    Why split Pathfinder into multiple parts, and why have Part 2 take months before players can really begin working on unlocking flying?
    With all the new geometry being added to armor, what's preventing the art team from finally adding librams, quivers, ammo pouches, etc?
    Question: Are you guys planning to make raiding great again and how?

    P.S. removal of Armor Sets, Master Loot, M+ dominance
    Do you have plans to make locks and dks not garbage you keep saying that there is plans but show us nothing
    Why are professions irrelevant?
    Are you planning on removing the heavy-handed global cooldown changes that have zero observable benefits while sporting one of the most offensive disadvantages of all time in the complete annihilation of your hyper fluid combat system?
    Why have Worgen/Goblin updates been planned for 5 years/3 expacs, and yet we've never even seen any wip (work in progress) of them?
    Can we please no longer have RP realms shard with Normal realms? This is happening more than during "server stress" periods. Servers have lost their identities over this and it is getting worse.
    Is there plans for “solo” players in regards to character end game power progression (ie: mage tower type of thing but with ilvl rewards instead of transmog)?
    Umm thread has been here 2 days, but no questions......? >_>
    Can you fix polearms so that they properly point tip down on the back, instead of sheathing with the tip up and awkwardly insta-flipping when you unsheath them?
    Can Hero Classes earn the heritage armors for classic races?
    Can we get increased GM support for RP realms when it comes to your policies? Immersion is broken constantly due to bad apples that are purposely ruining RP events / experiences.
    Can we get an update on the shaman updates? The shaman community has received little to no update regarding the dps spec(elemental and enhancement) especially for 8.1. Elemental has felt left in the cold compared to other competitive classes and specs(ranged dps)

    Thanks!
    With so much focus on Dungeon, Raiding and World Quests, when will you add some focus on the open world to where it feels like an open world. There is not too much out there after you reach max level, more like a dead world.

    And to sort of go with this, why make ending quest lines force you through dungeons and raids when it is not needed.

    The design team did an AMAZING job at creating the new zones, why not use them. Treasure hunts, maybe weekly bounty hunts for certain NPCs, there has to be something to get this huge awesome looking world used and explored. Something worth doing besides WQs.

    ** Edit ** And not Island Expeditions / Warfonts - Real world exploration
    How is the team feeling about the GCD change? There appears to be pretty heavy backlash with essentially zero positive support from the player base. The best you get from players is "meh, I don't really notice" while many absolutely hate it. Do all the categories you added feel appropriate? Offensive, Defensive, Movement, Utility?

    This is easily one of my least favorite, and most unfun changes, for my enjoyment of playing my class in BfA. Can we expect more reversions soon?
    Is the class team planning on making ranged more fun and mobile? There is a reason people love playing a BM hunter.
    Enhance Shaman fixes? When, where, what, more than likely never?
    Are there any plans on fixing the Dark Iron heritage armor? The belt has been missing the additional armor since release. It shows the extra armor in the embassy and the website.
