I saw this post in massively where they show a comment from richard bartle inviting critics to have a go at describing their favourite WoW quest:

"Go on, choose any quest from WoW and explain what it's saying. You say you can see behind the curtain: show us. I want the art, not the craft."

So the topic is: talk about your favourite quest, questline, or zone and why you love it so much. Is it the theme? The way it eases characters from one hub to the next? The atmosphere? The cute? The story?

OK, will be writing more about Howling Fjord later this week but I wanted to start by talking about how much I love one particular quest:

Best ever lead-in to an instance quest?

Not entirely the most orthodox deconstruction but here it is nonetheless.

Deconstructing Westfall

Here is my contribution to the Shared Topic. It's a deconstruction of my favorite quest chain.

The Onyxia Chain

I picked the Cipher of Damnation as my favorite quest.

Not sure this is exactly what the assignment called for, but it's my best shot:
