Quests are a main game feature in High School Story.
There are many different types of Quests available to the player. These include Main Story Quests, Help Quests (Classmate & Character), Special Quests (Level Unlocked, Seasonal & Dates), Standalone Arc Quests and Other (Miscellaneous) Quests.
Main Story Quests
Completing Main Story Quests are the only way a player can level up and progress in the game. Rewards received from Main Story Quests will always include XP, which are necessary to level up. These quests are sequential meaning quests will need to be completed in a certain order. Storylines can be slightly changed when Main Characters are dating each other.
Help Quests are unlocked each time a new classmate is admitted and enrolled into the player's school. Each quest has a story unique to each Classmate/Character which allow the plater to get to know them better.
These are divided into:
Classmate Help Quests
Classmate Help Quests refer to quests unlocked after admitting the different Classmate types that the game has to offer. The story is the same regardless of the gender of the Classmate but dialogue is slightly different if the player is dating the classmate they are helping.
Character Help Quests
Character Help Quests refer to quests unlocked after admitting Main Story Characters. These quests help the player get to know the All-Stars on a more personal level and the player can find out more about their lives outside of the school unlike in Main Story Quests. Same as with Classmate Help Quests, dialogue is slightly different if you are dating the character you are helping.
All-Star Quests refer to the quests that introduce the All-Stars and the subsequent quests that are unlocked after recruiting them. These quests help the player get to know the All-Stars on a more personal level and the player can find out more about their lives outside of the school unlike in Main Story Quests. Same as with Classmate Help Quests, dialogue is slightly different if you are dating the character you are helping.
Side Quests refer to quests that have little to no bearing on the Main Storyline. Pixelberry often use these quests to advertise their other games or introduce new characters. None of these quests are Premium however, some are Time-Sensitive.
Standalone Arc Quests
Standalone Arc Quests refer to different sets of quests that each have their own storylines. They generally have little to no bearing on the Main Storyline except for the introductions of Ezra, Koh and Ace. Standalone Arc quests are sequential. Most of these quests are neither Premium nor Time-Sensitive.
Special Quests refer to any quest that becomes available that is not a Main Story Quest or Help Quest. These often require a price to be paid, such as coins, rings or books, and are most often Time-Sensitive. This means that the price must be paid and the Preview must be read before the time runs out or the quest will disappear. These are divided into:
Level Exclusive Quests
Level Exclusive Quests refer to alternative quests that are unlocked when the player reaches certain levels in the game. These are all Premium and Time-Sensitive.
Seasonal Quests refer to quests that become available during Holiday periods and the different seasons in the US. These include Valentine's Day, Christmas, Halloween and many more. These are mostly Premium and Time-Sensitive.
Date Quests refer to quests that become available periodically throughout the game. The Dates in the "Main Quest Section" are usually released in Seasonal Updates (during Holiday periods in the US) or after the player levels up. These are mostly Premium. The Fantasy Photo Booth allow you to see what it would be like if you were dating certain Characters in the story. These include Main Story Characters, All-Stars or even students from Hearst High. Each Character has their own stand alone story and are sequential. These Dates will not affect the Main Storyline or the dialogue for other Character Dates. These are mostly Premium.
Other (Miscellaneous) Quests
Other Quests refer to quests that introduce new Game Features or contain messages from the High School Story staff.
Quests will typically contain 6-10 Parts. There are certain requirements that need to be met to complete a part and to receive awards. These requirements are often followed with a set duration of waiting time before the player can advance. The time is located on the right hand side of the quest screen above the Rewards Section and green "START" button.
Upon completion of a quest, you will receive rewards. These will be a combination of coins, rings, books, experience (XP) and new classmates. The reward often depends on the type of quest you have completed. Rewards will be displayed alongside the duration of the quest on the right side. When a quest has been completed, the Quest Target will flash and a green "COLLECT REWARD" button will appear where the "START" button was located.
