My WoW Wishlist — Spectator Seats
I know if I thought of it many have before me, but I’m too lazy to search the forums. And scared. I always feel like I’ve wandered into the wrong side of town and I’m going to get mugged there. Or trolled, or spat upon, that’s a tough crowd.
But anyway I would so love it if Blizzard implemented an 11th, 26th, etc. spot in a raid. You would be in the same out-of-bodyness kind of state that you are when you’re dead, to keep you from inadvertently aggroing something and wiping the raid.
You could be a tourist, taking in the action and sights without having to worry about standing in bad. Guilds could use it as a teaching tool, it would be a great way for learning a new encounter for members.
Yeah, I know, now the stupid little non-raiders want to see the raids without any of the work. Yup, I do. But really, believe me when I say this. You DO NOT want me in a raid with you unless I’m in wisp form. I have one super-good hand and one working at about 50%. It was broken in a sort of, I don’t know, dog skiing accident and never really healed properly. It’s good enough for rl, but not so great on a keyboard. Let’s see, my eyesight is well, marginal. I have been wearing glasses or contacts since I was two, so I’d probably be standing in the fire wondering what you’re yelling about. Oh, and then I am after all, the ancient. Reflexes aren’t what they used to be, there’s a definite lag there. Occasional brain lags too.
The only problem I see with this, and the reason it would probably never be implemented is that price tag. I see all kinds of potential for abuse there. The top guilds would be selling seats for a bazillion dollars on eBay. But hey, it could happen. Now I’m going to go check my lottery ticket cause I’m pretty sure it might be that 1 in 175,711,536 that hits. Sheesh, silly little Night Elf dreamer.
