Trion should look at Guild Wars 2 Dynamic Events and learn from that. No one want to do quests because it's fun, they do it to level up and when we are at 50, we only get gear grind.
Enjoy the read!
Think about it Trion. Rift would be much more fun and interesting to play with Dynamic Events. Replayabillity and immersive = FUN.
WvWvWvE - World versus World versus World versus Environment
3 servers fighting over keeps,caves for rescources,sourcestone for cannons,fighting monsters of the planes etc etc. GMs could run unique events in this map and give awesome rewards. Many possibilities with a map like this, so many things to do.
Rift will offer replayabillity and FUN, without grind. Rift's key features need to offer REPLAYABILLITY AND FUN AND NO GRIND. FUN FUN FUN FUN = SUCCESS.
My answer below.
Quests will never be the same thing as Dynamic Events. Quests have NO replayabillity. Dynamic Events has just that little thing that makes gaming more fun and successfull. Replayabillity,immersive and social fun.
Those three things makes it successfull. You can deny it all you want, but i believe in it and you can't change my mind. It's rather a fact than an opinion. I accept others opinions but at times they can be ignorant and they don't know what the other option may offer and in this case that other option is Dynamic Events.
" I like certain zones and quests when can be lumped into a general area rather than run and do one quest, turn in, then run and do one more."
With the quest system, yes this is the best way to do it, you feel that you have accomplished more when you turn in 5 quests at once, fast and easy, rather then when you turn in one at a time.
With Dynamic Events this is not the case. It's a totally different experience. You have to see it to understand what i mean.
If you see that your neighbour's house is on fire, you would call the firemen and find a solution to stop the fire. You may listen if you can hear anyone in the house and help them out. You would not think "Oh wait i forgot to buy milk yesterday" and then go to the store to buy milk. The milk is a minor issue while the fire is a major issue. That's why you concentrate on the major issue that cause a great impact on you and the world around you. The milk issue is personal and not very important at all.
In Guild Wars 2 you will experience these things with Dynamic Events, major and minor or rather from minor to major issues, though even minor issues in Guild Wars 2 would cause an impact. In Rift all quests are minor issues, that's why you can do 5 quests at once and then go on to next bunch of quests as easily. These quests has no impact on the world,on you or on anyone around you.
