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:
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.
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.
