We hear/read things every now and then about BoAs and the restrictions, the efforts, the complications, etc; but let's delve a bit deeper and see what ideas you've come across, Blizzard? I've seen some good ones mentioned on the forums by other posters and have even thought of them myself.
So I've created this thread not to complain that the BoAs are not BoA; not to complain about about how OP they are in battlegrounds (Tears, so delicious); not to complain about how long it's taking Blizzard; but to further assist Blizzard in the genesis of TRUE bind on account equipment!
So my suggestion starts with Mr. Chilly.
How did you create this game code? I logged on for WoW's fourth (I think) anniversary, got a pet that will now forever be sent to every new character I make, Horde or Alliance. Can you not start with this idea?
Sure, it fills inboxes with unnecessary gear, but! Mail can be deleted; so can gear. What about if I wanted it back after deletion? What am I going to do (as a Rogue, for example) with wussy cloth gear, int leather, or mail/plate gear I cannot wear? In some dire circumstance where (now I'm a Druid) I need that int gear, a ticket could place the gear back on the character. These tickets should not increase SLA very much at all as only stupid people (wait...) would put in a ticket for an absurd reason.
Still, this is a start. Blizzard could fine tune this with ease, I'm sure. I'm no developer/programmer/coder/etc, but it is easy to take something that exists and modify it (No jab intended on Cata content; I personally enjoy my game time. I do this with HTML at times as well. :) ) and make it so it recognizes your class type and gives you only your specified armor (Like satchel of helpful goods. It's not always helpful, but it's always the same gear type).
Thoughts? Own opinions? Add to it and let's finally solve the developers' dilemma!
Edit: I'm really not looking for you to argue with me or call me stupid with my idea. It's my idea; I'm asking for your own contribution to a solution, not your aggressive attitude to establish the fact that my idea may not be the best, or Blizzard wants something else, or has already thought of something else. For those new to the thread, please read a little closer and take the subject seriously "Conjure your solution to actual BoAs!"
