    I wanted to provide this information to people, as many people are not aware of the several quests that can be done, once daily. These quests can be done once, every 24 earth hours*. I will only be listing quests here that are set to a once a day. The XP and gold provided from these, may or may not be worth your time, but I will let you evaluate that for yourself....

    Once you have finished any of these quests, one time, while you are on the Overland Map, a Blue Marker will be present in any of these areas where you now can repeat this quest, if they are available for you to repeat them.

    Of note, doing quests gives you both Adventure and Crafting XP.

    This list is current as of Release 79. These are listed by Difficulty.

    Please feel free to make any comments or suggestions for this post.

    The List of Daily Quests

    Speak to the Oracle

    ____________________

    While not an actual "Quest" I will list it here, as for New Players, this is something you should do. It will be very helpful for you. I have a quick detailed guide on this here: Player Basics - Speaking to the Oracle Daily. This can be done once a day.

    Daily Extortion Quest
    ________________

    Head to the town of Broocash and go to the docks. You will see a NPC named "Street Scholar". Speak to him to start this quest. This quest can be completed with or without a loss in virtue.
    Click the help keyword
    He will then give you the name of 1 of 2 different people (it is random).
    Click name of person he says.
    Click "I'll scare the gold out of him."

    Daily Outskirts Quest
    ___________________
    Each of the 3 Outskirts Areas has a once daily quest that you can complete and receive a reward. You can only have 1 of these quest items on a Character at a time.

    Solace Bridge Outskirts
    Find a Solace Bridge Outskirts Heirloom and give them to Corporal Heloise or Hartley for a reward, depending on who you feel you should give these to.

    Blood River Outskirts
    Find a Blood River Outskirts Heirloom and give them to Vinicius for a reward.

    Highvale outskirts
    Find an Elven Herbal Tea Leave and give them to Esmeralda for a reward. You will need to first get her Get Tea Leaves quest to be able to even find these.

    Find a Special Animal Hide and hand them in to Sven the Hunter.

    Retrieve 5 Paintings
    ___________________
    Caravaggios Wolf, a Reputable Art Dealer or Stephanie Broadmeadow, a Shady Art Dealer, both located in Ardoris, will offer you a quest daily to give them 5 different pieces of art, you can find as drops from various humanoid creatures. Choose which one you want to give art to, depending on your own Avatars virtue..... These can be done once a day.

    They can be found directly west of the Public Vendor, Deng Zhou, in Ardoris.

    Retrieve a Rune Bag
    ________________

    To be able to even find these Rune Bags as a drop, you MUST start the quest from Sigrunn at the docks of Noreach. You will NEVER be able to find these Rune Bag's as drops until you start Sigrunn's quest. So finish this quest first and then you can proceed to do this daily.

    Once you have finished Sigrunn's quest, once a day*, go to South Boundless Forest and kill the various Barbarians there. Eventually a Boundless Forest Rune Bag quest item will drop from a Barbarian. You can only have 1 of these on your character at a time.

    Go to Yew and speak to Pendro. Click on the rune bag keyword and give him the Boundless Forest Rune Bag.

    Retrieve the 5 Love Letters
    ____________________

    Head to the Necropolis Barrens and go to the West Entrance. You will see an NPC named Hyun there. Speak to him.

    If this is your first time doing this quest for him, you can complete the quest and then do the quest one more time. After that, return to him and you can help him again daily.

    4 of the letters can be found on the ground throughout the area with the Imp's and Ghosts. These are:
    Love Letter from a Child
    Love Letter from a Fiance
    Love Letter from a Soldier
    Love Letter from a Young Romantic


    You can have multiple copies of these letters on your character. Occasionally an Imp will also drop one of these letters as well. They are easier to find from the ground though.

    The Imp's in the area will drop the final 5th letter. This is the Love Letter from a Forlorn Wife. You can only have 1 of these on your character at a time.

    Troll Toenails
    ________________

    Tarian in Tenebris Harbor will give you a quest to find the Left Troll Toenail and Right Troll Toenail. You must receive this quest from him first to be able to find the Left Troll Toenail and Right Troll Toenail. You will never be able to find these items unless you have been given this quest. You can only have 1 of each of these quest items on a Character at a time.

    Both Toenails can be found by killing the 2 Twin Trolls in the overland Troll encounter located by a pass in the mountain area South East of the Sawtooth Thicket.

    This quest can only be done once per day.

