I recently saw some older posts about retail WoW talking about some weapon size nerf/buffs to races. Seems that Female Blood Elf had their weapon size increased and Female Humans had their weapon size decreased.
It made me wonder, which race had the largest weapons to character size in vanilla WoW? From slightly reading about it, it seems that Human Females or maybe Gnomes had the largest weapons based on their size.
Does anyone remember or have any pictures to show who had the largest weapons?
Do you know what patch it was that the post was talking about?
If I remember correctly it did exist in vanilla - I don’t remember any Gnomes carrying swords taller than themselves...
Then again as we learned from the German interview memories can be deceiving!
I also don't know much about the specific scenario you mention, but I know 4 horsemen in WotLK dropped a ridiculously oversized sword called Armageddon. This thing was intense on tauren and gnomes alike...
From what I read it looks like Blood Elf females and Human females had their weapon model sizes changed in patch 7.2. At least based on what was being discussed in these threads here.
It seems they increased the Blood Elf female weapon size when implementing the updated models.
Also, after reading a bit more it seems as far as Human females goes, the increase in weapon size, while unsheathing, was a bug introduced in WotLK.
So, I am still unsure about race weapon size comparisons in Vanilla WoW.
Not weapon size! But were anyone else around for the orc shoulder pad bug in TBC? It was a good few patches they looked totally ridiculous. x)
omg you found it x)
I think I had just gotten herod shoulders when it happened. I went from awesome to "wait what?" in an instant. :P
Eh I dno, that kind of wonkyness and quirkiness I find quite endearing and I won’t be too bothered by weapon sizes/mounts etc in Classic.
@Edensong, everyone looks boss on a tiger though.
And for the longest time the only thing I wanted for my orc warrior was a black war kodo. It felt amazing the day I finished grinding for that!
It's not the size, is how you use them! /s
Jokes aside never knew of this, that gnome image is so darn cool!
