Wild for Weapons: Top 5 Best Weapons for Transmogrification

Updated Mon, Jan 23, 2012 by Mem

Sure, armor in World of Warcraft is nice, but it’s the weapons that really set the look off. With Transmogrification in full swing, now players can change their WoW weapons to look like almost anything they desire leaving the possibilities almost endless. One of the best expansions for weapons was the Burning Crusade. Released during what most consider the “golden age” of WoW, this expansion had a flare for otherworldly, borderline gaudy weapons, that we the player can’t seem to get enough of.

Proof of this lies in a survey done by another WoW site which found that sixty-two percent of transmogrification choices come from this particular expansion pack. So with this poll in mind as I compiled my own top 5 personal favorite Transmogrification weapons, it came as no surprise that a few of them managed to originate from this particular WoW expansion pack. To see what I’m talking about, and hopefully garner a few ideas for Transmogrification weapons of your own, continue reading on for:

Mem’s Top 5 WoW Transmogrification Weapons

Staff of Immaculate Recovery

The Staff of Immaculate Recovery, or Priest on a stick as many WoW players call it, is one of the best looking healer oriented staffs in game. Seriously, take a look at the staff, Blizzard pretty much slapped a T5 clad priest on top of a stick and called it a day. Nevertheless it works! Even though this particular piece was released in the days of Burning Crusade, there is few staves that can rival this in the look department making it the perfect piece for your Transmogrification needs.

To obtain a Priest on a stick of your very own you should first convince your Priest friends to done T5. After this is done proceed to chase them around with a pointy stick until you impale one of them. No? Well there is an easier, but far less entertaining, route. The Staff of Immaculate Recovery is a drop from Gurtogg Bloodboil inside the Black Temple. Gather yourself and a few friends and you can easily farm this instance every week until this staff is yours to hold, love, and Transmogrify to your heart’s content.

Witch Hunter’s Harvester

There are more than a few nice looking pole arms in WoW, and depending on your personal taste this may or may not be one of your favorite, but there is something about the Witch Hunter’s Harvester that screams “bad-ass” to me. Perhaps it’s the coloring that so speaks to me, or maybe its just the fact that this particular polearm is a giant scythe, exactly like the one I imagine death would carry that does it for me. Carrying this polearm around is sure to turn a few heads and produce a few whispers on where you picked up such an epic looking weapon.

Want to use this polearm as part of your Transmogrification weapon pieces? The Witch Hunter’s Harvester can be crafted by any friendly Blacksmith for some old world materials including 8 Truegold, 6 Heavy Savage Leather, 4 Hardened Elementium Bars, and 5 Chaos Orbs. Not into the gathering gig? Check your local Auction House where you have a good chance of finding these items, for a price, but well worth it.

whaa no STORMHERALD?!! the most feared weapon of all of TBC?!


act normal no Quel'delar?

i will hack all your acounts

where is ashbringer? :D

where is ashbringer? :D

mace and axe looks like crap i can think of WAY better axes to transmog

Think I agree with all of them except gorehowl :S
That might be my seething hatred for Garrosh speaking though >_>

Really? Gorehowl? I think Netherbane deserved to be the axe mentioned. . . . So few people have it and I believe it to be the most badass looking OH Axe out there.

How can you put a giant ice-cream cone in the top 5 best transmog weapons of all time? Gorehowl was understandable, it's very cool, but what of the Untamed Blade, or Firelands Sulfuras? Instead, you give us a recolour of a generic scythe, and the ice-cream of Ulduar.

Poor Effort. Completely unjustified. 2/10

Where is Hellreaver?

Where the fuck is the Talon of Al'ar ?

Ahhh the old days, i used to have Staff of Immaculate Recovery..

Where's the Drakefist Hammer in the Transmog set? The simple fact that the head of the hammer is a Dragon's head should warrant it as a must need transmog piece.

Talon of Al'ar is a trinket you stupid random wow player... very hard to Transmog that shit. :D

Remember you guys, this is simply someone else's opinion. Quit stomping in here and getting butthurt when someone doesn't mention your favorite weapon.

LOL..I make the Witch Hunters Harvester and have people all the time asking for one..I tell them get the mats and the works is free..they are lazy and are willing to fork over 5k for it without a blink. In one week between the drakehide leather kits and 3 of those, I got 7 toons master flying..

STORMHERALD!! the most feared weapon of TBC son

Any priest from Vanilla should use Benediction/Anathema =) just saying.....

Twin Blades of Azzinoth just saying....

can't transmog Legendaries

3 of the 5 were very blue... Unfortunately (for me) all of my transmog gear is either purple or green, so although most of these are quite nice they do not cause a tingling in my pants

I like how Nightbane didn't make it up there, granted it needs around 12 dark iron bars (2-3 runs through MC on a miner) is a unique and rare look that I haven't seen repeated.

WTF, what about Nightfall? It goes nicely with a red set.

4 of these sucked. the only one that was actually a decent Xmog item was the Staff on page 1.

Your taste sucks man.

I think Falric's Wrist Chopper and Tyrannical Berserker make nice axes.

Where the unstoppable force!!

This Mem hasn't seen much of Azeroth...

Where is the Sexhaving Banghalberd?

I have hellreaver, the polearm from the dragon guy in ramps it looks amazing with my archeus knights set!
