Blog Azeroth Shared Topic: Always Want What You Can’t Have
What is in game that you want, but you can’t have? Is there an animal you want to tame, a critter you want to collect, a tabard that has the perfect design for a transmog set etc etc.
What is it you want, but know you can’t get your hands on and have to stare at longingly whenever you log in?
I have read many of the responses to this Shared Topic so far this week, and I kept thinking on what WoW items I wish I could get that I really have no chance at. Then, I realized, what I really want from WoW has nothing to do with items. What I really want that I cannot have is WORLD EVENTS.
I started playing WoW about two-thirds through Wrath of the Lich King. So I missed:
The only one I have been present for was the most recent:
Believe me, I dragged Laz all over everywhere seeing everything I could possibly see! We took part in everything! We did all the quests. We did all the bosses – a lot. We tripped all the rifts. We did the Stormwind invasion every time we were on and it was going.
Yet, during all that, I hardly took any screenshots, somehow. It was all before my blog, and I was just too “Oooh shiny!” to have enough foresight to capture much. All I took pictures of was Laz and I in Twilight’s Hammer disguises.
Of everything. Really?
I am very excited about the upcoming pre-Mists World Events. I am not sure of all that it will include, but I hope there is a lot for players to participate in and do! Epic stuff! And this time, I will remember to take more pictures!
Speaking on the topic of World Events… I really hope Blizzard takes the chance with Mists and their goal of expanding open-world PvP and makes WoW more dynamic. By that I mean, more World Events! More patches that change the storyline in multiple places. More things that happen for a few weeks, and then get replaced by something else. More frequent content. Bite-sized content, but a near-constant trickle of new stuff.
That seems what an MMO should be all about – something new all the time.
Memories like all the previous World Events, but more often!
P.S. – Oooh, it will be so funny when Laz figures out I found and posted a picture of him in a dress.
