I don't think it's much to ask..

Along with big changes rolled out in every patch, there are usually a lot of tiny changes and seemingly insignificant changes to the game; but often these tiny changes are often some of the most anticipated and celebrated.

Recent triumphs in the "finally" category:

- moonglade mailboxes
- being able to track quests that don't have any "objectives"
- turning off XP at will
- updated feral forms
- an extra stable slot for hunters
- flight form affected by Crusader Aura
- potions stacking to 20
- the ability to swap items after a misloot
- Ravasaur mount


With that in mind, here is my list of little things that I really can't see as being terribly difficult to implement.


Blizzard - I don't think it's much to ask:
  • ..that our characters to be sortable on our character collection screen.
  • ..that we have a tabard storage system similar to pets and mounts.
  • ..that we have a better pet/mount UI, with a search function.
  • ..that we have another druid race per faction. It's about time.
  • ..that we might upgrade our original 16 slot backpack.
  • ..that "lowbie" mounts could scale to the speed of our epics.
  • ..that we have a search button on our achievements.
  • ..that Blizzard fix our ongoing mouseover macro issue with Wild Growth.
  • ..that we have a 2000 Fish achievement.
  • ..that we have a 100 pet achievement.
  • ..that Chillmaw be made to be a summoned NPC.
  • ..that we could display the number of quests remaining in Kalimdor and Azeroth by zone.
  • ..that Australia would get its own servers (ha!)



What are yours?

What are the things that you wish would be implemented, and you just don't understand why they're not in the game already - after all, it's not much to ask, right?

Oh yes, Aussie servers would be fantastic (if unlikely). Funny how I didn't realise you were an Aussie until this post!

I would like a wardrobe. I have so many sets of clothes, not just the gear ones, but all the dresses, suits, bunny ears, cool shades, haliscan outfit, oh the list goes on.... If I could have some storage to keep them in maybe similar to the pets I would be a very happy girl. Almost as happy as I was when I finally got room to keep my 100+ pets in.

And yes - a 100 pet achievement - with a baby murloc pet as a reward please - one that makes the cute sounds they do on the quest in BT. Please? Nicely? I can make cookies.... really fast now I got my chef's hat.... if only I could find it in my bags.... hint hint.

SEQ :-)

Even if they moved the server down time 2 hours later. Tonights one was 10 pm which is much better than the normal 8pm...

An upgrade to the backpack and tabard storage would be great. Some things I'd like to see:

1. Mount tabards.

2. Able to do more while flying. Eat, buff, craft, etc (usually I just alt-tab)

3. Give herbers something other than a weak heal.

4. Body tattoo's for all races.

5. If reported twice for AFK'ing in 1 day whilst in a BG, lock them out for an entire week and deduct 10,000 honor.

6. An overhaul of level 1-60 greens/blues. Spirit on plate... com'on.

Bind to Account items should be available to all characters on your account. Its a novel concept but hey, I'm not interested in any more Bind to Faction and Server (BtFaS) items.

* ..that our characters to be sortable on our character collection screen.

I totally agree. I don't have that many so it isn't a big deal, but my main was the 3rd character I created - but I would prefere her at the top now.

* ..that we have a tabard storage system similar to pets and mounts.

Again, totally agree. I might acutally have fun with the tabards if that was an option.

* ..that we have a better pet/mount UI, with a search function.

Probalby not going to happen, you can get that ability with an add-on so why should blizz spend the time. (Until everyone uses that add-on)

* ..that we have another druid race per faction. It's about time.

Hmm, don't know enough about lore to have an opinion.... but I assume it is a lore thing.

* ..that we might upgrade our original 16 slot backpack.

Totally agree, Since I'm a tailor, I wouldn't mind if it was a tailor only ability :) We need a few more perks.

* ..that "lowbie" mounts could scale to the speed of our epics.

Hmm, interesting idea, however I do find it useful to use my old 60% mount when running with my friends low level alts.

* ..that we have a search button on our achievements.

Again, this can be done with an Add-on. I recomend Overachiever, very nice search ability.

* ..that Blizzard fix our ongoing mouseover macro issue with Wild Growth.

Yeah, that is a pain.

* ..that we have a 2000 Fish achievement.

But then the question (for any of these types of achievements) is how many is enough.

* ..that we have a 100 pet achievement.

And a new pet reward of course. :D Maybe this will come in the next expansion.

* ..that we could display the number of quests remaining in Kalimdor and Azeroth by zone.

Yeah, then I might actually be tempted by the Loremaster Achivement.

Well, I think some of these have potentials, some probably not gonna see any time soon.

Absolutely, an upgraded backback now most of us are carrying 2 sets of armor would be at the top of my list and no doubt we will get it before we get our own servers so maybe we can at least hope for that

Teldor said...

Seriously, a sortable character screen is something I've wanted for such a long time. It can't be that hard...

And of course Aussie servers. From starting on Proudmoore, playing with one of the guys that ran the ozgamers site and organised the original unofficial Aussie servers, and following any sniff of news, whispers of ISP dealings and hearsay - I would love to one day see such an announcement. I'm not holding my breath though.

I'd love just a really large bag that can only carry soulbound stuff, and not trade items, etc. This would be great for all those old armor sets you just cant bring yourself to get rid of. The wardrobe idea is good too, some place to store equipment/shirts/etc. My bank is at least 60% full of old armor sets, dresses, shirts, neat holiday stuff, and toys. Most of it soulbound so its not like I can shunt it off to a bank alt :(

Notabear said...

I want a quest bag. Something independent of the loot bags that keeps every quest item in it. There is no reason that I should have full inventory and not be able to pick up something for a quest without deleting something else prior.

Gnome Druids.

I want to mail anything to anyone of my toons regardless of faction or server. Your lore restrictions have already gone the way of the dodo.

MORE FREAKING INSTANCE SERVERS.
