My daughter has recently gotten into Maple Story. She and her father had a really cute conversation comparing their experiences on their MMOs regarding quests. Her dad commiserated with her when she bemoaned the tasks that involved collecting a large number of items. He then relayed how annoying it was to collect items that drop randomly:
"I'd rather kill 20 wolf than have to give him 10 wolf pelts - in the end I have to kill twice as many to get the pelts!"
Then they discussed spawn rates - Maple Story has a higher spawn rate than World of Warcraft typically does, except for when a new expansion comes out. I guess MMOs have a lot in common with each other.
