The Daily Grind: What MMO conceits would you port into real life?

Guild Wars 2

This morning’s Daily Grind is a fun one straight from Kickstarter donor Wesley Hendriks. Wesley proposes we all ponder the following question:

If you could choose 3 things from your favorite MMO to be in your real life, what would it be and why?

I want mark and recall or gate spells or map teleporting first thing. FIRST THING. I’d never have to sit in traffic ever again. Following that, I want the Image Designer profession so someone can just click click click and make me look like Neo give me awesome hair that never needs touch-ups after I kill a whole bunch of rats with a greatsword. And I want playing the auction hall and making sick piles of gold to be as easy and lucrative as in video games.

Shoot, I think I used up all my wishes and never got around to “flying” or “invisibility” or “spaceships” or “pocket horses” or “a job where I deliver pies to hobbits.” And what about cloning and immortality? What about costume particle effects? Darnit. This is harder than it sounds. How about you folks? What MMO conceits would you port into real life?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
