its the same as any other questing system except square doesnt pretend your doing something new today. in xiv you do a 'gather 5 coconuts' quest over and over every day. in any other game you do a 'gather 5 peanuts' quest today, a 'gather 5 apples' quest tomorrow, a 'gather 5 cherries' quest the day after and so on. square just chose not to insult our intelligence by disguising 1 quest as 100.
Sometimes it is nice to do different things, kill different mobs, etc.
Sometimes it is nice to kill 5 rabbits today, but yet tomorrow, kill bears until I get 5 bear pelts, and the day after maybe they want me to kill 10 skeletons and pour acid on their bones to permanently destroy them.
Variety is good.
Repeatedly doing the same quest over and over again, makes it look like another (in)famous game's "Daily Quest" system, and I tend to get bored of Dailies very quickly for the same reason.
At least they are trying to mask it with Random Dailies, but even at that, it still gets old after awhile.
Still though, a little
variety would be nice.
Endlessly Grinding mobs (FFXI), though, was not fun in any sense of the word. After the 20th kill or so, its "Ugh... how many more of these do I have to kill? 5,000 of them? Oh God, shoot me now" Edited, Oct 3rd 2010 8:03pm by Lyrailis
