Arenas still exist.
Bring the Player, not the Class.
10/25 man Lockouts.
Heroic Difficulty for both Dungeons and Raids.
Justice, Conquest and Valor Points.
Dailies for people that don't raid or like alternative forms of progression.
I can go on, but feel I have addressed this whine.
The first mmo game i ever played in very very olden days was City of Villains. The thing i really loved about this game in particular was the guild bases. I think this thing could work in wow, actually things they did in those bases apart from decoration and stuff is showing off feats of the guild. SW and ORG do thesame with marks like the heart of deathwing and stuff. With the personal phases like the farm i don't see technical issues either

Hmm I would like to see
-Dynamic events like in GW2 and Rift
-Real weather, seasons and day/night cycles.
-Minions and class stories like in SWTOR
-Player housing like LOTRO
-Fun and silly skills like instrument playing like LOTRO
-better customization (armor and character) like just about every other MMO
-Legacy system like SWTOR
-Open mob tagging for your faction, like just about every game.
-Player housing like Rift
-PvE in general like Rift. Reward you for every activity you do...let it be transferred to your alts, etc. Variety variety variety.
-Character customization like Tera.
-Build the leveling on a class basis, borrowing from many different games here.
-Armor dyes like GW2. I can't repeat this enough. This plus transmog lets you actually be what you want. Put in a new secondary profession to make the dyes or add them to inscription, idc.
Up to date textures and animations...although WoW animations are often superior to those of new mmorpgs, I'd like them to borrow the concept of new and up-to-date in Blizzard ways.
I'd also like it if they added the downscaling from GW2, but it should be optional.
The combat systems of new mmorpgs, the art styles, the world mechanics etc etc = stuff I would NOT want for WoW. I love WoW for what it is, otherwise I'd be playing the other mmo's.
MMOS I've tried/played a lot: Rift, GW2, SWTOR, Tera, Aion, DCUO, LOTRO.
MMO that I loved from the first time logged in and still to this date, flaws and all: World of Awesomecraft.
My beloved collection of mounts, currently 215 unique on my main.
Here's a few things I'd like to see from other MMOs:
- Dynamic events (Rift / GW2).
- Customizable UI (Rift / GW2)
- Account-wide bank (D3).
- Support specs (Rift). For example a holy dps priest with aoe healing (chloromancer-like), an off-tank warlock with specific pet, a paladin battle-healer, etc...
- LFG/LFR based a main stat (int, spi, agi, str) and no more on ilvl (Rift).
What I'd like to see:
- Having all the old content (MC, BWL, AQ, etc...) available as Heroic or players sent back to lvl60 via CoT.
- Guild housing with shelves and trophies about the guild accomplishments.
- Updated undead, orc, tauren, trolls, humans, gnomes, dwarves and night elves textures.
- Gear sets being colored depending the spec (firemage = red, frostmage = blue, etc...).
- Scenarios based on characters lore.
- A capital that can be attacked and held by a faction for a week (i.e.) with all you need (npc, portals, etc...) that you can obtain after a huge PvP fight (like Tol Barad).
I don't know if legacy would work. I'm not seeing an undead mage and tauren hunter in the same "family".

If it's not been said; Hooded Cloaks, like in LOTRO
a skill requirement.
Nah but seriously, wow is kinda dying... In my opinion, np if u like it. I just dont anymore.
The thing I'd like to see most would be Swtor's Legacy system, It was by far the most fun mechanic in Swtor.
Basically when you hit ~20/30 you'd get to give your characters a family name, which would be shared by all the characters on your account, NOTE: not your battlenet, just the single account.
You then get "Legacy Experience" and as your levels go up you unlock a variety of "Legacy Perks" such as increased experience, reputation and flight speed for ALL characters in that Legacy.
This would also be a great way to solve the Hierloom problem as the XP gain from Hierlooms would be tied to the Legacy, not the gear and thus would be accessible by any alt on that Legacy.
You also get some crossover of abilites. When you get each class to the cap you get one "Iconic" move, from that classes abilites, but on a very long CD.
using the Swtor moves as an example, when I got my Sith Assassin to level 50 I unlocked "Force Storm" a lightning based AoE on a (fairly hefty) 10 min CD for all my non sith Assassin characters.
Oh, also, add coloured loot sparkles, so you know if the corpses have anything worth looting on
