What Christof said is a nice example of why over-rewarding quests are bad. :mrgreen:

First, I agree that _some_ quests are over-rewarding. But some quests are also under-rewarding.
Second, I fully agree with making quest rewards hidden and random. But this would require the implementation of my third point:
Thirdly, I do agree with whomever said that the Imms should check all the quests and redo the ones that need it, possibly subcontracting it out to experienced questers, giving them $DD for their troubles. This way, not only would typos be fixed, but also new, appropriate, random, hidden rewards could be set.
In closing, if anyone is going to say that I'm dumb and I don't know what I'm talking about, please do so in a civilized manner. It took me a while to logically organize all my points, so act civilized, even if you're telling me that I suck. Thanking you so much.

Also, if it was completely random, that could cause an even worse problem since all quests would pretty much give the same chance for rewards, which means there would be no point to doing the harder quests.

3 pracs for first class.
4 pracs for second class.
6 pracs for third class.
9 pracs for fourth class.
No cap for archon. (9-12)
This would still allow first classers to get upward of 3000 practices in their first class, which is still insanely more than anyone would need, but, they'd still be allowed to do it. As it is now, they can already get 2-2.5 times that much at the current reward system. Second classers can easily get just as much in 8-900 quests. Third class is already somewhat capped at 6 pracs, I rarely ever see many much higher than that. There's no real problem with fourth class either, and archon doesn't need a cap, period.
There could be some exceptions for this rule - maybe exclude it from Keep. As all the quests there are in NPK or CPK, the quest rewards could be allowed to reflect that. Maybe a 1.25x increase in reward allowed for doing those kinds of quests. Other than that, I don't see any reason why first or second classers should be able to get the same or more practices than an archon by doing a MUCH simpler task because they're a lower level.
