Blizzard asked blacksmith and artist Tony Swatton from Man at Arms to forge Doomhammer.
Swatton is specialized in creating weapons and armor for theaters, movies and video games. He already created Gorehowl last year.
As Doomhammer already had it’s appearance in the Warcraft Movie earlier this year and will be one of the Artifact Weapons in Legion, it was time to bring it to life. They’ve created a version with a glowing lava effect and this might be one of the possible appearances of Doomhammer in Legion.
