- Their completion takes less time, usually around half an hour.
- They may actually consist of a chain of one to six mini-quests, with a new one starting immediately after a previous one.
- When beginning a mini-quest, the current quest is briefly postponed by the hero; the hero will come back to it later.
- When you send a hero back to a town or make him teleport, a mini-quest may be started, so be careful.
- If you send the hero back to town during a mini-quest, or if the hero decides to go back on his own due to low health, the mini-quest will cancel and the hero will return to his previous quest.
- If you activate a mini-quest artifact in town, your hero will leave immediately on the quest. This can be done after healing but before the hero has a chance to sell the artifact.
- If the hero's bag is full during a mini-quest, a trader will drop from the sky. The hero will not return to town to sell.
The most significant difference between quests and mini-quests is that at the conclusion of a mini-quest, the hero may (or may not) have to defeat a boss-monster. As of recently, mini-quest boss monsters also have abilities
