The latest Artcraft post takes a break from showing off the new race models and gives us a sneak peak at hunter quivers and ammo pouches. They’ve been dubbed “class accessories” and it sounds like they are going to be placed in a new cosmetic-only gear slot. Paladins will have librams, Shaman will have totems, etc.
These quivers and ammo pouches likely won’t make it for the release of Warlords of Draenor, but hopefully they’ll arrive in a subsequent WoD patch. They suggested that these could be rewarded for anything from leveling up to defeating a raid boss.
I know it’s a tall order, but I think it would be awesome to have one themed per-expansion or per-tier. Think about a dragonscale quiver for the vanilla sets (it could even drop in there), a frost-themed quiver with icicles hanging off it for Wrath sets, and so on. My other hope is that these quivers will also modify the visuals of your basic shots so we could have flaming arrows, frost arrows, poison arrows, etc.
As a transmog junkie, I’m pretty excited.

So hyped cant wait!!!!!
Hopefully bliz releases basic versions of the quivers and ammo bags that match our chest during the launch ad the cosmetic ones from challenge modes or Brawler Guild with a different model type,
“Before we show you the goods, keep in mind these are still way early in the design process, and getting them into the game will likely need to wait until after you’ve faced off against the Iron Horde. But this is something that’s been requested so frequently, we thought you might appreciate knowing we’re working to make it happen (eventually).”
Looks to me like we have to wait for the expansion after WoD…at the earliest. Let’s hope this doesn’t go the way of the dance studio.
I assumed that meant it wouldn’t be there for launch… seems odd to preview something THAT early. Maybe 6.1 or 6.2 or something. Hopefully.
Lol another abandoned project by Blizzard
I was really hoping that this would make it into the game 🙁
Someone brought this post up on the forums:
They already released it. Legion was the “class fantasy” expac and they used extremely watered down versions of this idea. MM has the quiver and hpallys have the libram on their belt and Blizzard obviously felt that was good enough. This is Blizzard’s new MO, think up ideas people love then deliver shitty version of them.
