    My main point was that the shape of it is quite boring, which makes the head stand out more. And the reason the tail looks odd is not that it doesn't make sense, but it lacks movement. I think even the head will look less goofy when you see the entire "backpack" (still don't know what it's called, but you know what I refer to) attached to a back and it moves a long with it.

    But when the design make it so the only interesting thing is one part and rest is boring it makes it look out of place. Which is the issue. Not saying it's a huge problem, but I think some small fixes will make it look great
    I mean, I guess you could throw more stuff (antlers, etc.) on the side, but too much more and it's going to just look overcrowded and completely lose the practical/simplistic look of a frame carrying pelts, and also miss the point of the profession, which is about skinning leather/hides/pelts not 'hunting'.

    Yeah, that might be the better option.

    at least have the edges of the stacked skins be somewhat frayed (they don't have to be bloodied, I'd assume a professional would clean the skins?) but certainly show a full pelt if you are adding the head.

    Well each race for their own if you are a midget race like gnome or goblin then the head is small compared to example a male tauren equipping the same item.

    You don't have to add antlers or big objects... maybe adding a hanging rope, making it look more like a makeshift thing. Pelts or what not hanging out a little bit more. Maybe add a tool.

    Sorting out textures to make it look less pristine (boring in this context) as @Nymrohd mentioned.

    As an example, you know stack of books in games and what not? It's rarely they are used and placed as perfect stacks, and same goes for bookshelves. Even if we in RL tend to want things neat, it looks dull in art. So you make the books in different heights, you make them shift a bit in the stack so it sticks out a little bit, makes the silhouette a bit more interesting. Having a book leaning on another book instead of staying straight etc etc. It makes it more interesting to look at.

    So i'm not saying you need to make it busy, but it certainly needs something so it doesn't look boring.

    To continue the bookshelves analogy. The bear head is like if you have a place with good organization and everything is being neat (because you want to convey the person owning it is of a certain character or the place is X, you name it), then you have one part that is a mess. Which is often used to draw the persons eye, often for puzzles sake, to that place. But if there's no reason for it to look out of place, then it just look out of place.
    The bear is kinda like that, so adding a bit of a mess to rest of it, would make it look tied together.


    I might just overanalyze things.. but eh, it's fun.

    I really think it will clip horribly with most hairstyles

    I also carry a giant tooth on my dentist's backpack.

    This looks silly, period

    If dentists were hunters and tooths were trophies, this would make sense.

    I don't find the backpack offensive in the least, it just looks bad on humans imo.

    I would have preferred each race getting its own style of backpack, that pack would look pretty good on a tauren or orc.

    Do you know what's skinning and what skinning knives are used for? Have you seen a real life hunter's lodge/cabin/club?

    If you were a dentist for dragons and dragon teeth sold quite well, would you pull them and just leave them on the ground? Or would you take the extracted teeth with you?

    And other teeth would fear your name for years to come.

    Here we have a neatly organized backpack with pelts and essentials for the wild. Then you just plop a bear head on top of it all.
    A portion of a bear pelt hanging from the side/the back would have made more sense tbh.

    If my memory serves me right this was post-Cata.

    Edit: Backpack needs more animal parts. Maybe a bunch of deer legs hanging off the side? Or a bundle of rabbits feet?

    I really hope it's not just a visual thing...
    From what I gather, It will be gear but it wont go on your regular equip slots. It will have separate profession equip slots. Not sure if it is one set of slots for all professions (that you swap between) or slots for each of the professions (2 primary + all the secondaries) with gear for each. The visuals are only supposed to appear when performing actions related to that profession. Otherwise it would be your regular gear visuals that appear.

    It might be realistic but that's not the point.
    Looking at a probably recently cut off bear head just makes me feel uncomfortable.
    I wouldn't choose to wear or xmog this as I would have to look at it for longer amounts of time.

    So your fine with eating their organs, making weapons from their claws, and wearing their skin as armor but having their head sitting on a backpack is too far?

    What do you think that is folded up underneath the head?

    Well now - if they put the whole bear on it would be too heavy wouldn't it? I really don't see any alternative to decapitation.
    Meanwhile, back on Azeroth, the overwhelming majority of the orcs languished in internment camps. One Orc had a dream. A dream to reunite the disparate souls trapped under the lock and key of the Alliance. So he raided the internment camps, freeing those orcs that he could, and reached out to a downtrodden tribe of trolls to aid him in rebuilding a Horde where orcs could live free of the humans who defeated them so long ago. That orc's name was... Rend.
