Last night, I got to level 76 on my main toon, Kharisi, and also made another milestone: I completed 1000 quests. That’s certainly by no means the amount of quests to this point, but simply the ones I completed. Over the past few months of playing WoW, there have been quests I’ve abandoned, resolving to pick up later (most of which I haven’t) due to their difficulty compared to my level, were based in dungeons, or were my least favorite type: escort quests.
I’ve traveled the Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor and Northrend for eight months now. I’ve killed critters, saved some lives, ended even more, fought against the alliance and scourge, dug through poop in Nagrand and bombed cities. I’ve been in the service of Arthas as a Death Knight before betraying him, slain dragons, resurrected others and all from my laptop.
For all the time I’ve played WoW, I’ve only had one requirement; it has to be fun. It has been, and continues to be a blast. I lay that at the feet of my guilds and guildmates. They all make logging in a great time. Even when I’m in the middle of another fetch quest for 30 raptor talons, they all make it bearable.
There will come a point where I put the game down; when the questing is no longer enough to draw me in, and the thought of leveling another character fills me with dread, but that will be a long time in coming.
