Fix your quests back to original versions!

AGS has already cut down most side quests by 3/4th of their original length and somehow turned the main questlines into the most boring single player ARPG in MMORPG history.
I remember excluding certain cut scenes most mainline story quests in Rus/Jp could be played by parties of 4 and with your friends. How do you turn the mainline quests into the most boring shit you could play that literally takes 3-6 hours to do by yourself? Do I have to do the Rohendel, Yorn questlines on EVERY alt? The knowledge transfer doesn’t even seem to work. Out of all the things AGS could have done to this game they literally went out of their way to make some things just a big pain in the ass. Was it to sell power passes? I am so confused.
