    I love how the add a Toy Box and then classify nearly nothing as toys

    Seriously, I got so many vanity items from Tanaan that should have been Toys but just aren't. So I threw away every single one of them.
    What exactly is the idea behind the Toy Box? I don't get it. It seems like such a great concept but half the team doesn't seem to understand what it's for, so they just keep adding more and more usable items that are not classified as toys.
    I'd like to keep the random on use items that disguise you as an Arakkoa or any other stuff that can be used for vanity stuff. But I don't have the space for it. Why the hell can't it just be put into my Toy Box?

    They will be in the upcoming mini patch. The answer to the question of "Why isn't this a toy?" is "mistake."

    Just stick them in void storage or your bank while you wait, or get them on alts for storage until they become toys.

    Well..we are getting bigger bags, so naturally those have to sell. Gotta add more shit.

    What annoys me honestly are the tons of bait, fish and flesh. And herbs...guess I should be grateful we only have two kinds of ore.

    Yeah, my bags were never fuller and tht at a time when my chars also have the biggest bags.

    Some things like the skull of the mad chief or the Blood orb can't be classified as toys because they affect gameplay, though I don't see how that would stop them from sticking them in the toy box with the same cooldown, it's all about inventory space anyway...

    No, a LOT of the time the answer is "it offers utility, so we won't make it a toy"

    What I don't get is how that prevents them from adding them to the ToyBox. It's not like I won't get Aviana's Feather on my lvl100 alts. If an item is 'too convenient', I'll get it anyway. If it's not, then who the hell cares if alts have access to it. Blizzard could make such items require lvl100, or reputation, or completion of a quest as a requirement to use, like they already do with tons of other toys.

    Because Blizzard can never just give you something that is fun. There's always a catch to it. Just like all this bullshit with these transformation items with 10 min durations and 2 hour long cooldowns. God forbid people have fun with something.

    You're right, of course, and several of the on-use items are mislabeled and will become toys in a future update.

    However, another thing to consider is that, while on-use items take up bag slots, toy box items take up hotkey slots. You also always have access to your toybox, whereas on-use items have to be placed in your bag ahead of time, which requires you to make "either or" choices about taking them with you for their utility, or keeping them in storage for later use.

    Where is that Toy Boy added ? I think you're watching too much "mistress porn" mate.

    Like wtf?
    Face your Demons, befriend them, listen to their needs and feed them regularly in times when you and your closest ones get afflicted the least. No one likes a hungry demon on the loose.
