The underlying point your making is that the game is being, in a ways, dumbed down. Rather than exploring the world and being involved in it (as the quests examples the OP provides do - and much of the early game was like this - I really liked the start of the LBRS chain where there was no quest, but if you spoke to the old warlord in Kargath and listened to his story you then got it. This made interaction with NPCs alot more interesting), now we are spoon fed. Go to this spot - do all the yellow excalmation marks, do a circle of the map, hand in and leave. You almost miss the game.To this end I find that I am one of the few people that actually enjoys reading the quest text. For those that don't I highly recomend it, because there is some truly great stories inside those quests.The only problem I did face as that in contested zones (I play on a PvP realm), you often can't take the time to read the quest text and enjoy the storyline as its just providing an easy target. If there was some solution to this problem I think they could spread the quests out more and make the NPC's more....aliveBut they probably won't

I read the quest text for quests in my log... Usually while flying to a summoning stone, or to a spot to do some dailies...

I read all the quest text for my first characeter/main...After that on my alts, I just check the instant text box in the options and skip to the bottom where it summarizes. I'll go back and read if I can't figure it out after that.
