Cannot transmog into any warlock artifact appearance

Transmogrification
I'm currently using a wand+off-hand combination, that I got from questing before I reached level 120, it seems like I cannot transmog those into any warlock artifact appearance using any of the specs, like it is supposed to. The drop-down menu option for "Legion Artifacts" is not showing at all in the transmog npc.
Same thing is happening to me. The drop-down menu isn't there. I can only mog to let say other wands or staffs.
You just can't transmog wands into artifacts. It's been like this since beta.

Why though? This just pushes me away from using wands. There is literally no point to this being the case.

I guess this is because of the wand shooting animation. It would look weird with other types of weapons. Nobody uses it nowadays but wands still give you Shoot ability.

I see, it's too bad. I'm sure they could have figured something to work around it, I guess they chose to go the lazy way.
really sucks to not be able to xmog wands into artifacts guess casters only specs where restrictions were not fully lifted
I ran into this on one of my casters too.
This is actually intended design though, you can not make a ranged weapon look like a melee weapon or vice versa.

Some Artifact appearances are so awesome that they can bypass restrictions on some weapon types. However, even though some restrictions have been lifted, other weapon restrictions remain. It is not intended that a melee weapon can be made to look like an Artifact bow or gun. Likewise, you can't make a bow/gun/wand look like an Artifact melee weapon.

While this does mean you can't make your new wand look like a Legion Artifact, there are a number of new wands in Battle for Azeroth that I think look amazing and can't wait to increase my collection.
Might also be a good reason to go back and run some old instances to grab wands I didn't have before and farm up some offhands to match :)
Wish they would let you transmog wands into artifacts and just let your weapon act in every way like the wand except being melee. The only gameplay effect would be a minor downgrade for the player (not being able to wand totems etc.) so there shouldn't really be any concerns since it would be 100% optional.

That is just ridiculous, you're not transforming a 'ranged weapon' into a 'melee weapon'. You're a caster mogging your caster weapon into a caster appearance.

Couldn't agree more, it's plain stupid. Nothing more to add other than: Bad Design Decision Blizz gg.
We do not want wands. We want our artifact stuff, i really ask myself when blizz will understand. Let us mogg whatever we want for god sake.. what's the big deal?
While they're at it, they should remove the cross-spec Legion artifact restrictions.

I can't mog my Marksman bow on my Beast Mastery hunter.

I can't mog my Frost Mage staff appearances to my stave equipped on my Fire spec mage.

Daft.
I can't believe they keep ignoring us. Tickets, bug reports, forums,reddit.. so many voices. But nothing happens.

Pretty much disgusted by this now
*Bump* Can you please fix this issue blizzard ? no one cares bout wands ''shooting'' ability. This is BFA. not vanilla. No one shoots there wand. Let us mog to our artifact appearances where we btw WORKED for to get. Why would be left without while others do have it ? this makes 0 sense. fix your system please. Wand transmogs suck.

I still don 't understand how they could bring this live. It's poor and lazy work. They should have know many ppl will be upset. It just makes absolutely no since. All it shows is pure laziness.
FINALLY DO SOMETHING BLIZZARD!!
weirdly enough they allow holy paladins that currently use 1h+shield to xmog into the silver hand (a 2h mace)
so smort

Beceasue it's still a melee weapon. Casters can mog dagger/sword/mace + offhand into 2h staves also.

Difference is you aren't throwing your weapon at the target you're hitting. You still hit them in melee range.

Yes and this is the actual problem. Its an outdatet ability noone needs. Ever. It is useless, it is only a broken issue that annoys ppl who want to transmog. Tbh many ppl sent a BUG report because they couldn't believe it is intended. (I hope we talking about wands,bows here ^^)
