You know what really grinds my gears?
Jump quests. Ohhh man.
So I was PQing today, and after missing about five times in a row (omg leder nub cliker!!@@@@), I was thoroughly ticked off and decided to call it quits. Didn’t feel like training, though – plus, the only place where I actually get somewhat decent exp is STDs, and finding a channel was nearly impossible at that time of the day. But I was at 30% – almost a third of the way away from level 46, and level 16 haste. Haaaaste. Mmm.
Well, the only other way of getting exp would be quests. -cue creepy horror movie music-
The exp rewards from all those quests wouldn’t be enough to level me up, but at least I’d cool down a bit, so that I wouldn’t blow up at the next person to beg me for corn chips.
After I’d finished what I thought were all the quests in Ludi available at my level, a quick check of my quest list informed me otherwise. There was one left. Jump quest. Craptastic. Well, there was a chance of getting a 10% shoe jump scroll by finishing it. Those sold for about 900k, didn’t they? Not too shabby.
So I ran over to the toy factory and attempted to do the jump quest.
By the time I’d been kicked out of the map (I ran out of time), I’d succeeded in irritating my friends by spamming random letters into buddy chat, as well as breaking my caps lock, tab, 1, and 2 keys. Which wouldn’t be that big of a deal if I didn’t spend close to $100 a year on new keyboards.
Yeah, I kinda have anger issues.
There aren’t any words in the English language that can describe my loathing for jump quests. I remember spending five hours on one of Shumi’s quests on my first character at level 2x. Five FUDGING hours. dfjkghdfjkfhdfhd. And I still didn’t finish it. >____>
Since then, I’ve pretty much avoided jump quests like the plague.
So, MMOT-ers, I ask you…
Have you had a worse experience with JQs? Are they really impossible? Are you actually good at them? If so… what’s the secret?
Or am I simply jump quest challenged?
