Timed Quests are daily quests in Final Fantasy XV that reward the player with Quest Points (QP), which can be cashed in for several rewards, including the exclusive novelty greatsword Afrosword. Timed Quests have unique music by Afrojack in both the menu and the battles.

MechanicsEdit

Timed Quests involve hunting enemies, ranging from weak ones like sabertusks or garulas, to fighting superbosses. The amount of QP that can be earned depends on the difficulty of the hunt and the available hunt is determined by the date of the console, meaning that an online connection is not needed. The player can change the date on the console to trigger a desired Timed Quest and one does not need to close the game for the date to update. Whether the player can attempt the quest depends on which chapter they are in; e.g. the superboss hunts are only in Chapter 15.

Timed Quests are viewed from the menu and can be repeated, but the QP are only earned for the first completion per day. If the player leaves the area before completing the Timed Quest, the quest will reset if the player goes too far from the area. The quest can be abandoned at any time by fleeing. Enemies killed in Timed Quests yield item drops, EXP and AP like normal, making them good grinding opportunities. Some Timed Quest "variants" of enemies are not fought elsewhere and have unique bestiary entries. The Behemoth King and Treant variants fought in the Timed Quests have unique names, "Dread Behemoth" and "Tyraneant," though they still appear in the bestiary under the base enemy's entry.

Summoning is possible in Timed Quests, but guest characters cannot participate and Carbuncle will not appear.

Timed Quest marker from FFXV

The quest location is shown on the map when the player is on the open world of Lucis (Timed Quests never happen in Altissia, Niflheim, Insomnia or dungeons). Going to the area on the map informs the player they have entered a Timed Quest and a timer appears in the corner of the screen, although sometimes the player may need to interact with the quest marker to trigger it. Timed Quests trigger regardless of time of day or weather. The quest fought atop Duscaen arches may be tricky to find, as there is no indication climbing them is possible.

Timed Quest enemies spawn with blue markers, and keep spawning as the player kills them until they have felled enough to satisfy the quest requirements.

Creation and developmentEdit

Timed Quests were introduced in patch 1.05. They required the player to defeat a specific amount of monsters and rewarded an amount of AP, EXP, gil, and Oracle Ascension Coins for first completion that varied from quest to quest. These Timed Quests were only available for a limited time and required an ongoing internet connection. These Timed Quest concluded with patch 1.06.

Patch 1.09 reintroduced a redesigned version of online Timed Quests. The new quests featured several versions: hunt contests, rush contests and fishing contests that ran for approximately one week and featured leaderboards (hourly, daily and weekly). To rank high in the leaderboards one had to either defeat as many quest enemies as possible in an hour (hunts), finish the quest in the fastest time possible (rush contests) or catch as many fish as possible in a single hour (fishing contests). This new version had a new rewards system based on Quest Points(QP). There were two types of QP: one that remained through all Timed Quests, and another type associated with the quest in which they were earned. Finishing a Timed Quest for the first time rewarded 50 QP of each type and ranking in one of the three leaderboards also rewarded a certain amount of both types of QP depending on the player's position. Both types of QP had associated prize lists where the player could cash in their earned QP. The Afrosword was introduced as a possible reward obtained through Timed Quests. These online-based Timed Quests concluded in November of 2017 and the current offline-based version was introduced with patch 1.20.
