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.
 Daily quests
Upon logging in for the first time each day, players are awarded one 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. Daily quests are reset at 3 AM server time.
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.
Players do not need to log in each day in order to be awarded new daily quests. They will accumulate in the player's profile, even if they uninstall Hearthstone from their computer. Players can also accumulate more than 3 total daily quests, although only 3 will be available (and displayed) at any time. If a player logs in for the first time that day while they already have a full selection of 3 daily quests, an additional daily quest may be placed in a hidden queue for the player. Completing some of the current quests may lead to these 'queued' daily quests immediately being granted in their place, rather than having to wait until logging in the next day to awarded a fresh one.
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.
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|
 Class combinations
Victory and Dominance daily quests randomly select one of a number of pre-determined class pairings. Other combinations are not awarded. The list of possible combinations is the same for both types of quest.
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|
|Hunter or Mage|
|Mage or Shaman|
|Paladin or Priest|
|Paladin or Warrior|
|Priest or Warlock|
|Rogue or Warrior|
|Shaman or Warlock|

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.
Unfortunately, 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.
|Class||Pairing 1||Pairing 2|
|Druid||Hunter - Connection to the wild||Rogue - Cat-form druid in WoW is very similar to a rogue|
|Hunter||Druid - Connection to the wild||Mage - Shoots stuff with projectiles.*|
|Mage||Hunter - Shoots stuff with projectiles.*||Shaman - The other class that bends the elements to their will.|
|Paladin||Priest - The other class devoted to the Holy Light||Warrior - Only other plate-wearer, and wielder of heavy weapons|
|Priest||Paladin - The other class devoted to the Holy Light||Warlock - Shadowpriests and warlocks are the only classes that use Shadow magic.|
|Rogue||Druid - Cat-form druid in WoW is very similar to a rogue||Warrior - Melee combat, bloody attacks|
|Shaman||Mage - The other class that bends the elements to their will||Warlock - Many warlocks are former shamans *|
|Warlock||Shadowpriests and warlocks are the only classes that use Shadow magic.||Shaman - Many warlocks are former shamans *|
|Warrior||Paladin - Only other plate-wearer, and wielder of heavy weapons||Rogue - Melee combat, bloody attacks|
