A quest is a task given to a player character that yields a reward when completed. Most quests are given by an NPC (non-player character). However, some quests can come from right-clicking signs (usually the wanted poster type), reading scrolls or documents, opening containers, using certain looted items (which will say “Begins a quest” on the tooltip when moused over), or from completing a previous quest (chain quest). Until you reach the maximum level, a quest will also reward you with Experience Points (XP). After that, you will receive gold instead. Most quests will also reward you with reputation from the same faction as the NPC quest giver.
The Quests category has articles on many specific quests. This list may not be as comprehensive as database sites like Allakhazam, Thottbot, or Wowhead, but the wiki quest articles have the advantage of being a summary of information on a quest, as opposed to a long list of sometimes conflicting or old comments added to the raw quest data.
New quests can be added to WoWWiki by reading Creating a quest article, using the Quest Boilerplate to record the details and adding categories for the starting zone, obtainable at level (e.g. Quests at 18) and other categories as appropriate. Then update the main zone quest guide page, and any pages for the quest giver or starting item.
There are currently more than 9,500 quests in World of Warcraft. The initial design had only 100 horde quests, 100 alliance quests and 100 neutral quests planned for the whole game.
For a complete list of quests available, see the Category:Quests by level page.

Depending on your race you will start in a different geographical region with some common quests and some race/class-specific quests with several low-level creatures around and a limited number of NPCs. Many of the quests in World of Warcraft are single-step, but there will often be multiple followup quests that turn into a long quest series.
Many NPCs can offer you more than one quest; when talking to them, you”ll get a window giving you the option to select which quest you wish to talk to them about, using the same symbols as appear over their heads. To find out the quest or the status of an uncompleted quest, talk to the NPC with a quest status indicator. Occasionally as you adventure in Azeroth, you may encounter dropped or fixed items that will give out quests when activated (right-clicked).
Try to get and finish all the quests in a given geographic locale before moving on to a higher-level area with new quests. The reason for this is that other quests may send you in different directions and into other map areas. By the time you get back to the original quest track, the quests have gone gray. They can still be accomplished, but any items received will be below your current level, the XP will be much less helpful, and the cash, if any, will be small change compared to the amounts you are currently bringing in from looting and selling vendor trash items. However, if it is a member of a long quest chain, it may be worth completing gray quests, because later ones may be for your level or even for above your level.

Along with the
expansion, NPCs who offer quests will have their names floating above their head (green for quest givers of the same faction and yellow for quest givers who will give quests to either faction or are not yet friendly . If a quest offered is too low level to provide meaningful rewards or experience, the indicator (described below) will not appear (unless requested specifically), but the name will be colored.
You can identify quest giving NPCs from indicators over their heads:
A gold exclamation point (
) indicates an available quest. Since Patch 2.3, the
marker will also show up on the minimap (see upper image to the right). A silver exclamation point (
) indicates a quest that will be available when you gain a few levels. This is not on the minimap. A gold question mark (
) indicates a completed quest (you have met its requirements). In the past, they would appear as a yellow dot (
) on the minimap, but this was easily confused with other detectable things. Since Patch 2.3, the
marker will also show up on the minimap (see lower image to the right). A silver question mark (
) indicates an in-progress (un-completed) quest that you still have requirements to meet. A blue exclamation point (
) or question mark (
) indicates that that NPC has a repeatable quest available. These types of quests are usually meant as a means of gaining reputation with a certain faction, as a reward and xp is only given the first time the quest is completed. After that, xp gained is much lower and there is often no reward but a certain amount of reputation for the respected faction. An orange exclamation point (
) or question mark (
) indicates that that NPC has a legendary quest available. These types of quests are usually for level cap characters with better than average gear for eventual Legendary rewards.
Also as of patch 2.3, you can identify quest givers by the pointer change when you move it over them:
interact with quest giver
quest giver out of range
Also as of patch 2.3.2, you can identify quest enders (completed quest) by the pointer change when you move it over them:
interact with quest ender
quest ender out of range
If you have completed a quest but you might not want to turn it in yet (because your bags are full, for instance), you can return to it later at any time. However, until you turn it in, the quest ender will comtinue to display a gold question mark (
), so you will not know if they have a new quest for you until you turn it the completed quest or speak to them as if to turn it in.
Auto accept quests
Cataclysm, some quests do not technically have quest givers or you won”t need to find the quest giver to get the quest. These are called Auto Accept quests. The player will be notified a quest is available with a popup message at the upper right of the screen with a brief intro about the quest.
These quests are triggered by various factors such as entering a subzone, killing a type of mob, or reaching a certain level.
Low level quests
If a quest is considered too low level for your character (if it will have a gray color in your log), it will be much less visible. By default, an exclamation point (
) will not appear above the quest giver”s head, nor will one appear on the minimap without an extra step (see below). Since Patch 2.3, the quest title in the quest giver”s talk window will also be tagged “(Low Level)”.
Before Patch 3.0.2, a low-level quest could be discovered only by mousing over (or interacting with) its quest giver. Since 3.0.2, selecting “Low Level Quests” on the minimap radar will display exclamation points (
) for every available quest, including those considered “low level”. This also causes a dull exclamation point to appear over NPCs offering low-level quests.
