I'm sorry but this is such a bad take. "It's been like this forever" isn't a good enough reason to keep it that way.
In 2001 I might have agreed with you, but I also had unlimited free time to pour into the game. But as I have acquired the annoying parts of aging called responsibilities I find my free time is much more valuable. I don't think it's wrong of me to think that the game should better respect not just my time but also the time of everyone else who has also grown with the game.
Again, this doesn't suddenly make you able to rest on a whim. It's a quality of life change to smooth out some of the more oocly annoying aspects of the game.
I also don't like to be accused of metagaming. The same seven spells can get you and your party through 99.99% of the content on the server. But if I suddenly need a different selection of spells for RP reasons, such as a non-combat investigation into some plot this is where it gets to be the most annoying. This is what most frequently happens when I say that a situation has changed. It's not necessarily that I'm going from one quest to another, it's that the tone of what you intend to do has shifted entirely. Smoothing out that transition a bit helps everyone, not just the caster.
