Breakfast Topic: What item slot would you create?

This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the AOL guest writer program that brings your words to WoW Insider's pages.

We're all intimately familiar with the 19 equipment slots on our character screens. There's nothing quite like the feeling of finally putting an item in an empty space on a low-level alt, and many players absolutely live for new gear at max level. Love it or hate it, care or don't, there's no denying the truth: Loot is a major part of the WoW experience. And the 19 slots we have -- head, neck, shoulder, back, chest, shirt, tabard, wrist, hands, waist, legs, feet, two rings, two trinkets, main-hand, off-hand, and wand/ranged/relic -- are filled and then updated almost constantly.

What if we made it an even 20? There are still some parts of the body left ungeared, so to speak, and other slots that could be broken down further. What if legs were two slots -- maybe kneepads and leggings? Or perhaps a vest/harness slot, worn under robes and armor but over shirts?

I'd add a slot for earrings. They could range from simple gold and silver studs for characters in their 20s all the way up to elaborate magical hoops and bars for 85s. Can you imagine sporting flashy gemstone earrings you ripped from the lobes of various bosses? My blood elf would enjoy rocking some seashell spirals stolen from Lady Naz'jar.

If you could add one more item slot to the character screen, what would you add and why? What kinds of items would that slot accept? Where we would we obtain them?
