Got one? Drop it in here. Let's see what people say. What exactly? Anything interesting that occurs to you on the spur of the moment. Warcraft related or not. ... but not political. You can keep yer politicking.
Here's mine; Has anyone ever wondered about the origins of the train dance? Every culture in Azeroth seems to have its own train and yet it would appear that Azeroth has never even had a locomotive travel system. Clairvoyancy? Random alien kidnappings and brain information dumps? Secret underground travel networks which neither faction wants the other to know about? You decide!
This is true but they obviously refer to locomotives. The Horde actually reach up to pull the steam-release chain in such a locomotive, all of them make "Woo-woo!" sounds and the Trolls even make circular hand movements like the metal tracts connecting the wheels of a locomotive and the Deeprun Tram has none of these things (yes, I looked - with a Tauren no less, it's surprisingly easy to get in there without hurting anyone if you know how).
It's a conspiracy, I tell you! Vast underground travel networks, vast ...
If you're timing's good, it can be faster to take a boat from one continent to the other and back, sailing around the far end, than to take the flightpath from Auberdine to Theramore.
Only humans age/reproduce? There's all kinds of little kids and teenagers running around the human cities, even a few oldsters (no models for these, but they're called "gramps" and such). Every other race seems locked in their prime. I understand some of the races have a backstory where they're long-lived or sterile or whatever, but surely they missed a trick here. Hell, even most of the mobs have different "ages" where the models are scaled differently; Ancient Harpitaur, Snotmantle Runt, etc.
Coming from EQ, I've never questioned the presence of the /train command, nor the querky emote that was associated with it. I would just lvoe to see a more a fluent use of such an emote. :twisted:
Transportation in general is subject to scruteny IMHO. If I could only get my Hyppogryph or Wyrvern to fly a straight path between point A and B, that would be an accomplishment in and of itself! Perhaps the first time flying to a location, a scenic detour up the river of Stanglethorn would be nice, just to see the sites, but after that - let's get to business. While my retarded Wyvern is going through every possible zone between Kargath and Arathi Highlands, the town of Tarren Mill is being pummelled to ashes! I could arrive 5 minutes earlier had it not been for the accursed beast stopping to say hello to his distant cousins in Wetlands...
Enter the portal system. While the gnomes and goblins clearly have a "lock" on all things gadget-ty, they could easily monitor the placement of such devices beyond BootyBay and Gadgetzan. Even the Horde would conform to a pact of not eating the Oompa-Loompa's in trade for such quick traveling bliss. And the occasional loss of body parts during re-animation is acceptable and expected, so that would not boon the process.
