The Hodir rep dailies. It's less "something horrible I had to do in the game" and more "something I had to do in the game that made me really uncomfortable." But the Hodir dailies, the "polishing the knob" and "blowing the horn" and the rest of the bj joke quest names -- I get that for guys it's probably just a matter of "haha, blowjob jokes are funny!" and that's fine, for them. But as a woman, it's always made me feel uncomfortable and a bit icky. Not so much because blowjob jokes aren't funny, because hey, I have a sense of humor, too -- but because these are rep quests that you *have* to do repeatedly, if you want access to the high-end shoulder enchants, so there's an element of coercion there that just makes me really unhappy.

It's not just you as a female. Being a male, I too didn't care much for that. Of course, I am well past age 21, both physically and mentally. Its sad, when they could have done better with that. For me, it lessened my enjoyment of the game.

Wow - i've been doing those for a year i guess and never even considered that subtext. In my defense, i'm the guy that clicks through the walls of text for quests in an effort to get them done as i really don't care about the Lore of this game (well not as much as i should).
I must be one of the immature masses they put that stuff in for, I found them very funny. I like crude humor that if you can get it there is no harm in but if your young and don't already know the offensive stuff there is no damage done.

I agree, it made me somewhat sad to see blizz going for that kind of gimmick. I had no intention of polishing anyones anything in a game like wow. Its more something i'm trying to escape the constant focus on from irl media, so having a "MUST HAVE" faction with dailys like these were really irritating for me. Probably getting to old for jokes like that i guess. Just dont seem as funny to push sexjokes on people as it used to do 15 years ago. In terms of torture/killing/evil etc etc.. Actually a very good question. I feel wow dont really have any option for good/bad compared to many other games and that the quests are more to tell a story then actually being a good/bad person for doing them. The mobs respawn, no harm done :-p

The premise that you HAVE to do the crudely named dailies to get Hodir Rep is completely false. You can use either Relics of Ulduar or Triumph badges to advance your rep very quickly. You could also just do the quests "Hot and Cold" and "Spy hunter" without getting all uncomfortable. Lastly you can find and turn in everfrost chips.Or you know, you could admit to yourself that none of the quests actually involve the suggested innuendo. They're just lame puns.

While the quest names were apparently written by sixth graders, they're generally good for a chuckle and there's certainly no actions you take completing the quest that involve anything out of the ordinary for WoW. Methinks you've overthinking this.

Sorry, I didn't even notice. Maybe I'm just not pre-occupied with that sort of thing (except.. I actually am and _still_ didn't notice).I was given a horn, and it made noise when i blew it, nothign suss there. Who refers to their penis a horn anyway? Then I saw a dull looking helm - not knob, not sure where you got that from - and killed some blobs for oil to polish it. I don't think about sex when polishing my cutlery either, though I probably will now.
