Wow, corwin read my mind; I was going to submit this very question.I like the mechanic of the Grizzly Hills PvP quests; they don't mandate PvP combat, so you can complete them in off-peak times or on low population servers; they just flag you for PvP and put players from both factions in the same location, and let's see what happens...I think that because you can level to 80 so quickly now, you're likely to level past the range where the items from Venture Bay are useful (with some exceptions -- the Resto Shaman totem is apparently the best you can get before 80) so there's little incentive to do the quests aside from the Grizzled Veteran achievement.The other big flaw with Venture Bay is that it's pushed all the way into the far corner of Grizzly Hills, which means that you can't just drop by and do a quest or maybe tag an unlucky opposing player. I was able to do Grizzled Veteran on two different characters without ever encountering an opposing player.

Personally I found the Blue Sky Logging Grounds quests to be the best leveling boost in the game. 4 quests than can be done simultaneously in less than 15 minutes. That's like a free bar of experience every day from level 73 to 78 or so. I never pass those up on any character that is near the Grizzly Hills area.
