OP  8/28/12 6:02:27 PM#1

 And what I mean by annoyed is I feel like every time i am in my "Instanced personel story quest " I am thinking about being out in the game world and what potential DE i could be missing or what valuable "exploring time " I am wasting . I know people will respond "Well you don't have to do them" but as a somewhat completionist I feel compelled to finish my story quests , Plus the rewards are very good.

 

  I guess A-net is to blame for making their game world so alive and awesome that I feel like the instancing of story quests kinds of breaks my immersion in game. Anyone feel this way ?

Well I can say that I do feel the need to go into the world and explore but the further I get in the story the more I like it.


To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

No need to feel that way, plenty of time to explore and get to those de's afterwards. It's not like your paying a sub ;)

Lol, I am 10 levels behind on my personal story...

But the point of the game is to have fun so just enjoy yourself, you can always do it later.

No not really beacuse story quests gives really great loot.

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

Playing as an asura I am finding them engaging and fun.

But then asura are just pure entertainment right through. So much comedy :)

You are annoyed at content? Sorry I just don't understand the problem.

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Well I go as far as to say, SWTOR had the way better personal story; but then, that WAS their thing. Some personal stories are better than others. It sure is not kicking me out of my shoes, but it does serve me to give my character depth and background.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

I tried, or rather cringed my way through the human storyline in the starting area during the first few BWEs. They felt like something a prebuscent teen on ecstasy would write. Needless to say I stuck to DEs/Hearts/PvP from that point forward. They made SWTOR's storylines feel like literary masterpieces, which is sad because SWTOR wasn't even good to begin with.

I honestly didn't get the fuss about SWTOR's personal story myself... it didn't impress me any more or less then GW2s.

Speaking as an asura, the scripting and voice acting in mine has been first class, often laugh out loud.

i agree asura are hillarious.. actually only voice acting and story that starts to get annoying to me is norn in some places and some of the sylvari but aside from that i'm enjoying them all.. i also like my choices in the CC actually effecting parts of my story.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

I don't force myself to do the story quests, and some times I just want to roam around or do something mroe story based.  Works out fine.

Right now i am about to choose one of the three orders and I am fairl ycurious hwo that plays out.  The carnival bit with the grizwhorls was pretty good too.  Best human story so far.

My only problem with the Story Quests is that they oftne send you with NPC companions and thus increase the amount sof mobs you face.Problem is they ignore the friendly NPCs and go straight for you necessitatign a lot of dodging,evading and ranged kiting just to stay alive.

Not a huge issue but annoyign none the less.

Ditto, I think it's one of the best in the game and really captures the feel of race perfectly. The voice acting is actually pretty decent in the Asura story as well.

Edit: as far as missing out on the DE's since they happen somewhat randomly, there is really no way to tell if you're missing out on anything or not. Besides, you can always revisit the zones later on. So just play the game and enjoy.

I enjoy the stories. I don't feel like I'm missing out of "other stuff" when I'm still doing things I like.

 

It'd be like saying "anyone feel annoyed by DEs because I'm thinking about how much WvWvW I could be doing?"

Nop, because you don't need to do the Personal Story if you want to explore, do DEs then do them. But I am enjoying the story so far up to where I am (level 22)

Really.  After so many posters in other games beaching about lack of content, someone complaining about content is a touch on the wild side.
