The Daily Grind: What’s your favorite piece of removed content in an MMO?

Come back, Zinc!

The default mode of operation for MMOs is to forever acquire more content because these games are patching and updating and that’s just the natural arc of events. But not everything lasts forever. Systems get removed. Abilities that prove redundant or awkward get trimmed. Limited-time events run out. Over time, some things get removed and things change just a little bit. You can’t have everything you love stay around forever, as it turns out (a fact that this year has been keenly eager to remind me at every opportunity).

Some of the stuff that’s removed is probably irrelevant to you, but odds are good that some of it was content that you liked. And now it’s gone, for better or for worse. So what’s your favorite piece of removed content in an MMO? What’s a quest or area or system or just your favorite thing that used to be in a live game but isn’t there any more, even if what replaced it may be better?

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!
