Quests are a ranking system that was first added into Skylanders: Giants and further developed in Skylanders: Swap Force. In it, Skylanders need to complete various objectives in order to increase their rank and obtain bonuses - hats or stat increases.
They're divided into three categories:
- Five out of Nine are basic ones that are given to all Skylanders.
- Three out of Nine are based upon which Element the Skylander is from, including Elementalist which only changes by the Skylander's element.
- One out of the Nine is Special Quest specific to that Skylander.
The tier system is based on ranking up by completing 3 quests for each.
When any Three of the requirements are completed you are given a Bronze Ranking. In Giants, it unlocks the Bronze Top Hat for that Skylander, and in Swap Force, 25+ health.
When any Six of the requirements are completed you are then given a Silver Ranking. In Giants, it unlocks the Silver Top Hat for that Skylander, and in Swap Force, 25+ health.
When all Nine are completed you are given the status ranking of Gold. In Giants, it unlocks the Gold Top Hat for that Skylander, and in Swap Force, 25+ health.
