    Shit pic, but I couldn't get any better from the BfA demo.
    Yeah, I was referring to this picture earlier, yet this discussion still goes on for some reason.

    runeblades are "iconic weapons" for DK, but they weren't given their own unique weapon type. Just plain 2h swords.

    If anything, DH would get "runeblades" as fist weapons or 1h swords like warglaives.

    There'll at least be a few new Glaive designs I'm sure. I'm actually really interested to see if they go the route of having like, a Zandalari-inspired warglaive. That sounds awesome.

    But yeah, given quest rewards are spec specific and personal loot is a thing, I expect at least a couple. They're so cool I can see the art team doing it just because glaives are cool.

    I've got basically all of my artifact appearances and colors anyway though, so I've got plenty of variety even if they don't. Still, it would be a shame to not have something thematically approrpriate to swing around.

    I really hope they give professions fun things to craft again, and BS should be able to make some warglaives.

    This is why I don't like them abandoning class artifacts. Yes, the artifact grind sucks, but in terms of class identity I liked that no rogue was getting their hands on a warglaive in legion.

    Classes should feel distinct in the weapons they use and how their weapons look.

    It's also why I'm not looking forward to the tier sets for these raids. Now that they are not class themed, a warrior and a death knight will look virtually the same, as will a demonhunter and a rogue.

    There's a possibility they'll put them in many dungeons and raids.
    We have personal loot, so there's no way a non-DH gets a warglaive outside of raids.
    Inside of raids, personal loot is still a thing, unless you use master looter, in which case it's very probable you either have a lot of players, and to get all buffs, a DH, so warglaive is not completely useless, or are a mythic guild, in which case you would use ML even if you shard 80% of the loot, and will definitely have at least 1 DH.

    A runeblade is still a sword. They are made the exact same way as regular swords, just with more DK wizardry at the end. A glaive is a completely different weapon.

    But most likely there will just be one or two Warglaives per tier.
    I REALLY like this idea. It will help a lot instead of waiting for a specific kind of weapon for a specific person.

    i wanna say yes, but my faith in blizzard is corrupted. so i don't think so.


    Either way, i won't like a Zandalari themed glaive anyway. lul
    Signature was infraaaaaaaaaacted. Need a new one!

    Why wouldn't they?

    Only demon hunters carry the artifact weapon to bfa It seems they were little behind with dps.

    You're welcome

    ofc they added a new class with a specific weapon type and not a single weapon for them.

    Its rather obvious that you are indeed gonna get glaives.

    Yep, this was an essential bit of a warrior tank's kit.

    This was the case from Cata thoughout WoD. And we saw plenty of ranged weapon drops with unique designs, which only hunters equipped and used.

    I don't get why so many quoted it like there was something factually wrong.

    I'm hoping that BFA weapons are similar to artefacts in that one item covers two slots.

    Honestly, I would be on board with that.

    It always sucked having offhand + onehand as BIS compared to just a staff.

    Keywords: able to use

    Warriors and Rogues were able to use ranged weapons. They didn't have much of a use outside of being stat sticks, but they could be equipped and fired, just like a hunter could.

    The initial statement just says "for years" which is vague and unspecific. It was not until MoP that bows became main hand weapons and warriors/rogues could not use them anymore. Cata just removed the ammo requirement.

    Shoo.

    Maybe 1 per tier at most, given that we can use other weapontypes. It's not a dagger or ranged situation where they don't have alternatives, so it unfortunately just clutters the loot table (another reason going back to weapon drops is a bad idea)

    Either that or they're going to give them to other classes.
