So, yeah. Rather than being either a Cosmetic of 1H/Fist weapon that can be used across multipe classes, as shown in past media and NPCs, the first ever player usable 3-point glaive is Demon Hunter only.

This is silly, disappointing, and makes no sense.
They could have just made it a sword like the NPC glaives are but nooooo.
F for HDA - hopes, dreams and aspirations

Given DHs can use swords just as easily for transmogs? Yes. That or, heaven forbid, a Cosmetic weapon.

Blizz really need to change this. They dont even look GOOD on Demon Hunters for heaven sakes.
And it makes no sense... Of all the weapons that could have been given to us, the most iconic one we all wanted is handed over to a fel ridden half demon who probably doesn't give a !@#$ about Elune... Even lorewise those %^-*ers are nowhere to be seen helping the Kaldorei...

To be honest, the DHs could so easily have had a weapon more iconic for their class, since we still dont have a design closer to the sleek designs of the WC3 weapon as opposed to the overly ornate designs in-game at present.
Blizzard doesnt give a single damn about lore, story or characters.

Only cheap epicness for human knights in shinning armor.
I've never understood why the "Warglaives" weapon type is only allowed to be used by Demon Hunters come Legion. The Warglaives of Azzinoth were able to be used by Warriors and Rogues in TBC, and later Death Knights, Monks, and obviously Demon Hunters.

It makes sense why Blizzard put these glaives as "Warglaives" - seeing as that's the weapon type they are (even if the Warglaives of Azzinoth are classed as Swords) - but it doesn't make sense why only Demon Hunters can use them and why no other classes should. They should probably remove the transmog restrictions.

Because Blizz have forgotten about the Demon Hunters now that they're not relevant anymore. Same way Death Knights were up til Legion.
Well this is pretty devastating, the most iconic weapon for the entire race and it's locked into one class. I can imagine them doing the same thing with the Blood Elf glaive as well if they add that in.
This is how we get an army of "Not a DH IC" RP profiles!
What an outrage.
I'm optimistic about this. This is the sort of thing that could see a change if people rock the boat enough. Remember all the noise people made when they thought the new night elf WoD models wouldn't have fangs? - This has the potential for similar commotion.

Thats the hope, tbh. Calmly but persitently raise the point that this is an iconic weapon and a bad execution and players are not happy.

No need to rage; the model itself looks fab. But it needs to be usable by more classes.

Powerful posting

Warglaives are used by non-DH trolls, blood elves and night elves just to name a few. Keeping the weapon type locked to DHs is so dumb

Hell, Vol'jin's warglaive (crafted by the shado-pan) is used as a semi-major plot item in BfA. It's not like it's old forgotten lore or anything.

Blizz being dumbos.

To even add to this, you have https://www.wowhead.com/item=124369/mindscythe-of-the-legion&bonus=1801 (Fist Weapon in WoD) which has the same model as https://www.wowhead.com/item=128831/aldrachi-warblades (Warglaives in Legion).

sums it up pretty nicely.
We could al make a thread in the bug report forum... Maybe that gets Blizzards attention xD

Sure, if you have US Account to post on, go ahead :)
Demon hunters should've been removed after Legion >:c
This is clearly Horde Bias.
