Yeah there are a ton of cool swords in the game, and I have a ton of them in my bank and void storage. Sadly it seen so far this exp that there are no real swords for rogues...just daggers and fist weapons. With the new transmog roll out with 5.2 you will be able to change whole families to other weapons, except fists stay fists and daggers stay daggers. Other classes can change 2h swords/maces/axes and 1h swords/maces/axes amonst each other...why no love for the rogue?
Poor rouges seem like the new shaman...
And that is going to suck for you guys. I knew about the axe/mace/sword restrictions lifting, but that doesn't leave you guys with a lot that can be done to transmog. They're not lifting the legendary restriction, either, so not even those daggers are an option.
I think they at least should let you do swords on daggers. The animation would be close enough (or would still look alright). Otherwise, ya'll are stuck with going combat if you want any interesting transmog.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.
