RP server or now, it's called an mmoRPg for a reason :-D And yes, I do get completely and utterly involved in quest storylines. I hated that torturing quest, for example. And loved the nearby rescue-the-murloc-babies one (I took several screenshots along the way of those cute little "hrrrrrllll...."s following me around, lol). I love the Cataclysm zones because they all feel so finished in themselves - like you say, it leaves you with a sense of accomplishment.:-)

I recall the cry out outrage over "The Art of Persuasion" when people first encountered it in WOTLK... and I honestly was baffled.You have a problem with torturing someone? Are you that clueless about the game environment and what you do in this game!?!?Let me see if I am hearing you right...You are willing to walk under corpses hanging from trees, pass by abominations with their guts hanging out, pass and not even ponder charcoal that is oddly human shaped and still smoldering, commit mass genocide, stab, shock, and blow up every human or creature your quest asks you to for a pathetic amount of gold... and yet torturing someone (who will live) bothers you?I would not be surprised in the least to hear that some of you had no idea that there are Gallows (you know, the things with nooses that hang people)... with blood stains outside very major hubs like Gadgetzan and Rachet.Ugh. Well... ok... I suppose it makes sense, if you RP an idiot...but otherwise, just no.

Sigh. It would be great if you kept your judgements to yourself. The question was how we reacted to certain storylines. I gave an example of one that made me go "ouch". I didn't say it was the only one, nor did I cry out in protest that the game is bad and so forth.I just answered a question honestly. Get off my back, will ya?

Like the article states, I change my opinion on quests depending on the state of my character...Forsaken Rogue? Kill kill kill, and reap the rewards of the bounties.Troll Shaman? Kill kill kill, and hope that it doesn't offend the elements.... ok, so maybe all of my characters are a bit mercenary at heart... That doesn't mean I didn't love the little murloc babies as well... And I did feel a bit evil when I was tasked to "borrow" some wolvar cubs back in Dragonblight. But what can I say? They were paying well, and it made them like me more. That fishing pole and penguin aren't going to earn themselves.

I agree with you. Strangely, though I don't mind killing baddies, I did mind torturing them... and I did love rescuing babies, even murloc-ish ones.Mostly, I find the quest lines not very interesting. I'd rather read a book, watch a movie, those usually offer a better plot, better told.

I had kind of an opposite experience. When I was playing my Forsaken Warlock, I hated the scare the Murloc children quest. My character would have been much more happy to cook a nice baby Murloc soup and sacrifice their souls to the highest bidder..
