Reading WoWinsider earlier whilst playing around with screenshots, the answer to this question came to me in a flash of inspiration.
If you could add any one thing to your Garrison that would make it truly feel like “home” to your character, what would it be?
I want customizable options, mounts displayed in the stables, my own four poster bed and a kennel with a little bowl outside sure but I’d sacrifice all that for the ability to hang up screenshots of friends and guildmates in my own private place. The walls of my house are hung with pictures of those I love (and those I happen to share a blood tie with). There is Mr Harpy holding a crocodile and my Mother aged 5 hanging out a beach with attitude. There is me at my cousin’s christening clutching the baby like he’s my newest doll side by side with assorted friends and family. On my phone I have my niece dressed up as a Disney Princess and my colleagues drunkenly doing the conga. We have album after album of photographs because they hold locked with their inks so many precious memories so why can’t that be recreated in our garrisons.
I could understand Blizzard not necessarily wanting to upload all 10 000 ish of my screenshots so there would have to be a limit or possibly the addition of a small camera into the game interface which would allow you to take shots like this one:
Possibly it would only be available at certain times, i.e. after boss kills or when you get an achievement although that might limit your ability to take shots of friends. I would prefer the ability to upload edited shots to a certain size but I suspect some experimenting would have to be done.
Basically I want personal pictures of my friends, guild-mates, pets and mounts to make my garrison feel like home as opposed to some functional building that I’ll abandon half way through the expansion when the novelty wears off and I get tired of living in a box.
(No I’m not demanding or anything).
