Quick parse and reply mode:1) Last names, go!2) Cosmetic outfits, no!3) More titles, go!4) More character customization, go!4) Apples and Oranges, no!Elaboration mode, engaged:Last names will be a great addition. And allow more than one Tom (note: not my name) on a realm. Even shorthand version. Timothy Wilkins could just show up as "Tim" in-game, with their full name in the tooltip. It's up to us to report the fools with ass-names.Cosmetic outfits defeat most of the reason people play: Showing of ur epicz! Sure, you may look like a clown until you get everything you need, but that's a motivator, and makes the payoff even greater. Also, nobody wants to get their face eaten after being beaten down by an undead rogue in the latest arena gear who just happens to look like they're wearing a pretty pink dress with a flower in his hair. Though I sure would like to see a whole lot less of that PvP red crystal staff. The very first time I saw one I thought "Wow.. cool"... now it's more common than gold spammers at the mailbox.I've never had more than an old-school PvP honor title.. and even that was no more than bottom tier rank. But anything to make me feel like the time and effort I put into the game is recognized by more than just a faction vendor. Exalted status with any faction should get a title.... and a little more respect from the NPCs at least. Level 70 raiders I'm sure don't appreciate being called "whelp" or what-have-you by some level 40 NPC in some small town.Character customization is desperately needed. 90% of the troll women have the same face. And they're so simple to do. come on, Blizzard, it's just silly that you haven't done this yet. haircuts don't count. Add anything you can.EQ2... yuck, much? I couldn't get past the look of it. I'm all for stealing some of their better ideas... but tell your friends not to be patting themselves on the back because they switched to EQ2 instead of WoW. If there was ANY game that had the potential to dethrone WoW, it was EQ2. And EQ2 bounced off of WoW like a superball off of concrete..

Incorrect. Cosmetic Outfits, as they are brought up in this articel, do not 'defy' anything. Cosmetic outfits are not a requirement or an automatic overlay, they are an option. If you want to show off your PvP/T6 gear, you absolutely can and should. If you had read the article properly, you would also have noticed that the author promotes not making this an option for PvP. I agree to you assessment about titles. NPCs of a faction I am in will standing with treating me like every other whelp make me raise my eyebrows.

So, you're saying that if in EQ2 I wanted to "disguise my true power" by wearing a pretty pink dress, I couldn't do it?Am I incorrect in thinking that this feature could be used maliciously?
