Note: the Quests are completed using a combination of items from the "Purchased", "Crafted", and "Dungeon" Items listed below to get the special quest items. The quests can be active simultaneously, and completed in any order. The "Dungeon" items can only be obtained once a quest has been started and the initial "Purchased" and "Crafted" items have been exchanged. See details below.
