    4 slots is nice extra, compared to 0.

    I just hope they come with some nice 32 slots in BfA at some point.

    Also still hoping for a Reagent "Bank" that's accesible by all your characters on the same realm/faction. (Think Diablo stash but just reagents)

    I don't own a smartphone, don't want to buy a keychain, and don't find four bag spaces to really be much incentive. I'd've gotten it for the pet alone by now if that were enough.

    Seems strange to me that after resisting it for so long, when they finally decide to update the backpack it's for a measly four slots. I would hope they add more in the future.

    But i think you can install the authenticator in your computer?

    I think I've seen a third party program that does so, but not an official product.

    And I might even consider that if it were, say, an additional 16 slots or something. But as I said, four bag spaces isn't much incentive.

    Defo not gonna bother for measly 4 bag slots. Too much of a hassle. And tbh even without authenticator you have to go through validating your account if you suddenly log from far away IP / through VPN, so what's the point?

    This, worth it even if I got negative bag slots from using it. Not that it matters to me whether others use it or not

    What hassle ? O_o

    Having an authenticator is transparent for years now... Long are gone the days of having to enter a code.

    And tbh even without authenticator you have to go through validating your account if you suddenly log from far away IP / through VPN, so what's the point?
    It's because you don't have one that you have to validate every time...

    /sigh

    I was hoping for more like the backpack would be 32 slot or 50 slot backpack.

    Do not mock the image of a god.

    Had my core hound authenticator for aaages, not having one is kinda silly tbh, and I love getting a little carrot for it tbh. More bagspace is great.
    Grawr!

    Sweet. Four free slots.
    Had an authenticator on my account since I bought the physical fob back in the day.

    If you can get 2FA for anything of relevance to you, you should get it. No matter whether or not it extra rewards you for it. I've see many people get account bans cuz their acco was compromised and got used cheats on.

    I've had an authenticator since they came out, so 4 slot for me.

    Hassle of 1) having a smartphone I don't own 2) paying for physical one + shipping costs 3) using a pc app that is not sanctioned by Blizzard, so who knows if Blizzard won't have an issue with it one day.

    What "every time"? Only if you travel to a different country or use a vpn that puts you into different country, which means in practice very rarely. So what's exactly the point of authenticator anyway since both with and without it will ask you to validate only in cases of logging from extremely remote IP to your last one?

    Security is not an incentive for me in this case.
    Same here

    I do have an authenticator for my FFXIV account though and strangely enough that account's been fucked with in the past lol

    I highly doubt your "friend" has one and has been hacked "multiple times". Yes they aren't 100% but they are pretty damn close to it because of how they set up the security for the account. Any unknown IP is required to input the code which generates every few seconds off an almost unbreakable sequence before even being able to log into the account. There have only been a handful of reported cases of this happening so far. Then to have it happen to him "multiple times" is where I call the bullshit. If your friend has been "hacked" its been by someone that knew his info & used his computer to do it.

    On topic, I was hoping for 8 more as well. 4 is pretty lackluster and truthfully doesn't add a whole lot more bag space to your account. 8 would have been nice yet not game breaking.

    Is it 4 backpack slots (so 20 total for the initial bag), or 4 more bag slots (so we could use 4 additional bags), or what?

    Seriously, that is the one option that I can't even begin to understand people going with.

    Free backpack slots is cool. I don't know why you wouldn't have authenticator on your account already.. but I guess WoW is full of autistic people

    You have to be retarded to not have an authenticator on your account already, so the four bag slots are just a trivial cherry on top.
    LOL so fuckin mad
