Wizard101 Main Quest Line

This guide is meant as a tool to follow your progress while questing in Mirage 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 seperately. 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.
  • 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!

Mirage Main Quest Line Guide

World Info

Mirage has a total of 115 quests. Of those quests, there are 52 regular mob fights, and only 13 Defeat and Collect quests (I think, correct me if I’m counting wrong XD)! There is a total of 58 boss fights. Of these bosses, 29 are cheaters of some kind, though not all of them are equally severe.There are 3 quests you have to do solo: one in the very beginning of Mirage and two somewhere past the half-way point.

Mirage went back to the tradition of doing areas in a certain order, and finishing one before going on to the next. This makes it different from for example Khrysalis, where it was hard to see your progress because you kept having to go back to old areas. I’ve always preferred worlds to be divided into clear areas to finish before moving on to the next one.

Mirage is longer than Polaris, but shorter than Azteca. I’d say it’s almost the perfect length for a world! I was a little disappointed when I came to the end, because I had mentally prepared myself for a longer world, but I do appreciate that it didn’t drag on too long.

My favorite quest is the one where you chase someone on a flying carpet (forgive my memory; I can’t remember who we were chasing). I did like many of the other quests and bosses as well though. For me, this was as close to the perfect world as you can get. Mirage had definitely deserved a place in my top 3 worlds, along with Avalon and Polaris.

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.


  • I don’t personally believe Mother Ghulture is a major cheat. The Rat has more impactful cheats and is only classed as cheat so I don’t understand why Mother Ghulture is major cheat as they don’t impact the fight a huge amount.

  • Interestingly, it seems “Trial of the Understudy” is not a solo fight, however its non-repeatable so it’s only doable if multiple people have the same quest. Probably not worth updating but a cool note.

  • 64 is a D&C, not mob.

    • Fixed, thanks.

  • you should change quest 85 to major cheat

  • #96 first is a boss

    • nvm

  • For quest 42. Snakes In A Palace, in the instance it was mob+mob+Elite+boss.

  • On quest 69 the first boss is an elite enemy.
    Also thank you for these quest lists, they have really helped me out a lot.

    • Never mind this

      • 59 is D&C not mob

        • Updated, thank you

  • for quest 102, it’s a solo, not just a cheating boss 🙂

    • Just fixed it. Thanks!
      I believe there is some way to do it in teams but you need multi player mounts for it.

  • its salib not talib for number 14

  • just wanted to let you know that in the quest Trial of The Understudy the boss in it is a minor cheating boss

    • Thanks for pointing that out, but mind stating how it cheats?

    • no the void elemental doesnt cheat… thats the boss you fight in trial of understudy

  • “My favorite quest is the one where you chase someone on a flying carpet (forgive my memory; I can’t remember who we were chasing).”

    Just so you know, that was Ali Baboon.

  • Probably too late for you to want to fix this, but 18 is not an instance quest, there should be a quest between 18 and 19 that is the instance quest.

  • The favorite quest is called Monkey Business.

  • the carpet quest you chase ali babon

  • By far this is the most horribly designed world, like they were reminiscing Disney’s aladin, with just the thought of a little bit of history of the movie in mind. Oh well its just me that hates the world cuz of how many bosses it has

    • or y’know, an Arabian world

    • You do realize that Aladdin is based off of an actual culture and region, right?

      • yea because aggrobah isn’t supposed to be agrabah lol

    • bosses is the reason why i like this world is funny and with awesome textures mobs are boring

    • bruh there’s literally shaemus from wwe

  • I think quest 59 house calixco is a defeat and collect but i may be wrong.

    • Nevermind i think its gauranteed

    • It is a Defeat and Collect, though guaranteed. I believe it should be fixed, but that’s just me.

      • The same thing happens with quest 66, Construction Junction, where it is classified as a D&C

  • I actually counted. There are 13 defeat and collect quests, not 10.

    • Thanks for remarking this. Not easy keeping everything updated with all the little changes here and there. We will look into it.

