Blog Azeroth Shared Topic: What spell would you most want?


Each week, Blog Azeroth hosts a Shared Topic for bloggers to answer on their own blogs and then link to in the forum. This week, Arvash from The Crimson Hammer asks:
In the new Mist of Pandaria expansion, Druids will be getting a new spell called Symbiosis, which will allow them to "trade" a spell with another player, based on the player's class and combat role and the Druid's specialization.

So my question is, if you could have any spell you want from any other class, current spells or new ones in MoP, what would it be? How would you work it into your rotation, gameplay, etc.?
Arvash gives a good overview of Symbiosis, but here are some details for those who don't already know:
  • The druid doesn't get to choose which spell to receive or trade.
  • The Symbiosis recipient also doesn't get to choose the spells.
  • You can't use it on enemy players or any NPCs -- just one member of the party or raid.
  • Wowhead has more details and the spells that get traded.

So what spell do I most want? Zen Flight. It's a minor monk glyph that can't be used in combat, does not scale with riding skill, and only works outdoors. Do I care? No. I want it on all my characters. I want to peruse the Auction House while floating. I want to look zen-like while I chat. I want to be at peace with the World of Warcraft universe.

Is borrowed enlightenment cheating? Yes. Again, I don't care. I'd give up any spell the monk wanted just so I could do it. I also want to use it while fishing. It seems like a natural combination.

I'll be making a pandaren monk the moment Mists of Pandaria is released and I'm taking her all the way to 90. I'm not doing it just for Zen Flight of course, but I'll be using it as much as I can.

What spell do you want the most and for which character? Answer on your blog and link it here and/or on Blog Azeroth. Or just leave your answer in the comments.
