A map displaying the locations of City Quest NPCs.[1]

City Quests are small miniquests assigned by citizens of Menaphos. They involve completing three tasks, such as fetching quantities of various items and killing certain monsters.

Players may speak to Urluk in the Merchant district for hints on where to find active City Quests, as well as remind players of their current active City Quest. Citizens with an available City Quest will have the symbol of Menaphos above their head, and can be found even without Urluk's guidance. A faded quest start marker appears on the city map for active quests.

Similar to skilling event currencies that are earned automatically (e.g. clockwork pieces), new City Quests become available after players complete a certain number of five-minute playtime triggers.[2] Intervals between City Quests get longer as more are completed, with the number of five-minute triggers needed starting at 1 and capping at 7. The exact triggers are currently unknown, but various skilling activities qualify. The Shifting Tombs minigame and other activities are also possibilities.
