Plug for tomorrow's Daily Quest!With Transmog on the horizon, I stumbled across this blog detailing the relative visual uniqueness of the weapons in WoW. So far, they've done shields, 1H and 2H swords, 1H maces, and staves. http://www.deazeroth.blogspot.com/I personally look forward to more and think this would be a great link for those people looking for a "just so" weapon to match their new gear in 4.3.

Disenchanting Azeroth is certainly an interesting analysis of WoW's weapon models, but (having run across it a few days ago) I feel its focus is on novelty rather than quality. A thing may be highly different from all its peers, but that does not necessarily make it beautiful.If your goal is to have a striking and unique silhouette, sure, Disenchanting Azeroth is great for you. If your goal is to have an aesthetically pleasing set which goes well together and fits the look or theme you want for your character, it's not the best of resources.The clown suits of Outland were certainly eye-catching, but they weren't necessarily *good*!

The thing I find so helpful about it is that it shows you ALL of the models of a certain weapon type in the game. Reskins and recolors aren't shown, of course, but you can see every silhouette available to you at a glance. I take their "top ten" and cluster graphs with a grain of salt.

EDIT: And yes, that DOES help you find a weapon to go with your gear. I was seeing a lot of weapon models I'd just plain forgotten about that I would like to use on this character or that one.
