Are you going to read all the quest text during your first play through?

I myself will but I was interested if other people will do the same.

    I'd like to think that I am, but lets be honest I'm not.
  • neomirneomir Member, Braver of Worlds
    I am hoping during Alpha i can enjoy the story line of the quests especially the initial quests without feeling rushed because i want to level up quickly. Generally my first play through i try to read as much as i can but end up skipping. A lot depends on how interesting the quest lines are.

    I usually do the first time I experience them. As I have A1 access I'll probably read them during the test phases but for release skip through the early quests.

    My first character will read through every quest, search for each and every chest, dive into all puddles and ponds and forge everlasting bonds.

    As there will be no quest markers to mindlessly follow it might pay to do some reading. Though I do read the quests on my first run through quest marker or not.

  • I always read the quest text my first time around.

  • elfelf Member, Braver of Worlds
    Of course I'm going to read thru everything! I will also talk to every NPC that I am able; it's just my curious nature. I'll explore as much as I can, too, and uncover my fog of war.

    Also remember, what you will be seeing in Alpha and Beta is a slice of the content, you won't be able to experience everything.

    Plus, what you experience on your Alpha server may not be the same as what you experience on your live server given how the Nodes develop.
  • shkevishkevi Member, Braver of Worlds
    Yes going to read everything ! Alrdy going to play 18 hours a day at launch, just aswell make that 19
  • wanderingmistwanderingmist Member, Founder
    During testing I will definitely be reading through everything, mostly to make sure all the quest text is written correctly. After that, when the game is live I will only read quest lines that interest me or are important to the main storyline (if there is a main story line).
  • I think I will c: we'll have to see how interesting it is though~!

    I think I'll do my best to read as much quest text as I can, though I'm used to it being pretty useless whether you do it or not
    I like t-shirtdresses and MMO's

    Also it's all ogre

    Unless something core has changed they plan for everyone to read, a lot. They just don't have the scratch budgeted to do voice acting and have been clear from early on that they wanted to "make MMOs great again" by returning to those old school roots. Will there be an element of "ffs, not a fetch and carry quest again" that makes your eyes roll back in your head? Sure, but the early days of giddy glee and pie-in-the-sky promises that populated 2016 hopefully haven't been crushed under the weight of development and angry, trollish fanpandas who have tried to take them from their original dream.

    I do try to read every quest text but if they are badly written then I'm just going to skip them

    I just hope they had a /typo command so I can report bad text.
    I would also like a /feedback command to give direct comments about things in game.

    Only if they manage to stay relevant / interesting to me. If at any point it gets disappointing or repetitive I will lose interest and start skipping.

    I will read all the law text but doubt I will read all the save npcx from npcy text unless it turns out to be really compelling.

    I'll read any main story quests, and enough of side quests to get an idea of what I need to do, I'm really hoping there isn't going to be a lot of questing UI elements that tell exactly where to go and force some level of reading.

    Yes, there will be a good amount of lore and such that may not appear until AOC is live, Steven has stated numerous time that he wants to keep as much lore and such under wraps as long as possible. There is also the fact that once live your server will develop differently to the test phases and as such different quests may populate according to racial influence.

    I will because I like lore. But if its all "please kill these 5 wolfs and bring me their pelts because of x reason I will tune out pretty quickly. Sometimes I do tune out and all this cool stuff starts happening and I get confused. So I definitely will be paying attention at first at least. Btw that makes me think what will the first quest or 30 min of gameplay be? Will it be a long cinematic(which could be really, I think the lich king cinematic opening was great) or a quest that hopefully isn't kill 5 of x. Maybe it could be something related to the great terror that drove them away in the first place.
  • ravudharavudha Member
    Yes if:
    1) It's necessary to complete quests
    2) Text may contain hidden information for secret quests

    I always say to myself that I should and will. Although that probably will end the very same day :#

    In every MMO I read all quests the first playthrough. After that, I press E or F to get to the point.

    You joke but there are people who should read it.
  • zomnivorezomnivore Member, Braver of Worlds
    If I don't read the quests, they just become busy work. I want to enjoy the game.

    Also this is an entire new ip, no reason not to read the quests unless I know 100% that they're just filler content and don't have any actual information about the world.

    I mean not every quest is going to be important, it will be about making you care about a character, but we'll see if they matter to the world I guess.
