07/11/2011 07:17 PMThe teleport functionality needs to be added to the battle tabards for the respective factions and the trinkets made usable for the levels they were designed for (e.g. providing useful stats for everyone instead of random rubbish like frost resistance). That way no new trinkets need to be added ever again and players don't gimp themselves by equipping a sub-par trinket (and it really is ridiculous now that we're 25 levels above the old trinket that this issue hasn't been addressed).

Excellent idea. Would give us a reason to wear the AV tabards while playing AV. Right now I run around in my AB tabard just to show off how long I've pvped in this game, lol.
Another thought I had about AV. What if it were possible to rebuild the towers after they had been burned (and therefore restore the associated warmaster/marshall)? Allow me to explain my thinking...
If the changes/reversions we are discussing here were to happen, then chances are that the average length of an AV would go up, which most posters here agree would be a good thing. However, it means that the likelihood of joining an AV already in progress will probably go up. I remember joining AVs "back in the day" where my team was losing pretty badly, and people were leaving the BG in response. I think it would be interesting in this case to allow a sort of reset to the BG.
This doesn't need to be (and shouldn't be) something that's easy to do. Maybe put it on a timer (like an hour or more), or have it require a large amount of turnins (similar to how we turn in armor scraps to buff up the NPCs), or both.
I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but I figured I'd throw it out there to continue the discussion. If the queue times for "classic AV" are relatively short, then this probably wouldn't be needed. But if the queue time for an AV is long and I join one already in progress that's been heavily one sided, I'd like the chance to recover from the mess the previous AVers left.
Anyway, just an idea I thought I'd throw out there.
