Quest Progress

As you complete aspects of a quest you will be notified with text at the top of your screen, for example 1/30 Weasels defeated. Some quests will have multiple objectives, as you complete them you will receive a message "Partial Objective Completed", keep in mind that the map marker for a specific objective does not always disappear when you partially complete a quest.

Quest Acquisition

There are several ways to obtain quests: NPCs, Black Spirit, and Guild Quests. All quests will show in your quest log, unless you have a specific filter selected. Make sure to have all quest filters disabled when trying to pick up new quests, as some NPCs will not offer quests of the type you have filtered.
