What I'd like to see:1. A PvP BG that incorporates flying mounts.2. Way more than changeable hairstyles, a la CoH/V. Why not let people have the ability to "dye" the color of their gear so they don't look like they stepped out of clown school?3. More cross-faction cooperation... maybe a zone where both Horde and Alliance have to work together to complete a goal, down a world boss or something?4. More world bosses, for that matter... there were way more in the original game than in TBC.5. Some focus on the "lost" areas of the game: Grim Batol, Uldum, the Emerald Dream... maybe have the Red Dragonflight in GB offer "bounties" or quests for killing Blue Dragonflight mobs in Northrend?

The dragonflights aren't at war...black isn't friendly to anyone anymore, but that's just due to deathwing going insane. Green is corrupted, but that's just a few and definitely not all the dragons. Blue is fine, Red is fine, Bronze is fine. Now, not all of them appreciate non-dragons at all... which is a completely different thing. They're the guardians of Azeroth and for the most part they've all got good reasons to hate most of the player races and especially most of the NPC races that are currently screwing up the planet. The corrupted/enslaved/etc dragons are an anomaly compared to the general dragon population, but all the dragons are friendly with each other except for the Black dragonflight. (who used to be the protector/earth dragons, but now they're just pretty much evil destruction dragons...)

I heard a while ago on one of the Wow podcasts, either the Instance or World of Warcast, that the way that Blizz built the armor models in the game would make it a gigantic hassle to allow people to change their color- they would have to go back and update every single piece of armor to do so.Not sure if this is a "making the old world flying mountable" big task or not, but that's what i've heard.

@Xeren:Blizzard has proven time and time again that stuff that "can't be done" is actually doable, but they don't want to put the programming hours into it.Why don't they really want flying mounts in Azeroth? Because all of the off-limits areas are so poorly rendered or literally just flat spaces that it would be embarrassing for them... so instead of re-rendering areas that are effectively useless, they just say, "no, can't do it" and leave it at that.It's literally a beancounting thing: They decide if X hours of programming time at Y dollars per hour is better spent creating fully customizable gearsets or working on the latest and greatest instance/zone/expansion. And shipping new product which means more sales will always win. Boatloads of profit or not, they still have a budget over there and a finite number of hours in which to code things.It sucks, as ultimately a lot of things go unfinished or forgotten. But it was just my personal wish-list, feasible or not.

Yeah, I understood all that, that's why i said that blizz said it would be a hassle to do, not impossible. They just don't think it's worth their time.My whole post was about the amount of effort required to do it, which is why i made reference to the flying mount thing, which is also a matter of effort.Not to be a jerk, but did you read my post at all?
