Here are a few time-based suggestions. All of them should be pretty trivial to bring to the game, and would and would add some nice convenience.


/clock - Display the current time. ("I can only play until 10:00. What time is it?")
/timer hh:mm - Egg-timer. It alerts you after the entered time expires. ("I've got 30 minutes to play.")
/stopwatch start|start|display - Implements a stopwatch, so that we can time events. ("How long does it really take to make one of those Syberus Shards?")
/alarm [set hh:mm]|reset - Alerts you when the entered time is reached. ("I need to go at 10:00.")

I like these ideas, I'd like to add in a switch for all of them to have the output show in the party/raid or just self. I don't think they'll get abused, and /ignore if it does.

I like the ideas. But, the actual time ones would need to deal with time zone issues. So they'd likely have to add a time zone choice to the options.

You cant put a clock or like me a cell phone by your pc? even with a headset i can see my phone light up, hear it ring, andit has all of these features besides the stopwatch one. Do we really want devs wasting their time on this? I don't.

/timer hh:mm - Egg-timer. It alerts you after the entered time expires. ("I've got 30 minutes to play.")


Aka, "I've got 4 minutes till the shrine resets for me guys."

I already use my G15 keyboard to do this for me myself, but would be nice to see in the game.
