Transmogrification is just around the corner, and everyone's starting to gather their transmog sets! Now, there's a ton of awesome old raid gear just begging to be transmogged. Black Temple, Ahn'Qiraj, Ulduar, you name it, these places are all stuffed with cool, unique looking weapons for us Death Knights to use.
But what if you don't want to go farm them in a raid? Maybe you're not comfortable grouping with people, or maybe you just want to be able to farm some cool stuff up on your own pace. Well, you're in luck! There are plenty of nice-looking, often-overlooked weapons that you can get without ever stepping into a raid.
Over a few posts, I'll be listing a bunch of interesting One-Handed Axes/Maces/Swords, Two-Handed Axes/Maces/Swords, and Polearms that are all available outside of raids. Usually they will be obtainable without any other players, but there might be a few exceptions. They might be quest rewards, they might be Bind-on-Equip items, who knows! I won't list any Firelands Bind-on-Equip items (since they are super expensive), but I'll list Tier 11 BoEs.
I chose those weapon types because this list is primarily aimed towards Death Knights, but of course, other classes who can use these weapons might also find the posts interesting!
I will be focusing mainly on weapons that can be used in either hand, for dual-wielding purposes, but if you want to dual-wield with mismatched weapons, I'll include a few Main Hand-only weapons at the end.
Oh, and I won't be listing the various PVP weapons you can purchase with honor. There's too many, and they're almost all great! And even better, many of the older weapons only cost a few hundred honor, which is super cheap. I urge you to go to your PVP vendors and check their selection out for yourself - Lieutenant Jackspring for Alliance, and Stone Guard Zarg for Horde.
Without further ado - the weapon lists! (Links will be added to this index as I finish the posts.)
