It's this questline that made me regret that I had not stuck to my first Alliance character back when I started playing. Horde can only dream of awesome low level questlines like this, and it sure is one of the reasons leveling up hordeside can be such a drag.

It's a matter of opinion of whether these quests are better or not. While the story itself is interesting, it is extremely tedious in how much running around you do. Right now I'm leveling an alliance toon to do all of this stuff and I'm alright with the quests as long as there's a nice story or a good reward, but dear lord is there a lot of Fedex deliveries and I know a LOT of people hate doing them.I wouldn't say horde quests are necessarily worse. You just have to understand that they come from different perspectives. The Tauren have those interesting hunting quests, the Forsaken have quests that are typically bent on vengeance but usually have a hint of sadness in them, trolls have cool voodoo-ish quests, etc.The ax reward for this quest is totally awesome btw.

One thing is that most alliance players never even bother to read the letters.I've met people when doing this quest that are doing it for their tenth toon and have no idea what the plotline is.Stalvan's a Pedophile - the letters are his creepy perspective on the whole mess - and you get to take him out.But if most of the players don't even bother with the quest text, or reading the letters, it just ends up being a run around to get one of two very potent items for lowbie toons to level with.Horde has some interesting hidden stories in its questlines - but they're a lot less obvious. As one example; you can stretch over many zones and levels to catch glimpses of the plots of the Apothecaries and something to do with the Grimtotem faction of the Tauren all intertwined somehow...
