What the title says. I’ve noticed certain side quests have a different color on their names. This must mean something right? I’m assuming gray means optional, but what about the others?
The color of text indicates the value a quest has for its exp reward depending on your level. IIRC, it starts at red, then yellow, green, and gray. Any quest with green or gray text usually means the exp you get is too small for your current level.
But really, this shouldn’t happen with side quests, dailies, or missions, as the item rewards matter more than the exp. Some low level sidequests are a universal brown text while others, like Profession quests, stay gray.
