Definition of profitable quest[edit]

Aren't all quests profitable in some sense? What makes Material Girl more profitable than any other?  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 19:56, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

I've looked at the notes added to the only two quests in the category and it seems to me that what they have in common is that they are useful for farming. Other quests along these lines would be Hungry Devourer or A Meeting With the Emperor (useful for VQing). So, I'd like to propose that we delete the current list/category and start over, using category:farmable quests or category:quests useful for farming (subtly different, but both would cover a useful subset of quests).  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 20:04, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Expansion[edit]

Should we include quests extremly useful for other things (besides farming), such as Zinn's Trial for cartography? --Falconeye 22:48, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

No. (1) How many such quests are there? (2) How does it help to organize them on this page? (3) diluting a definition is almost always a bad way of organizing things. Quests useful for carto are best organized under the carto articles.
A useful for farming quest implies/suggests easy repeatability, which Zinn's Trial lacks; it can be only be initiated once per toon (even though, at present, the game apparently still allows veterans to piggy back). – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 23:08, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
