The other night, a friend of mine took to Twitter to express her displeasure over an EverQuest II
mission. "I have to do something called Jenni's Stained Pants
," she said, nonplussed. "This may be the most insulting quest I've ever done."
While the actual mission turned out to be more benign than she'd anticipated from the title, I could relate. There have been so many quests in MMOs that aren't just beneath my stature but outright mocking my status as a hero. How many times have we had to pick up poo on the whims of a developer? Or pluck flowers for Elves? Or run extremely pointless errands because an NPC has a deadly case of fat butt and doesn't want to stop watching Honey Boo Boo?
So let it out today: What's the most insulting quest you've ever done? Vent! Lance that wound! Rebuff those devs who think it's OK to make a monkey out of you!
