Why do all back items have to be capes?

General Discussion
A pair if wings, even if just cosmetic, would be a nice change of pace.

Wings could work as well, but I'd fear we'd start moving into Aion territory there.

I know. I get the joke Blizzard put in. But if you just want your "cloak" to disappear, just do it from the options, no need to farm that item for transmog.
You know, this makes me wonder why there aren't more pieces like that, or at least pieces where that could be useful. Emperor's new slippers, Emperor's new tunic, et cetera. I mean, granted, they would kind of have to do a piece for every set out there, but I'm sure there are probably a few people out there who would like to show off their orc male six packs.
Yeah, I've seen people wearing the "mana packs" and such. So it can be done.

Would be nice to have more back options.
Am I odd for missing the old half cape model that they had in vanilla/BC and changed to this whatever-it-is-half-cape during Cata model?

i think it be cool if hunters had a thing on there back that had arrows in it to go along with therre bow


We did until people cried about not having as much bag space. Blizz did away with the quiver and the back art.
Of course they have to be cloaks. Otherwise you'd catch your death of cold.

Aren't those still in the game? I could have sworn I've seen them show up in Mogit.

+1. You need more likes.

Were they really quivers? I thought i recall an animation that pulled the arrows out.

Would you prefer fins?

Yes, if only because they're not capes. We should have some more variety.
Bump it cause you like it!

Create new looks for Back pieces... Cloaks are boring; that is why we hide them or farm for The Emperor's New Cape.

Why not have back pieces resembling the I-Scream Cryocannon that can be made by engineers, animal pelts (like Durotan's) for skinners, containers with sloshing fluid for alchemists and etcetera.

Just a thought...
GRUMMLE-ESQUE BACKPACK OR BUST
I like the keg idea... a keg on your back and a party bomb ready to pop ... BAM!!! NOW ITSA PARTY!!!!!

:D
Durotan's back piece is awesome as well.

Classes are getting cosmetics in WoD so you will hopefully have quivers back :)
