First, Kotaku wants to pass on World of Warcraft lead game designer Jeffrey Kaplan's apologies. He's very sorry about Stranglethorn Vale's 19-piece fetch fest Nesingwary's Expedition. But it's clear WoW players adore questing.
How do they know? Kaplan says that the legions of players inhabiting Blizzard's massively multiplayer online game are completing more than 16 million quests a day on average. Perhaps the more staggering figure was the time slice from July of 2007 to March of 2009, when World of Warcraft players racked up an impressive 8,570,222,426 quests.
