Workflow settings has a setting to allow you to chose a different workflow task list, but how do you create a new workflow task list? I have a site which contains multiple lists with workflows being fired constantly with multiple tasks assigned for each. As such the default workflow task list is very large and impacting upon performance. I would like to create a separate workflow task list for each list (or even workflow) in the same way I have assigned each to a separate workflow history list but I have no idea who to create a new list which mirrors the standard set up.

I'm not sure whether site admin permission level is sufficient, you need to have access to a specific default template.
I do not know where the template is stored, but I would say somewhere in sharepoint's catalog.
I do not know whether there is other, more straightforward, way how to create a workflow task list, but you can as well do it with this little trick:
- navigate to the site content > add an app
- choose to add whatever new application
- click advanced option on the dialog that asks you for name of new application. you should be navigated to new page
- change in the page address ListTemplate to 107 and FeatureId to respective one acc. this table List of feature ID, listTemplate - Vinit`s SharePoint Space - Site Home - TechNet Blogs. after you press enter you should be navigated to a page that allows you to create new task list
