Hey blizzard... can we have backpacks in wow?

Can we have backpacks as a transmogable cloaks or as a toy item that lets us wear it without a duration of how long it is on?

I don’t know just an idea…

This has been brought up before and I love the idea! Rift has backpacks for all sorts of things.

Having different ones for different professions, etc would be a blast!

I like backpacks, and my vote is yes please.

Some of them could be specifically designed to hold arrows. Just sayin.

A transmog option for accessories would be nice. I’ve always wondered why things like banners and rings (Eternal Black Diamond Ring) aren’t transmogs.

There’s a missed opportunity here to expand cosmetic rewards into a general Accessory category that don’t necessarily map to a particular gear slot.

Edit: I’d like to highlight MoP legendary cloak effect, which I’d appreciate to have as a tmog option.

NO! It is a slippery slope! It starts with backpacks, and ends with Fanny packs!

I’d be happy to finally see my character equipped with five backpacks. I’ve always wondered how that works. Maybe our bags should just show up on our characters by default, and we should be aloud a “hide backpack(s)” option.

Remember how hard it was to make the backpack bigger?

I think that’s a cool idea. Every d&d character I’ve ever played had a backpack

I like this idea too. Why not make it only a “cosmetic” display like Chef’s Hat?
When you use Chef’s Hat, it shows over your head and the buff for cooking speed has no timer, you either right click to remove it or if you die it goes away.

This is a 14 year old plus request, on and off again, since the beta of Vanilla.

Thank you for the nostalgia!

I’d like it if players could also turn the Backpack off (same as if they added a Quiver, again), if that was their choice.

Just as with other stuff, there could be mogs for the backpack. There could be a “ridiculous adventurer” mog, where it would look like all of the things we actually carry around are hanging off the pack and such. Like I could be running around with this pack too large for me, with a mining pick and stuff for herbalism hanging off, plus a roll of toilet paper trailing behind.

WHOAH, must have got "IT! "

I’m fairly certain that was an exaggerated excuse they made because they didn’t want to do it. I’m sure it took like a month max when they actually tried. And they tacked on a condition to it to make you sign up even further for Battle . Net

Early on, they said they tried to make the original backpack bigger but all the gold and stuff inside disappeared. Like it was tied up in the original coding for the game. They were like nope…can’t do this. So they kept giving us bigger bags for the other slots and we were fine with that. And void storage. And the mog closet, toybox, etc. The resource tab for the bank gave us lots more bag space.

They figured how to increase the original backpack pretty recently so they gave us more space for using the authenticator - not battlenet or gametime related.

We haven’t had a critical bag/bank space shortage for awhile now and I’m a major packrat. We’re okay.

Cosmetic backpacks would be okay - maybe like the one you get when you do Redridge quests but it would throw off most mogs so iono.
