What is Quests?
An extensive Questing system, where players may take different Quests, complete them for rewards and a sense of accomplishment.

In a nutshell, what features are there?
This mod provides you with the following main features:

  • Citizens 2 support! Your Quests can be given by NPCs!
  • In-game Quest editor! You never have to touch the file containing your Quests!
  • *NEW* Language file! You can translate Quests into your own language, or modify the menu/message formatting.
  • *NEW* GUI Display! Quests can be given from NPC's with an inventory GUI display.
  • *NEW* Quests API! The three different Quests APIs allow you to build your own requirements, rewards or Quest objectives.
  • Denizen support! Denizen scripts can be run at certain points during a Quest.
  • WorldGuard support! Quests may require that you be inside a specific WorldGuard region to take them (via command).
  • PhatLoots support! Quests may give PhatLoots as rewards.
  • mcMMO support! Quests may give mcMMO skill levels as rewards. Quests may also require certain mcMMO skill levels to accept.
  • Heroes support! Quests may give Heroes class experience as rewards. Quests may also require certain Heroes classes to accept.
  • Customized Quest names, messages, Quest requirements, and Quest rewards.
  • Quests are divided into Stages. Stages may have any number of Objectives.
  • 14 (currently) different Objectives ranging from Item Delivery, Location Reaching, to Mob/Player Killing and Enchanting
  • An Event system where various things may happen at certain points in a Quest, such as mob-spawning, lightning strikes, potion effects etc.
  • Leaderboards for Questers with the most Quest Points. Quest Points are an available reward from Quests.

How do I get started? First, you will need the following dependency:

You may also choose to install Citizens 2 if you haven't already. It is highly recommended to get the full experience of Quests. Note: If you are downloading Citizens, make sure to download a Citizens 2 version, and not a Citizens 1.x version.

Okay, I'm setup. How do I start making Quests?
Read the Tutorial page.

This plugin collects data from your server:
This data includes:

  • Server IP
  • Server name
  • Server MOTD
  • Number of quests
  • Whether you use citizens or not

Don't want this? just set snoop, in the configuration, to false.

Planned Features

  • Player Questbook (In Progress)


When a new update of Minecraft is pushed out, often times the new code breaks plugins. When the plugins that Quests relies on break, we have to wait until they are updated before we can update our own. Here is a list of current dependencies and their status. 'Updated' means there is a build available that functions with the latest CraftBukkit version. 'Checked' means an update was not required, and so it should still work okay. 'Waiting' means we are still waiting for the plugin developer to update to the latest version.

  • Citizens (Updated)
  • Denizen (Updated)
  • Denizen (Updated)
  • Heroes (Updated)
  • mcMMO (Updated)
  • PhatLoots (Checked)
  • RPGItems (Checked)
  • Vault (Checked)
  • WorldEdit (Updated)
  • WorldGuard (Updated)

    I'm having some difficulties with the "password" quest objective.

    The support text comes up, but when I type in the password, nothing happens. Do I need to install Denizens or something to get this working?

    Here is a pastebin of my quest:

    I try to use the ingame events editor but when I use the "/quests events" I get "Unknown quests command". This happpens even if I reset de plugin (deleting the quests config folder). There is no error in the console even on debug mode. Im ussing craftbukkit 1.7.9. Any ideas?

    I'm having a major issue! Every time I try to create a quest, at the very end when I'm about to finish it, it disconnects me.

    This is the error: [Disconnect] User GoldenStonez has disconnected, reason: Internal Exception: java.lang.NullPointerException

    I did, it will be fixed in the next version.

    This is not a valid block ID. Next time, use the in-game editor and you won't run into this problem.
