Notes and trivia

  • Warglaives can only be equipped by demon hunters.[1]
  • Warglaives can be transmogrified into one-handed swords and axes.
    • They can technically also be transmogrified into maces, however since demon hunters cannot equip maces, and are the only class that can use warglaives, this is not currently possible.
  • Glaive is also the name of a type of polearm, unlike Warglaives, the glaive polearm is a real weapon in Earth's history.
