That just means you didn't enjoy it, it doesn't say a thing about it's depth or complexity since you missed a good 90% of the game.

That said, when I first tried WoW I quit by level 40 as well, because a couple of months of dragging around on foot doing mindless shitty grind quests bored the hell out of me too. It's only been since the "casualisation" and "ez-mode" that's so horrified the hardcore MMO player that I tried it again and started to enjoy it.

Actually, I made it to level 60 something, but I digress.

That's the point. They don't even QUALIFY as quests. THERE IS NO DEPTH IN THE CONTENT. The same menial tasks, over and over. Boring as fucking hell. The grind changed from the old-school way of camping mobs / playing "whack-a-mole" for xp, to being an "errand boy" doing the same menial shit over and over again. You don't even have to do any exploring or investigating... just look for the assholes with the exclamation points over their heads!!! The grind changed, that's all. It's still a grind, and due to the lack of depth to these so called "quests", it was friendly enough for noobs and disguised the grind for a lot of folks. It certainly didn't disguise the grind for me. ...And to call those things "quests", makes me want to vomit.
