Every 7 hours and 50 minutes you will earn a major quest, up to a maximum of 10.
When you start a quest, you can choose between a minor quest or a major quest if one is available. The objective is the same, but the minor quest only gives 20% reward. You can skip your current quest at any time.
To complete a quest you must collect a certain number (between 50-59) of a specific quest item, which drop from a specific adventure zone. Alternatively you can activate idle mode (not the same as the Idle Mode adventure skill), which slowly gives you progress without having to collect the item yourself. An active quest will continue across rebirths.
Quest items only drop when you are on a quest and are adventuring in the zone where your current quest item is found. You will only be assigned quests for a given zone once you have completed the gear set for that zone (maxxed all items in the set).
The base drop chance for quest items is 5% from all enemies. It is increased by the Quest Drops special rather than regular Drop Chance specials, as well as through the Evil Difficulty perk "Improved Quest Looting".
You turn in quest items by right-clicking them, which will turn in all items that match your current quest, upping your quest progress counter. If you have more than you need to complete the quest, or items that don't match your current quest, the extra items will remain in inventory, and can be saved for a future quest that requires that item.
Quest items can also be turned in one at a time by Ctrl-left-clicking on them. If they do not match your current quest, the Beast will "eat them anyway" but your progress counter will not go up.
Quest items drop at level 0 and can be combined to increase their level. For each unique quest item type you level to 100, you get a permanent "completion bonus" multiplier of +2% QP.
Higher level items don't give more progress unless you have the perk "Bonus Quest Handin Progress", which only awards you an extra 1/10th (10%) of the value of the combined quest items at its base level. The divisor can be reduced from 1/10 to 1/2 with upgrades, meaning you can redeem (at best) 50% of the value of combined quest items. Combining them may still be better than having lots of surplus quest items clogging up your inventory or discarding them outright.
Quest items take 48 hours to level up in daycare.
There is no penalty for skipping a minor quest aside from losing any handin progress you may have already made. Thus you can cancel minor quests repeatedly until you get the quest zone you want, or to get a quest with a low number of required items. If you skip a major quest, you lose the opportunity to earn the higher QP associated with it.

Time to complete quest
Expected time to complete quest depends on players quest item drop modifier, respawn rate in seconds, idle attack speed (0.8 with maxxed Mysterious Red Liquid, 1 otherwise), number of quest items required and follows formula:
seconds = minutes
Since it's based on random drops it might take a little shorter or longer.
The time to complete a quest by idling is similar, but uses idle quest divider (8 by default, can be reduced to 3 by upgrades):
When idle questing, you will gain quest progress without having to be in any specific Adventure zone (you can even be in the ITOPOD).
If you get the "Truly Idle Questing" perk, when you are in idle mode quests will be handed in and new ones started automatically, with no interaction necessary. Quest assignments and progress are retained across rebirths. Items that improve quest drop percentages will improve your idle questing speed by the same amount. Items, quirks, NGUs, etc. that improve respawn rate also improve your idle questing speed.
There are several upgrades that improve different aspects of questing:
|Faster Questing!||Gain Major Quests 20% faster||250,000|
|Extended Quest Bank||Upgrade your maximum banked Major Quests from 10 to 50||125,000|
