Hunter Bows going on back?

Hunter
Since in MOP hunter will only be able to use bows/guns/cbows, meaning that they wont have a staff/polearm on their back, or daggers on their side, so they would look weak and armless. Putting ranged weapons on our back would make sense, no?
They are going on our backs.
At this stage in the beta, Pandaren already have their ranged weapons appear on their backs. It will come in future builds for all other races.
Oh, thats epic! Can anyone provide me with a screenshot or two?
The files for bows being displayed on the back have more or less been in-game since Black Temple was introduced, though Blizzard has remarked on a number of occasions that the circumstances in which they occur are "display glitches." I have a few screenshots somewhere on my old machine from TBC with my bow on my back.
I'm still hoping for a quiver/ ammo pouch to appear on our backs 100% of the time. So you can see the quiver on your back when you have your bow on your back "sheathed" and when it's in use.
Would be sweet.


I support this

That's the only one I noticed right off the bat. If you want more I could hop on the beta and take some.
It only works for xbows right now on the beta and also you have to equip it then draw it for it to appear on your back. The weapon is smaller in scale also.
Does anyone know if they are fixing worgen cloak graphics? Weapons always clip in them.

That's not a problem exclusive to Worgen, however it is amplified by their posture. I also doubt it will be fixed as your weapons sit statically on your back while your cape adjusts to your character's position and movement. It would require reworking the sheathing animations for every race-weapon type combo.

Yes, here's the thread at MMO champ. with the compiled beta info. The first pic shows a panderen hunter with a cross bow on its back.

I don't like how they are displayed. They should be at an angle instead of straight up and down. It looks like you're severing the spine of your mount when you are mounted.
