- This article is about quests which reward XP. For the spell card, see Quest (ability). For the Quest system before November 2020, see Quest/2013-2020 system.
A quest in Hearthstone refers to a specific action or objective that the player can perform or achieve in order to receive a reward. The rewards are typically given in XP, and serve as one of the primary means of acquiring gold and Rewards Track rewards. Some non-repeatable quests offer other rewards, such as card packs, arcane dust or even legendary cards.
Quests come in three different forms:
- Daily quests are given out each day, with a maximum of 3 available at any time.
- Weekly quests are given out each week, with a maximum of 3 available at any time.
- Legendary quests are given out periodically.
Quests can be viewed in the Journal.
In addition to the array of quests on offer, players are also awarded XP for playing games. For more details, see Rewards Track#Reward XP.

Daily and weekly quests
Daily and weekly quests are given to players once per day and three per week respectively, and represent the majority of quests available to players. To begin receiving quests, new players must complete Introducy quest
Quests can be viewed in the Journal, by clicking the quill icon () at the bottom left of the main menu and moving the exclamation mark tab. This shows the quest's name, objective, and reward. Quests are also presented to the player upon logging in.
Players can only have 3 daily quests and 3 weekly quests active at any time. Completing a quest will remove it from the list in the Quest log, making room for another. If a player has three quests and doesn't complete any of them (i.e. the Quest log is completely filled), they will not receive a new daily quest for the next day. While the two quest sections have an additional fourth slot, this is only used for legendary quests.
Most of quest progress can be made in games in these following modes:
- Play mode (both Casual and Ranked)
- Tavern Brawls (any type, even Single-player)
- Friendly Challenges
Gaining daily and weekly quests
A fresh daily quest is granted to each player every day if an empty quest slot is available. A new set of up to three weekly quests are also made available every Monday. Additionally, once per day, the player is allowed to choose and replace one quest with a new and different quest.
- Getting new quests
Quests are awarded at 00:00, determined by region. This is often referred to as the "quest reset" or "reset time". The Americas region is set to PST; the Europe region set to CET; and the Asia region set to Hongkong/Taiwan time. Player reports suggest that the reset time changes to match daylight saving time during the summer months. There will be a countdown timer for the next quest to appear, which occupies the most-right empty slot.
Once the reset time has passed, players with less than 3 quests become eligible to be awarded a new quest, regardless of when players are in game or not.
Progress cannot be made on such quests until they have been added to the quest log and revealed to the player. Therefore, players awaiting a new quest while in game menus are advised to log out and back in again after the reset time, in order to activate it before resuming play.
- Players can choose to re-roll up to 1 quest each day by clicking the in the corner of its plaque in the Quest Log, immediately receiving a different, random quest in its place.
- If no is present in the Quest Log, re-rolls are not possible again until the next day.
- The player can replace one Daily quest and one Weekly quest each day.
- Any quest may be selected for re-rolling.
- An empty slot cannot be "re-rolled" - a real quest is always lost, so there is no way to use this process to increase the number of new quests, only to change which quests are active.
- All progress on a quest is erased when it is re-rolled; the next time the same quest is randomly assigned to the player, it will start with no progress.
- While players may be assigned the same quest more than once over the course of their Hearthstone play, they will never be assigned a duplicate of a quest they are already on. This is true whether the quest is a re-roll replacement, or a new quest filling an empty slot.
- Players are unable to accumulate daily quests beyond the maximum of 3. If a player already has 3 quests when the reset time is reached, the potential new quest will simply be lost; even if the player completes 2 or 3 quests prior to the next quest reset, they will still only receive a single new quest at that point.

- Similar to the Friendly Feud event, conceding requires the conceding player to have 15 HP or below, or both players have passed 10 turns or more; otherwise, the rewards will not be granted.
- Does not count damage caused by fatigue or the opponent's sources.
- Friendly Challenges are not counted
- Only counts the base cost of the card, not how much mana you played it for.
- Quests that require you to play cards with specific abilities only count cards played from hand, and do not count abilities that are granted by effects or other cards. Cards summoned, put into play or equipped by other effects likewise also do not count. For example, You Shall Not Pass! counts only minions with Taunt that are played from the hand, and not minions with Taunt that is granted from Battlecries such as Twilight Guardian, or from other cards such as Sunfury Protector or Ancestral Healing.
- Can only be completed if the player with the quest issued the challenge.
- Can be completed by watching a player win in spectator mode, in any game mode, including Solo Adventures and Friendly Challenge.

- Guaranteed one every week.
Legendary quests are attainable only for some short periods of time. Most of them celebrated the release of new content or special events.
These quests appear with a flash aura and cannot be rerolled. However, they do not occupy the daily and weekly quests' slots. Starting from Patch 184.108.40.206601, these quests can be abandoned, also known as removed completely.
This article will only list quests that are currently available. For more information, see the side bar Quest at the top of this article.
These quests are part of the game's introductory experience, and unlike other unique quests are awarded to the player in advance. The quest series is designed to direct new players to explore the game, forming an extended tutorial.
