Hi Wizards! It’s Friday, so you know what that means, right? RIGHT! Let’s get on with it.

Today, let’s talk about questing. If you could take one quest and improve it, which quest would it be, and what would you do? For example – The Special in Celestia. I’m a Wizard, not a sandwich artist! Sheesh! Maybe someone else could help you out? Another example - Board to Death. Wouldn't it be cool if we could actually play chess during the quest? (I know some of you have definitely suggested this before in feedback posts!)

I’m sure you all can come up with some better suggestions, I can’t wait to hear them!

Have a fiery Friday everyone!

I would change the crafting quest Ignus offers to become a Champion Crafter. All you do is just interact with stuff, while other crafting quests have you craft something to attain the next rank. I would change the quest so you actually have to craft something to become a Champion Crafter.

The lost pages events/BOX events: make new quest for the newer worlds with badges.
Halloween quests: Add new quest to add spice to Halloween.
Also, make a new quest for thanksgiving, it could be nice .
Remember, if we improve something, we need it to be useful and good, so players won't get bored of it too fast. עוד
People get bored of updates quicker than most of the people think. After maybe a month or 2 of a new world, most people are bored of it. Maybe packs would be better to update each year than to update quest lines.

How about something to help us out. For example there are times that I play late at night. None of my friends are on and I need help. I will sit on Team up for hours at times. How about if your on Team up for a certain amount of time, you automatically get a minion to help you.

I would change the quest where you fight 4 Feral Scarabs at once in Mirage (a mainline quest mind you) and remove half of them as that fight is super frustrating if you're fighting them solo.

I find it very strange that when you restore the residents of Bastion to their former selves, that everything is already under their control. It would make more sense if they were in the middle of a battle to drive the Umbra Legion out and reclaim their city. Perhaps Zaltana tells you that the Burrowers have been pushed back to the south side of the city, and you go through the door near Romo Nighteyes to help turn the tide.

I wish we could see physical movement in quests instead of the narrator saying it for everyone.

For example, "Headmaster Ambrose waves his wand over the book" - Why couldn't we just see that?

"Professor Drake shakes his head in frustration" - it would be nice to see that too!

This gives their character more of a personality!

I think adding holiday dungeons fit for specific holidays would be great. Something like the Halloween ones but one for every holiday, We have the Halloween towers and the Bunny quest (Sorry I totally forgot the guys name) but as far as I know, we don't have much for any other Holiday. Something like a "Saving Christmas" ordeal or for St Patrick's day, Help save a leprechaun by finding his gold, just funny dungeon quests. I always enjoyed Halloween and such on wiz and I feel everyone else does too. Having as much as we have for Halloween but implemented towards Christmas, Thanksgiving, St Patrick's day, etc would be amazing.

Also in my world I would like to see these dungeons dropping some kind of armor you would only be able to get at that time, you would have to farm extensively for the items, but that's what makes the game fun in my opinion. The sheer enjoyment you get when getting that last piece of Waterworks gear, Malistaire gear is so satisfying knowing that all your work payed off and you are the best of the best in terms of stats, but in this case you would be the best of the best in terms of rarity and fashion.

Just some ideas to ping pong around, nothing to out of the ordinary here.

i enjoy questing, but when i obtain a spell card like the epic card that adds 300 hp, oops let me rephrase that, it promises three hundred added hit points but only delivers two hundred, it makes me want to get home and garden, cool as questing by the way, and on that note, i would like to see all inside or outside spells and not just TCs to include water all, pollinate all, music all, magic all, and sunshine all, the pest control would need to be looked at later though. and after that, i would like very much to actually sit on one of my crafted chairs, or lie down in my bed, then i would like to go to the pavilion and hatch mounts, then i would like to go to the paint shop and color my creations as i see fit.
just a little rambling from a game fan.

There are some things i would do to improve on in the crafting area and housing. It would be absolutely wild to be able to hatch a mount! On that note, be able to dye all pets and mounts any color you want. With our own personal housing, i do hours of questing and go home and think to myself, "i wish i could actually sit on the couch, sit in a chair to read a book, go over to the food and eat, as opposed to just looking at it sitting there begging me to partake lol, sit by the fire and roast marshmellows ... mmmm. Also, years ago. you had a contest which allowed players to create gear. Now from the winners, i saw some of the most awesome designs. Why were they never even put in the game? From what i saw, cause i also submitted one, those would have been great looking for higher level players . It would be nice if we could craft a weapon for both hands to be used like they do in Mirage. How about some facial hair ideas for the guys to buy in the crown shop when they reach a certain level to show experience? How about adding a pouch to the crafting we could carry around, with certain herbs that must be gathered that help with strength and fighting like the jewels do, even earrings. Just a few ideas to start. Thanks :)

In Wysteria I would definitely up the number of leaf drops from the Tree Men.

That fershlugging quest took my life wizard 4 days to complete.

Some things I would change would be for us to stop fixing/ reparing everything like in celestia ( we are wizards not engineer's)
Another thing would be to add in some things that are more intractable or adding puzzles into the quests.
Lastly make the npc move more like Cyrus drake shaking his head in disappointment stuff like that.

Something else I would like changed is with the way quests update. For people who like to both read and listen to the story (myself being one of them) having the quest goals automatically updated can spoil what happens.

For example, in the dungeon Four Points (Aggrobah, Mirage) the main reason for being there is to negotiate a treaty between the three gangs, but since the quest goal updates to show "Defeat Loother Ray" as soon as you get close to everyone it immediately spoils the outcome of the talks in the sense that "oh one of them wants to have war rather than peace". If this were changed to only update after the dialogue has run its course then the outcome would be more of a surprise without fear of being spoiled due to the quest updating.

Basically just change it so that the quests only update after the player finishes with the dialogue rather than as soon as they get close to the NPCs.

I hear a lot of people complaining about it, so I'll speak on their behalf. Make it so that in order to complete the transcendent crafter quest in Azteca, make it so that to don't have to go to Mangrove Marsh first in order to get the actual quest to craft the Eagle War Shield.
