@Pewter @mistressnonny It's a little out of the way. I didn't actually realize that it was for setting away/invisible modes until someone pointed it out to me -- my eyes just skimmed right past the little green box! I think they could definitely make it a little more obvious, but, it's nice that it's there at all.

I didn't see you mention it but in the friends list you can actually mark yourself as invisible. It's the drop-down with the green box. I haven't tried it so I don't know how well it works, but it's at least something.
There are definitely a lot of little things, like the guild notes and the "person has come online" notification. I suspect those will be down the line, and they're at least relatively simple things to code. I'm not sure why they weren't in for launch though when so many other major things were but overall, I'm really enjoying the game.
Good gods, this. I played a warlock back in vanilla. I was brought as a freshly dinged 60 in crap gear because my guild's raid group needed another lock for fearing on the first boss in BWL. I was literally the only lock that handed out healthstones to the raid. I was the only one that regularly checked in for soulstones. I also did more dps than half of the warlocks that were in purples, and I had greens. Unsurprisingly, we never made it past Vael and just returned to farming Ony and MC.
I loved vanilla. In part, all of this, guilds and raiding, were new to me and I loved them. I loved being part of something, and succeeding where we did. I was with above raid group when we downed said boss for the first time and it was exhilarating. But there is a lot that I DON'T miss, and I really think the people that are crying that vanilla was better are looking through nostalgia glasses.
