Wizard101 Main Quest Line

[Looking for a different part of this series? Click here]

This guide is meant as a tool to follow your progress while questing in Empyrea as well as a warning for when a cheating boss is coming soon. For this guide, I’m only listing the main quest line quests, aka storyline quests, which means the ones you have to do in order to get to the next area. Side quests are not mentioned.

I list the quests you have to do in a certain area. The areas are listed in the order you should do them in (unless otherwise specified). The area is not always one hundred percent correct, as certain quests can require you to run back and forward between areas to talk to people. To simplify matters, I have not listed this kind of running; the quest will say “talk” but not where the NPC is located. Also, if there is only one quest in an area, I will not mention the area separately. Between brackets are the different parts of the quest, as a quest will often require you to do multiple things.

I have divided the quests in the Spiral into the following groups:

  • Talk: Quests that require an interaction with an NPC.
  • Mob: Quests that require the defeat of regular monsters.
  • Elite: Quests that require the defeat of an elite creature.
  • D&C: Quests that require the collection of something from certain monsters (Defeat and Collect).
  • Boss: Quests that require the defeat of a boss. Elite monsters are not counted as bosses.
  • Minor Cheat: Quests that require defeating a boss that cheats a little (these cheats can generally be ignored).
  • Cheat: Quests that require the defeat of a cheating boss (these cheats will hinder normal gameplay somewhat).
  • Major Cheat: Quests the require the defeat of a cheating boss (these cheats will hinder normal gameplay significantly).
  • Instance: Quests that require the completion of a place behind a sigil with at least 2 battles.
  • Puzzle: Quests that require the solution to a puzzle.
  • Interact: Quests that require interaction with a certain object.
  • Collect: Quests that require interaction with multiple items of a kind.
  • Explore: Quests that just require you to run towards a certain area, NPC or item.
  • Solo: Quests you need to do alone.

Note that some of the quests might be labeled “defeat and collect” in game, but actually appear as mob battles in my guide. This is because many of the D&C quests in Mirage actually give you the item required on the first try. Only fights where I actually had to fight the same mob twice to get the item are labeled as D&C. The rest are labeled as mob fights. Maybe I just got lucky in some cases, so don’t hesitate to correct me in the comments if a mob quest took you multiple fights to complete!

Empyrea Main Quest Line Part 1

World Info

Empyrea part 1 has a total of 80 quests. Among those quests, there are 20 regular mob fights, and 24 elite fights. I don’t really understand why this world is full of elite creatures. Some of these elites could very well be counted as bosses, while others are little more than mobs. There are 8 Defeat and Collect quests. Some of these take quite a while to be completed. I think on one of these quests, I had to engage in 7 battles to get what I needed from it. There is a total of 24 boss fights. Of these bosses, 7 are minor cheaters, and only 1 is a major cheater. There is one elite battle which I counted as “cheat elite”. There are 3 quests you have to do solo: two against a boss and one against a mob.

Empyrea part 1 has 2 excellent puzzles, which I love so much! One is a more intricate and longer version of the pet dance game and the other requires you to play shock-a-lock. These were so fun to do!

Empyrea part 1 is quite short, I would say. Maybe the same length as Polaris? Hard to say, as I haven’t quested in Polaris in a really long time. In any case, I finished part 1 in three days. For me, it was long enough to get really into questing, but not long enough to make me bored.

While misthead has written all kinds of guides, the most popular by far are her "main quest line" guides. She does have all kinds of articles under her belt, from a grandmaster Myth PvP guide to research about which wand stitches are the most popular.


  • The first mob in quest 19 in part 2 is a Defeat and Collect, not mob

    • Thanks, fixed.

  • Khan Found It! has a bossfight

  • 62 Gathering Shadows is a D&C not a mob.

    • Fixed, thanks.

  • > 70. Braving the Storm (Challenge Boss)

    You can’t do the challenge version of this boss until he has been defeated in “standard mode”. I’m not sure why you mentioned the challenge version, since you can’t do the challenge version for your quest (unless you teleport to someone who’s doing the challenge). Ditto for Medulla, you have to beat his standard version for the questline.

  • 69. In Sepidious is, It’s Good For The Heart(Not He’s)

    It’s also mob+elite+boss(Aka Quatlady), they also had 3x for all fights.

