@DaedalusI read their statement about implementing a quest to mean that a quest wouldn't be a suitable vessel because they want it to feel like an epic accomplishment. My view is that quests are one of the best ways to implement something and make it feel like an epic accomplishment, such as the Dreadsteed quest and some of the demon quests. So no, my complaint is not that they want to wait and do it in the manner of one of those epic quest chains I have such fond memories of. My complaint is that they seem to be disregarding a questline as suitable means for it altogether.And while I can understand why Blizzard decided to give alternate means of obtaining demons and the Dreadsteed, I don't support their decision to remove the quests entirely. Leaving them in-game as an optional thing to do for players who wanted to do them would've been the better solution. I got a chance to do the Blood Elf Paladin mount questline before it was removed and I still think it was one of the best class quests. I would love for them to bring back the old class quests. Again, that's not what I read Blizzard saying though.@ElrithCCCan you give me an example of something popular that people want where Blizzard has said they're just not doing it for whatever reason? I honestly can't think of one. It's almost always "something we'd like to do but can't right now because of time/technology/etc." There's plenty reason to be skeptical. Blizzard has an incentive in a situation like this to soften the blow as much as possible. I'm admittedly jaded about stuff like this, but I'm only offering my position. If you can't even acknowledge my viewpoint then I'd say you're turning a blind eye to the possibility in the first place. I don't think everyone who holds a contrary position is a "kiddie;" they may well be right. But for me, personally, Blizzard is losing my trust.
