this really is going over the top.. i am very much colorblind. the only thing i have ever had problems differentiating in wow are blue and purples which is really a non issue seeing as how if you aren't a complete idiot you will be looking at the stats, not just the color of the text. i do occasionally have trouble telling between the green and yellow quest or item creation text but again, it can be discovered with a little simple thought or experimentation rather quickly. im just a little confused by this because it seems they are assuming colorblind is more synonymous with "stupid" than a little hard of sight. how about less tailoring to colorblind people and more results in the new druid form department? i, as a colorblind druid, fully support this idea.

There are multiple types of colorblindness as different people are more blind to various parts of the color spectrum. You seem to have a red colorblindness(blues/purples) while others are green colorblindness(greens/oranges/blues).I wholly applaud Blizzard for doing this. There are few enough games that recognize the limitations that are prevalent in this world. The fact that they are so aware of it is very, very nice.
