Adding a quest or some NPC's doesn't break the fourth wall. It might for some RP people, but a majority play the game to have a good time.The problem with Uldum is that half the zone was an Indiana Jones reference. A little excessive. Fun, but over the top.If they had reeled it in a little and shortened the questline, adding more story to the tol'vir and titans it would've been better.That being said, where is my demon with an irrational fear of bunnies? Or my witch that likes to flay people in the woods? I'd like these things please.

I actually didn't enjoy the Tol'vir parts at all. I cheerfully did all the Harrison Jones quests in the zone and wished there were more, then reluctantly went and did the rest of the zone. Personally I'd have been more than happy following Harrison Jones for the whole zone's worth of quests, but I know I'm not in the majority.

I don't know; a friend and I RP'd through Uldum, including the Jones questlines. Given our characters know nothing of the Indiana Jones movies, it was easy to ignore and just have fun with it ICly, while OOCly we were giggling and playing the theme music.Gnomebliteration, on the other hand, I couldn't find a way to justify ICly. But these days, in order to complete chains and a zone, you have to do every single quest in the line or risk locking yourself out of instance quests, specific rewards, etc. >.< If anything ruins the immersion for me as an RPer, it's what pen-and-paper RPers refer to as "railroading" through story. There're only one or two ways I can go to continue my quest, level, and complete the zone. It's better streamlined than it used to be, but seems a little too far in the other direction sometimes; on the other hand, it's easier to find what you're missing and where to continue forward with the story. If I'm "out of quests" there are a few places I can look to find an exclamation point that's since popped up. So, it has its ups and downs.

Well, I knew it was going to be over the top the moment I found myself in a chest to avoid an explosion >_<
