The Neverending Story?
I enjoy Wednesday nights because it’s the night our guild takes off from raiding. It’s nice to get a break from all the chaos and preparations for 25-man raids. So on nights like these, I generally start farming or questing. And as I looked through my quest log, something hit me. At this point, I have no outstanding quests other than some quest chains that require dungeon content or a group of several people. This does not include quests for raids or daily quests.
When I started raiding 25-man, I hit a slump where I wouldn’t quest at all. I had completed half of Netherstorm and none of Shadowmoon Valley. then slowly but surely, Netherstorm was finally completed. Motivation for pushing through Shadowmoon Valley quests came from attunements for 25-man content, particularly to get the Champion of the Naaru title and the Black Temple attunement. It’s kind of crazy when you think about it. Burning Crusade was announced with “hundreds of new quests”. Has anyone ever really counted? Did I really complete the majority of those hundreds of quests?
The thing is, I enjoy plain old questing more than daily quests. What happens when the single driving reason that kept me playing early on is suddenly being taken away, catching me unprepared? I don’t want to lose interest in my hunter, but what would I do when I’ve run out of quests? Sit around in Shattrath on the LFG channel? That doesn’t sound too promising. I can’t bring myself to do dailies for another set of factions after getting exalted with the Shattered Sun Offensive. All that daily questing burnt me out I think.
I feel like not many people can say they’ve gotten to this point, at least on my server. I wish Blizzard implemented more new quests with each patch because the story should not end where the quests end.
