After I got done laughing, I marveled at what is ultimately number two on this list — attention to detail. Let me explain what I mean. Someone creates a quest, and it has a logical progression of steps. The logical response would have been to head to my faction's shrine and take a portal as suggested. The fact that someone had the forethought and presence of mind to not only predict that some players would be peculiar enough to speak to Tak-Tak and expect a flight, but also write a response just in case someone decided to take that highly illogical option is nothing short of genius.
