Star Wars (SWG) and Star Trek (STO) ships all in space blasting at each other...

*does Homer-Simpson-esque drool*

As for the ground, I'd love to see a few EQ 1 and 2 classes run around in Azeroth, namely the ShadowKnight and Necro to beef up the "evil" classes beyond warlock and deathknight.

Like many other commentors, I really want to shop the whole cafeteria line for my meal of MMO:

From WoW:
- the large, varied, and mostly seamless world
- the terrific responsiveness of the characters in play
- the excellent freedom of movement

From Champions Online:
- the excellent character customization
- the great (fun!) powers and abilities
- the cherry-picking of powers to build your own "class"
- the character-naming system that forever eliminates the problem of finding that someone has already taken your favorite name

From LOTRO:
- the incredible attention to detail in everything
- the beautiful and engaging world; the verisimilitude; the strong sense of place
- the numerous, varied, rich and copious questlines
- Legendary items
- the care and craftsmanship that is devoted to updating and improving every part of the game all the time, not just in major expansions, but continuously through the year in small patches that add to and rework questlines and hubs throughout the whole game, including the starting areas

From Guild Wars:
- henchmen and heroes (companions that can fill out parties when players are scarce)
- the rich, varied, competitive, and opt-in PVP
- Guild houses and PVP battles in them
- the opt-out grinding

From WAR:
- keep and city sieges; PVP objectives worth fighting over
- Greenskins!
- numerous nice PVP details (example: characters in a PVP fight can't walk through each other, which makes it possible for tanks to actually hold positions, which in turn makes entire families of tactics possible that otherwise aren't)
- PVP forts that are actually forts, and that must be taken by siege, instead of "forts" that are just arbitrary indefensible walls with zillions of gaping holes in them

I mean come on Blizzard. Give me bards already.

Bounty Hunter in WoW WITH the old Bounty-hunt system. Gank a player that's grey to you, you get put on the BH terminals. The more you do it, the more your death is worth.

My god that would be awesome on PvP servers.

Give me Everquest 2's classes (and races), but beef up their individuality, some. As I understand it many of the classes budded off of an initial four choices, so they share many abilities between them. Classes that are too similar are redundant.

The MMO I'd want to put them in doesn't exist yet. Give me a really well thought out backstory and world that manages to pull in and immerse you, (the MMO with the best I've played so far is Final Fantasy XI, but I don't see myself ever playing it again, unfortunately) that takes itself seriously longer than ten seconds (ie, what World of Warcraft can't do), has a housing system of some sort, EQ2's crafting, and gameplay like the upcoming MMO TERA.

Crafting from SWG
Taming as in UO alt Hunter in WoW
Skill system as in DFO/UO/SWGpreNGE
realm versus realm type as in Warhammer or DaoC

errr, isn't that roughly what AC2 was? (never played it unfortunately).

Graphics as in AoC perhaps.

First I would start with grabbing FFXI's job/subjob - one character system.

Then I would grab all classes from Vanguard and throw them into WoW or vice versa. THAT would be awesome. Because then I could play with tons of job/subjob combos.

I would also take the classes from LOTRO and throw them into Vanguard. That could be interesting.

I almost said EQ2, but I find those classes so cliche and boring, or maybe that's the combat in EQ2? either way, it fails yet comes so close to not.

Fixer from AO + Mesmer from Guild Wars. I would play that class until I die.

If I could play a WoW rogue in every MMO, I would do it. Alwyas. I freaking love that class. I just dont like WoW anymore, which is why I quit. PRobably ahs to do with the fact that playing the class for so many years has made it that I no longer need to think about the mechanics, everything is now down to almost muscle memory, but again, I havent enjoyed the endgame in WoW for a very long time, so as much as I love playing my Rogue, I jsut cant do it anymore.

Kinda like having a great car and nowhere to drive it.

DAoC's theurgist in WoW (as it's what I'm playing now). A small army of short-lived, fire-and-forget pets? Sign me up! Don't know why no other game has thought to recreate it as a core mechanic.

Try some of column A, try ALLLLL of column B!

Shadowknight -> AoC sounds really good.

Galaxy class -> EVE also sounds fun

DAoC Thane -> EQ2 I'd love to do myself

and finally

I'd love to pit every Necromancer class ever made against each other in a battle royale. Or just anyone who can muck about with the undead.
