View Full Version : "Not on This Quest" Warning?

06-20-2007, 05:55 PM
Quick thought for some of the multi-part quests:

I have seen WAY too many times that someone will forget to advance the quest properly and end up completing at least one more part before realizing the error. This usually puts the rest of the group in a bad position - either redo the quest you just finished, or continue on knowing that one of your members isn't getting the full benefit. And yes, I always remind people to speak with the NPCs, etc., but it doesn't always work.

One option to fix this: a warning or reminder when you attempt to zone into a quest that basically says you aren't actually on it. I can see this getting annoying at times, but I think it is worth it. This could be applied to just multi-part quests, but I'd like to see it for all of them.

From what I am told LOTRO has a "share quest" feature that would likely work as well. Party leader clicks share quest just before everyone enters and no more running delara's 5 times just to finish it once.

I prefer to let the players be accountable for themselves. If that's too difficult for them, my Granddaughter can recommend some Barbie games that she enjoys for them.... ;)

This has been asked for before but since its a good idea it doesnt hurt to ask again.

This doesn't seem like an unreasonable request. It wouldn't even require a separate popup (which could get annoying), just add the text at the bottom of the quest entry screen when you click on the entry.

True - this could be accomplished by simply adding a message (in red or something?) to the quest pop-up - sort of like the message that the quest is already active.

Regarding making players responsible for themselves, it'd be nice, but when I have to repeat quests in the catacombs, Delera's, etc. when they don't pay attention, I'd like to give them all the help I can.
