Dragon Quest XI S Side Quest Guide

As you journey through the world of Erdea on your campaign you will be offered a huge number of activities in the form of side quests you can choose to take on. The following Side Quest Guide will tell you where to find them and what the reward is for completing them.

Side quests are split into three acts, the first 26 occur before the a significant, world-changing event that happens when you reach Yggdrasil for the first time. Although these side quests are not hard to miss you will have to wait until much later in the game to do them if you pass the point of no return. Side quests 27-47 happen after the world-changing event, and side quests 48-60 takes place during the post-game, which is a lengthy portion of the campaign where you have to fix some of the things in the world. The side quests in this third section will grant rewards that should help you on your final quest to defeat the true final boss.
