Added service: Chromies best friend
If we can talk to them via ReadID chat, we should be able to use the same instances too.
For an added 2.49$ a month, players willl also be able to use Chromies special abilities ( http://www.wowhead.com/spell=35483/human-illusion) to be transformed into a compatible faction/race as the RealID friend who invited.
Example time: I have 3 realID friends, they all play horde, and they play on two different servers. Thats a grand total of 3 servers and two factions. And We would love to be able to play together. But we all have a base of online friends that we prefer to guild with. (For me, being a dwarf is a big thing, I'd rather not not be a dwarf. For one of the others, he has a pvp partner he wouldn't want to leave ect ect)
So if readID friend undead-priest invites me for a dungeon run, I'd be in queue with him as horde on his normal realmgroup. When we enter the dungeon, I'd be my chosen corresponding race/class combo (so no blood-elf druids).
Any faction specific reputation gain, would be given to the corresponding faction.
The reasoning behind
In the past, we have all rerolled, server transfered and various other things, to be able to play together when our schedules did fit each-other. However different priorities always led to a split. And with the risk falling straight into Larisas trap, of "if it is important for me, it must be important for everyone else", I do not think we are alone in wanting this.
I've even set a price, that i'd be willing to pay for this service that pretty much would not cost blizzard anything to run (granted I know diddly about running an mmo, but if crossserver instances, bg's and chat can be added, running dungeons together shoulnd't be a huge next step.
Maybe you should be granted a special emblem to put on your shirts, or a special tabard or pet for being special BFF with Chromie, I'll let the smart boys sort that out :)
So what do you think of this? I'm very curious to know.
