I believe that there would be more of a sense of challenge in PvE quests if they were not all so boringly easy. That is to say, nearly all of them can be completed by walking into an area, blasting everything in site, picking up the prize, and walking back. There's no need to spend time figuring out a strategy, or wondering about the best use of one's skills, or any such thing. Even at level + 5 (I purchased an XP disabler to make quests more challenging) I can stomp on red and orange creatures the way I used to stomp on green and blue.
Today, I created a new character. I immediately bought and equipped an XP disabler. I went through the entire introduction - including the instance at the end - at first level and emerged in the world with 0 XP. And it was not due to luck or skill. The game is just that easy.
