Patch 4.2: We Bid Thy Keyring Adieu

We could actually stand to lose quite a bit of bag space unless an unmentioned compensating adjustment is made. Or lose access to parts of the game if we must give up the keys.

Could we have more clarification on this?


They're removing many more keys than they already have.
BC heroic keys? Sold.
Outdated/removed quest keys? Deleted.

On the day of 4.2, I will have at most 1 key. If I do have that key, I'll just delete it because I don't ever plan to kill Malygos again.
Indifferent rogue is indifferent.
The keyring will be back as a Premium User perk.
Watch.
Keys in my keyring I cant see them doing away with.

Relic coffer keys (BRD coffer runs)
Celestial Planetarium key (algalon)
Key to the Focusing Iris (maly)
Scarab Keys (aq20/40) 1 for each raid
The Eye of Haramad (lets you unlock minibosses in netherstorm)
Violet Hold key (wotlk heroic)
The Master's Key (kara)
5 x BC heroic keys

Thats 13 bag spaces already.
For those of you worried about losing bag space because of this, don't.

With 4.3, Blizzard will implement a new "Key Bag" feature, which will be much more immersive than the current key ring.

*the "Key Bag" will be implemented as premium content
I suppose this is a "Wait and See" kinda thing. I'll blow up then. For now I'm just going to hold my breath.
If the intent was the save the playerbase hassle, I think you guys missed the mark big time. My paladin is running out of bank/bag space fast as it is, not to mention the skeleton keys he makes. /disappointed
I'll miss collecting them but it's not like they're good for anything anymore. As long as I can get back to where those keys let me go before (Algalon, etc), then it's ok.
I noticed this on the PTR, and also noticed that several Quest Items I had saved in my bags and bank had disappeared - notably my archmage staff from Netherstorm, my Dartol's Rod of Transformation, etc. Particularly with Dartol's Rod which I believe is no longer attainable, that's quite a big loss for many who still had fun transforming into a furbolg, and I'm sure there are many other quest items people have held onto for various reasons. This explains why they disappeared from my bags on PTR as they must have been recognised as 'quest items' along with the quest item keys that were deleted.
Is there any way you can work around this so items we'd want to keep like the rod and staff won't disappear from our inventories as well? Or if not, perhaps just leave us to delete the quest item keys manually, rather than risking losing those items as well.

I'd hadn't mentioned the WotLK keys or others, and you're right. That's going need addressing or cause significant woe for the older, more widely traveled characters.

Algalon: Players no longer need to complete the quest to access this boss.
Malygos: Players no longer need to complete the quest to access this boss.
Violet Hold: Players no longer need a key to access this dungeon.
The Master's Key: Players no longer need a key to access this dungeon.
BC Heroic keys: Keys are no longer required to access the heroic versions of TBC dungeons.

If it requires me to use bag space that will be annoying. If the space from the keyring gets carried over to the default backpack in any way, it'll be worth it.
You do realize this is just going to inconvenience all the blacksmiths out there who have some of the older keys to open up lockboxes when rogues are too busy ganking in pvp, right?
Really this is upsetting, now I will have all the keys I have from leveling BS occupying bag space.

You shouldn't remove the key rings since they are really important to save space for us, now you are forcing us to carry keys, unless you remove keys to enter dungeons and plan making BS also a profession able to use lockpicks without using bag space this idea is bad.

Besides you will make this game bad if you get rid of the keyring, I know a lot of people will be disappointed by this.

Please don't ruin the game.

Do you have a source for this information?
I feel like I'm being punished for holding onto old items. It's like they whole keying system was a one night stand that blizzard is trying to forget ever happened.
Bashiok, can you maybe go into a little more detail about what keys are staying and what keys are going away? Is it just crafted keys and quest item keys that are staying? That would make sense. Getting rid of the keep-this-forever-just-in-case-you-go-back-to-scholomance type keys would be a good thing.

I just don't want to see any key suddenly taking up permanent residence in my bags.
