    LOL

    What rubbish. I've leveled two chars to lvl 60 and two to 40+ and have never been short on good quests and NEVER had to grind.

    LOL

    edit: $15 (or £8 in proper money) is a fantastic price for what you can do in WoW.

    Go play Lineage 2 if you want to see what a grind is like leveling in WoW is quick and easy if you want quests then do some research I've seen guides that walk you through leveling to 60 by doing nothing more that quests and for the love of whatever god you believe in you should either cut down on the cafeen or take English again because although I don't usually bash on people for their grammar skills you really need to organize your thoughts so that people understand what it is you are trying to say or perhaps you intentionally made a huge run on sentance to hide the fact that you are trying to plug Guild Wars but maybe if that game didn't suck so bad you wouldn't have to come to the WoW forums to plug it.  Peace

    Nonsense...WoW doesn't even qualify as a grinding game.... never did i find it easier to level up characters and run through hundreds of quests to do it.  I played both sides (Horde and Alliance) to create 5 60's... and I always found plenty of quests to do until I got into the upper 50's  (they quests then were all epic and really only done by 60's)

    I second that.

    Lineage 2 has a much harder grind than WoW.

    I can't speak for higher level WoW quests but at least WoW has decent quests. L2's quests (in my opinion) are crap.

    Well, duh, most have been a real challenge for you to figure that out, genius. Let me start by saying that GW isn't even a mmorpg, period. They all have grinding, but in this case, WoW makes it a lot easier and if you think that this one has a harsh grind then I wish you good luck finding one thats easier.

    I always stop reading when I see "get to like lvl 30".  A retarded half-monkey turd baby could get to level 30 just clicking random keys.

    It does get tougher (read: longer) to accrue experience and advance later on in WoW, yeah, and it does have some grinding, like all the MMOs do, but I never understood this attitude that the quests are worthless. This isn't just chess, man! If you want to play a pure game with no other redeeming features, there are plenty of brainless exercises out there....hell, even if the quests offered zilch for experience (which they do not, quests really help stay focused and offer plenty fo xp) they help you to learn the story of both the world and your character.....this is a role playing game, after all!

    I'll never understand people who play WoW or any other game but can't even tell you what the basic back story is, let alone why their toon is adventuring....

    Some people are just stupid. What MMO doesn't have some sort of grind? Maybe there is one but the top MMOs have grinds so your statement is completely irrevelevant. Guild Wars is a completely different type of game... because it uses the skills and the majority of content is for when you hit the max level. To mention Guild Wars (which is a lot of fun) has nowhere near as much content.. the content makes up for the grind..

    I'm glad you enjoy Guild Wars but when you say a major MMO has a grind... I have to respond with a big fat Duh!

    First of all why do ppl always say gw is not a mmorpg it has a quest, its got a huge map to venture on, you can make parties, you can be in guilds.  In WoW when i do quests i get like 1000xp then i relize i need to get 300000xp more to gain a lvl so how r u gonna do that many quests? Peace brother.

Peace brother.Diablo 2 has plenty of quests and huge maps, but is it a mmorpg? No. You should be happy that you gain exp at all considering the fact that on most mmos out there, you dont get any exp when finishing quests. However in WoW, you can get items, cash and exp from one single quest. Learn to appreciate that.

    Ha, you obviously have no clue or are trolling. I've leveled multiple 60s, as has my wife and son, and there is plenty to do all the way to 60.



    Guild Wars was a joke, IMO.

    I've leveled 30 60's my wife 20 and our 2 sons got 40 each and my great great grandson leveled 50!    Who really cares how many 60's you got? or your wife or kids for that matter?  For you to state that GW is a joke shows me that you are a moron!  GW is a MMORPG!  PERIOD.... I've played said game as for WoW.  They are both great games with their own features.  They both have great content.  To each and it's own opinion is just that an opinion.   I don't care about your opinon or the next person as well as you shouldn't care about mine.  But, I will not read such garbage and let you think that you actually said something meaningful.  Play the game and stfu, stop complaining about grinding and FFS stop trying to compare games!  Everyone knows that MMO's contain grinding, stop stating the obvious.

    Okay, poor spelling aside, the fastest way to level up SOLO (Read: Tap leveling) is about 4 parts questing to one part grinding, depending on your particular path. The fact that you say you get no experience from quests with zero proof tells me you're probably just trying to stir the pot.

    Since when are there "limits" on fantasy such as you're suggesting?

    Keep in mind the definition of the world "fantasy" before you reply please.

    On-Topic, I would say there are things that can be deemed as "grind" in just about every game.  Some people find quests to be grind, others find repeptive farming for exp. or gold "grind".  If you don't like the idea of "grind" MMORPG's probably aren't the best way to spend your time, for personal frustration's sake.

    just because its fantasy doesnt mean you should be able to do things that are imposible.

    What you say doesn't make any sense, even worse is you believe what you are saying....seriously FFS, don't post anymore, you aren't making any point at all.

    Look: Just because you don't know what you're doing and don't bother trying to quest efficiently, doesn't make quests less efficient than grinding. Granted, I'll give you level 59-60, there are some pretty good grind spots and I pretty much run out of quests to do solo. But even then, before that you don't even have to be that efficient. Are you absolutely sure you think before you post? Where is all this backup information?

    Also, for future reference: Only saying you have proof isn't proving your point to someone, it's proving to them you're probably wrong and trying to backpedal out of an argument you shouldn't have started.

    Peace,

    Chris
