Today's breakfast topic is a bit of a roleplaying
question as well. Yesterday we heard about the new coins
that were added to the water fountain at Dalaran in the Beta of Wrath of the Lich King
. There, usinging your fishing skill, you can find coins tossed in
by anyone from King Terenas Methenil to "Prince" Magni Bronzebeard, and see what it was that they once wished for.
It got me thinking, what would your character wish for if you could toss a coin into the fountain? Even if you don't roleplay, just imagine it for a moment. Or if that's really too much of a stretch for you, imagine that you the player could stand at the edge of that fountain and toss a coin in. Would your wish be any different from a fountain in the real world somewhere? Would you wish for epics, PvP glory, class buffs or something else related to your real life?
Even though my main character is a hunter, and war has kind of become her business, she's still a pacifist at heart. She always tries to disable her enemies rather than kill them, and she silently prays to the Light for the soul each person to cross her path, whether friend or foe. At the fountain, she would wish for peace on Azeroth. For my part though, I would personally wish for less QQ, bad mouthing and generally stupid communication in the game (I would save my wishes for peace on earth for a real fountain).
