All Quest Types in Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page offers a quick overview on all the different Quest types in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

What are Main Quests?

Main Quest Destination.pngMain Quests are what you need to complete to progress through the main story of the game. You’ll always have a main quest active and you can view your next task in the quests tab on the main menu.

What are Hero Quests?

Hero Quests.pngHero Quests are special quests that you’ll need to complete in order to unlock a new Hero who’ll fight alongside you. This is important because you’ll also unlock a new class-type and you can experiment with new builds and playstyles!
