To keep track of your quests, it is recommended that you use the [[Red Book]], as it records the details of all your currently active mini-quests. Before {{update|35}} it was found in the [[Ring Portal|starter chest]], now it is given to the player by the [[Grey Wanderer]]. It can also be crafted (see recipe to the left), so don't worry about not finding it.

To keep track of your quests, it is recommended that you use the [[Red Book]], as it records the details of all your currently active mini-quests. If you spawned in a single-player world, you will find a Red Book in the [[Ring Portal|starter chest]], but it can also be crafted, so don't worry about not finding it in multiplayer.

The nature of the quest can consist of any number of tasks, from killing a certain number of enemy units to simply getting a [[Dwarf]] a few raw porkchops so the family can enjoy supper.

Once you have done your deed, return to the NPC who offered you the quest (making a [[Waypoints|custom waypoint]] near them can help with this). They will take the items you gathered for them (if applicable) and give you some reward in return – most often [[alignment]] with their faction, the exact amount depending, of course, on how difficult the quest was to complete and since {{Update|29}} also on the mood of the quest-giver. As of {{Update|20.1}}, [[Silver Coin|silver coins]] and [[achievements]] are also awarded. Since {{Update|29}} you might also get a [[pouch]], since {{Update|30}} [[:Category:Armour|armour pieces]] or [[Rohan Shieldmaiden|loyalty]] as well, and since {{Update|33.4}} there is also a chance to receive [[Lore Texts|Lore Books]] from completing mini-quests

You can speak to the NPC before completing the quest. They will urge you to complete the quest and may give a reminder of what the quest requirements are. If it is a ‘collect’ quest (see below), they will take the items you have currently gathered from your inventory (but not out of your [[pouch]]es) and the quest will be updated in the [[Red Book]]. A quest-tracker (see below) will be shown in the top left corner of you screen, if this feature is enabled via the [[configuration]] file.

A notable feature about questing is that it allows you to get alignment without killing units. This is especially useful for [[Pacifism|pacifists]] and the [[Hobbit]] faction before the player feels ready to leave [[the Shire]].

These require you to collect a certain amount of a specific item and bring it to the NPC. Said items can be obtained through any method, including crafting, looting, or drops from enemies. The amount of items the NPC requests is randomly chosen for each quest.

These types of quests require you to kill a certain number of enemies, either of a certain [[Factions|faction]], or a specific type (e.g. [[troll]]s). As with other quests, in order to complete the quest, you must return and speak to the NPC after having slain all the enemies.

These quests most often require you to kill enemies of the NPC who is giving the quest. For example, a [[Rohirrim|Man of Rohan]] may ask you to slay a certain amount of [[Uruk-hai]] or [[Dunlending]]s, but will never ask you to kill [[Mirkwood Spider]]s. When you don't mind getting negative [[alignment]] with factions, and you want a lot of alignment with the [[faction]] you play as, this is the easiest way. Because: you get alignment for every enemy you kill already, but ontop of that you also get +1 when doing a quest which can, with the right quests give you 150+ alignment.

Somehow a special case of this type is a quest given out by a [[Rohan Shieldmaiden|Shieldmaiden of Rohan]], which was added in {{update|30}}. The reward for it is recruiting the maiden, instead of only her gratitude.
