Don't even get me started on EQ2... played that for nearly 3 years before switching to WoW. Aside from the last name thing, I don't want any of what you're talking about in WoW.Customization? OK, how about ludicrously dis proportionate faces because someone thought it would be funny to make the most horridly grotesque thing they could and name him Mrextremely Frownyface? Aren't the Night Elf faces of perpetual constipation bad enough? At least EQ2 didn't let you adjust bust size... as anyone who played Vanguard knows, that results in a bevvy of females that look like they're going to tip over with a slight breeze from behind.Titles? Oh I had scads of them... more than I ever used. You know what? They were mostly meaningless because just about all of them were earned through nothing more than mindless time investment. "Destroyer of" titles only acted as a flag to let people know that you actually had enough spare time to kill 100,000 gnolls or whatever the number was.And lastly... the cosmetic layer. No thank you. I like being able to spot a class at range based on their gear. It's sort of useful in PvP too, which is probably the biggest reason WoW will never do it. While I'm sure many people would love to hide their Season 3 set under a level 1 robe, that just feels cheap to me.Oh, and guild levels and player housing was just abysmal as well. Horrible time sinks with ultimately no purpose... and the crafting process. God, I spent all those years trashing WoW, and looking back I wish I had spent them playing it instead.