  • There is a quest missing. It’s called Such A Krok, it’s a instance, before Return of The King!

  • I just did the quest A Light Fight (Quest 27, Part 2), and the boss in the instance has a very minor cheat if someone joins late. It is only a juju, but it is still a minor cheat.

    • Anyone else unable to do Timber Timbre? It keeps saying “Unable to load Zone” everytime I try to enter & so I can’t move on from Empyria.

  • Quest 42 from part one is an instance.

  • #26 of part one, King Khan, is spelled incorrectly (it’s currently Kahn)

    Great guide!

  • Quest #60 is missing, just wanted to let you know!

    • No it’s there! It goes #59, #60, back to #59 then moves on to quest #61

  • Not sure if anyone else has already said this but you are missing quest #60.

    • I can see it for both Part 1 and Part 2. Can you specify a bit more what is missing?

      • Oh, I was looking at part two and I guess I just completely skipped over 60, my apologies!

  • Gathering Shadows is a D&C quest

  • Could you say that Empyrea has 149 quests in total as a world, since parts 1 and 2 are not separate worlds? Khrysalis was also in 2 parts, but you didn’t count that as a different section. I’m just a little confused as to the separation.

  • I am not sure how it hasn’t been noticed yet bet quest 62 Gathering Shadows is a defeat and collect not a mob.

  • lava at first sight is a boss not talking

    • nvm srry

  • Extra Life is a defeat and collect, not a mob.

    • Fixed. Thanks!

  • Also the quest name is Shadow Tricks not shadow trickster.

    • Fixed both. Many thanks!

  • Shadow Trickster (talk + explore + solo boss + talk) He actually cheats it is a very small cheat but never the less its still a minor cheat.

  • on quest 62(gathering shadows) its D&C and not just mob thanks for all the guides 🙂

    • it’s the same with quest 63 🙂

  • 15. Khan Fount it! (talk + explore + talk) (Empyrea Part 1)

    Spelt wrong xD

    • Fixed. Thanks Ethan!

  • “23. This Little Light Net of Mine… (talk + talk)” Part 2, is not just talking, you’ve got an Instance: mob + boss (cheats)

    • Check no. 24. We categorize quests that way when its an instance (a dungeon that will give you a quest). The quest is technically another quest and not the main one, but it is still required to progress further.

      When you have an instance quest, you will have two active quests in your book. In this case, our lists will show 23 > 24 > 23.

  • hey! on quest 27, the boss is actually a minor cheater (it jujus if you join late) <3

  • Number 13 on part 2 is 3 mobs. Nice guide 🙂

  • I don’t know if this was intentional or not but you ended Part Two with the Storm Trident quests, leaving out the second Triton fight and the talking quests after that.

    • I just finished Aethyr Titan again on my storm and realized that it is the same quest, but there is also an instance and a few more quests after it. The ending for Empyrea Part Two should be:
      70. Braving the Storm: (explore
      71. Storm the Titan (Explore, Major Cheat)
      70. Braving the Storm (Talk, Explore)
      72. The End of Days (Instance:, Talk, Interact, Major Cheat, Interact, Talk)
      70. Braving the Storm (Talk)
      73. Undo The Undoing (Explore, Talk)
      74. Nothing to Fear (Talk, Talk)

  • real politics (41) is an elite fight

    • The quests “Real Politics” and “Afraid of the Dark” are actually linked. The elite marked in Afraid of the Dark is the same one in Real Politics. Thus, all fights should be accounted for.


    • That’s easy, just attack him 5 times with spells that require a shadow pip. For example, raging bull, glowbug squall, etc. Just take the spell you got from Darkmoor and use it on him 5 times and you win.

      • A bit late hah but shadow wand hits count. It’s just if it involves shadow in any aspect.

    • use a shadow wand hit five times

  • Empyrea part 2 quest 62 Gathering shadows is a D&C quest (D&C+Talk+Talk)

    • Also the next quest 63 Extra Life is a D&C (Explore+D&C+Interact+Explore+Explore+Talk+Explore+Interact+Talk)

  • Second part empyrea quest 41. The Truth Hurts (explore + explore + elite + talk)

    The elite is a cheater

    • Updated. Thanks!

