those WoW quests like Gnomebliteration are few and far between. but that's still more than most MMO's are doing to make quests interesting and while objectives of normal quests are always the same at least the writing is good or funny(IMO).Kickable
At least they're there though. Even despite the one-off nutty quests some whole zones are worth doing just for the storyline that runs through the various quests you get. Having well planned and written chain quests really helps pass the time.
