The argument that this new addition will make the game too easy, lose immersion, you will never have to read your quest log anymore, and that having to do all of those things is enjoyable because it is difficult, I can't agree with.I like reading some of my quests when I am in the middle of a chain and I notice something about it that makes me go: "Whoa never had to kill these guys before, wonder whats goin on here". sometimes it is enjoyable. But when you are on your 8th lvl character thats lvl 70+ it gets old.lets not forget that not every quest has some beautifully told story behind it. There are quite a few that are simply 'kill x' or 'collect y' just becasue it will give you xp or cash.I have found that the best way to easily find quests worth reading are ones that have a very complex way of completing it. too complex for quest addons to help you with. the ones where you have to read it just to know HOW to complete it usually have a pretty awesome reason behind doing it (or a funny one, which is also good). Also, quests that you recieve from items that you get off of looted enemies can lead to some pretty awesome quest chains.despite all of that, though, after doing the fun quests several times you tend to not care anymore. and if with all the quests you do its easy to forget one you have comepleted before. Its not like this new tooltip will have anything to do with that though because like someone said earlier all it does is streamline completion of a quest that you have probably already read, located, and started trying to complete.as far as immersion goes, the tooltip is already out of that becasue of the very concept of what a tooltip is. if it was directly over the mobs head and never left even while not selecet then it would take away from immersion. as far as for veteran players, while i cant speak for all of us, i havent been 'immersed' in the game since after my first year of playing. That immersion thing wears off after youve raided MC 50 times to get the last peice of your raid set. I just kinda stopped thinkin about that aspect of the game a while ago (that doesnt mean i dont fully enjoy some of the new locations and quests put in every expasion, but i dont get immersed in it like when i first logged in after watching the vanilla WoW cenimatic).
