Trophy for hunter!
I am a big fan of Monster Hunter and other hunt games. Hunting and trophy collecting always was something special for me. After killing dinosaur and other creatures, can we have trophies from them? Claws? Skulls? Pelts? Teeth? Shells?
Also, as I already read, corpse will despawn after 15 minutes. Does this mean that we can pull it out to the camp to show off the trophy?

Devs said you can drag corpses and that wont affect the despawning, as for trophies prob not at the start of EA but likely during sometime

I would imagine certain bodies would have a certain weight even when dead. I would think you would need many people to drag a T-Rex corpse back for example.

There are some Trophy Items earnable at EA launch, as well as some Apex Predator items that are kinda like Trophies but have a Quest purpose as well. However we also plan to do a lot more with Trophy Items as we get further into EA ;)

Yaaaay!...please let me collect human skulls and display them ;)

Nice. Yeah I asked about this earlier. Could we be looking at players collecting skulls and displaying them around their base? Possibly even make a trophy room?

Yep, skulls are likely. And by the way, at EA launch there is indeed a unique trophy item you can collect from dead players, similar to the Ears in Diablo. It is uniquely keyed to the unique ID of each player with some of their vitals info... ;)

Kinda cool idea for the PVP people.
Would the skull initially start off as a head and slowly erode over time into a skull?

Meanwhile if you moused over it, it would display the name of the person who it once belonged to.

hahaha would be funny if it was their skull with their name carved on it :P

The despawning after 15 minutes could get a bit annoying for some, fair enough they should despawn to prevent over flowing of corpses but for beasts maybe there could be an option to stop them despawning so you can keep them as trophies (taxidermi) or drag them back to base. As your base could be futher than 15 minutes away.

The thing on their wrist? I knew it was a tracker! Vital signs etc.

This is the best news I've heard since the game was announced!

You guys have been watching Batooom haven't you? :D

Good idea xxxDruidxxx -- we'll have dragging a corpse reset & halt the despawn timer -- it's just to prevent overflow anyway so we might as well incentive players to haul that corpse all the way home (fresher meat anyway, less likely to spoil on the way back :) . IT SHALL BE DONE!
