    New gear types in the Next XPac

    Simple question...

    Should Blizzard introduce new gear styles with the next XPac?
    If so...what?

    Personally I'd like see:

    New Weapon: Pistol

    New armor: Trenchcoat/Jacket - possibly as an alternative to capes and to allow the use of surcoats instead of kilts..

    New facial slot: Eyewear

    While I'd love new gear, there's too many niche gear already with ranged being hunter-only.

    If I say it's Azshara next enough times, eventually I'll be right. So here we go again. It's got to be Azshara next, so get ready for the Sylvanas expansion we inevitably get instead!

    Yes to eyewear. No to everything else, really.

    Yes to trenchcoats using the cloak slot (and being mutually transmoggable) and a cosmetic eyewear slot.
    No to more weapon types without diversification of classes using those already in the game.

    Cosmetic slots maybe, functional weapon types adding bloat to a slot, No.

    Obviously. If it were, I could just play as a cat-eared loli, instead of having to RP as one in Goldshire on Moon Guard.

    In all seriousness though, I'd like to see a mask slot in addition to the head slot.

    That can be done with a cosmetic slot, or possibly some relaxation on the "silly" transmog rules and having an item similar to the noblegarden rabbit ears.

    they should bring back librams, relics, totem slot and have archaeology play a role in crafting items for those slots.

    all classes should be able to use them as well.

    More weapon types maybe, but even they'd inflate boss loot tables.
    Another armour item slot would just add far too many items to the game.

    Right. The darkest expansion WoW has ever had is Disney. Idiot.

    OT: None of these sound that interesting or necessary to me.

    Instead of new gear types I'd like to see them make more armor that actually looks like armor instead of how it is now where it looks like tights. They already have several of these like the leg armor where the sides of the legs stick out and have actual armor plates on them, like you can actually see it. I just get so annoyed when I have those awesome boots and leg armor on and then I get an upgrade that looks like a piece from vanilla WoW where it looks like I'm wearing tights.

    We have shirts and tabard slots as purely cosmetic slots. They sure could change the shirt one for a useful cosmetic one, or add another, because I haven't seen my shirt for years.
