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 (Not started)


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)

    Hello! I have a question: Why does the new version doesn't support RPGItems as rewards?

    I have edited the language file in the Quests /lang folder with Japanese text, but it is still showing up in English even after a server restart. Any ideas why?

    The language file is the default en.yml and I haven't edited the main config file.

    Your dev build link is broken. Something to do with a domain expiring? Anyway, upon using the "/questadmin give name quest" command; I'm given this error and the quest is not given.

    @Quagoor: Go

    I see the issue, for now you can type "/quests Null" to open the event editor until I fix it.
