    That is one mighty tough question....

    I actually have no idea, but i would have to say it must be a Secret world quest because of the games fantastic stories with engaging gameplay.

    WAR

    Was a level 2 or level 3 quest for greenskins, to assault a stuntie stronghold. You sat in a catapult and got shot across a lake to land on top of a wall, where you then had to kill some dwarves. Made me laugh. 


    (I dislike questing. 99% of storylines suck and the gameplay isn't unique. I generally prefer quests that lead to dungeons because I like group content, but it's not the quest itself that was good, but the dungeon).

    Storytelling is the weak point of many mmos, something that is better served in single player games... But GW Nightfall was a campaign I enjoyed a lot, and I think P101 has some great little story arcs that are a lot of fun.

    Tough Question...As a quest in an MMO sense implies a single "quest"... which is but a small part of some truly epic "quest arcs"...

    I think EQ Epics are in the discussion... a long adventure with great rewards...
    I also think most "story arcs" are in there like the class stories from SWTOR, or the Mages Guild from ESO

    BUT for pure one shot enjoyment quest... The Loppi-lopp in Wildstar... you have to lick some lolli-lops that make you hallucinate and run around like a madman with all trippy colors and stuff... To this day me and the wife joke about licking the lollylops

    Wildstar, in general, had some amazing humor and quests.... to bad the gameplay was subpar.... it could of been a contender.

    The Secret World.. most quests are better then any other mmo quests. There are some missions that are so epic in scope that im not sure there are single player games with as good story/mission/quests.

    Everquest! Epic quest was rewarding and long. My favorite was 

    Coldain Ring #10: Ring of Dain Frostreaver IV 

    You triggered a Npc war and had to protect the npc dwarfs from waves of gaints. 
    Good lucks and have fun.

    The Immortal Tauren questline in WoTLK. Not so much for the quests themselves, but the wonderful and well told story that unfolded as you went through them.

    Also, though not strictly an MMO, one of the last quests in the original GW (Before it was called Prophecies). By the time undead Prince Rurick shows up the cheese meter has been pegged so long it's broke, the writers are clearly shoveling in random pages from Tropes, every time you think it can't possibly get more ludicrous it does, and yet somehow it all works.

    Or, at least, is enjoyable and memorable, which is more than I can say for 99% of the quests I've ever done.

    Asheron's Call - Aerfalle.
    Epic quest, with a lot of mechanics to figure out and beat before you even enter the final dungeon.
    It took the whole player community working together two months to figure out all the details and finally beat Lady Aerfalle. Do this nowadays, and you'll have the instant gratification crowd whining on the forums after two days.

    DAOC Epic quests that you start at level 5 and every few levels you do another. Took you all over the world as well as the RvR zones. Each quest gave you something you could use at that level and beyond. In the last quest you got an amazing set of class specific armour.

    Sort of like asking what's the best shit you've ever taken....

    Nobody can tell you because it's all the same endless repetition of the same thing over and over again, kill x number, bring X to Y is what makes up 99.9% of it.

    It all becomes routine and meaningless fast.

    Sure there is one decent quest out of 10,000 it seems.

    I've stopped reading quest texts years ago...I just can't do it anymore.

    So to answer OPs question - I think the best one was when this guy asked me to kill stuff for him, and then he asked me to kill some more stuff.... like 15 times over.

    This is clearly the best quest because it seems just about every MMO has 1000s of these.

    Might be incontinence, perhaps a visit to the doctor is in order.

    Agree 100% - most quest designers all need to go have their heads examined.

    I had a ranger so I didn't need them. But I helped my monk friend with the quest since I had tracking. Was sometime during Kunark if I remember.

    Other than the ones I've written...

    There was this mission where I had to fly around grey (dangerous) space as part of a covert 'black' operation. I wasn't given very clear instructions on how to proceed except to avoid being scanned or raising suspicion while searching for a way in to national territory, every once in a while receiving "burst crypto" comms from my point of contact.

    I just found it to be a very clever piece of narrative storytelling.

    This question made me realize that I cannot recall a single quest I really liked or enjoyed doing in an MMO/RPG.

    Maybe I am not so much into quests afterall.

    Warrior Epic Quest in EQ1 it had you go to 3 different planes and running all over the place. Great quest that required time and investment.

    EQ2 Heritage Quest The Bone Bladed Claymore
    Such an Epic quest line. Takes you all over the world like Blackburrow, Stormhold, RunnyEye
    You have to kill 1,000 sentient beings
    Was just an awesome quest. I could name a bunch of Heritage quests as favorites to be honest. I think they are the best quest chains I have gone through in any MMO

    I have no idea.  I've never read any of the quest text in any mmorpg.

    Chocobo License quest from FFXI. Or the Subjob quest. They both sucked, but you felt like you accomplished something.
