I’m level 30 now.Â I’ve spent the past day maxing my reputations, testing builds, PvPing, and doing some real nitty gritty beta testing.Â Whether or not my efforts at reporting bugs or suggesting improvements are futile, I still want to contribute what I can.Â Below are some general ways to improve the game.
Chat Interface – It needs additional functionality and improvements to its customization.Â There is no /who command among other things.Â Linking items into chat would be a nice feature.Â Overall it needs to be brought up to speed with modern chat enhancements.
Guild Window – It lacks functionality.Â The Guild Info button does not work.Â It could do with more options and tools like the ones in WoW.Â If nothing else, just fix what is currently there.
Other Windows and Frontend – More functionality to other windows would be nice as well.Â A nice social window with search options and LFG would be useful.
UI Improvements – A minimap would be nice, although I have gotten used to not having one.Â Map improvements with the ability to zoom would help.Â More map functionality for us to see Sites of Power and who holds them could increase PvP frequency at those points.Â Unitframe bug fixes are also on the top of the “must fix” list.
Itemization – Gear diversity is teetering on the edge of almost right and not enough.Â I would like to see more options for my gear.Â It’s better than some games, but there are still certain items I know I want and they’re the same ones everyone wants.Â There is an ideal setup for each class and spec each level.Â Not that there isn’t in other games though.Â I remember playing WoW and knowing that at 19 I wanted the staff from Wailing Caverns and that the Scarlet Monastery gear was where it’s at for the 30’s.Â Diversity helps though.Â It feels like stats on gear are a bit cookiecutter.Â More stat diversity on gear could be the solution.
Reputation Gear – It feels slightly throwaway.Â This ties in with itemization diversity.Â Every new zone brings with it a new reputation or two that offer gear for Trusted and Respected.Â Working towards this gear is part of your natural progression through the zone.Â It would be nice if stuff just lasted longer.Â Â That sorta counteracts the request for diversity if we’re holding onto stuff longer, I know.Â Perhaps these reputations can make a return and offer us higher level gear?Â Maybe allow us to pursue different reps that others are not and introduce more reputation ranks along the way.Â Depth to the rep/faction system would help it not feel so throw-away.
Tool Tips, Translations, and Bug Fixes – Many of my tool tips ase a Warden are just plain wrong.Â Wisdom does not tell me that it affects melee like Finesse does – same for perception.Â Several talents say one thing and do another, have incorrect values, or do not work.Â My Gibberling racial does not work.Â These may already be fixed in the next version, but they’re bothersome.
I have the video of Castle Blight bosses done.Â I was in the middle of a Tensess Temple run when the servers came down (doh!) so there’s only one boss recorded for that.Â I have some PvP footage too that I’ll compile.
