I know this may not seem like a huge deal to some, but for me this is a big deal. I look at the ability to sit in a chair as a symbol of how much the Dev team in a game is interested in both world immersion and roleplaying.
It is pretty much impossible to not respect the Wildstar Deva and their care and attention to RP details. They have addressed this in the past and explained technical difficulties very thoroughly, and honestly I did not expect to see this in game. And while I was disappointing, I always appreciated the level of communication and respect for the issue that others would blow off as trivial.
But then, they BLOW ME AWAY by figuring out how to add it to the game anyway.
