How about this...submarines. There could be a whole level below the wind lanes where strange creatures and characters dwell. You would need a submersible to get down there. For those who couldn't acquire subs because of level, cost or whatever, you could have diving gear so an individual could get down there. And yes...I know I'm crazy.
How about giving us the ability to change stats on items that we find. Thus, if there are lots of strength but we want items with will, have an NPC who can adjust one stat for another. Thus, we can tailor the items found to our characters.
Has anyone besides me been wanting to see an upgrade for the Presidio companions? Not upgrade in like, epic talents or anything but in special powers. I really like them but they need powers, and our starting companions (Subodai, Kobe, Kan Po, and the other 2) need to catch up to the other powerful companions too. Like Bonnie, Toro, Zeena, Ratbeard, the KrakenSkulls companions, and now the new class companions that I've seen in the test realm. I think the starter companions and the Presidio companions need an upgrade. Anyone else feel the same way?
