Polaris Main Quest Line Guide

Questing through the higher worldscan be time consuming. Especially if you’re questing by yourself, you can take ages to complete a world. In times like those, it can be helpful to see your progress: see which areas you’ve done and which ones are still ahead of you. This guide is meant to give you courage while questing. By following the quests in this guide, you can see exactly how many more collect and defeat (C&D) quests you still have before you can move on to the next area. I hope this guide will help you keep going, as you see the list of quests get shorter and shorter with every step you take.

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. For each world, 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 sometimes a quest will 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 the defeat of a boss that cheats, but whose cheats you can ignore.
  • Cheat: Quests the require the defeat of a cheating boss.
  • Double boss: Quests that require the defeat of two bosses at once.
  • 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.


Polaris Main Quest Line


Polaris only has a total of 99 quests. For those quests you have to fight 20 regular mobs, and 5 Defeat and Collect quests. There is a total of 38 boss fights, with 7 of them containing real cheaters. Such a short world!

I’ve only played through Polaris once, so I only have a vague idea of the quests. I never really read things until the third of fourth time through a world. So I guess I’ll ask YOU: what was your favorite quest, boss or animation? Let me know in the comments!

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 quest “Borealis Majoris” has been listed twice as both quest 61 and 63, with the instance quest “The Secret Dock” in between.

    • That is how it works for instance quests 😉

  • The flag pole quest has 3 mobs

  • Small typo: “Minor Cheat: Quests that require the befeat of a boss that cheats, but whose cheats you can ignore.”
    Defeat, not befeat. 🙂

    • Is it concerning that I finished Polaris in basically 15 hours…

      • Not really. It is a shorter world which is nice after the lengthy trouble of Azteca and Khrysalis. That said I don’t really mind it myself, but it is kinda refreshing.

  • for the quest ‘papers please’, the mob / explore / boss are all behind an instance!

  • you have quest 88 twice you’ve listed 87, 88, 89 then 88 again just letting you know 😀

    • Thanks for the heads up, but that is how we list quests with instances.

  • Great guide! I use their guids when there is none on central but i might use this anyway!

  • My favorite animation is when you have to dance for the empress in the Imperial Palace. It makes me laugh every time! 🙂

  • #62 is supposed to be an instance.

  • The instance #51 “The Kennels” has 2 mobs. It is mob+interact+mob+interact+boss, Just looking to help!

  • Perfect guide! But how long does It take to make, im asking to see how long because when I start new worlds I like to immediately get the quest line, so when arc 4 comes will it take about a week, a month depending on how long the world is, short like Marleybone, and long like Khrysalis.

  • The rat before they updated cause he would spam minion & he had 70,000 health & I thought it was allot of fun then after they updated it I thought it wasn’t as fun as it was before

    • I hear you. Some people are releaved when bosses get nerfed, others miss the challenge. I don’t think that’s something KI can solve easily.
