Default magic mirror speculation

Playa just sent out an email advising us (late) about the end-of-summer mushroom sale.

It also made mention of an update that will include a magic mirror.

Any guesses what the mirror will do? Peer in on other guilds? Allow for upgraded hair styles? make the arcane toilet look clean?

Its a magic 2 way mirror placed in your shower to "look for bots"

Oh, good. I've always wanted a bot, and never knew where to find one.

based on the teaser known as "item compare", it is a good guess, that the marketing name for this small element is "magic mirror".
--> I go for this, never expect too much is what you learn from history...

a more expecting guess: magic mirror = portal to a different place = high level content (survival dungeons (hopefully balanced), the proposed jungle adventure,... there were a lot of ideas that can be fulfilled with 1+ year to work on)

interesting. they posted on facebook something like "would you like to be able to change your name and look easier" a week or so ago. the response was wildly negative and now i can not even find it on their page. who knows but a mirror makes me think it will have something to do with how your character looks.

I must admit, too many characters look too similar, so increasing customizability would be a possibility. It would also fit with Playa's pattern of changing the superficial rather than improving game play.

To be honest this sounds like another "advancement" to the game that brings very little.

I will withhold judgement until it is released, but that would be my experience with playa. Soccerstar today is inferior to the game they released a year and a half ago. It's hard to imagine a new feature here will make things worse, but we'll just have to wait and see.

Ok so far verified:
Mirror IS NOT item compare

the 1st part of the update is released since approx. 2 hours in Germany:
- post bug fixed
- item compare in Options
- ... small things too unimportant

Positive:
Mainpart of the update is not released

Sad:
No announced date and content

Tried item compare.

Doesn't seem to work correctly when comparing an unarmed 5-epic with an armed 3-epic. There may be more but I'm at work and don't have time to mess...
