Sheath on Back Weapons
This guide is to help players find weapons that sheath on the back for either transmogrification or role play. The reason I created this guide is because as a warrior tank the look of the weapon sheathed underneath the shield is more ascetically pleasing to me. There is also a fair amount of ways these kinds of weapons can be integrated into a role play character. As a player of Dungeons and Dragons for quite a few years I see the desire of role players to want these weapons.
It seems that Monks sheath all 1H weapons on their backs try not to be confused by that.
If there are any weapons that I am missing please leave a comment below and I will update it as quickly as possible.
