It's calculated properly, but doesn't map to reality in WoW. I'd say
that, from these 3000 quests, you probably have 1000 alliance-only
quests, 1000 horde-only quests, and 1000 that are common.

As alliance, I levelled on quests two characters. Up to level 35, I
didn't do any common quest between these two characters. That was a
conscious decision, I focused entirely on areas I never played with
my first character, to see what these were. As level increase, it's
more and more difficult, but there's still quests I haven't done the
first time around. I've exhausted the variety however - if I were to
level a third character alliance side, I would probably be unable to
find quests I haven't done, except starting areas (up to level 10)

As a rough guess, I'd say a character probably does 1200-1500 quests
