essentially they are allowing one to transmog 2h weapon types interchangably...i.e. you can transmog a 2h mace to a 2h sword or 2handed axe....I think this implies you will be able to do this with 1h as well though it does not say that.

The video doesn't clarify if you can make a "main hand" weapon look like a "1 hand" weapon, or the inverse.

What about T-mogging a 1h to a 2h, and vice versa? Seems doubtful, but that's what I really want.

its called titan's grip/single minded fury

I really want the "main hand" limitations lifted. I have a few cool looking caster weapons on my pally that I would love to use on my tank set, and/or other 2handers i would like to use to tmogg my sha-touched weapon.

No that's not the way I understand it. I believe it is only two handed weapons that have the same animation. So staves and polearms but not staves and axes.

Edit: May be wrong on the staff vs polearm comment. Could have swore I read somewhere they would be able to be transmogged but the MMO Champion comments say otherwise.

This was MMO Champions comments from Sunday:

Patch 5.2 Transmogrification Changes
As part of the the transmogrification changes being implemented in Patch 5.2, almost every Main Hand weapon was converted to a One Hand weapon. You can see the list of the remaining Main Hand weapons here.

As far as the other previously mentioned changes go, almost every type has been implemented so far. Most two handed weapons that share animations can now be transmogrified with each other, as well as most one handed weapons with other one handed weapons. Keep in mind that this is the first build of Patch 5.2, and more changes could come in later builds.

Daggers cannot be transmogrified into swords or vice versa.
Polearms cannot be transmogrified into other two handed weapons.
Fist Weapons cannot be transmogrified into other one handed weapons.

you can buy items that allow you to use the graphic at Area 52 - if you attained a certain rank. I don't recall what it was off the top of my head. I want to say Knight-Lieutenant, but I could be wrong.

AHA! From last night's notes:

Patch 5.2 PTR Official Notes Update

Interesting Notes
The new legendary item is a meta gem, not head enchant.
Heroic Pandaria dungeons now award 100 Justice points per boss and gold drops scale based on number of players.
Mists of Pandaria Season 2 Malevolent Gladiators PvP gear can now be purchased with Honor Points instead of Conquest Points, including weapons, but newly purchased Season 2 Malevolent Gladiators armor, offhands, and shields will have an item level of 476 (was 483). Existing Malevolent items are unaffected.
Balance, Feral, Windwalker, Retribution, Shadow, Enhancement and Elemental now gain 25% of the bonus healing provided by PvP Power (was 0%).
Players in low level battlegrounds will have their effective level raised to the maximum level allowed in that battleground bracket.
Rated Battlegrounds now award conquest to the losing team based on their final score. The losing team can earn up to 200 Conquest Points from a very close match.
Staves and polearms can be transmogrified to each other.
Patch 5.0 Valor gear costs 50% less, and Patch 5.1 Valor Gear now costs 25% less.

Not going crazy afterall!

This is pretty big, so you can cap valor on 3-4 heroics now they need to raise the cap so people is able to catch up.

Huh? how are you going to cap valor in 3-4 heroics if they're boosting JP gain?

I do like the drop in price, though. it's going to let people catch up faster. No waiting 2 weeks for enough VP for one item. The increased JP will allow you to buy those JP items faster to boost your ilvl as well, so in one week, you could possibly be able to hit 90 and do LFR, just not right when you hit 90. Much better than waiting a couple weeks after you hit 90 to be able to head into LFR.

I think jobbie was referring to JP and not Valor. I know I'm storing Valor points and Justice for the impending patch. With the amount of heroics I've ran, I can easily jp cap since I only use JP for item upgrades at the moment. I'll be just upgrading my weapon and then going to cap out justice. With the valor changes means that Tier gear is going to be available via Valor. I'm also going to try the lfr to see if they implemented the drop rate change on the ptr.

It was my bad I read valor instead of justice, still not sure how I feel about it due of the limited use of JP at this point.

ATM, it's really good for nothing. 358 ilvl gear just isn't great. I'll cap it like I said to see if the current tier gear is adjusted down. I think that once we see this change, a lot of guilds will start clearing raids on a more consistent basis.

Did I miss something? Where did it say you could buy tier gear with valor?

That's if they stick to how they did it in Cata, That will be the case. But Blizz has been doing major changes every patch so far. We'll see what happens.

No, they've moved away from that - they did starting with DS. If you want tier bonuses, you'll have to do LFR at the very least. You're not going to be seeing tier gear for valor any time soon, if at all.

Um....that's because DS was the last raid. You could buy Firelands tier set piece with Valor. Why would they add the last tier set to valor during that current raid and last raid tier of the expansion lol.

No, it's because they had LFR to give people relatively easy access to tier pieces in DS.

And guess what? They still do. So you're probably not going to see tier for valor unless LFR disappears, which is highly unlikely.

um you could buy some pieces but Shoulders and helm were and still are, as far as I know, bound to tokens. Ston is right, they stated back at the end of Cata that they were moving away form tier pieces being bought with Valor.
