Questing is the mainstay of all MMOs but The Secret World has changed the traditional paradigm...at least a little. In our second installment of our Review in Progress, we take a look at questing in The Secret World. Read on!
MMO players love to talk quests. After all, questing is the biggest part of any MMO and is further expanded by gear acquisition, lore expansion and more.
