    Don't know if it's been mentioned in the past 85 pages, and not going to go through them all to find out.
    Mounts in the lobby, which cause many players lag and which don't receive buffs, seems to be an exception to the no mounts in inside zones.
    Jester (veteran's benefit) in the lobby for days on end is annoying for many people. The constant spamming of text, shrinking/growing and other annoying characteristics of what is almost certainly the most ridiculous veteran's benefit ever given in EQ. I can count on one hand the number of times I've triggered that specific benefit, and I certainly didn't park in the lobby for days on end annoying other players.
    If it's a bug like I've seen with pets left in the lobby on occasion, the code should be fixed. I've seen pets abandoned for several days which finally disappeared without server going down, but this is the first time I've seen a jester in the lobby for days on end (Tunare server) in all the years I've played EQ (early 2000).
    I strongly suggest removing the exception for mounts in the lobby.

    Enter the lobby and look up. It's not an indoor zone.

    A new standard UI (User Interface) that does scale automatically with different screen resolutions. The style should be orientated on the classic UI but with modern features like multiple chat windows, extended target window and alot hot bars. This would make the game alot more attractive for new and returning players and could also attract all other players if done right. An external UI software tool for easy custom design should also be added.

    The /viewport command does not work well for taking screenshots and should be revamped and integrated into a new standard UI. Currently about 50% of the screen size is hidden behind UI elements but does get calculated by the CPU. An UI that does not make use of the viewport command does also hide about 50% of the world.

    I'd say :
    • Bigger crafted bags.
      Yes, I know, we do have big bags from hunter achievements, random drops, shop, etc, whatever, but for returning players, or alts, a little increase would help.
      As far as I know, the biggest craftable bags are the Transcendent ones, from CoTF, 20 slots once expanded.
      I don't ask for 36 or 40 slots bags, but maybe 24 would be a good starts (and on top of that, the droprate of the befouled silks for transcendent bags is prolly the worst of all silks :D )
      So 24 bags from conflagrant, or velium stuff, maybe?
      Oh, and maybe a craftable bag for collectibles , please? (the clicky things for collections)
      These things are clogging my bags in no time.
    • We do have ingame native audio triggers, I'd love to have the same but for text only messages instead of sounds. (without the need of GINA, or any log parser 100% of the time).
      Sometimes, I just cut the sound, so audio triggers are completely useless.
      The same system but with chat messages instead of sounds would be great (and strictly limited to chat messages btw, only /s , /g, /gu, /rs, /fs etc , no /cast, /alt nor anything like that, just chat messages)
    • And as already mentioned many times : Account to Account transfers.
      It worked for more than 15 years, and now, it doesn't exists anymore? Seriously ...

    I'd kill a gnome for that feature.
    wait, what? I already kill gnomes, all the time? oops

    I'll add to my previous post :
    /outpufile collectibles | missing
    /outputfile achievements

    The list of achievements is growing, and growing, and growing and is now longer than a day without pizza, so it becomes hard to keep track.
    /outputfile is not perfect, but most of us are used to type command lines in this old game.

    Oh, and can we get an option to export the output file in JSON format? Yeah, I guess I'm dreaming :p

    Make forage and fishing run through the advanced looting system so I can filter out items I don't want.

    Do away with progression quest completion timers. I'm so far behind in expansions/progression that I have to box because most have zero interest in older content. I would like to spend an hour or 2 on a quest and be able to come back to it when I have the time. I've had quests take me 4 hours to complete. The problem is that it's rare that I can commit that kind of time to one session. maybe just remove them from older expansions. I'm still trying to get through EoK but since I dont know how long a quest might take I'm pretty much stuck, so much so that I unsubbed my 4 accounts. I went an entire month without playing and decided it's not worth the money being at a stand still. anyway thats what I'd like to see.

    Make all class fade abilities have a toggle option to enable fading both you and your mercenary. Or give us an activateable mercenary fade.

    I would love to see old raid gear that is sold on vendors for raid currency be changed to selling them for plat instead have seen this done on other games would give people chance to see some of the old raid gear that they may have never got to wear.

    - A way to switch out type 5 augs automatically. Sometimes I need to be the Tank, Sometimes I need to be the DPS. Being able to save sets of type 5 augs would be awesome.

    Convince your server to move the lag pile to pok. Bristle has done so. Makes going to to tradeskills a bit of a lag fest but the lobby is very clean.

    You need a better monitor if 50% of your screen is hidden behind UI elements.
    A default UI throwing up a couple of sane default chat windows and then hotbars around the edges, does make sense.

    It might be only 40% but this is common for 19" screens that are considered small today.

    Fix general chat so it can handle more than 399. It should never have to be split into sections.
