Easier xp/faster leveling never really was addressed. Next please.
Inconveniences generally amount to stupid or outmoded coding to "solve" a problem or induce someone to have to do something. I find it inconvenient that I have to wait for a spell to finish before casting another. It would be far easier to be able to stack spells and come back after a minute of spelling up(or you could shorten every spell in the game by a few *'s... hint hint). Inconveniences to me are things that take time for no reason. Walking somewhere takes time because travel takes time. Practicing skills takes time because they can't(or won't) figure out a better way to code it(LOLZ). Memming takes time because if you could get a zone done in less than 2 hours people would bitch faster about uptimes of more than a day.
If you break down the amount of time it takes to play the game you realize that a lot of the game is simply waiting around. If I wanted to do that I could go sit in a bar. Until that simple fact is addressed I don't see how the game is going to be fun no matter what you add.
Immersion only works if you're constantly immersed. If my death mem allows me to get up, take a dump, mix a drink, call my friend to tell him I'm death memming, clean out my car and wax my legs before I'm done, there's a serious problem with immersion.
If you want numbers, fine. Just don't force them on me.
