Breakfast Topic: Where do you play WoW? {WoW}

Jun 6th 2011 10:00AM In my very small room, in a (sadly) rather uncomfortable chair. I'm hoping to improve my computer area soon.

Firstly, This is wonderful and Blizzard needs to do more things like this.

Secondly, I don't see it being said anywhere that they are all spirit beasts. Did I miss a sentence somewhere, or are we fretting about nothing?

Cross-realm Dungeon Finder premium service coming soon {WoW}

May 17th 2011 7:54PM A few things.
First and foremost, this sounds amazing, and the fact that it's being worked on excites me to no end, and essentially everything said right now is pure speculation. However, I do have an issue or two with it's proposed implementation. For one thing, I understand the point of view of people saying that optional means you can choose not to, and that it isn't a big deal, this is technically true. However, this is a little different than paying to change server, or faction, or what-have-you. This is essentially saying that if you want to make full use of what the RealID system is now capable of (and really, what I'm willing to bet a large majority of us envisioned the point of it being at some point), you need to pay extra money.

Now, I'm confident that it will be no more than $5 or so; Blizzard seems pretty good about pricing on these things so far. However, if they're willing to make us pay to group up with cross-server RealID friends, it would be no stretch of the imagination to assume that they would be willing to do the same thing with non-RealID friends cross-server, when the ability to favorite or "like" people you group up with in the Dungeon Finder inevitably becomes reality; again, this would be fair, but something that I would reasonably expect to come as a part of the Dungeon Finder already. Additionally, with it being a package, that presents an opportunity for Blizzard to add more things to the pot, and increase the pricing. What if it becomes too much, and I don't want to pay for all of the things being offered? I don't own a smart phone, or anything close; if it includes the mobile AH and guild chat, can I opt to pay only for the RealID perks, since I can't even use the other two?

I guess my point is, it seems like Blizzard's micro-transactions are moving away from small quality-of-life improvements, to bigger ones, and it isn't a good sign for the future.
