As a follower of the Better Questing – Standard Expansion, I was really looking forward to enjoying the new feature in 1.3 ” Wings 1.16.5 of the Minecraft.” The one thing that made me appreciate this feature was the new quest path system, or rather the lack thereof. Having gone through the whole vanilla Minecraft experience up till now, I knew that I had not enjoyed questing much at all. In fact, I had never really liked the questing system much, since the vanilla game allows you to do quests anywhere and anytime you want. So when I found out about this feature, I was really excited.
Let’s talk about the new quests for a moment. Now, as I have already said, the way the quests are organized is probably a nice change, but the questing itself has not changed that much from Vanilla Minecraft. You still have to go to the same spots to do quests, but it is now in a new way. For example, instead of heading straight to High Elf in the Undercity, you now head to the Horde Settlement in the Furbolg. The same is true for the Defias Side Trek, where the ship docks in the Wailing Winds, while the quests are moved to the Stormwind City.
This means that more effort is required to complete the quests. And it’s not just the same quests, but different ones too. That’s why it is hard to feel satisfied after doing them once. When I used to do vanilla, I felt like I knew what to do next, so it was easy to finish them. But in Better Questing – Standard Expansion, it’s kind of a let down, because it’s more complex than the vanilla version.
That is why I think the Better Questing – Standard Expansion is actually worth the money. The good thing is that it has all the content people want, and it has been made more efficient. You can still do the quests in the usual way, just with less tedious steps. However, you will get a lot more out of it.
There are some differences you may find. One is the fact that you don’t have to grind anymore in order to level up in this game. Grinding your levels in Vanilla Minecraft was one of the most common complaints about the game, which made it very frustrating for players. And it’s pretty much the same with the Better Questing. If you really think about it, the whole point of having a game is to play with your friends, and not sit at the computer doing unnecessary tasks. That’s not the case in the Better Questing – Standard Expansion, which is probably one of the reasons why it’s become so popular in such a short time.
It’s also been designed in such a way as to be balanced. As I said, there are some differences in the vanilla game, but they are nowhere near as major as they are in the BQE. The biggest problem I have with the vanilla game, is that some areas are just way too random, and it makes playing the game very boring sometimes. With the BQE, I’m almost always guaranteed an enjoyable gaming session, even if I do stumble upon some spots I shouldn’t have found before.
