    Worst/Best Quest Ever

    In a game with thousands of quests, there must be one that was an absolute drag or another that made you laugh like a kid in a candy store. Take your pick.

    As for me

    Worst: City of Light
    Reason: Oh great, wandering around Shattrath for what feels like ever.

    Best: The Stoneplow series, ending with 'Savior of Stoneplow'
    Reason: Such a dramatic quest line that had me use my karate techniques I learnt earlier in the zone on a giant bug in order to save the village.

    Now it's your turn.

    Best - one of two come to mind
    1 - The AQ chain. Truly the most epic quest in the game to date
    2 - Linkens Quest, Another Run round the whole of the game doing crazy stuff chain.

    Worst
    BRD Jail Break! Every single time we got a group to go to BRD you would spend the better part of 30+ mins doing this, Only to have someone DC or leave once it was done.

    worst: yup i have to agree with the shattrath welcoming ''quest''

    Best: The old desolace quest chain which last quest was killing the bosses in SM(reward was great blue weapon for that lvl) oh and the onyxia attunement chain.
    tbh i loved all the old world quest chains.

    EDIT: lol almost forgot the BEST of them all: Rhok'delar (if u did it in vanilla)

    Green Hills of Stranglethorn, back in the day.

    Worst: The old Horde-side Onyxia attunement chain.
    Reason: Words cannot describe it.

    Best: Gnomebliteration
    Reason: Now don't get me wrong. There are people who really don't like gnomes. I am not one of those people. If I was Alliance I would most likely be playing a gnome. But this single quest, rolling around in a giant fireball, hurling insane gnomes into the distance or embedding them like a Katamari ball by the hundreds, was just this incredibly cathartic experience. The only one that comes close is the one in Krasarang where you wrestle a shark to death with your bare hands.

    I have to agree, Gnomebliteration was probably the highlight of the expansion for me.

    What's with all the hate about the Stranglethorn book? I found it quite easy honestly.

    I can't choose a worst, but my personal favorite (the best, I suppose) would have to be The Day That Deathwing Came.

    Because the randomness meant you basically had to find the right pages on the auction house. You couldn't farm them, and you could get multiples of the same pages.

    I did that quest on a dozen characters over the years, and never once did I incidentally finish the quest while grinding through the zone. Every time I would end up with like four page 7s, two page 3s, a page 12 and then a whole lot of missing ones.

    Worst: Couldn't really think of one off the top of my head, but the one you mentioned with the tour of Shattrath, I hated that one too >
    Reason: Same as yours really, really boring and no way to speed it up.

    Best: Nesingwary Safari in Nagrand
    Reason: It's the whole chain of quests rather than just the one. I like doing those as it was fun having to kill the three elites alone, especially when I was a noob. I also really liked Nagrand itself too, one of my favourite zones in WoW.

    Worst: Boiling Blood - Add to it the other quests in Zeth'gor, a bunch of ganking alliances and how narrowly the NPCs are tied together, not to mention the Eye of Kil'roggs everywhere, and this resulted in the worst moment I've ever had doing anything in WoW.

    Best: Tooga's Quest - Yes, it was a bitchy move having to go all the way from the bottom of Tanaris to the very top of it without allowing the use of a mount since you'd run away from Tooga and he'd be completely ripped to shreds by enemies, but I can't help it, Tooga brought the most fun and enjoyment for me out of any NPC in the game. He was simply the most comfortable NPC ever, and damn was it a punch in the face when you had walked all that way just for Tooga to get scolded by his wife Torta. And man, the day I saw him in Mount Hyjal helping out with the Molten Front dailies, kicking some bigger turtle ass was glorious. So many great memories lie just with Tooga for me, I enjoyed going on his quest with him, even if it was so casual, long and definitely not rewarding in the slightest, it was still my favorite quest 'till the day it was removed, and it remains the quest I have the fondest memories of.

    Best: The Day That Deathwing Came chain.

    Worst: Free From The Hold. Thank goodness this quest was removed, it was the WORST ESCORT QUEST EVER. Everything bad and annoying about this kind of quest was exemplified by this masochistic undertaking. Any Alliance who whines about Horde favoritism and never did this quest? YOU HAVE NO RIGHT. NONE. ZIP. ZILCH. NADA.

    Best - Gnomebliteration. Easy

    Worst - All the Nesigwary ones. imho - those were so boring.

    I just realized that although I got the Loremaster Achievement for both Catafail and MoP, I cannot recall even a single quest from either Cata or MoP and quite frankly, if you ask me what is going on lorewise in MoP the only thing that I am going to tell you is that it's about Pandas who know East Asian Martial Arts, East Asia and flying Chinese Dragons and this is it.

    I tried really hard, and I mean really hard, and I can't recall even a single quest from MoP. And yet I am "Loremaster". Similarly, I can't recall anything from CATA less that I dived a lot and it was about some Dragon.

    Ironically, I don't have the "Loremaster" achievement for either Vanilla or TBC.

    The quests I can recall:

    ========================================================================================== ====================
    http://www.wowhead.com/quest=7761/blackhands-command

    BLACKHANDS COMMAND

    Imbecile,

    I hold very little faith in your ability to prevent outsiders from accessing the master's lair. In the very likely event of your death, this orb has its own failsafe built in to prevent outsiders from teleporting directly into Blackwing.

    Only those with the Mark of Drakkisath branded upon their hand may make use of this orb. Thankfully, Drakkisath is not nearly as incompetent as you, Quartermaster. He guards the brand himself!

    -Warchief Rend Blackhand

    P.S. Destroy this letter, idiot.

    ========================================================================================== ====================
    http://www.wowhead.com/quest=963

    FOR LOVE ETERNAL

    Cerellean Whiteclaw says: Anaya...? Do my eyes deceive me? Is it really you?

    Anaya says: The ages have been cruel to you and I, my love, but be assured, it is, and at long last we are reunited.

    Cerellean Whiteclaw says: That the fates should be so cruel as to permit us only this after a thousand years apart...

    Cerellean Whiteclaw says: Do you hate me, my love? That I was forced to destroy your living form, that your spirit be released from unhappy bondage. Anaya says: Let it not trouble your heart, beloved. You have freed me from slavery, and for that I love you all the more.

    Anaya says....

    Anaya's soft voice trails away into the mists, "Know that love you always..."
    ========================================================================================== ======================

    ATTUNEMENT TO THE CORE

    http://www.wowhead.com/quest=2621/the-disgraced-one

    The Disgraced One
    ========================================================================================== =============

    I can also recall some TBC quests though not by name, the WOTLK quest about the Wrathgate and pretty much nothing after that. I

    The worst quests would be those made for MoP. Generic, uninteresting, uninspiring, boring and repetitive.
