Blizzard designer Jeffrey Kaplan claimed at GDC last week that WoW players embark on a total of 16 million quests per day.

Further, from July 2007 to March 2009, 8,570,222,426 quests were undertaken in the game.

Over 2,600 quests were included in the original game, with the Burning Crusade doubling the figure to 5,300. Wrath of the Lich King put it up to 7,650.

What’s wrong with you all? Thanks, Kotaku.

    If only they did the quest that involved clicking log out cancelling their subscription and then deleting the game from their hard drives.

    “If only they did the quest that involved clicking log out cancelling their subscription and then deleting the game from their hard drives.”

    Why? If they enjoy the game, they enjoy the game.

    Enjoy :P more like obsession, Do daily quests everyday to grind rep in order to get either some gear, patterns or mounts. Grind heroics to get tokens to use to buy gear. Grind raids to get tier 7 gear.

    Its not really a fun game at max level you just get obsessed with getting all the top gear and trinkets.

    “Its not really a fun game at max level”

    13 million people seem to think otherwise.

    13 million people are rep grinding and being obsessed by gear. Already pointed out the game at max level is just an obsessive grind to get the best of everything in the game. I’ve played it long enough to know the kind of players you get on WoW.

    You have the PvP side of things which is broken and then you have the PvE side of things which you repeat over and over again till you get the best gear.

    13 million players to me just means 13 million obsessed addicts. Who need :P to click the off button and go outside.
