"things that, outside of counting for totals for achievements, have little to no real effect on gameplay. "
Achievements have no real effect on gameplay. Don't kid yourself that they do.

Oct 1st 2010 10:07AM Exactly this. I've spent most of five years regretting being "stuck" in a pure DPS class with no ability to tank or heal and too much time investment in that character to ever re-roll.
I'm cutting the strings with Cataclysm and starting again.

Have you never lost half a raid to a combination of lag and butterfingers to the blobs after Patchwerk? Or wiped because a tank failed the jump on Thaddius? Less of those, please.
The mechanic I'd take from another game is epic class-specific solo quests that require skill rather than gear, taken from WoW 1.x :-)

I liked it so much I married her :-)
Feb 26th 2010 6:20AM @CM How about a class change feature where you become level 1, lose all your weapon and riding skills, and all your quest history, and are instantly teleported back to your starting zone (cinematic and all)?
You keep your achievements, faction rep, flightpaths, trade skills, gear (99% of which is now vendor trash) and currencies.
Sure, you'll level up quickly - but not much more quickly than someone who'd rolled a completely new character with heirlooms, or someone's mate who's never played before and joined on recruit-a-friend.
I've played my character - one character - for five years. I think class change (done right) makes much more sense than race change or faction change ever did. And if I could take my level 80 Tauren Hunter, and convert him to a level 1 Tauren Paladin in Cataclysm, I'd be happy to level up again. I just don't want to lose everything my character is and has done in order to get that.
