The Daily Grind: What ‘lost’ content from your favorite MMO do you wish would be restored?


A while back, YouTuber Wooden Potatoes did a video invoking the Guild Wars 2 graveyard” of lost profession skills. I… love stuff like this, and the Guild Wars franchise in particular is full of ’em because of just how much Utopia content managed to make it topside before it was scuttled in favor of Eye of the North. Something about the “what could’ve been” really appeals to me.

For example, in my home MMO of Star Wars Galaxies, there have long been stories about the separate industrialist and farm-type professions that didn’t make the cut for launch. Some of the products of those skills did make it into the game, but I would’ve loved to see them more fully developed. And plenty of other MMOs have stories about whole classes and continents that were cut, some to be added in for expansions, others to be lost entirely. And that’s without even mentioning content that did make it into an MMO but was then cut later during streamlining or (RIP, Ultima Online’s original Ocllo aka New Haven).

What “lost” content from your favorite MMO do you wish would be restored?
