There need to be small money sinks for the majority of players in addition to repair costs and transmogrification. I agree that it's irritating and stupid but that's the point. It's supposed to be irritating and stupid.
My only problem with them is that they're pretty much of the teeny-tiny text at the bottom of the advertisement that nullifies some of the awesomeness that was being promoted.
"You can change your talents on the fly!" Then don't require a reagent for it.
My opinions: 5.0 was the golden age of content, the ability prune barely did anything, and 6.2 is actually an enjoyable timesink.
don't remove them just have them stack to 100 or 200
I don't see the point in keeping them. They don't cost much, but take up bag space and it's easy to run out of tomes. They are just a (minor) hassle and might as well be removed.
I agree that they should be removed. No real reason for them other than people to say "crap, I forgot to grab some - anyone got extra?".
I need the ability to reforge on the fly. I paid 120k gold or whatever for this massive yak, and all the instances are a mile long with no teleports and no alternate exits, and you can't mount anywhere.
Jeeves ftw. It's why I have ENG. Jeeves has everything but food, but I can use him to access my bank and get food out. Just can't live without Jeeves
