So, here’s something awesome that I’ve been hoping for in WoW.

A quest link in trade channel

That is, indeed, a chat channel link to a quest. Just shift-click a quest in your log and it’ll link it into any channel where you can share an item link – so, trade, whisper, /say, and probably guild/party/raidchat too (though I haven’t tried linking them there yet).

This inspired me to check:

A spell link in whisper

You can also shift-click a spell or ability in your spellbook to link it into the same channels.

I really hope this makes it into Live and it’s not just a weird PTR bug. Everquest 2 allowed this from launch – back in late 2004 – and I’ve missed it on WoW on a regular basis ever since then.

I’m sure you can all see how useful it’d be…

Wow, that is as unexpected as it is awesome! Hopefully it makes it into the 2.4 patch that gets rolled out to live servers.

I know :) Really happy about that, and hoping it stays in – a really great change.
