Trion, we have NEEDS before/with SL:
Some of this has been said before, and with good reason. Some of it was even hinted at during your live stream. However, I think the gravity of the situation needs to be pointed out. This goes beyond us simply wanting something. This is critical.
1 - We MUST have more role slots. Let's face it, if you do anything serious in this game you're expected to carry multiple roles in support of that something serious and, as a result, you typically end up with no freedom to play anything fun outside of that something serious. As a warrior I carry 1 tank spec, 1 pvp spec, 4 raid dps specs for different purposes... and now you're adding another soul tree, working on synnergy between the trees, enhancing existing trees... we will need more room to play with. Especially cleric players with all of the roles they can play. We just need more. General consensus around my campfires seems to be 10. I don't even think we care what it costs.
2 - BETTER macro storage. 20 - 25 macros that all roles/specs share. And 20-25 PER ROLE/SPEC, that change when you activate new role/spec. Enough of this all-in-one-window thing. We need these partitioned out into different storage/allotment per role. I have 2 macro slots available right now, and 0 fluff macros. I can't do fun little things like put an announcement into thunderous leap, etc. Can't do it. I don't have room. And now you're adding another soul, and hopefully more roles... we need more room for macros.
NICE TO HAVES:
3 - Macro import/export functionality. Save a set off to file, pull a set in from file. Something like this seems to exist but not be functional.
4 - Better storage for alternate gear. I currently use wardrobe slots to carry my pvp gear and tank gear. Problem is those don't carry rings, necks, weapons, belts... if we could pile those up in wardrobe slots, even if they didn't show, that would be extremely beneficial.
4.b - A command/button to load and unload gear into and out of wardrobe slots would be awesome. Something similar to loadequip/saveequip would be great.
I guess the point is that this game thrives on versatility and players who play into that versatility are hampered (punished) for doing so. This is about to get much worse with the new expansion, and I think this needs to be addressed before that goes live and hampers our ability to fully utilize the new stuff.
