Daily Quest Pool  

Once you have finished Novel 1, in between the novel unlock dates as well as once the storyline is finished, you are able to complete daily quests in order to receive extra rewards.

There are three NPCs you are able to complete quests with. You can only take a quest with one NPC at one time, and once you complete a quest with an NPC, you are on a 12-hour cooldown before being able to take another quest. The cooldown only starts once you finish a quest, and during your questing progress, the other NPCs will become greyed out. They will unlock after the cooldown is over. In addition to this, each time a new novel is unlocked, your quest cooldown will be reset, allowing you to take a new quest once you finish the current novel.

Daily quests are randomised from five possible options and will always offer the same rewards, though the event currency will be randomised to a degree. You can reset your quest and take a new one (whether from the same NPC or a different one) for a fee of 20 Meteorite Shards.

Meteorite Shards earned from daily quests do not count towards the event bars that are being unlocked.

Every quest that you complete with an NPC will also grant you +2 Reputation with that chosen NPC. Once you reach 40 Reputation with an NPC, the other two NPCs will become locked. Reputation has no other use beyond locking out specific NPCs.

The NPC that you choose in Novel 5 will affect the daily quests you can take, as you will earn +40 Reputation for the NPC that you align yourself with.
