Like every sentient creature I've ever killed in WoW, most have them never done me wrong. Some may aggro on me as I'm riding through a zone, but to them, I'm the invader. I'm on their turf. What right do I have to take their lives? They're probably trying to irk out a living too, maybe even level up or doing their own quests. Then again, like everything else in this game, they're immaterial. They aren't alive, they're not real. It's just something I have to do to earn immaterial money, or immaterial items. It's the boring crap this game forces you to do so you can eventually play the real game: Working together with other in instances or raids. (we're just talking PVE right now)So I wouldn't say most quests are awesome at all. Some are interesting in that I feel as if I'm actually helping the story. The rest are just odd jobs I have to do eventually play the real game.

My main is an undead warrior. Anytime I need to cough up a motivation for why he's carved an indiscriminate path of destruction and death across continents and even worlds I give the following explanation.My character is a wanted serial killer. In fact, he was caught and executed, but his burning hatred of all things living, and a lucky bit of plague, brought him back to continue his heinous killing spree.When I had a Night Elf, my explanation was "Now that we're not immortal, who the hell cares about protecting life and nature?"

I know that a lot of people would agree that the game starts at 70, but i'm guessing there's an even bigger, but less vocal group of people that think the game ends at 70. Yeah, the quests are kills this, collect that, but they allow you to immerse yourself in the environment in WoW. When I look back, my favorite moments in the game so far haven't been downing a really hard boss, they've been when I first traveled to Nagrand and looked to my right as I was heading from the consortium to Telaar and saw this huge crystal off in the distance in the middle of a large green field, or the first time I made it up to the gnomish airport, and then eventually climbed up to the peak of the mountain nearbye and found the sign marking the first dwarf who had climbed that peak.Not to say that the other view isn't valid, it's just strange to me when some poeple don't appreciate the journey as well as the destination.
