A short reflection on the fun of earning 12x exp in an MMO as well as the frustrating and sometimes game-breaking side effects of such a huge bonus.
MMOs are finicky, especially when they try and work major narrative elements into themselves. "I am a hero who defeated a dragon and saved the world" says I as I slowly fly in a circle looking for ore to mine so I can build a dumb thing I don't need. Because that's what a hero does. "I killed the dragon. Did you know that?" "Nope. Can you kill them six kobolds for me? I don't like them. They smell funny." I AM THE CHOSEN ONE!