  • I don’t have any corrections or anything I just wanted to express gratitude and admiration for your work here. It must be taxing to get so many replies correcting you and while they are often valid I hope they don’t cause you to forget that these guides are incredible and widely appreciated by just about everyone I know in the spiral. There may be a dozen vocal critics but there are hundreds or thousands of people who make great use of your guides and express their gratitude silently. Once again, thank you for all you do, and never forget about the positives!

    • Many thanks for your comment, Artur! I shared this with the author and the rest of the team. You made our day! Thanks again for sharing your positive comments.

  • Quest 50 (Trial of the Sand Wurms) is actually a Defeat and collect not Mob :). Love your quest trees though!

  • 13. The Jeweled Box and 18. The Pale Djinni seem like cheats, not minor cheats?

    • I guess they are much tougher in solo instances. Changed them to show as cheats.

  • The Quest “House Calixco” is a D&C quest and not a mob fight according to this guide.

  • isn’t the last boss of mission 72 a major cheat? He starts completely immune

  • I Dont Even know if this is 100% accurate,but props for putting all this together this helps me sooo much! Thank You

  • I don’t know if it was a bug or a change, but I did Trial of the Understudy with a group. We didn’t use a multi-passenger mount or anything, we were just surprised when we were put in the same instance. So it’s possibly not a solo quest anymore.

  • The quest named The Renegade Durvish is actually a D&C not a mob fight.

  • 34 is actually 1 mob quest! Thanks for the guide thou it is an amazing guide and i use it for every world thank you so much for taking the time to do this for the wizard101 community!

  • Hello, I use your guide for all my questing needs and its typically up to date and I appreciate them. I thought I would let you know that quest 50 in Caterwaul canyons, Trial of the Sand Wurms (mob), is actually a defeat and collect quest (only noticed cause I am doing the quest right now). Hope this helps and again thank you for the wonderful guides

  • In the description, it says that there is one solo at the start of mirage and two past the halfway point, but shouldn’t it be switched?

  • Against time isn’t just talk, it said a whole dungeon correct me if I’m getting this wrong??

    • You are correct, Ivan. However, take a look at how it is listed above. You will notice “Against Time” listed twice after each other and the dungeon quest in between. This is because it is an instance quest.

  • On quest #2, where it says ‘mob’ is not coloured. I take it is supposed to be green 🙂 thanks for all your quest guides.

    • Yeps, it should have been green 🙂 Glad you’re enjoying the guides!

      • Also, I’d like to add that Gretta Darkkettle isn’t a solo. I just did it with my 2 accounts 🙂

        • They changed it? Thank Bartleby! I struggled sooooo much with that battle lol :p

          • I don’t think they did. I managed to do it too with three wizards, but only because we were using the same mount.

  • Shock the monkey is an instance quest, not and Instanbce quest 😀 (Amazing guide btw)

    • Thank you! 🙂

  • For quest 18, the pale djini, the boss is actually a cheating boss (dumoozid).

    • I see! Added that, thank you!

  • #45 is an instance quest!

    • Definition of an instance quest: “Quests that require the completion of a place behind a sigil with at least 2 battles.” I believe that one didn’t have more than one, right?

      You’ve been questing a lot lately it seems! :p

      • Yup

      • Thanks for telling me that, I thought an instance was just a quest that goes in between an other, bit requires entering a sigil.

  • There is 10 D & C Quests, not 9! 😊

    • I actually have to redo all the quest guides’ summary :/ Too many things changed! But I really don’t like counting xD

      • Ok! 😄

  • #2 is actually an instance called eye of history

    • Peculiar! How did I go wrong so early in the game. I adjusted it based on the wiki. Thank you for leaving a comment!

  • after #111 there is an instance quest Called ” Grandfather Spider which is, explore, talk, confront, boss

    • Thanks, Tony!

      • You’r welcome, just trying to help out any way I can! 🙂

  • the pics are not in proper arrangement.For example, the snake’s pic is next to the Aggrobah quest line

  • The mad baron quest is an elite fight, not a boss fight

    • Thank you! 🙂
