    1. The ability to craft shields --- we can make weapons, armor, jewelry and even craft scrolls. It is time to be able to craft shields. Two options for each type, small and large. Basic types could be round, rectangular and a couple variations of triangular.

    2. All heroic pants to NOT have a mini-skirt. What's wrong with a tucked in shirt look?

    3. All heroic boots don't need to come all the way up to the knee. (and many have kneepads attached) Would like to see some more variations on boots that are not so dang tall.

    4. More haircut/hairstyle options. An ogre or a gnome with a Mohawk would look great!!!

    Distorting Guard, Refraction Tower Shield and Petrified Wood Shield are player made shields.

    all 3 are very bad and dont even have a 16 and 17 aug slot like the other crafted armor has. If they are so bad no one bothers crafting them then they might as well not be in the game.

    A logical graphics option menu, with more features like built in anti aliasing and vsync. I have no problem with the arcane nature of the graphics option myself, but it should be streamlined so more people can understand it -- and by streamlining, I mean combine options in a "Low, Medium, High" drop down instead of having like 5 different shaders in individual check boxes. Most importantly, it should be integrated into one place in game, having some options locked only to patcher makes no sense to me.... just make it clear if you change the option in game you may have to restart EQ for it to go into effect.

    Auction house. Cross zone trading and offline bazaar is not a very elegant work around, just go all out and make a real AH. So you may lose a few gold subs over trader accounts, but do you really want to make that a source of revenue? It's the 21st century.

    Real maps + mapped quest objectives. MS paints maps = not cool. It's also crazy that many quests require us to go to a certain area but doesn't indicated in game where to go. I don't mean put markers for every item and mob on the map, but in most newer MMOs they shade a general area on map where you can find what you need.

    Real DPS for non-DPS classes. In EQ, non-DPS classes do only 15-25% the DPS of real DPS classes. In other MMOs, it's more like 40-60%. This doesn't break the game. I don't think the demand for zerkers, necros, and wizards would change at all if encs, clerics, and warriors could do 40% of their DPS on burns.


    Idea regarding WoW-style LFG tool/Group finder:

    Since some people mentioned this, something I wish these tools had was a reputation system, where after the group you had the option to thumbs up or thumbs down every player.... and that when the sample size gets long enough, this would effect your priority in the queue, but be completely hidden.

    Granted, I don't these styles of tools working in EQ unless there's a complicated menu so you can specify classes and AA levels, etc.

    The poster said it is time to be able to craft shields. That is what I was replying to. If he'd asked when will players be able to make shields, weapons, armor etc that's uber and better than items that drop in game my reply would have been probably never.
  7. Qest T. Silverclaw Augur

    Players should be able to craft, or at least help craft powerful items. I think having a Mage in the group should mean most of the group using some summoned gear!
  8. Sinestra Augur

    For the love of god can we please finally get pet inventory windows, real transparency on numbers like AC, and current run speed!
  9. Qest T. Silverclaw Augur

    They just bumped up everyone's speed. Wait till it goes live and then complain if it's still not enough.

    No so much a feature but I wish some of the pre-pop raid zones became instanced like PoTime. It's nostalgic for those who come back and want to stop old enemies but nothing is ever up. Most items are NODROP anyway so it really wouldn't hurt anything.
  11. Sinestra Augur

    I never said anything about bumping up speed nor did I mention anything about how slow anyone is. If you read what I stated, I said showing us the level of our speeds.

    I just want to know when I use a mount if it is picking up my fastest mount speed. I swear I get a mount sometimes and it doesn't go as fast as my casino drogmor. Makes me a sad panda!
  14. Underbrush Elder

    /Autofire on and /autofire off would be good, right now it is a toggle with no supported augments.
  15. krivin New Member

    Veteran rewards being account bound, so that all new characters made would receive them no matter how many you created, tried and then deleted.

    Pet inventory / stat window

    Old models being able to use mounts without having to use an illusion

    After 20 expansions and 15 years, I would like to see innovative content rather than old crap barfed out with low standards, compared to the current game direction of formally making the first 85 levels obsolete along with most of the interesting AA's, leaving a game with few new spells, little new content, only 15 levels of play.

    I'd like to see an expansion made by someone who cares about more EQ than just paying next months rent and rushing out content 8-16 months before it is ready so they can charge new fees for the expansion and somehow justify the $15 subscription fees before this newly rehashed content becomes as obsolete as the first 13 years of the game.

    a guild banker in the bazaar

    I always thought it would be interesting to have a 'player faction' feature. You could target someone and hit + or - to anonymously flag them as a nice guy, or a jerk, and if you /considered them it would show their accumulated score. Each account could only flag so many people before the oldest one they flagged wore off, so they would have to be selective how many they flagged.

    A group of friends/box accounts could all + each other... but they already have friends/boxes to group with, so it would be pointless and harmless.

    I don't know if it would be a good or bad idea, but would be an interesting social experiment.

    a better map window, added tools, lasso, eraser, free edit points, more layers etc
    could even make events that require using map window with the option to be able to see the whole raid members. I personally use the map a good portion of the day and I am sure alot does aswell, so it would be logical to have better and usefull tools offered to us that make you feel like you are looking at a map and not a UI from commodor 64

    A search feature for personal bank items. I can't find anything in my mess lol.

    Fix autofollow when windowed on 2 accounts so the follower is not flung around and circling when you stop.

    I know Devs has stated no upgrades for epic weapons but EQ without epics sucks I want epic 3.0's.

    Druids getting summon animal spells pets could be less powerful than beastlord pets but more powerful than enchanter, sk and shaman pets.

    Heroes Forge gear better colorization Bloodforge is Pink not red. More Gothic or Evil looking heroes forge rotting or degraded looking.

    Better looking mounts Wyverns, Drakes, Griffons, Hippogriffs, Armored Rhino, stuff like that.

    Customizable gear like on DoN merchants but updated to todays standards.
    Unique spells.
    No more cut and paste stuff for the last many years all gear and spells are no longer unique they are all just upgraded stats with a new graphic.
