And if you do get into any conversation, it's all about the minmax. I'm a social person in these games, I like to get to know people, the various colorful personalities, and after a month in game my friends list was zero. I was like fuck this, I'm playing a single-player game here, these people aren't people, they might as well be NPCs.
Couldn't agree more with everything you said. You pretty much nailed it! I always thought the "go go go" part of the game was a quality of life change that made MMORPGs better, but now I see that the downtime is part of the reason players talk to each other because.......well, because there's nothing else to really do. Gems is only fun for so long.

The scary part is, that this (cwow) is the future of MMORPGs and the blueprint that most gaming companies use to make one so our beloved genre may be gone for good.

People refer to Everquest as Neverquest since there are remarkably fewer quests than other MMPORGS. In reality the quests in WoW are not a challenge. Its always the same

Kill X of Y <insert enemy>
Get 3 Lion Blood
Escort X NPC to <place> (shudder)

They are mostly time sinks to create the false illusion of not camping a certain area.

The lore of WoW is amazing, the world looks more "alive" i guess. BUt it cant replace the great social part of EQ.
crushbone belts best quest

Yeah EQ quests are bullshit. You have to go up to all the npcs in the entire world and go hail and see what they say. Imagine having to do that? Going from one to another to another just hail hail hail what sarnak tabard what bottle of wine what beetle pincer what what what.

You're TYPING OUT ALL THE WORDS wtf! Spell 'augury' wrong now you're fucking typing that shit all over again! Arghh! And that guy I have to carry the letter to, where is the guy on the map! I mean where is the map, but if I had a map the guy wouldn't be on there anyway, it's like some kind of double-screwing.

I am so sick and tired of this low quality questing, I tell you.

What I need is a Quest window that opens when I log in with all the available quests that I can sort by reward. Then I can click the "Complete" button next to the quest, my reward is then autoequipped and the previous item is automatically sent to the bazaar for auction. This way I can complete two, three-dozen quests as a nice warm up exercise before heading out to the raid or whatever.

Sure i know there are quests.

But you probably get more quests in 1 continent of WoW than in all of EQ is what i mean. And i still prefer EQ

Ah Anarchy Online. I beta tested that one. It had such potential! But yet, it was a Funcom game, meaning it lead the way for future Funcom games that were ultimately super disappointing. Anarchy Online, Conan and Secret World had such great promise on paper.

Solid CD lineup, Baler.
