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 separately. 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.
  • 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 dungeon.
  • 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.

Zafaria main quest line


Zafaria has 148 quests, of which 19 are Defeat and Collect quests, 30 regular mob fights and 24 bosses. Of those bosses, 6 are the cheating type. One of them only cheats with a tiny Minor Blessing, but hey! It’s still a cheat! XD There are 4 instances: Tomb of the Zebra King, The Black Palace, Elephant Graveyard and Mirror Lake.

My favorite quest in Zafaria is called “Shrimp and Algae!” Umlilo Sunchaser is just such a funny NPC, and the quest dialog is just awesome. “I’m doomed! Doomed! Doooooooooomed! Oh, dare I say hello? You look like a Wizard from Wizard City. Am I dreaming you? I’m not? Frabjous day!”

My favorite area was the whole of Elephant Graveyard. I just loved the bosses there and the gloomy environment. Strange, I know! What’s your favorite area?

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.


  • Same Not sure what the heck is the problem with this game. Have you ever figured out what was wrong?
    I am stuck in Zafaria, and have the hero badge but cannot leave. All quests are completed in Zafaria.

  • I think Baobab Crossroads is incorrectly spelled as Baobab Crossrounds

    • Fixed, thanks.

  • i have no quests i zafaria yet its not letting me into avalon

    • Hi, if you completed all Zafaria quests, speak to Merle Ambrose and he’ll give you the first Avalon quest “This Little Light of Mine”.

  • 70 is a defeat and collect quest

  • “115. Escape From the Apes (mob + talk + talk)”
    Should be “115. Escape From the Apes (elite + talk + talk)”

    • Why can I not access Avalon I’m level 70 I got the hero of Zafaria badge checked in with Ambrose what is the problem

  • Isn’t 48 an instance????

    • Fixed. Thanks! 🙂

  • For The Black Palace quest, the second fight is an elite not a regular mob.

    • Fixed. Thanks!

  • this helps a lot thank you

  • Yay! I love Greyhorn Mercenary genocide!
