I think they have a very good mix when it comes to questing. Yes, some can be quite dullsville, but most seem to have a point. Early leveling quests are usually designed to just do simple tasks that help the user with learning the mechanics of the game, open up parts of the map, and give directions to a new zone. As you get higher in level, you start to find better lore related quests and some story lines. I just dig these ones.I'm not a lore guy myself. I can hardly remember what boss is where, and who did what to whom when and why everyone is so pissed off at whatshisname. Too complicated. But I just dig an epic quest line. In fact, one of the most enjoyable in game experiences that I've had since I lvl 70 was the quest line for my epic flight form. Good gravy, thats the longest quest chain in the game I bet. How many quests is it? 20? It took hours, but it never got dull. I can't spend a couple hours killing netherweb spiders for their silk, even though I need them every day for tailoring... I have about a 30 minute attention span for grinding. But a great quest line is a beaty to behold.Now that I have gotten a few pieces of gold back in my pocket after spending the 5000G on epic flight, I am planning on working my way through zones and starting to do every low level quest I can find. Partly because I'm a completist, partly for the rep, but mostly because I enjoy the little mini-story's that you get in a lot of them.Except for anything that takes me to Gnomeragen. I'm Alliance all the way, but one thing I agree with the Whored on, Gnomes should be KOS, if only because they built that horrid city. Worst. Instance. Ever!

For Drop Quests, I'd rather have to have a TON of pickups than have a drop rate of less than 50%. Its frustrating to kill and kill and get no reward. And it makes more sense that everyone (or nearly) everyone has a drop. Defias scarfs? every model is wearing one! Fuzz/hair/feathers from a beast? they all have it. You want 40 pieces of hair? Crap. Ok. But I'd rather do that than need to turn in 10 with a 25% drop rate. D
