I wasn't all that far, I just got annoyed because I bought gear and then the quest wouldnt let me continue because I lacked gold.

You don't need gold for quests. That's not a thing.

As for the "MMO quests," those are just the notice board quests that you basically pick up and then forget about until they solve themselves. The game has main quests, side quests, and then notice board quests. The main quests are the story ones that move you forward in the game, side quests also have a story but they're optional, and notice board quests are really just you going up to a board and grabbing 5 or 6 quests at once that are things like "Kill 30 rabbits." The notice board quests generally have the smallest rewards but considering you tend to just finish them without even meaning to, it's not a bad bonus. There's no limit to how many quests you can hold at a time so just grab all the message board quests and go on with your day. The only exception are notice board escort quests, which you might as well not even do until you have a fast travel point unlocked for the exact spot they want to go to.

The notice board quests aren't particularly interesting but to be honest I don't even think about them because it's just mechanical to pick them up when I visit an inn and then just continue doing what I was doing before.

Why refund it out of curiosity? It's a great game and the PC version is the best.

Simply because i was dumb enough to not realise that its 60% off on steam right now instead of buying the game for full price on the HB store haha

Doesn't some/all of the money from store purchases go to charity like with the bundles? You could've claimed it as a charitable donation on your taxes (assuming you have to pay any) and saved money that way.

Pretty sure you can't, as you receive a product/service for your "donation".

Was that not a quest? Idk, can't remember. I think that was it anyways, was about to finish it, but then it continues and I needed 30k I just spent. Maybe it's some quest that doesn't expire. IDK, i'll give it a chance again sometime anyways.

Yes, you need 30k gold to finish that quest. I think the quest immediately fails itself(if you haven't finished it) if you progress the story(finishing the quests the armored guy gives you), although I'm not sure about this.

You need to complete this quest anyway to unlock the next quest that will give you the Gold Idol, which you'll need if it's your first playthrough.

Basically. Force yourself to not be an OCD timewaster and ignore the OCD timewaster quests that pad out the game. The first couple of times I played the game I felt like I had to do every single quest and felt annoyed when I didn't do them all, then I realized that so many quests are just stupid timewaster crap. Pick up all the quests you can but then look closely at them, look at their EXP/gold/loot rewards and decide if they are worth doing at all. A ton of them are just not worth the time or effort, but others are because you'll get a bunch of EXP or a cool item, and it can be easy to overlook these quests because at first glance they look identical to the "kill 100 rats to get 500 gold" quests. You just have to prioritize and you'll enjoy the game way more. And of course keep in mind that the main game is a very easy prelude to the real game, which starts at Bitterblack Isle.

Is it annoying that they filled the game up with so many pointless quests? Kind of, but the rest of the game is so much goddamn fun that I stopped caring a long time ago.

Ah, you got me- I totally forgot that you can't finish that side quest without giving away 30k gold, because you get 40k gold in exchange for doing it anyway. You can always just shuffle around items in your storage to get 30k gold though since that's an incredibly trivial amount. As for the quest being needed, it's only for completion purposes. If anything, getting the Gold Idol allows you to kinda 'sequence break' when it comes to your gear because it just unlocks much more powerful weapons earlier than usual. Well, or it lets you buy more pretty lady clothes. Depending on what you do with the idol.

I think the main issue is that someone starting the game might not realize that those are just extra tasks you can do or ignore. Even if you're an achievement chaser, you can get all of the game's achievements/trophies without doing more than a handful of those quests. I don't think it's a bad thing at all that the game compensates you for doing some menial tasks like killing a bunch of rabbits, since the only reward is gold and experience and nothing is gated behind you doing that task. The main thing is just to realize that there's no other point to doing those quests and to not really pay attention to them if you find them tiresome.

You have to make a lot of charitable donations before it even starts to make a dent in your taxes. One purchase from humble bundle doesn't do squat.

If you didn't donate at least $300 over the course of the year, it's not even worth mentioning...and I'm pretty sure you can't count the entire purchase price of the game since the entire price isn't going to charity... AND you would need to get some kind of receipt showing that you made the donation to make it all legit.

SO yeah, I don't think anyone is claiming Humble bundle purchases on their taxes and "saving money".

I can't remember but I think those donations go under itemized deductions and if you do that then you need enough itemized deductions to make up for not having the standard deduction.
