This week it’s World of Warcraft’s own Dave “Fargo” Kosak taking the reins from Ghostcrawler. He’s discussing a subject that - as WoW’s lead quest designer - must be pretty close to his heart: “Content for the Casual 85”.
Kosak discusses the perils of keeping questing interesting, even when you’ve hit the level cap. After all, once you’ve hit that final ding, what motivates you do do quests? Probably money and rewards (such as mounts, epic gear and pets). Well Kosak uses this to segue nicely into his main topic of discussion: the upcoming Firelands dailies.
Yes, it’s yet another sign that 4.2 is coming Very Soon™but it’s also nice to focus on something that will be of interest to me and my fellow casual players (yes, raiding is not the be all and end all, even if it’s the endgame). Kosak puts it beautifully so I’ll let him explain the reason you’re going to want to do the dailies:
It finally feels like Blizzard are going in the right direction to make dailies a little more interesting and a lot less repetitive. Yes, you’re always going to be doing some quests again and again but, in this case, it’s looking like it’s going to be more than worth it, if not just for the rewards then for the lore too.
