    "The Twin Blades of Azzinoth are a pair of weapons wielded by Illidan Stormrage. Azzinoth was a doom guard commander whom Illidan slew 10,000 years ago. Illidan took Azzinoth's twin warglaives and trained himself to use them. "

    Illidan Stormrage is not a warrior, dk, rogue or monk. The only guy using warglaives in TBC was a DH. I wish i could use them on my DK and Rogue but i accept this change lorewise.

    Did someone say Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker ? Now this will be everywhere Huge mistake making this transmog available without class restriction.

    DHs can use one handed sword though, because swords are easy to use, especially compared to DH style glaives. Warglaives are only classified as a swords because Glaives didn't exist as a weapon class back then.

    My throw away mule DH clearly deserved everything. Btw. this DH never ever set a foot in a TIMEWALKING dungeon/raid nor ever stepped into BT.

    I just wanna point out non-demon hunter NPCs have been using glaives (of both the 'multi-bladed throwing weapon' and 'two-bladed sword' varieties) since launch day of Vanilla. There's even a night elf shown using one on the original World of Warcraft box art. This fiction that only demon hunters are smart enough to figure out how not to cut themselves with a warglaive is a bunch of horseshit that was just part and parcel of the standard showering of attention hero classes get in order to encourage players to try 'em out. Which is fair play, but demon hunters are old news now, it's going on two expansions since they launched.

    Time to open up warglaives for non-demon hunters; if lore's such a huge sticking point all of a sudden for people who never gave a shit about lore before weapons came into question, have the night elves, trolls, and blood elves teach everyone else their secrets of spatial awareness.
    Be seeing you guys on Bloodsail Buccaneers NA!

    You think the argument is for in-game characters? wow...

That means that every class except priests and shaman can transmog their 1h melee weapon (dagger & sword) into Thunderfury. Do you see the problem now?
    You were outlining a problem?

    There are even guards in Silithus (and probably other places) that use the same style glaives, albeit a bit less flashy.

    More like I imagine Blizzard wouldn't go out of their way to work on a HD Warglaives of Azzinoth model just for that purpose, sadly. I think the Murkidan battle pet's glaives are more detailed than the ones we can use ingame, which is funny.

    Ok that doesn't justify it at all. If Warriors can't transmog the Warglaives then DHs shouldn't be allowed to mog Thunderfury.

    Of anything to bitch about this being the one you choose? Pathetic.

    So stolen from a Demon but only a demon hunter can use them lore wise. That doesn't even work. Lore wise most weapons can be used by anyone. There is no specific lore behind Illidan's weapons that require a "demon hunter" over another class. The only reason why it is restricted to demon hunters is because they exist in the game now and it is their iconic weapon. It is only mechanic reasons why class restrictions exist on weapons. Lore wise a warlock could train and fight with a warglaive if they so wanted.

    Anyone who can equip a legendary should be able to transmog it.

    be glad that you can still equip them on other chars for RP purposes, they could change them in legion to make them oficialy warglaives weapon type...
    this way, they DIDNT take away anything from you, and tbh it doesnt really strike me as a surprise since DHs already HAD the option to mog them (although i agree they could communicate it better)

    If this is going to be the case, I demand Thori'dal will be a hunter specific transmo, because while everyone can equip it, it is specifically tied to the hunter class.
    Yeah, same logic applies here. Hunters are the only ones who actually use Bow/guns/crossbows these days, why should that be different?

    Like I said earlier, blizzard and inconsistency. It's like a trademark at this point.

    If you read the thread there are many DHs with same opinion like you. Like I can count 5 without even going back some pages to actually count, probably quite a lot more.

    This looks better than the Azzinoth glaives anyway:

    I agree but getting this worked up over a trasmog is hilarious anyways, cant take it seriously.

    I don't get the argument Blizzard makes here. "We want to respect the effort DH's made to get their transmog so we are making it exclusive to them"

    Players that got them during Burning Crusade put in a fuckton more of effort to get them because back then one did not simply walk into Black Temple. Apparently that effort isn't worth anything?

    As for the people saying "But only DH's can use glaives" these items are and always have been classified as swords. This is just retconning the loot history of the game and that - like any retcon - is dumb as fuck.

    I did read, and I saw maybe one or two compared to the many that went "I'm a DH and I'm happy it's exclusive for x/y reason."

    And yeah, those glaives do look better, but I'm personally sticking with my Legion invasion swords. I like them too much. As a side-note, I'm really sad there wasn't a HD Warglaives of Azzinoth skin for the Demon Hunter artifact, just like Rogues had a HD Thunderfury, Hunters had a HD Rhok'delar and Warriors had a HD Arcanite Reaper.

    If i was a rogue/warrior main who had the glaives since TBC, and then i couldn't xmog em when others can do their shadowmourne/thunderfuty/sunwell bow, yeah i'd be upset.

    On the other hand, if you go run around with the actual glaives equipped on patch day, youre bound to get some funny whispers for a few days.

    i got the BC era glaives long ago on a rogue, to unlock the ability to use them as a tmog on my DH, required having the warglaive achievement and completing timewalking Black temple on any class player. if blizzard is saying they want to respect the hard work a DH did, they have no clue. getting them on a level 70 player took me 17 BT runs for both. DH to tmog them zero runs.
