Stuff like this is why I love WoW. The Steampunk elements and some of the specific factions and a good chunk of the silly stuff separate the setting from Lord of the Rings and Conan.I don't play WoW to pretend I'm in a fairy tale setting or a "classical" fantasy setting.The Steampunk stuff is a part of the package for me.Now... I can only hope the Achievements system will give my human the ability to unlock a new "Greaser" haircut... and maybe even some dances ripped from Grease or Elvis.Of course, for maximum effect, you should do this as a ROGUE, since they already play with knives and wear leather.Any chance of getting a 40s/50s lounge/dance club into the game? All the bikers at the bar ordering booze. Crowds of people showing off their new dance moves in some sort of competition. And maybe a Tauren female belting out Ella Fitzgerald-style music after dark, with the L80ETC doing "British Invasion" music.Maybe revamp/expand Booty Bay and turn it into a sprawling city with lots of Indiana Jones/Lara Croft/pulp serial nods with quests that really play up all the great archaeological sites in the game. (It wouldn't hurt to give Uldaman and Gnomer a makeover in the process.)One thing I've been dying to see is a club with a "jacket and tie" dress code. Where you literally aggro the guards if you aren't in formal wear. Dueling would be fun in there. :)

Damn straight. Rogue engineer here, with leathers and goggles at the ready, prepared to look BADASS!
