Weapon sheaths and Hood for hunter

Unread post by pop » Fri Nov 08, 2013 8:23 pm

The Draenei Hunter/Archer from the trailer has a sheath on his back... and if he is a hunter..I would wish the hood would be available for hunters to transmog it..

I thought it was kind of badass that the hunter in the trailer got into melee combat with the orc. Yes please. I'd love to have a melee hunter. The Rangers from GW2 got me hooked on it.

Uhm... it's just a trailer :P an almost cinematic-like one when it comes to the particular scenes. Wasn't there a wolfrider looking like in a mounted combat as well? And didn't Blizz say it won't happen - for players at least, NPCs don't seem to have a problem with that.
Same goes for the cosmetics. Sylvanas got a quiver of arrows on her back last time I've seen her, I think, correct me if I'm wrong.

I know they mentioned they were still considering quivers, so hopefully that's still the case. It's entirely possible we'll see them next xpac!

And yes, I agree that the hood look feels so much more like a hunter to me than a hard helm. But then I always felt that hunters looked more natural in a leather/cloth look rather than mail. More like a ranger. Clanking around in mail just seems silly to me. Shaman feel even sillier in mail to me, as it makes them further removed from the real-world concept of a shaman.

Kinda all was thought they should just get read of mail armor type. Convert 1-39 in to plate and 40+ in to leather. Then make it so Hunters and Shamans use leather as main armor and the plate class all start with plate at level one.
