@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.
