Making the World of Warcraft more trivial, one post at a time…


It’s time to be positive. It’s time to stop complaining about the Shattered Sun quests and suggest how it might have been done better. This is what would have improved it for me:

  1. Rep-based Quest Chains: At each level of reputation, a new PvE quest chain is opened up, that would have given us more of the lore behind the Shattered Sun Offensive and Kael’s fall. That’s only four quest chains, and it would have given us something to look forward to after each round of dailies.
  2. Random Dailies: To break the monotony of the quests, have sets of random quests, alongside the progression ones. The mechanism is already there in the instance, Battleground and Fishing/Farming dailies, so it would make sense to extend it to the SSO. A degree of randomness would really alleviate the feeling of doing the same thing again and again.
  3. More Geographical Diversity: The addition of random quests would give the chance of spreading the load a little, spreading the quests right across Outland – or at least anywhere where Kael’s forces have a presence. Time is ticking for Outland, so it would have been nice to have the quests give us something of a "farewell tour".

Those few changes would have made the difference for me. Any other suggestions?

  • Agreed on all points. Especially the first one. The lack of Lore is sad. I’m not really a big lore person, but I do like to read whats going on and why when I’m in a new zone.
