WoW: Vision ProblemsHow in the hell are you supposed to tell what's going on in this game?
Any time you're anywhere near a group of players, you can't even figure out what the hell is going on.
Everybody's running and jumping, and then seven people ride past on horses that are either ghosts or on fire, and then hey, some guy rides past you on a snow tiger, even though the city you're in is located in a temperate or boreal climate, oh and then some guy with huge black/purple armor that is also on fire starts jumping all around you as he screams about how he wants to sell his [Epic Big Cool Thing I found], but he is way overpricing it, and then everyone shouts at him in the general chat and calls him an idiot, not that it even matters because there's no way in hell you could ever find that guy even if you wanted to which you don't.
Did you have trouble reading that?
That's what it's like to run through Stormwind.
Only with more shoulder pads.
LOTS of shoulder pads.
And what's with all the quests that ask you to go get 17 of something?
Hey, terrible bandits are attacking our farm. No, don't help us learn to fight. Bring us back 15 of their bandanas and we'll be fine.
That's an actual quest.
Now that I think about it, it's like 5 quests. Each time they just ask you for different numbers of bandanas.
One lady uses the bandanas to make you a red shirt with no stat enhancements on it.
You just killed dozens of people to get a red shirt.
After killing that many people, I'm pretty sure your shirt would be red anyway.
Honestly, the quest thing is driving me crazy. Every other person is handing you a laundry list of things to bring back to them.
Go find this guy and get a book. Then bring the book back to me. Then I'll have another message for the guy. You run it out to him. Then he'll send a thank you note. You carry that, too.
I'm sorry, but I don't remember choosing a Human Messenger when I rolled up my character.
I wouldn't even do the quests, but they give you so many exp points for them.
Yes, you get exp points for doing quests.
Hell, you get exp points for doing anything.
You can honestly just stumble through the woods and you're going to get exp.
There's a tower you haven't seen before.
700 exp points.
Oh, there's nothing in the tower.
But you found it.
Yes, sir. Good job.
You could probably get to level 20 just off tower finding alone.
And it's not just the towers. You walk three feet west and hit a new area... Boom. Exp.
Sure, you still get exp for killing bad guys (for bandanas), but that's normal.
What's not normal is that you got exp for finding the house of the guy who wants the bandanas.
And got more for bringing them back.
How freaking isolated must your life have been that finding a random house in the woods constitutes actual life experience for you?
You can't put that on a resume.
- High School diploma
- Computer training
- Able to find random houses in the woods
That's not experience.
That is the opposite of experience.
You are not going to look back in your golden years about the time you found a house in the woods.
If you do, it means your life, as a whole, was a failure.
Of course, if you look back in your golden years about the time you found a house in the woods IN A VIDEO GAME that will probably be worse.
OldGuy>> ... And that's the day I explored Westfall.
Son>> Dad... Please stop talking about WoW.
Son>> Mom always hated that.
Daughter>> Yeah, Dad.
Daughter>> That was a terrible eulogy.
I understand that a roleplaying game has to have quests.
That's kind of a rule.
But if you're going to have quests, make them all go in one direction.
If I have to run through that same damned forest one more time, someone is going to get slapped.
Then I'll take their bandana.
