WoW With Lightsabers

Blizzard, I would be forever indebted if this is something you can pull off.

As we all know, Star Wars: The Old Republic is coming out soon. Many are calling it "WoW with lightsabers."

So, in a friendly and competitive spirit - why not give everyone just that - WoW with lightsabers!

Of course you couldn't use the term "lightsaber" but playing off of the tech-minded Gnomes and Goblins, I could see the "Gnomish Death Stick" and "Goblin Energy Fuse" or something.

Heck, you already have the art more or less done with Teebu's Blazing Longsword! http://www.wowhead.com/item=1728/teebus-blazing-longsword

Blue for Alliance, Red for Horde.

Everyone gets one in their mailbox on the day TOR releases.

Make it happen!

Yes, be even more original WoW and start stealing from games that are just being released.

What is this Facebook now?

I found this rather amusing and found myself wanting one...

The idea is a bit of a smack in the face to TOR. Stealing a little thunder, if you will. I mean the 4.3 patch will already do that. This would just be some icing on the cake :)

Everyone is missing the point.

The point really isn't the item, but rather the timing of rolling these out, complete with Blizzard's awesome tongue-in-cheek humor! I think BioWare would get a kick out of it. And cry a little.

Too many lightsabers in game already. Plus I'd rather play the proper game for swinging lightsabers.

I've already pre-ordered it and I'm eagerly waiting for its release.

Downside with SWToR.. no gnomes or other little people races to play. QQ

We're not 'missing the point', we just think its not a good idea.

Lol.

As much as I like the idea. I doubt Blizzard is going to offer a weapon that celebrates the release of another company's game.

My spouse spent days farming Slave Pens for the Spellfire Longsword. Rest assured, we are going to see lots of Jedi Knights and Sith Lords after the transmogrification feature is released.

How you do find the item number to link the object?

Its the last set of numbers in the html line for the page address if you're using armory or wowhead.

Paladins are pretty much already jedi, if I actually had a lightsaber, I'd be a lawsuit just waiting to happen.

If Kushiban were playable, I would have been on the waiting for SWToR ship.

But no.

That's it, i'm cancelling my preorder.

This slap in the face can not stand!

I was kind of hoping for gungen, so I could get the same kind of respect in tor as I get in wow. No such luck, though. Or playable yoda race (it's never been named anywhere, I don't think). I doubt lucas would allow yoda's race to even be named in swtor, though. Bioware probably wouldn't be allowed to even if they wanted to; a shame.
