Starter Backpack

Ok can someone confirm that there is no alternative to the starter backpack?

Because if there is no alternative then why call it the starter backpack?

As far as I know it's the only option. When the game launched, it was able to be removed and some clever people would create a character, put the backpack in storage and then delete the character thereby getting free 20 slot bags. Anet put a halt to that by making it unremovable. I believe you can change where it's at in the column but that's about it.

I must confess a certain amount of irrational annoyance that it is called starter backpack. It should be just called backpack

Actually there are at least 3 other backpacks in the game. Granted they are not inventory items but backpieces. You can get any of the three using guild commendations from the commendations merchant. They are the Guild Caretaker Backpack, Guild Assassin Backpack and Guild Defender Backpack. So calling the inventory the "starter backpack" is both a way of identifying it and since it is the one you start with it does make since.

Because you MUST start with that backpack. It is the start to your characters storage woes and many doomed hours spent playing gw2. You must STARTER BACKPACK to starter you Guild Wars 2 obsession!

Yeah. Okay. I made that crap up. I really don't know what to tell you there

OK that's mildly interesting.
