You can choose to change up to 5 quests once to randomly get other quests before attempting the quests. All Quests reward 1 Arcane Symbol upon completion. Bolded quests stands for easy quests, highlighted quests in red stands for time-consuming quests and if it is neither bolded or italicised, it is not as easy but not as time-consuming.

Some Quests may tell you to go to another NPC after collecting the etc items as the nature of the quest is Item Delivery.
