be a lot of QQ.. for example, if all 2H are interchangable excpet for staffs, then the casters that uses staffs gets left out, or all 1H are interchangable except for fist weapons... Then they have to consider it being role appropriate, like dagger and swords .... i dont think they like to see warriores tanking with a dagger.... Also... some class cant use certain weapon... hunter can use 2h mace, pallies cant use daggers ect...its gonna be a long process to decided on the rules, and then wait for feedback... transmog wont be going live for a few more years...

    they did mention that they will adjust the rules in the future... maybe weapons can be crossed one day.. but for now, i rather have it the way it is than wait another year for them to decide on rules.

    Worst example, considering how similar some polearms and staffs look^^

    Not sure if it's the one you meant by lookalike set , but i found today that the naruu vendor in shat sells a belt that's identical to the one from tempest keep

    I'm missing the boots myself, wich I thought only came for LWs but was happy to find Lurker drops them aswell.

    I'm going with this http://www.wowhead.com/compare?items...13;75017:2+0:0 Simple and shamanistic... Though I'm having issues with the belt and shoes.... And I personally find it a tad underwhelming... So yeah, all in all - I can't decide QQ

I dearly wish they would remove the specifics of transmogrifying weapons. I mean, a bow, crossbow, or gun can be transmogrified into either of the aforementioned ranged weapons, why can't we have the same thing across the board? Any 1H into any other 1H, any 2H into any other 2H, so on and so forth (but it'd be best if, say, a 2H axe weren't allowed to be transmogrified into a staff - that'd be a tad silly what with all those Titan's Grips).
    There are fists weapons from the new 4.3 instances. So far, it seems there is everything.

    just out of interest, can you transmog cloth gear to mail? i was thinking of using primal mooncloth robe & shoulders, with the whitemend helm. looks pretty cool on a shammy imo. if not, my priest will be using them instead & i`ll stick to my 5/8 skyshatter gear

    My guess is that 70-80% of shamans will take t5 or t6. And 100% of those enhancers taking t5 will take the hyjal fists.

    Kinda depressing.

    I'm surprised at there not being a huge influx of T2 shammy pictures.

    Depressing doesn't cut it... Oh well, could be worse though, we could be paladins. Check their version of this thread, they are all either in standard judgement, or the purple one. Same goes for the DK one, they apparently also all want to wear the purple judgement... *barf*

    I love it how people keep saying t6, t5 i love it etc etc, and yet they don't post what class they talk about.
    I myself is going for the t6 druid set with Apostle of argus as my weapon.

    Current tier set + http://www.wowhead.com/item=23839. Weapon/Shield will probably change a lot, since there's a lot of cool options.

    I'm gonna be simple and go with T2.

    I really think it fits my squid (even though I noticed there's a horde-symble on the robe if you remove the waist).
