- What are the top things (up to three) that make you want to do a quest?
They make the game feel like a game rather than a chore, are sometimes challenging (challenge in good measure = fun) and offer good rewards, sometimes crucial ones.
- What are the top things (up to three) that discourage you from completing a quest
Post 99 grind( looking at menaphos quests here) and right now on this account: level requirements.

- What sort of rewards would you like from the Quest Point Shop?
Quest related stuff like upgrades to korasi's sword, to sunspear, to fairy rings (maybe a portable fairy ring?)

- One of the things we've been discussing in the studio is whether or not someone with max Quest Points should be able to unlock everything on release? Alternatively, should they have to decide which rewards they value the most, and only be able to unlock further rewards as more quests are released. I'd love to hear how you feel about this, and get a bit of a dialogue going. With the rate at which new quests are being released, yes, quest capers should be able to unlock almost everything, master quest capers should unlock everything)

- What type of player are you? (PvM, PvP, Quester, Skiller, Completionist, Social) (You can choose more than one) quester first, everything except pvp second.
- What is your current number of quest points? On main account which i gave up 395, on this account 334.
- How long have you been playing RuneScape? Since the very beginning in 2001, with breaks of a few years some time in the middle.
- What are your combat level and skill total
101 combat and 1880 total

- What are the top things (up to three) that make you want to do a quest?

• Having the time (I prefer long quests - I just like to do a quest all the way through, and rarely get time when I don't have to be multitasking).
• It being there (if I'm in the mood to quest - I won't waste the experience on times when I'm not 100% enthusiastic ~ you only get to do something for the 1st time, once.. it's never the same on repeats).
• The quest involving orbs.
(Rune Guardian, and Gower Quest had them as scenery, Creature of Fenkenstrain+Garden of Tranquility gives extra lore, via the Ring of Charos (a), and ROTM + related Fremmy Saga give some extra depth to the information.)

- What are the top things (up to three) that discourage you from completing a quest?

• My computer overheating (I like to play Quests on Max graphics, with sound on, and my computer overheats within 20 minutes of doing that, even with fps restricted to lowest, so takes a while to cool it down).
• Being busy.
• Having other things to do (Mostly Minigames, in any free time).


- What sort of rewards would you like from the Quest Point Shop?

• Space to store things in, to be honnest..
• Some more lore behind certain things in the game:
~RC altars, the different types of orbs (there are Green, Yellow, Purple, Lilac, and Turquoise ones - the latter was a bug, though, but even so..) and what they do, how the pockets are formed, and what sustains them.
~More lore info, in general, about the different Minigames (some have pretty tenuous lore, or are ambiguous). Some tie-in rewards would be good, too (more content types that are mutually supportive).

Well, I'd prefer it if it didn't immediately unlock everything, but unlocking a decent selection would be good. Having to chose which things to unlock, is always nice, too.
If everything is unlocked at once, that would also mean that it would require constant updates (which would be nice, but puts the content in a dangerous position, where it's likely to go unseen to, and eventually end up dead content, which will be because it isn't updated, but will be used to justify not updating it.. and it will end up caught in that cycle. I wouldn't want to leave it at the risk of being the last thing to get updated to fit a new quest, and then keep getting cut, due to lack of time.

Make sure you future-proof content, for when you're no longer the Mod assigned to it, or no longer work there, as once that happens, content often gets left to stagnate, to the point where Devs think it's too alien to them, or not worth saving.




- What type of player are you?

Gopper, Minigamer, Quester, Social.

- What is your current number of quest points?

383, 386, 383, and 298 on HC.

- How long have you been playing RuneScape?
Since Feb 01, but with breaks when working abroad, or too busy.


- What are your combat level and skill total?
138 x 3, and 116 on HC (various others lower, not sure of lvls).
2,724 - 2734 - 2719 - Just under 2k, atm, on HC (changes too regularly); most of the rest are under 500.



End Note:
I play quests with the screen zoomed right in, and panned down to level (as close to 1st person as possible - means you can't see much, at all), on high detail; in quest mode, I do not use:
• Map
• Minimap
• Guides
• G.E.
• Telleports (can use Spirit trees, Ships, Gliders, or Fairy rings, but prefer not to)
• Run (with a few exceptions)
• Much combat gear (usually use what's in my profile pic, but sometimes have to use food, pots, or upgrade, if forced).
