Wizard101 Main Quest Line

Questing through the higher worlds can 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 98 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.


  • Cody or so,

    A couple of weeks ago, I saw an ad iso writers. My degree is in creative writing where we actually had a couple of classes on writing games and stories. Yeah, the one I wrote slaps, but that isn’t why I’m writing. I’d like to know what I can send you for you to have a look at my style, etc.

  • Just want to say that the instance quest 61 is not bolded, but other than that very useful! 🙂

  • Bastille’s first boss has a minor cheat, when you cause an aura, he casts a supernova

  • I have played Kataba Iceblock three times and I get to 90 where I defeat Ygor and Ivan runs into the Titan Pod, but every time I follow him into the Titan pod to do 91, the game takes me back to Walruskburg, World Gate. Then it makes me do it all over again, with same result. My current quest is Rise of Titans, Talk to Ivan, but I can’t get to him. For some reason I can’t talk to Ivan or Captain Winter to finish 91? Am I missing something or is there a glitch?

    • Hmm… might need to reach out to KI support about this.

    • I figured out the problem. During the fight with Ygor, I had to flee and use a potion. That action took me to the world gate. Thus once I defeated Ygor, and left the Lab, it took me back to the world gate.

      To fix my problem. After defeating Ygor, I Marked my Location, left, which took me to the World Gate and then I ported back to the Lab and then I could follow Ivan to the Titan Portal.

  • On quest 17, The Bastille, the first boss is a minor cheat.

  • on number 9 fishy business, it is supposed to be an instance

  • There’s a typo on 19. It should be Vive, not Viva.

  • 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 😉

      • But by your quest guide formatting this is marked incorrectly. Every other quest with an instance inside it is labeled as the same number twice, returning to the lower number. It should be labeled as 61 both times, not 61 then 63. Also, shouldn’t the amount of quests subsequently should go down by one through the whole list? Artur was right.

        • He’s right. Got it confused with 59 and 60. Thanks.

  • 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.

      • Personally, I think they should offer an optional challenge mode where bosses have their original stats before they were nerfed. Perhaps have a reward for beating them that way, like more gold, or the ability to choose your drops.

        • Thats a bit much to code into an online MMO and a bit overpowered.

          • I mean, I’m no programmer, but I don’t think it would be too much. I don’t think it would be overpowered to get the drops you want, considering they are items that you can get legitimately as it is.
