Non-Raid Transmog Weapons: One-Hand Maces

Maces are an odd duck. There's many interesting ones, but so, so many boring ones. But anyway, here we go! There are many One-Hand healer maces that would normally never really be used in melee, so they might make interesting options for transmogging. However, these tend to be Main-Hand weapons, which means you cannot dual-wield them. Sad!

Non-Raid One-Hand Maces

Silvermoon War-Mace
Required Level: 62
Source: Bind-on-Equip

Simple but nice. Just check the AH, they're only green quality so it shouldn't be too long before one shows up.
Spider Splatter Mace
Required Level: 37
Source: Quest

Frying pans! Not sure if this will be allowed once Transmog is live, but it's a pretty interesting weapon choice.
Crimson Cranium Crusher
Required Level: 75
Source: Quest

Reward from the Amphitheater of Anguish in Zul'drak. If you're lucky, you skipped it and can now go get this sweet hammer! Otherwise, hope you can nab the next item on the list off the AH.

Main Hand version available.

Unknown Archaeologist's Hammer
Required Level: 72
Source: Bind-on-Equip

My personal favorite, I'll be rocking these if I end up using maces in 4.3! Keep checking the AH, they're rare but show up every now and then.

Main Hand version available.

Cookie's Tenderizer
Required Level: 15
Source: Deadmines

Another classic. Unlike many of the other "joke" weapons, this one's been around forever...AND it's blue-quality. So I'm guessing it will be eligible for transmog. Has a 20% drop rate.
Dragonjaw Mauler
Required Level: 77
Source: Bind-on-Equip

These hefty maces seem to be pretty common on the AH, and for reasonable prices. If you're looking for a mean-looking weapon, it's certainly a decent choice.

Main Hand version available.

Stormstrike Mace
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Violet Hold

If you don't want to pay for the Dragonjaw Mauler, you could farm this from Heroic Violet Hold...but given the random nature of the bosses, this might be a real pain. If you get lucky and get Erekem, he has a 33% chance of dropping this weapon.

Main Hand version available.

Warsong Punisher
Required Level: 78
Source: Vendor (Horde)

Horde players can purchase this item if they are Revered with the Horde Expedition. The base price is 61g, 46s, 80c. Main Hand version available.
Hurley's Tankard
Required Level: 51
Source: Blackrock Depths

Easily farmed, 29% drop rate. A fun choice, especially for dwarves.
Mug O' Hurt
Required Level: 41
Source: Bind-on-Equip

Very similar to Hurley's Tankard, but available on the AH.
Bloodskull Destroyer
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Escape from Durnholde

I quite enjoy the long handles on these cool looking hammers. Looks like something right out of Firelands. 15% drop rate.
Stinging Viper
Required Level: 16
Source: Wailing Caverns

Easily farmed, and a high drop rate (48%). Main Hand version available.
Venomspitter
Required Level: 55
Source: Blackrock Spire

Easily farmed, if a bit annoying. 20% drop rate. Main Hand version available.
Chopped Off Ancient Limb
Required Level: 9
Source: Quest (Horde)

I love this mace. It's so comical, and huge! I think it'll look quite funny to dual-wield these. Main Hand version available.
Excavator's Brand
Required Level: 35
Source: Bind-on-Equip

This weapon is a lit torch that constantly burns and smolders. Very cool. It's a random trash drop in Uldaman, so you could farm for it if you really wanted to.
Shovel of Mercy
Required Level: 19
Source: Quest (Horde)

A hilarious weapon choice, though I suspect it will be ineligible for transmog.
Mariel's Sorrow
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Trial of the Champion

13% drop rate. A Horde-only red/blue version is available, Grimhorn Crusher, which is available from the Argent Tournament vendors for 25 Champion's Seals. Both are pictured.
Aledar's Battlestar
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Trial of the Champion

17% drop rate. An Alliance-only yellow/green version is available, Ironforge Smasher, which is available from the Argent Tournament vendors for 25 Champion's Seals. Both are pictured.
Tremendous Tankard O' Terror
Required Level: 85
Source: Bind-on-Equip

Of course, I have to mention the Tankard. Extremely common on the AH, though fairly expensive if you're only getting it for transmog purposes. Still a very cool weapon model.
The Shatterer
Required Level: 47
Source: Blacksmithing

This gold and blue hammer is simple but attractive. Shares a model with Masterwork Stormhammer, also created via Blacksmithing. Some Main Hand variants include Gavel of Pure Light (requires Exalted with Sha'tar, base price 200g 36s 50c), and Dathrohan's Ceremonial Hammer (Heroic Escape from Durnholde, 15% drop rate).
Truncheon of Five Hells
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Hellfire Ramparts

This rare orange-colored mace has a unique model, and would perfectly match the colors of a Paladin's Judgement transmog set. Has a 16% drop rate.


