Default What do you think the artifacts will be for each class/spec?

It seems like every character that can duel wield will get two copies of a weapon and tank classes will get a matching shield. I wonder if caster classes will get a matching off-hand frill? Fire mages are getting a sword, so they should get something for the other hand.

I for one hope rogues get Fangs of the Father, mages get Atiesh and warriors can get val'anyr.

Also wouldn't mind if one of the other shaman specs got Sulfuras, even though it'd be weird for them to use it while casting.

I don't think they'll use legendaries that can still be obtained.

Edit:
Wowpedia is tweeting more weapons.

Wonder where they're getting these. Is there another panel going on or something?


This feels like a mage one to me, with the crystals, though the second version has a more shadowy feel with the vapor.

Looking at the images on WoWpedia they seem to come from the Legion press kit.

Ah, didn't think of that.

I have to admit the three they've tweeted don't impress me like the ones they showed earlier or the ones on the site.

Use this for reference.

I wouldn't be surprised if Gorehowl and Val'anyr were two of them.

That's mage; it's shown in the trailer being using by a mage.

Yeah, neither of those viarants interest me. Neither does the frost mage staff. I like staves a lot better than 1H/OH combos, but I like my staves a little less....top heavy. I'm a gnome, I don't want the head of the staff to be bigger than my character.

I kinda hope that monk artifacts aren't just pandaren-based.

I'd KILL for a Daibo-style staff. Diablo style, bigass stick with metal clubs on each side.

Shit, this is all I need to reroll my Monk again.

I'm interested to see what they do for Priest, since they'll probably want to differentiate Discipline and Holy dramatically.

On the one hand, having something that recalls Benediction and Anathema would be kinda neat, but I'd be concerned about pulling those out and not having something unique for Disc.

On the other hand, giving distinct weapon types to each spec would be neat. Disc gets a one-hand mace with an off-hand frill, Holy gets a staff, and Shadow gets a dagger with an off-hand frill. Helps to drive home spec fantasy.

The biggest concern I have with priest is that every race essentially has a different approach to priesthood, since they all claim their power comes from different places. That says to me that the artifacts will need to be somewhat agnostic or have customizations that let them get keyed to particular cultures. Having an artifact dagger for Shadow allows for Troll shadow priests to get some of that witch doctor feel, for example.

Priest artifacts are going to be HELL hard. I see a simple staff on the way, with race-specific customizations. Of course there are 3 specs so I have no idea what they have in store, but I'd think race-related customizations would be a nice approach for priests.

We do have similar stuff confirmed on Ashbringer anyway, we just need a more neutral model for priests.

I'm curious if they're thinking about putting Anathema/Benediction.

The bottom line is that it'll be three distinct weapons for the three specs. I could see Holy getting Benediction and Shadow getting Anathema (if Blizzard felt like being really cheap about it) but Disc would have to get something different.

Because Ashbringer is the Retribution Paladin artifact, not an all-Paladins artifact.

Definitely priest . The crystals are Draenei/naaru.

Affliction Warlocks should get a dagger that is made from a chunk of Old God flesh.

Demonology should get a staff made from various demons flesh.

Destruction should get an Eredar spell sword and that amulet Kil'jaeden wore as an offhand fetish.

I really hope those that get one-handers also get off-hands. Matching weapons and shields is the best! Sadly though I suspect most of this will get cut. At the very least Blizzard will change it to one artifact per class.
