How it should look when fixed!
The following two links show how the artifact should look when paired correctly.

EVERY INSTANCE OF BUG IN GAME: 1-4 parts
1. Scale of the Earth-Warder with Legionbreaker skin (Equiped item *main hand*)
2. Scale of the Earth-Warder with Legionbreaker skin (Un-equiped *single item*)
3. Scale of the Earth-Warder with Legionbreaker Skin (The Artifact Forge - Appearance Tab)
4. Scale of the Earth-Warder - Legionbreaker Skin (reward cinematic) Warrior Tank Challenge Artifact Cinematic - Quest: The Highlord's Return
NOTE* #4 is currently showing the correct appearance. HOWEVER, upon fixing it depending on if cinematic use the item codes, it may show the wrong appearance after a quick fix.

Legionbreaker Final Appearance: Red Skin #4 bugged
This post has been updated. 8/13/2017

So, if you have not noticed yet... The artifact weapon "skin" is bugged. Looking closely at the "LegionBreaker" protection warrior skin. Particularly the #1(yellow) and #4(red) recolor skins. These do not match.

Throughout the entire beta and the launch of 7.2 live these skins did not match. This is mostly due to all of these skin's having a similar color pallet. You can witness this bug by looking closely at the Bone, Steel, and Straps of each weapon and shield skin.
**They were able to make them match at Blizz Con during the 7.2 patch reveal panel. Massive props to the Blizz Con media team.**

You can replicate this in game by:
1. Activating your Protection spec.
2. Going to the artifact forge in the order hall.
3. Selecting the First(yellow) or Final(red) LegionBreaker skin.
4. Comparing the Bone/Straps/Metal on the shield to the Bone/Straps/Metal on the flail.


IN DEPTH EXPLANATION
Legionbreaker Solo Challenge Skins
Skin 1 Yellow = BUGGED
Skin 2 Blue = working
Skin 3 Green = working
Skin 4 Red = BUGGED

(Yellow) -- Weapon skin #1 = Matches Shield Skin #4 -- (red)
(Blue) ----- Weapon skin #2 = Correct Shield -------------- (blue)
(Green) --- Weapon skin #3 = Correct Shield -------------- (green)
(Red) ------ Weapon skin #4 = Matches Shield Skin #1 -- (yellow)

(yellow) Shield 1 matches Flail 4
(red) Shield 4 matches Flail 1

HOW TO PRODUCE/REPLICATE BUG
If you look closely at the straps, steel, & bone color on the weapon.
Now compared it with the straps, steel, and bone color on the shield.

Legionbreaker Base Model 1 (YELLOW)
Complete the quest line, "The Highlord's Return."
bone: Flail=PALE, Shield=YELLOW (not matching)
steel: Flail=RUSTIC, Shield=GRAY (not matching)
straps: Flail=BLUE, Shield=RED (not matching)

Legionbreaker Base Model 4 (RUSTIC)
Defeat all Legion dungeon bosses using this challenge artifact appearance.
bone: Flail=YELLOW, Shield=PALE (not matching)
steel: Flail=GRAY, Shield=RUSTIC (not matching)
straps: Flail=RED, Shield=BLUE (not matching)

(LOOK CLOSELY!) The artifact color templates are swapped and paired with the incorrect main-hand and off-hand counterparts!

This is a video link on Youtube that forwards to the 52:52 time stamp where it discusses the Warrior artifact weapons and show cases the flail+shield artifact skin.

At current we have artifact weapons that are paired with the wrong main-hand.
This bug can be exploited, allowing players to have multiple artifact color skins from both the #1 Yellow Artifact variant and the #4 Red Artifact variant. Why does this matter? It allow's protection warrior's to get additional rainbow transmogrify effect where no other class can use "mismatching artifact weapons". This is a severe unbalancing allowing warriors to win virtually every rainbow mismatched mayhem transmogrify contest that involves artifacts. This inadvertently prevents players from achieving true role-play value with their transmogrify outside of this contest.

EDIT! the following two links show how the artifact should look when paired correctly. The links are organized by using the Strap color of the artifact skins to categorize them, not the color template in game at the forge.

Why down vote something that can be proven. I provided, facts, links, proof.

If anyone knows the item code for a link on the forums to these items it could really help out showing the skins of the two weapons in question.

Many thanks.

