Outfit of the Month, or "Fists of the Phoenix"
What: Talon of the Phoenix (13% droprate) / Claw of the Phoenix (11% droprate)
Dropped From: Al'ar in Tempest Keep: The Eye
These are mainhand and offhand fist weapons and are super-duper-amazing-looking. The claws move and it's just a terrific effect. I hope to farm these with husband's best friend some day, even though I can't wear them.
Honestly, I don't see any point in not allowing all classes to train all types of weapons. If the stats are lousy for you, they're lousy for you, but you should be allowed to wear things to look pretty!
I've been feeling a similar frustration with armor. Roleplay cloth wearers are limited in their selections, and I'm hoping that the new "armor specialization" coming out in Cataclysm will eventually usher in the ability for cloth wearers to expand their wardrobes. It's a longshot -- much longer a shot than fist weapons on a priest -- but I still maintain the vague hope.
