Breakfast Topic: What parts of the game are most underappreciated?

This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the Aol guest writer program that brings your words to WoW Insider's pages.

Many things in the World of Warcraft go unappreciated by the community as a whole. In such a large game and such an extensive world, it is easy to overlook small details without which the game would be much more difficult and frustrating or just less pleasant to play.

The first thing that comes to my mind that is underappreciated in WoW is the music and sound effects. I know so many people who play with their sound down, and while I can understand muting my sound for a few quests or specific zones or while fighting certain monsters, I cannot believe that so many people play this game completely muted and listening to their own "thrash metal" or whatever it is the kids are listening to these days.

I've been playing a priest lately. I've been doing the Tol Barad dailies every day, and I am absolutely loving the Jedi mind trick ability Mind Soothe. Yet I know that 90% of priests out there don't even have it on their action bar ... and I'm sure some have never even heard of it. Mind Soothe is like a lesser but group-wide stealth! You can skip entire trash pulls in heroics with it, or just run past that certain monster that you don't wish to fight.

With all your love of the game, what aspect of it do you love that you think not enough other people appreciate? Share your thoughts, and show some appreciation for the little things that Blizzard's team has put hard work into!