  • Quest 22 has 3 D&C’s back to back instead of two and Quest 27 is mob+elite+boss instead of mob+elite+elite. Hope this helps! 🙂

  • would’ve been nice to know the Dream Morganthe’s resist death.

    • I know that feeling. I hoped you did the Quest!

  • #6 on part 2 (Communications Officer) is actually a defeat and collect, not a mob fight.

  • How far along the quest tree gets you to the place where you can farm paradox gear?

    • Basically, you need to complete it all as the Paradox gear drops in the Husk.

      • what drops the gear is it everything including the final boss in the husk

        • Hi Stephano,

          The Gear drops are as follows

          Astral Grove- Drops Hat and Boots

          Elemental Grove- Drops Deck and Athame

          Spiritual Grove- Drops Amulets and Rings

          Trident- Drops Robes and Wands

          Trident’s Second Chance Chest- Drops all of the above

        • Yes, the final boss in the Husk could drop the Gear. It’s a low percentage though.

  • Can you add in these guides if there are quests that gives you new spells? would be handy to know when you are able to get a new spell.

    • Hi Jonikles,
      That is a wonderful idea! We will see about adding it in the article series.

      • Thanks for the reply! Glad you liked the suggestion.

  • Hello, the quest ‘Communications Officer’, #6 of part 2, is actually a D&C quest

  • There is a mistake on Quest 67. It is Elite, Elite, Boss not Elite, Boss.

  • On quest 27 the third battle is a boss not an elite

  • For Empyrea Part 2, the quest “In the Elemental Groove” is listed as elite+boss, but is actually mob+elite+boss, just thought I’d let you know. Thanks for your guides and all you do!

  • In Empyrea part 2 you have listed ‘More Like Scare-o Plains’ twice (as 30 and 32) while they are the same quest. The quest in between (31) is the instance quest

    • Yes! That’s correct. “More Like Scare-o Plains” is a quest that started BEFORE the instance and ends AFTER the instance. The NPC telling you to do the instance is usually the same NPC that you have to turn the quest in to. The instance is just an additional quest in the middle. I’m not sure how clearly I’m explaining this lol.

      • Yes, I understand it. However, I just wanted to point out a consistency mistake, since you usually denote similar quests with the same number in your guides (like “The Search for Sparck”).

        • Ohhh, I see what you meant now! Let me fix that, thanks! 🙂

  • The quest “Take me down to Velo City” doesn’t require you to fight a boss but a mob.

  • The boss in The Ultimate Price of Peace is actually a minor cheating boss as if a wizard enters into the battle late, he casts a shadow version of Queen Calypso on that wizard. I fixed this in the quest list.

  • Hi, I was wondering if yall have had a chance to try fighting, and put up a guide for a boss called Hercules poirot? He is in Empyrea 2, Southwest Aero. You encounter him through a side quest called I Sought the Sheriff, given by Erasmus the Intepreter in port Aero. Ive been on wizzy for nine years and use to finding my way through different, difficult fights. But this guy is crazy. I blade or trap, he get a +100 blade, and of course criticals when he hits. And he always hit before I have a chance to disarm or steal that blade

    I was hoping you guys could test it, figure it out and share what the secret is? because I am stumped!!

    • Working on it! Thanks for your suggestion!

    • For Hercules (!):

      For any round he is at full health, he will give himself the 100% protected balanceblade!

      For any round he is not at full health, he will heal himself 1897 health.

      If you are late, he says “Feel the power of myth” (or something to that effect, lol), and will cheat cast Athena Battlesight, Orthurs, and Calendar. Potentially more, but my latecomer wiped on Calendar!

      This fight is essentially a two-steps-forward-one-step-back scenario! You should try and hit every round or every other round for more than 1897 damage. I’m not really sure if this one is soloable, but I managed to do it with two wizards, a myth and a balance! I would recommend bringing at least one other person along to do some little hits to keep him off of full health while you prep for a bigger hit.

      He is myth (and something else I think), but from what I experienced, he didn’t use earthquake a ton. Loved to use Noble Humongofrog though!

      Good luck!

  • you skip a few quest in between the jungle part. nothing major. There also some cheating bosses you don’t mention

  • Very Nice guide 😀
