WRIT Quests

These quests are designed to make sure you are familiar with the game, the community, and research. For most of these quests, the way to get credit for them is by taking a screenshot and sending me the screenshot via email.

In the game, you can take a screenshot by doing the following:

  • On PC – Press the Print Screen (Prt Scr) button.
  • On Mac – Press the F13 function key. If you do not have this key on your laptop, you can change the key in the keybindings menu in WoW.

The screenshots are saved in your World of Warcraft folder under Screenshots.

For Quests involving the forums, you can take a screenshot on your computer by using the following:

  • On PC – Use Snipping Tool which is included by default on Windows.
  • On Mac – Press Shift Command (⌘) 3.

Pictures of the screen taken with your phone are acceptable as long as relevant items are discernible.

You are required to complete 10 WRIT Quests. You can complete up to 20 WRIT Quests for points. You receive 10 points (1 point per quest) for the first 10, and then 0.5 points per quest thereafter, up to a maximum of 5 extra points. However, if you complete more than 20 WRIT Quests, you will automatically earn an Achievement gift card at the end of the class.
