    waste not, want not?

    I mean, the skull can be used, the teeth can be used, and the skin there as well, can be used. I think it looks fine. A little extreme but you are a skinner, so, dragging a knife along a dead creature to skin it, is extreme already.
    FOMO: "Fear Of Missing Out", also commonly known as people with a mental issue of managing time and activities, many expecting others to fit into their schedule so they don't miss out on things to come. If FOMO becomes a problem for you, do seek help, it can be a very unhealthy lifestyle..

    Imo i think it looks cool, it could work with this piece of gear

    I'm fairly certain it's to pay homage to the meme of "if you skin a bear, it should aggro all bears within x radius"

    You should try skinning an animal, after killing it. Keeping the head would be the least of the things that would offend you.

    All y'all acting smug about skinning sound so childish. The backpack looks really stupid. Not offensive. Stupid. Much less stupid than a bear skin helm. It just looks dumb. So plenty of us skinners won't use it. Tada.

    Actually, yes, hunters do in fact carry the head and its skin/fur on/in their pack. Educate yourself before making baseless comments, just makes you look ignorant.

    like idk why it is a thing, but this is already a thing in wow, cause it is super common IRL too.

The visuals are only supposed to appear when performing actions related to that profession. Otherwise it would be your regular gear visuals that appear.
    there is profession slots, and when you do a profession thing they will appear, and will stay until you enter combat. they also give bonus stats, not just cosmetic.

    I see that others have already replied to you with photos. Why is it always that people with little knowledge end up calling others smug, instead of just opening up to knowing more things?

    Someone will probably start a campaign on the general forums to get this changed, and Blizzard will cave in as usual.

    Disagree with the OP. This backpack looks great.
    Goes perfect with my hunter who loves to kill and skin animals, I wish we also could make trophies of our kills...this backpack will suffice for now.

    Adult or young bear, that's a morbid thing.

    Those pictures are not what the backpack in WoW is. The backpack in WoW has a permanent dead bear head attached to it with the eyes removed.

    The photos shown are of hunters who just killed those animals. Big difference.

    Unless you think all skinners went out and beheaded a bear right before hopping into a raid. Get real, smuglord.

    As a bearheadphobic this item is triggering to me.

    Blizzard, pander to my mental illnesses immediately, or I will take this to social media and make a mess!

    never thought a freaking profession BACKPACK would spark this big of a discussion.

    Its a backpack.... you only wear it while skinning and i think you can even mog it away. Last i read they have not finalized how the profession getup works.

    That is whining on a whole other level tbh.

    So, you want Dynamic Backpacks that always show what you have done the last X TimeUnits, or whatever you actually have in your Inventory at any given time? Thats a Technological Complaint, and not a Art Design. Might wanna stick to one thing.

    Which is what the Profession Backpack is supposed to look? This is gear that is related to that Specific Profession, so it SHOULD LOOK like did recently the associated things, or are doing them right now.

    I mean, I'd also think a weapon that had permanent blood all over it would look dumb. A quiver that always has semi full stock of arrows looks dumb in and out of context. Sometimes I even think armor sets that have perpetually bubbling cauldrons or blazing fires on them look stupid too.

    It's just a fucking opinion on the aesthetic, first. And second, the plausibility comes into play when deciding how ridiculous I think it may look. I'm aware I don't need to wear the thing or I can transmog it or something.

    It still looks dumb.
