    Default Could we get backpacks?

    I really like the fact that in some missions/warfronts im carrying something on my back, like fae jule gift box on WF, or wooden crate of some sorts in some story quests, and i thought it could be cool if i could equip some kind of backpack to have all the time.

    I think there is a lot of possibilities here, from backpacks, through jetpacks finishing on giant hourglasses and defiant magi-powered backpacks like wh40k marines have, Giant clocks, magic crystals and all sorts of cool stuff

    They could be in same slot as cape so you dont wear them both at once, and would be best to have them just as wardrobe stuff, but i dont really mind having to carry Flame crystal + 100 to dex

    The starting bag is a backpack

    Anyhow, the thing about those items is that they're so big that they will probably have clipping issues if you could mount with them?

    Some of the events (like the "Collect Shadestone" event) allow you to mount even with the Shadestone on your back.

    I could see some items being far more awkward to manage than others, but it'd still be a nifty idea.

    (And of course, it then opens up the idea for bards to wander around with a lute or horn on their backs...)

    Backpacks would be cool. I find most capes unappealing (too short and designs too busy) and backpacks would give us an option to hide ugly weapons by donning less visually obnoxious gear. I would really like to see the return of the backpack the survival chest piece started out with, or at least a version of the chest piece with the backpack. Removing it really removed a lot of its appeal.

    Chiming in for cosmetic backpacks for the cloak slot.

    I had been spoiled by the many cosmetic backpacks (which includes quivers) in LotRO: https://landrovalstyle.wordpress.com...ks-everywhere/

    Even if they made it a costume thing that you used in place of capes. (You can have a cape or a backpack, although that'd look weird having a backpack plus quiver.)

    I just realized this week with new wardrobe system the survival backpack is gone and would really like it back/backpacks that are functional for that adventuring spirit look and use.

    Thanks!
