Quests follow the main storyline of the game and are the place you'll spend most of your energy. They reward experience, gold and the occasional item.
Bosses come at the end of a series of quests. They must be defeated without running out of HP. They allow access to a new zone, and drop items including essences for raids.
None of the items below are certain to be dropped, although the chance is believed to increase on higher difficulties. Additionally, the final boss of each zone drops a special item when defeated on Nightmare.
