    A good 2H could be Hammer of the Naaru?

    I’m still looking for a good one for a Polearm.

    very good copy, there acteuly is sword very simillar to guard’s one on Model Viewer: Monster – Sword – Crystal Scimitar

    • Noelani says:

      We’ve noticed that weapon when searching through WMV, but the only thing sharing that model in-game is Blade of Misfortune, which is sadly not a purple blade.

      However, 4.3 added Season 3 equipment back into the game, which provides a perfect matching model to the swords worn by the guards in Dalaran. The colour isn’t quite right, so it’s still a compromise, but at least now you have a choice between matching the model or matching the colour. We added it into the article a couple of days ago.
