1: Charms (tradeable)
2: Charmbags (nontradeable: holds charms)
3: Ears (oh yeah!)
I second this. I was actually thinking about something very similar earlier today and could expand on this point a little.
1. Re-introduce charms.
2. Make a charm bag.
3. Make a gem bag. Surely I'm not the only person who used the horadric cube as gem storage. We all did that at some point.
4. Introduce new gems and make the existing ones incredibly powerful, enough to build toward and around.
5. Introduce the third skilled vendor. We know its coming. That empty stall in each town is such a tease for what could have been. Mystic or whatever she was going to be called. Make it so you can pay her in extreme amounts of gold or in gems. Unnecessary? Probably, but I like the thought of paying her in gems as a commodity.
6. Ears. The quoted post is what pushed me over the edge and prompted me to log in and post. You should create a feature that allows higher leveled players not on your friends list to have a rare chance of dropping ears from brawling. These ears could then boost the power of string of ears as long as the ears are in your inventory. Other 'outside the box' legendary examples would also be nice.
7, and most importantly: Please develop a significant
gold sink (emphasis). New crafting recipes are very cute. Truly. I love them. But recent events have only exacerbated an already looming issue: the longer the game is played, the more gold in the system. As of now, there are few meaningful ways for gold to leave to system. I think introducing new crafting recipes was a phenomenal step in the right direction. We need more of it.
Blizzard, by not rolling back you have respected the time and effort of the many who have played since 1.0.8 dropped. You have also taken on the immensely heavy burden of tracking down each transaction by the offenders of recent exploits. Kudos. A goldsink was something that already needed to exist. I think we need one sooner now.
Edit: Removed a couple sentences to make myself appear like a more reasonable person ;) Blues can see whats up.
