With a little prodding from a great person, I’m going to toss out two ideas concerning in game mail.
Ok, so the mail system has come a long way, from the age of Classic to where we are today with instantaneous mail sent through our account to any of our characters, to even instant mail between members of the same guild. And believe me, I am grateful for the improvements we have. But I think we can do better.
The first suggestion is something I have mentioned many times in the past when I’ve blogged ideas for things I would love to see added into the game. With the ever increasing encouragement for people to play Alts, it would be great to be able to see on the character load screen that,
How many of us have sent something through the mail to an alt we play every so often, and then a month later, it pops back up in the mail system as undelivered. I’m sure it’s happened at least once to a great deal of people, and for those Auction House Barrons of Industry, probably on many occasions trying to recall which auction house mules might have unsold items sitting in the mail, waiting to be listed once again. So that was my first idea.
Now for the more shooting for the stars idea.
So during Legion, we had the opportunity to earn “the Postmaster”, and if a certain great person on Twitter does not use this title all the time I will be upset they didn’t think of it, cough @Postsemreh cough. We got as a reward Katy Stampwhistle, allowing us to summon her once an hour to get our mail. Again, this was a great feature added, I’ve used her services many times, even a few when there was a mailbox a short distance away. But what more could we do. My idea would be to introduce a new mail carrier, Mac Feely, a nod to Mr. McFeely who delivered the mail for Mr. Rogers, but he would be an Inter-dimensional Mail Carrier that would allow you to, once every two hours, summon him to get the mail from all the characters on your account. By manipulating Inter-dimensional forces he can summon a mail portal for you. No more switching through 8-10 or more characters to see who has what in the mail. Obviously there should be a set of tasks to find him, but please not something insane involving several hours of puzzles. I would think visiting every capital city and places like Shattrath, The Vale, New Dalaran, and the current in Battle for Azeroth, to locate a special mailbox that is relatively simple to find, and once complete have him appear to you to award you an Inter-dimensional Stamp Toy that will allow you to summon him again.
So those are my two ideas. Like and share if you are inclined and thank you for reading.
