Warglaive of Azzinoth (High-poly version)

Submitted by Deolrin, FrIkY and
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
"The Twin Blades of Azzinoth are a pair of weapons wielded by Illidan Stormrage. Azzinoth was a doom guard commander whom Illidan slew 10,000 years ago. Illidan took Azzinoth's twin warglaives and trained himself to use them. He has become exceedingly efficient with the weapons."

~WoWWiki


This is the high-poly version with a hi-res texture by FrIkY. This model has 574(!) triangles, so I suggest to use this model ONLY in cinematic fights or RPG's in which the camera is very close to the unit. One thing you should be aware of is NOT to use this model in masses of 20-30, since it is so hi-poly for an attachment. You'd rather have 1-2 of those on the screen at the same time.

The portrait file is the right handed version.

HUGE CREDITS TO FRIKY FOR DOING THE AWESOME TEXTURE!

A lower resolution of the texture can be downloaded here.

Here is an awesome icon modified by FrIkY for this model(click to go to the download page):

[​IMG]

Update - 7th September 2009: Completely redid the model, reducing the polycount from 785 to 574 and making it shade correctly(aka making it brighter). I also added a small glow to the model.

If you use this model, give me AND FrIkY credits. Do NOT redistribute this model in any way. I do not want to see it make it's way to sites like "Warcraft III Unlimited".

    Isn't it just extracted from WoW?

    Do I need to provide WIP's for the texture and perhaps let you have the .MS3D? I was hoping not to get to this level.

    Can't you see the all wrong vertexes\faces? :p

    You can easily see that this isn't an WoW export. Just take a look at this picture below.

    The WoW version is brighter, and has a different pattern. :p

    Nice Warglaive btw. :p

    That's one sexy sword. Very high file size for an attachment, but it's worth it.

    I don't play WoW so I can't say if it's a direct copy and paste even if it was, what would the problem be? The only complain is the high file size for a attachement.

    Tau Empire, I can asure you that this is absolutley no WoW-export or CnP from WoW texture. Debode is a great modeler and he knows how to make models, and I made the texture, which you can clearly see here. Below you can see WoW texture of the Warglaive.

    Useful for cinematics, and that really all about it :/ But you could have added animated texture to this one, that would've been cool
