It’s time for Hunter Weapon Transmograpalooza!

4.3 is here today, and with the new patch comes the ability to TRANSMOGRIFY. Being someone who has hoarded weapons and gear since I was level 40-something, I’ve been forming a list of the best stuff out there for years and I thought I would post my top 10 picks.

I tried to keep my lists limited to items that can be farmed since quest reward items tend to be a little harder to obtain [due to the possibility that someone might have already completed the quest and therefore no longer have access to it]. Plus, raid drops tend to be much nicer looking than quest items anyway.

Top 10 ranged weapons

  1. Melmorta’s Twilight Longbow (pictured above)
  2. Avalanche / Golemheart Longbow / Siren’s Cry
  3. Ironfeather Longbow
  4. Golden Bow of Quel’Thalas
  5. Rifle of the Platinum Guard / Veranus’ Bane
  6. Heartstriker
  7. Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix
  8. Wolfslayer Sniper Rifle
  9. The Boomstick
  10. Arrowsong

Legacy items

These are some of the best weapons EVER made in the game. Unfortunately, they are no longer obtainable, so they’re very much a “you had to be there” type item.
Frankly, if you were around when these quests/items were available and you don’t use them for transmog, you’re doing it wrong.

Honorable mentions

Top 10 melee weapons

  1. Dreambinder / Rapture
  2. Crystalheart Pulse-Staff
  3. Staff of Immaculate Recovery
  4. Black Ice (pictured above)
  5. Glaive of the Pit
  6. Apostle of Argus
  7. Terestian’s Stranglestaff
  8. Hellreaver
  9. Zhardoom, Greatstaff of the Devourer
  10. Bloodfall

  1. You have some nice weapons here that I haven’t paid that much attention to before! I was gonna go for Golden Bow of Quel’Thalas, but the one you have in the top looks very “draenei”… Perhaps I should try to make a super-draenei-transmog-set, for example with Apostle of Argus.

    Thanks for a new viewpoint. :) Happy patch day!

    • Just saw your character on armory, the Vengeful Gladiator’s Longbow looks amazing!!!

  2. Great listing!

    But, you need at least two more on the list, my two favorites:

    1 – Dragonbreath Hand Cannon, from Ebonroc in Blackwing Lair
    Unique looking gun – firing shorts from a dragon mouth with a Saouron-esqe eye on the top

    2. “The Blackrock Slicer” aka “The Nicker”, from a rare spawn in Lower Blackrock Spire
    Humoristic and cruel design for a polearm – a giant razorblade on a stick!

    • I began collecting gear when I picked up this axe off trash in Stratholme: http://www.wowhead.com/item=15272.
      I wish so, so much that it was a polearm… or that hunters used 2H axes at level cap. :(
