WoW Equipment Manager Delay

The World of Warcraft Forums announce the promised Equipment Manager will not be included in the upcoming version 3.1 content update for Blizzard's MMORPG as had been planned (thanks Eurogamer). Word is:
In order to ensure that this feature meets our standard of quality, we will be taking some extra time with the Equipment Manager and it will instead be released some time after patch 3.1. We understand that this feature is a widely anticipated addition and apologize for this minor delay.

Funny story, there have been 3rd party mods doing equipment since 3 months after release very well...

Figures the blizz dev's couldn't take a 4 year old idea and code it to work... X D

It works just fine on PTR, there is a logical problem with socketed Dragon's Eye though hence the delay. Every ItemRack-style mod has the same problem, there is no "fix" really, Blizzard has to do something on the backend to solve the problem. Basically you can't equip more than three dragon's eyes in your equipment at the same time but equipment mods can't queue the request to put the items on since the error stops the function.

But yes in general Blizzard is pretty slow at updating the game's base UI.

Widely anticipated - No, not really. I'm fine with using Outfitter, but thanks.

Minor delay - Only Blizzard can call 4 years a minor delay

Ahh, hadn't heard about the Dragon Eye issue, but that makes a lot of sense. It's very practical for Blizzard to be cautious with changes to the base UI, I don't hold anything against them for that.

The base UI lets you load the game about ten times faster than with mods, so it makes sense for them not to incorporate everything under the sun. WoW is all about accessibility in every way and that includes technical requirements.

Widely anticipated - No, not really. I'm fine with using Outfitter, but thanks.

It integrates perfectly with dual-specs which is why it's nice. It's a basic but functional version of ItemRack/Outfitter.

The more I hear about WoW, the more I view it as digital Barbie dolls for boys.

Then I guess it would actually help to PLAY it before making judgments against it?

That's like half the games on the market right now.

So instead of pressing one button I'll need to continue pressing two (respec + outfitter). Oh well...

Just because I don't own it doesn't mean I haven't played it. I know people who live in the game, and the more they talk about it, the more I'm convinced that they're playing dress-up with digital dollies. The fact that they get so defensive when I make jokes about it tells me that I'm right on the mark.

You're absolute right Free Mumra. No, really. Don't bother playing it. You'll be very disappointed.

I'm not getting defensive, I'm just saying that's like half the games on the market right now. You could call GTA4 a barbie game with driving. Fun doesn't care about lame.

Agreed. I have too many people on my server...if a few hundred more could transfer or deactivate, that would be super!

Thanks!

Or you're so far off your rocker you've stunned them. The two reactions are often confused by the rocker-less.

I never said that you didn't OWN it Free Mumra, I said it would help if you PLAYED it.

@nin, I have no fucking clue, all these new idiots confuzzle me.
