If I Were a Dev

What 5 unique concepts would you totally steal from other games?

JOE:

  1. SWTOR’s companion system
  2. WildStar’s instanced housing
  3. TSW’s ability wheel (just smaller)
  4. WoW’s roll-free group finder loot.
  5. WoW/TSW realm malleability

DREW:

  1. LOTRO’s mounted combat
  2. Naval combat from Assassin’s Creed IV
  3. Skill trees from SWTOR/WoW (I love hybrids)
  4. Banks from SWTOR
  5. Trial system in Archeage

CARLA:

  1. Fighting abilities from Ultima Online (drink potions while shooting bow, throwing explosion potions blowing up other explosion potions)
  2. LOTRO housing taxes payments a year in advance (and housing escrow which holds your stuff until you come back)
  3. Crafting from SWG (intricacy, detailed, go out and find iron in ground, take core samples, mine it, empty mining drill etc)
  4. SWG and UO NPC shop vendors that you set up to sell your stuff
  5. UO’s transportation system (recall runes, mark it in a book). Could mark it wherever you want.
