AFR #179 – Never getting out of here

Yeah, that’s me– I’m the guy who can’t move on to the next zone because I can’t bear to drop the gray quests from my quest log.

And don’t worry, the AFR gang will be getting to Northrend soon enough (even if they have to leave Alaxia behind).


  1. The “Abandon Quest” tab does not exist in my book. =D

    • I feel a great sense of satisfaction when I achieve an empty quest list– but dropping quests or choosing not to pick up the ones that I see just feels like cheating.

  2. … Unless you are a 16 hour a day, seven day a week player, leveling with getting all the quests and achievements is crazy! On the other hand, if you play that much you probably are crazy. Lack of variety does that to people.

  3. heh… my main is my Loremaster. And rep grinder who may or may not be working on “The Exalted”… I’ll never tell. My others? Maybe… eventually… though they do all, as they come to it, do Netherwing for the best mounts in game IMO.

    • You’re a braver soul than I.
      I’ve done Loremaster once. Glad I did it, but never again. I’ve also done Netherwing once, on my way to 100 mounts. Glad I did it, but never again.

      • I have to admit, I’d probably do Netherwing on every single character just to get to the Booterang quest. If I can’t have the Katamari quest from Uldum as a daily, I at least want to be able to throw boots at recalcitrant workers when I’ve had a frustrating day! šŸ™‚

      • I’m so glad achievements are account-wide now. I’m not fond of doing the same thing over and over. Heck, I’m a knitter and when I completed a wrist warmer for a friend’s commission, I was irritated that I had to do it again so she’d have a pair! (And then there was the set of 8 identical 6-color cup sleeves I did for last Christmas, but that was a special case.)

        And on completion: the only time I’ve consciously made the choice to abandon a zone mid-quest-line and move on was when I dinged 85 and could finally move to Pandaria. I still have two Deepholm quests in my log, though…

      • Ugh. Deepholme. *Shudder* I got out of there as fast as I could.

        Cataclysm has the distinction of having two zones– Vashj’ir and Deepholme– that I found fascinating in their design and aesthetics but that I never wanted to see again.

  4. Good to know I’m not the only one that likes to complete game content. FYI I’m still in Outland also.