THANK YOU!!! I thought I was the only one who noticed this bs. I reported this to wowhead months ago when they datamined it and I thought it was just an error on their dressing room, but this even made it past PTR and now LIVE!? SMH. I've got about 4 threads going about this and no one has chimed in, bliz needs to fix this asap cause I'm getting that skin the second our mage tower is built. At least when other people start earning it, more might notice this !@#$ and say something. Till then, keep making bug reports and help support my thread in Warrior forums. Blue needs to see this yesterday. I'm still in disbelief this big of a blunder made it past the devs.
ya i hear ya. Still not much coverage on the issue. People are not replying to the thread or up voting it.

JUST FOUND THE LINK! That PROVES! the skins are bugged!

You said its an exploit its not an exploit its just a bug

You said its an exploit its not an exploit its just a bug
You can exploit this bug by having 2 variant artifact skins where normally it's only one varient skin per artifact recolor. THAT IS AN EXPLOIT!

It's also a bug because it's not portraying the correct image over the weapon.

So, it is both.

This information has been added to the main post.
Please fix Blizzard, if it wasn't an obvious enough error we now have proof thanks to Vvar.

I have updated the post to allow for accurate quotes, elaborated on the possibility of an exploit.

Again if anyone knows the forum direct link to the artifact weapon skin that becomes clickable on the forums that would be highly beneficial. aka the Item#code

EDIT! i found how the weapons should look when paired. The sites labeling us using the Strap color of the artifact skins to categorize them not the color template in game at the forge.

Player with item
I was able to find a player with the skin that shows the mismatch of items. Currently accurate as of 4/10/2017 player may change item appearance or transmog please notify and i will change it.

Oops, I didn't notice this post before I made my own.

Really a let down to get the appearance only for it to have a mismatched shield and flail...not very epic at all.

Would this really be a hard fix?

Would be nice to see this at least acknowledged by blizz.

Its not really an exploit when you don't have a choice in the matter to have a miscolored flail with your shield until its fixed. We don't gain anything (as you would from an actual exploit) from it other than having a slightly different colored weapon/shield when we're going about our business in game.

I'm still hoping that this is resolved, though. After a Warrior mentioned this in the Warrior Discord I didn't think anything of it until a few people expressed their own opinions of doubt, only to see that its entirely accurate. I'm not using the skin any less because of this but its still something that I can't help but to notice when playing my warrior as its the only character I play.
still bugged and no word, seems good
Currently updated the main post with an image.
updated title of post to more accurately represent the issue, as well as update the verbiage of the main post.

To lighten the mood...
These Flails are Fails. They are Fail Flails.

Still no response from blizzard on this topic... On a plus note I have attained both of the broken legionbreaker artifact skins that are broken. But I must admit it's really is a shame the flails don't match the shields.

I did tweet the devs the screen shot... I may end up tweeting them this entire post, if nothing comes of it.
"why do people keep making threads? blizzard listens!"
I unsubbed for two months because of this oversight. Can't stand playing a game/class with major bugs that go unacknowledged and unfixed for this long.
I'm a goal oriented player, if that goal doesn't meet the original expectation, I'm not motived to pay or play.
Blizzard recently "updated" the icons on the battle.net launcher to look smaller and older and less detailed. Why are they wasting time taking steps backwards instead of fixing real issues that have existed for months? Get your !@#$ together Blizzard.

Can't stand playing a game/class with major bugs that go unacknowledged and unfixed for this long.

First off, this isn't a major bug. It's a cosmetic one. It bothers you, and I'm not trying to diminish that, but simply calling it a major bug doesn't make it one. A major bug would be that the weapon vanishes when you choose the skin, or that the stats are woefully incorrect. It having the wrong color scheme makes this more of a minor bug.

Secondly, as was pointed out, there is no exploit in this. Items having odd coloration and that, in turn, changing the transmog options, doesn't mean it's an exploit. If the weapon caused strange things to happen in the game, like an absurd damage value, and people were using that to gain ground on a boss, that would be an exploit.

Third, the launcher team is (almost) entirely separate from the WoW team. Saying that changes in the launcher mean that Blizz is either ignoring the inconsistency or being lazy about it is a gross mischaracterization.

I intend to go for this skin myself when my Warrior gets more gear, and I'm hoping the inconsistency is corrected, but don't misrepresent the situation in the meantime. It doesn't help.

You also might think about making a fresh thread about this with all of your updates included in the original post. QA generally doesn't see the posts here in a thread format (which is why bumping is pointless) and edits are apparently handled strangely in their system, so it might be better, this many months in, to make a fresh thread with all your compiled edits into the first post, and maybe even link back to this thread to show that you're restarting the thread to give the QA team a complete picture.
