"You can disable the slow scrolling of text when you are receiving a new quest in. Hit escape to access your Options menu, go to Interface, then Objectives, and now check the box for Instant Quest Text."That's a very important point; thank you for bringing it up.I would add that you should keep quests you get that take you to a different zone, as long as that zone is not one that you have already out-leveled. I got to do quite a few extra quests on my priest because I did not immediately drop the quests after seeing that they were in a different zone. However, I did drop quests that took me to The Hinterlands after I was well beyond the level range for that zone. Out-of-zone quests are only worth it if you'll be heading to that zone anyways.

I thought the instant quest text was the default setting now?

That's a good point about out-of-zone quests, and it's often worth holding on to those (depending on the room in your quest log) because they are of a higher level, and thus give you full xp for a longer time. STV is a good example of this - you'll pick up quests while level 35-40 that take you to 35-50 zones like Hinterlands, Ashara, and Blasted Lands. All these hold their full XP value well into your 40s, and provide other valuable follow-up quests that can provide as a much as a level of xp alltogether, not to mention lots of lore and interesting stuff.I did a quest chain in Blasted Lands/Ashara a few days ago that yielded a trinket that I'd never seen before, and long before most of the trinkets available are really worthwhile (I'm looking at you, Luffa). It was the tenth or eleventh quest in the chain, and I'd done up to five or six on every toon before then, but never bothered to make the transition between zones. I did, and it was a new experience with a new thingy at the end of it.
