@jriz:First off, good job actually approaching me like a little bit more of a human being this time. You still make some pretty senseless jabs, but I'll humor you."You admit you don't know why, yet you repeatedly insist its a simple fix."You're taking my words and twisting them. I said "I'm not sure why they wouldn't do it. ....eventually." That's "wouldn't." I feel an English lesson may be in order, in case there are others who've misinterpreted me. "Would" is what's known as a modal auxilliary verb, and its main function is to show willingness, prediction, hypothesis, and (though this isn't how I used it) insistence.Willingness. Prediction. Hypothesis. These are things that happen in the future. I didn't say "I don't know why they haven't done it." I said "I don't know why they wouldn't do it. ....eventually." If a person who isn't looking for troll fodder read this, they might realize that I imply that it's low on their priority list, but at some future hypothetical date when they've got a spare developer to devote his Tuesday downtime to inserting those lines into the database, why wouldn't they? Then, a month later when there's another spare developer to code a couple of functions, they would add in the checks to those items. Then, another month later, someone could code the NPCs.So, there you go. I don't know why they -wouldn't-. Eventually. :) Also, news flash: Blizzard pulls ideas from the player base all the time. You're not under some illusion that they thought up dual specs or armor set management on their own, are you? They're very smart people, but you can't beat the sheer number of great ideas that come from a player base of 12 million.
