Let's. Really. I think of the things I nudge my potential recruits with, from other games. And the way when I first logged on I discovered all the useful and fun bits available to you, free of charge. And some of these things are possibly taken for granted since we're all now so used to them - and then I log onto er, another game, and I remember. SO.
I'm talking specifically in this case about things that have been given or put in for vanity, and are used by RPers on a regular basis.
I doesn't have to transmogrify anything! Goodbye, level 9 statless gear to die in RP-PvP! Hello, looking good! Hello being able to cycle through outfits, and with a tick of a button, remove the hat - without having to faff about unequipping it, then spending a minute looking for it in your bags to stick the damn thing back on.
OH MY GOD THERE'S SO MUCH COSMETIC STUFF TO SWAP AROUND AND CUSTOMISE ARE THEY MAD SO MUCH POTENTIAL UNIQUENESS FOR EVERYONE MY BRAIN CAN'T CONTAIN IT ARGHHHHHH. AND I HAVEN'T EVEN GOT THE EMBER ISLE HATS YET. AND THERE'S AN EXPANSION COMING SOON.
Lucky Coin Items, Consumables, and Drops
I was in heaven when I saw campfires for sale at that vendor. And they last so long too. And it didn't end there... Beware the bush that watches you, Silverwood. Tamed bracken? My Elf uses it ICly. The items that turn you for half an hour into an NPC of your selection? Fantastic stuff! I've been able to GM events for my guild as a wisp, simply so it removes my PC presence as an encroachment and allows me to get on with narration. The day is not far off when I will convince Tasia to feature as a shambler and eat someone's leg...
Maybe this is just me, but there's a loooooot of stuff in this game that is given to us as roleplayers, even if my main does walk like a duck. Just thought I'd throw that out there - I know I've missed things, so feel free to add your own.
