Non-Raid Transmog Weapons: Polearms

Polearms are so neglected. We use a few of them while leveling up, but at endgame? Virtually unheard of! At least, as legitimate weapons, anyway. A few classes still use them as stat-sticks. Still, even if they're just worn for looks, there's some cool, easy-to-get polearms you could track down for transmogging.

Non-Raid Polearms

Required Level: 60
Source: Hellfire Ramparts

Very distinct polearm that many, many Warriors/Paladins/Death Knights would have used in Outlands. Unique model, has a 19% drop rate.
Banner Slicer
Required Level: 75
Source: Bind on Equip

This polearm is commonly found on the Auction House, and while it looks very similar to other Northrend weapons, it is actually a unique model. I quite like the scroll paper wrapped around its blade.
Blackhand Doomsaw
Required Level: 60
Source: Blackrock Spire

Simple yet badass, this has a 9% drop rate from Rend Blackhand. It shares a model with Lantresor's Warblade, which is a Nagrand quest reward (Horde, Alliance)
Elementium Poleaxe
Required Level: 85
Source: Blacksmithing

This lethal looking scythe is easily obtainable, though for a bit of a price, and only at level 85. It shares a model with the Witch-Hunter's Harvester, which is a green-bladed model, also available through Blacksmithing.
House Wrynn Halberd
Required Level: 12
Source: Quest (Alliance)

This Alliance-only polearm is a reward from the final quest in Westfall. It's fairly rare, since it shares its model with only the Icier Barbed Spear, a Quest reward from the Amphitheatre of Anguish, which most players have likely already vendored.
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Trial of the Champion

This spear-model polearm has a great color scheme and jagged look. It shares its model with a weapon from the Magtheridon's Lair raid, but is otherwise unique. Has a 15% drop rate.
Plasma Rat's Hyper-Scythe
Required Level: 70
Source: The Mechanar (Normal and Heroic)

Besides having an awesome name, this dangerous-looking spear has a 21% drop rate on Normal, 20% drop rate on Heroic. It shares its model with Windcharger's Lance, a Quest reward.
Sonic Spear
Required Level: 70
Source: Shadow Labyrinth (Normal and Heroic)

This amazing looking icy polearm is a unique model. It drops from Murmur at a 14% drop rate on Normal, 15% drop rate on Heroic.
Terokk's Quill
Required Level: 65
Source: Quest

This sinister polearm is very vicious and evil looking. The only other weapon that used this model, the Blood-Tempered Ranseur, is no longer available in the game.
Tidebreaker Trident
Required Level: 70
Source: Vendor

This large trident is purchasable from the Winterfin Murlocs for 50 Winterfin Clams, which are just lying around the beach on Borean Tundra's western shore. Shares a model with Flame Wrath (Blackrock Depths, 24% drop rate) and Trident of the Outcast Tribe (white tines, requires Exalted with Lower City, base price 250g 50s 80c).
Whale-Stick Harpoon
Required Level: 78
Source: Vendors (Various)

This basic harpoon model requires Revered with the Kalu'ak, and has a base price of 82g 45s 45c. Shares a model with Impaling Harpoon, which drops from Normal Deadmines at a 24% drop rate.

    Blood Knights! Do you have that Blood Tempered Ranseur still moldering about in your bank? Here's your chance to wield one again!

    Terokk's Quill would look brilliant transmogged with the elite gladiator S11 set!

    Good round-up :)
