We all know there is no perfect MMO that everyone would enjoy, look at the crop we have now X amount love this one and X amount hates that one.
What I want to hear is ideas of elements that would make a great MMO in your opinion, they can be from other games or off the top of your head.
1) True battle of good and evil with the ability of switching sides (1 time only) I know EQ2 did this.
I like this because I may want to play as a dark elf, but why do I have to be evil to do so? Or perhaps as you build your character you are given a series of questions and scenarios, how you answer would determine what side you belong.
Also I will throw into this part that I want interesting races, yes put in the typical elf human dwarf etc. But I loved how Shadowbane added some very non standard races to play. I want choices and alot of customization not just at creation, your character SHOULD stand out at every part of the game.
2) The world changes around you sometimes for the worst. (I know it would take a team to keep this going)
I'm not just talking about major events but also small occurences. Seasons that actually change, dynamic weather, large scale dynamic events. What if in a game the weather changes and there in the coding is the small possibility that a hurricane might form. That hurricane then goes over X spot on the map and wipes out a bridge, thus a quest is formed, help rebuild the bridge.
The quest from this could have multiple paths such as crafters gain knowledge to help in their trade from doing crafting on the bridge. Non-crafters might be gathering materials or chopping trees for wood or even protecting workers, but are rewarded with an increase to their stats.
3) I Remeber this from Daggerfall
I would love to see things such as if you are fighting werewolves or vampires that there is a chance from the creatures special attack to be infected. Then you would have X amount of time to find a cure (timer based, but not just in-game time) If you follow the branching path of the quest you find a cure. If not you are now cursed and perhaps even now made to goto the evil side.
4) True exploration
I want there to be hidden out of the way areas that people stumble upon (Yes eventually everyone would learn these) perhaps a small cemetary in an abandoned town, finding it could be triggered or skill based (think putting points in search) You find that while searching a mausoleum you come across an old stair leading under into an elaborate cave system. Quest is then triggered such as crazy mage has made his home here and is creating zombies that have been inhabiting the area.
5) CRAFTING CRAFTING CRAFTING
I want a true crafting component, with discovery of rare components or rare items. A system where you will create the hilt of a sword, the pommel and the blade. I want there to be choices on how that weapon looks, a system where there are 25+ different blades. I would like to see an enchanter who you take your self made sword to and ask (hopefully it's a friend who will do it for you) to enchant it. Enchantments would add not only stats to the weapon but also particle effects, but even further into it there will be discovery. Your friend the enchanter decides to experiment on the blade, knowing using an ice core and a fire core makes a cold flame weapon, but subs the ice core with mystic water. He has now discovered liquid fire, the particle effect is a coll lava dripping looking sword. Also I want rare recipes perhaps hidden in that tomb you disturbed, now you may be the only person on your server to have this...you are popular until the next big cool recipe is discovered.
6) not being locked into set roles
If you want to be a mage you study magic, want to be a warrior pick up a sword and put on that armor. I don't like having to pick a class and then play it until X level to learn I don't really like it. If I want to be a battle mage, then I can study those skills.
Maybe not perfect but please add your own ideas.
