We all have our favorite in-game items, be it our uber T10 gear, our Zulian Tiger mount or our Diamond-Tipped Cane. But sometimes, we can't find what we want in game. We know what it is, search around for it, check the websites, but nothing quite fits the description. All our research leads back to the same sad conclusion: what we want simply doesn't exist in Azeroth. We resign ourselves to move on without it and harbor the hope it will appear in the next patch or expansion.
What do I want in Cataclysm? I just want a pizza.
I don't even care about the toppings. It can be thin crust, cheese-only, out of the grocer's freezer for all I care. Maybe my Chicago upbringing is coloring my perception here, but I just think that in such a vivid, exciting world with so much to offer, it is inexcusable that the most universally consumed dish in western civilization is not represented anywhere. I have scrolled through all 466 items listed in Wowhead's Food & Drinks category, searching for anything that might meet the bare minimum criteria of what in my mind constitutes pizza, but for naught. We have defeated Old Gods, dragon aspects, even the Lich King ... But not one of us has ever even had a slice of pepperoni and cheese.
I, for one, lament this glaring dietary omission in our otherwise amazing world. Whether it's crafted with our own cooking skill or an Innkeeper's Special, enough to feed the raid (à la Fish Feast) or by the slice, we just need to see it somewhere. C'mon, Blizzard. Let us have our pie.
Is there something you think absolutely should be in game somewhere, but currently isn't? Something whose absence, to you, just seems to stick out like a sore thumb? Something that may seem trivial to others, but would put an all-day smile on your face if it appeared in Cataclysm?
