The Golden Lotus (I think? I’m kinda new) and the Saberstalkers were like this. You could choose to do dailies (or even a big weekly quest) for a chunk of rep OR you could grind mobs OR you could do a mixture of the two.
Imagine that! Giving players choices and options for how to best manage their own time, in and out of game!
My wife and I found a group and did the Saberstalker grind in 2 nights. We met new people in game and honestly it was one of the 2 most fun play sessions we’ve ever had in WoW.
Now we are slogging through WQ after WQ and our play sessions have turned into chores
Pathfinder + world quests have ruined the fun we once had playing wow. If Pathfinder awarded flying after 1) max level 2) story quests 3) zone exploration, and THEN you could fly around to do WQs, then perhaps it wouldn’t be so bad.