Non-Raid Main Hand Maces

There are so, so many caster Main Hand maces. Way too many, so I skipped them.
Melia's Magnificent Scepter
Required Level: 75
Source: Bind-on-Equip

Pretty rare but very cool weapon. Check the AH.
Hammer of Wrenching Change
Required Level: 77
Source: Quest (Horde, Alliance)

Yet another giant hammer model, if you didn't do much questing in Icecrown then you can simply pop out and pick this up quite easily.
Hammer of Quiet Mourning
Required Level: 74
Source: Quest

Quest reward for killing Ragemane in Zul'Drak.
Blackfathom Mace
Required Level: 20
Source: Quest (Alliance)


Giant Club
Required Level: 32
Source: Bind-on-Equip


Talon Branch
Required Level: 47
Source: Quest (Alliance)


Cudgel of Consecration
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Magister's Terrace

This ornate, crystal-flanged mace looks fancy yet functional. 25% drop rate. It shares a model with Northshire Battlemace, which drops from Escape from Durnholde at a 18% drop rate.
Bleeding Hollow Warhammer
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Slave Pens

Black and red, solid and spiked. Would go well with a Blood Knight color motif. 15% drop rate.

    At the end of wrath my rogue was running around with two boards with nails in them as his maces. I don't remember the model name, but they were just lvl 68 or so greens.

    I should grab one off the ah for old times sake!

    I love the "Chopped Off Ancient Limb" look. It is something similar to what I have in the bank on my warrior.

    When I was leveling him I came across this green that just looked like a giant stick. It was fantastic, hanging on the ground following my little dwarf. I actually think it is bigger then my dwarf.

    It is one of the few things I actually want to mog. Speak softly and carry a big stick. That is my dwarf warriors motto.

    I am so glad I saved it from way back when. It was just too awesome to ever sell.

    You offer me a few other fun options here I am going to have to get to have some fun when tanking.

    Ver ver nice list. I did not realize were boe variations on the Hammer of Quiet Mourning and Crimson Cranium Crusher. I shall make a note.

    Other easy fer ta obtain maces be the Grimhorn Crusher / Ironforge Smasher, assumings what you's already done Argent Tourney attunements. Oh, wowhead sez what the Warsong Punisher be a one-hander, not main-hander.

    @GrumpyElf - The Chopped Off Ancient Limb is one of my favorite maces in the game. I'm going to use it on my Priest as well.

    @Ratshag - The Grimhorn Crusher is a good one, yeah! And good catch on the Warsong Punisher, thanks! I have fixed that now. :D

    Rades you're confusing my tired mind. That first pic is not maces.. I swear those are swords!

    I love the shovel and the spider spatter, though I use them mostly for playing around with my silly world of dresscraft.

    But in my mind, a DK beating ppl with Cookie's tenderiser (original non heroic) would be just superb.

    I thought they said you wouldn't be able to tmog mugs? Also you can tmog 1H to MH, right? I can't remember which way you're allowed to do it.

    @Navimie - Admittedly, I was looking for any sort of picture using non-raid weapons, and my WoW Model Viewer was locked into the pose I was using for the weapons, so I couldn't take a new one! I'll swap it up soon though, haha. ;)

    @Mittenz - I'm not sure if the mugs will be transmog-able. But in general, I think "real" weapons should end up being eligible options - they're legitimate weapons, not silly ones or vanity ones, but legit weapons used while leveling. So I think/hope they'll be allowed.

    And as far as I know, we will be able to transform use a 1h weapon's look on either hand, but a MH weapon's look only on MH? I think?

    I tested this today on the PTR and the Tremendous Tankard O' Terror can be used for Transmogrification. It is only visible while the weapon is unsheathed tho, so you won't see it hanging from your waist.

    Anvilmar Hammer, uncommon random BoE drop, level 69 to equip. This weapon looks like a board with a nail in the end, is transmogable. My dwarf shaman is currently using these for her transmog duel wield. Looks great!
