    I mean they did so many other storage upgrades and management changes. It sucks but we'll live. Perhaps we'll see it changed in Beta at some point. This isn't the be all end all final list.

    I'd love for a larger backpack but I much prefer better management options first.

    It's not really needed at this current time. With the amount of stuff they took out of our bags (again) it saves up a lot more space.

    They've stated many times that the Original Backpack is hard coded in the old system and would require a ton of work to change it. They did announce QoL improvements to your other bags. Like sorting and no more quest items in bags, etc.

    They are adding a toys tab, removing quest items from your bags and all stacks are now 100/200. I think they did good.

    Possible tabard tab/possible new transmog like the new diablo feature.

    Which means your void storage is almost empty and your bank is almost empty.

    There wasnt a confirmation of tabards which makes me sad. They said possibly in the future.

    As long as they hurry up with letting us keep coding for transmog gear and able to throw out the old gear itself, that'll fix so many issues.

    I really wish they added the gw2 feature where you can automatically send all your crafting items from your bags straight into your bank anytime anywhere. I think I read they added you can craft straight from your bank in the new expac so this would be an amazing feature to have. That would free up so much space while out in the world, I never needed big bags in gw2.

    This. You were never meant to change the backpack out.

    In fact, I believe they said that changing it had the risk of deleting items.

    I remember them saying it was actually ridiculously difficult to do given how the game was originally coded.

    As long as bags aren't full I see no issue

    Void Storage?

    apparently it's hardcoded into the game and can't really be changed

    Such as your money and ability to carry... anything.
    I find it utterly laughable that people are having ZERO issues with android monks, cyborg dwarves, and shadow-warping gunplay assassins, but they throw absolute FITS if you suggest a timejumping tomboy might be gay or that a walking artillery-platform might self-identify as female.
    Apparently, the superintelligent jetpack gorilla from the Moon makes perfect sense, but chrono-displaced lesbians and transgender automatons is just ridiculous!

    ...do explain this because I dare not hope for what I read into it...D:. If I understood it correctly, it's too good to be true!!!

    That feeling when there's a new expansion out and you sit in a Garrison wondering what the hell to do because you are stuck on an entire continent like Timeless Isle, only with flightpaths to encourage afk travel coz "immersion".

    Please. They will free up a lot of bag space anyway so I don't understand what the problem. Do you really have to whine about ev-er-yt-hi-ng?

    I'm curious though as to what will be marked as "toys" though. I'm afraid my definition of "toys" will be a lot more wider than Blizzards :P
    Also: did they say they would increase the Void Storage? I know they said they had thoughts about changing the transmog. situation like they have it in Diablo, but did they say anything that will change for sure early on in the expansion? :/
    You know when people want you to tell them the truth? They lie.

    I'm 100% sure it's not that simple, they'd have just done it otherwise

    Yup they said it might not be done for launch so they removed it from their presentation, but it's in the works.

    Similar to mounts/toys/pets

    At least they are giving us a tab for toys and heirlooms. Heirlooms are on an alt anyway, but I'm happy with the toy tab. Hope they'll see as much things as toys as I do, else it won't help much in the end. Or they just need to add bigger bags that don't cost so much.

    The major thing about the heirlooms, for me atleast, is that they now can be used on all realms!
