Glad that this has made headlines on Wowhead too. I personally think the new Warglaive look is a needless move and it has to return to its original, iconic and well known look.And by the way, even the old look does not look like the "original" since WoD times, it's reversed and handles are outwards, so that should also be fixed.
Pls make em look like the originals, they look horrible like this, im proud of wearing the original set on my rogue, but feels really bad using em with my dh with ppl telling me that i look like a fidget spinner.
why would Demonhunters want the Legion logo on their back. doesn't make sense :(i really hate new Warglaive look. looks awful.this is a huge bummer!
New looks better as I dont have big blades slicing into my shoulders. :)
Beyond pissed. Black Temple Timewalking, there is NO LFR. You have to beg for a seat with a group that refuses to give loot to PUGs. WWWWWWWWTTTTTFFFFFF Blizzard you hate us? Why?
I like the old pose more. It's more iconic, looks more interesting, is more like our current glaive setup. All I want is for the shields to be pointing out from the back.As for what's more realistic or practical? Let's get serious here: THEY'RE HUGE WARGLAIVES. One of the most impractical weapon types fantasy has to offer, and you're now gonna make a huge fuss about which type of sheathing is more practical? It's always been fashion over function.
The old warglaive look is iconic and has been that for 10 years. The new look is so ugly. I was SO disappointed with this uncalled-for change. I don't care if it's more practical or logical to use like that, I care for the looks and it's a video game, not real world... Why would they go and change something that iconic after 10 years? No I have the transmog I looked so much forward to and don't want to use it. Not like this. :(edit And on a sidenote, practicality?... Imagine trying to walk through narrow doorways with them blades turned so much outwards....
Love the new look, makes it much more unique.
I'm still irritated that I can't transmog my Holy Priest's artifact into the 1h mace of Illidan. That thing was my go-to for so long. It's my favorite on the priest because of the nostalgia I have with it. :(
I think most likely that the issue is directly ugly. I want the original look of the warglaives instead of these changes. Might be a mistake that it happened. But I want this fixed.Some people even happen to suggest that both versions should be available. So it is for each individual to Choose Which I find OK for some. As Ive played wow for 12 years or so. I was fighting for the right for Old models and animations to survive.But please. Now that I can have the Warglaive transmog let me have it as it looked back then. Otherwise it was a waste putting it into the game.Thank you.SonnicDH.
The old way is how they're suppose to look. Illidan has always had the glaives that way (so that's what people was expecting when farming them), and he got them like that in HotS as well. Why would Blizzard make his glaives that way in HotS as well if that wasn't intended? Calling this look "intented" is just bs. They've always been in the shape of an "X" , not an "Y". They (someone at Blizzard) was going to rotate the glaives to make the shields be visible on the back, which they did.. but they also flipped them the wrong way making them upside down instead or rotating the axis correct. What they should've done to make it look correct was just to turn the whole thing around half a circle, but instead they turned them around and flipped them upside down. And now calling it "fixing an unintended look" lul.. funny when it looks even more unintended than the look it had before. The only problem with the original glaives was the shields that were pointing forward instead of backwards (making the clipping a bit weird for some characters), the actual positioning and look otherwise was spot on. But now when the shields are correct (pointing backwards), the whole positioning of the glaives themselves are upside down and weird and there's nothing about the currect look that seems "intented" at all..
100% agree with Lxorro ^To Blizzard - Revert the glaives back to the Old, Iconic look. We didn't ask for this and we don't want it. Just give the old look back. Don't give that "that's how glaives are supposed to be" BS to us. All the new Artifact skins for glaives sheath exactly like the Old, iconic glaive look. Admit your mistake and revert the change.
So they are still being idiots and @#$%^&*s (talking about DH only warglaives tmog of course)
lol at people going ''muh realism''. Like if you were to be realistic you would never use glaives as weapon in the first place as you would have better chances of killing yourself first.Give us the old one except make the shield face outward instead of towards the character.
@Conque3rer So true, but apparently it's too hard for their ego to admit a mistake. Funny that they say it's an "intended fix for an unintended look" when every single warglaive added in this game and legion expansion like you said, sheath like the originals did. The only ones who doesn't sheath like that are these "updated" ones. Btw, if these "updated" ones are the intended look, all the current ones they added in legion are wrong and unintended then? Because they sheath like the old ones lol.. Blizz pls.. sigh..
I think the original sheathing is too iconic to pass up especially as a piece of timewalking and transmog that so many people have been waiting for, perhaps an optional sheathe could be added for them. Also in my opinion, the "circular" above head shape that glaives have look very menacing and unique.
