Questgivers

The Questgiver
The questgiver offers you a specific quest in return for a reward. Questgivers can be identified by several different ways. If you have .tooltips turned on, they will display "Quest" under their name when you mouse over them. If you open their paperdoll, they will have "Questgiver" after their name. If you run by them, they will typically ask for help. Finally, the majority of questgivers are dressed as in the picture but special RP questgivers can be dressed differently.

Questgivers can be found anywhere. Those who are in towns typically offer simpler quests than those that are found out in the wild and may require a difficult task.

When you have found a questgiver, they will typically respond to "quest" (no need for their name). If they do not respond to "quest", then it may take another special trigger word to get them to respond. These questgivers are typically harder than the others and require special thought on how to activate them, usually an item that is around them or a clue in their greeting.

Once you have accepted the quest, you can access the quest information through your paperdoll by clicking the "Quest" button or by using the dot command .quest. You will be able to view up to 5 quests, see the rewards that are offered, the time left if the quest is a time-limited one and delete the quest if you no longer want to complete it. There is also a limit of 5 quests you can have at any time.


Notes about Questgivers

  • If you have a quest that requires returning an item, drop the item on the same questgiver.
  • If you have a quest that requires you to observe an item, use your invocation skill then return to the questgiver and say the trigger word again to finish the quest.
  • Some questgivers require their quest to be done within a certain time.
  • If you can not finish the quest, you can remove the quest from your quest log by deleting it.
  • Some questgivers may have a resting period after handing out a quest and this resting period may affect just you or everyone who attempts to do the quest. If you say the trigger word and the NPC responds with a Everything is fine, then someone else has recently done the quest and you will have to return another time.

Events

The Eventmaster
Event NPCs (or Event Masters) are special NPCs that handle a timed scripted event. They can be recognized by having "Event Master" in their name, such as Torgoth the Event Master or dressed all in red as in the picture.

Events are not always free. They can require a small fee and that is usually gold but can be other things. You can ask the eventmaster for help to see what they will accept and how many of the item to go. In most cases, you can simply drop the stack on them and they will return anything that is left over. Once the fee has been collected, you can now start the event anytime.

Start the event by saying 'event' or 'quest' to the event master. Usually, they will give you enough time to decide if you want to participate in the event. If you do not want to participate in the event, simply move away from the event master and you will not be included in the event. Your fee will not be returned.

Since these are scripted and timed events, you will have to perform some sort of task. Some tasks can be completed by a group of people while others will only allow one person. However, even though only one person can do the task, others usually are allowed to join in and help. Most events have a time limit of 1 hour.

Listen to them carefully to understand what to do.

Once the event is over and you are successful at completing it, each participating person will be awarded a prize. These prizes are similar to what is given for guild events. In addition, there is a 5% chance that you will be given one of the new mounts. It is up to you to be able to tame it though!


What is the difference between guild events and event masters?

The main difference is the prizes. Because guild events require points, they have double the loot tables that event masters have. In addition, guild events offer a greater number of prizes, special prizes not found anywhere else and triple the chance of a rare mount (given in ticket form instead of spawned beside you to tame).
