How could we respectfully celebrate Lunar Festival without night? :c
You need to carry a torch at night or your visible range of enemies was lowered if i recalled.
As for the night cycle, it got removed turning wotlk I think, Northrend kinda has the same lighting issue. IT was removed because players only able to play at night complained that it strained their eyes. There was a very old blue post about it, but i wouldn't even begin to know how to search for it. Glad to see it might come back though, I've missed it ever since.
all i know is if its implemented again im never going back to duskwood....
Ya, it bugs me too. You have to look up to the sky to tell it's "nighttime" in that game but what do you expect from a game that always feels the need to dumbs everything down to the level of the dumbest players (and god knows that's pretty dumb).
I believe they did it before and people who played WoW at night complained they couldn't see anything so they reverted it.
Here's a 26 page official wow forum thread on the subject complete with blue response and screenshots of day vs night in the old days compared to now:
Sounds like they are considering "bringing back the night".
The response from the blue poster :
"Wow! Alright alright, we hear you. This seems almost like a unanimous opinion on this thread…
We’ll let the devs know how you feel about this "
Comaprisons of Night time in Vanilla compared to now. (left = Vanilla. right = Now):
All the atmosphere has been drained from the night. There is very little distinction between night and day now.
The following screenshots are from someone who managed to tweak the lighting effects that already exist in the game:
Personally I think these are too dark and although they have a lot of atmosphere I think it would actually make playing difficult... but there is a balance between these screenshots and what we have now that could "bring back the night" and the atmosphere without making the game unplayable at those late hours.
Slightly off topic but I also preferred the old weather (especially rain storms) that we used to have.

No man can walk out on his own story

It was awesome the time when it was truly dark. Also if you pulled an allnighter.... you suddenly saw that it was getting morning - the light was right, the birds were tjirping.
Now if they could also add weather effects that had an effect on your character aswell... Like strong winds making your flying mount slower if you are flying against the wind... or faster if you fly with the wind... Shouldn't be that noticable much... just a few % like 20% or something. So you do "feel" it.
Mudpools... from the rain. And snow that would actually lay there for atleast 10/15 after it stopped snowing.
