Your Thaumaturge side missions have their days counted

While following the main questline will give the best moments of awe and iconic cutscenes, the side quests are just as entertaining. However, if you are not sure if you want to spend a lot of your time during your adventure with side quests, then I have some news with you: they will disappear in time.

How the in-game timer works

You see, contrary to games such as Skyrim in which you can become the strongest warrior of them all and still have a level 1 side quest pending, the side quests in The Thaumaturge have a time limitation.

You see, the story of The Thaumaturge is divided into Acts, with each of them with a specific number of main and side quests. Depending on the actual quest, some side quests will last only for the duration of the Act or for a specific number of main missions.

You will know if they are about to disappear because there is a little timer just to the right of the quest’s name. This timer will begin to run out as you complete certain main quests, so you will know exactly when they will disappear. And no, visiting the Atelier or the Barber won’t drain the timer.

Be sure to complete side quests and don’t disregard them completely. By completing them you can get Flaws and even Salutors. Moreover, if you are hungry for story moments, these will provide a lot of lore and memorable moments.

If the quests disappear, you can load a previous save file. It might as well be worth it.
