A quest in Hearthstone refers to a specific action or objective that the player can perform or achieve in order to receive a reward. The rewards are typically given in gold, and serve as one of the primary means of acquiring gold. Some non-repeatable quests offer other rewards, such as card packs, arcane dust or even legendary cards.
Quests come in several forms. Daily quests are given-out each day and can be viewed in the Quest Log, with a maximum of 3 available at any time. These must be given to the player before they can be completed, but can be awarded repeatedly. Unique quests are non-repeatable 'hidden' quests which can be completed at any time, but are not revealed to the player until they are completed.
In addition to the array of quests on offer, players are also awarded 10 gold for every 3 wins in Play mode, up to a maximum of 100 gold per day. While similar to a quest, this reward can be completed an unlimited number of times, without ever being specifically awarded to the player. Rather, each win in Play mode displays the player's progress toward this reward, and gold is awarded each time 3 wins is reached, up to the daily limit. This reward serves as an additional and potentially larger source of gold than quests, preventing total dependence upon them.
Once per day, players are awarded a new quest, known as a daily quest, or 'daily'. Unlike unique quests, daily quests are repeatable and it is possible to have the same daily quests assigned on two different days. Daily quests represent the majority of quests available to players. New players must first complete the two unique quests First Blood and The Duelist, accomplished by completing a total of 4 games in Play mode, before they are able to receive daily quests.
Current daily quests can be viewed in the Quest Log by clicking the exclamation mark icon at the bottom left of the main menu. Each quest is shown along with its name, objective and reward. Players can only have 3 daily quests at any time, but completing a quest will remove it from the quest list, making room for another. Players can choose to abandon up to 1 quest each day, immediately receiving a new, random quest in its place.
All daily quests award gold, and do not provide other rewards. Most reward 40 gold, although some reward 60 or 100 gold. Daily quest credit is only awarded in the Arena and in Play mode (both Ranked and Casual). Practice mode awards no credit towards daily quests, with the exception of the 'Total Dominance' quest.
Gaining daily quests
Daily quests are awarded at midnight server time, determined by region. This is often referred to as the "quest reset" or "reset time". The Americas region is set to PST; the Europe region set to CEST; and the Asia region set to Korea time. Player reports suggest that the reset time changes to match daylight saving time during the summer months. However, note that if the country in which the player is based has a different daylight saving time schedule to that of the country in which the server is located, there will be periods during which the reset does not take place at the usual local time.
Once the reset time has passed, upon logging in or completing a match players with less than 3 quests will be awarded a new quest. Players will not automatically receive a new quest; they must first perform one of these actions. If the player has been in one of the game menus and is awaiting a new quest, it is therefore a good idea to log out and back in again, in order to receive the new quest before resuming play.
Players do not need to be online during the quest reset in order to be awarded a new quest. Quests will accumulate in the player's profile, up to a maximum of 3, and will be presented to the player when they next log in. Players are unable to accumulate daily quests beyond the maximum of 3.
Note that all class-specific daily quests offer a choice between two classes; completing either version of the quest will provide a single reward and remove the quest. Eligible classes may be one of a number of combinations - see below for a list of possible combinations.
|[class #1] or [class #2] Victory||Win 2 games with [class #1] or [class #2].||40 gold|
|[class #1] or [class #2] Dominance||Win 5 games with [class #1] or [class #2].||60 gold|
|Destroy them All||Destroy 40 minions.||40 gold|
|Only the Mighty||Play 20 minions that cost 5 or more.||40 gold|
|The Meek Shall Inherit||Play 30 minions that cost 2 or less.||40 gold|
|Spell Master||Play 40 spells.||40 gold|
|Beat Down||Deal 100 damage to enemy heroes.||40 gold|
|Total Dominance||Win 7 games in any mode.||100 gold|
|3 Victories!||Win 3 games with any class.||40 gold|
Victory and Dominance daily quests randomly select one of a number of pre-determined class pairings. Other class combinations are not offered. The list of possible combinations is the same for both Victory and Dominance quests.
Possible combinations are listed below. Note that each class may be paired with one of two other classes. For example, a hunter may be paired with a druid or a mage, while a druid may be paired with a hunter or a rogue. For speculation about the system of pairings, see the Trivia section.
|Druid or Hunter|
|Druid or Rogue|

The exact pattern of class pairings for Victory and Dominance daily quests may be based on mathematics, or the lore behind each class. Probably the best example is the paladin, commonly considered a combination of the priest and warrior classes, which can only be paired with the priest or warrior.
This explanation doesn't seem to fit the pairings precisely. However, it would be reasonable to speculate that the designers used lore for as many of pairings as possible, but due to the mathematical constraints of the system (each class being matched with precisely two others) were forced to make the remaining pairings fairly randomly.
The below table lists specific and unique or nearly unique connections between the paired classes. Weak connections are marked with a *. More general connections common to more than three classes are not listed.
|Pairing||Connection between classes|
|Druid & Hunter||Wilderness adventurers comfortable with animals|
|Hunter & Mage||Ranged combatants known for firing projectiles to deal direct damage *|
|Mage & Shaman||The primary wielders of elemental magic|
|Shaman & Warlock||Employers of power from extraplanar creatures; many warlocks are former shamans *|
|Warlock & Priest||The only practitioners of Shadow magic|
|Priest & Paladin||Devoted servants of the Holy Light|
|Paladin & Warrior||Plate-wearing, heavily armed fighters at the forefront of battle|
|Warrior & Rogue||Non-magical melee combatants employing bloody attacks|
|Rogue & Druid||Stealthy classes well versed in agile melee combat (as shapeshifted cats, in the case of druids)|
