Edwin, maybe because it takes so long, you mostly do it in the beginning of the game and it can be very hard if you don't have a shield of Balduran?
It's not really a quest but I really really hate the first dungeon where you wake up when you start a new game. (did it three times sofar, but I really hate it)
I like the riddles you get in various quests the best.

I'm with Chrissy: the prison break in the beginning is tedious. It was great the first time through but I found it annoying the second time through..

Hated: As the two who have spoken...err.. posted before, the first dungeon (maybe because we do it so many times Image ) Is REALLY annoying.
Second hated: The pirate island (I forget the name now) boring to the bone.

Loved: Windspear Hills, Unseing Eye and Planar Sphear.

Jaheira's curse. What is that all about? Truely pointless IMHO. Image

Best so far, Windspear Hills (which I usually do fairly early in Chapter 2 - a good challenge without being impossible - and great treasure/experience). Image

The Trademeet/Druid Grove quest. Navigating that Druid grove is tedious.

Saw this topic coming up once more - just wanted to bring this to the top since it has interest.

I do not like the Druid Grove quest. Its really, really, really, really, really, stupid in my opinion.

I like the Temple of Amuanator (sp?) quest lots. The pathetic voice of the Shade lord spoiled it for me, however.

I also like the circus quest. Getting into "winged elf" arguments with the ogreized Aerie was hilarious for me the first time.

Favorites: Umar Hills. Nice open area. Easily resolvable subquests in town with a challenging scenario once you hit the temple as a starting-out party.

Also Lehtinan and Hendak at the Copper Coronet. Quickly resolved, with many options to role play your character (sly, uprighteous, or completely apathetic).

Attacking the Shadow Thief Guild house. Good romp and challenge. A bit more walking/navigating though.

Attacking Vampire Lair second time.

Cernd's personal quest. You know he's a loser, now you REALLY get to see him as a loser deadbeat dad. One ending (which is supposed to be "bad") has a really funny journal entry.

Disliked: Unseeing Eye. Too much back and forth when done the long way. But it gave me my first "holy crap" reaction when I met my first beholder ever in the game.

Druid grove. No explanation needed.

Whats so bad about Cernd? He has high wisdom and at level 13 he can transform into a greater wearwolf! But his dexterity is that of a.... a.... a Horse!!

(Thats a good one)

Why Fight when you can run???

Favorite quest - Windspear Hill, because of the Red Dragon and the holy avenger.

Most satisfying moments - Eyeless cult beholder dungeon without the shield of baldurian or the cloak of mirroring.
- anything relate to the main plot.

Hated quests - none yet, still in chapter 6

My favorite would be...
The paladin stronghold quests, since they're nice and fun (a little annoying going to Umar Hills all the time but still, how often do you meet Ettins in this game?)
My least favorite...
Planar Sphere, my first time through (as cleric/mage (BAD combo for PC)) I had to rest like 8 times in the sphere and I never managed to kill the Tanar'ri so I dropped the game. Hey I was a beginner!
Most annoying...
Limited Wish Quest, all that running around... but I like the boomerang dagger.

I quite liked the Planar Sphere.

Those Halfling groups were pretty nasty and hard to deal with, especially the last group, and then the Demons! Crikey, that was interesting.

I ran into the strongest demon first, and used up all my remaining summon spells - fire elemental, some bears, and two nymphs. Then, I had Jan cast as many spells as he could get off, starting with Haste & Greater Malison. Most of my characters only seemed to be able to hit with critical hits. The best attack was Anomen's Bolt of Glory, for 40 damage in one go.

By the end of that demon, most of my characters had heavy damage and I had a single nymph left.

The funny thing was, I then found the second demon, started to run away, using the nymph as decoy, when the nymph successfully cast Hold on the Demon. I rushed back and clobbered him in about 20 seconds without taking any additional damage. Awesome!

On the third demon, the one with heaps of Imps and Mephits with him, I had to do a lot of running away, taking out his underlings with missiles as I ran. I had a couple of spells left including invisibility, but I had to reload a couple of times to get through it.

I enjoyed the Kangaxx & Twisted Runes quest the most, because I completed them all in Chap. 2, (well, after 30 game reloads Image )

Ust'Natha was a bore. Nothing except the Solaufein quests and the Deirex thing. I expected a great and interesting city like from all the drow stories I read, but Ust'Natha was soooo empty.

And like the rest of you, I'm tired with the starting dungeon.
