The Daily Grind: What’s your favorite toy ability in an MMO?


You know how annoying it is to have Demon Hunters around you constantly double jumping and gliding in World of Warcraft? I absolutely do because I am absolutely that person. I spam double jumps like they’re going out of style. I loved jumping and gliding around more than anything. (I use the past tense because holy eff I am not playing this game right now, but you knew that.) It was rarely useful in a practical context, but it was a fun toy a lot of the time, and that’s important.

Of course, every game has that for various characters. We all have abilities that don’t do a whole lot or are only occasionally useful, but they look neat or they do something fun or they just feel fun to press, so they stay close to our heart. So what’s your favorite toy ability in an MMO? What’s a skill or ability that has little to no practical use but you just find really fun?

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!
