    Annoying Frostbluff Quest Starter

    I don't know about anyone else but I find the Frostbluff quest bestowal message extremely annoying. It is on all my characters kind of like a plague.

    Don't get get me wrong. I think the new quest bestowal system is great. My helmet is off to the devs on that one. No problem with Frostbluff either. Fun and relaxing at times. What I don't want is that annoying message when I'm riding down orcs in the Sutcrofts. There should be a way to get rid of the message on the UI without canceling the quest or changing the automatic quest bestowal option.

    Any thoughts?

    Canceling the quest doesn't work. I have a lot of alts and on a couple of them I'm not planning on running the yule fest. Everytime that introductory Yule Fest quest pops up, I cancel it. Fifteen minutes later it pops up again. It is a little bit irritating when I'm trying to knock out a few other quests.

    Good grief can't even be cancelled. Plague analogy seems pretty good.

    I rearranged my UI so that the Quest Starter is above my Quest Log. It's easier to ignore there and less likely to cover something important.

    Good idea.

    I had done that out of desperation. Still it would be nice if they would give us a way ...

    Glad it's Gone

    I, too, rearranged my UI to minimize how much the message covered. But it was still glaring and still unwanted. Hope the next one shows up in a smaller package.

    There are a lot of these auto bestow quests currently in game. The pre Rohan regions do not seem to have a lot. The auto bestow functionalitywas something recently added. One new quests like the two Frostbluff quests use this functionality in the older regions.

    I sure would be nice if the icon size is similar to an alert icon. The Auto Bestow UI element is rather large and the huge bright gold ring is hard to ignore.
    Unless stated otherwise, all content in this post is My Personal Opinion.

    Just move it to a non-annoying part of the screen using (I think it's) Ctrl+\ (moving the UI).

    The Yule fest Remote quest is a "good" version -- not like the previous festival quests.

    If you accept the quest, you immediately get IXP and a map... and the icon goes away -- Until you log in "the next day".
