10 Interface Improvements Blizzard Should Add To World Of Warcraft

Ten Interface Improvements Blizzard Should Add To World of Warcraft

Warlords of Draenor's upcoming patch will have more interface improvements than usual. Just to name a few: A tab for account-bound "Heirloom" items, a selfie camera toy and Twitter integration. But there are still so many cool ideas and add-ons out there that are not yet part of the game. Bellular collected 10 of them.

Here's a breakdown of all the things mentioned in the video above. Some of them are floating around on forums for a while now as general ideas, some of them exist already as add-ons, but all would be great updates to WoW's user interface.

  1. Improved "Tab targeting" with the ability to customise monster targeting.
  2. An enhanced guild tab so you don't have to check your guild's website at all.
  3. A tab for Tabards, similar to the Toy Box.
  4. Revamped transmogrification.
  5. Bank tabs, similar to Guild Wars 2.
  6. An achievement search function.
  7. An improved world map showing all locations and dungeons.
  8. A completed dungeon journal.
  9. Improved and faster Garrison animations.
  10. The ability to open all of our mail simultaneously.

Can't agree more with number 9.

    I haven't played WoW for a while, but I always wondered why they simply didn't integrate certain key mods to the game.

    I am not sure about now, but things like Threat Meters, Deadly Boss Mods and the like were essential to raiding.
    I don't even think certain raids would be do able without the DBM addon for a group.

    I like enhanced tab targeting a lot, but I think one that should be added is based on target marked. Usually in raids and instances the tank will mark a skull for first kill, so if I tab to target, it should either target tanks target or target with skull.
    I agree with all of the above, except for say the ability to open all mail simultaneously, since you can get addons for that sort of thing.
    I think 1 of the biggest things that should be done, is a shared bank tab for all of your characters to use, like in Diablo 3 for crafting mats etc. Even soulbound items, should be account bound so you can use them all across your characters. For example i get the boxes from my garrison and I occasionally get gears or cloth, but I can't use them, so I end up selling them. Would be great to store them somewhere for use. Then create a level 1 character and use it as a bank selling toon rather than a guild bank toon and have to log and relog and relog just to send items between characters.
    Also even using gold that is tied to all characters like in Diablo 3, then I never have to send items to anyone any more.

    Half that stuff is already in the works. Ya'll should be reading the mmo-champion.com blue tracker.

    I recently quit warcraft as a protest against blizzards total disregard for the community concerns before diablo3 season2 kicked off. Tho some of these are valuable QoL improvements.. no amount of ui tweeking on warcraft will convince me to reconsider.

    There's an addon that can speed up the garrison missions.
