Temtem: How to Find and Check Quests and Side Quests

Temtem: How to Find and Check Quests and Side Quests

We show you the ins and outs of how to look at all the missions you can do in Temtem.

There's a lot of activities to do in Temtem, and some of them are labelled as quests and side quests with structured goals and rewards. We'll show you how to recognise these in the game, as well as how to look at the quests you've already begun.

How to Find Quests

In Temtem, quests are nearly always marked on your map, either with a golden sun icon (if it's part of the main campaign) or a blue exclamation point. There won't always be a helpful icon in the world itself to tell you where the quest is, but by going to the icon's location, you'll usually see some kind of person, item or marker that corroborates with the quest's location. Interact or speak with that to collect the quest itself.

You might also see blue question marks on the map at times. These connect with markers and points of interest that coincide with quests you've already signed on for. For example, if you've agreed to find the mythical Arburian goose as a side quest, the blue question mark will either show the goose's location, or at least indicate the next step to finding it, such as a person who knows a helpful rumour, or has a lot of stale bread to give away.

In short, you'll want to check your map as regularly as possible, as most towns have at least one additional quest in them, though it's worth mentioning that they don't indicate quests inside buildings. If you're standing outside a quest-giver's house and check the map, it likely won't show the exclamation point until you're standing inside with them.

How to Check Your Quests and Side Quests

You'll probably have noticed the list of quests at the right side of the screen that keep you up to date with those you've signed on for, as well as the dotted icon at the bottom that implies a larger list beyond that. Unfortunately at time of writing, what with Temtem being in Early Access, there is no way to check the larger list of quests, which is a greyed-out option in the menu next to the map. We presume this'll be changed at some point in the future, but right now it means you can only have an immediate record of the last three quests you interacted with or collected. The others are still active and you can pursue them, but there's no way to access the log without continuing it in some way, frustrating as it is.

The list of quests on the right side of the screen serve as a means to keep you informed, though there's currently no way to cycle through older quests. | Joel Franey/USgamer, Crema/Humble Bundle

Hopefully that cleared up matters for you and we'll be sure to update this guide when updates are made to the game.
