How to Find and Check Temtem Quests
There are a ton of things to do in Temtem as you can see. These quests and side quests offer various goals and rewards. In this section of the Temtem side quests guide, we will discuss how to recognize them and how to find side quests.
When playing Temtem you will notice that all of the quests and side quests are pretty much always marked on the map. They are marked either with a golden icon (main mission) or with a blue exclamation point. Keep in mind that these won’t always be helpful icons as they won’t always tell where the quest or side quest is. However, when you reach a marked location you will usually meet a person, item, or marker that corroborates with the quest’s location. Once you interact with the person, item, or marker, you can trigger the quest or know how to trigger the quest.
You might also notice blue marks on the map sometimes. These are points of interest that coincide with the quests and side quests in Temtem. For example, if you are tasked with getting the Arburian goose, the blue quest mark will either show its location or indicate what must be done next. So, always check your map and keep track of active objectives and markers.
How to Check Quests and Side Quests
Temtem players would have noticed a list of quests on the right side of their screen. The list keeps you updated on quests and side quests you have activated. There is also a dotted line at the bottom that implies there is a larger list to be seen. However, so far Temtem developers haven’t added a way to expand the list of side quests and quests. This will probably change at some point with a new update. Temtem is still in early access so many changes and improvements are expected.
These are all the side quests that you can complete in TemTem. For more on the game, be sure to check out our TemTem Guides page.
