View Full Version : Quest Philosophy: XP or Loot - Pick 1

For any given quest, it should either have great loot, or great XP, but certainly not both.

If Litany of the Dead was the same quest, but with the level of the quest bumped up a few points, the loot would be much better, and, lo and behold, people wouldn't think it was quite so frustrating and annoying.

Likewise, if you took the 20k PotP quest, and dampened the loot down a fair amount, people would still run it for XP, but they'd run other quests for loot. It would diversify the portfolio, at least until one was capped.

For too many players it is merely a time equation. Which quest can I run to get maximum benefit in a minimum of time.

The whole Favor system was designed to fight this tendancy by giving a reward of sorts for exploring lots of different quests.
