Side Missions are quests in Cube World.
They are revealed as Named Landmarks on the World Map with an icon indicating the available quest.
- Rescue / Kill quest
The NPC in need of rescue is one of the Gnome Suppliers. The icon for this quest is a gnome head with a green hat. The color of the text indicates it's difficulty*
To solve the quest you have to kill either a group of hostile mobs that are usually gathered around the captured Gnome; after defeating them he drops Loot.**
Sometimes there is a Boss to kill, that will give you the key to free the Gnome. (sometimes far from the Gnome but always in the named area)