    Find the Beast's Lair
    _________________________
    .

    Get Dragon Tooth
    ________________
    Go to Ulfheim and at the default entrance is the NPC Kaiser. Speak to him to get his quest for the first time. Once you have finished his quest, you can return to him once daily and return a dragon tooth to him.

    Spindelskog Runestone
    ____________________
    Speak to Skarde in Spindelskog to receive his Find Spindelskog Runestone quest.

    Collect Arcane Catalyst
    ________________
    Speak to a Scout in a Siege. Say help and arcane catalyst. This will give you the Collect Arcane Catalyst quest.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    *The Once Daily flag is reset around 7PM Central Standard Time. I'm not 100% sure that is the exact time though. But once that flag is reset, you then can do these quests again, one more time.

    Nice. Just completed the rune bag quest and the love letters. A dragon tooth is a bit beyond my capabilities at this time. Did the extortion quest a long time ago - I took the "no virtue hit" route.

    1. Go find a siege encounter.
    2. Talk to a scout - near the entrances to get the quest.
    3. Fight the siege engineers there to collect enough arcane catalyst - 18.

    I guess the repeatable random encounter quests should be added to the list too.
    After fighting the last wave in a random encounter there is a chance that an NPC appears. Either a merchant or one of three NPCs who are offering a quest.

    Ecology
    Delivering a certificate of attendance to one of the by the NPC mentioned Magic Shops. E.g. Britany Estates the magic shop southwest of the north-gate
    At the shops merchant you have to answer 3 questions about the ecology of the scene.
    Just as a hint you have to click the keyword "question" to continue. The NPC is not automatically continuing after you answered the first question.
    I think 4000xp and 200 gold is the reward

    or

    Headhunter
    Delivering the bounty slip to one of the by the NPC mentioned Headhunter offices. E.g. Britany Estates south of the west-gate
    You are asked if you did it alone or in a group to split the reward or keep it just for yourself.
    I think 4000xp and 200 gold is the solo-reward

    or

    Pilgrim
    Delivering the membership card to one of the by the NPC mentioned pilgrims. E.g. Brookside at the harbor
    I think 4000xp and 200 gold is the reward

    As far as I know you can do these quest multiple times a day and you can have all three quests simultaneously active but you have to finish e.g. the headhunter quest before you can get another headhunter quest item.

    The siege quest pays good exp and gold. Turn in 18 arcane catalyst a day. You can collect 18 per pass through, or 17 if you want to avoid an encounter with a cabalist.

    As stated specifically in this guide, I'm only going to list quests that can be done once a day (in general). The specific quests, from doing Roving (Overland) Encounters can be done at any time endlessly (as long as a random NPC does appear, once you clear the wave battles). Those are not once a day. But that is some good information to know (if a person didn't know that). :)

    I will however probably put that in a separate guide, a list of repeatable quests. As well as any others.

    That's a pretty short list and some are subject to minuscule chance. Disappointing.

    The Prayer Card, Bounty Slip and Survey Ticket are repeatable quests. The are not daily quests. I just haven’t gotten around to doing that guide yet (overland encounters).

    This specific thread is for once a day quests.

    So, about the dragon tooth quest: once you have the quest, what is the chance of getting a dragon tooth? Do you just automatically get one for killing a dragon or is it a 1 in 1000 chance?

    you always get one from dragon and one from Blodigmun (a named mob who spawns when cathedral wall collapses) if you don’t want to kill the dragon

    Is it only from the dragon in Ufheim or any dragon?

    It is also only 2 drops per run, so in a group, you will have to take turns doing the looting, as you only get enough for two people at a time.

    Of note, with 10x Quest XP these are probably worth your time now to do for now.

    No idea when/if that will be removed though.

    I'm hoping that the bugs are worked out and it stays.

    I have to say that, even though there's a limited number of them, doing the dailies is much more fun than solo grinding.

    We should get this list into our Customisable NPC's! Maybe create a standard where this information can be found in any good local Tavern/Town Hall?

    @Anpu are you sure that the rune bag is repeatable and not daily? I've been told it's only a daily, and as I do not want to get banned for using an exploit! would be nice to have it confirmed that it's repeatable.

    *edit*
    I've just tried to hand the bag in, did it earlier today, so thought I would test it, the NPC says that he does not need another of those today, but will reward you if you bring him one tomorrow, so it would seem that it is infact a daily.
