Petition: Bring Back the Quiver!

Hunter
So I have an offhand slot...it's empty...I'm not saying make the quiver a bag like old school WoW days but a stat stick item that fills in my offhand slot...otherwise what purpose does that slow have?

A quiver would be badass in that slot with just some extra stats...a cool diagonal animation across the back to compliment my bow would also look awesome...would make me feel like the old days when i felt like a hunter.

Just saying...

Long live the Quiver!
Why we lost item level balancing by losing our melee weapon...I went from 372 (old item level) to 365 because I don't have a melee item anymore.

Which is silly just means anyone using multiple slots gets into heroics faster/easier due to how the game is designed.

Resolution to problem while remaining Loreable.
I counter your suggestion with a suggestion for dual wielding pistols!

Ranged weapons are already one handed anyways!

Dwarfs would rock socks if this was possible.
I value your suggestion as a valid alternative option...

We can both have our ways!
I would be happy just having the quiver graphic. not sure why they took it out anyway D:
I'd kind of like the quiver back... still kinda neutral to the matter, however I am completely against dual wielding pistols. It's just my opinion, but I feel that dual pistols takes away from the hunter class as a whole, making us into gunslingers which I don't feel suit any spec.

No they're not, you need both hands to operate them.


A few ranged weapons I've seen have had "One-handed" in their tooltips. Doesn't change anything, but that was the joke.
Stats or not, that's a mechanics request, and that's likely not going to happen any time soon (as Eponine said very truly, they just got rid of stat sticks!) as that requires balancing and significant developer thought.

As for the graphic.. oh I would love to have it back and it wouldn't require much effort as they already have the graphics and the model sticking location (not sure what the proper term is, and for the old races anyhow).

Could be done as simply as automagically pairing a quiver look to a bow/crossbow and ammo pouch to a gun.

EDIT: oh, and /signed!!

I loved quivers, looking over old screenshots, it's missing terribly from our look now, with the removal of weapons on our backs, we look.. incomplete

This, we need the graphic back. Even if its just a generic model that is colour matched to the weapon.

Mind you though, If I can get a red quiver with a horde symbol in it that would be beyond awesome.
keep the graphic, but please don't go back to needing ammo and a dedicated bag slot. Please.
please Please PLEASE give us back our quiver graphic!
I would dig having the quiver graphic back when my Hunter is carrying a bow. It would be different with a gun.

I have no problem with the idea of a Hunter wielding dual pistols. I wouldn't do it myself. But I don't see any reason why another Hunter couldn't choose that option. I think it would be something of a nice novelty to have a gunslinger sub-class.

On another side, my warrior misses her bow terribly. Dead useful for pulling a single mob.
Yes, please bring back my quivers! Nothing looks better on a hunter than a quiver on their back. Even if it's just cosmetic. The art is already there. Bring back quivers!!!!
Bring them back
