Reckoning side quests give you a chance to take a breather from the main story-line and farm some gold. During your journey through Kingdom of Amalur, you will be presented with various side-quests from different NPCs.
Completing these side-quests will result in rewards and XP which you can use to unlock new abilities and talents to make your character formidable.
