"But squeezing enough information to keep a player interested in just 511 characters is quite a feat."Let's be honest--at some point while we're leveling, most of us move to a system of automatically accepting every quest we come across. What actually captures our interest, unless we're RPing the character, is almost certainly the rewards, whether in the form of gold, XP, rep, or items.

I had this attitude until BC. The interesting-level of the quests really picked up for me during BC (although WotLK >>>>> BC by far in terms of quest interest).

Generally I'll whirl through on my main, but when levelling alts I'll take a bit more time to try and do more quests and read the quest text for each.

Not true. While some quests are a less interesting than others, I greatly enjoy the story that they tell, and always take the time to read them. There are truly some golden quest texts.And before you say anything, nope, I'm quite anything but a casual.*assassinates Stereotypes*

Let me clarify: I'm not saying we're not reading the quests, but rather that it isn't generally the quest text that guides us to accept as much as the proffered rewards.

I started out reading the text, got a bit bored with TBC text, read every quest text for the quests I did in Wrath with my first character to 80, and didn't give them a second glance with my next two.

@KarilynYes...and one day those quests will be compiled into a single tome called "The Book of Quests". It will be studied by our progeny and English majors will do their thesis on one of its sacred passages.
