    I hate Red fens in general, mostly because the effects cause lag for me, and Gianthold because of the red color is so depressing.
    In general, I like the lighter and friendlier mood, that makes me feel I am a hero and all is in control. Helps me have fun and relax.
    Green, blue, light gray.

    I hate the "dark and broody" teenager feel with deep red and black. I feel way too old for that.

    I want to change my choices. Pick any three from Gianthold, and THOSE are my favorites!

    I like how this thread has everyone listing different quests... almost of all which I agree are good quests...

    So we're talking at least 100 really good quests just in this thread.

    DDO is a pretty good game, don't you think?

It is like going to a museum and bragging about how fast you made it through. Or bragging about how fast you finished a good steak.

    An amazing game. Too bad it attracts a disproportionately large number of whiny cry babies....

    How many of those quests came out after MOTU?

    Im seeing alot of older content being named - quests made when content focus was the primary driver for financial success.

    My top 3

    1) Sorrowdusk, all quests - I just love this chain and the adventure area. I run it every life, usually twice. I find the story engaging and the quests an all around blast. I love running around the island.

    2) Devils Assault - I love defensive quests, and this one is the best of them. Kobold assault is a contender here too.

    3) Shroud - Just awesome. Perfect raid. Awesome boss fights, neat puzzles, requires just the right amount of teamwork.

    Hmm

    1. Delera's chain
    2. Stormcleave
    3. Von chain

    While I like XC I don't find it a challenge and if it wasn't for the pressure plates it would be easy for most to solo

    Acute Delirium
    Undermine
    Sorrowdusk chain (for nostalgia reasons, it is one part of DDO which is the most like 1st ed. AD&D)

    As for raids... I had done surprisingly few of them. I did HoX and VoD exactly once each, Tempest Spine, Chronoscope and Plane of Night a few times, and Shroud dozens of times. Of these, Shroud is my favorite.

    Oh, and I really like Cannith challenges, to the point I made a MinII longbow for my bard as Devashta-beater. Eveningstar challenges, not much.

    It's really hard to come up with only three. A lot of quests have aspects that I like, but here are my top three based on the quests overall:

    3. The Pit

    The very concept of the quest - restarting a giant machine - just epitomizes the Eberron setting for me. It's challenging on multiple levels - enemies, puzzles, navigation, etc. On top of all of it, there are plenty of secret extras. From the moment I received my restart manual I was hooked.


    2. The Lord of Blades

    LoB is easily my favorite raid in the game. I realize folks have a soft spot for others like VoN because of nostalgia and story or Abbot for the difficulty and sense of accomplishment, but LoB is just good design. First, the pre-raid sets the scene well while not overshadowing the raid itself. In raids like VoN the difficult part is the pre-raid; the actual raid boss just feels anti-climactic after the complexity and teamwork required to get that far. The raid itself helps to tell the story. From the warforged converts to the floating platform (when's the last time anyone rode that!) that shows off the scope of the creation forge, it all feels right at home in Eberron. The fight itself is well done. There's a lot to keep track, plenty of jobs for everyone to do, and there's enough variation in the boss beatdown that it doesn't get boring.


    1. Beyond the Rift

    BtR does such a great job of capturing the feel of the Forgotten Realms. Right from the start you get to see Elminster in all his Mary Sue glory as he one-shots a bebilith and babbles about his exploits and schemes and other assorted BS - all voiced just as I'd expect Elminster to sound. The Demonweb and, especially, the Underdark look amazing. The Underdark actually feels like a dark, oppressive, and dangerous subterranean realm. The Underdark is also a great introduction to FR with all of the spiders and their overpowered, spider-loving drow masters. Even the spellwards, as annoying as they are and as much as I hate them, feel right at home in a drow-controlled section of the Underdark. You top it all off by meeting Ana Brabener, who is simply Shandril Shessair - the overpowered Mary Sue skank from Spellfire - with the serial number filed off. BtR encapsulates everything there is to love and hate about the FR in one fantastically beautiful quest, and I love it.


    Honorable Mentions

    • Proof is in the Poison - great combination of challenge and story
    • Depths chain - classic D&D style adventure
    • Ruined Halls - I love monsters fighting each other, and storing them in stasis crates and barrels is so Eberron
    • Prove Your Worth - breath of fresh, non-hack-and-slash air
    • Ghost of a Chance - epic tile puzzle for a worthy cause
    • Inspired Quarter - so trippy
    • Prison of Planes - love the concept of a planar prison
    • Monastery of the Scorpion - more than just hack-and-slash, very atmospheric, a rogue's paradise
    • Tomb of the Tormented - I love it as much as everyone else hates it

    Astreya the Unturning

    It's always a shame when the hammer of poor design choices smashes the fun of player tactical adaptation.

    I only listed two quests before, so after some though here's my third:

    Colossal Crystals. Technically it's a Challenge, but it's as good or better than any of the quests out there. Requires teamwork, strategy, there is a learning curve, and it was just the right amount of challenging.

    Haverdasher - It's quick and yields many vials of pure water. I don't particular like scorpions but at least they BBQ crispily.

    Gwyland's Stand - Always fun. Good experience and loot. And I have fond memories of everyone dying a lot in one of the sections.

    Crystal Cove (or maybe it's named Euphonia's Challenge?) - The original challenge. I still love it.

    Delerium - Different, weird and amusing.

    Sharn Syndicate - Fast to run and varied. A nice change of pace.

    The Depths chain - Again, fast to run but the monsters always seem nicely varied - a good variety of critters.

    Chronoscope - It's always a little surreal playing a quest in the marketplace.

    1) Tempest Spine

    2) Shroud

    3) Chronoscope

    Know all three backwards but never tire of them. Tempest spine is such a romp (although I usually end up hanging back to help find the new player who always gets left behind and lost)

    Tough to get down to three really =/

    The Pit: It's a quest that when I first started playing (and for a pretty long time after) was in my eyes a quest that was super hard and only to be done with a very good, full party. But I eventually managed to learn the quest, got better at the game and it eventually became a quest that I could do on my own, which makes it really satisfying to do. It's still a fairly challenging quest and requires tactics and it's just so nice to defeat something that used to seem overwhelming.

    The Crucible: Very similar to The Pit, but it used to be even scarier. I still don't know it perfectly but I know enough of the tricks to solo it these days, but it's a really interesting quest and it's nice to play when you're not as stressed and lost.

    Delirium: I just love this quest for so many reasons. Drinking beholders under the table? Fighting keys? Secret rooms in mirrors? Revolting puzzle tiles? Great narration? Man that quest has everything.

    The Shroud: Another quest that used to terrify me for a very, very long time. Made worse by it being a raid. It's a fun and varied quest that tests the party in a fair few ways. There's always the chance of failing, and the times that you do fail just make the times that you succeed taste even sweeter. I like quests where there's teamwork involved, but not just for the sake of it (I don't like quests like Xorian Cipher because the only real reason that you're /required/ to have a party is because of having to be in two/four places at once.)

    Hounds of Xoriat: I've got to admit, I've only done this raid... twice I think? And one of those was a wipe. But man it's so satisfying to complete this quest, and the teamwork that you have to do to pull it off is really fun. I'd love to do it more often, but I don't know it well enough to lead a group and I don't see groups for it very often at all.
