Okay, not to get too into the whole 'WoW
should steal every Diablo III
mechanic and idea' bandwagon, but have you played
a timed event in Diablo III
? They're similar to the treasure room from Throne of Thunder, but they're randomized so you sometimes get a random dungeon to explore on a timer, sometimes you have to kill endless waves of stuff to get an extra treasure chest, some times it's a special monster trapped in an urn but it's always awesome
. It's fun when you get it done, and even when you don't
get it done it's awesome just because you immediately start planning out how to do it better. I actually have specific talent choices just
for the timed events.
It's a mechanic I absolutely love, and I want to see it in WoW
so bad. We've had escort quests before, and a few world events, but this particular mechanic I think is just awesome. So please please please World of Warcraft
masters, steal from your own company.
