Tons of beautiful new pieces of weapons in 8.1. There is a link to the Wowhead page here but here are a few pieces that stand out.

My nelf hunter has been running around constantly under the effect of the Heartsbane Grimoire. She's really looking forward to this!

Voice Overs for a Zandalari Paladin has been datamined. Unknown still whether or not they will become a class option for Zandalari.

Apparently making a Night Elf is going to be on my agenda - I'm really loving the subtle dark blue undertones of their eyes :0

Wouldn't it be marvelous to see some subdued hair colors, like black, to go with this?

Really going to have to wait and see what this entails, how it'll look when the glow is in.

I dig it based on concept alone, though. As someone said: it kind of looks like channeling the dark side of the moon. That is, to say, Sylvanas pissed Elune off so much that she switched into a dark phase and that their living avatars now have alien-esque murder-eyes.

I think they should be. I really do. Like kul tirans can be druids! It's only fair imo.

Currently the collar is properly showing on the male variant, and Wowhead believes that the coat sleeves should have bulky cuffs like this set:

in all fairness they seem to favor making kul tiran males bulky with giant meaty paws for hands :)

So basically Kul Tirans are Alliance orcs?

A bit of palindromic wisdom:

Casual player.. don't raid, don't PvP. Suffer from extreme altitis
I love pets - combat or non.

But Zandalari can also be druids. Can Kul'tirans be paladins? If so, then yes, let the trolls be paladins. I guess it's no weirder than a Tauren paladin

In terms of physique, yes. Their culture is rather different.

@Teigan. We don't know what Kul Tirans can or cannot be. Warriors, Rogues, Mages, Druids, Priest, and Hunters are good guesses. There is a chance for Shamans (Tidesages). Paladins are a maybe, since there isn't a huge presence of Light worship in Kul Tiras. Monks could also happen if Pandaren train them. I don't think that Warlocks will be an option, seeing as there is absolutely no usage of the Fel on Kul Tiras. DHs obviously won't happen. And if Blizz sticks to their stance on Allied Races and DKs, then they also won't be able to be that class.

Well I DID mean appearance-wise, not lore-wise.

I forgot that they can be druids. But I mean normal trolls can so it fits (then again Highmountains can't be pallys >.>)

but it's more fun to think that the person who developed the lore with Daelin is going "Damn you new artists making my people look like orcs!' :)

You see? now I can't help but hear "Zug zug" with a cockney accent.

I don't think Kuls can be pallies, I think the Zan pallies are more to balance out the fact that the Alliance has 3 shaman races and Horde only has 2 pally races. :mrgreen:
