@ Avrus - No what they said was that due to how the database works in WoW they felt is was unsecure to implement those changes. And obviously making a backup of the whole playerbase DB wasnt feasable.[quote]In order to remove ammo we would have to ( move the location of all of a character's bank slots on the database that stores all of the World of Warcraft characters, ) which would be a risky thing to do in the middle of an expansion, [/quote]Regards

Huh. I don't understand why they don't just make all the new bows like the legendary one, which makes its own arrows... OR give hunters an ability like rogue's poison making, where only hunters can train it, and they make soulbound "arrows" which are implemented like a buff to the weapon, like poisons. The "arrow" buff would upgrade the base level arrows that the weapon comes with.If they make arrows like poisons or shaman imbues, then all they have to do is implement BoP formulae for better arrow buffs. (WTB a Ulduar windfury recipe)

Jafar, I agree with the first comment. Though, the big thing about that legendary bow, was the fact that it made its own arrows (main reason it was Legendary instead of epic).That second idea wouldn't be done though. They removed the "poison" system and made it a basic consumable in lich king, so they wouldn't go back to that system for hunters I'd think.

^thisA legendary bow was already implemented that did not use consumable (or any) ammo. The coding is there. I think the impacts of changing the code for all bows would have less risk that the whole bag slot deal./foreheadslap
