Can a priest transmog their 1h mace into, say, a sword, in 5.2? Or do you still need to be able to equip it?
You still must be able to equip it.
You can transmog 1h swords to 1h axes. 1h maces, so on and so forth.
My question is, as rogues use daggers in PvP, will we be able to transmog our items into 1h swords/axes/maces/fist weapons, as we can equip them and otherwise our transmog options for weapon is more limited than any other class.
One-handed: One-handed axe, one-handed sword, one-handed mace
Two-handed: Two-handed axe, two-handed sword, two-handed mace
Sticks: Polearms, Staves
Fists: Fist weapons
Ranged: Crossbow, Bow, Gun
You can only transmog items to other items in the same "category".
TL;DR: No, you can't xmog daggers into anything besides daggers.
Oh well. Re-spec to combat incoming.
Edit' Why should fist weapons at least not use the same animations as daggers? Both are jabbing and stabbing things, not swiping after all...
Fist weapons are punching things, dagger animations with fist weapons would look pretty stupid.
