They have no plans to give options for any privacy in the game at all, other than the fact that random players cannot yet see your physical location in game and people can be /ignored.
When everyone was switched to battlenet, I had a few conversations with Blizzard about what they planned to do with the linking of all your characters on all your accounts in all your Blizzard games to one master username. They didn't understand the concept of privacy, and I was asked more than once why I wouldn't want everyone I ever met in any game to see me regardless of what character I was on or what game I was playing.
Want to login to check your auctions on your bank alt without being bothered to tank things on your main? Sorry, that won't be possible anymore once they finish the social networking features they are so hot to roll out.
Aug 21st 2008 5:43PM Your analysis of upcoming rogue combat talents is pretty much the same as mine. A rogue who consistently PvPs isn't going to be Combat specced. A rogue who is Combat specced is looking for talents that increase PvE viability. The new Combat talents are lackluster, and possibly the only upside is this will allow us to put more points in a secondary tree. It is a bit disappointing considering there are some other nice new 51 points talents for other classes.
