Is your favorite weapon something with strong memories for you? Is it something that just works well for RP purposes? Or maybe the balance of abilities meshes better than normal to your spec and play style?
There are a number of weapons in the game I really like, most of them for RP reasons and a few for the associated memories. I discussed a few of my favorite weapons several months ago; I recently updated that post to include a new Cataclysm shiny.
When I first saw the prompt, though, I immediately thought of Nibelung.
It was a huge upgrade for Kerisa when she first started raiding and I was struggling and frustrated. Kerisa is the only one of my characters who has gotten or ever will get one, so it’s staying in her bank forever because it procs Val’kyr.
Most of the Scourge are gross and disgusting, but Val’kyr are awesome. It felt pretty cool to get some of the LK’s most devoted servants to help and protect me, against him, instead! I bet that’s where Sylvanas first got the idea to try to get the Val’kyr into her service.
The weapons I like most tend to be relatively simple in design and to have some sort of iconic class or race association. The new level 20 SFK class quest weapons are amazing and I’m looking forward to acquiring them with my various alts — and I will then be keeping them for those characters’ RP sets.
Before I got the SFK Druid staff for Kerisa, her favorite RP set weapon was the Conifer Cone staff. It has a unique look, isn’t often seen, and seemed like a perfect fit for a Druid.
Kiraleia’s Sin’dorei Warblade is a distinctive and elegantly simple weapon. Although it is very strongly associated with the Blood Elves, it’s such a handsome blade that I’d like to get it with Karelia, for her dress armor sets, too.
Kamalia has a handful of weapons in her bank that are no longer available in the game. She acquired the Scepter of Celebras, Mallet of Zul Farrak, and Enchanted Azsharite Dagger over a year ago while doing Loremaster. Only the ZF Mallet is really cool looking, but I keep them all for the memories of exploring the stories of Azeroth-that-was. For her RP sets, she uses the Resurgence Rod and Furbolg Medicine Totem; I didn’t know that these weren’t in the game anymore until I looked them up on WoWhead to link them just now. I also keep around her Guiding Star for its fond memories of Ulduar (this one can still be obtained).
