Mog my Mug - Items which change your appearance - Weapons


Sick of your appearance?  Longing for a change, but only temporarily?  This post is part of the series Mog My Mug - Items which change your Appearance.  Commissioned by Ayelena.

Welcome to my mini series "Mog my Mug" where I'll be looking at items in game that can change your appearance.  Ayelena was interested in certain effects which alter the colour of your appearance, but I expanded it to include items which polymorph you as well.  I'm not including things like Halloween wands or the mage spell Polymorph.   

WEAPONS

The problem with weapons that can modify your appearance, is that not everybody can wield them.  Here are some of the ones we have in the guild at the moment.

Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's rest (staves)
The legendary caster staff of Firelands.  Turns you into a Tarecgosa, a female of the blue dragonflight.  Want to get one?  You'd better get on that legendary chain then and do lots of Firelands raids.


Fandral's Flamescythe (staves)
Drops from Majordomo Staghelm, the second last boss in Firelands.  According to Wowhead, it has a 14% drop rate.  You can click to activate it when wielding it, or it activates itself when you start hitting things.



Arcanite Ripper (2h Axe)
This is no longer available in game - It turns you into Bergrisst from The Tauren Cheiftains, complete with guitar AND plays music!  The weapon even looks like a guitar :)  It dropped from Tenris Mirkblood in Karazhan in the Scourge invastion pre-WotLK event.


(Side note - Prince Tenris Mirkblood and the quest to kill him Chamber of Secrets are all a nod to the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling.  Half-blood Prince and Chamber of Secrets are 2 of the books and Mirkblood is a play on mudblood which is a wizard who is not a pureblood wizard)

This book offhand on use turns you into a wolf, depending on what it says on the book description.  You can either be black, red, white or grey.  Want one?  Ask your friendly neighbourhood inscripter to make it for you (Technique: Rituals of the New Moon).


Thekal's Grasp and Arlokk's Grasp (fist weapons)
Thanks to Roshii for spotting this one I missed!  These weapons are no longer in game, they were drops from the original ZG from Arlokk and Thekal.  They have a random chance to turn you into a tiger.

If you think of any I've missed, don't hesitate to comment on this post!  Stay tuned for the next post in the series - Trinkets.

  3. Hmm, depending on your definition of transformation there's also the warlock helm that gives you wings, and the new legendary daggers that should do the same.
