    WoW's best post launch feature addition?

    Of all the features added to WoW since it launched, which do you rate the highest?

    For me personally it's the Dungeon Finder/Raid Finder tool. I can't even begin to imagine how we used to form groups back in the old days via the chat channels. The whole 'LF 1 DPS UBRS' type spamming until someone whispered you and the group was formed. And then waiting for the person to arrive at the dungeon. They of course had to be on your server too.

    Now you just queue, wait and viola. In some ways it's a shame you don't even have to talk to the other people now but ultimately I think it's a huge feature that changed the game for the better. If my memory serves me right it wasn't implemented until Wrath yet it feels like it's been around forever.

    So bravo Blizz for that.

    Arena

    Before that, PvPers had nothing to do.

    Arena for sure.

    Other than that I would have to say either LFR or Brawler's Guild.

    For me it was weather and dynamic shadows and water. I can only imagine how amazing they would have been had they been added to WOW before I'd burned out the first time. Even just weather.

    The cross-realm functions. An absolute miracle for low-pop servers.

    Transmogging was most likely the addition I looked most forward to

    is that why BG's were full the world was full of PVP raids and ppl had fun and not just achievement whoring in capitals ? Arena is the biggest shit to happen to wow ...

    OT: Crossrealm... oh the ganking... I love it... it feels like I'm in a living world again ... staying in stormgarde on my lvl 30 rogue and owning hordes is so much fun

    Oh man I forgot about that. I've been hoarding items going back 8 years because I knew Blizz might one day add something. I just wish I saved more, but every expansion brought a need to organize and delete what I could.

    Reforging.
    Gearing before it was a bitch, and sometimes you just had to pass on a piece because all of the hit was useless/you needed the extra hit on the inferior piece.
    I also think that LFG is kind of a good one, but in some cases I miss the old system so I'll mark it as my number 2.

    I know it's decried from time to time for taking away from the "social interaction" of the game but Looking For Raid was a godsend for me; used to loathe sitting around and waiting for everyone to show up, buff up, make consumables, etc. and adhering to a set schedule for plowing through content.

    Should they have not been added, I would have stopped playing long ago.

    If you think LFR is a substitute of raiding (not to mention, heroic raiding), then you're doing something wrong...

    Was going to say LFG/LFR, but going to go with reforge. Gear was a bitch to manage before hand. Having to use older raid gear just because it had something like hit/exp on it sucked.
