This week itÂs World of WarcraftÂs own Dave ÂFargoÂ Kosak taking the reins from Ghostcrawler. HeÂs discussing a subject that - as WoWÂs lead quest designer - must be pretty close to his heart: ÂContent for the Casual 85Â.
Kosak discusses the perils of keeping questing interesting, even when youÂve hit the level cap. After all, once youÂve 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, itÂs yet another sign that 4.2 is coming Very SoonÂbut itÂs 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 itÂs the endgame). Kosak puts it beautifully so IÂll let him explain the reason youÂre 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, youÂre always going to be doing some quests again and again but, in this case, itÂs looking like itÂs going to be more than worth it, if not just for the rewards then for the lore too.
