    Classic quests being tedious and boring

    There's this achivement in retail "Two sides of the tale" which rewards a mount. Currently working on alliance side of the quest. So the waycrest manor quest can't be turned in to npc because I didn't complete the Drustvar storyline and npc is phased out.. Oh well- I have to do the drustvar story then I thought. Got to the quest "charming the lifeless" which is guess what - not possible to get because there's a naga world quest active in the area so I can't pick up the freaking thing. I have to wait for the world q to end.

    Classic quests might be tedious to a point. But retail quests are freaking ridiculous. I'd rather do classic qs any day, phasing sucks.

    Still better than collecting 20 bear arses with 10% droprate and a spawn of three bears every five minutes.

    You kinda need to be a little heartless when hunting for your next meal

    Wow... that title and then the context of your statement.

    Your problem is with the retail quest system - but your title is that classic quests are boring and tedious?

    No, it's a "Classic is better than retail" thread.

    I find it more boring in retail than Classic to fly from one spot highlighted on the map, gather 5 required mobs at a time without them posing any kind of a threat, aoe them down mindlessly, then fly to the next group of mobs. That's like a definition of mindless boredom.

    Ah yes, it's so much better to run there, fight a single mob along the way, sit and drink, fight another mob, drink, rinse and repeat for 10 minutes to finish one quest

    Yeah, I started reading and was like..."Oh..nice bait"

    Jesus..why can't people enjoy the version they like best? It is bad enough when you need to piss on other games, but how pathetic is it to shit on another iteration of the same game? Do people need validations from others on how what they feel, think and do is ok so badly?

    Classic was/is, to a not insignificant degree 'kill x, loot y meat' quests but so is retail to a slightly different degree.
    Classic had nice lore themed, class themed (killed in retail), more of longer q-chains .

    Point is, Classic had its fair share of dumb fuck quests like Barrens collect 60 tusks, 1 wand, 1 shield, 1 whatever with crap droprate, but...
    I would take that any day over retail daily quest hamster wheel while presumably paying irl money for a shitty re-colored mount in the Blizzard Store.
    Killing alliance APES all day on Gehennas

    It's PITA to farm all those quest items but i still think 100% drop rates are even more boring and pointless. Somehow i suspect they have nerfed most drop rates in Classic since release.

    Anyway, Classic quests is the main reason i still keep playing this 15 old relic and why i will never even glance at retail WoW.

    Lmao

    Threads like this make me smile.
    Scheduled weekly maintenance caught me by surprise.

    This thread honestly shouldn't be in the classic forums, an off hand comment about it doesn't mean it should be here when it's not the focus of discussion.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
