    They feel the same to me. Boring but Better than nothing though. Hard to figure out a solution to giving indefinite quests for solo game play without it feeling too repetitive.

    Dailies.

    MoP dailies gave us narrative, the quests were diverse and yeah some sucked, but so does a lot of WQs.
    Tillers, Orders of the Cloud Serpent, Shado-Pan, Isle of Thunder. They all offered diverse and random dailies that most of the time were quite fun. World quests just feel mindless in comparison.

    The only WQs I liked was the ones in Suramar because they actually offered a proper narrative and it felt like you were helping.

    I'm not talking about the daily cap of 20 that was removed.

    I'm talking about how each hub only had a certain amount and that was it for the day. World quests refresh twice a day though I'm pretty sure, and have far more in a zone overall.

    So last two expansions there has been World Quests instead of Daily Quests.

    But which do you prefer now when you've tried both?



    I personally enjoy daily quests more, more fun especially with professions, I loved fishing dailies for example lol.
    They are the exact same thing. Except World Quests are picked up and turned in at the quest location, where dailies require going to and from a hub.

    And yeah daily hubs, I miss hubs. The world feels smaller without hubs as you barely see anyone out in the world (that might also be because people are not playing BfA as well who knows). You see people in the capitals and that's it. I loved Suramar for giving us that hub feeling again. Class Order Halls were close as well. BfA has nothing like that.

    Why not both?

    Although, dailies really only functioned to increase rep w/ a faction over time. WQ's essentially serve that purpose now with added benefits.

    I suppose WQ's then.

    I feel like World Quests are a better game system as a whole. That said, the content it offers has some pretty big flaws. Right now you're basically just replaying the leveling content. Clear out that blood troll camp, kill ""rare"" mob you've already killed 30 times, etc. There is almost no variety.

    Imo, world quests should phase out the area they spawn in for max level players so that you can offer a new challenge in an already existing location. The naga invasions are a good example, more world quests should be like that. Spawn some semi-random enemies to occupy the area that you have to clear out for a kill X or fill the bar quest and spawn a semi-random mini boss for the Kill elite quest. Add some spice to a boring system.

    Yeah this is how I feel. Dailies back in the day felt related to the content in some way. But world quests to me just feel so random and unrelated to anything, you do them to get rep/rewards but feels quite detached.

    The difference is so marginal that it's hard to have a strong opinion either way.

    We had pointless daily quest (hubs) with bland quests that were the same every day, and we had daily quest (hubs) with changing quest sets that also changed with reputation. Some daily quest required quite an amount of travelling, others were close by and packed up.
    We've seen in Suramar that WQ can also fit in the current story, and generally WQs in Legion were more tied to the story (for example some where locked behind a certain quest progress).
    The only difference I see is that 99% of daily quests had just a gold reward, while WQs can have all kind of rewards - but that's obviously easy to change.
    An the advantage for WQs is that it does not force the whole server into the same spot with five people aoe spamming on every spawning spot (Golden Lotus dailies say hi). But with the current sharding tech this also would not matter anymore.

    So as I said I don't see an issue with either side, and personally am wondering while Blizzard always has that either/or system. You could have a daily hub and still emissaries and world quest. Or just have a daily hub available for every zone with an emissary active, that you could complete instead of the WQs.

    I don't much see the difference...but I like how 4 "of a kind" give an extra reward. And how for one faction they reward currencies to buy stuff.

    So WQs

    It was a much better expansion... than each and every expansion since.

    Dailies were far superior. They allowed you to focus your efforts on those that provided you with the best reputation rewards... but only after a good while did you earn a reward.

    World quests give you a dozen or more epics each day, and can give you a Mythic Raid level item by clicking on 10 squirrels and 15 nuts. What is that?

    This. Daily hubs like IoQ can be fun with all the wPvP if the area is well designed and server is balanced, but that is very rare so WQs win.

    World quests combined with Emissaries will always be superior to dailies. They are essentially dailies that you don't have to go to a hub to pick up. They could certainly have some more themed quests show up daily though. The beauty of WQ's is it gives you a lot to do if you are just bored or you can just do 4 emissary WQ each day and be done.

    Dailies are better from a narrative perspective, you actually get to meet your quest giver and there's more story behind what your doing. World quests are for most part just quests you've done before and have a lot less depth. I also liked picking up a full log of daily quests, do them all at the same time and then feeling the satisfaction of returning them all to the hub. Ideally there should be a mix of both.

    Dailies.

    Dailies were faster to do, had a central hub where you turned them all in.

    WQs are spread out for obvious reasons (time played metrics). Are a pain in the ASS to do (Kirin Tor WQs lol)

    I actually think having a mix of world quests, daily quests, and weekly quests is the best.

    I generally really like what they've done with world quests, though I wish they could increase the variety a bit more and give them a bit more narrative.

    I would rather have fewer overall WQs that are a bit more involved and unique than a huge number of WQs constantly available but which boil down to "go here and kill six guys then leave."

    Part of me wishes that all the work put into Island Expeditions had instead been put into adding large scale randomization to the WQs for each continent, such that every week the pool of WQs is a bit different, with unique quests, enemies, conditions, etc.

    Sounds like you're complaining about rewards and not the system that delivers them. Missing the point of the discussion entirely.
