It’s the New Year! Don’t screw up January quests in all the celebration!

How to make sure you get your rewards for January quests

In JP it was actually a really big issue that their November (our January) was unclear and people were not getting their dungeons marked as cleared for the quests. This quick post will cover the complexities of Gungho’s decisions for making this set of quests to ensure you get your Rikku (well, at least can try to) at the end of the month!

For those that don’t know, January quests in NA will be specially marked boxes of Kellogs cereal dungeons in Special Dungeons (NO! Technicals or Coins DO NOT COUNT!) that, after clearing the Highest Difficulty without Dupes, will reward you a quest reward and if you clear all 15 throughout the month, you will get your shot at Rikku (basically a free Sherias Roots).

To ensure you get the rewards you deserve, follow these tips.


The quest dungeons will have this pink color and will have the text

Beat {Difficulty} without Dupes to complete the Quest!

where difficulty is the highest difficulty available for this rush.

I underlined the text in Green to make it stand out.


you ONLY need to beat the highest difficulty!

This is fine for the quest! The other rushes would only be to give you a stone if you didn’t clear them in the past.


be VERY CAREFUL not to use dupes on either team. Do not assume that just because it says Clear! that you’ve completed the quest!

At the top of your screen, click the Quest tab which I circled in Green in this image.

You’ll see the various quests, Pink Quests being time limited. I circled the January quest in this image in Green. Click it in your game.

Once you’ve clicked your January quest, a list of all the dungeons that will be available throughout the month along with a progress marker will be shown. After clearing the quest dungeon, CHECK THAT IT’S MARKED AS CLEARED IN YOUR QUESTS TAB AS SHOWN BELOW.

This is what it should look like after clearing. If it doesn’t show as Clear! then you have to go back and redo it.

It’s possible that the dungeon is marked as cleared in Special Dungeons before you even run it. It still counts as cleared from the last time these dungeons came to Special Dungeons but will not count for the quest!

Hope this helped! Don’t forget that these quests CAN BE COOPED. Head over the Puzzles and Kupo Carry Server for PAD discussions, help, coop and of course carries by clicking the banner below!


Some of the quests are set to reappear. This is because of the confusion in JP that caused Gungho to backtrack to make them come back again. It seems that they are premptively adding this into the schedule for NA. Here’s the reappearance schedule.
