I would just like to say before I get started…there are a ridiculous amount of great looking Fist Weapons in World of Warcraft. I won’t lie, I had no idea until I began to compile a miniscule list of just five. So this is easily another category where mileage may very.
5. The Silithid Claw seems like someone just took a pike and while it was molten hot, stuck a handle on it. It strikes me as a very unique looking fist weapon, and the “heated” appearance of the head only enhances it’s appeal. It’s non-expansion item on our list this week. The claw drops from Battleguard Sartura in Temple of Ahn’Qiraj.
4. Fist of the Deity is not nearly as visually appealing as the rest of the list, and while it’s all about “look” in Transmogging, I think the perception of how one fights with an item is a contributing factor in its appeal. That’s where this item gets praise, as it’s just about the only one of its kind in the game, and you know someone means business if it’s in their hand. To get it in your hand, go visit Moorabi in Gun’Drak (Heroic Mode).
3. Calamity’s Grasp is the kind of weapon I pretty well expect an Engineer to be wielding. But at the same time, it’s such an interesting type of weapon that many others could apply it and it would still look good. It’s not as menacing looking as some of the others in the slot, but elegance can have its place as well. It’s one of the harder items to get to as it drops from Kel’Thuzad in 25-man Naxx. I do fully plan to take my Engineer there and farm the bugger for it anyway.
2. Crimson Steel is probably my favourite fist weapon. It’s probably baffling to see me keep listing personal favourites outside of number one but simply because it’s my favourite doesn’t mean I consider it the best for Transmogging. It’s pretty close and I think it has a great look to it (and will look amazing on Monks). 10-man Obsidium Sanctum is usually not too hard to round up a group for, and you likely shouldn’t have too many folks fighting you for a great looking weapon when you kill Sartharion.
1. Claw and Fist of Molten Fury. Doesn’t matter if you get one, or both. Ok, yes, it’s wielding both that makes this the top fist weapon because chained flaming claws scream you mean business. Yes, they’re very “Cataclysm-y” and that’s something I’ve tried to steer away from (in that I don’t want every list to be new gear), but you’ll be happy to know both are from the original Mount Hyjal. You know, the Caverns of Time one? Problem is, they’re both a random drop. But, get them both and you’ll be a mighty fine badass.
